Front loader will not spin

Yesterday the washer Frigidaire (MOdel GLTF1670ASO) Gallery Series stopped spinning. The water will come into the tub but the tub will not spin on any wash or spin cycle. Belt is intact?

    I have the same model. Mine wouldnt spin out a small rug a few weeks ago. It has been running fine though until yesterday. Washer was running then started making a loud banging noise. To me it sounded like a broken belt. I have no idea where my manuel is so I'm not sure how to open the washer to find out if it is indeed the belt. I see 4 screws at the top of the back of the washer. not sure if the top comes off? Thanks for any assistance. Lori

    I purchased a frigidaire front loader last March. A few weeks after I purchased it I had problems with the clothes still being sopping wet. I was told I was using too much soap, (I used 1 capful of the HE type detergent, was told to use 1/2 cap. Seemed to work fine until it was exactly a yr. old. Again clothes came out sopping wet. Repairman came and said there was some coins in the drain hose and to be careful aabout emptying pockets. Now a month later its still doing the same thing. Another repair man came and said the circuit board is gone and will cost $350.00 for repair...it is now 1 month out of warranty. I am really disgusted and will never purchase a front loader again. I was complaing to my sister in law about the whole situation last evening, she lives out of state. She told me she had a whirlpool front loader that laster 3 yrs. lots of problems so she went back to the top loader. Whta is so upsetting is how I was talked into this expensive washer and now 1 yr. later its worthless. Beware!!

    Have a frigidaire front loader # gltf2940esi washer will not spin at end of cycle counts down from 11,10,9,8,7 minutes remaining and turns off with a final beeeep. According to the person I finally talked to at electrolux , it's a timer relay (cost $5.62) . According to a local repair person it's a door lock (cost $62.00). Machine is just over two years old. I have two of them and the other one just started doing the same thing on friday.... Any Suggestions?

The problem is the door latch assembly. You can get it at your local parts supplier or oder it through repairclinic.com. Should cost $50-$55. My hubby is replacing mine now. Not an easy part to replace, but by all information I have gathered from the manufacturer and the parts department, this is a common problem and most likely the cause of the machine not spinning. It runs through all the rest of the cycles, but will not spin, even on spin only cycle. The good news... if you replace the door latch assembly once, the replacement part is much stronger than the original and shouldn't have to be replaced again.

We had the same problem with it not spinnig out... We paid big bucks last year for a repair man, only for it to do it again. My husband took the front panel off the washer, disconnected the hose that goes into the pump, cleaned all the change and strange things that it had collected out, and when he hooked it back up, it worked just fine....

The repair man called me to save me a trip charge.....my washer has a welded part broken in the drum....what he referred to as a "spider". I was told to fix my washer would run around $750.00. That's just a little less than what I paid for the set! My NEW set is being delivered today! No, it's not Frigidaire...lesson learned!

Might be a burned (a few coils) motor - feel any burned paint smell?
Alternatively, a broken belt - you'd hear rthe motor spinning, though - or some sensor/wiring malfunction.

Hi
Could be a number of things. If you have checked all the connections to electric motor and found to be okay, The next thing i would check is the motor brushes. They may be worn down and need replacing.
Good luck.

Your machine will never spin if there is water in the tub. Remove the pump and clear the obstruction.
