I understand that the 8 hour delay button is stuck on your Frigidaire washer, model# GLTF530DS. With the model number that you have provided, I do not show that there is an 8 hour delay button. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start 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 washer status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please leave me the model number of your appliance. Typically this can be found either on the back of the door or around the edges where the door meets your washer. Hope this is helpful.
Hi sallysue5928 - How long was the delay start set to? Typically the delay time selected will be displayed as 30, 60, or 90 minutes or 2 through 14 hours. However, try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it was unsuccessful then unfortunately you will have to wait till the time of the delay start cycle that was selected.
First I made sure the detergent dispenser door was closed. That did not work. Then i made sure that the dispenser was clean, by running water thru it. That did not work,. Then I turned the dial to hand wash and pushed the start button. That worked. Delay light did not turn on. Then i turned the setting to the proper wash cycle and pushed the start button. Clothes are being washed now.
Press the Delay Start button several times until the displayed delay start time is cleared or reads "00". Unplug the machine or flip the circuit breaker to the OFF position for at least half an hour or so to forcibly reset the control if pressing the Delay Start button does not alter or clear the displayed delay start time.
I had this EXACT problem this morning and ended up calling the Sears Home Central Team out (I have an extended maintenance agreement). This is an error code that CAN BE RESET by the end user (you and me!) and doesn't need a repairmain. Here's what you do:
PRESS AND HOLD the START and CANCEL BUTTONS. The four lights above the START button will begin to flash. Continuing holding the START and CANCEL button and "spin" your wash selector knob to "SPIN". Release the START and CANCEL buttons and Press the START button. This will RESET the error codes within the system and allow you to "cancel out" of the DELAY START.
IF the error codes are "bad ones", then the system will stay locked and you'll need to call a repairman; however, this "fix" should work for MOST of the routine system error codes.
Worked on mine and we're a happy washing family once again!!
