Fridigdare front load washer ate my rug and won't spin
« on: October 18, 2011, 06:36:13 PM »

Fridigdare front load washer ate my rug and won't spin.  It spews out a little left over water when we start it. Many rug parts are in the drain sink.....
Which part should I go for first. 
Looks like fun! :(

It is a Fridigdare model FAFW3511KR0 if interested.

You will have to take apart the entire drain system, hoses to and from the pump, including the pump and clear it out. That'll teach ya to put rugs in the washer. Maybe AJ can post a link to the service manual.
