Nothing. But the wash load may need an additional rinse or two afterwards.

It take to lon to do a load what can I do or am I doing something wrong? thanks.


You must be adding an incorrect amount of soap. You must use HE soap and just a little of it at that. If you overdose the washer it will come down with a suds error and attempt to get rid of suds.

The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Washload

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

Every now and then yall need to clear out the filter of junk that gets in there.

My washer will only dislove the powder saop on warm or hot cycle and now it won't let any water in to the tub at all why


You MUST use "HE" (High Efficiency-Low Suds) type detergent--but to use the correct amount.
Nearly all brands of "HE" detergent have incorrect instructions.

The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

Where do i put the laundry detergent?


Top left is a drawer. Be sure you put it in the soap dispensing department. Put HE stuff in there. Do not put too much. The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

Any more than this and you will get errors and headaches.

My washer wont drain, says SD and blinks f-21


Sd: Suds lock. Detergent overdose. Clean out the soap dispenser. Remove the bottom panel and open the pump drain. F21: Long drain. Possible cause: Clogged filter, clogged/failed pump. Run some loads without detergent then use these amounts:
The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Washload

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

Do Frigidaire Front Load Washers require H&E detergents?


The answer is YES. Nearly all front loader washers built for consumers are rated as high efficiency because of the small amount of water and electricity they use. This small amount of water, coupled with a wash tub that does not agitate continously, followed by a high speed final spin of 1200 rpms or higher, all equate to an overall energy savings as compared to a conventional top loader. Regular detergent is formulated to be used in a wash tub with a 35 gallon capacity. So, if you use that same detergent in a wash tub that uses 5 to 7 gallons of water (such as yours), you are in effect putting about 5 times the concentration in the washer. This can lead to soap scum build up which causes odors, soap deposits that remain in your clothing and can cause skin irritation, "SUDS" errors that stop the wash program due to too much suds in the wash tub, and premature wear on the drain pump motor and seals. In fact, most front loaders will have a disclaimer added in the owner';s manual that explains this. Most manufacturers will also void the warranty if it is discovered you are using improper detergent. Use HE detergent and pay attention to the label. Some of them are double (2X) and triple (3X) concentrated. I hope this helps you.
