Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...

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!?!?!?

    I have a 3 year old GLTF294OES Front Load Washer and noticed that the washer did not drain. I tired the drain/spin cycle, the water drained, but the drum did not spin. I removed the clothes and wrung them out. The drum will not manually spin. I noticed a sock wedged between the inner and outer drum. After removing the top panel, there appears to be no easy way to access the sock. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem that sometimes my clothes will finish the cycle and still be very wet. I have also tried to drain and spin or rinse and spin and it doesn't help. Mine is a not even a year old.

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...

I have had nothing but problems with this washer since purchasing it 2 years ago. NEVER AGAIN will I purchase a front loader or frigidaire. Once again, I went to put my wash in the dryer and its soaking wet, won't spin. This is the biggest piece of junk ever!

My washer keeps showing a E20 code...What is this? I read other answers and it seems to be the hoses are clogged or something how do I get inside to remove the sock or what ever it is in it, to fix it?

Put washer on spin only
press start
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.

  • Melissa Jacobson Oct 08, 2011

    I tried this - while all the lights flashed several times, when I turned the knob 6 times it goes to silk which is a no spin option. So wondering if this answer is a joke? Ha Ha.

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.

I believe E47 is a door lock code.
You probably just need to replace the door latch.

My washer wont spin


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.
