Remove the bottom access panel by removing the almost two hidden screws along the bottom. The pump is located on the right. Remove the two hoses and two screw that mount the pump to the base. Clean away. Reattach hoses and screws. TEST unit with panel off to check for leaks. The hoses can be a pain to get on right. Also beware water caught in tub and drain hose will leak out. Bring towels. Lots.

Where is drain filter on infinity model fafw3801lw3 and how do I get to it? Thanks.


Good Morning Dennis, thanks for your post!

From the information you have provided you need to locate your drain filter on your Frigidaire washer. The drain filter is right in front of your drain pump and in order to access it you would need to disassemble your washer. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend having a professional technician out to avoid any personal injury. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

A towel disintegrated during the wash. Wouldn't spin or fill with new water. Cleaned it out the best I could, but not working. Any ideas on cleaning out the rest of the lint? I'm sure it's clogged, but...


Hello Kathy, thank you for your post!

From what you have described you need to clean the lint from the inside of your Frigidaire washer. The best way to access any drain hoses or drain pump is to disassemble your washer. This is not a simple DIY job and I would advise to seek assistance from a certified technician. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Can you replace just the dryer on a frigidaire gallery heavyduty?


Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

From what you have described your Frigidaire dishwasher is not draining. Before contacting a professional technician I would advise you to check the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher tub or your drain line to assure there is no restriction. The filter is located at the bottom of your tub under the spray arm. If that is dirty it could cause your dishwasher to not drain. Additionally if your drain line has a clog or restriction it will not allow water to pass through. If both components appear to be clear I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a diagnosis. This will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt

How do I repair a frigidaire dishwasher that will not drain


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is not draining. This could be a possible problem with your filter being clogged or a restriction within your drain line. I would suggest you check to make sure there is no knot or restriction in your drain line. You can also locate the filter at the bottom of your tub under the spray arm and check to make sure it is not full of debris. You can lift on the tab to remove the filter and clean it out. If those appear to be in proper working order I would suggest it could be an issue with your drain pump or control panel. I would recommend having a professional technician out to diagnosis your dishwasher to avoid unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

Code e62 on frigidaire gallery series model GLTF2940FS2


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are receiving an E62 code on your Frigidaire Gallery washer, model# GLTF2940FS2. The E62 code means that there is a communication problem between the different control boards in your appliance. 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 appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

HOW TO REMOVE THE FRONT ACCESS PANEL ON FRIGIDAIRE MODEL GLTF2940FS2 TO UNCLOG PUMP


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
