My washer want stop filling up and when I should the machine off the water runs in the floor


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FWS833A, will not stop filling. I see that you shut the machine off and the water runs onto the floor. I suggest shutting the water off at the inlet. From there I would contact your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the water will not stop filling your washer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Basic Washer Installation Advice


Here are some installation tips for washing machines. This is meant to provide BASIC guidance and not meant to deviate from any installation criteria that may come with your washer. Follow your manufacturer’s recommendations if they differ from those outlined here:

- Water pressure requirements should be a minimum of 10-25 psi to prevent fill valve leaks and proper fill rates. A minimum pressure is required to keep the fill valves closed when not in the process of filling. If the water pressure is too low, you may experience symptoms of water filling in the wash tub when not in use and/or longer fill times.

- The drain line should be capable of handing 17 gallons of water per minute. If not, you could experience overflows from the standpipe during the drain cycle.

- The standpipe should be 2 inches in diameter, be a minimum of 34” from the floor to prevent siphoning, and should not exceed 72 inches in height. DO NOT seal the top of the standpipe, or place the drain hose too far down into the pipe. This can also cause siphoning. 4 to 6 inches is sufficient when placing the drain line into the standpipe.

- The operating temperature for the washer should be above 60 degrees F. It is not safe to place a washer in an environment where it is allowed to freeze. Residual water in the drain lines, fill hoses and pumps could freeze and damage the washer. This is something to consider when placing a washer in a location outside the home like a garage.

- The drain hose length must not exceed 10 feet in length. Excessive drain hose length can cause drain problems and back wash.

- When leveling, make sure the washer is level SIDE-TO-SIDE and FRONT-TO-BACK, and that you place the washer on a FIRM foundation. Weak flooring is the number cause of washer vibration and out-of-balance problems. If the flooring flexes when the washer is in the spin cycle, the washer will vibrate, no matter if it is level or not (this is particularly a problem with front loaders). If you do not have an alternative, the flooring can be firmed up by placing a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood (at least ¾ inch thickness) under the washer to help distribute the weight more evenly.

I hope these tips are informative and help prevent some of the more common washer problems that can easily be remedied by double checking your installation.

Water coming out from under washer


What is the complete model number of your unit?

Nov 23, 2012 | Washing Machines

1 Answer

Water large amounts on floor of shut off machine


To sufficiently inspect your washer to determine where to leak may be coming from, please review the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

If there is a huge gush of water coming from the washer as soon as you begin the fill cycle, this is commonly caused by a small air hose on the side of the washer drum that connects to the pressure switch. If this air hose comes loose,the water will pour from the wash tub as it begins to fill. This is an easy fix, if that is the only problem.

Another cause, can be a water inlet valve that is leaking by, or a pressure switch that does not keep the water supply shut off when not in use. This will cause the tub to fill up and spill over. The following link explains how to check for this as well:

Read through the information provided and let me know if you are having problems determining the cause of your problem. Please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so that I may be able to accurately determine how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

Continues to fill, not holding water


The drain hose might be too low. Make sure the drain hose is at least three feet above the floor.

If the above adjustment doesn't produce positive results, replace the control.

Will not fill up with water


Check the exit hose behind your machine must be lying at floor level, this should not be. It must go over a certain height, approx 3 feet before it comes down to your drain. If you look carefully behind your machine you may find a water mark, the tube should go to this level & then down to your drain. Check this out.
