Frigidaire washer fwt445ges2

Hi,
Our frontloading washer doesn't spin in fast spin heavy load cycle. We thought it was overloaded so removed half of the clothes then it seemed like it could not push the water out through the tubre that goes into the wall so I pulled the hose out and emptied what I oculd into a container atthe floor level. It's just not working right. Thank you for any ideas.

Jim

My front load washer will not spin on the final spin cycle. Washer spins in wash and rinse cycle spin. Cloths are still soaking wet.


I appreciate your post, Rachel Kovach!

From my understanding your Frigidaire frontload washer is not spinning the final spinning and the clothes are still wet. If you washer is overloaded it will not spin properly to release the water out of the clothes. Also, a small load will cause your washer to not spin properly. You should additionally check the drain hose to make sure it not kinked or twisted that could cause your improper draining. If all that checks properly it could be an issue with your drain pump, motor, and control panel. I would suggest consulting with a technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help avoid unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

The washer tub bearing may be defective, but that is the only thing that I can think of. Are you noticing this on all loads or just heavy items like bath towels and jeans? Are you redistributing the clothes before the final spin, try that. Also do not overload the washer, wash to medium loads instead of one full to the top load. Wastes water but saves on repairs.

What will cause the washing machine to not spin fast enough to spin the clothes dry or not spin the fabric softener out of the agitator cup?


If your towels are coming out the dryest it is probably a problem with it being off balance. Did you make sure that the clothes are even placed in the washer. If you have a bunch of heavy stuff on one side and light stuff on the other side it could cause the same problem.

Not spinning and making loud noise


Usually when the washer goes into spin cycle, it takes a little time to do so because it is trying to start a heavy load of wet clothes from standstill. As it speeds up, if the load is out of balance, it will start to wobble and then the off-balance switch is activated, shutting down the power to the motor and turning on an alarm momentarily. If this is close to what you are experiencing, try to realign the load so that the clothes are not bunched on one side of the drum - that is, distribute the load around the drum. You should be able to close the lid and press start to get it to try again. If this doesn't work, try removing most of the clothes, especially the heavy items, like jeans or sheets. You might be overloading the washer. Try it again.

Machine makes a thumping noise when spinning


If its thumping you have the maching overloaded and the clothes (very easy to do with heavy jeans or sweaters) are all on one side causing an out of balance situation. Try relocating some of the clothes to the other side of the unit and if that doesn't seem to help remove some of the clothes to eas the load on the machine otherwise it will never reach maximum spin speeds needed to rinse your clothes.

LG front load washer/ clothes still wet after final spin


The heavy jacket prevented the washer from spinning at a rapid pace, so I added a heavy bathrobe to absorb some of the water and to balance the load. The washer then spun very quickly and drained out all the water.

Washing machine very loud and machine moves during spin cycle


Normal these mean unbalance load of clothes. Try to balance it with heavy clothes opposite each other. The fabric that hold more water tend to be heavier during the spin cycle. Also try not to overload the machine by washing clothes just half to 3 quarters full
