Frigidaire Washer Won't Agitate or Start.


There could be several reasons why your Frigidaire washer will not agitate, including problems with the power supply, the wash cycle or the way in which the appliance was loaded.
It is a good idea to try to resolve the problem with your washer yourself first since unnecessary repair call-outs can potentially be expensive if your appliance is outside its warranty period. Troubleshooting your Frigidaire washing machine will take about 15 minutes.
Confirm that the washer is still plugged in. Over time, vibration from spin cycles can work the power cable loose. Push the plug firmly into the outlet and try your load again.
Check your household fuses or breakers. Replace any blown fuses or tripped breakers to see if power is restored to your washing machine. Do not increase the fuse capacity during changing. Contact an electrician if you are unsure about fuses and breakers.
Confirm the water shutoff valves are open. If your Frigidaire washer cannot draw water from the pipes, it will not fill or agitate. The shutoff valves are usually located behind the washing machine where the water pipes meet the wall.
Allow the washing machine to cool down for 30 minutes. Frigidaire appliances automatically shut off if the motor starts to overheat. The cool-down period lasts for half an hour if the appliance has not been switched off manually.
Verify that the detergent draw is tightly closed. If the dispenser is left open, the washer will not start or agitate its load. Push the draw so it sits flush with the front of the washing machine.
Ensure that the washing machine door is closed. As with the detergent door, the appliance will not start if the door is left slightly open, to prevent water from spilling onto the floor. Push the door closed until it clicks, and try your load again.
Confirm that your Frigidaire dryer is set to a spin cycle. If your dryer is set to a soak cycle or is currently in the soak portion of a longer cycle, it will not spin or agitate the wash. Make sure the appliance is set to a spin load and try again.
Contact Frigidaire if problems continue. You may be entitled to free service if your washing machine is within its warranty period. See Resources for Frigidaire's contact information.

If the bearing is bad it will likely do one of three things, it can sound like a jet is taking off when your washer is spinning, the rear bearing seal can start leaking, or if it is really bad there will be slop between the basket and tub. Open the door and spin the basket, does it sound like the bearing has gravel in it? Lift on the basket if it has slop between the basket and tub this will for sure cause the banging you are talking about. To verify the leak you will have to pull the rear cover off of the machine and look for grease or water trails running down the rear of the tub. Often times the grease or water will get on the pulley or belt and fling it around the rear of the washer. Hope this helps.

It's the timer control, not the motor or filter. Try a different setting. You should also be able to find more information on the manufacturers website, along with a manual and possibly a diagram. Also You Tube is a good place to find out more on how to repair it.
