Question about Frigidaire GLTF1240A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer wont wash- nothing...

I put a load in the washer, and come back to see the bottom of the load is soaked while the top of the load is dry indicating to me it hasn't moved 1 bit- the timer gets to the spin cycle and makes a loud humming noise with no action. Also when washer was working, it sounded like a turbine engine when on spin cycle- worth the fix on a 5 year old machine?

    my washer wont do anything but the spin cycle? help please

  • sfhlaj Feb 06, 2009

    I have the same problem. It fills with water and then it does nothing. Other discussions I read pointed to it being a problem with the water pump. So thinking thats what it was I replaced that (easy job and only $80 for the pump). Now as I move the knob through the wash cycles by turning it I get it to drain at least but it won't agitate or spin or go through any cycle other than fill, sit there, and only drain while I manually turn the nob to final spin. I took the back panel off and found that the motor is not even turning as I go through the cycles. I removed the belt and tried it again, still no movement. I called a repair shop and they told me it was the main control electronics and wanted $400 to install that. Any suggestions?
