I have a Maytag that had that problem. Mine has a plastic tube inside of the machine that connects to a sensor. As the water level rises, some of it goes into this tube creating air pressure on a sensor that signals the machine that the water is at the selected level. The bottom of the tube had come loose and just needed to be put back onto the fitting. I accessed this tube by lifting the top of the machine, and it is in the back. Very easy to get at. I hope this works for you.

There is a water connector that the water lines from the house connect to the washer. you will need to take the panel off. you should see a blue plastic box where the hoses connect. you will need to replace this piece. it should have wires on it and that tells the washer when to open the valve for water to come through and when to stop.

My washer want stop filling up and when I should the machine off the water runs in the floor


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FWS833A, will not stop filling. I see that you shut the machine off and the water runs onto the floor. I suggest shutting the water off at the inlet. From there I would contact your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the water will not stop filling your washer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Cold water constantly runs even when the knob is pushed in to turn washer off.


If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing. The cold side can fail independently of the hot side.

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

The transmission might have locked up causing the motor to overheat.

Frigidaire washer won't agitate


Probably a stripped gear in the transmission.
