It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

When the washer is turned on how do I get it to move from sensing?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that when your Frigidaire washer, model# FAFS4272LW, is turned on, you are having trouble with it moving from sensing. Your washer should be sensing how heavy the load is for a little bit and should then move on to the next point of the cycle. If not, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Once power is restored, try running any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Fafs42272lwo says door open when closed

Hello Craig, thank you for your post!

I understand that the door of your Frigidaire washer (FAFS42272LW) indicates that it is open and your washer will not operate. Let's try resetting your washer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is best to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your washer. Select a normal cycle and verify if your washer will start. If yourappliance will not operate then it possibly have a faulty door lock assembly or a communication problem with the control board. I am fairly confident that an authorized service agent will be able to restore your appliance to its normal operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the manufacturer website.

Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to assist you! - Z

I have a Affinity Series fafs4272lw. When I got it, I could put about 3/4 full of clothes and now it makes clunky noises like it is hitting the side of the washer. I had the repairman out he said I put...

It easy to get out of balance if stuffed too much. The load sensing during the start rolls the clothes back and forth to balance the load. If its packed tight it won't do well.

My washer won't spin

Hello Michael Johnson - Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose and repair the unit.
