Okay, I am sure you have heard this one before but I can’t find a clear answer on the net. I have a Frigidaire LTF2140fs2 front load washer.  My wife noticed clothes wear still soaked. I took the filter out of the drain hose, cleared it and put it all back together. I put in drain/spin mode and I heard a loud HUMMMING noise followed by a little water draining then nothing. I cleared the board,  then forced the machine into the drain/spin cycle it paused for 2 mins like it was wanting to drain, then It spins and came to an end. However the control board stayed in final spin and lock position (control board lights). I had to cancel load to open door and noticed water still in barrel. I cleared the machine and put it back on normal wash load and attempted to run a full wash. The water kicked on then off immediately, the board clicked and went to no spin and lock. So I don’t know if I have a control board issue or if the drain pump and water in barrel are not allowing me to run another load.

 

Hope this makes sense if not I can try to attach video or pictures.

Update: I put washer into Diagnostic mode and every time I change the cycle selection knob it makes a loud grinding noise. I turned the knob 9 spots and got 5 led lights blinking. Still lost.

Has this Washer worked OK for you up till now at this location ?

Have you cleaned out the Pump ?

Drain Pump is behind the front bottom plate.

Raise the front of the washer and insert a two by four under the front of the washer.
Remove the (2) screws holding the panel to the washer base.

Pull the panel down and out.

Yes I removed the pump and was all clear. Was a little hard to rotate the impeller. Hooked all back up and started the above issues. Yes has been working perfect for 4 years at this location.

sounds like a bad Pump

may need to check for 120v AC at the Pump when it should be running
