Frigidaire gallery series front load washer
turn down the water pressure on the water line to the washer if the water pressure is to high it will splash out of the filler. there should be a vale on the main water line to the washer.
My dryer starts but drum doesn't spin. what is this?
Unplug it and locate the access panel or remove the top lid. Look inside and see if the drive belt is busted.
If it is get the machine details off the sticker on the back and call an appliance spares shop or go online. Any good DIY person can change it.
Drum drive motor does not spin
No spin, try these:
Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.
Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.
Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)
Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.
On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.
Door latch not working therefore cannot use.
Verlin, this is JK. I understand that you are having concerns with the door latch. Before considering contacting a service provider, I would recommend resetting the appliance by turning off the power to the washer for about five minutes. After the five minutes return power to the appliance, this should allow the washer to return to working condition. You may also want to check to ensure the door is aligned. If all of these suggestions pan out and the problem still persists, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any error codes, odors, or other strange functions prior to this issue? If you are still having these issues and can think of anything in particular, please feel free to reconnect. Hope this helps!
Wash cycle does not complete itself,spin leaves
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
The water is drained at the end of each cycle by the drain motor.
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

How do I repair a washing machine?
Common solutions for: Frigidaire Washer won't spin or agitate. Inspect the drive belt to determine if it is broken or if it is loose on the pulleys. If the drive belt is broken or loose, replace it. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not spin.
assuming this has long since been dealt with, but if its not in the rubber gasket at the front of the machine, take off the bottom panel at the front, there is a small pump there that drains the unit. It may be trapped in there. You can use pliers or vice grips to remove the couplers holding the hoses on and a screwdriver to remove it.
I can't get the "loc" display to reset from my Frigidaire gallery dishwasher
Try pressing and holding the Delay Start button for ~3 seconds. The 'loc' indicator should go out. If you hold the button for too long, then the lock could toggle back on. If the problem persists, you may have an issue with the keypad on the dishwasher.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of the dishwasher if the control panel lock does not disengage.
