Question about Frigidaire FWS833A Top Load Washer
Fills up with water, runs through 16 minute wash cycle, but will not drain water or go into spin cycle. Stops when it reaches spin on timer. We replaced the timer and pump but did not change anything.
The most common cause of a no spin problem is a faulty door/lid lock and switch assembly. It is a safety feature of the washer not to spin or tumble when the door/lid lock is not activated. The washer will tumble for the first few minutes while it is detecting the door/lid switch but will not advance if the switch is not activated. If the washer is indeed a Frigidaire FWS833A Top Load Washer, the lid lock is part number 131675600. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock. Begin with the removal of the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the washer then slide the panel rearward and lift it off the washer. The lid can now be removed and replaced; remove the screws securing it to the cabinet and pull it off. Secure the new lid lock in place and connect the wires. Reinstall the top panel and secure it back in place.
