Question about Washing Machines
I have a front loading model FTF21400ES0 Frigidaire washing machine. My mom used it a few times when visiting. She said several things went wrong (mom has alzhemiers) so she just told me about the second thing today. First she said it was off balance and would stop but she just kept pushing the buttons for it to start. Today she said she thinks the door wouldn't close so she kept on trying to shut it then it did. When I first went to check it when it stopped working. It was up on the metal track the closet doors go on. So I definitely know it was off balance. All the lights will change to the right sequence for all washes. It just blinks and beeps and will not start. I was told it probably was the door lock. I have replaced that and nope it's not that. I really have no money to waste so I am hoping someone could figure this out for me.
I got the tech data sheet went through all the reset stuff but it doesn't respond with any set amount of beeps or flashed to get a error code.
This isn't a digital so no error code. I was planning on replacing the
front load washer control board but am afraid this isn't the problem. I can get a model # FTF2140ES1 cheap enough to try. Is there any way I can tell if maybe when she ran it off balance if broke something. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
The control board will store error codes in memory. If you can get this
unit in a test mode, you will be able to retrieve those error codes. As
you hold in both the start & pause/cancel together the error code
will be displayed.
You will need to count the flashing lights to read the error code. As you hold in the start & pause/cancel pads together, count how many times the row of lights flash on the far right hand side. This is the first digit. Now, as your still holding in the start & pause/cancel pads count how many times the start light flashes, this will be the second digit of the error code. Take note; all the lights flash at the same time so be sure to take separate readings
Without knowing correct Error code it is useless to waste money in replacing control board . You need to get the error code to diagnosis the problem correctly .

If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
?????????????? If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
