Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Frigidaire gltf2940 will not pump water into the machine.

The water will not pump into the washer, then it will not spin and makes a strange buzzing noise as if it is trying to work. We tried replacing the door latch, but that does not seem to be helping. Does anyone know what is going on with this thing?

Hi there, here's a few check points that should help you fix this issue with the water.

• Water supply is not adequate in area. Check another faucet in the house. Wait
until water supply and pressure increase.
• Water supply faucets are not completely open. Fully open hot and cold faucets.
• Water is being used elsewhere in the house. Water pressure must be at least 30
psi (260 kPa). Avoid running water elsewhere while washer is filling.
• Water inlet hoses are kinked. Straighten hoses.

Next, here are some tips fixing the spinning issue as well.

• Washer door is not completely closed. Close door completely.
• Dispenser drawer is not completely closed. Close dispenser drawer.
• Load is too small. Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.

Thx for using fix ya.

Hi there your machine it will not spin because there is no water in the unit so that is telling you that the float switch is working but the problem appears to be in the water fill solinoid valve that is located inside the back of the unit if you can contact your local apliance dealer you should be able to get the part that u need ok and also you may want to see if there is still a warranty on the unit that would help a lot
best regards mike

Buzzing - will not spin or drain water


This noise is probably the pump trying to start but will most likely be obstructed.Drain the machine manually by lowering the drain hose into a bucket or bowl and then remove blockage.

Washer making buzzing sound during spin cycle,then stopped during wash still has water in tge clothes,buttons light up as if going to work but nothing happens jusy buzzing noise


If I understand correctly, the washer made a sound in the spin cycle but didn't actually spin the clothes dry?
If so you may have something in the pump that is not allowing it to pump out. Disassemble the pump and make sure it is clear of any debris.
