Hi,


 

I have Frigidaire model # FTFB4000FS1 it wont drain or spin. I think the problem started with a very heavy load. I cleaned the pump motor and drain hose and the filter basket. there was a few coins and hair and threads but not a lot. I also changed the wax motor (does the wax motor connecter need to be plugged in one way or does it make a difference if so how do you figure which way it plugs in). I was receiving e23 but when I replaced wax motor I got e21.I hear a hum when the washer should be draining


 

I would appreciate any help you can give me  

 

Thanks

The rule with front loaders is, "No pumpy, no spinny."  The hum you're hearing could be the sound of the pump motor trying to run but with the impeller jammed it's just humming.  Need to pull the pump out and turn the impeller with your finger, make sure it turns freely.  You may find something like this:

 

 

or this:

Also, disconnect the drain hose from the pump and blow through it to make sure it's not clogged.  

 

If the impeller and drain hose are clear, replace the drain pump ==> http://www.repaircli...ber=FTFB4000FS1

He's hearing the characteristic pump hum during pump out, meaning the pump is either trying to run and failing or it is running but the drain hose is clogged.  

 

 hear a hum when the washer should be draining

They're handy! I don't know the part number but I got 'em from Sears, they're standard automotive hose clamp pliers. I've refined my technique using a wet vac, as shown in this video:
