Non-tumble I can not use the "non-tumble" feature like with a sweater. I put in the shelf but the drum still tumbles even though i have the right dial selection. Any idea?

How to fit belt on Creda Reversair 37643 Tumble dryer


New belt is very tight, so you have to use more strength. Put it on motor and all other on "drum". Spin it easily and slowly but with strength until its done.


Be carefully, use gloves.

Clothes not clean after washing


Were the settings appropriate for the clothing?
The settings on the machine should be set properly for the load. Different fabric types require different wash/rinse temperatures, spin speeds, and wash times. Always follow the instructions printed on the fabric care label. The soil level needs to be set in accordance with the load type. Heavily soiled clothing will not come clean with a light soil level setting.
Was the proper detergent used?
If too much detergent is used, or non-HE detergent is used, the machine will not wash properly. Too many suds present during a wash decreases tumbling action and will not rinse out well. Furthermore, detergent residue built up in the machine over time will deposit extra detergent on clothes and deposit soil back into clothing.

Was the washer overloaded? If the machine is overloaded, the machine will not wash and rinse properly. When the washer is overloaded, the clothes have no room to tumble, and the cleaning performance of the washer is reduced. In addition, when the clothes are packed tightly inside the drum the detergent and water will not distribute evenly throughout the items.

Front loaders require regular maintenance to ensure optimum performance. If this maintenance is not followed, residue can accumulate in the drum resulting in detergent and soil being deposited back into clothing. This can also lead to odor and other issues. Perform the required maintenance regularly (once or twice a month).

Frigidaire tumble action washer will not agitate or spin. Drain water fine. One of the shock absorbers is broken. would this be the problem? The belt is fine.


Yes there are several balance switches in the unit and if the shock is broken at least one switch has been activated. If you were to some how bypass the switch the unit would be very dangerous to even be near during the spin cycle as it would try to walk, tumble or jump across the room! The switch is a safety feature for all concerned.

Please get your machine repaired.


Thanks for using FixYa!

Drum will not spin


If your water keeps flowing out, it could be that the pipe behind is not at the correct level, about three feet from ground level; your pump pumps the water out OVER this height. It should not be at ground level.
