Frigidaire Washer Model FWT449GFS1

How can we put the Asmy-timer Knob which you pull out to turn wash cycle on???  The big know broke, we have a replacement but it appears that we need to pull out or remove more of the knob fixture. Part Number is 131446202

    took the top off but cant figure out how to get at the old knob to remove it.

    I have the same problem, except my model number is FWT 445 GES 1 (an older model, perhaps?). The centre shaft is black, not white, as described in the solution, and when I tried to turn it counterclockwise to loosen the rest of the broken knob assembly, nothing happened, it wouldn't turn. Any ideas? My replacement part number is very similar as well - 131446200

    I ordered the knob, but after looking at the washer I am not sure how to pull off the old know. Is there step by step directions?



    Thank you,


    Dan

Needlenose pliers grabbing the center shaft (white plastic around a brass center around a screw), turned counterclockwise will free the remainder of the broken knob and allow you to remove it and then screw on the new part.

The center knob screws off of a threaded shaft, counterclockwise. The outer dial you turn to set your wash cycle will now show an orange, tanged insert. You simply press in on both sides of the tang, at the same time, and pull the dial out. I've done it on the exact same machine

Frigidaire washer door catch is stuck, washer won't run


After looking at the schematic of this machine it seems that the door AND the control board have to work perfectly together in order for the safety mechanisms to operate correctly. You may have a bad control board or a loose wire. The best thing to do is look closely at a schematic and make sure that everything looks right. here is a blueprint: http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model/index.php?id=FWT449GFS1

Good Afternoon Leszek - Thank you for your question. Based on the symptoms you are describing it sounds like the unit has a faulty timer or a potential wiring failure. Try reprogramming the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. If issue persists, then at this point I strongly suggest reaching out to a professional that can accurately diagnose and repair the washer.

Hi, could be your timer motor, timer or water level switch, first push timer knob in and manually advance to wash or spin cycle (program) then pull knob, see if machine operates, let me know, then i can tell you exactly what's problem.also advance timer, to spin cycle (program) machine should pump out water, or you can lower drain hose into bucket and empty machine, you should empty machine and try again, let me know what happened, we can solved this together. good luck.

There should be a spring clip that holds the timer knob on. It or the timer knob may need replaced. Here is a picture of the timer knob and the spring clip. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

Wash cycle knob turns without controlling wash cycle


it's possible go to www.repairclinic.com and enter the numbers you have posted and it will show you what they are. I have the same problem. What I did was not pretty but it works for now. I broke a piece off of your part#387997 and simply turn my dial that way and then pull the center out to start the wash. Considering a new timer is close to $100+ and it works fine this way , well you know...

Door Locked and wont open


Mine is crazy too! Sometimes, if I open the soap dispenser it will open, othertimes not. Sometimes, if I pull up on the big, round knob (that you use to turn on the cycle), because it gets stuck down. Once in awhile, I just put it on the last 2 minutes of spin cycle again.
