Question about Washing Machines

Washer just shuts down

We have a Frigidaire front loading washer (ATF6000ESO) that keeps shutting off automatically. Some times at start-up, sometimes during washing. Lights just go off and unit either does not start or stops in the middle of washing. I have tried shutting off main power for 30-min. and it still happens. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks. Keith

    Add a CMy washer doesn't have a rinse only cycle to try as you suggest. It does have a spin only and yes that cycle works fine. Water drains fine. None of the other cycles will start up. Lights just blink off and unit shuts down. No drain noise. Any other ideas?

If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.

First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.

Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.

I HAVE A FRIGIDAIRE AFFINTY LAFW7000LWO WHEN DOOR IS SHUT THE DOOR SENSOR STARTS


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the door sensor goes off on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# LAFW7000LW0, when the door is shut. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My Front Load Affinity washer shuts off after a few minutes


Good Afternoon Lori - Thank you for your post! Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. If you noticed a humming noise, then once again it could either be a clogged drainage hose or pump that needs to be cleaned, or it could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Frigidaire Front Load Washer Model LTF2140FS1. Put clothes in washer, fill detergent dispenser, close it, shut the door, set my cycle hit start then the door lock clicks, clicks again, panel shuts off....


Make sure that the switch for the door is closing properly at all times. If not, unit will not start up or will shut down while operating because the switch has opened.

no the impellar can not be reattached i will not hold and will come off again.I have tried to repair them before and they just do not hold. so you do have to replace the whole pump.
