Well redistributing the load and unplugging it should hopefully reset it.

Otherwise the balance sensor is the problem which is internally in the motor tachometer, and thats whats causing it to not work.

If you have a 5 yr. warranty on your motor contact Frigidaire and ask them to send a authorized Frigidaire Lead tech. and I'm sure he will verify what I'm saying.

Please let me know if you have any more questions and I would be glad to help

Hi,

Initially, try to manually unload contents including the water. Thereafter pls try a full hard reset? IThat is unplug from the mains. Most current devices would reset and revert back to factory default settings (assuming no internal hardware fault) when unplugged for a considerable period of time (from a few minutes to a couple of hours). Of course doing a hard reset erases all glitches as well as user settings and configurations.

Pls post back for any development(s) or even the lack of it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Frigidaire FTF530ES1 front load washer that doesn't spin or agitate. The door lock light comes on and I don't think it is that. It fills with water, then you can hear the clicks for each cycl


Good Morning Vickie,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF530ES1, will not spin or agitate. I also see that the door lock light came on so you checked the door latch, due to it not unlocking right away. Now, you have removed the back panel and restarted the cycle, to find out that the motor is not coming on. There is a possibility that it could be the motor, or it could be something completely different that is causing your washer to not spin or agitate. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine why it is not spinning. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer stop spinning


Hello Kathy Murphy - Is the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose or pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Will the drum manually rotate (when it is not in use)? If it does not, then the washer drum may not be balanced and/or possibly have a broken shock. Is the door securely latching? Supposing it is not, then the door latch assembly will need replacing. However, since it is such a complex unit, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues like the timer, pump or control board not communicating correctly.

Check to see if the door sags at all and doesn't line up correctly with the door latch. Then check to see if the drum wobbles when you rotate it yourself when not in use.

All cycles are working except the spin cycle. I have visually inspected the wiring connections and motor and dont see any obvious issues. There are no error codes and the LED lights seem to be functioning...


Because of the high spin speeds of front load washers, the doors are equipped with a latch and lock mechanism to prevent the door from being opened during the washers operation. These locks will often be actuated by a solenoid or wax motor to ensure they remain latched during the wash cycle. This model uses a two stage lock that latches the door when the load starts, and then when it is time to spin, the second lock engages to ensure the door is properly secured prior to beginning the spin. When this second lock engages, it also closes a set of switch contacts (the auxiliary door switch) telling the control board the door is closed and locked. If for some reason this switch is not closed, the washer will tumble during what would normally be the spin cycle until the entire cycle is complete.

Maytag atlantis washer doesnt spin on spin cycle, also found plastic shavings in clothes, appear to be coming from the top outer edge of the tub, a white plastic trim piece. wash cycle seems to work fine...


There can be several causes, the drum off balance would cause the shavings during spin cycle , balance could be one of the the balancing mechanism failed and not running could be the balance sensor shutting down the spin cycle. You should start by checking the balance shocks .

My Whirlpool Duet washer was out of balance and almost fell over during the spin cycle. The washer was shaking and the front door came open during the spin cycle. Now the front door will not latch and stay...


1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Washer will not spin The washer is a frigidaire front loader model LTF2140E53. will cycle through all settings, but will not spin. Cycle ends with clothes soaked.


I have thata probelm a lot too. I have read that the controls don't sense that the door fully shut. You might try slamming it shut, jiggling the door, poking in the hole where the latch goes. When mine won;t spin, slamming and jiggling works.

Not spin


Hello elvis 1964
welcome

Hello harley1964dm
Welcome

You said, Washer will not spin at end of cycle

For a Frigidaire usually ,
If the washer won't spin.
Many times it's because the load is too small. Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
If it does not remedy the problem try unplugging the machine for 5 minutes which will reset the system!

Let me now how it goes.
