Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Frigidaire GLTF2940ES3 door lock keeps clicking when open or closed and panel flashes partial digits

Ok... the short story:
door lock keep clicking trying to catch the door loop over and over and over and the 3 digit read-out flashes in-sync partial digits...

the long story:
i think i had a power outage-- because my copier is dead...
around the same time the washer starting acting up first it wouldnt open and flashed a whole lot of lights ... i kinda forced it open because of that or because of my not so subtle manuevers with a screwdriver I busted the catch on the door lock --- which i replaced with a new assembly--- i didn't replace the door loop but i prolly should --- then i tried the option&select to unlock and the code changed from digits to partial something like upside down 'L" for all three digits..

now the machine keeps clicking the door lock every 2 seconds over and over when the door is open or closed...

i dont think i screwed up plugging in the three wiring harnesses but they could have come off at the board -- or worse off the control board is fried...

suggestions: -- new control board ($150) might make me scrap the machine even though its less than 6 months old --- but is out of warranty -- i bought it and it sat without use when i was building the house. ...

any ideas--- please help or else my girlfriend will finally leave me for wearing the same underwear 4 weeks running.... :(

Washer does not turn on and keeps flashing the "pau" light

  • If there is no additional code, your Door Switch may have failed, causing your washing machines computer to think the door is open. Remove the panel to gain access to the Door Switch. Using a multi-meter, test the Door Switch (orange to red/black and black to red black wires) and make sure it closes the connection when pressed in. If not, replace the Door Switch assembly. A temporary fix would be to use a jumper wire to close the switch, and see if the machine will run.
  • Also, make sure that the door catch on the door is not missing one of the legs. They sometimes break off which will keep the door from locking and the machine wont run. it should look like the picture.
  • Try the diagnostic by pushing and holding "options" and "pause/cancel" for 3-5 seconds. The display will usually show an error code like "E44". The main controller(CCU) is a common problem on these machines. If the board itself has failed it requires the replacement of the CCU. Frigidaire MAY have covered the electronics in your machine for an extended period beyond the standard 1 year all inclusive warranty. This WILL be shown in the back of the owners manual in the warranty section so please read it carefully. Otherwise, you will need to replace that board at your own expense.

My washer door will not open. When I press the Open Door/ Cancel button a buzzing sound will come from behine the handle but the door will not open.

First of all try the reset procedure and see if it helps before proceeding towards troubleshooting:-- Close door
Turn machine on------
Select "Drain/Spin"------
Select "No Spin"------
Press the "Options" button 4 times------
There is a short circuit in the door switch assembly.Its not getting opened due to short in the door switch assembly.You need to get the door switch assembly replaced.But before that open the door by screw driver manually then remove the door lock connections and check the voltage at the door lock switch if its check ok then the door switch is faulty and needs to be replaced.But if the connections checked short then its a short in wires not the switch. Most likely the problem is a bad door lock which has to be replaced. You can find the complete instructions in the Service manual.

- The part number for the lock assembly is AP3837611

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

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.

My Fridgidare washer Model #GLTF2940ES3 keeps flashing an "E70" error code. Could someone please tell me what this means?

Hello there :
this 70 code has 2 possible causes
(1) a control board which might be in need of replacement. (costly to replace )
(2) the door lock assembly which could be bad. (fairly cheep and simple to replace ).

I would first shoot for the lesser (least costly of the two) and go with the door lock and this will be the problem if not this controle board can be costly to replace ok ?
I hope that this has helped you out
best regards michael
