First, remove the drain boot from the machine and see if there is an article of clothing between the basket and the tub jamming it up. If that is clear, you will need to replace the drum assembly spider, and shaft. It comes all together in a kit. Here is the kit to order.

First, you put some bleach or tide washing machine cleaner inside. Then you make sure the washer is on and hold the spin speed button and the options button down at the same time for 10 seconds. You will see "Cln" appear on the display screen. Hit start and you are golden.

My affinity front load washer drum will not move after the water goes in nothing else happens.


The belt needs tightening, remove the back, you will see a belt which goes around the drum & back to the motor, the motor has an adjustment feature that by moving it away from the drum tightens the belt, there should be no more than 8mm deflection either side of the belt when it is adjusted correctly, when this is done replace the back & your machine should spin & wash, If it does not after this simple fix then you either need a replacement panel (Electronics) or a replacement motor

How do you open the Frigidaire affinity dryer bc i think the belt is broken


If the belt is broken dryer will not tumble, you can turn drum and should be resistance to turn, if turns easy then belt is broken. This is a difficult repair. If you can't see how to open dryer you won't be able to replace belt.

Drum wont turn but the moter does


Hello Deanna - This particular issue could be caused by a variety of reasons. I would suggest trying the following steps:

1) Verify a circuit breaker isn't tripped

2) Advance the timer control dial slowly 360 degrees-

If the washer starts spinning, then that means the motor and drive belt are fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.

If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken, replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.

3) Visually inspect the lid safety switch- Is it loose or cracked? If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.

4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.

Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer won't stop spinning with 1 minute on timer- it continues until I hit cancel. I don't like to babysit a machine but have to make sure it doesn


If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.

When i turn it on, it buzzes and doesn't start


Sounds like the control board won't allow the motor to begin the cycle. Contact a professional for an accurate diagnosis.

Washer quit working in middle of cycle, won't even come on


Look under the washer. Is there a little pile of black rubber shavings? With the heavy load, you may have broken the basket coupler between the motor and the drum. Try turning off the selector, and move it one click at a time towards the end of the cycle and turning back on. Hopefully it will drain for you. If the coupler is the problem it is inexpensive to fix. Some also call this part the "clutch". It kind of looks like a hockey puck with six holes in it... three for the motor, three for the clothes drum.s-l225.jpgs-l225.jpg I attached pictures of a couple types. This part is a common problem when you put a heavy load in, because the rubber takes more stress.

Wont spin even though you hear motor and drum is freely movable in both directions


My guess, if you can hear the motor spin, is a broken drum belt. Take the top off with two screws in the back and you should see the drive belt on the top of the drum. If not, you have the answer! Good luck!
