Machine won't spin or agitate. I have cycled power off and on. I removed the load of clothes and attemted to spin it while empty. The drum spun about 10 degrees and stopped. Drum spins freely by hand. Repairman is coming tomorrow between 1 and 5, but if I can diagnose and repair myself, more for your beer fund!:)

The motor only causing the drumto spin a few inches each time seems important to me. Does it indicate to you what might be wrong?

Check that molex connector at the motor. More on that here==> http://fixitnow.com/wp/2009/10/29/troubleshooting-drive-motor-problems-in-a-frigidaire-front-loading-washer/

Better yet, I'll tell you how can post pics for all the other Grasshoppers who come along and read this.

- remove front bottom quarter panel

- take photos of washer motor, using zoom and flash as needed to get good details on the motor wire harness connector.

- upload photos to a free online image hosting service (imageshack.us, picasa, etc.)

- post the links here so they can be clicked and viewed

Domo!

So it's the wire harness that you are saying could be the problem? That's going to include the "molex"?

molex is the fancy name the big white plug at the end of a harness

these clip togeather, seperate the 2 halves by depressing the clips and look for wires that are broken where they enter the plug

OK... Took molex apart and put back together. It all looked new. Took back of machine off. Removed belt and removed water supply. Started spin again. No movement of motor without belt. I put my hand on drive shaft out of motor and got a slight shock off the shaft. I'm certainly leaning toward a bad motor.

So, with me getting a slight shock through the motor shaft, do you think I can safely assume there's a short in the motor and replace it? Laundry's piling up quick!

with back off and belt on, set machine to spin, wait one minute then spin the drum pulley(watch fingers) if machine starts to spin when kick started you know for sure to go get a new motor

thats a quick easy test, the next tests require a meter and patience

a shock from a motor is not a sure sign its bad, your motor is mounted to plastic, if the ground wire to it, or your house wiring ground is bad and you touch the motor your body will ground it and give you a free dancing lesson

OK. Can you send me the list of checks to do with the meter? In the mean time I'll go and try the spin test.

Spin test no good. With belt off, I started spin cycle and motor tried to spin once, then stopped. It did not spin hard enough or long enough to pick up any speed.

unless someone has worked on the machine in the past and removed it, there is a brown envelope taped inside the cabinet on the left(from the front) inside it is your tech sheet that lists all tests

see if she is there, if not post back and i'll find one i can post
