Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Frididaire, front load washer, Model GLTF2940ESO, and it was banging and vibrating so badly, we investigated your site and learned about the shock absorbers solution. That helped tremendously. We releveled the washer in all directions, we have vibration pads on the feet already too. However, now the washer will jump a little and move when I do heavier loads that may be somewhat mixed in content, like jeans with t-shirts. Is there a repair manual available for this machine that can show us where the parts are that relate to stabilizing the machine, like springs or something in the section above the tub? Also, everything I read says to stop the washer and rebalance the load if it gets out of balance, well, I don't know about everyone else, but my washer's door locks unless you totally turn off the machine, and let is sit for a while. Then, you have to completely restart the load again. Can anyone help with these issues? THanks,

Check the counter-balance weight located on the front of the tub just inside the door you will need to remove the top cover to access it also,these are fluid filled with a calcium chloride solution to dampen vibrations and do wear out or lose fluid
