    clothes are soaking wet not spinning

  • His Own Sep 18, 2008

    My husband took our machine outside to deal with a different problem. When he brought it in he bumped the control knob on the doorknob. Now it drains and spins about half the time. The rest of the time I have to spin the knob to the drain and spin spot, and hope for the best. Sometimes I have to do this several times. It is such a waste of time. Is there a fix for this?

    Half the time the unit will not spin out and the clothes are wet. I can move the knob around and experiment until I can find the spot where the spin will start. The unit is about 6 years old. My email is robinmarsh2000@yahoo.com.
    I would appreciate any advise you can provide.

    In my case the water does not pump out, and then it does not spin.

I have a Frigidaire front loader washing machine. If there are only a few lightweight pieces of clothes, the water will not spin out. Also some of my clothes have spots on them after washing. What do I do?


For the odor, you might try running a cycle with a strong bleach solution (no clothes!!!). Leave the door open when not in use to air out.

Certain Frigidaire models will not spin out if the door switch is damaged or is defective.

Unplug the machine first before doing this!!

You can access the switch by removing the top (remove two screws from the back of the panel). To remove the switch, remove the two screws from the front of the machine where the door latches. Locate the switch and observe how the wires plug into it. Replace with new switch.

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Washer won't final spin


After charging me $275 to change the water pump, the repairman said I needed a new computer board for another $160. I went & bought a new washer - this time a regular top loader mechanical washer with no computer. The repairman said computerized washers & front loaders in particular have lots of problems. He said top loader Whirlpools have the least problems.
