SOURCE: blinking lights and failure to start

Suggestion: 1 Press and hold down 'spin' & 'dry' buttons to unlock controls. 2 Have u overloaded the machine with clothes? Reduce load. 3 Try 'spin' only after putting the clothes. Then put off machine & continue with main cycle. Three suggestions here........ What is the clothes capacity of the machine; try to limit within capacity. Try the "spin only" function aft putting the clothes. Then put the machine off & continue with the main cycle.

SOURCE: Error / Pause Affinity ATF7000

I had the issue with my Affinity ATF7000 washer displaying err pause err pause .... clicking any button would give me 3 beeps and lights would flash but would get no real error message. Repair man wanted to replace entire computer for $250 plus service call rate. So by dumb luck I did this and got it working.


1. Unplug washer

2. Take off top (screws on back)

3. Unplug connector to the pressure sensor (carefully). Looking at the washer it is mounted to the right side near the front and looks round when looking at it from the top.

4. Plug in the washer and it should display E31. E31 is just saying it cannot communicate with the pressure sensor (which makes sense because you unplugged it).

5. Unplug washer and reconnect pressure sensor.

6. Put top back on and plug in washer.

7. Washer should work but E31 error will remain in memory so if you do call a repair man he may think the pressure sensor needs to be replaced. There is a way to clear error codes but I could not get it to work.


This is my theory on why it worked. The computer program on the washer is stuck in a loop that will not allow the washer to function. When we unplug the pressure sensor we give it a real error and it exits the loop it is stuck in. I am a programmer by day so this may not make sense to some.

It pauses with error code E20 and doesn't seem to drain or spin, could it be the filter is cloged?


The E20 error code is a class code that indicates a drain problem in the washer. This is consistent with the drain and spin problem that you are observing. To determine the exact error code, follow these steps:

Wake the machine by pressing any button

Wait 5 seconds

Press and hold the START and PAUSE/CANCEL buttons simultaneously

The exact error code (E21, E23 or E24) will be displayed.

If E23 or E24 are displayed, you will normally need to replace the control board due to a failed drain pump relay.

If the E21 code is displayed, I recommend that you follow these troubleshooting tips:

Check the washer drain to see if it is clogged.

Check the washer drain hose for a clog or restriction.

Make sure that the washer drain system complies with the installation instructions for the washer.

Try to gravity drain the washer by placing the drain hose in a bucket on the floor. If the washer will gravity drain, you may be able to

unplug the washer

and remove the bottom front service panel using the procedure in the image below. Arrange towels to catch residual water that may be in the washer and check the pump filter and drain trap for a clog or debris. If you find no clog or debris, then you may need to replace the drain pump. NOTE: You should not attempt this procedure unless you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely access and check the pump. Do not disassemble the drain pump hose if the washer is full of water.

Frigidaire does not have a "PT" technical error for any of their units. Please try to recall the error exactly by doing the following:

* Wake the washer by pressingany button.* Wait 5 seconds.* Press and hold the Start andPause/Cancel buttons simultaneously.* All LED's will go blank and after a few seconds the controlwill signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LED's. The controlwill repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause/Cancel buttons are pressed. A two second pausebetween repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify thecorrect error codes.

The washer stops half way through all cycles and displays "oL" .


Error oL means overload.
If the "oL" error code appears, the washer has been filled with a load that is too large for its capacity, causing it to drain.

*Remove some items from the washer and add more detergent since the previous amount will have drained with the water.
*Close the washer and press the START/PAUSE/Cancel button to remove error displayed and restart the cycle.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:

*Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
*Plug in washer or reconnect power.
*Re-select the cycle and press Start.

NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and the condition above has been checked, call for service.

Hope this helps.. :)

Error code e10


Communication failure =E10
1. Rotate the CYCLE SELECT KNOB to the 3 O’clock
position.
2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel
buttons simultaneously for (6) seconds.
3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and
Pause Cancel
buttons simultaneously for (4)
seconds.
4. Rotate the CYCLE SELECT KNOB to the 2 O’clock
position.
The STATUS indicator lights will flash the number of
times for the first digit of the code and the START indicator
light will flash the number of times for the second digit.
The code is obtained by counting the number of times
the lights flash. Example E24: the STATUS indicator
lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the START
indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The
STATUS indicator lights and the START indicator light
will start flashing at the same time. The control will then
pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.
Troubleshoot the problem by using the chart on next
page.
To move to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.
To clear code, press the Select botton.
To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the
Select and Pause Cancel buttons for (6) seconds to
reset.
if this does not work need to replace control
