just wondering….i have somewhat the same problem…..wash cycle starts and then all of a sudden clicks off….the timer still runs through its cycles but nothing is happening…then once in a while it clicks back on! i shut off the timer/cycle knob (pushed it in to stop it)came back about 10 minutes later, pulled it back out and it ran through the whole cycle no problem! i have a load in the washer right now and i heard it click off….2 minutes later clicked back on! what is going on?

I have a similar problem with my Frigidaire front load washer. The model # is FTF2140FS1. Right now, the drum has water in it and is loaded with a medium size load of clothes. The knob is set to drain/spin, the electronic start button is flashing but will not start the washer. The door is unlocked, but securely closed. Detergent tray is also closed. Mr. Samurai, please help! Thank you.

No drain, no spin– that’s the rule with front loaders. Start by clearing the coins and bobby pins from the pump cleanout. I wrote a haiku just for you:

Front-Loading washer,
drain pump hummms but will not drain.
Gookus stuck in pump.
