Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Starts then stops and won't re-start

Help! My washer starts to fill, then stops and won't continue. I've cleaned both the hot and cold water input filters, unplugged it for 30 minutes, emptyed it, and tried every setting on the washer. Nothing works!!  Any ideas???

 

Also, once I emptyed it I tried to turn it on and it made kind of a weird grinding noise, and stopped again....

 

Thanks for any help!

Plug off the wall first. Check your outlet filters, clean out. It is located right in front bottom right of machine. Push one side of the small door. The machine will not spin if the filter is blocked. Refit carefully. If you have manual, check for filter cleaning. While you are at it check your pump area too. Position machine switch to "off" position. Re-start........

I have a GE stackable GUD27GSSJWW - we are on the second one with the same issue. The washer will begin to fill (wash or rinse cycle) and then just stop and the lights start flashing.


It may not be the washer. Have you checked that the filter on the water inlet has not got partially blocked with rubbish from your water. This is a common reason for a fault like this. You will need to remove the washer, remove the water inlet hoses and then remove the inlet filters and clean them. I was given a very expensive washer a few years back that refused to work for the owner who bought a new one. After cleaning the filter, it continued to work for many years after that.

When the water has reached it's proper level, the hot water turns off, but the cold water keeps filling until the water overflows the basket


Try this. With the wash tub empty, start to fill with water. Without turning washer off, unplug the washer from wall.

If water filling stops (hot and cold), then you are looking at a bad timer assembly. Replacement isn't that hard, parts can be difficult to find though.

If water continues to fill, your valve body / solenoid assembly is likely full of lime-scale. Easily replaced.

Intermittent water flow interupted by solenoids pulsing


I've got the same problem. If I pause the cycle, wait about 10 seconds, and then resume, the water starts normally. I suspect the Cold Water Inlet Solenoid is sticking, probably due to water sediment in the solenoid causing it to stick. I'll try cleaning it and then replace if that doesn't help and let you know what happens.

Won't complete cycle, stops at rinse. and can't get hot water.


Are you on well water? turn off the cold water to the washer and clean the screen filter out. do not leave filter out.
the machine probably has a cold only final rinse so it won't work properly.

I have the washer on cold water, but it runs warm, stops, trickles, then comes out warm again, stops, trickles, then warm again ect.On the rinse cycle it will only trickle out.


The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water.

If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.
