Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940E Gallery 3.5 Cu. Ft. King Size Front Loading Washer

Frigidaire Gallery Model FWT449GFS1

I washed a small carpet and it fell apart. All the fibres and yarn pieces have clogged up the machine and it will not drain or cycle. I have bailed out the water and drained the hose, but I need to know what part I may be able to replace. I don't know where to start.

    I think that we have already completed most of these steps, but I will try again when I get home.

    Thank you

There is an obstruction in the drain pump. The only way to clear the obstruction is to remove the lower panel at the front by removing the 2 screws at the lower edge. This will allow the front panel to drop down. You will need to unplug the machine for the next part.

Now this will get a little messy... Be sure to have a lot of towels nearby to sop up the water. On the lower right hand side there is a pump with a black bellows attached which is also attached to the bottom of the tub. This black hose is clamped to the front of the pump if you unclamp the hose the remaining water in the system will spill out. You will have to reach inside the bellows and remove whatever obstruction is inside. some models will have a trap inside which may have to be removed from the top of the hose assembly by unscrewing the clamp on the bottom of the tub.

The hose will have to be reattached in the reverse manner. It can be quite tricky to do so... Once the machine is back together you can run a rinse and spin cycle, it should go into the full spin when all the water drains.

This procedure may have to be repeated a couple of times to completely remove all of the carpet fibres.

I have a frigidaire gallery series front loader washer model gltf2940e it keeps giving error e10 what do i do

E10 means that your cold water is coming in too slow, disconnect the cold water hose and check to see if the screen on your washing machine is clogged. If the screen is clean and the hose has good pressure then you will need to replace the water valve on your machine--- this is the piece that the hoses directly connect to.

Errant earring

assuming this has long since been dealt with, but if its not in the rubber gasket at the front of the machine, take off the bottom panel at the front, there is a small pump there that drains the unit. It may be trapped in there. You can use pliers or vice grips to remove the couplers holding the hoses on and a screwdriver to remove it.

needlenose pliers grabbing the center shaft (white plastic around a brass center around a screw), turned counterclockwise will free the remainder of the broken knob and allow you to remove it and then screw on the new part.
