Tumble action front load washer

The washer goes all the way through the cycle and spins and everything at the end of the cycle the water doesn't drain and the clothes are still soaking wet. All the lights stay on after why is that? Anybody know?

Going to take a little surgery. Most likely a small sock or other article made its way down the drain pipe and clogged against the pump.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Series front load washer. I've had to do the following at least six times in the last year and a half. Each and every time, it was an errant sock from my three year old.

First, unload all the wet clothes into a garbage bag. Then **** out all the water using a wet/dry vac. You need to do this for safety reasons because you're going to be tipping the washing machine back and having water slosh around could cause it to fall on you.

Once you've sucked out as much as you can, pull the washing machine out from the wall by about three feet. Then with the help of someone, tip it backwards so that it rests against the wall. Have your friend hold it in place.

At the bottom on the front are two screws holding a panel on. Remove those to gain access to the guts.

If you look to your right side you'll find a pliable rubber boot mated to a hard plastic pump. Using a pair of channel locks or other suitable pliers, squeeze the wire clamp down and pull towards yourself. Be prepared for some water spillage when it comes off. I usually put some towels under the pump area and then use the wet/dry vac to **** the rest of the water out of the rubber grommet area.

Once this is off, you'll most likely find something clogging up the pump (the hard plastic part). Pull that out and essentially reverse your actions up to this point to put it back together. I will warn you it takes some patience to get the pliable rubber boot and clamp back in place on the pump inlet. Sometimes it takes me four or five attempts and I've done this a few times already. The key is to make sure you've made a good seal and the wire clamp is holding securely.

If you bought the under washer/dryer storage boxes, you might be able to get away without tipping it back, but I don't know for sure. The important thing is to try and get as much water out as possible.

Good luck.

Is it normal for the washing machine to start and stop the spinning while the machine is in each cycle? Should it take over an hour to run one wash cycle?


Yes...they use less water...so they start, tumble, then cycle again adding more water. I use the fastest setting on all my clothes which is 1/2 hour. It also does start and stop during spinning to tumble the clothes. It speeds up as it goes thru each stop till it spins real fast. All my clothes wash perfectly on fastest cycle.

My washer wont spin


Your symptoms that indicates a broken motor coupler. If your washer will drain and fill but has not agitation action or spinning action that would indicate a broken motor coupler. The motor coupler links the drive motor to the transmission.

Load noise in final spin cycle


turn the tub on the inside if it feels ruff as it turns and makes a noise then most likely you have a bad rear bearing, if it is smooth in turning and no noise then turn to drain or spin possibly something stuck in drain pump. the drain pump will start up first if you hear the noise then the drain pump is accessed from the front lower cover, if its the rear bearing probably not worth fixing about 400.00 in parts and alot of work.

Kenmore 2 Way Tumble Action Front Load Washer


no thats two different problems. The rubber piece (boot) forms a seal to prevent the water from leaking out, that should be replaced. Water might have leaked and ruined the pump. At the end of all cycles is there still water in the tub? If so your pump is either clogged or has gone bad, and thats why the washer wont go into extract.
