Question about Frigidaire FWS833A Top Load Washer
Yes! to let you know that this is NORMAL when the washer agitates, due to the "Westinghouse" designed transmission, which in turn is called the "Franklin" design.When the agitator returns back stroke the washtub "indexes" before the agitator strokes forward. Thus moving the load around through the water while being moved back and forth.
Plus! to let you know that since the washer does NOT have "brakes" to stop the washbasket and hold the basket this design allowes the "indexing". This is one of the main reasons your washer has a safety lid interlocking device on it to lock the lid when it spins, because the washer has no brakes to stop the machine if the lid is opened during a spin cycle.

Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
