Hello.

Usually the spinning issue is caused by the water not pumping out, even as the washer attempts to initiate the spin cycle. Try this: Unplug the washer. Remove the front kick panel, and locate the strainer. It will be located between the drum and the pump. Open and clean the strainer. Careful, there will be water here. While you have the strainer open, look as best you can up into the pump impeller. If you see anything hung up in there, you'll need to get it out. If not, reassemble the strainer. It's best to lubricate the "O" ring and threads on the strainer with a little silicone spray. Hopefully, you'll find enough in the strainer to explain your issue, and your washer will again to work as advertised.
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution....Thanx!

On my front-loading stacked Frigidaire dryer, the clothes are coming out of the washing machine nearly dripping wet. What is the best way to deal with this?


Final spin does not appear to be working. Clothes are soaking wet after the buzzer has gone off. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks.

My wash machine wash the clothes but not doing the final spin, all the clothes all soak and wet


Handyman here -

Its possible that the door is not locking properly. If the door doesn't lock the machine will wash, but not spin the clothes dry. If you wait 15mins or so after machine is done, then set cycle to spin, it will pump any water that has dripped off your clothes out, but again it will not spin. Helps a little.

Good Luck!

The washer won't spin dry. It fills and empties but the clothes are soaking wet.


If washer is spinning but clothes are wet suspect a partial blockage in the outlet pipe. This will cause the water to drain to slow and leave some in the outer drum while spin occurs but this ends up back in the clothes.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Clothes are soaking wet after the entire wash cycle.


The motor controller is likely bad - not getting to the HIGH spin.

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...


The problem is a faulty Door Latch Assembly. The same thing happened to my Frigidaire front load washer. The part is easy to install, costs about 60 dollars and can be picked up at most appliance repair stores . To access the switch just remove the wire around the front drum gasket, peel back the rubber gasket beside the switch assembly then remove the two screws holding it in place. remove the three wire connector blocks and swap in the new switch. My washer was giving me error code 41 witch is a faulty control board. But the problem was in fact only the switch...
