There are 2 electronic modules in these machines, which often suffer voltage surges/shorts and cook. They can be repaired, but not cheaply. This happened to me a few times before I gave up on F & P washers, because they are basically ****.

The tub is probably pretty dirty. Try cleaning the washer with CLR.

Smell coming from AWN32 speed queen top loading washer


All washing machine "smell" when the lid is left closed for more than one day. If it is really bad it might be something inside the body of the machine or something caught under the agitator.
Inside the body work. Unscrew the three screws at the bottom of the front panel. Lift the bottom of the panel forward and up. Remove. Make sure the machine is unplugged and switched off before reaching into the body work. Look for something "smelly"
Agitator - switch off and unplug - depending on the model unscrew the top cap on the agitator. Some models do not have an screw cap although it might look so. Reach with both hands into the machine and grab the agitator at it bottom flanges hands opposite each other. Pull up hard - it does not let go easily- make sure it doesn't have a top screw cap. To replace just push back until it clicks or replace and tighten the top cap.

Washer fills up, but nothing else


Usually the lid switch will let it fill, but do nothing else. Sometimes if you just drop the lid hard the switch will make and it will go through its cycle. If there is the smell of something burnt, it may well be the lid switch.Unplug the machine from outlet, then, lift the entire top of the machine, you will be able to see that switch. Pull the two wires off of the switch and with an Ohm meter, check your switch. It should register open when lid is open, closed when lid is closed. If you are not getting these readings, remove the switch--mark your wires! and replace. You should be able to purchase new switch where you purchased your machine

Things wear out! So is life!
Sounds like the belt wore and slipped and broke!
Is there any power to the washer?

How old is the washer?Sounds old.

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.


If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine

No Power to washing machine


Peace Friend,

With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,

First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem GREAT!!! WE WIN!
