I choose settings for my washer and hit start. It starts to fill for only 3 to 5 seconds and stops. I already changed the water valve with the solenoids. What should I do next?

Hi.

Most likely the pressure switch is bad.

What is the model number?

If it is the pressure switch, how do I disassemble the unit and where can I find the location of the pressure switch? Can I do a continuity test on the switch to see if it is bad or do I have to measure the resistance in ohms? If so, what should the resistance read? Thanks for your help.

Hi.

Remove the top by taken out screws holding it from the back and sliding the top back and up.You should see the pressure switch on the right mounted to the frame

Part number: 134762000

Part number: 134762000


If the contacts 1-2 are closed and water is not filling in - check the connection at the control board and replace it

Part number: 137007010

Part number: 137007010


If the contacts are open - blow in to the air hose to clear it and if nothing change - replace the pressure switch.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Control Panel parts for Frigidaire FAFW3577KW1 - AppliancePartsPros.com
