Frigidaire front load washer wont spin cycle
« on: May 15, 2010, 10:06:12 PM »
I have a frigidaire GLTF2140AS0 front load washer.  It will turn slow and do its normal deal until it gets to the point where it spins fast. I have took off the rubber accordian style hose in the bottom of the washer. I removed 1.19 and 5 hair pins and inspected the pump.  The pump works and spins fine.  I cleaned out the rubber boot and checked for obstruction.  nothing in the way.

Trying to figure out what else can cause this.  it's being a pain in the hind end and i'll tell ya the inside of those panels are the sharpest things i've seen !  WOW WEE

that partial model isn't an affinity   those models are 6000  and 8000

your model is probably   GLTF2140AS0   thats the closest model number i can think of that resembles your partial numbers


a bad speed board will also not spin with the belt off

remove the belt and see if the motor speeds up to full speed or not, this can be a lil hard to determine if you dont know what you are looking/listening for

run it once with belt on then belt off and see if you can tell the difference

also on the 2140 good/better models(as frigidaire calls them) the harness to the motor control board is quite often routed in the wrong spot, this allows it to be damaged by the tub bouncing off balance

from the back of the machine, rock the tub assembly towards the motor board, pay attention to where the tub would hit the motor board, if there are any wires in this spot you must examine them very closely to see if they are broken or crushed(the wire can break inside the insulation(but you will see a crush mark))
