Question about Washing Machines

Machine keeps doing one step of cycle and beeps

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?

Hi there.

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.
Richie.

    Our washer has this same condition. It is not any specific cycle and it does stop and beep on different cycles. The next load you do it will not stop at that same cycle but may stop at a different cycle.
    Any ideas would be appreciated

Front load pumps out water, DOESN'T SPIN, but DOES "tumble"


The pressure switch or pressure switch tube could be blocked tricking the machine that it still has water in it therefore not advancing into 'spin mode'.

Or the electronic card could be faulty and require replacing.

Frigadaire front loader washer


Frigidaire, Zanussi, AEG, & More....

EFO = Filter Blocked (low flow) and it is accessible from the bottom front of the machine.

1. there is a blockage in the filter or drain hose.takes too long to drain out.
2. over dosing of powder or liquid. again can cause an air lock in the pump which slows the drain pump down.

Check the filter and drain hose and test again. this fault will only come up at the end of a cycle.
You do not need to reset the machine to get rid of the fault code as this is automatically deleted.

Run an empty load with no detergent in an attempt to get rid of the code.

Issue with front loader going through spin cycle


you can try removing the lower acess panel(2 screws along the bottom of front) behind the panel youll see the pump assy mounted to the right, disconnect the hoses and check for debris in the hose assy. the machine will not spin if it cant get rid of water, and it cant get rid of water with a clogged hose. very commom.UNPLUG UNIT FIRST PUMP WIRES ALWAYS LIVE!!!!!!!

Beep coming from washing machine


You might have the end of cycle setting turned on. It will beep to let you know that the washer is done. Can turn off, under options on the control panel.

Washer keeps beeping


HATE TO SAY IT BUT THE BOARD WOULD NEED REPLACEMENT.BEEPING NORMALLY INDICATES A FAULT CONDITION WHICH WOULD STOP THE CYCLE(WASH) OR THE COMPLETION OF A CYCLE.
