Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...

I have a GLTF2940ES3 front loader. It is a bit over a year old. Today we went to take the clothes out and they were soaked. We tried running drain/spin, rinse/spin...nothing. It does everything except the high speed spin. Water drains fine..."whirring" noise when it should be spinning....we tried lessening the load too, and nothing. Please help!?!?!?

    My frigidaire front load washer GLTF2940ES3 doesn't spin in high speed. It goes through the tumble action but no high speed spin. It is exactly 1 1/2 years old. the pump pumps out water though. I put the machine on drain/spin setting wich is about 13 minutes. It seems to count down to 9 minutes remaining rather fast, while draining/pumping only. At 9 min remaining, it then begins to rotate back and forth about 6 times (i think to balance the load). At 7 minutes remaining it just beeps once and shuts off. I never get the high speed spin. On the other cycles, everything seems to work but the high speed spin cycle. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance

    WASHER WILL NOT SPIN. DOES EVERYTHING ELSE BUT SPIN. REPAIR MAN SAYS ITS THE CONTROL BOARD. BEEN WAITING 2 1/2 MONTHS FOR MY PART. ANY OTHER THOUGHTS. HELP JAZZIE

  • dachshundluv Aug 16, 2008

    My Frigidaire front loader stopped spinning 2 months ago. Repair tech replaced PCB main and motor control...no luck. Then he replaced the motor..no luck. Next he thinks that the PCB was bad and ordered another one. Finally, Lowes called me with good and bad news. The good news is that they are refunding me the purchase price + tax. The bad news it is on a Lowes gift card. I truly hate this machine. The clothes were always smelly and I had to manually siphon water out of the door gasket. Is there anything else I can do, other than advise others not to buy this model ?

    I just bought my washing machine and it wont spin. I have not used it even once. This is very frustrating. All of my clothes were soaking wet. I tried varied load sizes with no success. I also tried the spin only cycle and the drum just rolled back and forth and shut off after two minutes.

    my frigadaire front loader will not go into a spin. I thought it was the pump but now not sure.

  • blackolds98 Jan 16, 2009

    It was the door switch. I didn't have the warranty, but it turned out this was a very common problem and was considered a warranty / recall. After the switch was installed, we have had no other problems. BTW, only licensed Frigidaire repair tech's can work on Frigidaire machines. My same day service guy could not.

    My machine gets down to 11 minutes remaining and then stops, it will not spin, leaving the clothes soaking wet. It has a manufactuer date of 06/06, and stopped working around 04/09. It is used heavily , about 4 washes per day.

I wonder if your machine is housed in a basement environment. We have found that the timer to allow it to rotate to other parts in the cycle swells with the humidity and the machine won't advance through cycles. Our machine too is a year and a half old, has very little use on it since it is a part time home . We removed the timer, the gear shrunk back so it turns again, but this will obviously be temporary if the basement humidity stays high.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Sounds like you need a technician to diagnose the timer of the unit. Also the sensor that communicates to the timer.

I believe E47 is a door lock code.
You probably just need to replace the door latch.
Common problem with those units.

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...


The problem is a faulty Door Latch Assembly. The same thing happened to my Frigidaire front load washer. The part is easy to install, costs about 60 dollars and can be picked up at most appliance repair stores . To access the switch just remove the wire around the front drum gasket, peel back the rubber gasket beside the switch assembly then remove the two screws holding it in place. remove the three wire connector blocks and swap in the new switch. My washer was giving me error code 41 witch is a faulty control board. But the problem was in fact only the switch...

My washer wont spin


Frigidaire front loader model # GLTF2940ES3.

Cycle ended prior to spin segment. Checked error code history to find E47 fault. Troubleshot per manual. Found that the "PTC one-spot check" read ~1582ohms. Although the book indicates that this is sufficient and recommends (rather tells) you to replace the control board we were still skeptical seeing as this is a ONE POINT check on a device that is non-linear. We went with the lesser of two evils. Purchased and replaced a new door lock. Works again! Phew, that could have been costly.
