Jane, check to make sure that the drain hose has a air gap in the drain. Sometimes you will get a siphoning effect if you don't have the gap or it is pushed down to far in the drain. If this is not your problem, it's probably a timer issue...Catriver..post back

You need to replace the Motor controller speed asm part number 134149220 they are about 165.00. very easy part to replace you have to remove the back panel and the control board is on the bottom left side two scews and two plugs.

problem started when washer started itself up twice in the middle of the night....after that the washer seems to have problems figuring out what it wants to do...when running a wash it will start, run for 2 minutes then start scanning numbers...it does not land on a code...it will spin, stop, start...sears has replaced the mother board 3 times....and we will be phoning them again as it has not fixed the problem..one other time it did not spin properly and clothes were wet...we have a dedicated surge protector on it...we have had our electrical checked and no problems there...sears confirmed that as well..the techs have given up on it and don't know what to do with anymore...it is still under warranty and now costing sears more to service it then replace it....time for them to do the right thing and "take it back"...very disappointed in this washer...wish me luck when i call them again...they must be sick of hearing from me....lol

My front load washer frigidare door is rusty acsess door is rusted off its only 6 years old


Thank you for your post, debra!

I understand that the front of your Frigidaire washer is rusted. Typically rust is not covered under the warranty and in most cases, the door will more than likely need replacing. Could you please provide me with your model number? You can normally locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the upper front interior of the door frame on a front load washer. If you own a top load washer you would normally find the serial tag on the inside of the lid, on the right side. Once I have that information I can provide additional information for your washer. -Matt

It wont start washing or spin


MIne had the same code. It is the error code for the motor and control board. The book that tells you how to read the code is under the washer behind the front panel. My washer was 4 1/2 years old and was shot. To repair this was $479 for parts and labor, I replaced with a new Amana front load washer for $496.00. Glad I had AHS home warranty only cost me $60.00 for the service call and they sent me a check for a replacement. I probably would not buy another Frigidaire, because a washer should last more than 4 years. Good Luck.

Motor runs, but no spin.


You don't list model number so this will be a bit generic for Hotpoint top loader. If the motor spins but the belt is not moving: With power off, manually turn the large pulley the belt goes around, just a revolution is enough. Spin is CCW, but you may have to try CW (agitation). Now set turn the washer on spin again. This may unlock your transmission, but unfortunately is usually only a temporary solution. If the machine was manufactured prior to 1-1-06 and still under five years old, the transmission may still be covered under warranty. Check the back pages of your owner's manual. (labor would not be covered) If too old / not covered, I'd invest in a new front loading washer. The LG's are #1 rated in Consumer Reports and are direct drive (with a 7 year warranty on the motor) so there is no transmission, clutch, belt, or pulleys. You don't have to get the top of the line model, all LG's are direct drive and very good. Other front load machines, although not DD, will also use much less water than your hotpoint and spin out twice as fast or more, reducing dry time and dry cost. I know this wasn't what you really wanted to hear (bad news), so don't bother rating this "solution". (don't want my rating to go down just because I told someone bad news about there machine.)

Washer warranty


Red Flag !! 1 year now instead of 5 year Warranty .
I'd stay far clear from purchasing any model washer from Frigidaire!
Any one think differently?

Ok final Question


If this is a frigidaire, when the washer has a load in it, as the agitator agitates the tub should move about 1/8 of a turn. Meaning that for 8 agitations the tub should make 1 revolution. We call this indexing in the appliance repair world. If the tub is making 1 revolution in 4 agatations or 1 revolution in 1 agitation, the transmission is bad. This should have a 5 year warranty if purchased before 2006. You will also need a tub seal. Hope this helps

Agitator will not move


Jac, my suggestion is this. The "reverse" gear in the transmission has locked up. The burning smell is coming from the belt. The motor is trying to spin the belt to turn the tranny but it won't turn  'cause it's locked up this causes the belt to burn.

If it's less than 5 years old, the tranny is under warranty. Contact Frigidaire and give them the full model and serial number and schedule a repair. (ask them to bring a belt with them when they come. you'll need one.)
