Hi i have the same problem whit my washer ,were can i gate the pump ,because it for the coold water is brooking

Posted on Nov 04, 2009


First of all you have to remove 3 phillips screws from the lower front panel. I find it easier to tilt the machine back about 6 inches. Remove the panel and most models have the pump on the right hand side..Make sure you have a few big towels ready. I use a clamp off tool. Make sure unit is unplugged. There are 2 hoses with squeeze clamps on them. Remove both hoses and electrical hookup. There are 2 5/16 screws holding the pump in remove those and the pump will come out....Now just reverse it putting the new pump in...The back hose can be a little tricky but just take your time and make sure it is on tight and straight. That should get you going if that is the only problem...Hope this helped..............Micheal G.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Gallery Washer GLWS1233 leaks

Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.

  • The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.

  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.

During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

  • Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.

  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.

  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician fo Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Washer Model #WILL-1 - won't spin or pump out water

Can you access the location of you motor?

try to open the back and unscrew the cover and see if you can see the motor, try to start it but don't get near to much just enought to see if it is moving or not.

if it still running and rotating see the belt maybe it is too loose or maybe it is to tight,

But if it just humming, turn it off and unplug, see if you can rotate the motor with your hand, if you can then you'll need a starting capacitor, you got to buy one and install.

But if it is hard to turn even without a load, then you'll need to bring your motor to a service center to check for the bushing and shafting and lubrication.

your motor winding is still ok since you heard a humming sound, that problem would be the mechanical part.

SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire Gallery front load washer with E10 error code

When ours does that it is because of the hard water build up. We have to un-hook the hot water clean out the minerals and it stops doing it.

The reason it is not spinning out completely is because it sounds as though you have a partially sheared motor coupler which sits on the drive shaft and is located between the tub and gearcase (transmission). Does the tub spin during agitation?

Why does my frigidaire washer leak

Hello friend, I appreciate your post!

I see you are asking about a Frigidaire washer leaking but your question is labeled under refrigerators. If your washer is leaking it could be a problem within your motor, water valve, drain pump, or seal inside your washer. If you are speaking about a refrigerator it could be an issue within your water valve, water filter, or an air leak causing condensation.

I would recommend having a professional come out to the home for a proper diagnose and repair. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

The washing machine will ot fill with water

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire Gallery washer, model# GLWS1339EC, will not fill with water. First, make sure that the water supply is adequate in area where your washer is located. Secondly, make sure the water supply faucets are completely open. Thirdly, make sure water is not being used elsewhere in the house. The water pressure must be at least 30PSI. Try to avoid running water elsewhere, while the washer is filling. Lastly, make sure the water inlet hoses are not kinked. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire gallery washer

Not likely that the problem is a pump.. Water usually comes into the machine under the normal pressure of your water supply. Hence, pump problems usually manifest themselves by not pumping the water OUT of a machine. First, check that the electrical power is coming to the machine. If it is.... and your water is definitely turned on..... you most likely have a problem with a switch, or relay or something else inside the machine.. Probably time for a repairman...

Frigidaire Gallery Series # GLTF 2940FS The washer stopped running in mid rinse cycle. When I try to start it a clicking sound occurs.

You will need to check the drain pump and make sure there is nothing obstructing or restricting the flow of water.Once you know that is clear and the problem returns then you might have to change the main control board and possible the door lock.Also make sure to check the motor and all the wiring the motor.

Is there a water filter of the Gallery front loading washers?

Screens on the inlet hoses at the fill valve. None on the pump line going out.

Sounds like you have a bad water pump. Remove the hose going into the water pump and coming out of the pump and the pump should pull directly off the shaft check to make sure it spins freely.
