Question about Frigidaire FLGB8200DS Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

Open Question

I couldn't find my Frigidaire model #flxe52rbs, so I just used this model number for my question. I just replaced my drive belt. Agitation works perfect, spin cycle does not. Motor pully turns but belt stays in place, eventually will burn through belt as the one I just replaced. I'm assuming I need to adjust belt tensioner, but don't know how. Please help. Thanks!!! Carl

SOURCE: Front loader will not spin

Might be a burned (a few coils) motor - feel any burned paint smell?
Alternatively, a broken belt - you'd hear rthe motor spinning, though - or some sensor/wiring malfunction.

It can be be your speed control unit. It also can be your door switch. Even though it locks there is still another switch inside that sometimes fails. That is your cheapest way to start and a lot of times that fixes it. If not replace the speed control unit.

What is the serial number for fra256st2 frigidaire window air conditioner


Unfortunately, there is no way to know the individual serial number of each Frigidaire AC unit, as they are all different. Even the manufacturer, couldn't tell you the exact serial number from the model number, alone.

Hope this helped answer you question and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The spin cycle is making a terrible noise - the drum seems very loose and even makes a starnge sound when moving it by hand. Can I repair this myself?


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER (such as Roper, Estate, Kenmore, Amana, and Frigidaire), you may have a damaged or broken motor coupling. Whirlpool manufactured top loading washers use a motor coupling between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission) in place of a drive belt. This configuration is known as "direct-drive". The coupling can break through normal wear and tear. Washing frequent loads of heavy items and reduce the life span of the coupler. Common symptoms include the following:

1. No spin or agitation.
2. Washer will fill and empty.
3. Drive motor still runs.
4. Strange rattling, grinding or clicking noise during agitation or spin cycles as the drum sits still.

If your washer is exhibiting these symptoms, then its probably a safe bet that the motor coupling is bad.

The following link explains how to replace one:

Washer wont agitate, it will work just fine except it wont agaitate


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. If you have a washer that has a weak agitation or no agitation at all, here are some possible solutions. You need to check your belts. Most washers have one or two belts. Check your lid switch. If a lid switch is bad, it can cause the washer to not work properly. Sometimes, they will not work at all. Make sure you check your drive motor. The drive motor controls the spinning, draining, and agitation. Most washers have the reverse motor, meaning the shaft rotates in both directions, clockwise and counterclockwise. It is possible to lose one direction and not the other. Some washers have a clutch that controls the agitation. If it is bad or worn, it may prevent the agitator to work. Most of these washers come from General Electric. You could have a bad motor coupler. They are located on the side of the motor drive inside the washer. It is also possible that you have a bad transmission. Check the agitator itself. You could have a bad spline or two. The splin accompanies the shaft and allows the movement of the agitator. If you rule out all the parts above, you may have an electrical issue or an issue with the control board. It is very important to test each part and make sure it is getting power. If a part is not working and not getting any power, the power loss may be the reason that it doesn't work. You can test the current in the wires with a voltage meter. Thank you very much for reading this tip and thank you for using Fixya

My Frigidaire Gallery Model #GLWS1339CS1 will not agitate. It fills, drains and spins okay and at the proper time. When the machine hits the agitation cycle, I can see the agitator engage, but it doesn't...


It doesn't agitate
If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:


Lid switch
If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or 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 washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Motor coupler
Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and 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. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.
Belts
Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)
Clutch
If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.
Drive motor
Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
Drive pulleys
The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.
Transmission
The transmission could have either of these problems:
Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.
The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.
If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.
Agitator
The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

An old model Frigidaire top-load washer - the old "turn the dial, and pull out to start" type. Drum won't agitate - what, if anything, can I do?


Remove the front panel and inspect the drive belt. It is probably worn out and or stretched.
The Frigidaire style you have does not take overloading very well.
Also check the lid switch for continuity. It must be good for agitation to occur.

Need to replace belts


This model washer doesn't have any drive belts. It uses a motor coupling in place of a drive belt. If you need to replace the coupler, the following link explains how to do this:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385250-replacing_motor_coupling_kenmore_top

You have to remove the entire washing machine case to access the interior. The back does not come off. Its not as intimidating as it sounds, though. The part number is included in the link I provided and can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the "Search By Part Number" feature. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
