Question about Frigidaire FWS1339A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Frigidaire Washer Model # FWS1399EC

My washer is not putting any water in the tub in the wash cycle. You can put it on any part of the cycle and all you get is spin. The washer only wants to spin with or without water and on any part of the cycle.

The selector knob has gone bad. The selector will have to be replaced. I've seen a lot of Frigidaires with the same problem.

Clean tub options keeps blinking on affinity frigidaire fafs4474lwo model

Hello Jodi, thank you for your post!

Your Frigidaire washer (FAFS4474LW0) will automatically prompt you to run the CLEAN WASHER cycle typically every 50 cycles. If you wish to begin the cycle, press SELECT when prompted. This maintenance cycle uses hot water and two rinses to remove residue that may cause odor. For best results, I recommend to use the CLEAN WASHER cycle once a month

You may press the CANCEL button to manually perform the cycle at another time if you prefer. You can do this by following these directions:

    ·Rotate cycle knob to Rinse & Spin
    ·Then press the CLEAN WASHER option button
    ·The LCD screen will display "SYSTEM CLEAN"

    Hope this helps! - Z

Will not rinse or spin

I have had similar situation with my top load washer over the years. It has been the timer 3 times and the water pump 1 time.
How I came up with it being the timer. The knob which you set it on the type wash you want. Put it on a different cycle and see if it completes the wash cycle. example if my washer is not working when I put it on heavy wash cycle I might put it on the casual wash cycle. If you change the wash cycle and it goes through the complete cycle it is probably the timer which is part of the knob you change for different wash cycles with.
If it stops when it is time to empty the tub on all cycles it may be the water pump which empties the tub. The one time I had a problem with the water pump it was a small piece of coal had the pump locked up. I never figured how it got out of the tub and to the pump but I put it back together and it worked fine.
It should not go into the spin cycle if the tub is full of water.
Two of the timers I bought cost 40 - 60 dollars. One was 140 dollars I bought a new washer that time because the washer only cost 220 dollars.

Frigidaire (LTF2940E) Washer starts, stops, starts, stops...

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
