Frigidaire affinity front loading washer won't drain

My washing machine will do the washing cycle, with the drum spinning (during the wash). When it comes to the final spin, the drum won't spin. I tried various wash cycles and the same problem happens. I tried the spin only cycle, but the drum didn't spin, although the washing machine was making the noises it normally does. What should I do to fix this problem?

We got this washer two years ago.

    i have a very similar problem. When I start my washer in the spin only cycle, it rotates one way slowly then stops and rotates the other way slowly, after 3 or 4 minutes it stops and the washer shuts off without spinning. The error code is 47 which says that the machine doesn't think the door is closed but it is locked and there is not error for the door not being closed throughout the wash cycle. The trouble shooting for this is to remove the door lock and test it. If it is NG then replace it if it is good the the control board is NG. How do I test? Is this really the problem or is it in the water pump? Help

    I have the same problem, but I have 4 screws on the bottom of the washer and don't see where there are any more to take out to get the front panel off to see the pump. Can you point me in the right direction here?

    im having the same problem however,no error code. some water drained out but then...nothing. coincidentally jst washed some of those rubber back rugs my dad has always put them in the dryer BIG NO-NO it dries the backing out and causes it to break off in little pieces which are all over the inside of my washer now!!! coincidence? i think not. will try to clean out hoses. could be very likely clogged. will check back if this really works. i never thought there was anything wrong with the old kind of top loading machines. my last one lasted almost 20 years.technology, hmmmmm...

    Washing machine is about 18 months old and problem just started. Washer pauses on its own during cycle.

    I'm sure we have a few items stuck in the washing machine and it's making a lot of noise but working fine at this stage, how can we take the drum out to unblock the machine

    i tried to post earlier guess i needed to log on first we have and affinity also but no screws or removable panel in front (of course) so now the dryer needs taken out so the washer can be moved laundry room is jam packed with just washer and dryer. im hoping i can do something to get the water to drain out when i can get to the back of the washer. ugh this is exasperating.

I had this same problem today. I had the repairman come, which cost $95. he tells me it is the control panel. However I believe it is the door lock assembly from everything I am reading here. He tells me my checked out on his electronic reading machine. However, I know he was clueless and was not sure what he was doing. I still feel this is the door lock assembly. For the possible savings of the cost of the control panel $175 and the door lock assembly $50, I am going to still try the door lock assembly. Thanks Fixya

As stated above, it might be a faulty control panel. Perhaps it's possible for you to repair your machine on your own. Try checking the manual for the care of your washer:

Some error code there? This may sound strange but give it a try. Unplug the electric. Leave unplugged 2 or 3 minutes, then plug it back in. This allows the controls to reset. It worked alot cases.

Inicially I could think in some drain problem, check hose for any clogged or obstruction there, try to jump voltage to the pumo to confirm if this device is working. If this dont solve it, you will need to check timer; in this link could finr some tip test: applianceaid.com/direct.html#burnt_timer

Visit this site to identify some parts replacement that you could need: partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5152465&diagram (sample)

If you are not sure about how do it this job, or your machine is even under warranty, call the technician service.

Hope this helps.

My frigidaire affinity washer doesnt spin during the rinse cycle.


Hi javierc569,

Before the Spin Cycle should start, all water must be drained out of the machine. If it does not start, it could likely mean the Drain pump may be clogged. Please follow my below tip on the fix:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER...

If this does not help, the drain pump may be faulty.

Kind Regards

Frigidaire Affinity Glacier Stackable upright washer. Washer will not agitate and makes a buzzing sound from the pump that extracts water from the drum. Water collects and remains in bottom of washer.

My frigidaire fron loader will not spin during wash cycle but will spin when placed on spin


If the drain pump is working correctly and you can get it to spin manually, then the board is faulty. Had the exact same problem with an Lg front loader 40 min. ago.(have to replace the board.)
