Question about Frigidaire HE 3.1 cu. ft. Extra Large Capacity Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Will not go into final spin

The washer will go into high speed final spin, when there is no laundry in it. When there is any laundy in the washer, it will rotate slowly one way and then the other way, but it will not go to high speed fial spin. One of the shock absorbers was broken, so i replaced both shock absorbers with new ones. I thought this would allow the washer to reach high speed final spin, but it will only reach high speed final spin when it is empty. Any ideas? Thank you.

Final high speed spin very noisey


Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

Wsm2700dawww dryer will spin laundry still wet


Possible that the speed is of the spin is not enough, check the belt , check for friction to the shaft in the washer.
finally check the drain valve /pump as if there is water logged on without flushing then the valve is clogged or dirty.

Frigidaire Tumble Action washer won't complete the final spin. leaves clothes soaking wet.


Had the same problem and fixed with ease. The problem is with the door lock. There is a secondary locking mechanism that kicks in for the final spin due to the high speed. When the secondary lock goes bad the washer will not do the final spin. The replacement part is under $40 @ AppliancePartsPros.com .

It is possible the bearings on the motor that spins the canister could be going bad especially at the high speed. This could also be from clothes getting unbalanced in the final spin cycle. Hope this helps. This could still possibly under warranty!

Wet clothes after final spin cycle


There are two speed (or three) on most washer motors and what happens is that a motor speed will stop functioning--it will wash the clothes, but the high speed will not function. This also could be the controller, but more likely it is centered at the motor. It the motor is functioning, it coulfd be in the transmission of the machine--which may be the problenm since you heard a loud noise. I am not familiar with your machine, there could be an electronic switch for the transmission to go into high speed as well that has gone bad. I wish I had more direct knowledge of your machine.
