*Bows and Salutes center of the appliance Dojo*...

It seems wise one...that my front loading Frigidaire washer (model FWR645RHS1) has given up the ghost...pump was making terrible noises for a bout a week..and now...will not empty the tub...

As I am a car guru..and not worthy to carry the Master's wrench in appliance land....I would ask for help in assesment of my diagnosis, and in how to proceed for repair...

I have taken the front and rear off of this, and can handle tools without TOO much injury to myself...so I would prefer to repair this myself, provided it's in my skill level.

Wisdom would be much appreciated....

open up the rubber grommet to the pump and remove the coins(probably a quarter) they tend to lay there vibrating for a while,and then take a notion to flip up and block the inlet to the pump and cut off water flow.          :D

That's a good thing to check but, be advised:  I've seen several of these pump fail, making the same brinnelling noise, without having any obstructions in the impeller.

Ensure the pump suction hose is clear thusly:

  • Add a litte water to the drum, a quart will do nicely, thank you.
  • remove the suction hose (the accordion one) from the pump. 
  • If water doesn't come gushing out, remove the panties stuck inside the suction hose.

Once this is completed and the pump still won't move water, replace the pump.
