Hey friend, thank you for the post!

I see you are getting an 18h code on your front load washer. Normally any error code would have the letter E or F in it. I would suggest that stands for 18 hour delay start cycle, you could do a reset on your washer by disconnecting power to it or turning off the household circuit breaker for ten minutes and turning it back on. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt

    18h Matt you don't know what this means... Turning off the power is not going to change anything.. 18h is a design of the manufacturers error.. Replace the control main board seem to fix it for me.

    A brought in a repairman and he couldn't solve the problem. Didn't know what the 18H error code meant. Paid him the service fee and he suggested I buy a new washer. Woke up this morning and the washer was fine. a little over 18 hours maybe 48 but working. Matt might be on to something.

    . I also re-booted the circuit breaker twice when he was here. My suggestion wait it out when you the 18h message before you run down to the appliance store. if necessary a load of wash is only about $3.00 at your friendly local laundromat..

What is18h code on gltf2940es0?

Thank you for your post, Jeff Duvall!

I see that your Frigidaire washer is displaying an error code of "18h". However, it appears "18h" is an invalid error code. In order to clear any false error codes, let's attempt resetting your range. You can do this by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position for approximately ten minutes.

If resetting the power does not correct the issue, could you please inform me of the new error code or if your washer continues to display "18h". I look forward to assisting you. -Matt

1996 Ford Crown Victoria Shifting

when was the last time you had the fluid and filter changed? This trans should be done every 30,000. Is it shuddering as the torque converter locks up?

TSB 97-10-6 has a repair procedure for this ysmptom:

Vehicles equipped with an AODE or 4R70W transmission may experience a torque converter clutch shudder or vibration. This occurs under light to moderate acceleration above 56 km/h (35 mph) while in 3rd or 4th gear. This may be due to either transmission fluid breakdown and/or the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) calibration.

Verify that bulk fluid does not have moisture contamination. If suspected, use quart containers of MERCON®. Refill transmission with the proper amount of Motorcraft MERCON® Multi-Purpose Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) (XT-2-QDX).


Check emissions decal to verify vehicle has the latest calibration. If it does not, reprogram the PCM to new calibration level using Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS) or New Generation Star (NGS) Tester with May 1997 CD-ROM or later. Refer to the PCM Calibration Chart found at the end of this article for proper application.
