Question about Frigidaire GLTF1240A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Blinking lights and failure to start

The washer drain froze and the water flooded the floor. We thawed the frozen drain and let it all dry, then we tried to use the washer and the indicator lights are all on and the washer will not start even though the water lines are not frozen. We've tried to press the start and pause/cancel buttons down at the same time without success. We've unplugged the unit hoping to reset the control but no luck. We've pressed the option and pause/cancel button at the same time - no success. What can we do next to get the machine to restart?

Suggestion: 1 Press and hold down 'spin' & 'dry' buttons to unlock controls. 2 Have u overloaded the machine with clothes? Reduce load. 3 Try 'spin' only after putting the clothes. Then put off machine & continue with main cycle. Three suggestions here........ What is the clothes capacity of the machine; try to limit within capacity. Try the "spin only" function aft putting the clothes. Then put the machine off & continue with the main cycle.

The pipes froze and busted in my garage which cause water to burst in my Maytag Neptune front loader washer Now the water won't drain Please help

That machine has an electric water pump, The first thing I must ask is has it completely thawed out? There is a rubber hose that goes from the tub to the pump, if the water in the hose is still frozen in the hose or in the drain hose, it will not empty itself.Also the water water level switch is in the top of that hose. Another possibility, is the pump or the water level switch could be damaged. You can access the pump by taking the front panel off. That is not hard to do, requires removal of the door and a couple of other screws.

Can you turn on the hot water pilot light if water is frozen

No it shouldn't hurt anything, the damage may already be done. I would first turn off the water supply to the heater, and attach a hose to the drain and open it. Lighting the pilot will help the unit thaw. Once you feel it has completely thawed and drained, close the boiler drain and open the supply slowly to check for leakage before full use.
Good Luck

Frozen winshield washer lines

Find a heated garage, you need to thaw out he lines, or use a hair dryer if you can follow the line path. When working, drain all the fluid by holding down the spray button on the car. Go and buy he heavy duty washer fluid with the lowest freezing point you can buy and refill your washer reservoir with it. Don't add any water Most likely you had water in the reservoir and it froze.

My whirlpool Duet 9750 takes a long time to spin out and has a difficult time trying to balance

I owned a Whirlpool Duet and had spin/balance problems when I washed heavy and light items together. During a deep freeze my drain hose froze. Did everything I could think of until I ran hot water through washer. It took awhile to thaw. If your floor is weak, you will have a lot of vibration and walking. Hope this helps.

CSH22GR- water on floor, at left front of refrigerator (looking at it) approx. every other day. ? source ideas?

The freezer floor may be frozen over with ice due to a clogged drain..the drain gets froze up and the water actually runs over the floor of freezer and goes out the door..if froze up..defrost and open drain..

Used too much soap...miele flooded the floor....drain fault buzzer blinking what do I do?


by using too much detergent the float for water leaks inside the unit would have lifted and triggered the light to light. to clear the fault have some towels around the front of the unit on the floor and gently tip the unit forward and allow the water to escape. the float will drop down and you will be able to use the machine again.
any remaining water in the unit will just dry up. no damage would be done it happens all the time.

Frozen Valve Busted When Un Thawing and Water Ran through Washer

1st make sure inside is dry...Use a hair drier to make sure,could also be frozen pump outlet if it was that cold....

Machine not starting ...Programme Progress Display light flashing

This normaly indicates an error code. Could be the anti flood device activated due to water leaks etc. The anti flood device (polystireene float and micro switch at base of machiene) puts the washer on pump out mode and shuts off the inlet water. Dry the water at the floor of the washer and check and rectify any leaks.

Hotpoint. Water is leaking from behind light bulb

The drain hose in the back of your freezer is frozen shut. The water you see is coming from the defrost cycle. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the floor from your freezer and remove/thaw all of the ice. Locate the drain in the back of the freezer. It may be behind the back panel. Thaw the drain until water flows freely through it. Reassemble the freezer, and you are back in business.
