HELPING DO-IT YOURSELFERS SINCE 1999

Front load washer would do everything but spin out. Would drain flop, back and forth and shut off.

Appliance: Model FRIGIDAIRE My Repair & Advice

Looked online to see if problem was experienced by others and found numerous people with same issue. As strange as it seemed the problem focused on the door lock assembly. I ordered part from Appliance Parts Pros.com at 11 PM on a Monday and the part arrived in a day and a half with no extra shipping costs. I TURNED OFF POWER AT BREAKER. I took the spring loaded ring off the rubber drum gasket and pulled back the rubber on the lock side of the door. I removed 2 phillips head screws releasing the lock and removed it from front door panel. I removed 3 wire connections and attached them to new part and installed back in reverse order with 2 screws. Put rubber back in place and replaced band with spring. Turned breaker on and tested washer. Good as new. Appliance Parts Pros. are great.
