SOURCE: frigidaire washer model #fwt425rhso

the tub is mounted on shocks if you look in side the tub near where the tub seem is take the screws out of the vane and slide it foward and take it out look in the hole for foreign objects in between the inner and outer tub then follow this procedure to check the drain pump if you have a shop vac this is time to vacuum the water of the tub and all the way down the drain hole for the next stage usally i tell customers to remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vacuum the water out of the washer from the drain hose but because of the pillow this might not work in your case. Now remove the two screws on the front lower panel and pull the panel
in side you will see the drain pump if you did not have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps and clamp the hose line as close to the washer as possible.(but put down some towels as water always stays there) then pull the tub to pump hose by depressing the squeeze clamp(now while your at the auto parts id get a screw clamp to replace the spring clamp it makes putting the hose back on a lot easier)pull the hose off.Then pull the pump to drain hose off .Remove the two 5/16 in screws securing the pump to the washer base.Unplug the connector and remove the pump inspect the pump for foreign objects,broken or stripped impeller blades . if the impeller are stripped you will have to replace the pump then form the front of the washer take a piece of water hose with one end cut off and run it down the pump to drain end of the drain and reassemble the unit

SOURCE: whirlpool commercial washer stopped running mid

If the timer and lid switches are funtional and the machine is filling and shutting off correctly that only leaves the motor. Have the motor tested or replace it. Even though the timer is running it is possible that it is still at fault. If you have access to another timer try switching them to make sure it isn't the timer. This does sound like a faulty motor and I would start with that assumption.

SOURCE: my frigidaire washer FTF2140ES0 won't spin on the spin cycle

Hi there, the same thing is happening with our washer. Did you find a solution to the problem? We found a coin the the black tube, but it still doesn't do the final spin. I can hear the motor trying to do something, but it just won't do the final spin. If anyone has any idea or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, I have a load of slopping wet laundry to deal with. :(

SOURCE: Will start the wash cycle and DL come on and light

Hi,

"dl"indicates a door lock error. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
Check for the following when dl occurs:

  • Door Lock Mechanism broken.

  • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects

  • Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)

  • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure


Thank you !!

Frigidaire FFLE2022MW washer dryer combo beeps twice and stops during all washing cycles after it fills with water and lid is still locked. Does anyone know how to correct this? Thanks


Thank you for your inquiry, Criss Ard!

From my understanding you are having issues with your Frigidaire laundry center not starting a cycle. You stated that the washer fills with water then locks. It sounds like your timer is not advancing and that could be due to a faulty timer or wiring harness. You may want to perform a reset on your laundry center and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If this troubleshooting step does not help resolve your issue you may want to consult with a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Unlocking your washer so it actually works.


If the green cycle light is flashing on then off, this usually means the cycle is paused. The lid lock should unlock when in pause mode, if not you will need to press and hold the "Pause/Play" button to clear the cycle completely, if there is water in the unit, it will drain first, then unlock the lid and be on standby to start a new cycle.

you probably have a faulty lid switch/ locking mechanism. it is all in one. if the machine does not sense that the lid is closed properly, it will not start. you can try unplugging it to see if it will release the lid lock.

During wash cycle the tub doesn't lock.


Lid lock may be damaged. Unplug, remove the front by the bottom 2 screws. Look at lid lock to see if it has overheated or damaged. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Lock won't release on washer


Sometimes if you unplug it from the wall outlet for 5 minutes, then plug it back in and let it go through a fresh startup cycle then it refreshes and resets itself and may unlock switch.
