    Do you hear a click before the washer (attempts) to pump and/or spin?

I had the same problem. Checked the pump and it ran fine. Took off the door locking mechanism and put 120 ohms into the wax motor part and it tested fine too. I read about problems with that wax motor so I replaced the complete door switch today for $71.00 and the washer runs perfectly now. If it won't spin or even fully drain I suggest replacing the door switch.

Replaced the belt and still not agitating, switch seems good


If the machine fills, won't agitate, wont drain or spin, then you need to replace the lid switch.
if machines fills, wont agitate, will drain but not spin, then you need to replace the motor coupling

Fridgidaire 7 cycle - older model top loading washing machine wont drain


could be a stuck gear box. motor trying to turn it on the reverse rotation for spinning. it could be the motor that hums. or the belt could just be loose.

inspect the belt and see if it is loose and adjust it if necessary.

tnx 4 using fixya,
