Frigidaire Front-Loading washer won't fill, drain, and stops mid-cycle

4 posts in this topic

Frigidaire LTF2940ES0. First it wouldn't drain. It has a new drain pump, so I don't think that's it. Also has a new door lock motor and latch and the door does stay locked for a minute or so after the machine is turned off. Now it won't fill. Checked the inlet valve and it looked fine. No gook. Went through all of the cycles and switched from cold to hot, etc. just to make sure. No difference. Now the machine is cutting off in mid-cycle when it gets to where it should be draining and spinning. That's a new one. Even when the drain pump was kablooie the machine didn't cut off.

 

It does agitate.

 

Really, really don't want to go pay $1,000 for a new machine so......Help?

May be a bad Main Controller,

OR it may have a loose Connector on the Controller

Pump might have taken out either main controller or motor speed control.  To determine which you can check voltage at the motor control:

 

Select Spin/Drain cycle

 

Remove the 6 pin connector and the 10 pin connector from the motor control

 

Measure voltage from pin 6 on the 6 pin connector to pins 1, 2, 6, 9 or 10 on the 10 pin connector

 

If 120 volts present = Bad motor speed control

 

If less than 120 volts present = Bad main controller

check your wire connections at the motor, not just visually, give each wire a little pull to ensure it's actually connected. The wires at the motor do get loose and even break at the spade terminals.
