Question about Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Drum won't spin and water won't drain

I have a Frigidaire front loading machine that is about 7 years old. The dial will run through the cycle, but the drum won't spin and the water won't drain. I hate to get a repairman until I kind of know if this is a major problem..thanks for your help!

    I had the exact same problem, the washer would run through the whole cycle, but the clothes were sopping wet.

    Running the washer through a cycle while I watched revealed a buzzing sound I'd never heard before. It sounded as if a motor was under strain, but the cycle was progressing as usual.

    When it came time for high speed spin cycle, the washer wouldn't spin at full speed.

    I took off the front panel of my FTF530FS (FTF530FS1) washer. The drain pump was in the front right corner. After unscrewing the hose clamp for the widest diameter boot, I found a breast pad, a dime and ball of hair that were clogging the drain pump on the intake side. After removal of the clog, the machine ran normally.

No spin unless drains. Check pump and hose leading to it for blockage; if none then replace it. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Sounds like you have faulty water inlet valves. They may not be opening fully. You can test the power to the valves with a voltmeter to see if the power is quitting or if the valves are malfunctioning

Frigidaire GLTF2940FS...does not do a final spin/clothes wet


If water remains in the drum the unit will not go into the final spin.There may be a couple of reasons for your problem.
1.) A coin or other foreign object is blocking the drain hose. Check the drain hose for foreign objects impeding the exit of the water.
2.) The Drain hose is not raised above the machine outlet to create a siphon effect. See your manual for proper hose positioning.
3.) The pump is a third possibility which you should hear the impeller spinning during the drain cycle. There is a coin catch after the diaphragm of the pump that looks like a rubber boot that should be inspected for objects if you remove the pump. I believe the pump is about $60.00 and is accessible after removing the front panel under the door.

The problem is a faulty Door Latch Assembly. The same thing happened to my Frigidaire front load washer. The part is easy to install, costs about 60 dollars and can be picked up at most appliance repair stores . To access the switch just remove the wire around the front drum gasket, peel back the rubber gasket beside the switch assembly then remove the two screws holding it in place. remove the three wire connector blocks and swap in the new switch. My washer was giving me error code 41 witch is a faulty control board. But the problem was in fact only the switch...
