Question about Washing Machines
When we go to do a load in our Frigidaire LTF2140ES Front Loader it does one step of the cycle then just beeps. We have to push the start button again and then it does the step again and does another step and beeps. It takes about 2 hours to do a load now cause we have to keep pushing the start button and it keeps repeating cycles. Any ideas on what to do?
There may be a problem on the control board (you suspected yes?)
Or it may be waiting for a certain condition.
Basically it's a very simple computer.....-
Select program (sequence of events)
Water fills.....Untill weight sensor says stop.
Water then heats........Untill temperature sensor says stop.
Goes through a sequence of motor spins....untill time out.
Pumps out.....untill floatswitch says empty.
Does same again ...or something else.
Either the control board has a fault - so just doesn't advance, or there is a faulty sensor that never supplies the info needed to advance.
Try and spot at what point it stops and waits. This will pinpoint what it's waiting for.
If it's waiting to heat up - and the element has blown. it will be stone cold. This is a common fault.
Let me know how you get on.
