Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

Open Question

Frigidaire LTF2140FS1 Front Load Tumble Action Washer- The cycle is selected, all other options according to manufacturer defaults; the unit fills with water, then goes into an error code: all lights flash intermittently with one beep. It doesn't matter which cycle is selected - the unit will drain and spin. According to mfgr troubleshoot - drain must be at between 24-96 inches (actually at 35" AFF); brand new hoses have been replaced with brand new hoses! Help, please.

SOURCE: Water Will not drain after cycle

The filter for the drain is located under the drum assembly. It is inside the rubber cover between the drum and the pump. It has 3 clamps that you will need to remove, than you can get at the filter inside the rubber housing. It will be clogged with coins, or lint from the wash, and once this is cleaned, the machine will work like new.

Had the same problem and fixed with ease. The problem is with the door lock. There is a secondary locking mechanism that kicks in for the final spin due to the high speed. When the secondary lock goes bad the washer will not do the final spin. The replacement part is under $40 @ AppliancePartsPros.com .

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you've described,...you likely need a door lock/switch assembly.

The door latch is likely the single most common fault (which prevent's any spin, and consequently drenching wet clothing at the end of the cycle) with the frigidaire/electrolux built washer's, aside from pump's being obstructed.

I think it fool's many people because the lock indicates it is energized on the panel, however the built in "monitor" switch inside the assembly fail's. I do see a lot of these particular machine's...unfortunately.

You should be able to purchase one at most local brick & mortar stores or on-line part's depot's such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclininc.com" to name a couple. They usually sell for about $50 or so, part # 1531974 ( # at repairclinic.com ) and are relatively easy to replace. It should resemble the image here...

As for replacing said switch, There are a couple ways to access it, through the top and squeezing your arm down the front or the way I prefer, remove the front bellows spring/retainer.

1) **unplug the washer from the wall...safety first of course.**

2) Remove the spring, get it started where the spring is located with a small screwdriver. Once you`ve got the spring/retainer off ( it comes off and on pretty easy by hand ) pull the gasket/bellows back away from the cabinet.

3) Undo the two screws holding the switch to the cabinet, pull the switch out ( there is just enough slack in the wires so don`t pull too hard ) and swap the wires from the old assembly to the new one and you`re in business.

4) To put it back together, just reverse the removal procedure. The trickiest part is the retainer. Rap the retainer around the boot leaving the spring for the last...and make sure the spring is located at the 6 o`clock position...usually. Just wherever it was initially.

Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if my instructions are not clear.

P.S.
There is a slim chance of a faulty motor or motor control board, but that would not be where I would direct you to start...those are exceptions rather than the rule.


Thank you for visiting Fixya today. Good luck.

Regards,


Macmarkus :)

Frigidaire front load washer FTF2140 upon start it began filling and then turn off, did this everytime. Unplugged it and the same thing happened. Now the lights stopped coming on and it does not work.


Good Morning Heather,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF2140, begins to fill and then turns off. You unplugged it, trying to reset it, and now the lights are not coming on and your washer is not working. Since you have already reset your washer, by unplugging it, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what the cause of your washer not working is. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

How to clean it ask


Hi Heather, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

I see that your question is listed under a Frigidaire front load washer, FTF2140FS. Please help me understand if the question you are asking is related on how to clean the tub of your washer. If so, you may add a 1/2 cup of liquid bleach to the detergent compartment of the dispenser drawer and fill the bleach dispenser compartment to the Max Fill level and run WITHOUT a clothes load using the Normal Cycle to refresh the tub. I hope this is the information is that you are seeking, otherwise if you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect!

MY FRIGIDAIR LTF2140FS1 FRONT LOAD WASHER DID NOT DRAIN AND THE DOOR WILL NOT LOCK TO TRY THE SPIN/DRAIN CYCLE


Hi Bob, thank you for your post! I understand that your door will not lock and your washer will not drain. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle and verify if the washer will start. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Frigidaire top load washer model number FWS6600ES0: during the wash and rinse cycles... whether it's filling or agitating on either... water seems to be draining causing the machine to stop and start...


If it has detected SUDs it may be trying to rid them. Is your drain hose at least 30 inchs above the floor? If is ain't then gravity may be causing the problem. Is the drain hose jammed tightly into the drain? This may cause a siphoning effect.
