Frigidaire washer FWT445GES2 Front Loader won't agitate or spin

My washer will not agitate or spin but will run through the cycle (filling with water and draining). I have ruled out the speed controller and timer (new). The motor does not run when the belt is off and electricity is applied.

The door lock assembly makes a low level buzzing noise after the door is closed and the washer starts. However this noise has been going on for about a year before the washer stopped agitating and spinning. The door lock light comes on and the door locks. I have tried to slightly push on the door to get a better connection but it does not change anything.

The motor was removed and taken to a service place where it was tested for continuity and seemed to check out. It was set on the counter and the tech connected the aligator clips and turned the pulley manually and checked the ohms.

    I have exactly the same problem. I replaced the Motor and the Speed Control Board. On mine, the problem may be coming from the RTC thermocouple (I traced everything on the wiring diagrams).

    Hey Guest: I saw your addition to my problem. Let me know if that is the problem. I have replaced the motor, timer, door lock harness. Now it will spin and do everything else. The only thing it will not do now is agitate!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: Door Lock Clicks/Makes noises Washer does not agitate/spin

Sounds like very worn motor brushes to me, as its trying to turn the drum but has'nt the power needed to maintain any momentum,and the blinking door light is because of the bad cotact from brushes to motor.About £20 for a set of brushes or get an engineer to fit new brushes,but get a price first.

Washer won t fill water


pipes maybe clear but is your area wher you live prone to limescaling? where the water pipe/pipes go into the machine there is a switch to shut on/off the flow of water during whatever cycle you want.this might be blocked or sticking. first try to select different cycles and see if any of those fills the machine with water. if no water comes its one of two things. that switch is faulty or communication between the switch and the front consule is at fault.
contact your supplier after trying to go thru a few different cycles.

Frigidaire FWT647GHSO when it gets to rinse first rinse cycle, it doesn't stop filling with water. It won't agitate or spin. It works well in the wash cycle, agitates and spins and advances


probably you've got something blocking the water pump from doing its job properly so check that the water pump is free running emptying all the water if not then there is a blockage in the pump normally ist a button, paper clip or other debris out of a trouser pocket eric

My frigidaire front load washer will start a wash, complete the first cycle but then stop and flash all the lights and beep continously until I press "start" or "cancel". If I press "start" again it just...


Hello there:
If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle should 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. than check the cold water supply line and the filter

My front loader will not spin and drain completely can you tell me what may be causing this problem? thanks


the pump is clogged so,put Draino-max in the drum and wait 1-2hrs. this gets rid of the pet-hair strings etc. out of drain.Run on heavy-duty use hot-water it may take 2-cycles to open the drain,also chek to see if hose is not clogged.

Washer won't drain or spin


top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin

Frigidaire washer won't agitate


hi Cinebar.
this is what i found from the internet so not sure if this will be off help to you.
There could be several reasons why your Frigidaire washer will not agitate, including problems with the power supply, the wash cycle or the way in which the appliance was loaded. It is a good idea to try to resolve the problem with your washer yourself first since unnecessary repair call-outs can potentially be expensive if your appliance is outside its warranty period. Troubleshooting your Frigidaire washing machine will take about 15 minutes.
Confirm the water shutoff valves are open. If your Frigidaire washer cannot draw water from the pipes, it will not fill or agitate. The shutoff valves are usually located behind the washing machine where the water pipes meet the wall. Allow the washing machine to cool down for 30 minutes. Frigidaire appliances automatically shut off if the motor starts to overheat. The cool-down period lasts for half an hour if the appliance has not been switched off manually.
Verify that the detergent draw is tightly closed. If the dispenser is left open, the washer will not start or agitate its load. Push the draw so it sits flush with the front of the washing machine.
Ensure that the washing machine door is closed. As with the detergent door, the appliance will not start if the door is left slightly open, to prevent water from spilling onto the floor. Push the door closed until it clicks, and try your load again.
Confirm that your Frigidaire dryer is set to a spin cycle. If your dryer is set to a soak cycle or is currently in the soak portion of a longer cycle, it will not spin or agitate the wash. Make sure the appliance is set to a spin load and try again.
Contact Frigidaire if problems continue. You may be entitled to free service if your washing machine is within its warranty period. See Resources for Frigidaire's contact information.

Frigidaire front loader


Can you hear the motor running? If so it will be the belt. If not simple could be the wiring..connection at the motor or broken wire. Brush's..very common at about 4-6 years depending on usage. or the controller.

Wont spin or agitate


Not sure what you mean? if you have normal wash action then it is agitating in the wash cycle.  Otherwise if it doesn't agitate or spin but does fill with water then your motor or motor control board is bad.
