Do the following.

  1. Switch off the machine, unplug or disconnect the mains power to the machine and turn off the water supply to the machine.
  2. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
  3. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked or restricted.
  4. Also check that the main waste drain pipe and one way valve to a sink waste connection if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
  5. Access the pump from under the lower rotor arm and protective grille and check that the impeller is free to move and is not clogged or restricted by debris or sludge. Clean as required.
  6. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
7. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power. It is a good idea to take digital pictures of the pump assembly before attempting to work on it or remove it so that you can refer back to it when you reassemble the unit or replace it with a new unit at a later date / time.
8. Remove and check the electrical connections to the pump and make sure they are in good order.
9. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage. If they are then clean them thoroughly.
10. Then remove the pump and check motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. Also check that the pump impeller vanes are in good order and not blocked. If necessary replace the pump with a new and identical unit.
11. Carefully reassemble the pump observing the correct placement of gaskets, seals, O Rings, hoses and securing straps, electrical wiring.
12. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.

I have a front loader washer and can not get it off of locked door what can I do so it opens


A model would be nice. On my Frigidaire Gallery, you have to press and hold the Options and Select buttons until it unlocks. Unplugging didn't work for me, so one time I had to run a cycle until it finished to get the door unlocked - it didn't like being stopped mid-cycle. Another time, I unplugged it for a good while until it reset. I wouldn't try to force it open, you will break something you don't want to have to replace.

Frigidaire gallery washer


Hello Eugene - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. Wait roughly ten minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle and verify if the washer continues to fill. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, your appliance could be experiencing a communication error with the control board, faulty timer or could have a wiring failure. I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause.

Water filling tub on washer


First thing is to run the machine as normal. After the cycle is complete and the clothes are removed, turn the water off, hot and cold, to the machine. If on the next usage there is no water in the tub then the fault has been found. And, no, the water valves are fairly easy to access and replace if needed.
