Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

Where is my leak coming from?

So I posted a week ago and thought that my water leak was coming from the bottom of the front door. Now it almost seems as if the leak is coming from under the washer. Is that possible? There doesn't appear to be water leaking from the hoses on the back or the pipes on the wall. Where else could water be coming from? We're replacing our laundry room floor tomorrow due to mold and it would be nice to get this darn leak fixed ASAP. Thanks for any ideas.

    This is the third or fourth time I've had to call a repair man for this machine in three years, its made cheaply and I hate it. I would never recommend Frigidaire, my Frigidaire dishwasher is now leaking too. My Frigidaire refridgerator is so small and poorly made, hate that too.

I had a washer dryer stack set from Frigidaire and it started leaking after 3 years.It was a small amount of water at first so I thought not big deal..then it got bigger..
I had a repairman come in and the tub was cracked.. After reading alot of negative about Frigidaire on the internet I thought oh no it will be a waste of time to contact them.
I found a complaint on another site and there was a reply from Frigidaire and the gentleman wanted the consumer to contact him so he could take care of of the problem.
I contacted that email address and they were so helpful.
They offered to fix my machine for free or let me have another set like it for half price.
The repairs were going to be over $800.
I chose the second option because I was afraid the repairs might not last since the tub was cracked. I bought another set which was $1100. I got my check for $550 in the mail yesterday..
I am very grateful that they stood behind their products..
If anyone needs that email address contact me and I will send it to you...

Your machine has a bottom access panel. Remove the panel and run the unit. This will help determine where the leak is.

I have a Jenn-Air refrigerator, Model JCD2389DE, and in the last two weeks we have noticed water puddling on the floor in front of the "freezer side" door. We thought maybe the water dispenser...

Mine did this a few years ago. I had to call service out to replace the system board. I guess it's a common problem. Something on the board fails and the defrost operation does not work properly, resulting in rapid meltdown of ice build-up and puddles on the floor.

Leak around the door seal

the seal might look ok but don't forget the seal could crack on the bottom, any time the washing machine stops and the water settle
there's more water at the bottom half so the bottom of the seal takes more abuse. so I would replace the sealer and if you can buy a little thicker one.

Water leaks out front

I had exactly the same problem with my Kenmore Ultrawash. I thought the leaking might be coming from the seals around the door, but found that it was leaking from the top as described. I removed the air vent cover on the inside of the door and found that it and the vent area had a great deal of what appeared to be dissolved paper. At first I thought perhaps this was somehow remenents of some kind of air filter, but after reading the post here, came to conclude this was foreign matter. I believe what happended is we at some time washed jars or something with lables on it and this stuff accummulated inside the air vent area. I think in a normal case, when the washer is running, water is mostly stopped from going into the air vent area by the hatched cover, but inevitably some water would get thru. This would be ok normally, because the water would just hit the vent area and probably just fall back into the washer. With all the debris stuck in the vent area and on the cover, I suspect the water was not able to exit the vent area or was hitting the debris and causing the water to jet out the opening to the front - hence the water coming out the vent and pouring down the front. Once I cleaned out the vent area and the cover from the debris, I replaced the cover and ran the washer with no water leaking anymore.

I'm so glad you posted your finding - it gave something to look into, and turned out to be the same source of the problem. You saved me a service call.

Clog - water leaking out of front bottom

Remove the lower spray arms and the filter assembly beneath it. Rinse out everything you remove in the sink as needed.
With a flashlight, inspect the sump area down there and remove anything lodged in the drain area. Reassemble and run a short load, watching it closely for leaks from the front.
If problems persist, there are two possible problems:
a.) The float or float microswitch is not working properly.
b) the hot water inlet valve (selonoid valve) is opening but not always closing properly.
Post back here is you are looking for more specific guidance.

have you tried adjusting the feet on the front of the washer so it is tilted back slightly .This will stop the water from coming over the little lip on the front of the machine. Some dishwashers also use a little amount of water in the bottom when drying asthis helps to curculate the heat ; leave the washer to complete it's cycle and it should beep to let you know when it is finished

Kenmore Ultra Wash 3 Leaking

Got a possible solution from a brilliant guy named Jake on another website and thought I would post it back here.

"Check the door vent on the inner side of the door, that should just snap out, I have seen those clog and start making more pressure inside to make it leak from the bottom. Jake"

I checked mine and got a nasty surprise. Who knew it could get so dirty.
