    Brand new washer. First load in. It paused at 28 min (on 30min cycle), I hit start and started again. Then it paused at 26 min, so when I went down because I thought it was down it had shut down again.

    Thanks "onthejob", I finally tried what you suggested. The washer paused right from the beginning and after, so it was during the fill up cycles. I turned the tap on a bit more to allow more pressure and presto, no more pauses.Thanks again, much appreciated.

    I have the same problem with the Frigidaire Affinity. But it doesn't do it all the time. About 40% of the time it pauses during washing. Usually during the water filling cycles. And when I hit the start button again, to resume. It starts filling the water, but at the same time, I can hear water trickling down the drain. So, do I really have a water pressure problem, or is the washer malfunctioning?

MY FRIDGIDAIRE AFFINITY KEEPS PAUSING DURING CYLES DOSENT MATTER WHAT CYCLE I CHOOSE. IT STOPS ATLEAST 5 TIMES PER CYCLE AND SOMETIME WONT FINISH THE CYCLE. MODEL NUMBER FAFW3801LW3


Hi Brooke, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Often this happens because the washer door is not securely latch or the cycle has been interrupted. Try pressing "PAUSE/CANCEL" or "START/PAUSE" once to resume cycle. If the issue persists, try reprogramming the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If issue persists, then more than likely the unit has a faulty door latch, a communication error with the control board, or a potential wiring failure. You may wish to reach out to an appliance expert who is best equipped to pinpoint the exact problem, which can often save you funds and a headache.

Best regards!

My washer keeps pausing during the cycle


Hi claire64 - Usually when "PAU" displays on the screens, it indicates that the unit thinks that the door is not securely latch when you started the cycle, or the cycle has been interrupted. Try pressing "PAUSE/CANCEL" or "START/PAUSE" once to resume washer. If proves to be ineffective, try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes, restart unit and resume cycle. If fault reoccurs, then it typically means that the unit either has a faulty door latch assembly or a communication error from the control board. Since there are cost differences in parts, it is always a good idea to have a service tech properly diagnose your appliance.

Hello Mary Fortner - It means that the washer has been paused; the cycle has been interrupted. Either the "Pause/Cancel" button or "Start/Pause" button has been pressed. To resume wash - press "Pause/Cancel" or "Start/Pause" once. If this does not prove to be successful please turn the breaker to the unit off for 5 minutes. Then turn the breaker back on to the unit, and retry the cycle setting again.

Did you figure out this problem? I think these machines are JUNK! We purchased our first Frigidaire Affinity in April 2010 & by September it started ripping our clothes apart. Not every cycle. At first we thought it was the dryer but nope - it was the washer. Something to do with the drum. We had it replaced in October 2010. Then after the truck dropped off the replacement, I tried doing my first load of laundry. It lite up & did nothing. Something to do with the motor. Again, we had a 3rd machine replacement. I wanted to give up, get my money back & go buy something else but I wanted it to match my dryer so I was kinda stuck. Our 3rd machine is now going to pause constantly during a cycle. I've read up on it & tried various things such as less soap, checking the drain etc. & nothing has changed this problem. I'm calling the store on Monday & demanding my money back & they can take back the dryer too. I have a feeling this might be a bit of a fight but I am disappointed with the results of this machine. We've lost about $100+ in clothing from the first machine, plus all the down time in all 3 of these machines not working & having to worry about going to do laundry elsewhere.
