Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940E Gallery 3.5 Cu. Ft. King Size Front Loading Washer

2 Answers

Clothes are dirtier after washing...

I have a frigidare Gallary Front loading washing machine...model number FWT647GHSO. We purchased it in May of 2000. I have four kids so I do A LOT of laundry. In the last few months, especially after running a load with hot water, the clothes come out ruined they are so dirty. There are some dark brown streaks all over some of the clothes and areas that look like the clothes have been washed in mud on other clothes. Some of the clothes look fine and they all smell fine. Around Christmas I ran a few loads through with simple green thinking that the I must have washed a work shirt covered in boiler grease and it seemed to fix the problem however it is back. Some of the clothes have come clean upon further washing but might have new spots on them. I am at a loss. My husband wants to look at it but I don't know what to look for. Does anyone know what is going on. This just won't cut it. I have four little kids who need clean clothes for school and such.

    Thanks we will have to try that...this is simply unacceptable. I need my washer...I am sure that little socks and **** from little kids pockets could have gotten in the machine as well. Thanks again

    Our Frigidaire front loader is maybe a couple years older, but started to have the same results of oil spots on clothes especially the whites, this weekend. Have you found a solution other than a new washer or the repairman to rebuild the current one?

Go to your local appliance store and ask for "Affresh" washer cleaner. works excellent. If hubby need to get into the machine have hime clean out the pump. You probably have **** in there thats also contributing to the problem. good luck

Sounds like a possible leaking seal on the transmission shaft.

My frigidare front loader will out of the blue start beeping like its through washing, & will not have any clothes in it.

There should still be a sticker on the door jam or the back of the machine showing the model and serial number.

Clothes are dirtier after washing...

The problem with your front load washer is a broken rear bearing. If you remove the rear panel, you will see brown "gunk" all over.
If you want to repair it on your own, order this:
Good Luck!
