Hello - we have a frigidaire Gallery front load washer model GLTF2070DSO. When washing a load, the wash continues normally through the cycles, but when the timer gets to 4 minutes, and the final spin, the load continues to spin gently and the timer never advances past 4...it just gets stuck. Even after restarting final spin, it keeps getting stuck on 4 minutes. When you force stop the machine, the clothes seem damp, but not overly wet - so I don't know why it would keep spinning. Any help is greatly appreciated!

THANKS

When the Washer is in the final Spin Cycle, unplug the Washer Power Cord from the Wall Outlet.
Can you immediately open the Door, or only after a few minutes ?

When you unplug the washer in the final spin cycle, it takes a few minutes to unlock to the door.

Hello - Sorry for the late reply. The washer is in a rental property and it took me a couple weeks to get in. I went through the kepad test as outlined. The spin cycle worked normally, but seemed to take a long time. I don't know how long its supposed to spin for, but it seemed long. There were no errors.

Thanks,
Julie

How long? Run it again and while watching the clock so we can get a rough time idea.

Is it getting up to high speed spin where it ramps up and sounds like it's gonna explode?

Hello - I went through the test sequence again and the Final Spin (FS) part went normally - draining, load balancing and then into final spin (2:26pm). It sounded normal, it was not particularly loud, it did increase in speed after about 4 minutes (2:30 pm) it went faster, but it was still pretty quiet. After 10 minutes (2:36), it slowed down and then it completely stopped after 11 minutes (2:37 pm).

I just tried the "quick wash" cycle instead of the "normal" cycle. This time, it did not hang up on 4 minutes. The spin cycle started and the readout said 12 minutes, and proceeded normally. The whole wash cycle did take longer than the 36 minutes on the readout, more like 45 minutes, but overall it proceeded normally. I am going to try it again on the Normal cycle and see if it is only something that happens on that particular cycle.
