Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

Washer Froze, Spin Cycle Sounds like Jet Engine

I purchased a model LTF2140ES0 Frigidaire front-loading washing machine in 4/2005. I moved this fall and a few days ago my washer froze, then thawed, cracking my solenoid and flooding my enclosed porch and basement. I have replaced the solenoid and the machine operates fine except the spin cycle now sounds like it's being broadcast through a cranky megaphone. It seems to spin fine, although my husband seems to think it is not spinning as fast. We took the back off and it seems like the noise is coming from the motor. Should I replace the motor or does something else scream out at you guys? Thanks for your help.

Fridgidaire front-loading washing machine model # LTF2140ES0 will not spin


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# LTF2140ES0, will not spin. To try and resolve your washer not spinning, please try the following:

    1)Check your washer door and make sure it is completely closed.

    2)Check your dispenser drawer and make sure it is completely closed.

    3)Your load might be too small. Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.

    If the above does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Turn the power back on and try any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

How do you replace the door switch on Frigidaire ltf2140es0 front load washer?

Our front load washer had standing water in the bottom of the barrel. The repair man over the phone said it sounded like the drain was clogged. He initially couldnt find a clog anywhere and had to take...


The washtub suspension allows it to move but when overloaded it will move rather more than it is designed for and could open a gap between the washtub and the door large enough to allow items to slip through.
The suspension is carefully designed to absorb the out of balance forces, with which the washer would be noisy and tend to "walk" around the kitchen. These days consumers demand smoother and quieter performance from their washers and so it is increasingly important not to overload them.
A friend called out the service engineer to his new washer that he had been operating just like his old one. The engineer began by plugging in a laptop and looking accusingly at him said he had overloaded his new machine nine times in the few weeks since it was delivered. Guessing is no longer an acceptable method of loading the washing machine...
