Question about Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
Washer does not agiatate or spin . motor spins but does not causing belt to burn.could it be drive gear locked up?
It's not worth fixing if it's 10 years old or more, better off
replacing it with a newer machine which will be much more efficient!
The belt is gone and or snapped off or the transmission is shot! And it's not worth replacing an old transmission.
If it's 10 years old or more buy a new one
and save your money ,fixing it is a waste!
Not worth the money to fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Deanna - This particular issue could be caused by a variety of reasons. I would suggest trying the following steps:
1) Verify a circuit breaker isn't tripped
2) Advance the timer control dial slowly 360 degrees-
If the washer starts spinning, then that means the motor and drive belt are fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.
If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken, replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.
3) Visually inspect the lid safety switch- Is it loose or cracked? If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.
4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.
