Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Your washer may have a faulty speed switch, timer, motor or just a loose wire connection. You will need to remove the left and right hand end cap covers and the screw located at the bottom of each cap in order to place the console in the service position. Lift up on the top of the end cap cover and pivot it forwards and them pull it towards you to remove. Remove the screw at the bottom of each end cap and slide the console towards the front and lift. The console is hinged so that you hinge over the back panel and access the back of the switch. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before placing the console in the service position. See images below.

I would begin by disconnecting the speed switch/wash action switch and testing the contacts/terminals for continuity. I added an image below of the wiring diagram and the chart for the wash action/speed switch to reference.

To test contact B, disconnect all the wires from the switch and set the switch for Low/Low and place your Ohm meter leads where the BU-O wire was connected and where the W-V wire was connected and it should measure continuity. Contact C is tested by placing one Ohm meter lead on the terminal O-BU was connected to and on the terminal where W-V was connected. Continue checking all the contacts on the wash action/speed switch and you will likely find that it is faulty. If the switch tests Okay then I would suspect a faulty timer.

This may be the issue. If not, please reply and I will be glad to assist you further.

Joey Thank you for your response and your help. Have not yet had time to tear into the washer and test what you suggested me testing. Will do in the next day or so when work slows down. Noticed one more thing tonite when wife was washing clothes: wash action switch worked fine tonite and last nite but was noticing the motor or agitator doesnt seem to have the power or speed it used to have and it seems like it may have a little bit of a humming noise to it. Fast is not as fast as it used to be and so on. Any suggestions on that? And if so how much are the parts like the speed switch, timer, motor etc? Thanks again Ryan

Ryan: Check the speed switch as I suggested and you will likely find intermittent speed switch operation. Let me know what you find. It's not likely a motor issue but a speed switch issue based on your symtom and details. You could possibly have a worn motor coupler. The motor coupler connects the motor to the gear case and when the break it can cause the washer to no longer agitate or spin and only drain. If the motor coupler is about to break; it can cause a lack of motor torque to the gear case. The speed switch is part #W10150079 at the approximate cost of $26.72. To access the motor coupler you will need to remove the washer cabinet, drain pump and motor.

Q:

How expensive is it to replace a three-way water valve on a Frigidaire Model GLRS2672CWO refrigerator?

A:

The water valve for your refrigerator is part number 241734301 and the cost is around $60.00.

One way to test the water valve is to reverse the wiring on the 2 solenoids that are mounted above the 2 plastic tubes that attach to the bottom of the valve. When you push the paddle in on the dispenser with the control set to water the icemaker solenoid will receive 120 volts. If water runs into the icemaker the water valve is ok and the problem is in the icemaker. If you get no water the water valve is bad.

It is hard to say how long different parts should last. Generally if a part has a defect it will show up within the first year. It is uncommon for a water valve or icemaker to fail within 5 years of purchase if it makes it through the first year.
