Frigidaire washer can't access diagnostics
« on: May 09, 2011, 08:15:55 PM »

New to this brand. Blinking lights on panel. Cycle indicators change with knob setting, but get short beeps when trying to start machine. Found tech sheet but controller would not respond to pushing start and pause/cancel buttons at same time, so I can't get error codes. Replaced door solenoid with used spare but didn't help, suspect controller, but am wondering if I'm missing something. Just realized; does this unit have a child lock?

Model FTF2140ES1

yes there is a child lock too lock and unlock
options and select both at the same time until it beeps

to access diagnostic
Wake the washer by pressing any button.
2. Wait 5 seconds.
3. Press and hold the START/PAUSE and CANCEL
buttons simultaneously. As long as the buttons are
held, the failure code will appear in the display as
an E followed by two numbers, a number and a
letter or two letters. The control will beep and the
Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, and Final Spin indicator
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!
