Frigidaire Washer wont do high speed spin.
« on: October 13, 2009, 08:18:23 AM »
I have a Frigidaire Gallery GLTF2940EE0 washer that will not do a final spin of my wash.  I have replaced the pump; thinking this was the problem.  This did not fix it.  It will drain the water; as I have made sure to blow out all the lines and clean the trap.  Speaking to a couple of appliance guys; I am almost convinced the motor control board is the problem.  Before I spend more money on this washer on parts that I do not need, I am asking for your advice to my dilemma.

Thanks

Nick

Have you looked thet the enclosed envelope inside the lower panel? It tells you how to check the motor and control nine ways to Sunday :)

Besides, any part purchased thru this websites links can be returned if it does not solve the problem, so your concerns about  buying something you don't need are moot.

I have purchased a new motor control switch for my washer.  It did not fix my problem.  After going thru the diagnostic test again; I am gettin E47 error code; which is the water inlet valve.  Will this prevent the washer from the high speed spin or does a bad door lock switch sound more reasonable?

E47 could mean a valve problem. Suppose the machine is not filling with cold water in the final rinse....would that not prevent the cycle from continuing? See if you get cold water in the main wash.

The door lock is checkable...did you use the tech sheet to do any OHm checks or are you without a meter?

JUST GOT A SIMILAR UNIT WITH THIS SAME PROBLEM FIXED. REPLACE THE DOOR LOCK ASSY.  DONT BOTHER TO CHECK AS TECH SHEET INSTRUCTS, MY WAX MOTOR OHMED ACCORDING TO SPEC (1325 OHMS), BUT WAS NOT OPERATIONAL.  DOOR LOCK ASSY. WILL COST <$40.00 INCLUDING SHIPPING. AFTER READING A NUMBER OF POSTS ABOUT THIS PROBLEM, I HAVE YET TO SEE ANYONE REPLACE CONTROL BOARDS AND FIX THIS. FRIGIDAIRE SHOULD INCLUDE AT LEAST ONE EXTRA LOCK ASSY. WITH EACH NEW UNIT SOLD AS UNRELIABLE AS THESE HAVE PROVEN TO BE.
