Question about Frigidaire GLTF530DS Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Front Loading Washing Machine - stuck in cycle.

The washer does run, it can pull water in and pump water out. The problem occurs when it gets to the rinse cycle. At that point, it pumps out the wash water, then begins the process of bringing in the rinse water at which point it just hangs in that position. Water continues to come in and the machine never goes into its rinse mode. If you shut down the unit and move the timer a bit forward it will then pick up where it should be, that is, it will finish the rinse cycle. But on its own it never gets there. The situation repeats itself on the 2nd rinse. So does that mean that the timer needs to be replaced? Is that the part I need to address this problem?

    I do not think that is the problem. The drain hose comes right out and up and the swan neck is 6 inches above machine.

    While testing to see where the problem was, I got distracted and forgot about it. Meanwhile it got stuck in that pre-rinse mode, where the water was coming in. Eventually the water filled the tub to the extent that it forced open the door and flooded the room. If the water was siphoning off, I do not think that would have happened.

    I think its stuck in that mode and need to know what part needs to be replaced to restore that.

    when my washing machine gets to the rinse cycle I get an E20 on the timer. What does that mean, and how do I fix that

  • ratherbfishn Dec 23, 2007

    I have a GE front loading washing machine that is 2 years old. During any of the wash cycles selected it will rinse and then pump water out, but the pump will continue to run and never shut off. It is as if it thinks there is more water to pump out, but there is little or no water left in the bottom of the machine where the screen and pump assembly is located. I have cleaned the pump discharge hose and screen and cleaned out the rubber boot assembly under the drum that leads to the pump.

There may be a simple solution. on rinse the water level is higher. it is just possible that the water is syphoning out. try putting the drain hose higher in a swan neck

    you have the drain obviously fitted correctly.

    i doubt it is the timer. water level is determined by the pressure stat not the timer. leading from an air chamber towards the bottom of the machine, you should find a small diameter hose leading to the pressure stat. the fault may be the air chamber filled with gunk, the hose blocked or split or faulty pressure stat.
    one way to check is to fit a sduitable hose to the pressure stat, put machine on rinse and gently put pressure into hose from mouth. you should hear clicks as the pressure stat operates and the water intake should shut off.
    pls bear in mind i'm in UK not US

Won't drain and showing F 01


Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

Washer does not spin. Tried to start cycle over


Hi,

If you are getting this code it is because your washing machine has tried for at least ten minutes to drain the water out of the machine. The most likely cause of this problem is that you have a plugged pump filter or you have something stuck in the pump filter.Make sure that you unplug your washing machine.To clean out the pump filter you must empty the washing machine water. The best way to do this is to manually drain the water into a low bucket or basin. Then lay a towel down to catch to remaining small amount of water. Remove the pump filter, clean out any debris, and wash out the filter. Then plug your washer back in and restart the washing machine.Check that your machine is properly leveled. A washer that is too far out of level may not drain properly. Make sure that you are level front to back as well as side to side.This solution will solve your problem

Thank You !!

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the water pump. Either the water pump bearing is bad or there are some tiny pieces of debris stuck in the water pump. It is located below the door latch assembly. Remove the front panel and check the drain pump which is attached with hoses. Remove its clamps and clean the drain pump. You can also remove the drain pump by unbolting it from the washer base. If still the issue persists, then check the motor speed control board which is located inside the bottom of the washer. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or
post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Why does my front loading washing machine smell bad and make my laundry smell sour?

You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Something is stuck in our LG front loader washing machine so the water wont empty in the spin cycle


There should be two screws under the front lower panel. Remove the two screws and remove the lower panel. You should be able to access the pump from here.
Inscrew the cover on the front of the pump and clean.

Whirlpool Duet Sport not running it makes clicks and it grinds


A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth.=======
It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....


The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine
