My washer works normally till the rinse and final spin cycle. It speeds up very fast even when set on slow. Yesterday it was sounding like a jets engine and suddenly it made a loud bang and heavy scraping. Can you please help!
It sounds like the bearings on unit have gone out due to the jet engine sound and the loud bang and heavy scraping noise you heard. The Speed of the motor would be caused by the speed control 134149220. On the bearings you would need to get outer rear tub 131525500.
I put detergent, bleach and fabric softener in the 3 separate compartments but they all empty in the washer when it fills?
Answer Hello Duane,
If you pull out the dispenser cup and look up into the dispenser assembly, you will see holes up in the top. These holes are most likely clogged causing filling and dispensing of the bleach, detergent and fabric softner. The holes can get clogged by mineral deposits causing a spraying into all sections. Try to clean with old toothbrush and vinegar. If this does not correct then you will have to replace the dispenser assembly 131803710.
Seems to work ok but the timer has to be manually advanced in most spots.
Answer Hello Tony,
It would appear that the timer is faulty and would need to be replaced.
Our washer does not spin laundry out to remove water, it only moves back and forth at a slow speed. I have cleaned pump and hoses, did find debris and removed. can you assist me where to go next?
Answer Nutter, If you're sure the door latch is locked, and the washer drains completely, Here's some help : Drive motor tumbles but does not spin. Display may show F 04. Program and start the washer in the Drain/Spin Cycle.Disconnect the six & ten pin plugs from the speed control board. Measure the voltage drop between pin 6 of the six pin plug & pins 1, 2 ,6, 9, & 10 of the ten pin plug. If between pin 6 (6 pin plug) to pins 1, 2, 6, 9 &10 (10 pin plug) reads 120 VAC. = Defective speed control board. 134743500 If any other readings besides 120 VAC.= Defective control board. 137005000.
I have replaced the level shocks on the washer, one of them was broken. Now the washer will not go into the final spin mode. The door lock light is on. I can not open the door while the tub is agitating. The timer goes through the cycles but the washer will not spin. I can hear the washer try and change to the spin cycle but it continues to agitate and then shuts off when the timer cycles through the final spin cycle. It leaves all the rinse water in the tub. I've reseated both of the connects on the control board but the washer still will not spin. What should I try next?
Answer Hi. Remove the lower panel. Use a shop vac to pick up water. Verify the pump impeller is not stuck or spinning loose on the shaft. Remove the debris stuck inside. If the pump is waterlogged it needs replaced. It is pump part # 137108000. This lets the pressure switch part # 134433701 see the water in the tub is gone, allowing it to go into a spin. Do you hear the pump humming wanting to water? Remove the sump hose from the tub to the pump input. Verify that there is no debris ion the tub hole. If there is a debris catch cup in the hose, remove it and clear all debris,coins, pencils... Then make sure the cup top ridge is installed into the hose 3rd ridge from the top for best flow. Also verify the detergent drawer is pushed in all the way so the reed switch part # 131505902 tells the board that it is. Make sure the magnets part # 131373800 on the bottom of the detergent drawer that works with the reed sensor as well. Thank You.
I have Fridgidaire front load washer, all still works but will not spin, I have removed motor control board, how do I determine if board is still working. part # is 134058400
Answer Hello Andrew. If the front load washer works, but will not spin, you may have a bad door lock assembly on the unit and will need to replace it. If there is power coming from the board to the motor, then the board is fine. If the lock is bad, these units will not spin.
