ngafm at your service!

How old is the machine and what exactly does it do?
You may want to unplug the washer for 5 minutes and try rebooting the system and then when you replug it in see if it clears the problem and starts to clean!
Let me know what happens. I'll be here all night!

How do I put a clean cycle on for a frigidaire affinity high efficiency top load washer?

Hello Tracy, thank you for your post!

From what you have described you need help putting your Frigidaire washer into a clean cycle. In order to further assist you I would need your model number. You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the door frame of your washer. With that information I would be happy to further assist you. -Matt

The washer is leaving residue on my brand new clothes even when i adjust the amount of soap

Hey friend, thanks for your post!

Based off the information you have provided it sounds like there could be a buildup of soap within your appliance. I would recommend performing a clean cycle on your appliance which can be done by using a hot wash cycle and a cup of bleach. I hope that helps to some degree. -Matt

Frigidaire Affinity Front Load Washer wont drain.

If your pump had something in it, it wouldn't have had to clog it, but rather just stopped the internal spinning. My coworker removed a dollar bill from his water pump, and it fixed the problem he was having (same as you've described) and the water pump worked well after it was re-installed.
Worst case scenario, you reinstall it and it doesn't drain and you spend 40 or 50 bucks online for the part. I would reinstall and see if it works. I'd bet on it.

HE Washer leaves clothes smelling bad

ngafm at your service,
How old is the washer?
And how long has it been smelling bad?

Some front loaders over the years have had this problem and the worse used to be the Maytag Neptune!
This is what I tell my customers to do:
ngfam1 At your service!

It is normal for some frond load washers to have a little water left in the inner tub after the wash finishes!

I do tell my customers to run the washer once a week without clothes and with hot water and 1/4 cup of bleach. And then make sure to do only white clothes directly after wards as not to get a drop of beach water on a colored article of clothing!
Then leave the door open after every load when not in use!

If this will not help I would call frigidiare and tell them you must have it replaced that it is affecting your family because of the mold smell!
Believe me they will swap it out after all the money you spent on it, you deserve it! BUT REMEMBER MANY people have this problem with some front load machines!
if it's not new then perhaps the pump is faulty or the lint is clogging int he pump of the machine!

Let me know what happens!
