Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer
No matter what wash the machine is performing, it will not drain the water. The cycles will complete on the dial and agitation will occur but the pump simply makes a humming sound and will not drain. In addition it appears as final spins do not actually spin which I assume is because there is still water in the drum. Machine type is actually FWT449GFS1. Fridgidare Gallery
I fixed it on my own. By taking off the suction hose and spinning the fan inside it apparently dislodged something and is working now. Hopefully the problem won't come back, I was unable to find the foreign object.

Similar problem, had I. In my case, the fins on the impeller in the drain pump had worn down to the point that it no longer pumped water. It had obviously had trouble for a long time, but finally got to the point where it couldn't even pump below the drum. Probably it had pumped too much sand, kitty litter, coins, etc. over the years. I replaced the pump, and heard a sound I realized I hadn't heard for several years: the pump sucking air when draining.
I think the clothes are going to get cleaner now without all of that residual dirty water.
I did collect a good pile of coins out of the trap, but not enough to pay for the pump, unfortunately. Kind of a bummer to pay $75+shipping for a replacement pump, when all that was wrong was an impeller that's probably worth $4.

My machine wouldn't spin propely and it turned out that the problem was that the water was not draining fast enough. I found several coins in the drain boot and some nickels clogging the artery right before the pump. See http://www.applianceaid.com/frigidaire_frontload_washer3.html for a description as to how to get at the pump. To reassemble, I used a vice grip to hold the clamps open to make it easy to get the hoses on the tubes.
