Frigidaire

More than 10 years
Model number: CRTR9300AS0

Washer runs and agitates, but seems to just churn and churn, not draining properly at the end of the cycle (so pool of water in there), no high speed spin no matter what cycle used (though seems to be fine every once in awhile - weird). Checked tub-to-pump line, no blockages. Inspected drain pump, nothing blocking it, no damage to impeller. When it is called on to pump, it seems to pump fine, just never seems to get the signal. Drain line not kinked or blocked. Checked incoming water lines and cleaned screens, no change. Going to try door lock relay next, but running out of ideas. Doesn't seem like it works its way through the cycle, seems to just sit and run water through it for a while - so maybe timer is an issue?

Wife freaking out...

Can anyone help? Thanks!

Hi,

Yes, if the drain pump isn't getting the 120 volts signal from the timer to start the drain cycle, then your timer is bad. Thus if the water can't drain it will never spin properly.

Here's the timer for your model:
134014700 Timer

Thank you for this, as a follow-up question, the pump does seem to run (or make noise, at least) just not pump anything. The drain pipe has no blockage, and I can spin the impeller by hand. So does that suggest a bearing or other issue in the pump itself, or if the pump is not getting required volts, would that explain it running, but without sufficient juice to pump effectively? Thanks so much!

I was going by what you said here:

If your not getting 120 volts to the drain pump to make the drain pump run, then it has to be the timer.:)

Thanks again for the follow up, so as an update, I replaced the door lock, the drain pump and the timer, but we still seem to have this issue of the washer getting stuck mid-cycle and just churning away. Specfically, it has an issue where it fills and agitates for a bit, drains fine, then the water turns on again and if just flows water through endlessly. My wife timed it, at it went 6 minutes with water pouring in and the drain pump running continuously, pumping it back out, before she couldn't take it anymore and manually adanced the timer. Once past that point, it otherwise seems to run fine and does spin at high speed at the end, it just has this issue where it doesn't seem to know when to stop the water and/or stop the pump and start agitating. Is this a control board issue, that seems to come up in a number of these posts. Thanks again for the help!

Yes, its the motor speed board.

Unfortunately, It's been discontinued by the manufacturer.

Here's the motor speed control board for your model:
134149220 Speed Controller Assembly


You can try to find one on ebay or amazon.
