Frigidaire front loader model # GLTF2940ES3.

Cycle ended prior to spin segment. Checked error code history to find E47 fault. Troubleshot per manual. Found that the "PTC one-spot check" read ~1582ohms. Although the book indicates that this is sufficient and recommends (rather tells) you to replace the control board we were still skeptical seeing as this is a ONE POINT check on a device that is non-linear. We went with the lesser of two evils. Purchased and replaced a new door lock. Works again! Phew, that could have been costly.

I have a frigid aire front loading washer that is very noisy during the spin cycle. Sounds like a banging nose. Thinking it is the Shocks, bearing to the drum, or unknown. Helpful diagnosing tips?


As I could see it is bearing problem and very costly repair over $300
You should use it until it dies and then try buy new cheaper model top load washer such as top load Inglis or top load washers under $300

My amana front load washer wont spin and is showing an "nd" error message. what does this mean and how do i fix it?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what I understand the error code ND means “No Drain issue”. You’ll need to check for any restriction in pump assembly. It can also be due to a restricted drain hose or loose wire at pump. If after cleaning the drain hose the issue is not resolved then it means the pump has gone bad and unfortunately needs to be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Error code f 70 and 71


F 70 overloaded
F 71 suds detect

To review: You got too many clothes up in here and you is using too much soap. These machines measure the weight. Take some things out or if you only have a small load add some things. It also measures the water quality in a load to determine IF a load is clean enough. Too much detergent throws the machine off. Then it trys to correct the problem many times and that heats up the motor and wrecks the sensors.

Basic rule of thumb:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

This reduces/prevents:

1) Musty Odor

2) Errors/Interrupted Cycles

3) L-O-N-G Cycle Times (longer than time displayed)

4) Insufficient Cleaning Results

5) Small Water Leaks from the air vent behind the washer or at the
front door gasket

6) Damaged sensors

7) Reduced Spin Speeds (laundry not spin-dried effectively)

Washer won't spin. Washed bath mats (small) and


Read a post from someone else on this - turned out it works fine, just wouldn't work with the small wet load. I added towels to the bath mat load, washed them, it spins fine. Washed clothes & that worked fine too. Yay!! Not broken. Just not found of small loads of bath mats!

My washer wont do the spin cycle. everything else work fine but no spin


Hi,
The reason the washer won’t spin is due to the either of the latches on the door.
This model uses a two stage lock that latches the door when the load starts, and then when it is time to spin, the second lock engages to ensure the door is properly secured prior to beginning the spin. When this second lock engages, it also closes a set of switch contacts (the auxiliary door switch) telling the control board the door is closed and locked. If for some reason this switch is not closed, the washer will tumble during what would normally be the spin cycle until the entire cycle is complete.
On the entire Frigidaire ATFxxxxxxx line of front load washers, if the secondary door lock fails, the unit will not spin. If you suspect this is the reason your washer is not spinning, do a check of the error log and you will find an E47 error has been logged. This error indicates the control board thinks the wax motor has failed because the auxiliary switch never closed. The customer will not see this error in the display, but it will be stored in memory. A quick resistance check of the wax motor will tell you if it has failed. Expect 1K to 1.5K of resistance from most of the wax motor heaters.

After finding the E47 error stored in memory, I would request you that the switch be removed from the outer door seal spring so you could pull the switch out the front. A quick resistance check showed the wax motor was open electrically so it was no longer working. Install a new switch assembly
, reattached all the wires along with the door seal. And now the washer will wash and spin.

Thank You for using Fixya.com

Error Message and Tub not spinning


UE is likely an unbalanced load or load is too large. Reduce the size of the load and your issue should be resolved.
