Check the water level fill sensor. Some used to be pneumatic tubes connected to a sensor. Your washer may have a different type of sensor. It seems like it fills ant gets to a point where it expects the fill sensor to trip but instead just stops. Also re check ALL connections to main drive motor. 
Also verify your mains power can handle the draw of the rated wattage. When it goes to engage the main drive motor it may not have enough current from the mains and simply stops.
Also check that the connection to the tumbler drum is not frozen.

Frigidaire front load washer FTF2140 upon start it began filling and then turn off, did this everytime. Unplugged it and the same thing happened. Now the lights stopped coming on and it does not work.


Good Morning Heather,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF2140, begins to fill and then turns off. You unplugged it, trying to reset it, and now the lights are not coming on and your washer is not working. Since you have already reset your washer, by unplugging it, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what the cause of your washer not working is. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire washer (model number GLTF2940E) starts when you push the Start button. Water starts to fill in but then stops after 15 seconds. Please adivce.


If it starts to agitate after water stops filling check the pressure switch and hose. If it doesn't agitate check the supply hoses behind the machine make sure they are not kinked. If they look ok turn off supply valves and remove hoses from washer. They are connected to the watervalve. The valve has screens to catch lyme deposits and other debris. Use a toothbrush or spray bottle to flush debris clear. Reattach hoses carefully. Hand tight only and then a 1/4 turn more with pliers. Do not overtighten. Do not use teflon tape. Do not crossthread the connection. Turn supply valves back on to test. If problem persists watervalves may need replaced.

I have a frigidaire front load washer. When I start a new load it starts with a couple of seconds of water then stops. Does not go into a wash mode, the timer shows it's going thru the cycles but


Hello - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. Washer could be experiencing a communication error from the main control board, faulty door lock assembly or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. You can also press and hold the start/pause and cancel button together at the same time for approximately 30 seconds to display an error code on the LED. What error code does it display? However, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the washer.

Frigidaire washer starts to fill with water then stops


That is not the solution.

Start the machine and immediatly press the "Start" and "Pause/cancel" button at the same time. Then you will get and ERROR code. Look on the cheat sheet packed with the machine to find out what is really wrong. That will give you the real answer.

Frigidaire (LTF2940E) Washer starts, stops, starts, stops...


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Doesnot stop filling water


To javed_iqb904, does the drum actually fill or does it seem like that water is draining out as it's filling?


To neonllama19, if it fills with the tap on and the machine off, it sounds like a defective water valve. If it never stopped filling it sounds like a defective pressure switch or hose to the pressure switch is loose or diconnected.
