Question and Answers

Q:

Frigidaire Washer Model #FWS833AS1 won't agitate.

A:

Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.  I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance and needing to do some home repairs on it so it keeps running smooth.

Seems like the agitation from the gearcase is all that is missing from the smooth operation of this washer, and that can be checked fairly fast.  The agitator can be removed by  taking the dispenser off the top of the agitator and removing the bolt holding the agitator to the gearcase shaft.  Once the agitator is removed start the washer is a wash cycles and when the motor comes on check the shaft of the gearcase to see if it is turning.  If so, the splines on the agitator are worn and the gearcase is not being griped by the agitator.

If the shaft is not turning remove the front panel by removing the two screws at the bottom of the washer and this will expose the motor and the belt and pulley that turns the shaft of the gearcase.  If the pulley is turning the shaft the gearcase is what is faulty. 

You would need to call (800) 252-1698 to check on the part availability. 

If you decide to have a Technician check your appliance, call this number to get the service call arranged 1-888-266-6317.
