Question about Frigidaire GLTF1240A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Blinking lights and failure to start

The washer drain froze and the water flooded the floor. We thawed the frozen drain and let it all dry, then we tried to use the washer and the indicator lights are all on and the washer will not start even though the water lines are not frozen. We've tried to press the start and pause/cancel buttons down at the same time without success. We've unplugged the unit hoping to reset the control but no luck. We've pressed the option and pause/cancel button at the same time - no success. What can we do next to get the machine to restart?

Re: blinking lights and failure to start

Suggestion: 1 Press and hold down 'spin' & 'dry' buttons to unlock controls. 2 Have u overloaded the machine with clothes? Reduce load. 3 Try 'spin' only after putting the clothes. Then put off machine & continue with main cycle. Three suggestions here........ What is the clothes capacity of the machine; try to limit within capacity. Try the "spin only" function aft putting the clothes. Then put the machine off & continue with the main cycle.

The pipes froze and busted in my garage which cause water to burst in my Maytag Neptune front loader washer Now the water won't drain Please help

That machine has an electric water pump, The first thing I must ask is has it completely thawed out? There is a rubber hose that goes from the tub to the pump, if the water in the hose is still frozen in the hose or in the drain hose, it will not empty itself.Also the water water level switch is in the top of that hose. Another possibility, is the pump or the water level switch could be damaged. You can access the pump by taking the front panel off. That is not hard to do, requires removal of the door and a couple of other screws.

My whirlpool Duet 9750 takes a long time to spin out and has a difficult time trying to balance

I owned a Whirlpool Duet and had spin/balance problems when I washed heavy and light items together. During a deep freeze my drain hose froze. Did everything I could think of until I ran hot water through washer. It took awhile to thaw. If your floor is weak, you will have a lot of vibration and walking. Hope this helps.

Floods floor when on rince cycle Program Bed andBath. Fault intermittant

If you didn't flood the floor when the washer emptied on the wash cycle, it is more likely that you have a partially plugged up drain than a malfunctioning washer!

Has you drains been cleaned lately, being the spring time you might have a root problem partially blooking the drains.

Watch you washer, if the washer flushes the water down the drain line it is working. If the water comes over the top of the drain line, then you have a slow drain.

I just moved and the washer froze while in transport. There is a small leak which means a line froze? If not a line what could it be? Thanks

If your line is not frozen and cracked then it's the water control on the back of your washer where your main water hoses screw into the washer. Check this water control because it is plastic.

Used too much soap...miele flooded the floor....drain fault buzzer blinking what do I do?


by using too much detergent the float for water leaks inside the unit would have lifted and triggered the light to light. to clear the fault have some towels around the front of the unit on the floor and gently tip the unit forward and allow the water to escape. the float will drop down and you will be able to use the machine again.
any remaining water in the unit will just dry up. no damage would be done it happens all the time.

Washer does not spin out and drain water. what could be causing this?

Possible pump failure or maybe just drain filter blockage , refer to user manual , clean filter , replace and re-try N.B. If machine is still full of clothes and/or water you will need to remove this first or you risk flooding your kitchen floor.
