Frigidaire Service Manual
« on: January 05, 2010, 02:37:58 PM »
Where can I find a service manual for this machine? Tumble action Washer Model FWT449GFS1. I found one but it was for a model with electronic controls. Since my problem is related to controls..... Well, you know....

That's nice but it is for a top load. Mine is a front load with a dryer stacked on top.
The manual is for a different machine.

I am just experimenting with manuals that load now instead of the old downloading forever. These can be printed out and kept in a service truck for future reference. Does it do all that for you? I have yet to reference anything nor do I know how yet.
Just shooting from the hip.

I'm not sure what you mean by

"manuals that load now instead of the old downloading forever."

The downloading only takes a few minutes at my speeds which are not great but the challenge is to find the right stuff to download 

The electrolux front loader reference is is the closest I have seen so far.  I guess I'll have to do a little exploratory, when we get tired of turning it on and off with pliers.      ;)

I find it is amazing that you can take a model number to reliable parts and get minute details of parts,  but service manuals are like pulling teeth.   :o

Thanks, I looked there.  You still cannot search by model number, and the descriptions are very general.   

The US Website for Frigidaire, adises me to go to the Canadian Website, which looks  identical.

The official answer from Frigidaire in an e-mail:

"Thank you for contacting Frigidaire. We apologize for the inconvenience but you will need to contact Canadian Customer Service for assistance.  Our system only provides Use & Care, Installation, or Parts Manuals. The service manuals are not available. Thank you again for contacting Frigidaire." 

So I guess that explains why I cannot find it.  :tickedoff:
