    Clothes dripping wet at the end of wash. Clothing (towels) have a bad smell.
    Have checked:
    1. Any lose connections
    2. Removed debris from hose.
    3. Washed with vinegar.

I had the same problem. I tried this solution and remarkably it worked for 1 load. Then same thing - no final spin. I read through all the fixya solutions and an older post mentioned the pump inlet filter being clogged. I removed the front panel (2 screws near feet and detached the large black rubber tube held on by a screw. Reaching down in there is a plastic filter about 1" x 3" long to protect the pump. Sure enough there was a quarter in there (along with hair and other junk) that was clogging the outlet. I cleaned these out and it worked fine.

I would also point out that getting the ring seal back on correctly was a pain in the **** because there is very little plastic to work with. You have to feel around the back to make sure the rubber is properly sealed.

As a word of warning, I have a shop vac so thanks for the hint to drain the inside tub before removing the seal.

So while there may be many reasons for this problem it is quick and easiest to first check the electrical plugs are connected and second the filter is clean. After that the door lock has also been proposed as a problem.

    I should also add that I originally thought is could be a relay problem
    because in the final spin you would hear a buzz and clicking sound like
    a relay was not working properly. I was really surprised to find out
    that it was just a clogged filter.

Check 5 pin cable from control board down to the speed control board (lower left rear of machine) Had the same problem as yours and found the plug was slightly off. Terrible design, plug is just pushed on contacts on the board not into a matching plug.

Will not fill spin or drain

Hello Don Perna - I understand that the washer will not spin or drain; however is it making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose or pump is clogged and needs cleaning. Try setting the washer to a spin cycle only. Will water pump out? If it does not, then the unit could possibly be experiencing a communication error with the control board, faulty pump, timer or door lock assembly. If I was in your position, I will personally contact a professional for an accurate diagnosis and to assist with the repairs. You can often locate a qualified service provider by visiting the manufacturer website.

How do I repair a GLTF2940ES0,07 that wont do a final spin dry

Hello Bruce Cubie - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. First, confirm that the door is securely latching. Second, is the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose or pump is clogged and needs cleaning. Otherwise, since the motherboard has already been replaced, it sounds like the unit could possibly be experiencing a communication error from the control board such as a wiring failure, faulty door lock assembly, pump or timer itself is not operating correctly. At this point, I would strongly recommend contacting a local professional for further diagnosis should all troubleshooting measures fail. You can often locate certified technicians by visiting the manufacturer website.

Door open error shows even when door is securly closed. Is most likely a faulty door latch and lock mechanism, or sensor. Any suggestions to repair without calling in an expensive repair person?

here is a website that has the parts break down. it should be a striker and door switch/lock that are the problem.

check to see if the door striker is ok it has two prongs on the door that go into the machine.
when the door is closed the striker goes into the switch.
hope this helps

Model fwt645rhso will agitate but won't drain out, on spin cycle washer spins one way, stops goes back the other way, but water will not drain out. Does not rapidly spin on final cycle. Any...

There's an auxiliary switch in the door lock.switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. The machine will NEVER advance to the spin cycle unless the auxiliary switch is activated as a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during a high-speed spin cycle that may result in physical injury. The drum tumbles back and forth while the machine control checks the auxiliary if activated but since it's not, the control will not command the motor speed control to spin the drum at high speed. These symptoms may indicate a faulty door lock/switch assembly and may need replacement.

My Frigidaire front load washer doesn't spin, it turns during the wash cycle, doesn't show an error code, but doesn't spin the load at all, it is model CLTF2940ES0. Is it something simplet to fix?


Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you've described, likely need a door lock/switch assembly. The closest I found to your model is actually CLTF2940ES0.

The door latch is likely the single most common fault (which prevent's any spin, and consequently drenching wet clothing at the end of the cycle) with the frigidaire/electrolux built washer's, aside from pump's being obstructed.

I think it fool's many people because the lock indicates it is energized on the panel, however the built in "monitor" switch inside the assembly fail's. I do see a lot of these particular machine's...unfortunately.

You should be able to purchase one at most local brick

Washer won't run....

It seems as an overload issue. The machine has an overload switch to protect the motor. Take the comforter out and operate the machine,it should work fine. Good luck!
