My washer won't drain / is that a timer or pump problem?
Answer Hello Dixie. Check the pump and make sure it is not clogged. It has a filter located in the tub to pump hose. Hope this helps.

How do you check the filter to see if it is stopped up?
Answer Hello Linda. Remove the hose from the tub to the pump and check the filter inside it.
Won't agitate or drain.
Answer Hello Ken. Check and see if the lid switch is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
My washer is behaving erratically, it continuously lets water in and and the drain pump activates and pumps all the water out, where upon water is let in and again gets pumped out. This occurs throughout the wash cycle and is consuming about 100 gallons per wash. What can I do to fix this, otherwise everything is working properly.
The first thing that you will want to determine is whether there is power getting to the water valve at all times during the cycle. With the washer running and once it starts to agitate or goes to a drain after filling, check to see if there is still 120 vac going to the water valve. If there is then most likely the timer contact is stuck and you would need to replace the timer 134014700. If not then the water valve 134190200 would be the issue.
Why does my washing machine not hold water ?
Answer Danielle, It's not likely to be a drain pump issue W10276397 or washer issue at all. Your first check needs to be at the drain/stand pipe, the top of the drain pipe where the drain hose from the washer is inserted needs to be at least 38 inches high from the floor. If the pipe is not high enough, the water reaches a certain level, then will "syphon" through the tub and pump, and the wash tub won't fill. You also want to check and make sure the end of the washer drain hose is not "stuffed" into the pipe, or that there is tape or towels sealing the hose to the pipe.
Fridgidaire washer. Final spin doesn't spin fast like it is supposed to. Makes a loud kind of buzzing sound & will spin slowly. Also doesn't drain. Cleaned out filter & hose. When I tried the final spin again I still have the buzzing sound & slow spin. Does the pump motor control the spin speed? Thanks.
The pump motor does not tell the unit to spin fast but if the unit is not draining then it will not spin fast. If there is a buzzing noise then it is possible that the pump is faulty and not draining well enough for the unit to go into full speed spin. If the water is draining completely then it most likely would be a faulty speed control board.
When I do a full load of wash I get a puddle of water in front of the machine. If I do a partial load everything works fine. What would cause this?
Answer Hello Isaac. You will need to look and see if the water is overfilling or if a hose has a slow leak and only shows up on the large loads. Remove the toe panel and run the unit and look for leaks.
Won't spin out water, it starts to spin then it just shut's completely down?
Answer Hello Intmd8r 333. You need to make sure the pump is not clogged and the door lock is good on the unit. Either part can cause the issue you are having with the unit.
