Thanks for the help so far. I did take the harness off the motor and put it back on snug. Now the machine starts fills with water which it did not before. When I put the timer on agitate or spin the motor hums but does not move. So I have taken the motor off and can spin it smoothly with my finger both directions. I took the motor out of the cabinet but still hooked up to the harness and when I put it on agitate or spin it only hums. I'm guessing the motor needs to be replaced but before I do is there anyway to confirm a bad motor?
Frigidaire Stackable model FEX83CS0
If the washer is 5 years or older---there's a possibility that the TIMER contacts have burnt sufficiently enough to cause a drop in voltage to the motor. This causes the motor to "hum" and then overheat.
The LID LOCK/SWITCH contacts are known to do this as well.
The MOTOR SWITCH contacts can also be burnt.
I have seen Frigidaire top load washers that were used heavily (12 loads per week or more for 5 or more years) that required all three components (MOTOR/TIMER/LID SWITCH LOCK ASSY).
Testing these components by measuring amperage usually identifies the culprit. Sometimes---visually inspecting the contacts is really required to get a measure of the condition of the three sets of *contacts*.
It's very frustrating to replace a motor only to find that the new motor "hums"--so verifying fault is critical.
