417.90802990 washer dryer I won't spin
« on: March 16, 2014, 08:54:10 AM »
The washer agitates fine but won't spin. When it comes time for it to spin there is a hot wiring smell and then it ceases to function for several minutes.  We had a repair man look at it and he said it was the motor. I replaced the motor and it's still a problem.

No, but I did have the front off and observed that the motor was not turning.

Check continuity of the motor wires back to the timer.  These Frigidaire built washers have a tendency to break wires near the motor due to the tub motion.  If the wires check good, it's probably the timer.

OK.. went back to friends house to check it out again... pulled the timer panel off and blew out a ton of dust grime and dirt. Strange thing.. it seems to work now... However, I think it is supposed to start slow spin while the tunb is draining... Only starts spinning 3 minutes after tub is drained. There is a chart of timing on top of the wiring diagram that seems to indicate this as well. See where it says "spin dir" that seems to indicate something going on during pump time... any comments/ideas?

It's normal for the tub to empty before spinning. Timers can be very intermittent.  If it happens again, try filing the burnt contacts with a small file.  Or replace the timer, 131788300.
