Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

As you do not say the make and model I'm assuming, at least until you tell me otherwise (!), that it is a front loader. I normally deal only with front loaders for motors and belts 'cos their easier ;-0)

This sounds very much like the motor is failing. Motors- and belts, which is sensible to change at the same time- are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts, normally 2, should be loosened and the belt removed then remove the bolts completely
With the motor it is false economy to just have the brushes changed. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished. Refurbishing includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit firmly on the commutator but straddle it- the centre is often more worn than the outer part.
Unfortunately motors are not cheap- the motor for our 18+ year-old Bosch cost GBP250 but it will probably outlive us. The choice is entirely yours, I'm afraid!
Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C

It only wash & don't spin? Then it stops and leak water by the door....


LG Washer & Dryer 7 (WD12331AD)
Its is a direct drive front loader with 7kg capacity for washing and 3.5kg capacity for drying.

when new
thats 7 kg with wet clothes and water
and only 3.5 kg wet clothes to dry

the older it gets the less weight it can wash and dry

worn motor or drum overload if it doesnt want to spin at all

leak at the door . replace the door seal ..is a most common fix

extra info
It has 9 preset settings, 400 - 1200 RPM, 5 temperature settings, digital display and delayed start timer.

Frigidaire Gallery washer won't produce final high spin


Hey friend, thank you for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer, FWT449GFS2 is not entering the final high spin cycle. It is possible that you could have a defective motor or timer. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend you having a professional come out to the home for the repair of your washer. -Matt

Sounds like the clutch may be slipping. Does it go into a high speed spin?

check your water pump, there might be something stuck in it to prevent from draining.

Will not spin


You have either a bad lid switch, a bad drive coupling or a bad timer. If you can move the timer dial to spin manually and turn it on and it spins the lid switch is good and the timer is bad. If you manually move it to spin and the motor runs with no spin, the drive coupling is bad. If you manually move it to spin and nothing happens, the lid switch is bad.
