Unhappy front loader drum jams
Model Number: LTF2140ES0   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My front loader washer drum hangs up now and then. I can force it to turn and feel something move free maybe a sock or something got through the seal and is on the outer side of the drum getting caught. It will happen again and again after I turn it mannualy and then run it. Where do I begin to open the unit. Front Back Top etc.
Any help would be appreaciated

You will need to remove the tub to pump drain hose to fish out any stuck item. You might find the wire clamp imposable to get back on, so you will need to buy a adjustable clamp to replace it.

You remove the torque screws under the bottom front kick panel, then remove panel.

I forgot, all Frigidaire front loaders have a access panel in the back. Warning!!, Before reaching in, use duck tape on the very sharp edges back there, will save cuts and prevent foul language around Christmas!

trying to open the frigidaire front loader to look for stuck item
The back pannel doesnt give me access to see between inner basket and drum.
Should I try front pannel?

You can't gain access to the inside of the tub, all you can do is remove the drain hose and fish out anything there

I think I got it. Before I opened it I ran a dry spin and heard a good couple of thumps. Shut it down and opened it. Got the drain clamp off and drain hose. A sock made its way to the drain. I was right there, I just plucked it out and put drain hose clamp back on. doing a test wash right now.
Thanks for your help.
