Question about Frigidaire GLTR1670A Front Load Washer
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
