    Exactly the same problem! We've only done maybe 5 loads of laundry.

    I have the same problem except mine fills with water first, soaks the clothing then the door lock light goes out and the machine stops

    We have had the repairman from our dealer out TWICE for this problem!  It still is not fixed.  Bought the machine in Aug 08, and a month later it was failing! Still under warranty.  This time I am requesting that the dealer replace the machine.  I have bought other appliances from this dealer (Standard TV & Appliance) and been really happy with them, but this time, not.

If the washer fills with water, but will not start the wash cycle or spin, it is 1 of to things. the most common for frigidaire front load affinitys is the door lock assembly. I have had to replace numerous of these. if the door lock indicator is not on when it tries to wash, you need to replace the door lock assembly. if the door lock indicator is on, but wont wash, it is likly that you have a bad motor control board.

Get my frigidaire washer to start. The lights go on as soon as I close it. Usually I have to push the start button for this to happen.


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

It sounds like it could be a possible issue within your control panel or door lock assembly. If the door is not making that connection it is closed the washer will not start. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Not working


Good Afternoon James,

I see that you are still having trouble with your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000E, finishing and now starting a load, even after replacing the door lock.

I would start by making sure that your washer door is completely closed.

Next I would check to make sure that your washer controls are not locked. You will see a "LOC" code if the controls are locked. To get them out of the lock mode, press and hold the "Options" and "Select" buttons at the same time for 10 seconds.

If you are still having trouble you will want to give your washer a hard reset. You can do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes.

Once power is restored, if you are still having trouble with your appliance either not starting or not completing the cycle, I would recommend contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Door will not lock


Hello Bob - From what you have described it sounds like the door strike is not aligning with the door lock or the washer possibly has a defective door switch. I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately and properly diagnose the unit.

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.

Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't start


Try holding the 'options' & 'select' buttons together till the door lock button comes on. This is the child lock function. You can do it again for the lock to come off. Hold down for over 3 seconds
