How to fix a Frigidaire front load washer pauses itself before spin cycle?

If your Frigidaire front load washer pauses itself before the spin cycle, try the following troubleshooting steps:
  • Check the load size: Overloading the washer can cause it to pause to redistribute the load. Make sure you're not exceeding the recommended capacity.
  • Ensure proper leveling: Verify that the washer is properly leveled. An unbalanced washer can trigger a pause before the spin cycle. Adjust the leveling feet if necessary.
  • Examine the drain hose: Ensure that the drain hose is not kinked, twisted, or clogged. A blocked drain hose can cause the washer to pause. Clear any obstructions and ensure proper drainage.
  • Clean the filter: Check the washer's filter for debris or lint buildup. A clogged filter can disrupt the spin cycle. Clean or replace the filter as needed.
  • Check for error codes: Look for any error codes or error messages displayed on the control panel. These codes can provide insights into the specific issue causing the pause. Refer to the user manual for error code explanations and troubleshooting steps.
  • Contact customer support: If the issue persists after trying these steps, it's recommended to contact Frigidaire customer support or schedule a service appointment with a qualified technician for further diagnosis and repair.
