Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you've described,...you 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

    Not sure what happened, but this is the remainder of my post...



    You should be able to purchase one at most local brick & mortar stores or on-line part's depot's such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclininc.com" to name a couple. They usually sell for about $50 or so, part # 1531974 ( # at repairclinic.com ) and are relatively easy to replace. It should resemble the image here...







    As for replacing said switch, There are a couple ways to access it, through the top and squeezing your arm down the front or the way I prefer, remove the front bellows spring/retainer.

    1) **unplug the washer from the wall...safety first of course.**

    2) Reomve the spring, get it started where the spring is located with a small screwdriver. Once you`ve got the spring/retainer off ( it comes off and on pretty easy by hand ) pull the gasket/bellows back away from the cabinet.

    3) Undo the two screws holding the switch to the cabinet, pull the switch out ( there is just enough slack in the wires so don`t pull too hard ) and swap the wires from the old assembly to the new one and you`re in business.

    4) To put it back together, just reverse the removal procedure. The trickiest part is the retainer. Rap the retainer around the boot leaving the spring for the last...and make sure the spring is located at the 6 o`clock position...usually. Just wherever it was initially.

    Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if my instructions are not clear.

    P.S.
    There is a slim chance of a faulty motor or motor control board, but that would not be where I would direct you to start...those are exceptions rather than the rule.


    Thank you for visiting "fixya" today.

    Good luck.

I have an Affinity washing machine that shows an E23 error code.


Hello Robert Reische, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your Frigidaire washer is showing an "E23" error code. Based off the information I show "E23" stands for drain pump relay on board failed or wire off the pump. Which means you could have an issue within the main control board or wiring to pump. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend having a technician come out to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. Hopefully this helps. -Matt

Hello - Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned, or you have another issue with the door lock assembly or the timer and control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

My frigidaire washer FTF2140ES0 won't spin on the spin cycle


Hi there, the same thing is happening with our washer. Did you find a solution to the problem? We found a coin the the black tube, but it still doesn't do the final spin. I can hear the motor trying to do something, but it just won't do the final spin. If anyone has any idea or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, I have a load of slopping wet laundry to deal with. :(

ATF6000ES front load washer won't spin during regular cycle.


clogged filter will cause this error code. I have the same washer and the filter located inside the rubber boot attached to the pump was full of junk. there was enough room for water to get thru but not enough for full volume. clean it out and it should work. note : its a pain to get the boot back on so be ready and take it slow. this worked for me.
