Frigidaire Gallery Front Loader doesn't spin

My 7-year-old machine "finished" a cycle - dial was at end, lights out and latch released, but clothes were wet and soapy. The timer had apperently kept running during the rinse stage, but the drum did not spin and the water did not drain.

Emptied the tank, siphoned off the water. Fill works ok, but machine does not spin or drain.

I called the support number attached to the machine (866 203 1839) and got a redirect to an Electrolux service maze.

Located a local service provider on the Electrolux support tree and he diagnoses bad water pump. He replaces pump, fills the tank, runs it through a spin cycle and pronounces it fixed.

I was one load successfully. Second load "finishes" with dial at end of cycle, tank full of soapy water. Machine does not spin.

Re: Frigidaire Gallery Front Loader doesn't spin

The washer bears a plate with a toll-free number leading to a phone maze for support. I ultimately reached a list of local (within my state and metropolitan area) service providers. I called the nearest one and a serviceman came to my home within a few days.

I asked what could cause the failure and the repairman told me that a coin could enter the waste stream and block the pump, causing it to overheat. The failed pump turned out to have a nickel inside.

The repairman quoted me prices for brand new and slightly used water pumps. I elected to go with a used pump, but was a bit disappointed that the repairman did not have a replacement pump with him. After a few more days waiting, my washer was back on-line. Unfortunately, the replacement pump failed two cycles after installation. By then I had read about the involvement of the controller board in some cases of water pump failure.

I spent a few anxious days of phone tag and missed appointments (indicative of a low- to moderately-skilled operator) before having to threaten the operator with reversal of the credit card charges. The repairman returned promptly with a new pump and installed it with no additional charges.

My washer has been satisfactorily functioning since (about a month). I would rate this operator (Check Appliances of Los Angeles) as satisfactory regarding demonstrated technical skill and knowledge, but needing to improve in customer service.

The CCU board is likely at fault see one of my discussions on this here
these boards have intermittent failures that will drive you wacky.

Washer will not spin The washer is a frigidaire front loader model LTF2140E53. will cycle through all settings, but will not spin. Cycle ends with clothes soaked.

I have thata probelm a lot too. I have read that the controls don't sense that the door fully shut. You might try slamming it shut, jiggling the door, poking in the hole where the latch goes. When mine won;t spin, slamming and jiggling works.

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...

The problem is a faulty Door Latch Assembly. The same thing happened to my Frigidaire front load washer. The part is easy to install, costs about 60 dollars and can be picked up at most appliance repair stores . To access the switch just remove the wire around the front drum gasket, peel back the rubber gasket beside the switch assembly then remove the two screws holding it in place. remove the three wire connector blocks and swap in the new switch. My washer was giving me error code 41 witch is a faulty control board. But the problem was in fact only the switch...
