    Thank you for the reply. The lid switch is tight and has a very distinct click. I have heard of a timer issue makes a washer act like this. In the case I've heard of, the washer needs to see a pause before activating the spin cycle, and by opening the lid, you force a pause on the washer. I belive that's what I'm looking at here, it is very consistent and simply opening and closing the lid remedies it. If it was a flaky lid switch, it would work some of the time, and sometimes not. Just want to make sure I'm not barking up the wrong tree, and replace a timer for nothing.

    Every heard of the above senario?

    Thank you much for your efforts!

    Sounds like you may be having a lid switch problem. Have you tightened the screws on both the hinges on the lid and the screws on the lid switch on the right hand side in the top as you open the lid?

The washer drains the water durring the neutral drain. (water drains out but the basket does not spin). Then the timer will hit a "pause" (basically removes the power momentraily so the gear case can change gears). So if you are not getting the pause durring the cycle, lifting the lid does the exact same thing. I would agree with you from your last comments that you do have a timer issue. They can be ordered on line from the manufacture or more readily a local appliance parts store.

Frigidaire FFLE2022MW washer dryer combo beeps twice and stops during all washing cycles after it fills with water and lid is still locked. Does anyone know how to correct this? Thanks


Thank you for your inquiry, Criss Ard!

From my understanding you are having issues with your Frigidaire laundry center not starting a cycle. You stated that the washer fills with water then locks. It sounds like your timer is not advancing and that could be due to a faulty timer or wiring harness. You may want to perform a reset on your laundry center and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If this troubleshooting step does not help resolve your issue you may want to consult with a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

My model GLET1041AS2 Frigidaire Laundry Center fills/agitates, but does not pump or spin. The timer would make a slight buzzing/timer sound when it hits the spin cycle, but nothing else.


The circuit board has a Cycle generator and sequencer that accepts commands when you manually do a setting. When the sequence enters the spin phase a block occurs and discontinues further action. It is not the timer, but the command center on the circuit board. Because the board has many functions, it is like a set of Christmas Tree lights in series, and when one bulb fails, so goes the set. You will no doubt need a new command board for that model.

Washer won't drain or enter spin cycle


SHOULD BE THE LID SWITCH... THERE IS TWO SWITCHS INSIDE, ONE THAT STOP THE MACHINE, AND ONE TO LOCK THE DOOR. YOU SHOULD SEE THERE IS TWO PAIRS OF WIRES THAT CONECT WITH THE LID SWITCH, ONE PAIR IN THE FRONT, AND ANOTHER PAIR IN THE RIGHT SIDE, THAT RIGHT SIDE IS THE PROBLEM, INSIDE THE LID SWITCH MUST BE BROKEN. TRY TO MOVE THE PLATED LOCKING PIN IN THE DIRECTION THAT LOCKS THE DOOR, AND IT MIGHT DRAIN AND SPIN. IF THAT THE PROBLEM, YOU SHOULD GET A NEW SWITCH (MODEL 134101800), AND YOURE DONE.
GOOD LUCK

Whirlpool Thin Twin randomly skips agitation during the cycle.


Did you ever figure this out? Mine agitates but instead doesn't start spinning and draining unless I open the lid. It then "clicks" and starts but it is strange that I have to do this to get it to spin.

Frigidaire washer won't drain or spin


Hello - 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. Supposing that it does not, I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. The unit could possibly have a faulty pump, timer, or door lid (if it is a laundry center).

Hello I have a Maytag Washer Model A512 The machine goes through a regular cycle OK - However, it DOES drains the water out during the rinse cycle, but does NOT drain the water out during the spin...


The timer will always advance to the next program if the machine does not fully drain. There is ALWAYS a spin when draining the water out, there is only one pump and one motor. The waterlogged laundry maybe telling the timer that there is still water in the tub. Put the machine on "Spin" and cheat the lid switch into thinking that the lid is closed. Use a clothes peg or wide ended screwdriver and see if there really is a spin....

Water comes back in and stands after cycle is run


I'm not sure what washer you have but a lot of washers have an additional spin cycle. If you left the lid open, then it would only fill with water then sit until the lid is closed. Try making sure the lid is closed next time you empty it and see if the water is in there the next morning. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Humming noise during spin cycle


Strangely enough, the electronics in the motor drive circuits are quite hardy. Suggest if motor does agitate but not spin, check the motor brushes and see what length and condition they are in.Have had to replace brushes on many occasion.If you have a motor that has a capacitor then check the cap. It could be defective.
