Question and Answers

Q:

Gibson front load washer does not spin. What could be the problem

A:

You could have a problem with the timer in the console or with the speed control board next to the drive motor. A wiring failure or a problem with the motor could also cause this spin failure. A service technician will normally need to diagnose and repair that type of failure. The signals going to the speed control board will need to be checked using a timer chart. Live voltage checks would need to be conducted using a volt/ohm meter. The timer and the speed control board are both expensive components. That is why I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose the washer before you buy parts and attempt to fix it yourself. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you are advanced in technical skills and you want to fix this washer yourself, reply to this thread and we will assist you further.

I looked at the tech sheet for the washer and see that test that you conducted. According to the results of that test, the speed control board will need to be replaced in that situation. If you need more help, let us know.

Q:

compatible stackable washing machines GSE746RFS1 Gibson Gibson electric-dryer - 5995299251

A:

I looked for a compatible washer for that Gibson electric dryer. Those appliances are manufactured for Gibson by Frigidaire. There is one model of Frigidaire Affinity washer that may (and I emphasize may ) work under that Gibson dryer. The Frigidaire Affinity model FAFW3801LW is the closest washer that I found that may be compatible with your dryer. You can view the installation guide that has dimensions through this link: Frigidaire Affinity Washer Model FAFW3801LW Installation Instructions . Here is a link for that washer on the Sears.com website: Frigidaire 3.3 cu. ft. Front-Load Washer - White Model FAFW3801LW .

That washer normally uses stacking kit part 134700600. You may need to use stacking kit 13162880 to stack that older dryer on the new washer. You may be able to use the same stacking kit that was used on your original laundry pair. Some experimentation will probably be needed to stack that dryer on top of the new washer if they are compatible. Keep in mind that there is a risk that the dryer won't stack properly on top of that washer since they are technically not listed as compatible. You may need to replace the dryer if it cannot be stacked on top of that model of Frigidaire washer.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.
