In Topic: Fridgdaire FWS1339AC1 agitating, not spinning

Ok, amigos.

 

Got er open.  Belt broken.  Can turn the transmission pulley by hand and the drum turns in CLOCKWISE direction only.  When I try to turn either the pulley or the drum COUNTERCLOCKWISE, nothing.  I'm a pretty big guy and when I say nothing, I mean nothing.  Drum and pulley move on the springs, rather than turn a fraction of an inch in counterclockwise direction.

 

Transmission shot????

Am going to open this up in the AM.  Can I assume if I can't turn the transmission by hand (either direction) that it's toast and not worth fixing?  Guy at local used appliance store (sells some parts) speculated that it WAS the tranmission and that it wasn't worth fixing-not with a Frigidaire belt drive model.  Got the idea he didn't think that much of this brand and/or design.

Ok, I lied.  Running a second test load, and now its not agitating.  But with the 1st test load it WAS agitating.  I'm going to assume it's a toasted belt.


In Topic: Roper Washer RAS7233JQO agitates, spins, won't drain

Hi,

 

Love this forum!!

 

I checked the drain hose for kinks, and there aren't any.

 

Budget, the water doesn't pump out under ANY circumstances.  And is not blocked,  And has all fins intact.  I'm thinking it may be freewheeling around the motor shaft as Kohai has suggested.  I just need to find a used pump to test that theory.

 

Thanks again for all the replies.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I verified that it's spinning by holding the lid switch down with a flat-head screwdriver and watching the drum full of water turn around.

 

I'm going to see if I can find a used pump locally.  This pump looks identical to the pump in the Whirlpool direct drive washer I had for years.  I became intimately familiar with that pump from having done the rubber motor coupler replacement 3-4 times over the years.

 

In fact, this Roper looks identical to that Whirlpool.  Go figure.
