Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Frigidaire front load washer. Model #: LTF2940EE0 Serial #: XC64319573 and it is not spinning on high speeds. It is spinning but only slow. When I put it on the rinse/spin cycle it spins in low speed while rinsing then it drains but when it is time to spin on high speed it just turns off. Do you have any suggestions on what this problem may be?

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.

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

My Frigidaire front load washing machine has stopped high-speed spinning. The regular spin works but not the high spin. Any ideas how to fix that?

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

I have a frigidaire front load washer FTFB4000FS1 that will not do the final high speed spin. it starts the high speed then kicks off and goes back to a slow tumble in alternating directions. i replaced...

Hello & 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.
