Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

Open Question

Washer/dryer stack unit, Ser #XE83801948, Model GLEH1642FS1, purchased Dec. 2008, appears that the washer draining pump has a problem as it started making a loud grinding noise when it started to drain. This is the second time I've had a problem with a Frigidaire stack unit. The last time (prior to Dec 2008) that unit was less than 4 yrs old and the washer drum spines rusted and 2 of them broke. Is there something inherently wrong with this type of unit? If I have to replace this one, I will probably not purchase Frigidaire again. Geri Allen Blythe, California

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Washer Making Loud Grinding Noise

not nesseccarrily your pump, possible you have a rear bearing going bad, which will sound as if a helicopter is coming through your laundry room. ( noisy pump can be the issue , honestly a better and cheapre problem to have) in order to determine if its apump problem you can remove the lower access panel and unplug the pump then start the spinn cycle, if it still loud the pumpms not hte issue.

You replace the whole drain pump. Pretty easy to do from the opening in the bottom by resting the unit on its back. (Make sure you drain the unit completely) You should be able to get the drain pump (pt #4681EA2001D) from http://www.encompassparts.com/lgconsumer/ for less than $50 + s&h.

My Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer goes through the cycle till it gedts to drain, then nothing... pump out?


Hello trinileigh19 - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have either the pump or timer diagnose.

Washer stopped during spin cycle


Hello, try to checked the pump filter, and the pump is actually working. then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump works fine then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Thanks

Whirlpool wshser-dryer: water won't drain, cycles won't start


You need to give more info in order for a diagnosis. Is this a compact stack unit or an all -in -one unit or an interconnected washer/dryer pair ? Is it front load or top load washer ? What do you mean by "dry cycle"? Is that dryer cycle or is it washer cycle without water ?
Usually when water cannot be drained it is a bad coupling connector on the motor drive, or a bad or clogged pump (small socks have been known to get sucked in an lodged in the pumps); in either case you need a good mechanic or a service person to handle the repair because it requires opening up the shell of the unit and getting to the motor/pump assembly.As always, disconnect the power cord before diving into the unit. Good Luck, Macgivor.

Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer / Dryer WON'T DRAIN


Did the unit ever drain? If it did, has anything changed?

Make sure the drain hose in back has not pinched (unit slid backward against the wall, pinching the hose.).

Motor is two speed, and if it's not kicking to the high speed, then there may be a timer problem.
