Front load Frigidaire not working

10 posts in this topic

Electricity is OK... the door lock light is on.  Cycle knob set, but nothing happens.  Not a sound - no water.  When I pull the door open partially and slowly, I hear a buzzing sound... the sound I used to hear before I replaced the door latch a few weeks ago.  But, still nothing happens.  So, I know it has something to do with the brand new latch I put on.  Any clues?

I'm not with the offending machine right now, but, when the door lock light was on, yes, I could jiggle the door and hear a buzz.  I did not open it all the way, without shutting off the cycle, but imagine I could.

 

I replaced the latch a few weeks ago because one of the fingers was broken.  It worked fine for a few weeks.  Right now, both fingers of the latch are there and look fine. When I try to start a cycle, the unit does not let any water in.  Nothing happens at all.

 

I will check the wires and connections to the speed control board.  Thanks for that tip.

You are referring to the latch having two fingers. That sounds like the door strike to me. So did you replace the latch or the strike?

"Input, More input" said Number 5..........You replaced the "fingers" on the catch?? vs. the " latch assy" inside the front panel????...........Where did the broken piece of the "catch" go, was it found ??????...................Grand Master, ...I think I saw the model number just below the question space.............

It's model GLTF1670ASO.  I replaced the latch, not the striker.

 



Good point, I never found the broken piece from the old finger.  Hmmm...

You are all such wise sages.  The tip of the latch was, indeed, broken off.  I dug it out, but the latch assy, as you call it, was also chipped.  

I ordered a new latch assy and it is working like a charm.

Thanks!
