Means your pump is blocked. Apperently there is no main filter according to the book .
It means you will have to open the machine and disconnect the hose from the pump and clean the pump. ( i presume the pump works?)
make sure you try to drain as much of the water by putting the drainhose low into a bucket or basin.
let me know what happened

Even though the water well is full to the right level the machine does not detect this and flashes 'Add Water' then stops. Was working fine the day before. I suspect the water level detector switch is...


Tube for pressure switch sits outside drum and needs air pressure to activate the switch.you may find the water has entered the tube thus reducing the effective air pressure required to activate water level indicator.simply take top off washer and locate the tube , drain the machine via the drain tube near the penny trap before pulling off the rubber hose which comes from bottom of drum and drain out any water from tube, reconnect tube and the air that is now in the tube will compress as the water level rises to the point where it activates the switch.if still not fixed maybe need to replace pressure switch which is obtainable off eBay from various online sellers.

Washer does not completely drain to allow for spin


The most common cause for standing water in a washer is a clogged drain pump. Another possibility is a kink or clogged drain tube. Below is a youtube video with instructions on removing a drain pump on most front load washers including your Frigidaire model. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya!

I have a Roper washing machine and it will not drain the water?


Most common causes for a machine that won't drain are:

  1. Clogged drain tube
  2. Clogged drain hose
  3. Clogged drain pump
To diagnose, remove the drain hose from the drain tube and look for water in the tube. A clog will force water back into the machine. If this is clear, some debris could have worked it's way into the drain hose itself. Check this by removing the hose and inspect for a blockage. If both are fine, the problem is most likely in the drain pump. Many times, a piece of paper left in a pocket will work it's way into the drain pump and get lodged.

There is a problem with the main piston/sealpack assembly and it needs to be replaced. You can get this kit at Culligan and replace it yourself, if you are handy, it takes about 20 minutes. Replace the refill piston at the same time. Or have Culligan do it.

The washer leaves water remaining in drum after the entire wash cycle, it becomes stale and makes my clothes that I was smell. My father's front loader, GE, does not leave any water in the drum


Hello

Check the drain tube,it needs to be 30 inches above the floor.

Also if the drain tube from the washer is too far into the drain the washer will not drain completly.The drain tube should be 1 inch into the wall drain.

Also check for kinks or obstructions in the washer drain tube.

My Whirlpool dishwasher will wash fine, but when it drains, it's a slow trickle. I've snaked the line from the sink to the washer, but I can't find a clog. If I try to blow into the drain pipe all I...


Ok, don't fret too bad, help maybe just reading.

Disconnect the drain hose from the sink/garbage disposal, get a big bucket, stick hose in bucket, making sure that end of drain hose does not get lower then the bottom of dishwasher. Turn dishwasher on (to drain mode if possible or just wait for drain mode) and see if water drains like it is supposed to, if not (and drain hose is not blocked with grease) then either drain solenoid is bad, not opening drain trap all the way or your drain pump is defective.

Did you just replace the garbage disposal, common mistake when replacing disposals is failure to remove dishwasher drain plug knockout.

If further assistance is needed, give us the model number of the dishwasher so I know what model I'm working with.

My washer drains but then continues to fill with water.


There is a small piece that is inside where the water runs into the machine it is called a water inlet valve. I had the same problem a few months ago. I know the part is not that expensive but the labor was. When the repair man left I looked at the part and thought I should have tried to fix it myself. It was only a couple of screws.
Hope this helps.
