    Default Frigidaire washer LTF2940ES3 beeping on and off

    Model Number: LTF2940ES3
    Brand: Frigidaire
    Age: 6-10 years

    I've seen some similar posts and want to verify for this washer. When off it beeps and flashes on. We've been leaving unplugged. Now when washing it runs fine but lately the lights will go off for a bit then beep on, and seems to have a hard time finishing cycle, but it does finish. During a recent run, the letter J would flash in the display.

    Control board here too?

    On that model line, the control signals the failure code by flashing the five indicator lights of Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin and Control for the first number or letter after the E and the Start indicator light for the second number or letter after the E. When a failure occurs, the washer stops or pauses and the control beeps and flashes the five indicator lights to tell you that a failure has occurred. To stop the flashing and beeping, touch the Pause Cancel button. The error code remains stored in the control but once the problem is corrected, it does not affect the operation of the washer. If the failure is something that you can correct (such as the water faucets being turned off), the washer will operate normally the next time it is started.

    To recall an error code:
    • Wake the machine by pressing any button
    • Wait 5 seconds
    • Press and hold the Start and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously
    • All LED's will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LED’s. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons are pressed. A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.

    The five indicator lights of Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin and Control will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code and the Start indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit. Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The five indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The five indicator lights and the START indicator light start flashing at the same time. The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code as long as the two buttons are pressed and held.

    Note: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine:
    A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15

    A couple of updates. This washer actually has the LEDs that can give an actual code. But, beyond that, last night, the display panel finally gave up the ghost. It got to the end of a wash and the whole machine and display would go dark and then come back on in 20 seconds or so... over and over and over. The last minute of the wash took 30 minutes.


    We usually leave the unit unplugged (as others have mentioned) as it will come on by itself and beep... etc. We plug in when we want to wash and that usually works fine.


    Now, when we plug it in and try to turn it on, nothing happens.


    Further advice? If this is a control board, I'd like to ensure the proper model (as your previous reply suggested the model number didn't indicate the LED readout. Perhaps because it's from Lowes?) Then, if it's likely the cause, I'd like to find out how to get it and install. I can usually do these types of repairs.


    Thanks in advance

    Further info. I was able to coax it to try to run a 13 min drain/spin to dry off what didn't finish last night. It got close to the end and it appears again that power to everything has turned off. Then, after a few minutes, it wakes up.

    I hit cancel to try to get the door to unlock, as it was about done. Of course that didn't unlock the door. Then it went away again. the next time it woke up I pressed Start and Pause/Cancel at the same time, thinking that might show an error code.

    The display shows E61. Do you know what this code is? I tried to find a manual for a similar machine, but it had no E61.

    I tried to do a diagnostic from the similar manual and after verifying that all the panel lights responded as they should, turning to the first position gave E97. Also the start column lights and the pause lights beeped together 7 times followd by just the pause lights flashing and beeping twice.

    I can't find anything for E61 or E97. Does your machine have a digital display on the console?

    On the digital display models turn the Program knob to start position, Touch Up. Press Pause/Cancel to turn off the LED’s. Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Options and Pause Cancel buttons until LED's start sequentially chasing, then release buttons. All the LED's will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LED's in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality.

    Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment.

    Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment.

    Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoid swill activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment.

    Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will activate.

    Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened.

    Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble.

    Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and spin (leakage test).

    Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. The drain pump and door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin. SAFETY WARNING: If power is removed during this test, the door can be opened. To prevent injury, DO NOT put your hands inside when the tub is rotating.

    Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code.

    There are two options for exiting the Diagnostic Test mode and returning the washer to normal operation: Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord OR Turn the program knob clockwise 2 or 3 clicks after the Start Position. Press Options and Pause Cancel buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle LED's appear.

    Digital. I found another manual, once again not exactly the same model, but it had E67, (I think the E61 was really E67 and I was looking down on the display cutting off the top of the 7) as incorrect micro-processor voltage. E97 was console control problem. It looks like the control board or perhaps a power supply or connection to me, BUT I can't find the codes for my model (original Post) and I really have no experience troubleshooting this equipment.

    I think we crossed posts. I found that procedure and used it to get the E61 (probably E67 as I was looking down on the display) and E97 codes. I received the the codes when I flipped from the home position to the next one.

    E67 is: Input voltage on microprocessor is incorrect. E97 is: Console control problem. The solution for both error codes is to replace the main control board:
