I have a Frigidaire laundry center / washer dryer

Customer Question
I have a Frigidaire...

I have a Frigidaire laundry center / washer dryer combination. After the final rinse cycle the tub was not emptying. I replaced the timer switch and that solved the problem. That was about a month ago. Now the same problem has recurred. Is there something that could be causing the timer switch to malfunction?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Give me a minute..I'll get the model number

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Model number is ***** FEX831CS0

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Does the tub go thru a spin mode?

And have you tested the drain pump to see if it may have a loose electrical connection on it ?

I replaced the drain pump at the same time that I replaced the timer switch. The tub doesn't spin.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

ok just because the pump is new does not mean it is getting voltage to run and drain the washer!

And have you tested the lid /lock switches to make sure they are making for the unit to go into a drain and spin mode?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
is there a way to over-ride the lid switch, to see if that is the problem ?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

Yes ,you will need to bypass both the lid switch and the lid lock !
