Question about Frigidaire FWS833A Top Load Washer
Joe, remove panel to get access to outside of outer tub. You will see a "bell" with a soft 3/8 clear line coming from it. That is your water pressure hose and it goes to a switch in the control panel. Remove one side from the bell housing, outer tub, and check for gookus. Clean out all obstructions. If there isn't any obstruction in the line, you need a new pressure switch up in control panel. There is a small chance that there is something on the inside of the outer tub which is obstucting air bell but I don't see this very often. Hope this helps,

Hello dwl770 - If your washer won't stop filling up with water and overflows the tub, check for one of these problems:
1) Turn off the electricity to the washer. If the water *stopped* filling when power was disconnected, the problem would usually be in the control system of the machine. If the water still continues, then the plunger in the water valve is either stuck open or slow to close. Try turning the water faucets off and on a few times. This small joltmight unstick the water valve. If not, it will need replacing.
2) There could be a problem with the water level switch. Call in a professional.
3) There is a pressure switch hose that is attached to an air dome. This switch tells the washer that there is water in the tub and allows the agitator to start.
- Remove the control panel and you will notice a small hose. See if it popped off of the air dome. If it did, secure it with a zip tie.
If water flow continues, but drains out immediately, then raise the drain hose above the highest water level line of the tub. Do not seal the drain hose to the discharge pipe. This could cause a siphoning action.
