Frigidaire washer FWX233RES1 spins when its washing
« on: August 07, 2012, 07:30:55 AM »
Just purchased this washer (FWX233RES1) used. The tub spins really fast while in the "wash" cycle. This causes the water to splash around and is causing the load to become off balance. What is causing the tub to spin during the wash cycle?

Sounds like a faulty transmission. It should turn one way to wash and the opposite way to spin.

Sir, thank you for the reply.
Is it hard to replace the transmission?

It's not too bad, but requires an almost complete disassembly of the machine. With the cost of the part, it's probably not worth repairing.  I hope you didn't pay too much for it.

I have a simular Frigidaire with a bad timer. I may try and use the transmission out of that washer if it's not to hard to do.
Would I need to install any new seals if I replace the transmission? I paid $50 for the washer. :(

The same tub seal with a bunch of extra crap you don't need is $19 cheaper, go figure.
