Re: frigidaire frontend washer LTF2140ES3 will drain not...
There is an auxiliary switch in the door lock and switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle to advance to the spin cycle. When the machine works except advancing to the spin cycle, it signifies that this auxiliary switch cannot be activated and the door lock and switch assembly is faulty. Replaced the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) to fix the washer.
Disconnect power to the machine. Open the washer door then look for the retaining hoop securing the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Stretch the retainer spring of the door seal retaining hoop then remove it.
Carefully peel off part of the door seal from the lip of the door opening near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove enough of the door seal to gain access to the door lock and switch assembly.
Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.
Take the door lock and switch assembly out of the machine. Disconnect the wires from its terminals then connect it to the new door lock and switch assembly.
Put the new door lock and switch assembly back into position in the front panel and secure it with the securing screws.
Properly put the eased part of the door seal back over the lip of the door opening then secure it with the retaining hoop.

I had the same problem listed above on my LTF2140ES3...the machine did
everything but do a final spin. In diagnostics I could do the final
spin and the machine kicked out an E43 which is the control board
Following the advice here I changed the door latch first and the problem went away and the unit runs as it should.
You'll get "experts" who say that the unit would not spin at all if the
door latch was bad. I can tell you first hand that they are wrong.
Again the unit did all the normal tumbling but didn't do the high speed
final spin. Again, replacing the door latch fixed the problem. The door
latch is part number 131763245 (AP3886713)
After charging me $275 to change the water pump, the repairman said I needed a new computer board for another $160. I went & bought a new washer - this time a regular top loader mechanical washer with no computer. The repairman said computerized washers & front loaders in particular have lots of problems. He said top loader Whirlpools have the least problems.
You said, you have a Frigidaire front loader and it will not spin out in the final spin would you please help me. thanks
For a Frigidaire usually , If the washer won't spin. Many times it's because the load is too small. Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load. If it does not remedy the problem try unplugging the machine for 5 minutes which will reset the system!
Let me now how it goes. Huuum Please remember to leave a rating
check to make sure all hoses are not clogged - our washer hose before the pump was clogged due to washing a rug that had deteriorating rubber backing - would not drain until I flushed out the hose that goes from the tub t the pump.
My Frigidaire front loader washer model LTF2140E doesnt want to drain the water when set to wash (heavy-normal-quick selectors). It washes put thats it. I have to switch the selector to drain/spin then rinse/spin cycle to finish the load. I checked the drain hose for any clogs....everything is clear. Any suggestions? Also,iIs their any reset buttons for this type of washer?
