Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
Motor has some shorted windings. Timer switches to higher current for faster rotation and the thermal overload protection shuts the process off as the current is too high because of the shorted windings.

i have the same problem o with this machine, technician came in and replace computer board and motor, for nothing after installing these 2 parts he found that the problem is the lock...as was described by frigidaire technical support.

LR usually means that the the signal from the board is not getting to the motor either because of a bad connection at either the motor or the board or the motor itself is no good. Need to check the connections first.

check the pipes are not blocked and the drain is high enough. the pipe has to be up to about 3 feet then down into the drain. . the pipes sometimes get clogged with hair or stuff. if you take the back off be very carefull as there are things in the back of a washing machine that hold charge and you can get electric shock easily. if you do take the top and back off. spray the pump with WD40 it might be stuck. but be careful do not touch anything in the back.

take off the panel above the door,there is a micro switch next to the light put meter on switch and read it out,use a screw driver and push on switch while your checking for continuity,if that switch checks ok change out the enersia switch,take off just the right side of the boot and remove right side white cover and you can reach this switch

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Mike, thank you for your post!
From what you have described your Frigidaire washer is not spinning on a high speed. This could be a possible issue with your motor, control panel, or speed board. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by unplugging the washer for at least ten minutes. If that does not correct your issue I would suggest having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair on your washer. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Welcome to FixYa
If you have
already cleaned the drain pump filter assembly and as the door lock assembly
has also been replaced so I believe that you have already checked the belt
& idler pulley as well. Considering this situation the problem is with the
motor that needs replacement, motor bearings are not available easily. Please
get back to me if you have any other questions.
