Question about Frigidaire GLTF1240A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Problem with frigidaire washing machine

Model is ftf2140eso, when the start button is pressed, the start button flashes, when you hit the start button again, the door locks but no water starts to enter the machine. After 20 seconds, all light go off then the machine starts to beep and all of the lights on the right side flash every 5 seconds. I've unplugged the machine to try to reset it. The only thing my wife did was clean the rubber gasket with a towel.

I've read in a product review that Frigidaire put out a service bulletin regarding the electronic timer circuit board in these machines. Apparently enough of these boards failed to prompt a factory response. With this in mind, you should call an appliance repair center and ask them if they're aware of this Factory Service Bulletin. In many cases like this, where a part is manufactured defective, the repair could be free to you.

Hi, I have a frigidaire front load washer, model FTF2140ESO, that is making a high pitched screeching noise when it enters into the final spin cycle. The noise ramps up in volume as the drum spins faster....

Some times screws can work their way out near the drum and rub against the drum causing the squeak. You might have to take off the back of the washer and see if there is anything loose contacting the drum.

Washer will not spin out

There is most likely a clog in the pump filter. Check the hose between the tub and drain pump. If that isn't it check the door switch.

Washer won't start, lights all work except top one, door lock. I changed the locking device but still the same. On the trouble list the next step should be to change the control board??? The model is...

The board would be the likely problem if the switch is good. To double check the switch check it for ohms, it should be around 1500 ohms no lower than 1400 if it is the switch is bad if it checks good replace the main control. Here is a link that should help
