I have a Front Load Washer Model # FTF2140ESO, just washing my bed sheets and we hear a large BOOM, thought someone drove through our house, our house shook so bad. Turned out to be our Frigidaire Front Load Washing Machine. I use HE soap I had the door replaced about 2 months ago cause it cracked, what could have cause it to explod?
of course this happens 2 days before christmas. by the looks of it, it don't look fixable, the door wont close wire hanging on the inside of it the frame is all bent up. We have a Police and Fire report on it in case.

Bed sheets or comforters will often get out of balance in the spin cycle or during the rinse cycle. Throw some towels in there next time at least 5 big ones. They are engineered to take a little of this banging, it should only happen once in a while.

SOURCE: Foul odor from front load washing machine

Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .

Hi, I have a frigidaire front load washer, model FTF2140ESO, that is making a high pitched screeching noise when it enters into the final spin cycle. The noise ramps up in volume as the drum spins faster....

Some times screws can work their way out near the drum and rub against the drum causing the squeak. You might have to take off the back of the washer and see if there is anything loose contacting the drum.

Washer will not spin out

There is most likely a clog in the pump filter. Check the hose between the tub and drain pump. If that isn't it check the door switch.

Cleaning the pump procedure is here:

Our LG227HW washer is showing an error code UE, what does this mean and how do we correct it

UE means an unbalance load. Either you have too small a load, too much of a load or you're washing a large bedsheet all by itself. If you are washing a large bed sheet or bed spread, you need to add about 4 bath towels in the load to help offset the balance problem. As for loads, you can only put in 15 lbs of dry weight laundry in the wash. Preferably, fill the tub with clothes half way up the window and no more.

Washer won't start, lights all work except top one, door lock. I changed the locking device but still the same. On the trouble list the next step should be to change the control board??? The model is...

The board would be the likely problem if the switch is good. To double check the switch check it for ohms, it should be around 1500 ohms no lower than 1400 if it is the switch is bad if it checks good replace the main control. Here is a link that should help
