Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

1 Answer

Machine will run through entire cycle and will not spin. It quits at the spin cycle. I checked the Black boot at the bottom. Removed and cleared out coins. Checked pump- it was turning freely. Reinstalled boot. Error message 43 which indicates control board problem. I ordered control board part# 13700500 Installed- same error message. Unit will not spin. Will operate through all cycle and stops at spin. Ran diagnostic test. Turned program knob 8 clicks from start to position 8- Delicate. The drain pump and door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin and drain. Error code 43 repeats.

I had a similar problem and found out the "latch" on the washer door broke off. The machine won't run in spin cycle if the door is"open", but it would run through the wash cycle.

My top load Bravos washing machine wobbles during spin cycle.

Most likely suspension rods and bushings need replacing. Also check outer tub ring. Sometimes it will break from beating on sides of washer, behind where water comes out.

Washer wont spin. It went thru the whole wash cycle, but now it won't spin, and there is no error code. It comes on and the time counts down, but it doesn't spin.

Hello,Hi, If it doesnt spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Violent spin cycle on the Frigidare front-loading washer

I assume you bought it new, so on that basis, did you remove the transit packing materials inside the machine ?

Front loading washing machine normal design is for the drum assembly to be supported by two or more springs at the top, and two dampers at the bottom. This allows the drum to move in a controlled fashion and also minimises vibration, particularly during spinning.
When the machines are shipped from the factory, transit packaging is put inside the machine to ensure that any shocks to the machine during transit dont damage the springs or dampers. This must be removed before use otherwise you get pretty much the symptoms you describe.

The manual that cam with it will show you how to remove the transit packaging. In such a short time I suspect you wont have suffered any damage, but take the transit packaging out as soon as possible.

Bosch WFF1800 - not spinning


move the kicking plate on the front-bottom of the machine. You will see o circular lid there, turn it on anti-clockvise to open. All of the water blocked will come from there, be careful. Look carefully that there are some objects blocking the water draining. Then turn on the machine on draining programme, the plastic rotor should turn fastly when the machine is on. If it is not running, change the pump motor. If it is running, but machine is not draining again you can understand that there is an objeck stuck on the hose between drum and pump motor. Lay down the machine on its rear facade, you will see a large and black hose between drum and pump motor. When you remove it, you will see that there is something that blocks water running.

thank you for using fixya,rate my answer,

Green slime in coffee machine

Try running a couple cycles through of full strength vinegar. If that doesn't do it run a weak bleach solution (6 to 1 / water to bleach) through it. Repeat vinegar every week then once a month if it clears.

Washing machine did not complete rinse/spin cycle.

We had the same problem, the pump was clogged. First UNPLUG THE WASHER! Tilt the washer back slightly and there are two screws that hold the bottom front panel on. Remove them and pull down on the panel to remove it. To the right you will see the pump. Mine has a large black collector boot coming from the tub. There are three clamps connecting the lines to the boot and on large ring clamp connecting it to the tub assembly. Remove as much of the standing water from the tub as you can. We were able to get ours to drain after a couple of cycles. We also raised ours up on blocks to put a basin under it. It helps to have a shop vac ready incase you have a lot of water. Once you remove the clamps take the black boot out. There is a plastic strainer in the boot. I found a sock, wires and $1.26 in change in mine. Look under and check the pump impeller. Check the drain line to your house sewer standpipe (I sucked it out with the shop vac). I replaced two of the compression clamps with regular radiator clamps, to make the next time easier. Clean and dry the underside, before using. Run a load to check for leaks before replacing the front panel.

There is an obstruction in the drain pump. The only way to clear the obstruction is to remove the lower panel at the front by removing the 2 screws at the lower edge. This will allow the front panel to drop down. You will need to unplug the machine for the next part.

Now this will get a little messy... Be sure to have a lot of towels nearby to sop up the water. On the lower right hand side there is a pump with a black bellows attached which is also attached to the bottom of the tub. This black hose is clamped to the front of the pump if you unclamp the hose the remaining water in the system will spill out. You will have to reach inside the bellows and remove whatever obstruction is inside. some models will have a trap inside which may have to be removed from the top of the hose assembly by unscrewing the clamp on the bottom of the tub.

The hose will have to be reattached in the reverse manner. It can be quite tricky to do so... Once the machine is back together you can run a rinse and spin cycle, it should go into the full spin when all the water drains.

This procedure may have to be repeated a couple of times to completely remove all of the carpet fibres.

removed and disassembled inlet water valve - minature basket filter was clogged with white particulate which felt gritty.  cleaned and reassembled and reinstalled.  Works fine now.  Idiot repairman never mentioned a filter but wanted to replace entire valve at cost of 140 dollars including service call.   sears sux bigtime. And, from my experience with Fixya, so does your service since I never heard a thing since July EXCEPT for an offer to upgrade.  Thanks for nothing.
