Frigidaire LTF2940ES3 top load washer

3 posts in this topic

Our 4 year old Frigidaire LTF2940ES3 front load washer has decided it will no longer participate in the spin cycle. There are no error codes displayed. In the "normal" wash mode, the display screen goes blank and the unit shuts down with 13 minutes remaining in the cycle. In the "Drain and Spin" mode, the display screen goes blank and the unit shuts down with 7 minutes remaining in the cycle. The pump works fine, and the suction line (and coin trap) is clear. Would this behavior similar to the door switch and motor brush failures, or have we spawned an entirely new spin deficiency syndrome?

If the drain is clear then you might want to check the aux spin switch inside the door switch.

It Tumbles OK, and drains the Water out, but won't Spin ?

Diagnostic Test:

The diagnostic test is performed by using the Program Knob.

To START THE TEST:

• On digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Touch Up.

(NOTE: If the model has a timer dial that can be rotated 360°, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.

• Press Pause Cancel to turn off LEDs.

• Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Pause Cancel buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release buttons.

1. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LEDs in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality.

2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment.

3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment.

4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment.

5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will activate.

6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened.

7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble.

8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and spin (leakage test).

9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. The drain pump and door lock solenoid will activate and the

washer will operate in high spin. SAFETY WARNING: If power is removed during this test, the door can be opened.

To prevent injury, DO NOT put your hands inside when the tub is rotating.

10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code.

Exiting Diagnostic Mode

There are two options for exiting the Diagnostic Test mode and returning the washer to normal operation:

a ) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord OR

b ) Turn the program knob clockwise 2 or 3 clicks after the Start Position. Press Options and Pause Cancel buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle LEDs appear.

If a situation arises where you cannot exit the Diagnostic mode as described above and the bank of 5 LED’s on the right end remain ON regardless of Program Knob position,

a combination of pushed buttons may have caused the control to enter a special factory test mode.

Disconnect power to reset the control to return washer to normal operation is this occurs.
