Question about Frigidaire GLTF1240A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Problem with frigidaire washing machine

Model is ftf2140eso, when the start button is pressed, the start button flashes, when you hit the start button again, the door locks but no water starts to enter the machine. After 20 seconds, all light go off then the machine starts to beep and all of the lights on the right side flash every 5 seconds. I've unplugged the machine to try to reset it. The only thing my wife did was clean the rubber gasket with a towel.

I've read in a product review that Frigidaire put out a service bulletin regarding the electronic timer circuit board in these machines. Apparently enough of these boards failed to prompt a factory response. With this in mind, you should call an appliance repair center and ask them if they're aware of this Factory Service Bulletin. In many cases like this, where a part is manufactured defective, the repair could be free to you.

I is this all the time on the LTF2140ES2 models. You will need to replace the door lock assembly. They fail quite often and cause the problem you are having.

We have a kitchenaid dishwasher model#kud102irbl serial#FU1705420 Clean light keeps flashing on 7 times, waits a few seconds and flashes 7 times again. How can we repair this?? Dishwasher will not leave...


If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).
