    Angry no power to Frigidaire washer

    We have a Frigidaire front load washer model # FWTBB30DS0 and we have no power it's only about 1 1/2 years old. It worked one day and didn't the next. The outlet and power to the outlet is fine but nothing lights up on the washer. please help

    Check your soap dispenser drawer, pull it out completely, then re-install it, there is a magnet in the bottom of it, that may have come out, it makes the machine sense a start reed switch.

    Jake, I tried your advice and the magnet is there and not broken. Do you have any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    Jake,

    Could it be the reed switch?

    Yes, then its possible your reed switch went bad.

    Is this something you can fix yourself?

    A repair manual would be good if so.

    Here is the repair manual for yours:
