I have a frigidaire GLTF1670AS front loader.Its a year old. The first week I had it I had to replace the timer. It wouldn't advance through the cycles. About a month or so went by and it was doing it again. We ended up replacing the timer three times. The last time it seemed to fix it until today. Again, the timer kinda makes a buzzing sound and it will only go through so many cycles before it won't move by itself. Any idea why it keeps blowing the timer?
Reason? There shouldn't be one. Seems you're extraordinarily unlucky with timers. Mine's 10yo, never broke. The timer is a standalone part, it's not dependent on any other parts for its longevity. So there can't be any other parts in the washer 'killing' it.
Are you handling it gently? Turn it slowly when setting, don't whip it around.

I couldn't pull up a line drawing for this model, but I recall that on these, (and other fridges of this age and era) had the defrost timer mounted under the front edge of the fridge, just behing the toe kick panel.
Some manufacturers mounted them at the rear behind the thin paperboard "cover", but I'd look for it at the front first.
In either location, it should be mounted behind a metal plate with a small hole in it that has a plastic or metal adjustment shaft that a flat bladed screwdriver slips into to manually advance the cycles.
Just remember to unplug the fridge before you disconnect the timer or attempt to replace it. Once you're done, you can advance the timer to initiate the defrost or cooling cycle, to gets things going.
It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing. I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information. RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell. In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Because F04 is not a clearly defined failure, the possible cause of your situation is a timer, a lid switch, a belt, a drive motor, or an agitator.
Solution, before proceeding watch your timer (does it follows its cycle?) if no replace timer, if yes, then check your lid switch replace if defective, check your belt if it broken or worn replace it, check your drive motor for functionality, and check your agitator--your agitator can become worn, strip out the spline that allows it to properly grip the shaft.
just had my frigidaire fronter loader repaired,,try the door switch ...mines wouldnt spin clothes were soaked did everything else fine... what may have happen is when the spin cycle is ready to do its part it double checks to see if door is locked but with a bad switch it sends the wrong signal and computer this the door is open so it shuts off....well gl mines is running got lots of laundry to do,.,,,hope this helps
My Frigidaire front loading washer is less than 2 years old and YES there is a belt, I am going to replace my 3rd belt this week.....the wheel on the back of the drum has moved enough, even after numberous times of tightening, that it has worn a HUGE hole in the back of the drum from the belts. I will NEVER buy another product from them again, due to not standing behind their product and sending a repair man to my home to fix it, then telling me that I will have to replace the drum....(ltf2940es0).
DISCUSTED WITH FRIGIDAIRE!!!!
