Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Frigidaire (LTF2940E) Washer starts, stops, starts, stops...

I have a Frigidaire front load washer (LTF2940E) which up until yesterday was working as it should. Now when a load of clothes is put in it and the cycle started the water starts to pour into the tub, but then quickly stops. The timer still appears to function...however its not a 1-to-1 ratio, its delayed, the cycle actually last longer than the number of minutes indicated on the timer. This starting and stopping continues, with the starts being quick/short and the stops being long.

I removed the load of clothes which left the water remaining in the tub. I then changed the program control to "Drain/Spin". Again, the cycle started and then quickly stopped and continued to do this as described above. The water remaining in the tub did drain, but I have yet to see or hear the tub begin to spin during either of these attempts to run a cycle on the washer. Also, I have not seen any error codes displayed on the washer.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    The washing machine never does completely fill. When the Normal wash program is selected and the start button is pushed, the washer makes the sound as though its starting and about a 2 second shot of water is added to the tub which is then followed by nothing happening for an extended period (5 minutes or more), then again a quick 2 second shot of water followed by another period of time with nothing happening and this continues. This same on/off/on/off...happens with the "Drain/Spin" program too. When the washer is doing nothing, the indicators and timer remain lit. Even a "Cold/Cold" wash program experiences this same issue. At no time since this started to happen have I seen the tub move.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer won't stop spinning with 1 minute on timer- it continues until I hit cancel. I don't like to babysit a machine but have to make sure it doesn


If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.

frigidaire has problems with their computer boards and it sounds like this is your problem,i've seen them shut down and then after a while start beeping on it's own just like your machine is doing and it was the board part 137006000

Loc coming up on frigidaire washer front load


The controls have been locked unintentionally and this is a safety feature to avoid having someone accidentally stop the washer or modify the cycle. It can be unlocked by pressing and holding the OPTIONS and SELECT buttons for 10 seconds or until the "LOC" is no longer displayed. Lock the controls with the same buttons and in the same way until "LOC" is displayed alternately with the estimated cycle time.

Frigidaire gallery front load won't spin


Does the washer spin after the wash cycle? It sounds like the door switch. This is a common problem with frigidaires. 90% of the time a door switch fixes it.

Washer Stopped Spinning


My Frigidaire front loading washer is less than 2 years old and YES there is a belt, I am going to replace my 3rd belt this week.....the wheel on the back of the drum has moved enough, even after numberous times of tightening, that it has worn a HUGE hole in the back of the drum from the belts. I will NEVER buy another product from them again, due to not standing behind their product and sending a repair man to my home to fix it, then telling me that I will have to replace the drum....(ltf2940es0).

Frigidaire washing machine model LTF2940E


Check your outlet filters, clean out. The machine will not spin if the filter is blocked. Also check your inlet into the machine. Clean screens on both ends of the pipes. Refit carefully.
