Pump making loud noise when draining water


Sometimes the coin trap needs to be emptied, coins and hard objects that fall out of pockets will end up there. Mine will make noises every year or so and I have to empty it. It's not difficult, you just have to lie on your back to get to it. Your manual should tell you where it is, if that is the problem. Good luck.

It will not let the water out or spin I think it is the water pomp how do I change the pump I have a frigidaire tumble action washer


First try pressing the start and cancel buttons for about 3 seconds and see if there is an error code, then you can troubleshoot from there....Have you checked the drain lint trap? It is inside the accordian looking drain hose that attaches the drum to the pump. It may be clogged. Use a wet/dry shop vac to remove as much water as possible. Unplug the machine. then remove front panel and remove clamps to check if it is clogged. Hopefully that is the problem!

High speed drum rinse ..drum not spinning during rinse cycle


Clean out coin collector thoroughly. Replace drain pump if necessary. Water will drain if you can place drain hose on floor and let water siphon out.

Grinding Noise when Washer Attempts to Spin


It is probably the same problem because it is trying to drain during the spin cycle. My machine sounded as though a chain wis clanking, the solution was removing a coin caught in the drain pump. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.

Water Will not drain after cycle


The filter for the drain is located under the drum assembly. It is inside the rubber cover between the drum and the pump. It has 3 clamps that you will need to remove, than you can get at the filter inside the rubber housing. It will be clogged with coins, or lint from the wash, and once this is cleaned, the machine will work like new.

Load noise in final spin cycle


turn the tub on the inside if it feels ruff as it turns and makes a noise then most likely you have a bad rear bearing, if it is smooth in turning and no noise then turn to drain or spin possibly something stuck in drain pump. the drain pump will start up first if you hear the noise then the drain pump is accessed from the front lower cover, if its the rear bearing probably not worth fixing about 400.00 in parts and alot of work.

Frigidaire Tumble Action Washer won't move to the next cycle


your pump is blocked or faulty a way to check is pull your washer out put your outlet hose to the ground placed either in a bucket or out the door if water comes out pump is faulty if it doesnt than its blocked were your outlet pipe goes into back panel is were your pump is make sure washer is switched off undo tip up undo clamp water will come floding out better of doing this outside if it comes out of pump than your pipe is blocked
