Default Frigidaire Washer turns on by itself
Model Number: GLTF2940FS2   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Frigidaire Model GLTF2940FS2 washer. For the last couple months it has started turning on by itself. All the lights come on as if I was trying to start a load and the "Cycle Signal" light flashes along with a beep about every 30 seconds. The washer works fine otherwise. I just unplug it when not in use. Any idea what's wrong and how much it will cost to fix it?

Default help!

My frigidaire GLTF2940ES2 washer started making a sulphur/burning type of smell after the cycle started...then would fade away.. The cycle would run as normal. This has been going on for probably over a month.

This morning, I wake up and hear the unit beeping. I look and it's on and has an ERR message beeping on and off and looks like 'someone' is punching the bottoms. I try to turn it off but that doesn't work. So I run a normal wash cycle. Throughout the cycle, the ERR message would come on and beep. Cycle ended, washer shut off. ...but then turned itself back on with the ERR message again.

I unplugged the washer and took off the back panel. Can't see much.. the back belt looked ok.

help? Wonder if it is the control unit?
