Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
Our Frigidaire GLTF2940FS1 FL Washer is a little over 1 year old - out of warranty and it recently started going bonkers. It seems that the start button activates by itself. Throughout the day and night it will automatically turn on and be ready to start with 44 minutes displayed.
When I select cancel/pause it turns off and then a few minutes later it turns back on and activates the start.
This happens when the door is left open and when it is closed.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I fixed this myself and it only took about 5 minutes. The problem is the door latch needs to be reset, which requires unplugging it's three electrical connections. This has to be done inside the washer outer seal, but it is easy to get to. First remove the outer ring that holds the seal on. Next remove only the side of the seal closest to the door latch (again only the outer seal needs to be undone). With this done remove the two screws holding the door latch in place (inside). Remove the latch, unplug the three connectors, plug them back in then reassemble everything. When all is back in place hit "cancel" and it should be good to go.

I had this EXACT problem this morning and ended up calling the Sears Home Central Team out (I have an extended maintenance agreement). This is an error code that CAN BE RESET by the end user (you and me!) and doesn't need a repairmain. Here's what you do:
PRESS AND HOLD the START and CANCEL BUTTONS.
The four lights above the START button will begin to flash.
Continuing holding the START and CANCEL button and "spin" your wash selector knob to "SPIN".
Release the START and CANCEL buttons and Press the START button.
This will RESET the error codes within the system and allow you to "cancel out" of the DELAY START.
IF the error codes are "bad ones", then the system will stay locked and you'll need to call a repairman; however, this "fix" should work for MOST of the routine system error codes.
Worked on mine and we're a happy washing family once again!!

Tips for a great answer:
I appreciate your post, friend!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer, GLTF2940FS1, stopped with 1 minute left in your cycle. This could be a potential issue with your door latch, control board, or a miscommunication within your washer. I would recommend a reset on your washer and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for at least ten minutes. If that does help correct your issue you may need to consult with a technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This may help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Thanks for your post, friend!
From my understanding your Frigidaire frontload washer, GLTF2940FS1, is displaying an "E11" error code. Typically, "E11" stands for fill time too long which means you could have an issue within your pressure sensor or control board. I would recommend a reset on your washer and that can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If that does not help correct the issue you may want to consult with a technician for proper diagnosis. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Hey friend, thanks for your inquiry!
I see that your Frigidaire washer, GLTF2940FS1, is stopping multiple times within the cycle. It sounds like a potential issue with your control panel of door latch assembly. You should perform a reset on your appliance by unplugging or flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes.
If that does not help correct the issue I would advise you to seek technical assistance from a professional for proper diagnosis and repair. This would help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt
