Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(no promises but it's worth trying this!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Error code on ltf2140fs2


Hello friend, I appreciate your post!

From my understanding your front load washer LTF2140FS2 is beeping 9 times and then you have to unplug it and plug it back in. When the unit is beeping do you notice any additional lights on the panel coming on? This information would be helpful in assisting you with getting a proper explanation to your current problem. -Matt

Why is my frigidaire washing machine model # ltf2140fs2 door is hard to shut and the hinges are rusted


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the door on your Frigidaire washer, model# LTF2140FS2, is hard to shut and the hinges are rusted. There could be a possibility that there is a leak that is rusting the hinges. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why the door won't shut and why the hinges are rusted. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I am looking to buy a used Frigidaire GLWS1233AS2 Top Load Washer and GLER331AS2 . They are supposed to be 3 years old. Are they good machines or do they have lots of problems?


Mine is 10 yrs old and I am just now having a problem. Clothes are too damp after last spin cycle. Hopefully, I'll get an answer here soon. Another problem I noticed a few months after I got it, with this model, is the fabric softener dispenser on top of the agitator. You have to remove it every single time and clean it. I added a little water to it before adding fabric softener and thought that would help to stretch the cleaning to maybe once or twice a week. Don't do it! I started to smell mildew and found out why. The agitator shaft that this dispenser sits on was caked with old fabric softener. I just use the blue Downey ball now. The fabric dispenser stinks but I have had 10 yrs of good washing.

Will not spin


I had same problem with mine and its was that the coin trap in the black bellows assembly that connects the pump to the drum was full off coins and hair. because you are at the ASPCA there might be animal hair clogged in it. Recommendayion that rather than put the green clamps back on that you get some regular hose clamps to use.

Frigidaire Affinity front load washer will not spin


sounds like the impeller on the drain pump is blocked. Noise could be coins trapped in drum. Check filter thoroughly, if you cannot remove blockage you may have to remove tubes from pump to clear out any blockage.

Frigidaire front load washer


I had the same problem. The service tech came out and replaced the pump, it has been working fine ever since. I couldn't believe the pump went out in only a couple of years.
