Frigidaire Horizon 2000 washer

Model: WIL-W-0 (that's a zero, not an 'o')

Serial #: XC13709987

Hi. Our washer, which has been in storage for 2 years and was just hooked back up last week, is not spinning out on it's first attempt. Everyhting's still soapy I keep having to run more water and let it go through the spin cycle a second time.

The belt has only about 6 months of use on it - my father replaced it and at that time, increased tension on the idler pulley. I'm thinking that i might need to put more tension on that pulley, but that's just my initial guess

So . . .

1 - if it is just more tension i need, how do i accomplish that? There's nothing obvious upon first inspection that would seem to be an easy way to tighten it.

2 - if not, what else could it be?

Thanks much.

Hello, my soapy friend. When you say it "is not spinning out on it's first attempt," is the motor running during this time? If so, then you should observe and report what is happening with the belt and pulleys. You see? Very good.

Actually, it was the amount of water in the rinse cycle that was causing it not to fully rinse out.  The hot water tap hadn't been closed for over a decade when i bought the house (washer came with the house when the last owner bought the place) and when i swapped the old washer for mine, it destroyed the packing inside the hot water valve.

I thought the leaking was coming from the hot water tap not completely shutting off, but it was actually COLD water leaking back up the pipe and out the valve.  Thus, some of the water that was supposed to be in the washer during the rinse cycle was coming out the tap and ending up in a bucket!

New packing ($2.47) + one hour of effort = functional hot water tap and non-soapy clothes.  How simple.  Sorry for wasting your time!

Hello, my sorry friend. Out here, in the Afghani high plains at the foothills of the Hindu Kush mountain range, we have nothing but time as we toil under the hot desert sun in our rocky farms to bring forth our cash crop of poppies to sell to your Ameedican CIA. And then there are the long, cold nights snuggled under the yak skins with my four wives, generating heat and friction to keep us warm through the night. I even have time enough to write rambling, pointless posts such as this one. So, you see, there is no need to apologize for wasting my time; my time is your time, my timeless friend.
