Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Clothes have dry spots in load

I have a front loader fridgidaire that when it washes a load will sometimes not wet down the load completely. I have had it where I can pull shirts or pants out that may have one or two spots of water on it and that is it. Never got wet even though its gone through whole wash. The washer is only 3 months old and when I first got it dont remember this being a problem.

Close your faucet valve & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. Water shd be in good pressure at faucet. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem change your inlet valve, it is easily done.

I have a Fridgidaire front loader. It completes the regular wash cycle, but clothes are soaking wet- it's not doing the final fast spin. When I select the drain/spin option, it drains and eventually...


Either an off balance load (unlikely if it happens all the time), a bad door switch, or a bad motor control board. Easiest repair is to try replacing the door switch, failing that, i'd call someone in to test the speed board.

Not enough water to wet all the clothes.


Either the water level switch has bad calibration or the water level tube has lost its air seal and needs to be refitted and air locked. If you do not know how to go about these tasks, call someone with experience. Goodluck, Macgivor

I am very unhappy with this machine and sorry I bought it! It uses so little water that sometimes when I take the clothes out after it is finished washing I can see dry spots on the clothes that never even...


How about putting the clothes in and pouring water over them with a jug before the washer starts its program ?.

It could also be that the water level switch is out of tolerance and needs replacing

Most machines have a pre-wash cycle as well

Washer is leaving dirty spots on clothes


If you use fabric softener it may be from the softener. Dilute your softener 50% before pouring it in.

Doesnt seem to be cleaning good. should i not be putting so many clothes in it? should I use more soap? I feel like the clothes barely get wet!


These washers use very little water. (about 2 inches in the bottom of the wash tub) The actual amount used will vary based on the volume of clothes and the type. (snythetic clothes do not absorb much water, but put in a load of cotton towels, for example, and the clothes absorb the water, causing the water level to drop, and the machine will add more water to return the level to the set point, which usually takes a several short fills, over a couple minutes)
To see that the clothes are indeed wet, just pause the machine a few minutes into the cycle. The door will unlock, and you can feel how wet they are. When the cycle completes, these machines spin so much faster (about twice as fast as most top loading machines) that the clothes feel very dry. (thus reduced drying time, and additional energy savings) Because of the lower water usage (about 12 gallons vs. about 45 for a top loader) make sure you only use 1 to 2 (max) tablespoons of HE detergent per cycle, and only 1 teaspoon of fabric softner if you use it. (don't use fabric softner on towels) Using too much addatives will cause odor issues, and possible performance issues.

Can I make the water level on my whirlpool duet washer higher?


its because of the design of the machine they are water efficient.a front load uses any where from 15 to 18 gals. compared to 40 to 50 gals.for a top load. they also have a higher spin rate than the top loader,therefore making your close dryer and having a less drying time in the dryer.energy efficient too!!

Frigidaire Front load washer mold


LEAVING DOOR OPEN BETWEEN USES ALLOWS WASHER TO BREATHE. BEING A CLOSED SYSTEM, IT'S KIND OF LIKE PUTTING A TUPPERWARE LID ON A BOWL WITH RESIDUE AND MOISTURE INSIDE AND LETTING IT GROW.
