Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Broken Machnine I have a Crosby washing machine that is about 5 years old. Last night we was washing towels and when the machine will not pump the water out (about half full) and when it hits spin it makes kind of a whinning noise and you can smell burning rubber like the belt is hot or something and it does not even try to spin.

    I have a frigidaire washer front load about same age do not remember exactly the model but 3 weeks ago it was doing some noise at the last spin and then we had a small leak under it. The repair guy told me the leak was the water pump seal defect we had to change it ($260) and now the noise at the last spin is still there but at every wash (even on empty) and this time they told us it was the drum bearing system that was gone ($500 at least). I am furious and I wonder why the Frigidaire front load are so well rated when you have to change a machine after 5 years. Did you and me just got the rare defective ones or are they all bad??? I am sorry to let you know that you might have to purchase a new washer if this is also a drum bearing. The noise happens only on the last spin and you have the feeling that the drum is running loose inside the machine. I hope this will help you to not have to pay someone to tell you that your machine is gone (here just for that you have to pay $69). Good luck!

The washing machine is a wma52 and has a 1 year old new pump on it last year. it will not drain the water away but is not making any strange noises like before. is it the filter?


hello, check the filter if ok then check the drain hose that connects from the pump make sure it's not kinked does it connect to plastic pipe and straight out through the wall make sure this not blocked.if it connect under the sink make sure your sink not is blocked if the pump has failed check the wiring to the pump hope it helps

F/L Washing machine doesn't spin


Normal 0 First drop the lower front panel and remove the pump so you can check the hose leading to the drainpump for debris, coins, etc.

Lower front panel has two? screws holding it in place.

Be prepared for water on floor... use shop vac or have several towels ready for water. Recommend putting at least one towel undermachine before removing pump.

Clamps that hold hose to pump can be a challenger to removeand replace. Consider replacing stockclamps with screw clamps.

This is a great fix.... did it last night.. Found coins, screws, etc. in pump. Once I cleaned out the hose area leading to the pump the spin cycleworked fine.

5 yr old washer is leaking


Ellbee, remove the two screws at the bottom of the front panel and lift it towards you. Two clips on the top that hold it will release. You can now get a good look at the pump. Catriver..post back.
