If you can hear the motor during the agitate cycle, the the transmission has stripped gears.

SOURCE: Admiral Washing Machine not spinning

Make sure the safety switch that the lid operates is getting pushed down. Use a popcicle stick or non metalic object to push the switch in and try to get it to spin. This switch goes bad alot. It is in a wet environment. You will normally hear or feel a click when the switch is depressed. If not, use a putty knife or butter knife to push the top retainer in that are located at the front outer corners in the gap just where the top of the machine meets the rest of the unit. While pushing in you should feel a slight resistance but it should spring in and allow the top to lift up. Make sure to unplug the unit first.... Find the switch and unplug the two wires from it and use something like a paper clip or small wire to connect the two wires together. Let the top set back down, doesn't have to snap down and try to get it to spin again. If this works then the switch is bad... There are plastic parts on some machines that push this switch when the lid is closed that get broken off without you noticing until it just doesn't work right..

SOURCE: Roper washer, agitater stripped?

It sounds like you need to replace your agitator dogs (yes, there is such a thing). They are small plastic pieces that are used by the upper portion of the agitator to grip as it turns. This is a common problem when they wear out. If you go to, there's an illustration of what I'm talking about under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub Parts" heading. Item number 10 (part number 80040) is what you need to replace. Just type in your complete model number in the "Search by Model Number" block. The following link provides you with step-by-step instructions on how to do this:

You can find these same parts at and a cheaper price. Use the part number provided. I hope this helps you.

PS The item is priced for a package of 4.

I have a stackable washer and dryer from Frigidaire model# FEX831CSO. The washer will not agitate or spin but will drain. What might be the problem?

Good Afternoon Sarah, thanks for your post!

From the information you have provided the washer on your Frigidaire laundry center will not agitate or spin and will drain. This sounds like a possible issue with your motor or belt. In order to pinpoint the issue with your washer you may need to disassemble the washer and test each component for electrical issues and cosmetic damage. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend you speak with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

My Frigidaire stackable washer/dryer is having a washer issue. It will agitate, but will not pump out the water. When I manually move the timer switch, it will not spin at all. I bought a new timer...

Spinning won't start until the water level is low enough. Yup, it sounds like a pump issue. Check to see if the pump is not blocked by something. Get to it, my man. At Warp speed!

Frigidaire Model FEX831CSO washer doesn't work.

The pump that expels the water may be clogged or have a broken gear they are plastic. Thing like baby socks find their way into them and the clogged or break. New pump will be about 60 dollars if that is the problem, and someone to take old one out and put new one in. The diagram is usually somewhere on inside wall of washer taped, it includes a trouble shooting chart and part numbers.

Frigidaire FWT647GHSO when it gets to rinse first rinse cycle, it doesn't stop filling with water. It won't agitate or spin. It works well in the wash cycle, agitates and spins and advances

probably you've got something blocking the water pump from doing its job properly so check that the water pump is free running emptying all the water if not then there is a blockage in the pump normally ist a button, paper clip or other debris out of a trouser pocket eric

I have a frigidaire washing machine and it spins out just a small amout of water during the cycle, not a lot , have checked the pump and it works, just wondering if it could possibly be the lid lock

It would not agitate if it were the lid lock, just as agitation should stop when you open the lid during cycles. More likely it's something blocking the drain hose. Here is a link to an excellent online repair manual. Click on the picture of the wash machine, then go to chapter 2. Then have a look at Section 2-3.

Frigidaire washing machine (FTW3011KW0) runs through all cycles, agitates, pumps out water, but doesn't spin, nor does the motor attempt to spin during the spin cycle

Your main switch needs replaced. The motor that drives the switch operates because it goes through the other cycles, so the switch must be bad.

Frigidaire washer won't agitate

hi Cinebar.
this is what i found from the internet so not sure if this will be off help to you.
There could be several reasons why your Frigidaire washer will not agitate, including problems with the power supply, the wash cycle or the way in which the appliance was loaded. It is a good idea to try to resolve the problem with your washer yourself first since unnecessary repair call-outs can potentially be expensive if your appliance is outside its warranty period. Troubleshooting your Frigidaire washing machine will take about 15 minutes.
Confirm the water shutoff valves are open. If your Frigidaire washer cannot draw water from the pipes, it will not fill or agitate. The shutoff valves are usually located behind the washing machine where the water pipes meet the wall. Allow the washing machine to cool down for 30 minutes. Frigidaire appliances automatically shut off if the motor starts to overheat. The cool-down period lasts for half an hour if the appliance has not been switched off manually.
Verify that the detergent draw is tightly closed. If the dispenser is left open, the washer will not start or agitate its load. Push the draw so it sits flush with the front of the washing machine.
Ensure that the washing machine door is closed. As with the detergent door, the appliance will not start if the door is left slightly open, to prevent water from spilling onto the floor. Push the door closed until it clicks, and try your load again.
Confirm that your Frigidaire dryer is set to a spin cycle. If your dryer is set to a soak cycle or is currently in the soak portion of a longer cycle, it will not spin or agitate the wash. Make sure the appliance is set to a spin load and try again.
Contact Frigidaire if problems continue. You may be entitled to free service if your washing machine is within its warranty period. See Resources for Frigidaire's contact information.
