Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

1 Answer

Frigidaire Affinity Washer not emptying completely.

Recently our washer has decided not to completely get our clothes "dry" at the end of the cycles and the clothes come out "sopping" wet. But its only intermittently. It did it probably three times in a row about a month ago, then worked fine. Now, twice out of the past 10 times its been ran it has worked correctly. If i select the Spin cycle, it starts at 12 minutes, makes a noise like it is running, drops to 6 minutes and spins slowly a few times right then a few times left then gives the "ending" noise and goes off. When it does work correctly it spins like mad. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! also, no error message is being given.

    Take a look at this video. The filter is in the black boot from the tub to the pump.

    Ok, i did that. The filter was disgustingly stopped up. Put everything back together but i still have the same problem. It did the normal wash and rinse then hummed for about 5 minutes and never went into the "fast" spin. Then it did a couple slow spins and went off. Never an error message.

    OK, you will need the control board replaced. Here is the part to order.http://bit.ly/R99tEa

    Ok. Thanks. Also, what do you think about the door lock: http://bit.ly/11WWRRI ?

    In my experience if the door lock fails, you would get an error code. You can try to replace it first since it is cheaper and my supplier has a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy so you could return it if that is not the problem. Here is that part.http://bit.ly/WKuO3m

SOURCE: washer won't spin fast, only slow

tyr removing the lower acees panel from the uint , ther is a "button trap" located there to catch debris from entering pump assy, chances are its clogged and if it cant drain all the water it wont go into high speed spin, also you MUST use an HE detergent. HE detergent specifically designed for front loading washers

SOURCE: noise/not draining on spin cycle

I had that problem and it was the drain pump trying to drain but it coulsn't because it had lint, plastic, 3 underwires a looney some costume jewellery stuck in the pump. By the pump underneath you'll see a black plastic boot leading away from the pump. disconnect this and inside you'll find the lint trap and if you dig you'll probably find the culprit that stopping your pump from moving. Put it all back together and Voila!

Is it normal to have substantial amount water remaining in the washer after final spin?


Hey friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

It is normal to have water in the tub after your Frigidaire washer has completed the final spin cycle. The water that is in the tub is there to help prime the pump. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt

My frigidaire affinity front load washer buzzes and will not cycle what wouldcause that?


Good Morning Friend,

I see that your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000E, is buzzing and will not cycle. Some possible causes of this could be:

-Your washer is overloaded with clothes. Try taking some clothes out and restarting.
-There could be an article of clothing that might have slipped in between the gasket and the drum that might be stopping the drum from spinning. Check to see if there are any clothes that might be missing and possibly stuck between the drum and gasket.

If you have tried the above solutions and are still having trouble, I suggest giving your washer a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. After the time has passed, restore power and start a cycle. If your appliance is still buzzing and not spinning, I suggest that you contact your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine the cause of the buzzing and why it is not spinning. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Why does my washer do every thing but spin dry could a pressure swicth be bad on door?


Good Afternoon Dale,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000ES, not spinning your clothes dry. First, if the drum is not spinning at all, I suggest resetting your appliance by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. Once power is restored run a spin only cycle. If it starts spinning and the clothes are still coming out damp, try one of the following:

    1)Try changing the spin speed to a higher speed.
    2)Make sure that you have not overloaded your washer.
    3)Make sure that the wash load is not too small. If you are only washing a couple of items, try adding 1 or 2 similar items to balance the load.
    4)Try rearranging the load to allow proper spinning.
    5)Check the drain hose for any kinks. If it is kinked, straighten it.
    If you are still having trouble with your washer spin drying, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

    -Best Regards-

Frigidaire Affinity Washer making clicking sounds after power outage.


Sounds like either the control board or the timer is faulty at this point. Contact a professional so they can diagnose the unit fully and repair where needed.

Stinky washer


I had a similar problem with odor. I ran the washer on hot with a few cups of vingear in the detergent, bleach, and fabric softener trays and it helped a lot. Also, be sure to leave the door cracked open when you remove wet clothes, so the inside of the washer can air dry.

Hello,

You need the Factory Repair Manual for your Affinity Washer. There is alot that can go wrong with these machines and you will need to run the washer through its diagnostics.
