Fixing a Frigidaire top-load washer that won't pump out

Samurai Appliance Repair Man


This customer contacted me at 2AM Saturday morning of Memorial Day Weekend via the Service Call Request form at the homepage of my website,, and I was there in just a few hours. That's SOP for The Appliance Guru!

The customer was at his condo by the golf course for the weekend and the washer in his Frigidaire stacked laundry unit wouldn't pump out. That can really put a wet towel on a vacation! I disassembled the pump and found a golf tee jamming the impeller. In the video, I described it as "foreign object" because the customer didn't me want to say it was a golf tee in front of his wife and get him trouble. Vacation and marital harmony both saved by The Appliance Guru!

In case your pump really is messed up, you can buy the replacement pump here, comes with a 365-day return policy ==>
