Hi Kimberly, this is AP. Thank you for your post.

I understand you are having trouble with your Frigidaire front load washer, model LTF2940FE, not draining or spinning. There are a few possibilities that could be causing this to happen.

Overuse of detergent can result in oversudsing then restricting the tub from turning properly and not spinning out. You can attempt running a cold water rinse cycle to get rid of suds if this is case.

Another possibility could be that the drain hose is too long or restricted. If the drain pump makes a humming noise there could be a restriction in the drain line. Confirm that your standpipe (located in the rear of the washer) height is not higher than 96" and not below 24". Lastly, if the drain pump does not make a humming noise once the washer is in the spin cycle a defective timer or drain pump could be the cause of your washer not draining or spinning

If you can determine that oversudsing, a too long or clogged drain hose is not the root of the problem I would recommend contacting an authorized technician. Contacting an authorized technician can ensure no troubleshooting step has been missed. Parts can be costly and if the problem is precisely diagnosed, it can save you a lot of time and funds. I have provided a link below that will assist you in locating and authorized technician in your area if needed. I hope this information proves helpful for you.

My LG front loading washer makes a train noise during the rinse cycle. What could be the cause?

if it is right after the drain cycle; it then goes into a spin. It then starts to fill with water for the rinse while the tub is still turning. The water entering the tub while the tub is spinning, cleans the tub of soap and the water going through the holes in the tub are causing the noise. It is normal if only in the rinse cycle.

Admiral Washer makes loud steady noise during spin cycle but washes clothes & completes cycle. Possible bearing problem?

If a front loader type, try lifting up on the drum. If it clunks and seems to move somewhat easily, it is probably the front bearing on drum rear support shaft--a major tear-down to replace. If a top loader, try tipping the basket (that spins) in several directions--if it makes clunking sounds, try removing the agitator and check the tub mounting bolts at the bottom center for tightness. If ok, tip the tub again and watch for movement. It may have a bad bearing below the tub at the center area. Remove the tub bolts and pull the tub out revealing the drive hub underneath. Don't know if you would have to drop the transmission to repair what you find. Good luck!

An extreme vibration in spin cycle. It makes the

Because front load washers are VERY HEAVY, they shake if you have a wooden floor. If your front loader sits on concrete and it still shakes, then you have to make sure all is balanced. If it still shakes, then inside the system there are shock absorbers that need to be checked.

Frigidaire front washer has power but won't fill up, drain or go through correct cycles

You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. First set the washer to drain and spin. If you hear a hum or grinding noise and the water in the tub isn't draining or it's draining slowly you have something in the pump. If you take the rear panel off you'll reveal the drain pump at the right front corner or maybe middle on this model. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp (this can be tricky) attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. (you may want to have some old towels ready) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!
