Question about Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

Washer does not agitate

Hi my washer model is frigidaire fex831.

The washer fills but will not agitate. It does fill and it definately spins. It does not agitate in any mode. In fact the only thing getting agitated is me! Ha ha!

I wonder if you could diagnose this.

Thank you,

Jamie Hershberger

    We have the same problem. The tub fills but does not agitate or spin. You can't look in to be sure because the top locks, but there is no sign of movement inside. Any sloutions are appreciated

    Same problem - washer won't agitate, but will drain and spin. It doesn't try to agitate, just fills and stops. If you move the dial to the end of the rinse cycle it will start to drain and then spin, but no agitation. We don't know if it is something to do with the timer, or if there is a problem with the motor, or transmission.

Hello Marjorie, thank you for your post!

From the information you have provided water will fill, drain and spin but your Frigidaire washer is not agitating. This could be a problem with your motor, belt, or pulley. Locating the problem is not a simple DIY job and I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional. They have the appropriate tools needed to disassemble your washer and prevent any future issues. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Replaced the belt and still not agitating, switch seems good


If the machine fills, won't agitate, wont drain or spin, then you need to replace the lid switch.
if machines fills, wont agitate, will drain but not spin, then you need to replace the motor coupling

The agitator will not spin


Hi,
The problem will be in the pressure starter kindly check whether water stops after certain level and ready for washing,if it is OK means kindly check the wire connections from the operational panel to the motor, in most of the case the timer will not send signal to the motor for that kindly change the operational panel and check it
