Default Washer fills on wash cycle and rinse cycle and won't stop filling!
Model Number: ????   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years

Our Washing Machine is doing something strange. When it starts to fill the washer for the wash cycle or rinse cycle, it won't let the machine fill up. The water just flows and flows. It's almost like whatever is supposed to close on the bottom (it's a top loader) is not closing so the water is just running right through it instead of filling up. We have to advance it to the spin cycle to get it to stop filling up. What in the world could be going on?

Where the drain hose goes? How high it goes?

What is the complete model number of the washer?

The drain hose goes out the back of the washer and is connected to the faucets in the wall. They are located above the washing machine, they are not lower than the top of the washing machine. The complete Model Number is FWS235RFS6.

Remove the front panel and check the drain pump. If it's always "on" during any cycles (especially during the wash or the rinse cycles) then the timer has to be replaced.

- The part number for the timer is AP2107583

Here are the break down diagrams for the Frigidaire washer Model FWS235RFS6

Ok, walk me through this like I'm 5 years old because I know nothing about Washing Machines. Where is the drain pump and how can I tell if it is "on"?

The drain pump is located inside the washer. You have to remove the front panel (#42 on the cabinet break down diagram) to access the drain pump.



Remove the two screws on the bottom of the front panel. Slide the front panel down and pull it toward yourself.

The drain pump should vibrate while it's working.

Did it vibrate while it was filling?

nope, it did not vibrate while the washer was filling. well, i didn't touch it because nothing in there is grounded but, my pump is very loud so it's easy to tell when it's going.

There is something mysterious going on with your washer and this is beyond my expertise.

Maybe somebody else on the forum can help you better.
