Tips for diagnosing a no-spin problem with a Frigidaire / Kenmore front load washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 05 June 2011 · 933 views

Take the back off and check all the electrical connections. Unplug and replug. Take the top off and do the same. Should be 2 or 3 screws on the back of the top panel to remove. Also check the door latch connections. The door latch failure is a common problem with these washers. To test it, put it in the spin cycle and let it go for a couple minutes. Then unplug the washer and see if the door opens right away. If it does then the door latch has failed. If it stays locked for up to a minute than the problem is elsewhere.

How to fix a Whirlpool Duet washer that leaks from the dispenser

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 04 June 2011 · 958 views

Two times I have addressed this complaint...both times an article of clothing had somehow found its way into the funnel that directs the water into the tub from the dispenser...
gently peel back the boot at about the 11 o'clock postition and see if you can see the sock in the hole...

In no way do advocate posting without your model #, but recognized this from previous complaints!

2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.

SUD SUD LOCK (OVERDOSE OF DETERGENT DETECTED DURING THE WASH CYCLE)
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor.
If “Sud” is displayed a potential Suds Lock is detected.
This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.
OR If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons
of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip,
the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
Possible Causes / Procedure
■ If there is no water in the unit:

4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power
