FTF2140ES0 Frigidaire Washer Won't Start

We have a Frigidaire front-loading washer that is almost 2 years old. We had the front door latch/switch replaced a few months ago because it wouldn't start. I just did three loads of laundry yesterday and was going to do one today. When I push the ''Start'' button, the light flashes on and off and it beeps three times. On the area of lights above the ''Pause/Cancel'' button, the bottom four lights are lit up and they blink when I hit the ''Start'' button. I noticed that the top screw of the latch/switch on the actual machine was nearly all the way out and I tighted it up. Do you think something could be wrong with the door switch again?

My Front Load Affinity washer shuts off after a few minutes


Good Afternoon Lori - Thank you for your post! Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. If you noticed a humming noise, then once again it could either be a clogged drainage hose or pump that needs to be cleaned, or it could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

I close washer door but it wont go through cycle


Check to see if one of the two tabs on the door latch assembly are broken. If one is broken, replace the door latch. If the door latch is ok, you might have to replace the door switch and the door latch. To replace the door switch you have to remove the front panel. Remove the two screws holding the door switch assembly in place and drop the door switch assembly down into the bottom of the washer. Remove the wires and transfer to the new switch. Reach up and line up the new switch and install the two screws. Remove the two screws on the door latch assembly on the door, and remove old door latch. Install the new latch and replace the front panel. I hope this helps.

Frigidaire GLTF2940ES3


I believe E47 is a door lock code.
You probably just need to replace the door latch.
Common problem with those units.

How do I replace a handle on a Frigidaire front loading washer


This was easy when I really looked at it--2 screws on the inside of the door and it was off. Apparently it was designed to break easily to prevent damage to the latch and was made easy to replace.

Washer not spinning


You're problem is probably the door latch assembly. This is a common problem on Frigidaire front load washers. You can find the part at your local appliance parts suppliers. If the door latch assembly is faulty, the washer will run through all of its normal cycles, but will not spin. Hope this fixes the problem for you.

Washer won't do anything!


You have a burned out door assembly. This is very common, min just went out. I purchased a new door latch assembly at my local parts supplier and hubby is replacing now. The part costs $50-$55, but is cheaper than a repair man if you can replace it yourself. Must remove entire front panel from washer to get to door latch to replace, but should fix the problem.

Affinity washer not wanting to spin!


My Affinity washer quit spinning during the rinse cycle 14 months after we purchased the machine. We checked to make sure ithe drain was clear, and we tried changing the size of the loads. Nothing we tried worked. I was not getting any error codes on the control panel. We called a technician out to our house to see if it could be fixed. He diagnosed the problem as the control panel. We called Frigidaire to see if they would help us out with the cost of the repair since the machine was only 14 months old, even though our one year warranty had expired. They stated that they would not cover the replacement of the control panel. After the technician replaced the control panel and tried the machine, it still did not work. He called the Frigidaire tech support to find out why, and they told him that he needed to replace the door latch system, not the control panel. After he replaced the door latch the machine worked fine. When researching this problem online, I discovered that Frigidaire has had several problems with the door latch system on their front loading washing machines. They previously had a class action lawsuit due to this problem. When I found this out, I called Frigidaire to see if they would pay the repair bill we had incurred, even though our warranty had expired 2 months ago. After they contacted the technician that worked on our machine, Frigidaire decided that they would pay the cost of the replacement door latch and the labor fee. We had to pay for the cost of the initial service call. If you are having this problem, I would suggest that you contact Frigidaire. They will require that you have a diagnosis made by a certified technician. According to our technician, the flow chart for the Frigidaire front loading machines is inaccurate, so if they make an initital diagnosis of a faulty control panel you may want to have them contact Frigidaire tech support to double check the diagnosis. Frigidaire may help cover the cost of repair if your machine has a problem with the door latch.
