Frigidaire gltf2940e front loading washer - dispenser drawer magnet replacement

A magnet fell out of the dispenser drawer when I disassembled the drawer to clean it. Did not see where it fits into the parts upon reassembly. Washer will not begin the cycle. Can you tell me where it fits inside the drawer. There is an illustration in the parts catalog showing the magnet -Part 51

But it is not clear where it fits. Any thoughts would be helpful. Thanks
Jack

    Magnet is out of despenser drawer causing the machine to give me a LOC err code. This has happened before the machine won't run with the magnet out, it cost me $150 in repairman cost last time. My problem is I can't figure out where the magnet goes. I found the magnet on the floor.

When you are looking at the drawer, the magnet stands upright on the far right side just inside the outer front casing about halfway down. There is a small plastic clip that holds it in place. You don't need to take anything apart to reinsert the magnet, just open the drawer, but it may be easier to see the location if you pull the drawer all the way out of the hole.

How to replace frigidaire gallery washer knob?


Good afternoon friend, that's a great question!

I understand that you are trying to replace the selector knob on your Frigidaire washer, GLTF2940E. Normally this is not a DIY job and we would recommend having a technician come out to the home in order to properly disassemble your front panel and replace the selector knob as needed. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Pulled out detergent compartment and magnet fell out. where does it go machine wont run.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The dispenser drawer on many Electrolux/Frigidaire built machines do require a magnet on the right hand side of it to activate the reed switch inside the console located there. It should fit in the bottom of the drawer, if you flip it upside down you should see it's intended location.


Let me know how you make out and I'll help further in any manner I can. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

This washer has an error code of DDO, Dispenser door open, would you think a sensor issue or something more?


Hi,


The meaning for ddo error means"Dispenser Drawer Open" .To rectify this problem you should try opening and closing the door shut. There will be a magnet which shows that the door is closed or open.The magnet is underneath the dispenser door, you have to remove the dispenser from the washer, then take apart the dispenser itself to view the magnet. If the magnet is missing you have to replace it.
Thank you !!

Our magnet fell out, where does it go


If you are talking about a small, rectangular magnet, about a 1/16" think or so, it goes in the detergent dispenser drawer. Looking at the front of the drawer, right side, a little behind the front. This magnet triggers a ( or should if its not falied) a magnetic reed switch which allows the washer to operate only if the drawer is closed.

If you take the drawer out, and remove the front, you will see where it goes.

Magnet fell out of the soap dispenser and now the washer will not fill with water


The magnet needs to be located on the right side of the dispenser housing it is there so the machine knows the drawer is closed. The link below will show the location of the magnet which is part number 51 near the bottom of the page.

Ddo


Hi
This ddo error code means Dispenser Drawer Open.Check to see if the Dispenser Drawer is open or the small tubular Magnet # 51 is missing. The magnet is underneath the dispenser door, you have to remove the dispenser from the washer, then take apart the dispenser itself, you will see snapping clips to unsnap, then you will see the magnet#8 in diagram#1 here:

Ddo error code on frigidaire front washer


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error DDo means dispenser drawer open. There is a little magnet attached to the right hand side of the detergent drawer which activates a reed switch to "tell" the machine that the drawer is closed. That magnet might have moved from it's place and that's why you are getting error ddo. magnet is part key number 51. Pull the drawer out and check on the handle part for a magnet. When the drawer is closed the magnet activates a switch in the console that tells the control the detergent drawer is closed. Please check this link for details(part #51)--

Magnet fell out of dispensing drawer and I don't seem to be able to find where to replace it. Washer will not start without it. Kenmore model 417 44152400


I dont see why there would be a magnet in the dispenser draw in the first place,,,, is it possible it somehow got in there by accident and when it fell out you thought it belonged in there ?

Front end washer lights come on but doesn't fill.


it fell out of the dispenser, hold the dispenser facing away from you on the left side there is a small slot, place the magnet in vertically so the long side of the magnet is on the right when looking from the front with the drawer closed good luck

Washer - soap dispenser door - Magnet fell out... where does it go


I had the same problem. If you turn the dispenser so that the front faces away from you, look on the left side in the front. half way up there is a space with what looks like a plastic clip that might hold the dispenser to the front bezel. This actually holds the magnet, which can be installed without taking the dispenser apart. Be sure to install (pop in) the magnet vertically so that the long part of the magnet sits next to the right side of the dispenser opening (when viewed from the front) when the drawer is closed.
