See this post..... my Clutch Fix post. Follow this paragraph and reference the Service Manual to release and raise the washer top from the base to gain access to the wash basket and your load. Apr 24, 2009 - by dh1200s - Disconnect 120VAC power cord. Read and follow all safety warnings in the Service Manual The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference. Raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5? from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point. Rich

MY FRIGIDAIRE FRONT LOAD WASHER WONT FILL WITH WATER OR SPIN . HAVE TRIED CLEANING THE DOOR LOCK & UNPLUGGING IT FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME.


Sounds like the fill water solenoid has bust, they are cheap to replace and fairly easy. make sure you disconnect from power supply and water supply before trying.

My washer wont lock and now it does not spin why


The door has to lock as a safety to allow the machine to run. There is a switch on most locks to tell the machine to power the motor.
I would guess the lock solenoid has failed, or something has happened to the latch for the door.

Frigidaire front load washer. had problems with drain and spin,went through everything i have seen on here.was working until i put a large load of towels in. half way through the load sounded out of...


Door latch could be messed up from the large load//do you here the door lock when you start it ? if door is locking and basket is not turning at all even for adjitation then it is most likely the motor control board that board is located at the bottom of washer remove lower kick plate.if you inspect that board you may find a burnt spot. that can be caused from the overload of the motor /check those things let me know how you make out..good luck and thanks for voting

Have Fisher & Paykel washer GW11. 5 yrs old. Lid won't lock, Took off to repair, then put back on, no problem, but now won't lock, so won't spin. Help!


your door needs to be re-aligned so the wax motor assy can lock the door so the unit senses its locked and can continue the wash cycles

It fills up..washes..but wont drain or spin out..


I had the same problem. Checked the pump and it ran fine. Took off the door locking mechanism and put 120 ohms into the wax motor part and it tested fine too. I read about problems with that wax motor so I replaced the complete door switch today for $71.00 and the washer runs perfectly now. If it won't spin or even fully drain I suggest replacing the door switch.

Door won't lock and washer won't start


means your doorlock is either not alligned any more or you need a new door lock. Not overly easy to put in but it can be done.
Door latch can be obtained here and drawing is HERE
