Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The water just keeps running

We have a frigidaire front loader that just keeps running the water. With the helpful advice from the forum I cleaned out the two handfuls of coins from the drain boot and examined the pump. That was fixed, but the forum also suggested the fill sensor switch. I did not find that to be disconnected and it sounded like it worked when I blew pressure into it. Does it take less pressure than I can blow? Could it be another sensor? MOMike

Re: The water just keeps running

When you blow into the tube, there should not any block, the air should pass through; then you know that the tube is okay. This should solve things....... Also note that the outlet tube is not connected to the drain at floor level; it should be at least the machine height; the machine pumps the water OVER this height. Or the water will just drain out......

I want to buy a Frigidaire Affinity washer because I found one at a good price, BUT several reviews say there is a moldy smell that is awful. Any advice?!

Leave the door open to allow the tub area to dry after use (both top and front loaders). Front loaders also have a propensity to hold a small amount of water in the rubber door seal. Wiping this up after each use will also help prevent the growth of mould.

I have a frigidaire gallery series front loader washer model gltf2940e it keeps giving error e10 what do i do

E10 means that your cold water is coming in too slow, disconnect the cold water hose and check to see if the screen on your washing machine is clogged. If the screen is clean and the hose has good pressure then you will need to replace the water valve on your machine--- this is the piece that the hoses directly connect to.

I have a bad smell and a dark gloppy stain in my washer on the plastic section of the front loading part of the washer- can i get that replaced?

Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

Door seal has mildew. Can this be replaced?

My daughter's front loader did the same thing, and she cleaned it with a bleach and water solution, then rinsed with water. we were told that you have to keep the door open to keep it from molding and mildewing.

Frigidaire FTF530F

Please go to this website and look at the sectiopn pertaining to cleaning the dispenser drawer. In all probability, the dispenser is stuck and needs to be cleaned.
I hope that solved your dispenser issue.. As for the foul smell of the washer.. Front loaders are plagued with this problem and there is no known solution however there are a few things you can do to minimize and/or prevent that foul smell for a period of time.. After the last wash load, wipe down the door gasket thoroughly, If you do not have any small childern in the house.. leave the door open to allow the inside of the washer to air dry.. You can use a product sold at Home Depot ( and other places) called AFRESH and that will help for a while.. otherwise.. Front Loaders must maintain a leaktight sela to keep water from leaking but in so doing... it is also airtight.. herein lies the problem.. any standing water left over after a washer wil get stagnant and develop mold over time.. Hope this helped...

Front loading washing machines

not really front loaders have top loaders beat all the way but stay away from admiral and maytag .a front loader will wash your clothes using the soap that your top load failed to get out if i may suggest buy a frigidaire with a mechanical timer not electronic control more junk on them more to fail the best combo in my mind is a frigidaire front loader and whirlpool dryer front loaders use 2/3 less water 2/3 less soap and will get your clothes twice as clean they have no transmissions and are direct drive the most common promblems with them is having to clean out the pumps where people leave stuff in their pockets also you need to buy soap thats for front loaders its called high effincey or he soap and they will get your clothes make sure you read the installation guide and remove ALL the shipping braces

Water filling tub on washer

First thing is to run the machine as normal. After the cycle is complete and the clothes are removed, turn the water off, hot and cold, to the machine. If on the next usage there is no water in the tub then the fault has been found. And, no, the water valves are fairly easy to access and replace if needed.

Frigidaire front loader leaking water

try turning the water supply down and recheck the form of water spray from above the soap tray(with it out and a towel there). if the jets of water are spraying everywhere it means there are semi blocked holes. either clean them out thorougly or drop the water pressure down to a fast trickle. tone.
