washes, tumbles, rinses, drains, but NO final spin.

10 posts in this topic

Frigidaire Gallery Series GLTF2940 FS2 - front loader

 

I ran through the diagnostics and got an E43 on the fill and spin (leakage test), and the same error on the drain pump and high speed spin test.  The chart I have says E43 is a door locking problem, but there was no error on the door locking diagnostic.

 

Any Ideas?  HELP!

 

A little more detail:  if I set the washer to just do a drain and spin.  The timer says 13 minutes.  It drains and the "no spin" light immediately comes on.  It drains again, and it shuts down.  

 

Thank you very much for any suggestions.

E4x usually a Door Lock problem

 

During Spin,

is the Door locked ?

is the Door really locked ?

If so, then un-plug the Power Cord from the Wall Outlet.

Can you then open the Door right away, (bad)

OR only after a few minutes ?

Replace the door latch assy like Reg says.  Problem solved.

Thanks a million guys!  I ordered the part.  Hopefully the install will be as easy as it appears.

Sad news...  I replaced the door latch assembly and the problem persists.

 

As soon as it starts draining after the rinse cycle, the "no spin" light comes on.  When it's done draining, the washer shuts off.  

 

Any other ideas?

Re-check the wire harness connections on the door latch assembly to make sure they're seated all the way and making good contact with the spades on the latch assembly.  I have seen where one of the terminals on the wire harness loosens up and gets sloppy-fitting over time and is no longer making a good, tight connection with it's mating spade on the door latch assembly.  If you find a loose terminal, use a pair of needle nose pliers to cinch it up a bit.

There was nothing glaring on the harness connections.  

 

The door lock was still engaged after the cycle stopped.  I yanked the power cord, and the door opened immediately.  This would, apparently, suggest the assembly was bad right?  SInce it's a new assembly, I'm thinking it must be a loose connection.

 

One more thing:  I closed the door and plugged the machine back in.  An 18h error showed up when I did that.  The door was then locked again.  Any insight into that, or was that just because I interrupted the power?

 

 

I really appreciate your help with this.

Seems like a bad door latch assembly.  Did you buy it through the part link above or somewhere else?

I bought it through Amazon from Carribean Appliance.  They have good ratings and it sounds like they will replace the part without issue, but what a pain in the neck.

They sold you either a generic knockoff (did not come in a blue Electrolux bag) or a used door switch.

People give them a good rating because they don't know the difference between new OEM parts and generic knockoffs and don't think it matters. Your experience is one example of why it does matter.

I wouldn't trust any of the parts vendors on Amazon because you don't know what you're getting despite what's written on the product description page. Here's my experience with that: http://ymlp.com/zsTPYA

All the part links on this site are to new, OEM genuine replacement parts and are guaranteed for 1 year.

they will replace the part without issue, but what a pain in the neck.

Precisely. That's why it's false economy to buy generic knock-off parts from vendors on Amazon or Ebay. "Penny-wise and dollar-dumb," and my master taught me. You'll end up fixing it twice and paying in both time and aggra-dollars.
