Question about Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My frigidaire front load washer starts...then quits...

I start a load of wash..it fills and the dial will advance, but then it quits, usually about half way through the cycle. Sometimes it doesn't even make it half way. The power light stays on, but the dial won't advance. The washer was doing the same thing about a year ago (when we had only owned it for a few months and it was still under warranty) and the repairman replaced the timer. Now it is doing the same thing...of course now I believe it is out of warranty. Could this be the timer again...and if so, what would cause it to fail again so soon? If you do think it is the timer, is this something we could replace ourselves? (We have the old part with the box and part number) Any help will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!

    We checked the filters on the hoses in the back of the washer...we also took the pump off to see if those hoses were plugged. We did a load this morning and the dial only advanced 2 clicks. If we put our ear up to the dial, we could hear a fast ticking sound but it wouldn't advance any further. We manually advanced the dial throughout the rest of the cycle.

    I have had the same problem. My timer was replaced under warranty 2 times then once by me. The problem seems to be the small drive motor in the timer can't turn the the complex plastic timing wheels. I wish I could find a source that would provide replacement motors instead of $125 timers. Anyone know of such a source?

    I bought the Frigidaire LTF530FS model in May of '07. The exact same problem would occur where the timer would stop and not finish the cycle. I had the Timer replaced in August of '07 under warranty, but the same problem has started again and of course it's no longer under warranty. If I stand there and turn the Timer through the cycle, the washer still functions. I noticed that a pump problem was mentioned. My drain pipe is almost near the basement ceiling so it's pretty high. If I raised the machine could this solve my problem?

    1) My washer won't wash on the cold setting. Also, it wont complete a wash, it stops at the rinse cycle because the cold water is not working. The hot water works fine. Doesn't dispense the bleach or fabric softener either. 


    I've checked the hoses, the water inlet screens on the back of the machine. Everything is fine. 


    2) The timer stops before the rinse cycle. I can advance it manually but it doesn't rinse because there is no cold water. 


    ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Yes it could be but also it could more than likely be your pump not letting water out or not letting enough water out which stops the cycle try doing aload when it stops turn dial to empty and if it spins then your pump is faulty needs replcing thats the more common fault

My frigidaire front load washer will start a wash, complete the first cycle but then stop and flash all the lights and beep continously until I press "start" or "cancel". If I press "start" again it just...


Hello there:
If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter

My front load washer does not seem to fill enough


At least on our GE front loader it is ok. That's why they are so easy on water.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Frigidaire FTF530F won't advance


Possibly the timer. next time it wont stop filling turn off the washer. if it still fills you have a water valve issue. Hope for the valve. Timers are big bucks.

Doesnot stop filling water


To javed_iqb904, does the drum actually fill or does it seem like that water is draining out as it's filling?


To neonllama19, if it fills with the tap on and the machine off, it sounds like a defective water valve. If it never stopped filling it sounds like a defective pressure switch or hose to the pressure switch is loose or diconnected.
