    Default Fridgidar Washer Front Loader M: FTF2140FS1

    The washer stopped working today. If you press the start button, the door locks, but that's it. It does not proceed to fill. The water is on to both faucets. If you press cancel, everything stops and the door unlocks right away, no waiting. All other functions seem to work. If you change the water temp, it flashs the indicator lights. The delay lights up, so do the options for additional rinse, etc.

    Please help

    Hi,

    Tech sheet will be inside the washer in an envelope, check for a fault code....this here may also help.

    I also found a manual...linked here.

    You have the "GOOD" model(non-digital display). So an error code will be read with the flashing lights you count.
    Read page 10 of that repair manual.

    The only question I have (and it may be irrelevant) is that when I hold down the buttons to see the code, it states that if you continuously hold down the button the code will flash again and again...Mine does not. It goes from the 5 and 5 lights simultaneously to 3 red indicators and the start LED flashes. That's all. I do want to thank you again.

    I wouldn't -think- a motor overheating would stop the fill from occurring.
    Did the fills work in the diagnostic test?

    I did test the motor and the Ohms were anywhere from 6.5 to 8. The tech sheet states 4-6. I will plug it in again and recheck the code. I was going to purchase the motor this week.
