Frigidaire front load washer FTF2140ES1 wash basin full before wash cycle starts?

4 posts in this topic

Back again with a new puzzle for my old Frigidaire front load washer, model # FTF2140ES1.

Today, after sitting idle for two days (laundry day was Thursday), my wife says the wash basin was full when she started to put clothes in for a new load. A drain/spin cycle spun the washer out and it seems to be working fine now.

That reminded me that when I was fixing the wiring harness a few weeks ago, the same thing happened to me. I shrugged it off, rationalizing that I must have kept the dial on the "fill" test on the way to the "spin" test.

Any thoughts? Again, seems to be working fine, and it's only happened once since I put humpty dumpty back together two weeks ago.

sounds like a leaky Water Valve ..
When you're done with the laundry, unplug the Power Cord from the Wall Outlet ..
In a day or two, check to see if there's any water in the Washer ...
