Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer
This is my third Fridgadaire affinity 6700 washer in three weeks. 1st one had a musty mold smell. The 2nd the door squeaked like a 100 year old door and the the spin cycle didn't work. Now on my third which I just had delivered today after the wash is complete there is standing water past the fill lines on the fabric softner/bleach dispenser. Is there a quick fix to this because if not I'm probably gonna just return the set and get my money back and get LG front loaders. Thanks
I cannot help you solve your problem with your Frigidaire, however DO NOT buy an LG washer unless you happen to be intimately involved with an LG employee!!
I purchase a $1200 LG washer 3 years ago. Until this year it worked very well. Then the bearing in the stator motor blew. This, mind you, is *still* under warrantee but I have been unable, even with the dubious help of LG, to get one of their "authorized" repairmen to come to my house and fix it. True, I live in a rural area, but it isn't like I'm hundreds of miles from any of the three repair services they named. Apparently LG doesn't pay them well for warrantee repairs because they all wanted more money and refused the work!
I am going to turn all of the information and communications I have had with LG (by email thank goodness!) to my State's Attorney's Office.
Good luck in getting this repaired.

Hello - There are several things that could cause the fabric softener to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is fabric softener? If it is fabric softener, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the fabric softener dispenser with water. The fabric softener dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.
When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the fabric softener solenoid is energized and water flows into the fabric softener dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and softener and water flow into the tub.
If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is pure softener you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the softener solenoid and a volt meter is required.
If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. **** will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. The instructions for cleaning the dispenser should be located on page 43 of the use and care guide that came with the washer.
If you don't have the use and care guide these instructions will help. Open the dispenser until it stops. In the left rear corner of the dispenser, there is a release that is labeled push. Press down on the push area and you can slide the dispenser drawer out.
Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.
To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the fabric softener compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out.
Hope this information proves to be helpful however if it is ineffective please contact a professional to move forward accurately.
