Pulled out detergent compartment and magnet fell out. where does it go machine wont run.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The dispenser drawer on many Electrolux/Frigidaire built machines do require a magnet on the right hand side of it to activate the reed switch inside the console located there. It should fit in the bottom of the drawer, if you flip it upside down you should see it's intended location.


Let me know how you make out and I'll help further in any manner I can. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Our magnet fell out, where does it go


If you are talking about a small, rectangular magnet, about a 1/16" think or so, it goes in the detergent dispenser drawer. Looking at the front of the drawer, right side, a little behind the front. This magnet triggers a ( or should if its not falied) a magnetic reed switch which allows the washer to operate only if the drawer is closed.

If you take the drawer out, and remove the front, you will see where it goes.

Magnet fell out of the soap dispenser and now the washer will not fill with water


The magnet needs to be located on the right side of the dispenser housing it is there so the machine knows the drawer is closed. The link below will show the location of the magnet which is part number 51 near the bottom of the page.

Magnet fell out of dispensing drawer and I don't seem to be able to find where to replace it. Washer will not start without it. Kenmore model 417 44152400


I dont see why there would be a magnet in the dispenser draw in the first place,,,, is it possible it somehow got in there by accident and when it fell out you thought it belonged in there ?

Front end washer lights come on but doesn't fill.


it fell out of the dispenser, hold the dispenser facing away from you on the left side there is a small slot, place the magnet in vertically so the long side of the magnet is on the right when looking from the front with the drawer closed good luck

Washer - soap dispenser door - Magnet fell out... where does it go


I had the same problem. If you turn the dispenser so that the front faces away from you, look on the left side in the front. half way up there is a space with what looks like a plastic clip that might hold the dispenser to the front bezel. This actually holds the magnet, which can be installed without taking the dispenser apart. Be sure to install (pop in) the magnet vertically so that the long part of the magnet sits next to the right side of the dispenser opening (when viewed from the front) when the drawer is closed.

Door magnet


Not familiar with your model. If I've got the right picture in my head either by the catch on the door or the centre top there might be a pocket for it to slide into...
