GLTF2940ESO Won't turn even after clearing pump and hoses

GLTF2940ESO Front load machine started by filling and spining very slowly two or three times..and then throwing error code EFO. I refered to this and other sites and followed the advice of clearing the drain hoses and pump....but now it won't spin at all. There is a chance the motor got wet when i removed the pump and hoses...but it is not throwing any codes...just counting down the minutes of the cycle without ever starting.

EFO = Filter Blocked (low flow) and it is accessible from the bottom front of the machine.

1. there is a blockage in the filter or drain hose.takes too long to drain out.
2. over dosing of powder or liquid. again can cause an air lock in the pump which slows the drain pump down.

Check the filter and drain hose and test again. this fault will only come up at the end of a cycle.
You do not need to reset the machine to get rid of the fault code as this is automatically deleted.

Run an empty load with no detergent in an attempt to get rid of the code.

Asko 620 washer won't drain well with heavy load


Washing machine won't drain

When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Overloading your washing machine can cause items to be swept into the space between the inner and outer tub, leading to clogs in the drain hose or pump. These clogs may be the reason for why your washing machine won't drain. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump:
Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

Machine stopped mid cycle, won't spin or did not drain, no error code displayed, tried unplugged and restart. no luck


next time send the model number,open the door,look around the opening where you put the clothes in and you'll see a tag with the model and serial numbers,it has to drain first before it will spin,check the pump,get a shop vac and vac out all the water,remove the bottom panel and look at the pump,if the middle of the pump can be removed turn it counter clockwise slowly until the water starts to leak out and vac it up until all the water is out,then remove the middle part of the pump and clean it out,if the middle doesn't come out remove the hoses and check the pump to see if anything is in it and check the hoses,after you remove any debries you find fill it with some water and put it into a drain to see if the water drains,if it doesn't you can check the pump again to make sure you cleaned everything out,stick your finger in and fell around the impellar to make sure it's clear,if it's clear replace the pump.usually an error code will come up but if it fills and agitiates but won't drain i would start at the pump.hope this helps.

My washer fills with water on starting a load but then it does nothing won't start spining to empty water


If the machine loads ups with water and does not stop then the water level sensor is fautly . But if the inlet valve stops on fill up but there is no spin of the motor or thereafter there is no spin/rinse or drain then the program controller / drain valve/pump must be checked.

Already took off pump & cleared out $12 in change but still will not pump all water out or spin out. can hear pump running but think the damage has already been done. would it be pump or pressure...


If the washing machine won't fill up, make sure that the water supply valves are turned on. Next, make sure there are no kinks in the supply hoses that run from the supply valves to the washing machine. If nothing is obstructing the hoses, you may have another controls issue.

Several of the washing machine controls are also responsible for the washing machine not draining, continuing to fill or filling too slowly. If the washer doesn't want to drain or stop filling, the issue could be the pressure switch. When water enters the machine, water also fills a tube in the pressure switch. When the air pressure reaches a certain point, it triggers a switch that will stop the machine from filling. Locate this pressure switch on your machine and look for damage. If you have a multimeter, use it to find any electrical issues. If there is no reading, the pressure switch needs to be replaced.

Not spining and water not draining


Access the water pump and look for plugged drain hoses or a plugged filter as well as a slipping impeller on the pump shaft--or even a dead pump motor. Spin usually will not occur if there is a high water level in the machine. Try draining the tub into a bucket, then see if it will go into spin mode. Hope this helps!

Frigidaire washer starts to fill with water then stops


That is not the solution.

Start the machine and immediatly press the "Start" and "Pause/cancel" button at the same time. Then you will get and ERROR code. Look on the cheat sheet packed with the machine to find out what is really wrong. That will give you the real answer.

After water drains, it slowly comes back and fills in the drum over time.


Use the attached video to show you how to access the inside of the machine.Ignore the other parts other than access and re-assemly.

Clothes wet and soapy after cycle compleded ,mostly when towels are washed.


Eiterh your machine is not spining properley or you simply need to clear out your drain filter.... or it could be the pump im thinking your filters is slightly blocked..

fill the machine with water and lower the waste pipe to ground level and if the water trickles out slowly then its a blockage if not then its the pump...

if its not the pump then its the carbon brushes on the motor....

follow this procedure.. hope it helps any problems let us know
