Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Frigidaire GLTF2940ES1. First I got an error code DO and there was water in the tub. I always keep the door open. Door was locked and would not close. Finally got the door to close and put it on drain and water went out. Then a few days later, water was filled part way in the tub again. No error codes. Did a load of wash. What could be causing water to fill without me physically closing the door and turning on the washer?

SOURCE: kenmore washing machine 80 series

check for kinks in the pipe or restrictions to the flow in the pipes before it gets to the washer, if all is ok then check the filter on the outside of the water connector on the machine for dirt

if you confirm all is clear and the flow of water is not the problem before the machine, replace the cold water solenoid

SOURCE: frigidaire front load washer won't spin, belt looks good, makes noise

Don't have much experience on Frigidaire. Is the motor a brush type, capacitor type or one of those new DC types? If it's got brushes and they are ok, then I would say your armature is up the creek. If it's a capacitor type (unlikely) then the capacitor is most likely duff. If it's the new DC type it could be a lot of things, most likely the module which breaksdown and passes an AC component in the motor supply which make the motor tremble but not rotate

SOURCE: When tub filling, it drains out at the same time.

The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the water level inside the tub--normally the pump inside removes the water when needed. Get a plumber to install a proper height drain pipe for you.

SOURCE: Leaks while tub is filling.

could be any number of things: water inlet to tub leaking and running down outside tub,tub seal on top of transmission,pump leaking,bad hose washer remove top and front cover,then plug-in and let it start to fill you should be able to see your leak easier that way be careful when plugged-in

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Frigidaire

Hi, if your washer is overfilling/overflows the tub, check these:

  • Water-inlet valve
  • Water-level switch

Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Washer didnt drain all the way and now i keep gettin a code. n the light for the door lock wont come on


If water is in tub and the control tries to drain tub but water doesn't drain, then the unit will not operate. Most LG have a drain pump clean out located behind the access door on lower side of washer. Open the door and you will see a black tube with a cap and a round knob. First, get a bucket, pull the black tube slightly out and remove cap. The water in the tub will start to drain and you may have to fill bucket many times to get all water out. Next, unscrew knob and a little screen will pull out. Inspect this screen and inside of pump chamber. Your looking for any thing that could block the pump. If pump hums and still doesn't drain, the drain pump is more than likely bad. Good Luck

Front load frigidaire gallery series gltf2940fe1 error code e41. Everything light up but door will not lock to start cycle.


The E41 error means exactly what you experienced. The door isn't locking (or the computer doesn't get the door locked message). Since the door was closed, you either have a problem with the control board or the door strike plate and door lock switch. Take off the J2 plug from the control board and check for continuity between the black wire and ground. If you see 120V, then replace the console control board. If the circuit gives an open, then check the strike plate. If that's bad, replace it. Otherwise replace the switch. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/parts-for-frigidaire-gltf2940fe1.html has some of the parts. The door latch is part 8 on the cabinet diagram.

Occasionally, the error is triggered by water in the drain motor You should also check the drain motor/pump for any blockages. Note: if there is water in this area, you'll need some towels to control the water.

I hope this helps.

I can't open the door as the lock symbol always there


Is there water still in the tub? If the main control thinks there's water in tub, the control will keep door locked. If there's water, you might have a possible draining issue. Either clogged drain pump or something clogging drain hose. If no water, possible door lock malfunction or pressure switch malfunction. Good luck!

Frigidaire affinity door will not lock when door is closed or register door is not closed when open


Hi,
Make sure you are allowing the washer to completely finish its cycle before opening the door. It is normal for the door to lock at the end of a cycle. The locking mechanism keeps owners from opening the door before all of the water has been drained. If the door on the washer is locked, select the "Drain" or "Spin" options on the front-load washer. This will completely drain the water from the system and unlock the door, allowing you to open it.

Spin cycle doesn't cut in


turn program knob to spin and hit start then hit cancel within 5 seconds hold down options and start/pause button this will put you in the self daignostic test
Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the
start position. The hot water solenoid will activate
and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment
Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start
position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and
cold water should enter through the bleach compartment
Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start
position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids
will activate and cold water should enter through the
softener compartment.
Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start
position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and
the loading door can be opened.When the door is
opened, the drum light should turn on.
Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start
position. The washer will fill and tumble. Once
tumbling has started, the Boost Heater (if so
equipped) will turn on.
Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start
position. The drain pump & door lock solenoid will
activate and the washer will operate in high spin.
then on the last turn it will give you the other error codes it has that code is giving usually is caused by a different code to clear the codes
.
• Turn the program knob clockwise 7 clicks from the
Start Position. The control will signal the last error
code.
• Press and hold the Options and Start/Pause
buttons for 3 seconds. The code will be cleared. you really need to clear that code first to do the test but it can be done in the daignostic test skip the rest first go straight to the 7 clicks and clear the code but dont open the door during the test otherwise it will give that code after you get it cleared go to the spin spot on the knob and keep turning clock wise to go through the test but give it at least 3 seconds for each test then it should display a different code and what ever it is email me and i can help you out at that point nick_bradford2003@yahoo.com i have alot of experence with appliances
