Question about Frigidaire GLTR1670A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Top load water filling

My FTF2140ESO front load washing machine is hesistating in starting by starting than stoping. There is a good time of waiting between the hesitation. However, it stops completely from working. It used after few tries to work but it leaves water in the bottom of the tub.The drain hose I took it out to just find a lot of wet lint and other that is clogging the drain. When I started again it started to hesistate again. I dont know if I solve the drainage problem after I took out the wet lint from the hose.

While i am by no means a washing machine expert i can tell you with some degree of certainty that you have one of two problems, if not both...

You washing machines pump is clogged up and since the motor doesnt start pumping the control system stops...

You can either tilt the machine on its side ( make sure it is empty and unplugged from the mains ).

The pump can be identified by following the outlet hose into the machine...

Make a note of which wires go where, unscrew any screws holding it in place, gently disconnect the wires, unclamp the pipes on it.

You may want to do this outside as there is probably still some water in the machine that will run out...

Clean it out as good as you can, make sure the outlet hose is clean and unblocked as well.

Refit and it was fitted, give it a go...

If this does not solve your problem the pump / electronics may be burnt out...

New pump : anything from the equivalent of US $ 10 to US $ 50
Electronics : As good as anyones guess

Just bought a front load whirlpool wash machine. when i turn it on it locks door then unlocks door, it does this 2 to 3 times then the washer fills with some water only spins about 3 times then it waits...


This washer will stop and start a number of times during fill as it is sensing how much water it needs. Also you must hook both water line up and have both on. Also you must use HE soap and very little of it.

There is still water in my washing machine drum when it is done


Is your drain hose to far down the drain pipe?
Sometimes the water can cyphon back down into the machine if this is the case.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!
