Question about Frigidaire Gallery Series GLTF2940FA 3.5 cu. ft Front-Load Washer

Rince compartment won't fully drain

A few months ago, i had a error code on it (i don't remember the code) it had something to do with the magnet which I fixed thanks to a previous solution to someone else's problem on your site. The rinse compartment wasn't fully draining back then before getting the error code and pushing the magnet back into its place. To my amazement, it not only allow my washer to start back up but it would completly drain the rinse. Now, it is back to not draining fully (full of water) but the magnet is in its place. Do you have a solution for me again? Thanks, Rinsed Out.

It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

SOURCE: Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts

Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.

SOURCE: Frigidaire front load washer (LTF600ES1) Error E20

holla, Im not showing a E20 code on the tech sheet. There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys. If you see a different error code, post it. If not, I would suspect a clogged pump...Catriver.

SOURCE: E10 error

The error code chart indicates that this could be a water flow problem, too low of a drain hose height. Check for clean filters of the inlet water line. Check that the drain host was assembled as per the manual's instructions. In any case your machine is still under warranty and you can ask for Frigidaire's assistance. Good luck!

Whirlpool duet fw95hedco washer won't spin at max speed & leaves all clothes wet. No error codes during tech diagnostic visit. Washer only 18 months old.


Possible Defective washer transmission. Do you overload the washer with heavy items like towels or blue jeans very often? That can cause early failure.

F02 error code whirlpool washer. Already replaced drain pump and cleared hoses. Problem (code) still occurs. Do I need to reset something?


Considering what you've already tried, I'd suggest it is an error with the check ball in the tub to pump bellows.
Try this link, (you made need to copy & paste to your navigation/tool bar)
http://fixedappliance.blogspot.com/2011/11/whirlpoolkenmoremaytag-more-f02f21-sd.html
omit the talk of detergent and pump cleaning since you've done that and instead focus on the check ball device that commonly gets stuck and initiates an F2/ F21 error on these washers.
For an abbreviated version, check out an earlier solution I posted here on Fixya a while ago...

2004 Chevy Cavalier engine light and trac off light


One year ago---your check engine light came on
The PO405 code was for an EGR Valve issue
No mention--- if you had that fixed

A Few Days Ago---you get Trac Light on,that is part of
the ABS Braking System
Now that system has to be diagnosed & repaired,not just
continue to use the car,actually make the repair, before
you do some damage or can't stop the car & worse things happen

Changing Trans Fluid---is NOT a FIX for anything,but should
be done on all vehicles every 3 years.

If the Engine Management System isn't working correctly,then
your trans won't work as it should either

You need to be proactive & immediately have any abnormal
operation or check light problems, at least diagnosed in a few days
of noticing them

You need to stop using any car that isn't 100% & have it
repaired as soon as possible.

Not wait weeks or years.
Being 9 years old, the trans may also have it's own issues

Battery fully charged, bike turned on after, but on 2nd try after couple of hours, no power


Based on what you've said here I would say that either the battery is incapable of maintaining a charge or something is draining the battery. To test to see if something is draining it, disconnect the positive cable and put an ameter between the cable and the battery to see what current is being 'used' when the ignition switch is off. It should read ZERO amps. If there is current flowing then something is draining the battery - pull fuses to find the culprit. If the drain shows ZERO amps then it's possible the battery is tired and needs to be replaced. Motorcycle batteries don't usually last more than a few years.

I hope this helped. Sorry for any typos.

Amana front load washer error code "nd". Door is


Hello there and welcome to fixya
From what you're describing it sounds like the drain pump is blocked. The nd error code indicates "no drain". If the unit can't drain it won't spin. You're going to have to slide the washer out far enough to remove the rear panel; be careful not to damage the floor. Once you get the rear panel off you will see the pump. Be sure to have plenty of towels & a small container to catch water. I am sending you instructions from the service manual to remove and replace the pump. Another possibility is the drain line is blocked or something is stuck in the tub to pump hose.

Power drain new battery,alternater (10 months ago)Replaced starter a week ago. New 40 and30 amp fuses,also relays and block breakers under hood. cables clean and good Wiring checked, no short found....


if the battery is being drained there is something causing it to happen, check that all the lights are off glove box, trunk, you may have to get someone to get in the trunk & close it to see if the light goes out, when it is dark lift the hood & move the wiring everywhere you can to see if there are any sparks that might indicate a bare wire touching something.....hope this helps......cheers.

I have a portable air conditioner model LP0711WNR. My issue is when I drain the air conditioner, it only drains about one cup of water. Then, when I turn it back on it and use it, after about an hour it...


The easiest way, is to tilt it over slightly when you drain it. But, be very careful doing this, as the unit has caster wheels and you don't want it to get away from you. If you have a helper, so much the better. Remember to always turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before draining the water from the tank.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have the exact same problem don't call sony it won't work they will give you a bunch of automation messages (I know iv'e tried) try calling sony later when they have the psn fully back up, also try all your email accounts (assuming you have more than 1) if u can't remember one try asking your friend or something they might know since they probably have you on contacts. The final reason is make a new account and restart everything (not reccomended)
