First thing this is the entire schematic for your machine http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Washer-dryer-combo-Parts/Model-FLXE52RBS8/1428/0152000?searchedModel=FLXE52RB58&blt=11 so the dryer still works correct? first thing would be the lid switch to check on the washer if the washer is not working the lid switch i think is located at part number 50 on this diagram unfortunatley this diagram is a bit fuzzy so you will have to double check on this http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fY2705246-00005.png if you have any questions message me back you should be able to hear the lid switch click as you open and close the lid you can also take a electrical wire and strip both ends and then go to the connector that the lid switch plugs into and connect the electircal wire now that you have stripped both ends it becomes a jumper wire and connect between points 1,3 on the switch this bypasses the switch itself and can be used in this manor as a temporary repair until you replace the switch itself note that if you do open the lid after you have done this the unit will still spin and agitate not like before when it would stop be extra careful if you jump this switch around small children and if you have any further questions message me back and please also message me back with your finds if the lid switch checks out to be in proper working order then message me back this information as well this is where you would start troubleshooting your unit and is usually one of the first probelm areas with the machineThanks Rick

Smelly clothes and washer


Washer smells foul...this is often a build up of soap, water, too many chemicals and this has left a residue, and the mildew moves right in and it stinks. This builds up is often on the inside of the outer tank.
Many times that this happens is when people use to much soap and then they only do laundry once a week.
One good solution to help your odor problem...it works well...in a top loader I recommend 2 cups of cascade and 2 cups of bleach, fill your machine with hot water and let it agitate. At the end of the agitation/wash cycle, let the machine sit and soak for about 10-15 minutes to work on your scum, then close the lid and let it complete. Next load run whites to be safe all bleach is out. This should help.
On some really bad odor problems, you may have to remove the inner basket to scrap off the build up from the inside of the outer tank. You may will need special tools to remove the inner basket.
Fabric softener is also nasty for building up inside and under the agitator.
It is recommended to use half to a quarter of the detergent that the package recommends.
Other things that may help, leave the washer lid open between laundry days. Never cover your washing machine with those plastic covers.

The frigidaire agitates but does not fill with water...and yes the water is on.


Hi, UNPLUG the washer and remove the panel behind the controls. Locate the water level switch (has 3 wires and a 5/16" hose). Remove the hose and then plug the washer in. Start the wash cycle and see if it fills. If it fills, you will need to unplug the other end of the hose that fits on a cup attached to the side of the tub.
Please let me know if this helps you so I can give you more instructions.

Thanks
Vic
