Frigidaire washer spins and stops
Model Number: FWX645RFS0 Brand:
More than 10 years
I have a Frigidaire washer whose model # is FWX645RFS0. The washer washes (agitates) fine but it has problem during spin cycle. When it tries to spin, it will pull in the tension pulley as if the tub is too heavy to spin. After the tub starts to rotate, the spring loaded tension pulley is released and makes the loud noise. While the tub spinning is speeding up, the washer will keep doing this (pulling and releasing pulley) for a few times until tub starts to spin fast. However, the motor will shut down after tub spinning for some time (varying from 20 sec to one min). After that, washer will not work anymore. It looks like the overload protection is activated. If I remove the belt, the motor will run fine.
I'd appreciate it if anyone can help me to identify the problem. Thanks.
