Question about Frigidaire FTF2140E 3.5 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer
We have a Frigidaire FTF2140ES0 front-loading washer. When you push the start button, it beeps once like it should, then when you push it the second time to lock the door and start the water, all the lights come on and it beeps three times. We replaced the door lock, but that didn't help. Then the parts guy told me it needed the control panel, so he ordered it. When it came in, It looks like mine all except that my machine's control panel has a place for the reed switch to plug in and the new panel doesn't. We went on and put the board in the machine and it seemed to work fine at first. The door locks and water comes into the machine, but it only runs for about four seconds. Then the machine sits still, humming low for about two minutes and then it repeats with water running in for about four seconds. It has been continuing this process for about 10 minutes now.
Is the missing reed switch on the panel the problem? Should I return the control panel and try something else?
The reed switch has been removed from the newer washers of same model. Nothing to do with the switch. Open door and turn the drum. This has happened to me a couple times. If the drum will not turn , try putting a little force on it. Mine acted the same and it was a sock that was stuck. Didn;t know what it was until I removed the boot where the coin trap is . and found a sock hanging down from the tub. stick your fingers up it the tub( with washer unplugged) and check for any material that might be there.
