It is best to finalise what clothes you want to wash, regarding front loaders. Or if you stop the machine, you have to wait for a couple of minutes for the door mechanism to release the lock, before u try the door. At times the door won't open for there is water in there; & if you force the door you'll damage the door assembly. So a lot of caution here!

One piece agitator wraps cloths


When loading the machine, load towels, sheets or jeans with an accordion fold instead of putting the laundry in a circle around the agitator. It helps to put the clothes in at the twelve o'clock position, then six o'clock, then nine o'clock and then three o'clock. Repeat this sequence until the washer is full.
The laundry can circulate much better and get cleaner too.

I have aa frigidaire front load washer model LTF2940FE1. We put a pretty big load of towels in this morning. halfway through the cycle the machune made a couple of loud noises, like it was shaking, and...


Never put a large load of anything in, they're quite frankly not designed to work like that for a number of reasons. If the drum is full then water can't circulate properly and your clothes won't get washed as well as they could do.

The machine shut down to prevent damage to itself, try turning it off at the mains for 30 mins, turning it back on and then putting half the load in. This should reset it and stop the shaking.

Is there a way of adding more water to every wash as all my clothes especially my towels are very stiff when they dry. I am now adding by hand another 8-10 ltrs to every cycle and the problem is solved,...


ok first things first do not add water to the machine this will screw up its timing and pressure switch settings, there is only one reason your clothes are hard and its because you are using to much detergent, do not listen to the directions on the back of the packet its a load of **** its nothing but a marketing ploy to make u use more therefor buy more, with modern front load washers they make them extremely water efficent meaning less water which in turn means you need less detergent, all you need in a front load washer is about 15mg so a small heap roughly the size of a 20 cent piece NO MORE, i am a qualified appliance repairer and the amount of issues caused by the amount of detergant is ridiculous. If you dont believe me (most people dont until shown) try this experiment get your hard dry towels and put them in the washer with no detergent and watch the amount of foam and bubbles you get, ive actually been able to get 3 loads of washing done using one hard dry towel in with it cos the customer put so much detergent in with the towels, hope this helps

Forgot to remove shippping bolts before using machine.


I would take out the shipping bolts and then run a prgram such as Spin.with no clothes in

If that sounds ok, wet a few towels and spin them dry

If that works put a full load in and go for it

Unless your machine was way out of balance you should not really have damaged anything.

The transit bolts are there to stop the drum from banging around during transit and unless they have torn free or have bent you should be ok

Beach towels sopping wet after machine done spinning


The washer will not proceed into high speed spin with just two large beach towels in the basket. The washer is detecting a out of balance condition, and remains in low speed spin. Solution? Try adding more items into the basket. With only two towels, there is not enough mass to balance the washer. With more clothing or towels, there is more items for the machine to balance, and reach full speed spin.

The only other thing that could cause this, would be if the water in the tub is not completely draining in the time allowed. This washe does not have a cleanout, and checking for an obtruction in the pump is difficult. I would go with the more clothes first, then see.

Whirlpool Calypso


This could be an out of balance condition. When its happened to my washer, I rearrange the load if its large enough, and if its not, I find other items of like weight and add them to the load and start over. Calypso's are sensitive to fabric weight, so If you're washing towels, wash only towels and wash cloths. Make sure you put small items, like bras, panties, nighties, etc., in mesh bags and combine them with other light weight fabrics.
