Check for electrical continuity on the pump if all is ok, strip for blockages take note of any wires and where parts come from etc work with safety unplug from power supply before removing panels

the buzzing noise is the pump trying to work, but it cannot due to a blockage. unplug the washer and you can lean the washer backwards and remove the pump to unblock. the fill error is probably unrelated, and is an inlet valve issue.

I have a Frigidare FWX833AS1 which had been working quite well until a screw left in a pants pocket lodged in the basket/drum. after that it hasnt drained completely but running the spin cycle a second...

Take off the back of the machine. Locate the water pump, it will have the drain hose attached to it. Remove the water pump and take it apart. You should find your screw and maybe some other things. If the water pump is not damaged reinstall and everything should be working.

Does the washer go through the spin cycle? Or, does it stop just before the spin cycle and fail to continue, leaving you with a full tub of water? If this is the case, this problem is often caused by a lid switch malfunction. If you determine you have a lid switch problem, parts are available at Just type in your model number and locate item number 11 (part #3949238) under the "Top and Cabinet Heading" If you need instructions on how to replace it, let me know. I'm assuming you don't have a lid switch problem at this point because you said the washer was spinning just fone. However, I thought I would mention it because it can exhibit similar symptoms. So, just in case...

Since you mentioned you found an part of a bra lodged in the pump, it may have damaged it to where it no longer works. I also understand the washer goes through all its cycles and spins properly, right? If so...looks like a possible drain pump problem. The pumps on these model washers are sealed units and do not come apart to service. I would consider purchasing and replacing the pump. You can find a replacement pump at the same website. Look for item number 22 (part #3363394) under the Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump heading. For a cost comparison, you may also check They sometimes carry the same parts for less. If you need instructions on how to replace the pump, click on the following link:

I only provide the link as a courtesy. Since you've apparently taken the washer apart, I'm assuming you may already know how to replace the pump. Still, if you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS Sometimes this mounting slot on the back of the pump where the drive motor shaft inserts can round out causing the pump to slip instead of rotating. In addtion, bras are bad news for washing machines. For future reference, it is recommended to place small articles in garment bags prior to washing.

Washer won't drain - completely.

I have been having the exact same problem in a top load Kenmore 80, starting about a year ago when I replaced the pump because the old one, (30 years old), finally seized it's bearings.

The new pump design has some rough edges near the water exit port and lint slowly collects there until it stops it from draining properly. Since the lint clumps do move around a bit, when the problem first starts occurring it is an intermittent problem, but as more lint accumulates it gets worse and worse.

The old pump couldn't be taken apart, (and never need to be taken apart), but the new one can be disassembled rather easily and when the lint clumps are removed everything works great for another month or two.

The pump is the so called direct replacement from Sears, for the washing machine that they sell, but obviously is not well suited for machines like mine that do not have lint filters.

I suspect they want to render my machine obsolete so that I buy a new one, after all they don't make much money selling 1 washer every 30+ years, especially if it rarely needs service. Why else would they sell pumps that don't work in place of pumps that worked well and lasted over 20 years.

My washer will not spin on any cycle.

Before you try 'spin' only, check to see if your external filter (filter to the drain)in the machine is cleaned out thoroughly) And check to see if the out-water pump is working. Suggestion.
