    Is there a way to replace the brake assembly without purchasing a $100 tool?

This problem is normally attributed to a combination of two things: A worn out snubber ring, and a worn brake assembly.

The snubber ring assembly is a white teflon ring that sits under the wash tub at the base (called the milk stool, because it looks like an upside down milk stool).  The entire wash tub assembly will rest on the snubber as it helps get rid of vibration while the tub agitates and spins.  When the snubber starts to wear down, you will notice an increase in tub vibration during the spin cycle and it will sometimes begin to squeak. NOTE: YOU CANNOT OIL THE SNUBBER! DOING SO CAN CAUSE MORE DAMAGE.

The brake assembly is mounted between the pulley wheel and transmission under the washer.  As the brake assembly ages, the pad (which is mounted along the rim of a metal disc) begins to glaze over.  As it glazes, it will also squeak and cause the sudden "slamming" to a stop.  The glazing, coupled with humidity in the air can make this condition worse.

Both problems occur normally with this model washer and can be attributed to normal wear and tear.  I recommend replacing the brake assembly and snubber at the same time.  You will need, however, a special Maytag brake removal tool and spring removal tool if you decide to attempt this repair yourself (it is possible to accomplish this without the aid of a repairman).  Let me know if you need further assistance.  CAUTION: THERE IS A 200 LB COMPRESSED SPRING UNDER THE BRAKE HOUSING.  ATTEMPTING TO REMOVE THE COVER WITHOUT THE BRAKE REMOVAL TOOL CAN BE DANGEROUS.

Our Frigidaire GLTF2940ES0 washer was in spin cycle with 7 mins to go when is just stopped. No specific error code other then Err. It will not start at all now. Door locks and unlocks fine.


Sounds like the electronic locking mechanism is malfunctioning. It is secondary lock which is supposed to enguage before the high spin cycle. It is about a $20 part.

Hotpoint WML540 stops mid cycle, end of rinse going onto spin. Key lock light flashes, it also makes a banging sound as though washing trainers and then there are some clicking sounds before it stops. If...


maybe the concrete balancing weight has come loose and the fact that most of the water has been drained off when you turn it off for 10 seconds it does not have the one-sided affect anymore also check the damping springs as one may have come off in the violent spin eric

The washer is shuting off at around 7 min left and is not fully spinning the clothes dry. No code is appearing it is just shutting off.


Sounds like your door latch is the culprit. This machine will not allow the spin to occur if it detects an issue with the door lock assembly. The lock actually has three components in it and may still lock, but not register the latch portion..
Also make sure it is draining all the water out at the end of the cycle. If not that will also stop the machine from going through a spin cycle.
Good luck and let me know if you have any questions on replacing the door lock. I will just need you to reply with the model number of the machine..

Washer is acting erratic. spin cycle works sometimes. stops half way through cycle sometimes. got a new belt. what's next? pump or timer. both are spendy $ thanks. frigidaire FTR630ASO


The control monitors the door lock prior to and during the spin cycle as a safety feature. The washer will not advance to the spin cycle when the door lock is not activated and stops when the lock is deactivated during the spin cycle.

In your case, the door lock is working intermittently causing the washer to spin intermittently. This is probably due to a faulty door lock and switch assembly or poor connection at the control board or at the assembly itself. Replace the door lock and switch assembly if necessary.

Stopped operating in the spin cycle


With a heavy blanket you probably have an out-of-balance condition which doesn't let the machine spin out and drain. This would keep the door lock from opening. Try hitting the Stop button twice. This should cancel the cycle and let the door lock open after a little while. Then either redistribute the load or add some items and run a Spin and Drain cycle.
