Question and Answers

Q:

16 year old top load Frigidaire Galaxy washer #FWS845GCS2: I found some parts on partsselect.com with diagrams, I really would love to fix the unit

A:

Hello,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.

I no longer have technical information on these washers. You did not mention whether or not you can move the basket by hand. If you can't move the basket it is likely to be a gearcase issue. Also, when you say it sounds like it wants to move, is the sound from the bottom of the washer?

To begin with raise the top and take the front off the washer. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. I am including images below that will demonstrate disassembly. Make sure the belt is not broken and see if the motor pulley will turn.

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance, include more details, in a reply to this post.

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 .

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.
