Washer does not always enter a high speed spin

Frigidaire Front Load Washer Model GLTF2940FS1 does not always enter a high speed spin. Unit was replaced once for this same problem and replacement unit has occasional occurrence of same problem. Tech has "thrown" various parts at it but nothing has worked. They finally told me it was the way we use it, that if you select "Press Saver" it will not enter a high speed spin. I guess this makes sense but still the clothes should not be sopping wet. Also the problem still occurs even in cycles that do not have the press saver option, such as the "Heavy" setting. Also, "Rinse and Spin" does not always extract the water. The clothes just tumble back and forth for 10-12 minutes then machine shuts off.

Kenmore front load washer model 41744052400 will not enter into high speed spin at end of cycle. I can run the test for the different cycles and can get the high speed spin, but only in the test mode. ...

Try to get the repair manual for your machine, it's worth the cost. Meanwhile, with the power unplugged, undo any wire connectors that just plug in and check for corrosion. Check the capacitor, a dent will ruin it.

Frigidaire Frontload Washing machine Model GLTF2940FS1 will not spin out the water all the way and the clothes remain soaked with water. The drum does a few rotations in both directions but then shuts off...

Good Morning Lydia,

Based on what you have described and since you have already replaced the pump and checked for any possible kinks, at this time I would recommend reaching out to a professional to proceed further. The washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, a diagnoses is highly recommended.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you in some small way!

My fridaire front load washer will not spin at high speed

HI. Your unit is equipped with a Motor Speed Control Board. This board regulates the spin speed, with the help of a tachometer, which, is located and mounted on the motor. When this Control board is experiencing issues, the spin will not preform at optimal performance. I recommend to replace this Motor Control Board asap. Once replaced, the unit will spin properly.
