Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
No spin cycle.
I had the same problem with my washer. Frigidaire model GLTF2940ES1. It's a front load. Now I'm not the type to stare at it and then call the repair man, I hate spending more money on something when it already costs an arm and a leg just to buy one. So I started digging around, I pulled the thing apart and looked at this and that. It would go through the cycles just fine, except it wouldn't do the fast spin. So, while pulling panels off, I noticed an envelope taped to the inside of the washer. It was the "Washer Tech Data Sheet" and in it, it will tell you how to get the error code from your washer and then basically tell you whats wrong with it. On models with an LCD display, you push any button to "wake" your machine up,then you push START and PAUSE/CANCEL simultaneously, and after a few seconds an error code will display. Mine was E47. With E47, your board thinks the door PTC circuit is open during spin. It then says to Remove door lock assembly and measure the resistance of the PTO. This I don't know how to do, and I don't know (yet) what PTO stands for. But, this all boils down to your door lock assembly. For the "corrections" part it says to do the following...first, replace the door lock assembly, you can do this yourself, but you have to take off the top panel of the washer. Then, look down and you can see it, it has 3 wires, disconnect them and pull it out. Buy a new one, and put it in. really easy. BUT, if this doesn't fix your problem them chances are its a defective control board. And that, I don't know how to fix. (yet).
