Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer
When I start my washer even though there is still water in the drum it will shut down after a few mintues. I hear a buzzing sound and thought it's the water valves. I removed the hoses and cleaned the rust particles from the screens however it still shuts down. Wondering if this could be a bad water inlet valve or faulty door lock causing it to shut down. It is 3 years old and I have hard water. Also this washer has had three previous times of the drain pump clogging last time cleaned about 4 months ago this acts differently than when the drain pump is clogged then it wouldn't spin, now it just shuts down after a few minutes.
Good Afternoon Lori - Thank you for your post! Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. If you noticed a humming noise, then once again it could either be a clogged drainage hose or pump that needs to be cleaned, or it could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

its either the upper spin bearing or lower spin bearing. the upper can be replaced by itself but the lower requires the transmission the be replaced

SOURCE: Affinity E21 error
E21 means "Not pumping out fast enough". Could be debris caught in the pump inlet sump or pump body.
Disconnect the inlet sump from the pump. Disconnect the outlet hose from the pump. Remove the (2) screws, one on each side, holding the pump housing to the washer base. Unplug the wires from the pump motor and lift the pump assembly out.

SOURCE: Clogged pump on Affinity Washer
Exactly the same problem. Washed a small area rug that appeared to have pretty much disintegrated. Machine would not drain. Got the same e 20 code. Checked the drain hose, and it was fine. Reamed the house drain just to be sure. Drum appears to have drained, but now the motor runs, and no water enters the machine. Both water hoses are flowing. No further error codes. Nada.
