Frigidaire laundry center, Washer spins but does not drain
« on: September 07, 2009, 08:18:58 AM »
Have a Frigidaire FGZ831AS1 laundry center. the problem is that the water does not drain when in the rinse cycle. The drum spins and goes through it cycle and than turns off normally. I have check the pump by putting 110 power to it and it runs. Also there are no kinks or blockage in the hose. Any help in testing anything to see what the problem is.

Do you have power to the water pump from the washer during the drain cycle?

What is the model number of your washer?

If you have no voltage to the water pump during the drain cycle then you need to trace it back to find out were you lose it.

Did you find the wiring diagram inside the washer?

Trace the wires back from the water pump, should go to the lid switch and then the timer.

You may simply have a bad lid switch.

Does the washer run in the spin cycle?

ohara,

I don't mind the PM, but it will be easier and helpful to others if all your questions and our answers get posted here in the forums, thanks.

When you put power to the pump does it start pumping the water out of the washer?
