Question about Washing Machines

Frigidaire Gallery washer is flooding the house

After wash cycle when I open the front door water pours out and a lot of it, more than usually fills the machine to wash and this is after the machine goes through a spin cycle and the machine shuts down and the timer control nob is setting at the correct position of off.

    I'm having the same problem and am not sure what to do. What's weird is that when I manually move it to the 'fast spin' part of the cycle it drains all the water out as it should.

Try turning water faucets off. Does it still flood when done? Does your drain hose empty into stand pipe that is at least 30 inches from floor? Make sure drain hose does not go anymore than a few inches into pipe. If it is pushed too far in, unit can syphon water back into unit.

Frigidaire gallery front load washer dripping sound


With any front load machine manufacturers suggest to leave the door open after cycles to help evaporate the water - this is even done in top loading machines nowadays. Also clean the unit with bleach water and rinse in high temp water cycles.

FTF530FS Front Load washing machine. Clothes smell.


all front load washers have the problem. Mold and a build up or dirt and soap and fabric softner cause s old musty smell. The low water use makes the machine dirty and build up inside. Run a few Hot water washes with out clothing, Run it empty ,(run your hot water neer your washer to get the cold water out of the house pipes) hot water and pour bleach in side, 2 or more cups. Keep doing it. When your not using washer leave the door open so air can get inside. Hot wash,es with bleach will keep it clean, also dont use fab softner.

Little water in Frigidaire front load washer


If the machine does not fill properly, it is usually because of a defective water level switch. This is also the cause for smelly clothes.

Water overflow


Are you on a well? Often people with a lot of sediment in water get sick of the screens in water valve plugging up so they remove them. NEVER remove these screens. If any sediment gets into valve it can hold it open causing flooding. If you unplug unit and water still comes in you must replace valve.
