    Dear ngafm

    It is looking like you do know what is the way/methods to fix the problem.

    Even it is just trial and error approach - I would like to know it.

    Can you share ?

    solution is to push & hold the 2 buttons above "the lock indication" on the control panel for 3-11 sec. The child safety feature is on, this will turn it off.

You have accidentally locked the machine. Hold the "Options" button and the "Select" button simultaneously for 10-15 seconds and you are goog to go.

Frigidaire refrigerator beeps every 20 seconds or so. three beeps.

try opening the door.leave it open.unplug the fridge for at least 5 minutes, no less,with the door still open.after that,plug it back in.wait for it to beep.then close the door.
this would reset the door alarm,which beepes when the door isn't properly closed.
also you should wait 24 hours between changing the temperature or it can mess up your fridge.!

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know how to replace the upper hose to the drum of your Frigidaire washer, model# GLTF2940FS0. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instructions. I suggest either contacting the manufacturer or your local authorized technician for further assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Error message LOC

Do the following:
The Control Lock (child lock) is on: To prevent accidental operation of the washer or alteration of the cycle settings, press and hold the lock symbol until you hear 3 beeps and LOC is displayed. To cancel, press and hold the lock symbol until LOC is no longer displayed. To put the control into control lock you do the same thing.
God bless you

Washer won't run. It beeps 3 times and flashes "err" and "LOC".

HI. The term"LOC" will be an indication of the "Child Locking" feature that has been activated either by mistake or intentionally. This is a safety feature to prevent unwanted starts when children are present.

To unlock the controls,press "Options and Select" at the same time and hold for 10 seconds until ”LOC” is no longer displayed.

  • NOTE_ If the release procedure doesn't unlock the unit and the letters LOC continue to appear, this will be a strong indication of a severe fault within the main control board. try to power cycle the unit if this is the case. if the power cycling doesn't produce good results, replace the main control board assembly.

Error Message "LOC" Three beeps, won't door lock or start

You may have to remove the lower front panel to get to the tech manual. If the door latch isn't latching though nothing is going to happen.

Frigidaire - GLTF2940FS0 -LOC message on display

ngafm at your service,

With an error code or loc message the only way to find and to repair this is,

First unplug the washer and wait a ten minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem GREAT!!! WE WIN!

If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!

How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm

The control panel may in *LOCKED* mode. Press the *OPTIONS* and *SELECT* buttons at the same time and hold for about three seconds to unlock the control panel. Make sure the detergent tray is fully closed too.
