Check your outlet filters, clean out. The machine will not spin if the filter is blocked. Also check your inlet into the machine. Clean screens on both ends of the pipes. Refit carefully. If you have manual, check for filter cleaning.

Why frigidair washer machine agitate not spinning

Thank you for your post, friend!

I understand that your Frigidaire washer is not spinning. Some possibilities to why it is not spinning could be the belt, motor, pulley, control panel or drum. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. -Matt

Washer won't spin unless I give the belt a little push to get it to start moving. The belt looks warn and has a small crack in it. Is the belt the only problem or is there something else I need to...


Sounds to me that the belt defiently needs to be replaced since it is cracked and streched.
Hate to tell ya wait and see but replace the belt for sure and see what happens,but to check a little further if the pulley that tightens the belt(idler pulley) is not missing a chunk of plastic and it spins free when flung with your finger i would say its ok, also you can check the spring on idler pulley by pushing it in and as long as it returns to where it was quickly its ok and just the belt is needed

Hope this helps and if it does please give me 4 thumbs up

The tub does not turn in the rinse/spin cycle but the motor is running.

Hello Jwwood,

Your Frigidaire GLTF2940F washer is not moving when it is washing clothes. This is because the belt is broke you can locate the belt on Before you order the belt you need to findout the length as there are many different lengths and styles. In order to get to the belt you need to remove the back of the unit. If it is broke as I beleive measure and post back to this thread or go to the following link find the proper size and order. LInk -

Thank you for choosing

My washer squeals during spin cycle model frigidaire fex831cso. Sometimes it does it on the highest speed it reaches other times at slow speeds. One thing that is constant is... once it starts squealing...

The belt on my was the culpret. The washer belt has a spring loaded idler. Unplug power and move the idler off of the belt and use a spring hook or longnose vice grips to pull spring out of slot and into the next slot closser to you. There are 5 slotts. Push idler back by hand and put belt back on it. Your done. The transmission just spins as a unit in spin cycle, it does sit on top of a bearing,but that didn't seem to be the problem. If the belt tension doesn't fix it, put some grease and oil in the bearing or replace it.
Eventually you will need a new belt so order one now.
