It is understandable to be upset with stains from the washer.

Brown stains are often caused by iron or manganese in the water supply, water pipes or water heater. You might try flushing some water out of the water heater to confirm it does not have a sludge build up. A water softener can help solve hard water and mineral build up.

Detergent and fabric softener products can build up in the dispenser tube and end up on the clothes. I recommend removing the dispenser to thoroughly clean it. I would also remove the cabinet and tub cover ring to inspect and clean the inner wall of the outer tub. Unplug washer before attempting any service or repairs. Over a period of time and using cold water washes body oil, dirt and undissolved detergents will accumulate at the water line on the inner wall of the outer tub. After the gunk builds up thick enough parts of it will break loose at times when using hot water and then get on the clothes. I recommend inspecting and cleaning the scum by manually scrubbing and scraping it off if you find it accumulating.

Another possibility is rust coming from inside the washer at the spin basket plate or the tub bearings Try opening the door and checking the tub for excess up and down play. You could have a damaged bearing on the rear shell of the basket. A technician would be needed to replace the basket, tub or bearings in this situation. You can examine the washer basket for rust spots, and if found try using a rust removal product for the tub.

To help remove the existing stains from the clothes, do not use chlorine bleach. Instead, use a stain removal product. Rit stain remover will remove most rust stains. You can get it here; Sears.com .

If the cleaning and rust removal products do not help, I would suggest having a technician visit if possible for any tub or tub part replacements. I do understand this may be cost prohibitive due to your distance from a service center. Often there are qualified technicians in a rural area to help. Please reply if the above do not help and more help is needed with accessing parts of the washer. Thank you for using Manage My LIfe.

You may have a problem with that motor control board in the bottom of the washer next to the drive motor. When the timer stalls, I recommend that you unplug the washer for 5 minutes. Plug it back in and see if you can get the washer to spin. If you can, then the motor control board (part 134149220) will need to be replaced. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Here is a direct link for that part: Controller . Unplug the washer and remove that back panel to access that motor controller.

If the washer still does not spin, you could have a problem with that drain pump or the timer. Reply with additional details if you need more help with this problem.

This can sometimes be a difficult failure to diagnose and repair. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Lyle, Thanks for your reply. It sounds like you have a good understanding of the problem. I think the pump is fine. Ive had to remove objects from the pump on several occasions and the washer cycled beyond this point, even with a clogged pump. I put an ohm meter on the controller and motor terminals and got good readings. The tech sheet only states that the board or motor is bad if readings are outside the specified range but I'm not sure that means they're good if readings are within the range - if that makes sense. It looks to me that it's down to the controller board or timer. I'm going to give your suggestion a try tonight. I'll let you know what happens. I had to replace the bearing (and outer basket) a couple years back so I feel I can handle anything this machine can throw at me! Thanks again for your help. Dan

Hello Dan. There are specific technical tests to check the motor and the motor control board to see which is likely at fault if you have narrowed your failure down to those components. Those technical tests involve the measurement of live voltage at the wire harness that plugs into the motor control board. Those live voltage checks are normally only performed by technicians. If you are completely confident that you can safely make those live voltage checks yourself, reply back to this thread and I will provide you with that information. Thanks, Lyle.

Lyle thanks for offering the test information. I apologize for not following up earlier, but I finally got time to work on it just yesterday. I put it back together, hooked it up, plugged it in and it now appears to be working fine. When I was testing the board I noticed that the motor connector was not latched on top and was almost, but not completely seated. I'm guessing that may have been the problem, or more likely having the machine unplugged caused the electronics to re-boot when I plugged it in again. Is that a possibility or similar to the issue you described in your original reply? I don't know how long the machine will keep working, but I anticipate needing your expertise sometime in the near future. I am fairly comfortable testing live voltages if that becomes necessary. Thanks! Dan

Hi Lyle, I've looked at many conversations involving my friends Fridgedaire washer not spinning. We can't find the name of the unit but it is a front load and about 5 years old. It tries to spin (and some occassions will spin a rotation or two) so I bypassed motor problems. We cleared the drain (which did have debris) ...did not correct problem. We changed door latch switches, problem still exists. I'm an electronics school major and can perform tests on the voltage or current if you can give me an idea of a next step. ???

Hello Robbie. We can normally provide you with plenty of testing information but there are many different types of Frigidaire washers with different control systems. We really need that model number of the washer. You can normally find that model number around the opening to the drum. Open the washer door to view that area. Reply to this thread with that model number and we will help you as quickly as possible with some technical checks that you can perform. If you still can't find that model number, send us a digital picture of the front of that washer. We may be able to help you using that information. Once we get the model number information (or picture) we should be able to help you with this spin failure.
