Question about Frigidaire Affinity FAFW3511KB 3.5 Cu. Ft. Electric Front Load Washer - Classic Black

1 Answer

The "washer" turns every now and then but for the must part it just sits there. I can hear the "motor" running as if it is going through different cycles of the wash. The spin cycle does not work because the water is sitting in the washing machine (not draining).. any suggestions?

Remove the back access panel. Remove the drain boot between the tub and pump. In that boot is the filter that will need to be cleaned. Also, while the boot is off, reach up into the tub and feel for any blockage. Keep me posted.

SOURCE: Frigidaire front load washer (LTF600ES1) Error E20

holla, Im not showing a E20 code on the tech sheet. There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys. If you see a different error code, post it. If not, I would suspect a clogged pump...Catriver.

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire affinity front loader washer

There is an auxiliary switch in the door lock and switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. This is a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during the spin cycle and the machine will not spin unless the switch is activated. The machine works except advancing to the spin cycle and this signifies that the auxiliary switch cannot be activated and the door lock and switch assembly is faulty. Replaced the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) to address the issue.

Disconnect power to the machine. Open the washer door then look for the retaining hoop securing the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Stretch the retainer spring of the door seal retaining hoop then remove it.

Carefully peel off part of the door seal from the lip of the door opening near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove enough of the door seal to gain access to the door lock and switch assembly.

Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.

Take the door lock and switch assembly out of the machine. Disconnect the electrical connections then connect it to the new door lock and switch assembly.

Put the new door lock and switch assembly back into position in the front panel and secure it with the securing screws.

Properly put the eased part of the door seal back over the lip of the door opening then secure it with the retaining hoop.

My washer stopped mid cycle and wouldnt drain or spin or anything. The error message is "nd". Can I fix it myself? thanks


Hi

ND=-no drain error.
Remove the back panel you will see the pump. Simply remove the pump and remove the obstruction that is keeping it from draining. Check for thongs, baby socks and sometimes hair pins or even screws can obstruct the water pump. There's going to be some water left in the pump and drain hose, so get a large towel ready. Remove screws attaching black piece (motor) to white piece (housing), pull out motor and clean the housing and motor impeller. Reverse steps to assemble it back together. If you don't hear pump running after completing the cleaning, you may need to check the wiring and/or replace main control board located inside the console. If the pump seems to be running but no water is being drained - replace pump.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

My maytag washer mah-24 have a "nd" msg. which mean "not draining" and now i cannot open the door to take the clothes out. pls. help.


Unlocking the door:
Turn on the washer, but don't start any wash cycles. After a few minutes, the door should unlock itself.

Troubleshooting the "nd" message:
"nd" means "no drain". Empty the (now unlocked) washer and fill the wash tub with just enough water to see a bit of water at the bottom of the tub. Run a drain cycle and check a) if it drains and b) if there are any unusual noises while it is draining. If either event occurs during the drain cycle, the drain pump may have to be repaired/replaced.

The ND error code on a digital Neptune front load washer. The ND code means 'No Drain' and it is probably just something caught in the pump. Sometimes this is a early sign of the pump going out or a control board issue.

You likely need the drain pump cleaned. Unplug and pull the washer out. Remove cover in back. The pump is attached to the washer's floor. Pinch off the hose from tub to pump. There's going to be some water left in the pump and drain hose, so get a large towel ready. Remove screws attaching black piece (motor) to white piece (housing), pull out motor and clean the housing and motor impeller. Reverse steps to assemble it back together. If you don't hear pump running after completing the cleanin, you may need to check the wiring and/or replace main control board located inside the console. If the pump seems to be running but no water is being drained - replace pump. for Maytag MAH5500B the part number is 25001052.

Wont go to wash


Do you hear any noise, like motor running or anything like that or does it just sit silently?  If it makes noise, it could be a motor coupler issue.  If it sit silently, it may only be a lid switch.  The lid switches do have a habit of breaking, which would allow it to fill, but not run.  No to expensive, and a fairly easy job to do.  Let me know further info or if you need any help or info.
