Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

Washer won t fill water

I have a Frigidaire washing machine, model # FWT449GFS1, about 2 weeks ago it stopped adding water during the rinse cycle, when the water wasn't added the washer just buzzed and would not advance, but if I advanced it to the spin cycle it would spin normally. Yesterday it would no longer add water to the wash cycle or the rinse cycle but if I added water manually the washer would still agitate and spin normally. I have already checked the hoses and the screens are not blocked.

Pipes maybe clear but is your area wher you live prone to limescaling? where the water pipe/pipes go into the machine there is a switch to shut on/off the flow of water during whatever cycle you want.this might be blocked or sticking. first try to select different cycles and see if any of those fills the machine with water. if no water comes its one of two things. that switch is faulty or communication between the switch and the front consule is at fault.
contact your supplier after trying to go thru a few different cycles.

The timer for your washer can be found at repairclinic.com. Just type in your model number in the Search menu. It is listed as item number 1060744 and costs about $66.00. There's also a repair manual available for about $16.00 listed as item number 1170635.
Searsparstdirect.com also carries the part for about the same price. It is listed under the "Controls and Rear Panel Parts" section after you type in your model number. It is listed as item number 9 in the parts illustrations and the part number is 8546685. The Sears website also carries a repair manual under the "Top and Cabinet Parts" section as item number 1G (part number 4313896) that costs about $15.00.
I mentioned the repair manual just in case you wanted it as a reference for future repairs. Of all the washers I've worked on, this is one of the easiest machines to troubleshoot and repair. I hope this helps you. Please post back if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: fwt449gfs2 washes, empties some water, does not spin, knob does not advance

i would check the timmer. run it through a cycle and when it stops slightly move the timmer ahead. if that works than you need to replace the timmer... i had a washer that did that and it turned out to be the timmer on mine.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Frigidaire top load washer won't rinse

this can be two issues. One could be the control knob. there could be a malfunction here. secondly, you may have a faulty water valve assembly. the relay or solenoid may need to be replaced. i would start with the control knob.

Frigidaire FWT647GHSO when it gets to rinse first rinse cycle, it doesn't stop filling with water. It won't agitate or spin. It works well in the wash cycle, agitates and spins and advances


probably you've got something blocking the water pump from doing its job properly so check that the water pump is free running emptying all the water if not then there is a blockage in the pump normally ist a button, paper clip or other debris out of a trouser pocket eric

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

My GLTF 2940 makes a buzzing sound like a relay not pulling in all the way, during the rinse cycle. If you shut off the washer, and restart it on the rinse only cycle, it goes away.


its probably your cold water rinse only valves solenoid thats loose on the structure or the coil itself is loose,you may not hear it all the time especially during the initial wash start fill,try this, set the washer for cold water fill only on the washer,but turn off the water valves that supply water and start your machine to a wash cycle as normal,try this and see if it dry buzzes(without water),then try the same on the hot side,then with the water still off open up the machine and you can localize the buzzing noise

Cold water will not stop filling during rinse


while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.

Good luck!

Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts


Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.
