Sounds like your motor is blown. That's going to require a repairman.

SOURCE: Frigidaire front load washer wont high spin

It doesn't spin If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not 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.


It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. 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.


  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers 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. You may need to replace it.


  • A belt may be broken. 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.)


  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning 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.


  • The drive motor may be defective. 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.


  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

SOURCE: noise and vibration when Kitchen Aid front load washer spins

I just found out that the feel of my pedestal came loose causing the back of the washer to be higher than the front. I don't know if yours is the same, but mine has sounded like a helicopter taking off. I screwed the back feet back in.

I've not yet uprighted the washer to find out if it's resolved--I need the heavy-lifting members of my household for that--but I do hope this will return the washer to a far more normal sound.

Why wont my washer to perform the system clean cycle?


Hello Larry Occhipinti, thank you for your post!

If you are pushing the necessary buttons on your Frigidaire washer to perform a system clean and they are not working, it could be a possible issue within the control panel. I would recommend a reset on your appliance which can be done by disconnecting power from your appliance for roughly ten minutes. If that does not correct the issue, you can run a hot water wash cycle with a cup of bleach inside the tub to clean your appliance out as well. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Where is the pressure calibration switch on an affinity front load washer?


Hello garrett_lind, I appreciate your inquiry!

From my understanding you are searching for the pressure calibration switch on your Frigidaire washer due to the fact that it is not spinning on the last cycle. Some possibilities as to why your appliance is not spinning could be your timer or drain pump. I could not locate steps to access the pressure switch but for electrical components I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose and repair the appliance. -Matt

Hello - Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned, or you have another issue with the door lock assembly or the timer and control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

An extreme vibration in spin cycle. It makes the


Because front load washers are VERY HEAVY, they shake if you have a wooden floor. If your front loader sits on concrete and it still shakes, then you have to make sure all is balanced. If it still shakes, then inside the system there are shock absorbers that need to be checked.
