Question about Frigidaire FTF2140E King-Size ENERGY STAR

1 Answer

My 13 year old step-daughter tried to add something to my Frigidaire FTF2140E Washing Machine while it was in the middle of running a load. It will now not start back up. I took the wet load out and remove as much water as possible. It still does not start back up. The green lights will come on but when I hit start it just blinks/beeps two or three times but does nothing else. I have also unplugged the machine for several hours and retried it later with same response. Any ideas?

It sounds like the door latch is not working correctly. As a safety feature the unit will not run without sensing the latch is locked. Check the male end on the door first. If that is not broken then you will need a new door latch assembly.

Ftf2140es3 won't completely drain or do final spin.

I have one that does the same thing at times. remove the bottom front panel. You will see a black boot that comes down from the tub. Loosen the clamp on top of the boot. You should be able to pinch the boot and feel something hard inside the boot. Pull the boot down from the tub and put your fingers down inside the boot and pull up the coin collector. It may be full of junk, coins ect. Clean it and replace the boot and clamp. This should help you.

LG stinks too

It is not a poor design its the way we have gone re washing clothes

Old machines washed hotter and with more additives in the powders.

Try using a good strong mix of soda crystals in hot water , pour that into the wash before you switch it on and do a hot wash without any soap powder

Use old fasioned powders for a couple of weeks and do a hot wash once a month with the soda

The constant cool washes leave body fats from the clothing inside the machine as there is no real heat to melt them and no soda in the washing powder anymore to unstick them from the surfaces .

Clothes rough & scratchy as if dried outside in freezing temps

Having a water softening unit and keeping it working properly are two different things....when was the last time the system was regenerated? Has the hardness of the water been tested lately? Even though you have a softener, it dose sound like a hard water problem....First step would be to get the water tested not only for harness but also for mineral content. Test the water before and after regenerating the unit. Some home improvement centers have a home water test kit available that would be quicker and cheaper but not as reliable as having a lab do it. The home test kits may point you in the right direction before spending for a lab to test. Hope this helps. Let me know what you find.

Bad odor

glisten and affreash is the cleaning agents
besides this only way to get smell out is a complete inner and outter tub job but also try leaving both soap dispenser and door open for the air to dry up and vent the washing machine
