Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
Regardless of the cycle, whether it is a reg wash cycle or spin, my washer will not work. When you push start, you hear an initial click which I'm thinking is the door locking. This is followed by a hum. Hum isn't particularly loud and will sustain itself until I hit "pause". Then nothing else happens. I took of the front panel and the noise doesn't seem to be coming from the motor. In fact, it seems to be coming from the uppper part of the machine.
Any ideas? Thank you in advance.
Sounds like a water valve solenoid. The hot and cold water is controlled by solenoids that open and close. Try running just the hot and just the cold. If one or the other works, then the proble,m is a bad solenoid valve

Hello rylee1966 - From what you are describing, it sounds like the washer agitates, but it will not enter a high speed spin. If that is correct, more than likely there is a door switch failure. I will personally recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately and to assist with the repair(s).

Hello Laura Clark - 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. If it does not, the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with the pump, door lock assembly or timer. Since it is such a complex unit, I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately

Hello Dorothy - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have either the pump or timer diagnose.
