Stupid washing machine...

I've had a Frigidaire Front load washer (model # FTF2140FS) for about a week now and since last night it's been acting strange. When there is nothing in the washer, it beeps and the lights flash, with the START button blinking. I press the CANCEL button and it shuts off for 1-2 minutes and then starts blinking and beeping again. I've tried holding down the cancel button and pressing it 2 or 3 times but no avail. Any advice?

  • I would try running it through a cycle with it empty & see if it fixes itself

  • Have you tried unplugging it for a minute? I'd give that a shot. It might be kind of like when your computer freezes, and you have to push and hold the button down to turn it off and restart it, and then it's fine. Maybe if you unplug it, it'll reset itself.

  • Did you purchase it new? If you did, return it.
    If not, do a search online to see if anyone else has had problems like yours and if they list a fix.
