The drain hose might be too low. Make sure the drain hose is at least three feet above the floor.

    Concerning the improper spinning, this could be an issue concerning the motor control board. if the improper spinning continues, replace the motor control board.

Lights come on, door is closed, light load, but door will not lock so machine can begin filling with water. LFT7000ESO MODEL.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire washer, model# LFT7000ES0, and the door will not lock and begin filling with water. The model number you have provided, comes up as an invalid number. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. If you do need more assistance, I will please ask for the model number of your washer. Typically you should be able to find this located inside your appliance around the edges where the door meets your washer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Front load frigidaire washer wont do anything but fill with water and drain and the door wont lock

Hello Cheryl Watson - Not quite sure I understand the issue. If the unit is filling with water and draining immediately, with no tub rotation or movement, more than likely there is a failure with the motor circuit (i.e. the motor, motor control board, belt, wiring or door switch). Consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis and to assist with the repairs.

My frigidaire affinity front load washer ATF6000FS1 wont fill with water

Hello hitman43 - Are the house valves turn on fully? Most common cause is a faulty switch that doesn't allow the value inside turn or a kinked fill hose. Other possibilities can be water valve faults, faulty control board, pressure switch or wiring failure. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Turn off the water at the Fill vale if it now does not fill fit a new Solonoid valve to the fill on the machine...if it still fills with the water turned off then the problem is with the drain Too Low allowing water from the sink to enter machine.....

Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Isn't Filling Properly.

How old is this washer? You maybe looking at a defective fill valve (where the hoses on the back connect to), or an obstruction in the pressure hose that leads from the Load Size selector to the fill valve. Also, unplug the unit and check the electric connections on the valve as well as the Load Size selector.
