Drum won't spin.

Have a Frigidaire Front Load Washer model # GLTF1670AS0. The drum will fill with water and empty the water the spin cycle does't work.The drum won't turn.Motor doesn't run.Belt ok. Measured volts on the 6 pin plug ,#'s 5&6 and had 120 vac.Set timer on regular heavy wash cycle did test on 10 pin plug #'s 1,2,6,10 with the 5pin on the 6 pin plug and this reads 0.The next test is to check the contacts on the timer,1c to 1b,5c to 5b, and 7c to 7b for closed contacts,and 3c to 3b for open contacts.Don't have details of where this is located.Not sure if timer is bad? Has a fuse but has a white covering on the glass don't like to take this out of the board.I am hoping the motor didn't go bad.Washer is only about 3 years old. THANKS

    mine is a model FWT449gf about 10 years old with the same problem, the motor will not spin. I have changed the door latch and the motor control board. After doing this I put it on the high speed spin cycle and it worked.

    I thought that was it, so glued the front seal back on, added a load of laundry and Rats - same problem, motor will not spin. How do I check if motor is OK?

The best bet for this is to dump it, you will continue to have very expensive repairs with this machine. I have lost a ton of money working on these. When calls come in for them I turn them down now.

Why won't Affinity fill or spin?


Probably there is water in the drum or the pressure switch is jam in a state of "full of water" or washing machine didn't drain water .. So, the fault should be sought in the elements responsible for control the level (pressure switch, pcb...etc.) or control draining water (drain pump, pcb, filter....etc.).
The precondition that the machine goes into a spin cycle is that pressure switch folded down to position "empty of water".

My washer wont spin,


If you had to empty the water manually, i.e the outlet pump did not drain the water out then I would suggest the pump is either blocked or has failed. This will normally prevent the spin cycle from occurring. Try checking and cleaning the pump filter out.

The washer will not drain. It goes through all the cycles, fills with water, washes, but when it gets to any of the spin cycles, it stops. The hose going to the drain is NOT clogged.


This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum.
You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (not familiar which with the model you mention) there is probably a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom)

Kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise


2 possible issues with your washer.
1 or both the support shocks or springs have broken
the drum would look off center even when empty
or rear bearring has worn out.
this is a very common problem with the fridgidaire washer... (this kenmore is a frigidaire model)
problem is caused by very hard water (well water) or improper use of detergent. this machine uses a High efficency type detergent, marked by "HE" on the detergent container

High speed drum rinse ..drum not spinning during rinse cycle


Clean out coin collector thoroughly. Replace drain pump if necessary. Water will drain if you can place drain hose on floor and let water siphon out.
