Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
My Frigidaire Front Loader is really driving my poor Hubby crazy! At first it started out ineffectively spinning... Draining seemed okay but not as effective. Now it does not seem to drain at all, but it makes the draining noises!?!? The belt is tight and there was a small amount of water under the tub when my husband opened the back to explore. Our 5 children are running out of clean clothes! HELP!!
There are two possible causes here. One is that the pump is either defective or clogged. The other is that the spin control board is defective. If the pump has a multi-fan wheel on the front of it, see if it is spinning during the drain mode. If it does not, it could be clogged. Remove hose and you will most likely find something in the housing. (rubber backing from a bath mat, bra underwire etc.) Once you get the pump functional and the unit still does not spin, go to the spin control board.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello - First, does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. Also try to rotate the drum manually (when it is not in use) and see if you notice a bumping sound as well. If you do, then the drum is not balanced and probably the bearing and pulley system behind the drum will need repairing. You may need to reset the unit at the household circuit breaker for a few minutes to create a hard reset within the unit. Then retry. If it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately. Washer may be experiencing an issue with a faulty door lock, timer, pump or control board not communicating correctly.
