SOURCE: frigidaire affinity washing machine pause error

Because our machine was new and covered under warranty, we had a maintenance person come out three times for this issue, but the only solution he could provide was to use less soap. Apparently, too much soap disrupts a sensor. So, if you let the machine run without adding any more soap, it will (theoretically) fix the problem. And this solution did work, to a certain extent.
Even though I started using much less soap, the problem is still persisting. For awhile, I was successfully able to fix it by running a few cycles without soap. Now, however, it just won’t work. Maybe others will have more success with this solution than we did.
At this point, the washer is no longer cover under warranty and our best solution is to buy anything but a Frigidaire or related Electrolux product.

If you just paused the washer and now displays a error try draining any existing water all out of the machine.Before re filling it see if you still get the error message.I'll be happy to guide you through this.

SOURCE: GE washing macine stops during the wash cycle

This is exactly what my machine was doing, as well. I fixed it by cleaning out the filter in front of the water pump.

Searching here, I found that you can remove the lower front panel (three screws along the bottom edge is all it takes) to get to the filter. With the panel removed, you'll see a round white plastic cover (about 3-4 inches diameter) that screws out. Get a bucket under the cover to catch the water that's in it (could be 2 quarts or more) and unscrew the cover.

The cover pulls out, revealing that is actually a screw-in plastic strainer. I found tons of coins, broken pens, paper clips, etc. in mine when I did this. A lot will be deep inside the black rubber hose that connects this filter housing to the washer drum. You can rake the stuff out with a bent wire clothes hanger. Shaking the black hose will help hurry the junk along and out of your machine. Screw the cover back on after the clean out and your machine should go back to normal.

Thinking about it, front loaders will have lots of small items flushed into the pump compared to top loaders. Coins you alway found in the bottom of the drum in a top loader, they all wind up in the filter of a front loader. And once it slow the drainage to a crawl the machine will shut down multiple times when it can't drain the water out completely, and it will never step up to it's max spin speed with all that water still in the drum.

MY FRIDGIDAIRE AFFINITY KEEPS PAUSING DURING CYLES DOSENT MATTER WHAT CYCLE I CHOOSE. IT STOPS ATLEAST 5 TIMES PER CYCLE AND SOMETIME WONT FINISH THE CYCLE. MODEL NUMBER FAFW3801LW3


Hi Brooke, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Often this happens because the washer door is not securely latch or the cycle has been interrupted. Try pressing "PAUSE/CANCEL" or "START/PAUSE" once to resume cycle. If the issue persists, try reprogramming the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If issue persists, then more than likely the unit has a faulty door latch, a communication error with the control board, or a potential wiring failure. You may wish to reach out to an appliance expert who is best equipped to pinpoint the exact problem, which can often save you funds and a headache.

Best regards!

Hello Mary Fortner - It means that the washer has been paused; the cycle has been interrupted. Either the "Pause/Cancel" button or "Start/Pause" button has been pressed. To resume wash - press "Pause/Cancel" or "Start/Pause" once. If this does not prove to be successful please turn the breaker to the unit off for 5 minutes. Then turn the breaker back on to the unit, and retry the cycle setting again.

Frigidaire front loading washer keeps pausing during sanitize cycle


Sounds like the unit might be sudsing up too much or something is not allowing the sensors to operate and advance to the next cycle. Contact your purchasing dealer and have them come out since it is so new and under warranty.

Need to know buttons to press to self clean.


Taken from the Use and Care guide:

To clean and freshen the washer, perform the System Clean Cycle. For best results use the System Clean Cycle once a month. To begin the cycle, press and hold the Spin Speed and Options buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds until the display changes to "CLn".

IMPORTANT
Items left in washer while performing the System Clean Cycle will cause a severe out-of-balance situation that could damage the washing machine.

REMOVE ALL ITEMS FROM WASH DRUM before filling the detergent chamber with one (1) cup of liquid chlorine bleach OR one (1) pouch of TIDE® WASHING MACHINE CLEANER. DO NOT use both. Press Start/Pause to begin.

If the System Clean Cycle is canceled or paused during the cycle, the washer will go through 2 rinse cycles to clean the drum of any residual bleach before unlocking the door.

Cheers!

Affinity Washing Machine, 3 months old, pauses during cycle. Does not give any error code. Have tried different cycles, eventually it will run the cycle. Doesn't happen with every cycle, yet. Switches...


Did you figure out this problem? I think these machines are JUNK! We purchased our first Frigidaire Affinity in April 2010 & by September it started ripping our clothes apart. Not every cycle. At first we thought it was the dryer but nope - it was the washer. Something to do with the drum. We had it replaced in October 2010. Then after the truck dropped off the replacement, I tried doing my first load of laundry. It lite up & did nothing. Something to do with the motor. Again, we had a 3rd machine replacement. I wanted to give up, get my money back & go buy something else but I wanted it to match my dryer so I was kinda stuck. Our 3rd machine is now going to pause constantly during a cycle. I've read up on it & tried various things such as less soap, checking the drain etc. & nothing has changed this problem. I'm calling the store on Monday & demanding my money back & they can take back the dryer too. I have a feeling this might be a bit of a fight but I am disappointed with the results of this machine. We've lost about $100+ in clothing from the first machine, plus all the down time in all 3 of these machines not working & having to worry about going to do laundry elsewhere.
