Water comes into the machine when it is off and if we leave the door open it overflows. We have tried shutting the water valve off but still have water coming in.

SOURCE: front load washer frigidaire leaving small marks on clothes

I have twice taken apart this front loader Frigidaire washer (also sold as Kenmore) to replace the rotted out aluminum spider arm supporting the spin-basket (which seems to universally fall apart within 5 years), and now I started observing the described black stain pattern on the clothes. As with the spider arm breakdown, this problem has nothing to do with water hardness, softeners, detergents, or dryers (I line-dry all my clothes), and everything to do with the poor quality design of this machine. I have not yet positively identified the cause of the black stains, but I suspect that the bearing seal is breaking down and in the process is releasing greasy particles that mix with the clothes and create the described black stain patterns. Unfortunately the repair would cost more than a new machine for most people, as the spider arm is probably just about gone by this stage. I am lucky to own another junk washer for spare parts and am able to fix it myself. For skilled do-it-yourself mechanics, it is possible to find a replacement seal and bearings on the internet, assuming the spider arm is new (over $200 part), or still in good shape.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore front

The water solenoid could be defective. A solenoid is an electrical switch that pulls a shaft out of the water line to let the water flow in. The timer controls this along with water level sensors. That solenoid is a big electric magnet that operates when the power is applied to the electric coil and it snaps the shaft out of the water line allowing water to flow. It also compresses a spring around the shaft and when the power is removed from the coil, the spring snaps the shaft(valve) back into the seat of the water line. If the spring is weak or broken or blocked by debris from hard water, it does not close all the way and allows water to leak. Very similar to a leaky faucet.i expect that the solenoid will have to be replaced.

Frigidaire front load washer FTF2140 upon start it began filling and then turn off, did this everytime. Unplugged it and the same thing happened. Now the lights stopped coming on and it does not work.


Good Morning Heather,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF2140, begins to fill and then turns off. You unplugged it, trying to reset it, and now the lights are not coming on and your washer is not working. Since you have already reset your washer, by unplugging it, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what the cause of your washer not working is. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

What could be causing my washer to fill with water when off and not in use?


Either you have a short somewhere or a ghost messing with you. I'd call the repair man before the priest.

Frigidaire Affinity washer not dispensing soap


Does water come into the soap slot; if it doesn't the small hose connecting to it has disconnected. To access this you must open up the top of the machine to locate, connect. Another aspect could be the soap slot could be blocked with old soap, and water could be overflowing into adjoining slots. Try to gently remove the push tray to clean out.

Frigidaire gallery front load washer dripping sound


With any front load machine manufacturers suggest to leave the door open after cycles to help evaporate the water - this is even done in top loading machines nowadays. Also clean the unit with bleach water and rinse in high temp water cycles.

FTF530FS Front Load washing machine. Clothes smell.


all front load washers have the problem. Mold and a build up or dirt and soap and fabric softner cause s old musty smell. The low water use makes the machine dirty and build up inside. Run a few Hot water washes with out clothing, Run it empty ,(run your hot water neer your washer to get the cold water out of the house pipes) hot water and pour bleach in side, 2 or more cups. Keep doing it. When your not using washer leave the door open so air can get inside. Hot wash,es with bleach will keep it clean, also dont use fab softner.

Frigidaire FTF2140ES0 Front Loader


Do you leave the door open between washes? If not, the innards will stay damp, and you'll get mold.

Pretty much all front-loaders have this problem...
