Frigidaire Affinity Washer beeps & won't spin

Hi - My front-loading Frigidaire Affinity is beeping continually and won't spin the water out of the basket. It is only about two years old. I had just run a heavy load of blankets when this started happening. I tried unplugging it, and getting it to start again in a different cycle - such as "spin only", but it shuts itself off immediately. I can't get it to start again for more than a couple seconds, and then it just flashes and beeps. I see others have asked about similar issues with this washer, but I havne't found any solutions. Hoping someone knows out there...

Thanks!

    My washer is only a year old and it won't drain all the water out and it flashes E20. It won't spin, it just makes a noise like it's draining or trying to spin but nothing is happening. THIS MACHINE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    I have a 6000 model and same problem It started where i couldn't do heavy loads- no more than 4 towels on a towel load and you know, i bought the darn thing because I was told it was great for larger loads and could handle up to 8 or 9 towels! But now, it won't spin. Runs until the spin cycle, beeps three times a time or two as if the complete cycle has run, and no error code ever displays. However, the clothes are still soaked. I've cleaned out the trash basket and checked hoses and the pump. Too many people seem to be having this same problem on all different websites- I think these machines have some manufacturing problem. Going to call a repair man tomorrow and if its too expensive, will get rid of this one and get something that WORKS! Haven't been able to do laundry in almost a week- never would have paid $1000 for a machine if i had known i would keep having issues with it. This is the second time this has happened.

    Water won't drain and the beeper keeps going off.  Nothing looks clogged.  Can't find the pump.  Where do you open this machine up?

    So, I have the same washer and mine flashes E20 and i accidentally put a diaper in with a big load so I am assuming it is clogged. Where is the filter? I don't have a manual.

The drain filter is clogged. I had the same problem. There is a filter inside the "drain boot" (black) that comes from the drum to the drain pump. Mine was completely clogged with money, lint, etc..

Picked up a free Affinity 6000 & found unit would not spin. Found the door safety switch contact spacing that was supposed to close when the wax motor heated up was too wide and the travel of the wax motor plunger was inadequate. Adjusted the stationary contact closer to the contact that is moved by the wax motor to ensure this N.O. door safety switch contact now makes when the wax motor heats up. Cost for repair $0.00 !!!
The "wax motor" is a small white rectangular plastic device with 2 1/4" male wire terminals. It has printing on it with its 120vac current rating. Inside the door lock/safety switch this wax motor heats up when 120vac is applied by the washer controller during spin cycles. As this wax motor heats up it acts much like a automotive engine coolant thermostat and the expanding heated wax pushes out a plunger which engages the door lock mechanism & pushes together the previously mentioned switch contacts that signals the washer controller that it is safe to spin the washer drum at high speeds.

I had the same problem. Filter in the drain boot was full of coins($1.37), lint and a ring my daughter lost a year ago. The boot was a pain to get to. Once I got to it, getting the hose clamps off was much easier than putting them back on. I replaced one of the hose clamps with a ring clamp from the hardware store. Poor design. Coins and such shouldn't be able to transfer past the wash drum but they do and it causes a problem which you nearly need a professional just to clean a filter.

The filter inside the drain line was full.I chose to not put mine back in and just check our pockets alittle more carefully.

Stay away from using Purex 3 in 1 detergent/fabric softener/anti-static cloths.  Two worked their way into my drain line, causing the poor drainage and slow spin problem.

Another reason this happens is the door lock sensor. This happened to me- I cleaned out the trash basket, the drain boot- everything. The door was locked- but for some reason the computer wasn't recognizing that that door was locked so it would not go into the final spin cycle. Called a repairman who replaced the door lock and the machine is good as new. I can even do really heavy loads again. thank goodness!

I read your post about fixing your Frigidaire front loader. You stated you relocated the "wax motor" for the door lock. Could you please explain how and where to do this? My washer is giving an E10 code and will not do the final spin so that my clothes are completely soaked. Thanks in advance!

After you clean out the filter, check to see that nothing is stuck in the pump impeller as well. You may have to take the motor apart

When tub drains beeps twice and won't continue


Hi - Does the drain pump make a humming noise as well? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if what pump out. Supposing that it does not, I would suggest contacting a professional to diagnose either the pump or timer.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.
