Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Our Frididaire GLTF1240ASO washer will not spin or empty the water. We had this happen once before and a technician came in to fix it. It seemed like something simple that he said this model is known for. He found a guitar pic somewhere and said it was easy to take care of. Unfortunately my wife did not see how to do this. Any pointers?

Hi, He probaly found it in the pump. THere should be two screws holding the front panel on. Then you neeed a screwdrive to pop the top up by releasing the clips located in the crease between the top and the front panel. Once the top is raised, the front panel drops down and then you can move it out of the way. There is an electric style pump on your model sobe sure and UNPLUG the machine before you start working on it.
Remove the hoses from the pump and you might find something plugging it. If there is nothing in it, You can test to see if there is 120V going to the pump. Also check the drain hoses since you are this far.
Hope this helps you. Please let me know if you need more help.

Hi Stacey C - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. Supposing that it does not, I would suggest contacting a professional to diagnose either the pump or timer.

Hi, are you sure your pump is operating properly any little thing caught in the impeller will stop these pumps. You also say there water still in the tub it will definitely not spin fast with water in the tub. Remove the pump and inspect the impeller sometimes there are things caught in it and other times the vanes are broken right off.

My GLTF1240ASO has an amplified noise level when spinning? The Drum does have some more than normal back & forth movement as well.

That could either mean that you need new bearings or the spider arms the part that holds the washer tub are broken. It can be very expensive to repair. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to fix or replace.

From time to time the washer does not empty completely, have not been able to narrow it down to any one setting and it onloy happens once in a while. Any suggestions?

Does the washer attempt to spin? It could be that it isn't spinning leaving the clothes soaked and some water in the bottom of the tub. Might want to put it in the service mode and turn the pump on and do a spin test as well. Does this happen on heavy loads?

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63. fills with water...I dont think it is heating water...rarely rotates and spins (saw it once in early stage of J prog only) seems to fill and empty but no rotate or spin....

if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever

Machine constantly empties

It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

* The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

* The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.

* A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

* The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

* The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

Washer does not spin

I had the same problem in october- my had a bad wiring harness, some board problem, and a bad sensor. if it hadn't been under warranty the cost of parts alone would have been over 1000bucks.
