    Are you kidding me??? This appears to be a canned response .

    For the money it cost i was hoping for a direction on what to look for .

  • 3monkeys51 May 20, 2008

    My apologies i did not see the solution # 2 and 3 . The breaker did not trip and the outlet is getting power . Do these machines have fuses ?? When it comes to electric my knowledge is limited .



    Thanks.

The circuit breaker wasn't tripped, correct? The board is the only thing that would cause everything to stop working otherwise. First check power in the outlet and then check for power in the rest of the machine and let me know if anything else is still working so that we can narrow down this problem. Please post here with an update.

good luck

    The lid switch may be defective and if it is, then it may cause the machine to not operate at all. Only a few washing machines even have a fuse which would be near the lid switch and inside the control panel. Please first make sure there is power in the outlet by plugging something else in before trying to fix the machine.If you press the button to start it and it doesn't run, then the control board may also need to be replaced if the switch is ok.



    If you press the buttons and it sounds like it is trying to go, then there is a problem with a different part of the machine but most likely the board is fried or the switch broke.

Its main logic circuit needs to be dried in sun and fix it again. Else check the motor or replace the main printed board assembly with new one.

Why is my frigidaire washer not spinning?


  1. Stopped Mid-cycle
    • If your Frigidaire washing machine started spinning, but then stopped, verify that the power cord is still connected to the outlet. See if the outlet blew by plugging in a different appliance into the outlet. See if you blew a fuse. A blown fuse usually is either black or has broken wires. Replace the fuse. If you have a circuit breaker instead of a fuse box, reset the circuit breaker if it's been tripped. Check the lid switch, which is located inside the main housing of the washing machine, near the door frame. If the switch is burned out, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer.
    Pump
    • The pump's sole responsibility is to remove water during the spin cycle. If the pump isn't working properly, see if it's clogged with debris or clothing. Use needle-nose pliers to remove these items. Check the pump pulley, which is connected to the pump. This component must move freely for the pump to work. If it won't turn, purchase a new pump pulley since you can't usually fix this component.
    Lid
    • Check the door latch assembly if the door isn't closing correctly. If any of these components are broken, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer. If you do not, the washer won't start spinning since it believes the door isn't closed. Your Frigidaire washing machine won't start the spin cycle until the lid or door is closed. Always close the lid, and remove any items preventing the lid from fully closing. Always close the dispenser drawer.
    Additional Concerns
    • Never over- or under-load your washing machine. Your Frigidaire washer may not enter the spin cycle if the load is too large, since this can damage the washing machine. Remove a few pieces of clothing. If the load is too small, add a few similar items to the washing machine. Check the internal belt, drive motor and motor coupling. If any of these components are broken or very worn, they may not work properly, preventing the washer from entering the spin cycle. Order replacement parts from a parts dealer. Check the tub and basket bearings, and get new ones if the current ones have broken components or are defective.

Washer filled with water then stopped working, still full of water. Drier works just fine. Happened durring an electrical short in my house, but the fuse that was blown was not linked to the same part of...


Hi,
You state you had a short in the home. Since the washer is on 110V system, you can try a different outlet and see if the machine works. Although you state that it isn't on the same part of the panel as the washer/dryer, and the dryer works, the dryer is on a different breaker, and it may indeed have had some effect on the panel that hooks to the washer. Try my first option, and let me know how you make out. I believe you'll find that to be the trouble

Washer seems to cycle fine but the water will over fill


Hello, fill the washing machine with water and when the water is about 1/2 full of water,unplug the washers power cord from the wall outlet.if the water keeps flowing into the washing machine with the power cord pulled the "fill valve"(where the hot and cold hoses are attached to the washer) has mechanically stuck open and will have to be replaced. if the water shuts off when you remove it's power cord from the wall outlet,try plugging the washer in and out a couple more times and if the water stops each time the fill valve indicates as being good.

Thanks

It doesn't work at all If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these: No power Lid switch No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped? Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

Hotpoint , no power, full of water


Turn off the water supply to the machine

Take the drain hose off the back of the machine and drop it into a bucket , you will need to do this several times.(Take off any clips that stop it from being laid flat on the floor)

Once all of the water is out of the machine try powering it up again, if it lights up do a spin to get the clothes dry , leaving the outlet hose in the bucket.

If that works then once the machine is dry try turning on the water supply with the machine turned off , if water runs into the machine then you have a faulty fill valve.

If that is ok then check the pressure switch and Air Bell which sits on the back of the main drum you could have a soap ball in the Air Bell which will false out the machine and cause overfilling

If there is no power check the mains supply to the wall outlet then the plug top wiring and any fuse fitted inside the plug top

After that it is down to a man with a test meter

Kenmore washer machine cylce stopped in mid cycle


If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

  • No power
  • Lid switch

No power
Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?


Lid switch
If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
 check these, if still the problem persists then let me know for further help.

Washer won't agitate, drain or spin


quite possible that the fuse has gone bad again, if that s the case i would recommend replacing the fuse, and the lid switch.
