Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer
First i've never worked on a Frigidaire Affinity, but to my knowledg they all work the same. Just about the only reason a machine would overflow is because of a pressure switch issue. Generally pressure switches do not fail. But their hoses can dislodge, become clogged or develop flaws that allow air (source of pressure) to escape. Truthfully they hardly ever wear out and rarely become clogged. Ask anybody who knows and they'll agree, it's usually because the hose pops off for whatever reason. So in theory at least this should be a no cost easy fix.
The problem is i can't tell you how to get into your machine. I can't even tell you for sure where the pressure switch is located on your machine. But, I can give you a YouTube link that might be some help.
Removing the top panel may be all you need to do. Usually the pressure switch is in the top of the machine around the control panel area. It should be the only component with a tube (usually clear) running from it to the tub or around the drain pump. The switch will look like this: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/frigidaire-switch-pressure-134762000-ap4298882.html
You will have to follow the path of the tube to find where it goes. Likely it is unhooked at one end or the other. There are no clamps that hold them in place that i've ever seen, so just slide it back in place and you're done. Word of caution: Unplug the machine first. I got "bit" by a pressure switch once.
Hope this helps. Let me know if hose is not dislodged.
