    Smile Frigidaire Front-Loader - No Spin - Code E47

    Model Number: GLTF2940ES0
    Brand: Frigidaire
    Age: 6-10 years

    Hello all.
    Bad week for Frigidaire appliances at the house. Have two stacked sets of front-loading washers/dryers... one washer and one dryer both went down in the last few days.

    Getting what appears to be (based on reading the forum) a fairly common latch / spin issue. I can get it to display an E47 error by doing the button combination after the cycle ends.

    My questions:
    - Am I going down the right path... a latch issue?
    - How do I access the latch? Down through the top, as I read in another thread? I would prefer to access it some other way if possible, as the washer currently is the lower of a stacked set. Unhooking/unstacking the gas dryer will not be fun.
    - My model number is GLTF2940ES0. Is this the part I will need?

    - Should I just go ahead and order the part before I tear everything apart? Do people have much luck just reseating the connections?

    Thx in advance!

    Hi,

    Yes, the error code E47 means your door latch/lock assembly is bad. The part you linked to it above in your first post is the correct one for your model.

    Yes, its easiest to get to it from the top panel of your washer, but since your dryer is stacked on top of it, you can try to remove it from the bottom access panel below your door. You'll need a strong flashlight or floodlight to see up in there.

    I received the replacement lock/latch assembly.

    Replacing from the bottom was pretty easy.
    - Removed the bottom access panel.
    - Removed the right bottom screw of the front panel. This allowed me to pull the front panel out about 2 inches, giving my arm lots more room.
    - I removed the two screws holding the lock/latch assembly in place. This allowed the assembly to drop 3-4 inches, providing far easier access to the connectors.
    - I was able to grip the assembly through the lock/latch holes and the rubber boot well enough to disconnect/connect the 3 wiring connectors.
    - I aligned the new assembly with the lock/latch holes, having someone else install the screws.

    The E47 is gone. The washer is spinning again.
    Many thanks Jake!

    We have a Frigidaire Gallery Series Front Loading washing machine, and we are getting an error code of E47. We believe the model # to be: J52AAC-0102. The washer will not do a final spin....it only tumbles until the cycle has ended. Any suggestions regarding parts? Do you believe it to be a defective control board? Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi,

    No that model# isn't good, click here to locate it.

    Its usually the door lock latch assembly thats the bad part for that error code.

    Read here: FIXED Frigidaire ATF7000ES, Wont run final spin, clothes still wet....

    There is a ohm test I will give you once you post your model#.

    Thanks,

    Here's how to test the door lock latch switch assembly:

    Remove the door lock assembly and measure the resistance of the PTC.

    The PTC is the wax motor(the piece that sticks out with the 2 metal terminal ends) on the door lock assembly. You will need an ohm meter to test that.

    If it reads 1500 ohms, then its fine, and the problem would be the control board.

    Here's the door latch switch assembly for your model you can order here if needed:

    Hey everybody,

    I have a similar problem to Aragosta. Frigidaire Model number GLTF2940FE0

    The error code is E47

    I'm wondering if I need to order this entire piece: Door Latch Assembly 131763202 Order now for same day shipping. 365 day return policy. RepairClinic.com

    or if I can just order the wax motor?

    Thank you for any suggestions you can give

    Hi Nicole,

    Its best to get the complete door latch lock assembly which includes the wax motor: Door Latch Assembly 131763202 Order now for same day shipping. 365 day return policy. RepairClinic.com

    I've never changed just the wax motor on any of the ones I've done.
