Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Frigidaire ltf2940fe1 ringleaders only turns clockwise sometimes when it tries to turn the other way it turns a little then stops. Sometimes it turns normally but it never spins unless the clothes are perfectly balanced. Once in a blue moon. Code e52 I checked the ohm reading and it went from about 6 to 15 ohms. It will spin on the drain and spin cycle.do I need to replace the motor?

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite H3t washer

What a blessing to find others with the same exact problem. Had a call in to Kenmore service center and was having to wait 8 days till a repair man could show up. Service call would have been at least $110 for the man to show up at the door. After discovering this website my wife and I are proud to announce that we found two (our 2 year olds) socks and one of my wife's nursing pads clogging up the filter along with some thread and a little gunk. Cleaned it out and in 10 minutes from start to finish we were done. Ran the machine twice and find it is running just like new. Like other postings here we found that a 45 minute wash took 90 minutes because the machine never could spin out on the first try. We thought it had problems balancing out the load of wash. Now it spins out quickly and without wasting time. I think of how much extra money it cost us to run the machine like this. Also, while we were sitting in our laundry room admiring the return of our washer I took a look at our complimentary Kenmore Elite HE3t dryer. Everyone who reads this far please do the following:
1. Unscrew the bottom panel of the dryer (unplug machine first)
2. Unscrew the black metal chute that goes from the lint catcher down to the blower (two sheet metal screws) pullout and clean.
3. Unscrew entire lint catcher from inside. (5 screws total) and clean.
4. Reinstall
5. One more step to really get all the lint includes pulling the entire machine out and removing the outside vent from the base of the machine. There is a 2 foot pipe to be cleaned out that extends from the other side of the blower.

I could not believe how much lint had bypassed the lint screen and had created a wall in front of the blower. I had previously checked the vent pipe leading to the outside wall and found no buildup whatsoever so I figured everything was okay. Was I ever wrong. I had found that the dryer (which is only 4 and 1/2 years old) was now taking 59 minutes to dry at normal temp instead of
the 41 minutes to dry when we first bought the machine. After I performed this service the dryer was back to drying the clothes in 41 minutes time or even less!!! In the future I will do this service, as described above, on a yearly basis. Once again we were wasting energy because we did not do this simple maintenance.

Unplug the machine. Unscrew the 3 screws under the front edge of the washer. The service technician manual is attached to the panel that slides down and off. Find F21 code. See suggested procedures. Note: My drain pump filter had a baby wash cloth in it along with some change that was disrupting the flow. It is exceptionally easy to remove, clean, and reinstall. Just line up installation notches when reinstalling. Whirlpool should have mentioned this filter in the User & Care Guide, but I could not find it anywhere in there.

Improperly installed thrust bearing kit. Too many washers cause the basket to spin during agitation.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you've described,...you likely need a door lock/switch assembly.

The door latch is likely the single most common fault (which prevent's any spin, and consequently drenching wet clothing at the end of the cycle) with the frigidaire/electrolux built washer's, aside from pump's being obstructed.

I think it fool's many people because the lock indicates it is energized on the panel, however the built in "monitor" switch inside the assembly fail's. I do see a lot of these particular machine's...unfortunately.

You should be able to purchase one at most local brick & mortar stores or on-line part's depot's such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclininc.com" to name a couple. They usually sell for about $50 or so, part # 1531974 ( # at repairclinic.com ) and are relatively easy to replace. It should resemble the image here...

As for replacing said switch, There are a couple ways to access it, through the top and squeezing your arm down the front or the way I prefer, remove the front bellows spring/retainer.

1) **unplug the washer from the wall...safety first of course.**

2) Remove the spring, get it started where the spring is located with a small screwdriver. Once you`ve got the spring/retainer off ( it comes off and on pretty easy by hand ) pull the gasket/bellows back away from the cabinet.

3) Undo the two screws holding the switch to the cabinet, pull the switch out ( there is just enough slack in the wires so don`t pull too hard ) and swap the wires from the old assembly to the new one and you`re in business.

4) To put it back together, just reverse the removal procedure. The trickiest part is the retainer. Rap the retainer around the boot leaving the spring for the last...and make sure the spring is located at the 6 o`clock position...usually. Just wherever it was initially.

Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if my instructions are not clear.

P.S.
There is a slim chance of a faulty motor or motor control board, but that would not be where I would direct you to start...those are exceptions rather than the rule.


Thank you for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

Regards,


Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Error code E04? Doesn't drain or spin. Machine

SEIMENS FRONT LOADER ULTRA SENSE DRAINING PROBLEM


On my SEIMENS washer, which is about the same as BOSCH, the drain problem seems to be usually a small sock jammed in the intake of the drain pump, or possibly in a hose before the pump. I found a quarter and a couple of staples in the attached settlement area where junk settles to avoid jamming the pump. Also a lot of dirt.


On the lower front under the door, while facing the washer, is a round plate with a little hole in it. Put something sturdy, a little bigger than a toothpick in there, and rotate the plate about a 16th of a turn, maybe a little more, and it comes off.


Take duct tape or similar and tape up the edges of the hole and a nearly vertical bar in the hold on the left side, because the edges will cut your hand, like they did mine.


Inside the hole you will see a black turn knob inside. Turn it left very slowly, only after you figure out where the water will go, probably a small bucket or two of it. I used a 4" funnel which got most of it, I think, funneling into the bucket. Maybe you can be more creative, but it is what was at hand. Still got water on the floor out of the garage into the street. Turn left slowly, so it doesn't dump water outside of the funnel. You will see the water is brown, silt, dirt and stuff.


If you get a lot of water out, that means the blockage is probably at the pump. If you don't get water out, the blockage is probably in the hoses from the washer, which means you need to undo hose clamps going into the pump and clear the blockage. That is harder.


Most likely it is something in the pump area itself.


After most or all of the water is gone, and it doesn't seem to unscrew any more, tug on it and it will come out exposing the pump and probably the sock.


Remove the sock, and check the pump impellors to make sure they are intact. If gone, that means a new impellor and probably a pump. Then move the impellor, it should click as it moves and stop. If it does, you have found the problem. Sock blocking the outlet.


Carefully clean out the **** inside the pump settlement area. If you leave any of the sandy gritty clumpy stuff it can ruin your pump. Also clean the plastic thingy you pulled out, and make sure the threads and sealing surfaces are clean there too.


Then screw it back in firmly, and start the washer, without clothes. I would just fill it up, starting the cycle, until it starts to agitate, then go to the drain position


With luck, it will now drain. .


This will save you a service call for something easy to fix yourself.

Fault code f07


The type of dryer would help a lot.... If it is a Maytag you can try resetting the code...
To reset the error code you need to turn the dial to the 6 oclock position.
Press the start button 3 times
Turn the dial 1 position clockwise
Press start button again 3 times
Then turn to off and this should clear the error code.if you still get the F07 error code then the control board may be the problem
If it is a Hot point You have a lower element failure..

Hello Amy Taylor - If both the drive motor and speed control board has been replaced, then I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. The washer could be experiencing a wiring failure or communication error with the board, which would need further diagnosing.

I have aa frigidaire front load washer model LTF2940FE1. We put a pretty big load of towels in this morning. halfway through the cycle the machune made a couple of loud noises, like it was shaking, and...


Never put a large load of anything in, they're quite frankly not designed to work like that for a number of reasons. If the drum is full then water can't circulate properly and your clothes won't get washed as well as they could do.

The machine shut down to prevent damage to itself, try turning it off at the mains for 30 mins, turning it back on and then putting half the load in. This should reset it and stop the shaking.

Hello
Sometimes you may have turned the screen control counter clockwise more than needed. Just turn it clockwise a little more and come to the point there is some light on the screen, at the same time looking for rertrace lines, and just turn counterclockwise again to just turn off the lines if any.
You must do this placing the TV on a dark room, then only you can set this point correctly.
Note that the screen and focus controls are interactive, and sometimes the focus control should be adjusted to a little to get the proper focus.
You can do it I'm sure. Go on. If any doubts please don't hesitate to come over us. Ok.
Take care when you work on dark.

Goes on works about 10 minutes. stop.try to turn


Problem is the motor is going bad. Sometimes the motor can almost cost as much as a new dryer. An excellent little dryer that will last and work ghood for you is Roper, made by whirlpool. Any Lowes store has these. Hope this helps.

Can't get oil cap off. Only turns clockwise


Turn it a little harder Counter Clockwise.

The cap will ratchet to the right to ensure the the cap can not be overtightened.

It will come off by turning it Counter Clockwise.
