Plastic Mountings Let Loose - Hole in back of washer

My Frigidaire Washer GLTF1670AS was purchased on July 14, 2002. IIt lasted a little over 6 years. It developed a squeal so we bought a new belt. When we went to install the new belt, we found the machine was leaking because the plastic mounting bolts had broken and there was a hole in the back of the machine in the approximate size of a fist. This machine was never abused - it was used for the needs of a husband and wife - maybe four loads a week. We understand there have been many problems with the front loading Frigidaire washers. One doesn't expect a machine with such limited use to have to be trashed but it is apparent it can't be fixed. Guess your design engineers goofed on this model.

Ran one load of laundry in washer, started another and the unit just beeps 3times and I push to reset but lid won't lock or start cycle. I tried moving dials to wake up machine but got no luck


My GE top loader has a little "finger" on the lid , when lid is closed it depress a switch inside a little hole , Now YOU with a wood pencil you turn machine on and press the little switch inside the hole, it may have dropped too low for the "plunger". the washer should start. now tighten the screws for that switch.

Thank you for your post, Tom Lau!

I see that you are having a difficult time with your Frigidaire washer, FAFS4474LW, taking long a time to complete a cycle and not rinsing the clothes out enough. This could be a possible problem with your sensor or control panel on your washer. You may want to perform a reset on your washer to help clear out any miscommunication within the washer. In order to perform a reset you would need to flip the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to have issues with your washer after the reset I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional. This will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

Hello Ann Calk -Unfortunately depending on which part it is exactly since there is any adhesive available to glue it back together you need to purchase the entire door panel. I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the window washer.

Have to change cycle manually


Reason? There shouldn't be one. Seems you're extraordinarily unlucky with timers. Mine's 10yo, never broke. The timer is a standalone part, it's not dependent on any other parts for its longevity. So there can't be any other parts in the washer 'killing' it.

Are you handling it gently? Turn it slowly when setting, don't whip it around.
