Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
I have a GLTF2940ES3 front loader. It is a bit over a year old. Today we went to take the clothes out and they were soaked. We tried running drain/spin, rinse/spin...nothing. It does everything except the high speed spin. Water drains fine..."whirring" noise when it should be spinning....we tried lessening the load too, and nothing. Please help!?!?!?

The problem is a faulty Door Latch Assembly. The same thing happened to my Frigidaire front load washer. The part is easy to install, costs about 60 dollars and can be picked up at most appliance repair stores . To access the switch just remove the wire around the front drum gasket, peel back the rubber gasket beside the switch assembly then remove the two screws holding it in place. remove the three wire connector blocks and swap in the new switch. My washer was giving me error code 41 witch is a faulty control board. But the problem was in fact only the switch...

Put washer on spin only
press cancel twice
press and hold options and start button until all the lights flash.
turn the knob clockwise 6x
this will override the computer and put it into spin cycle. i have to do this every time until the repair guy comes to repair the comptuer (for the 3rd time) not under warrantee this time.

I have the same problem o with this machine, technician came in and replace computer board and motor, for nothing after installing these 2 parts he found that the problem is the lock...as was described by frigidaire technical support.

I have an LTF 2940, have a error code 41, which a chart I found says the circuit board thinks the door is open. This is only a page out of a book showing error codes. It recommends running test #7. What's that?

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.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question####
