Frigidaire Washer won't drain

Hi, My daughter has a top loading washer, fairly new, and it suddenly won't drain all the water in the spin cycle. She said that previous to this happening it kept becoming unbalanced and she would repeatedly rearrange the load. Despite her efforts she could never get it so the drum even looked like it was sitting properly when at rest. Now it won't spin enough to get all the water out, though it does continue through the cycles to the end. She has small children and it sounds to me like there could be a sock or something stuck up under the agitator column. Do you agree and is this a repair she can handle herself? She's determined to try.

Sounds like a bolt on the agitator shaft is broken which is causing the imbalance. Open lid, lift off fabric softener dispenser, pull out plastic cap, take out bolt, lift agitator out(might have to wiggle it a bit). Replace BOTH horizontal bolts holding inner tub to shaft. Tighten all the way. Replace all parts.
If it doesnt spin all the water out, that could be due to a bad bearing. Hold inner tud at the rim and turn clockwise and then anti-clockwise. If it turns bothways, you have a worn bearing. This job isnt for the do-it-yourselfer.
What is happening is the motor is spinning the bearing but it's not engaged to the drum.

Frigidaire Washer/Dryer Combo FEX831CS0 won't work


Hello Laura Clark - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. If it does not, the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with the pump, door lock assembly or timer. Since it is such a complex unit, I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately

SPIN CYCLE WON'T DRAIN WATER FROM TUB IT RUNS ONTO MY FLOOR


Sounds like you have a bad water pump. Remove the hose going into the water pump and coming out of the pump and the pump should pull directly off the shaft check to make sure it spins freely.

Frigidaire front load washer won't drain or spin


This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

Spin cycle issue


if this is a frigidaire as in the healine , then see if the tub turns over at all. if not then it may be the inverter board located on the bottom right rear. If there is water left in the tub now that water should drain before it will fill again. check drain pump for obstruction/operation.
for the inverter, there is a techsheet in the bottom attached to the wall, It gives info for checking it. Have a multimeter handy.
