Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Bleach ruining clothes

Unlike most of the submissions, the problem with my frigidaire front loader is that it drops the load of bleach directly on to the clothes/towels, etc, wrecking them. I have lost countless items this way so far. There is no way this is user error, I fill the bleach resevoir to the line and I run the load. And I get great big bleach spots ruining my stuff. I called, and was told, oops, your warranty expired last month. It's obviously a defect. It should be covered under a recall. I am not impressed.

    From the dispenser there is a small hose that goes to a diffuser to distribute the bleach evenly check to see if the hose has come off follow the path of the bleach with your eyes and, see where and. how it empties into the machine

Why use bleach unless it is to whiten curtains, ACDO make a specific product for that purpose

Use a pre-wash program and the correct multi - layered tablet or old fashioned powder

Both products contain bleach and whiteners as part of their construction.

Make sure that you use the correct one for coloured items as they will remove colour

I have owned our washer for seven years Why doesn't the bleach dispenser empty?


is it a front loader or top loader? what is the model number? normally you have 3 or more water inlet valves 1 for cold water, 1 for hot water and one for either fabric softener and or bleach, id say (without any specific info) that it is simply a jammed/faulty water inlet valve, or if its a front loader you often get this problem if the water pressure isn't high enough to create the siphon in the dispenser, i dont know why they set up the softener dispenser on front loaders as a siphon when the pre and main wash just wash through normally

Bleach is eating holes in my clothes. With top loaders, the bleach is mixed in with water before clothes are added.. seems that with front loaders the bleach is just being deposited directly onto clothes?


Add your bleach with less potency but make sure you are putting it where it is suppose to go and when you are supose to add it , it makes a difference.

Clothes picking up residual dyes & bleach spots


I dont think the washing machine is designed to put bleach in??
Remember a washing machine is never really empty of water.
It holds about 1 litre of water in the tub after each cycle.
Thats the way they are designed.
The same as front loader.
I would put clothing in the tub to bleach,then rinse them in the tub with cold water ,then wash them?? cheers

Reimbursement for ruined clothes


you should never put bleach in the dispenser ,
unless it is colorfast bleach.
always add bleach diluted directly in the drum to prevent this from happening in the future.
the dispenser may never clear the bleach fully.

check is in the mail.

Smell


this is a common problem with all front loaders. you need to manually clean the boot, rubber seal, with bleach and water but when done with that you need to put 1 1/2 cups of bleach in the soap dispeners, run a hot wash with no clothes after that run another rinse to be sure all the bleach is out of washer. inbetween washes, leave washer door open (best) or cracked if no room to leave it open
