Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
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 complete 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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!

FRIGIDAIRE LTF2140FS1 SPIN SLOWLY


Hello friend, thanks for your post!
I understand that the spin feature on your Frigidaire washer is spinning slowly. It sounds like a potential problem with your motor control board or control board. I would recommend performing a reset and you can do that by disconnecting the power from your washer for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help correct the issue I would recommend having a professional come out. They will be able to pinpoint the cause of the issue and replace any electrical components to avoid any personal injury or future issues with your washer. -Matt

Washer starts then stops and goes to no spin.

It sounds like you have replaced multiple parts within your Frigidaire washer. At this point, I would recommend having a professional come to look over you appliance to properly diagnose it to avoid any further part purchases. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

MY FRIGIDAIR LTF2140FS1 FRONT LOAD WASHER DID NOT DRAIN AND THE DOOR WILL NOT LOCK TO TRY THE SPIN/DRAIN CYCLE


Hi Bob, thank you for your post! I understand that your door will not lock and your washer will not drain. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle and verify if the washer will start. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.
