Question about Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I bought in Houston (Texas) in 1992 the described below FRIGIDAIRE washing machine FRIGIDAIRE WD 5891 951111192 ( with 16 programmes ) capacité 5Kg spin motor 800watts PROGRAMATEUR KEMO KEUR 51600 5900 TYPE 900 Z8FILLINGMOTORE10-16 TYPE 914 7917 This machine has been and it is still working very well, except that since few days, at the end of washing cycles, it spins very slowly ( 60 /minute) . As a result, not much water is extracted from the clothes which are very wet at the end of the spin cycle. Note that I made several tests with very small load (2 shirts only ) to avoid having the machine out of balance. Also note that there is no problem from the water pump which is working correctly since no water is left in the machine at the end of cycles. Could you advise? G. SAUNIER

Hello. It is unusual to have a 1992 washing machine still in service. Since the spin cycle is the problem, begin by testing the motor coupler. To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt, a worn clutch or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Lastly, water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Hi there, my washing machine was doing the same as the one you have mentioned.
I bought a replacement timer from the website highlighted below. It has done the trick and every programme works properly now.
A competent DIY person can change one of these easily and will take about 30 minutes to do.
The new part looks slightly different but it carries the same part number.

The price £24.99 + £4.98 delivery.,46246
