SOURCE: Frigidaire Front load washer

Going to take a little surgery. Most likely a small sock or other article made its way down the drain pipe and clogged against the pump.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Series front load washer. I've had to do the following at least six times in the last year and a half. Each and every time, it was an errant sock from my three year old.

First, unload all the wet clothes into a garbage bag. Then **** out all the water using a wet/dry vac. You need to do this for safety reasons because you're going to be tipping the washing machine back and having water slosh around could cause it to fall on you.

Once you've sucked out as much as you can, pull the washing machine out from the wall by about three feet. Then with the help of someone, tip it backwards so that it rests against the wall. Have your friend hold it in place.

At the bottom on the front are two screws holding a panel on. Remove those to gain access to the guts.

If you look to your right side you'll find a pliable rubber boot mated to a hard plastic pump. Using a pair of channel locks or other suitable pliers, squeeze the wire clamp down and pull towards yourself. Be prepared for some water spillage when it comes off. I usually put some towels under the pump area and then use the wet/dry vac to **** the rest of the water out of the rubber grommet area.

Once this is off, you'll most likely find something clogging up the pump (the hard plastic part). Pull that out and essentially reverse your actions up to this point to put it back together. I will warn you it takes some patience to get the pliable rubber boot and clamp back in place on the pump inlet. Sometimes it takes me four or five attempts and I've done this a few times already. The key is to make sure you've made a good seal and the wire clamp is holding securely.

If you bought the under washer/dryer storage boxes, you might be able to get away without tipping it back, but I don't know for sure. The important thing is to try and get as much water out as possible.

Good luck.

sounds as if theres something stuck in your drain pump, youll need to remove the lower acess panel(2 screws across the bottom front of unit) you'll see teh pump in the rigth hand corner. i would remove as much water as possible before trying to remove the hose to the pump or you will get soaking wetaferer removig the hose youll be able tro see what trapped in oyu pump preventing free draining.. VERY common problem.DISCONNECT POWER THE DRAIN PUMP IS ALWAYS LIVE!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: washer wont spin

either a bad motor control board or your coin catcher is full of stuff. i would check the coin catcher first. open the front panel and you can see the pump the coin catcher is the part that comes from the bottom of the tub to the pump.Careful when you take it out there will be water in it and you will have to be ready with a towel or shop vac. put it into drain first before taking apart. it will not drain all of the water.

It doesn't spin If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or 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.


It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. 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.


  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.


  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

Where is the coin catcher on a frigidaire front load washer?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know where the coin catcher is located. The coin catcher is located inside your washer, at the bottom right-hand side, attached to the drain pump. If you want to get to the coin catcher, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire Affinity Front-loading washer wont do anything


Check the wall socket with another electric gadget. Check your washer plug fuse. Finally open up the rear (after taking the washer power cord off the wall of course!) and disconnect and reconnect all wires and connectors one by one. Possible it could just be a loose connection somewhere. Sometimes happens due to vibration.

Click so pl if helped.

My Frigidaire Commercial Series FCCW3000FS 27" Coin Operated Front-Load Washer will not agitate or spin clothes out. Please HELP!


You should check your serial number at this link:http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml09/09292.html


There was a voluntary recall issued on your model number. The serial number will confirm if your machine is affected.


As to your problem, i would still suspect drain pump is struggling or inoperable. However if it seems to drain ok and your pump is still relatively quiet except for a nice mellow steady hum (there should be no rattling sound) then i'd take a look at the pressure switch. The pressure switch sends the signal to begin agitation (water level in tub is full) and spin (water in tub is drained.)

Coin washer fccw3000fs does not start


Possible fault with the program controller unit unless there is coins jammed up within that prevents the cycle to restart, But if so there will be error indication . Check the power to the unit, to confirm if this is not a power supply issue

Washing machine wont come on but i check the plugs and the push button are okey . you know any other parts that needs to be replace ? thank you.


If this is a kenmore front loader (boxy type made by frigidaire), the button must be
depressed for several seconds. The second problem with this model is the "coin
mechanism" cam must be in the correct position to operate the machine. If someone
puts in coins two times without starting, it can get out of sequence with the timer.
If you have a key, open coin box and move the metal arm back until the cam advances
to just before the big dip. (with the unit unplugged). The next cycle will allow the
arm to drop and engage the microswitches. If you don't have a key put coins in the
slide mechanism as though you were going to start the machine and
depress button until machine starts, this will reset the cam to the correct position.
Hard to explain but if you look at the coin mechanism, it will become obvious.
If you need a new mechanism it is called the "start mechanism" for front loaders.
Hope this helps.
