Washer stops advancing
« on: January 02, 2011, 01:59:02 PM »

I have a Frigidaire Electrolux FWS833AS2 washer that i've noticed has been running having an unknown issue.

I've tried to monitor it and see how its messing up but its weird. I set it for a cycle and it will randomly get stuck on a cycle when its trying to rinse. I'm not sure if its a bad timer or maybe its not holding its water and thats why it can't advance is because the water drains out instead of staying in the washer to activate the next cycle.


Thanks a bunch :)

This machine will not wash or rinse with a bad lid switch,therefore,we rule out the lid switch.
Unless you have water siphoning out the drain hose,the problem lies with an intermittent timer operation.
Could be a loose connection in the wire harness.
My thoughts are a weak timer motor or bad timer gears.
