Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer

Washer will not spin

Washed 3 loads yesterday just fine. On the fourth load, the washer stopped spinning. Gets stuck in "spin" and wont do anything. Will drain when put on drain cycle, and will fill and rinse. Just stopped spinning and gets stuck there doing nothing. Washer will fill with water but will not agitate. Manually move the dial to spin and it will drain, cleaned drain and found several coins, I can feel the rubber coupling and easily detect when there is water inside but upon draining the pump is definitely doing the job of draining. When it is supposed to agitate or spin I can hear the drain pump making quite a bit of noise but it does drain. There is good tension on the drive belt and I can see the winding spin inside the motor if I manually turn the belt but I never see the motor turn on its own, it appears there is no signal being sent to the motor.

    I have a Frididaire Front Loan Washer that's 2 years old. Did 4 loads of laundry today just fine. Went to remove 5th load and was soaking wet. Put washer on Spin only to remove water and nothing happens. The washer will cycle through a normal wash cycle just fine, timer counts down, drains, fills, and agitates, just will not spin. What is wrong with it?

After doing extensive research, I found out it is the door lock assembly. We went to our local appliance parts store and bought the new assembly. If you are handy enough, you can replace it yourself. You have to remove the entire front panel of the washer, but it only costs $50, so that is a lot better than buying a new machine. After we got the new assembly installed, the machine worked like new. The guy at the parts store said the replacement part is a lot better than the original piece and hasn't seen one fail yet.

I had what I believe was the same problem, at least same symptoms with my Frigidaire FWT445GES2 washer. It was caused by a broken door latch. A simple fix and an inexpensive part. Unfortunately I paid Sears about $70 to learn this. Look at the latch and if it is broken, replace it. If it is not broken then the cause for the problem must be different from mine.

Hi,There are several causes for this problem. Check these.


  • No spin at all: the lid switch is fried. You test it with your meter. There will be a motor which spins the washing machine's drum. If you don't hear the motor running, then its the lid switch which would have been broken and needs replacing. A bad lid switch wil interrupt the spin cycle.

  • In the Whirlpool washers, a common problem is that thelid plunger stops making contact with the lid switch. Use a pen tomanually press the lid switch actuator (with the lid up, duh). If thewasher spins...well, you know the rest.

  • Older (belt-drive) Whirlpool: the spin solenoid isburned out or has cut wires. Ohm out that solenoid (20-30 ohms) andtest with a test cord. Make sure the wires are intact by giving them alittle tug. If this is OK, you may need to adjust/replace the basket drive.



  • Timer is fried. On older timers, it's sometimespossible to run an external jumper to replace the bad internalcontacts. Usually, however, the entire timer must be replaced. The onlyway to confirm is to use your meter and wiring diagram.

These are the causes that have to be inspected.You can also visit this site www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp

Hope my info solves your problem,Thanx for using fixya,Good luck.

Code LE on wm2277hb washer


I would pull the back panel off, and do a general inspection. When moved, things can get moved out of place by bumps and bouncing and may be apparent by inspection. Most front loaders use either a variable diameter pulley or a gearbox to change the drum rotation speed from slosh to spin. Take a look at the belt that on the pulley on the drum 'axle' and see if there is an apparent mechanism to 'shift into hi gear'. The code is just reporting that it could not spin. A visible inspection may reveal the cause.

Use a quarter inch nut driver to remove the bottom panel. A tech sheet should be under there that will give diagnostics. Open the pump filter and check for objects.616c06e.jpgea4423e.jpgfb90284.jpg

Washer stopped during spin cycle


Hello, try to checked the pump filter, and the pump is actually working. then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump works fine then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Thanks

Washer will not spin


I fixed it yesterday. After checking the continuity of my lid switch and pressure switch and finding them ok I removed the tubing from the pressure switch and applied air (blew into it). There was a clog and blowing on it removed it for now. Apparently the pressure switch was telling the machine that the tub was full of water and wouldn't let it start the spin cycle. I ran three loads last night and it worked perfect. I may have to remove the connection on the side of the tub and clean it properly if it clogs again.

Washer problems


if it wont drain , check your lid switch, check out your motor coupler, if it will not agitate and spin, replace your motor coupler, if it agitates and dont spin, replace your lid switch.

alot of times the washer will drain but we hurriedly cut it off when we hear noise or the water is out but it never spinned and so the clothes are soapy wet...
