Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
My washer is about 2 1/2 years old.
The last few loads, I noticed that the clothes are soaked. The final spin cycle does not engage. When I tried to select the drain/spin option, it drained but shut off with 7 minutes left instead of going into a final spin.
What is/are the problem(s)?
If water remains in the drum the unit will not go into the final spin.There may be a couple of reasons for your problem.
1.) A coin or other foreign object is blocking the drain hose. Check the drain hose for foreign objects impeding the exit of the water.
2.) The Drain hose is not raised above the machine outlet to create a siphon effect. See your manual for proper hose positioning.
3.) The pump is a third possibility which you should hear the impeller spinning during the drain cycle. There is a coin catch after the diaphragm of the pump that looks like a rubber boot that should be inspected for objects if you remove the pump. I believe the pump is about $60.00 and is accessible after removing the front panel under the door.

Thank you for your post, Tom Lau!
I see that you are having a difficult time with your Frigidaire washer, FAFS4474LW, taking long a time to complete a cycle and not rinsing the clothes out enough. This could be a possible problem with your sensor or control panel on your washer. You may want to perform a reset on your washer to help clear out any miscommunication within the washer. In order to perform a reset you would need to flip the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to have issues with your washer after the reset I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional. This will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

I appreciate your post, Rachel Kovach!
From my understanding your Frigidaire frontload washer is not spinning the final spinning and the clothes are still wet. If you washer is overloaded it will not spin properly to release the water out of the clothes. Also, a small load will cause your washer to not spin properly. You should additionally check the drain hose to make sure it not kinked or twisted that could cause your improper draining. If all that checks properly it could be an issue with your drain pump, motor, and control panel. I would suggest consulting with a technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help avoid unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
