Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Have you managed to check that the drain pump is functioning correctly? Here is the final bit of my guidance notes on checking filters AND motors ;-0)
Disconnect power
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!
John C

Machine turns off when goes to the spin cycle


Hello halinad43 - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have either the pump or timer diagnose.

Open the hatch at the bottom left of the unit. If there is water still is machine, remove the drain hose and drain machine. Open the drain pump and check for foreign objects, make sure that the rotor spins freely and that there is nothing holding it. This will prevent the machine from working properly

I removed the bottom panel under the door and drained the the tub. There is a white filter housing that unscrews, but you need to have towels handy to catch the water that comes out. The machine appeared to work after that but it would'nt drain and it turns out that the humming noise was coming from the drain pump connected to the filter. I ordered a new drain pump assembly, which should be easy to replace since it is located at the front of the washing machine.

Sounds like a blockage in the outlet pipes or filter. It may be possible to drain it if you can get the outlet pipe (one from back of machine) outside, lay it flat on the ground as this will take it below the water level in the machine and may slowly drain. Once it drains out enough the machine should disengage the door lock to allow you to open it. Then check your filter and pipes for blockage. If no blockage is found then suspect faulty pump.

Frigidaire front washer has power but won't fill up, drain or go through correct cycles


You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. First set the washer to drain and spin. If you hear a hum or grinding noise and the water in the tub isn't draining or it's draining slowly you have something in the pump. If you take the rear panel off you'll reveal the drain pump at the right front corner or maybe middle on this model. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp (this can be tricky) attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. (you may want to have some old towels ready) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!

possible drain pump has a foreign object in it - access the impellor to see what you find or possible the pump has in fact failed. if you can hear a faint humming noise when should be draining, that indicates somkething jammed in the pump

not only check filter but when filter out check for foreign objects fouling pump impellor. (bra wires are the favourite) if pump impellor not visible, then put onto drain and listen for a low humming noise in vicinity of pump. this confirms that pump is powered but jammed. all you can do after that is to check continuity of pump and check there is power to pump when on drain - assumes you have a multimeter
