Motor wont run

I replaced the shocks and upper spring that was broken. Now the machine will fill and drain but not spin. This is a front load frigidaire washer. I dont know if it could be a wire or the motor or how to tell.

Your door lock is bad. Don't trust the door lock light because this will fool you. Even tho door locks 1 of the circuits is not continuing. Replace the door lock. Very easy to do. Do this by peeling back the door boot at the lock side. Reach hands inside for access to wiring and remove door lock switch.

I have a Frigidaire front load washer that is suddenly making loud banging noise during spin cycle, could it be a belt?

Check for broken/disconnected springs, disconnected/faulty shock absorbers (dampers). For this you have to disconnect the mains power and open up the machine. Spares can be obtained from this very site - Fixya.

Frigidaire gltf1670as0 front load washer not agitating or spinning. fills drains and progresses through the cycle otherwise fine.

Hello paigeterrajr - Well, if there isn't any motor movement, it could be the door switch, the motor, or the main control board. Since the shock absorber could possibly be broken as well, it is possible that the unit thinks that it is not balance properly which will prevent it from going into a high speed spin/agitate. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Frigidaire gltf1670a front load washer not agitating or spinning. Can my broken shocks have anything to do with that?

Your broken shocks could have disconnected some wires due to the vibration. Plug off the wall, open up the machine to examine. In the process you have to change the shocks. Disconnect and refit each terminal, especially the connector to the motor.

Front load washer, water enters but the drum will not rotate or turn. when the control is advanced to spin wahser will drain but no spin action.

After removing the back from the washer I discovered that the shock on the left (looking in from the back) is broken. Also looking at the control board there is power on both sides of the fuse and after removing the belt the motor will not turn when control is placed in the wash or spin position.
My issue now is removing and replacing the shock and determining if the motor or the control board is the problem.
I will send an additional message on the solution that I came up with.

Frigadaire front load washer, drum is very low in

Is the drum bouncing around?
Remove the front lower panel and the top from the cabinet. Replace the shocks and/or tub support springs if they are broken.
If the spin is noisy, there might be a problem with the inner basket or the tub bearing.
Good luck!

My washer wont spin

Your symptoms that indicates a broken motor coupler. If your washer will drain and fill but has not agitation action or spinning action that would indicate a broken motor coupler. The motor coupler links the drive motor to the transmission.

Shocks broke, now drums spins freely

What you need to check thoroughly are the belt & the 2 shocks (dampers). The dampers should be replaced & fitted tightly, broader ends fitted below.
