SOURCE: Can not change Cycle setting

I wonder if it's the control board that needs replacing ??? found a note on www.managemyhome.com saying...(part no 134207700 according to my parts list). Is there anything unique/special in replacing the control board... here are the instructions for it...if you try this, pelase let me know...


Replacing the control board is just a matter of removing wires from the old control board and installing them on the new one. It is an electronic board and can be damaged by static electricity so you have to touch some ground points with you hands before touching the control board.
To access the control board remove the top panel from the washer. There are 2 screws in the rear of the washer holding the top on.
With the top removed you will see three screws going down from the top holding the control panel to the cabinet of the washer; remove them.
Lift the control panel up and it will come loose. The control is mounted to the control panel with some screws.

SOURCE: Control Panel

did you ever get this fixed? I think it may have to do with the control panel or part #18 in the book which is part 134207700

please let me know....mine stays on HOT...but I finally unplugged it long enough and now I can only get COLD water. the part seems to have gone down on price so I think I will give it a try myself and hope for the best... tracyjos@hotmail.com

SOURCE: Frigidaire Affinity LAFW8000L will not

Hi
The issue is with the door lock assembly that is bad and should be replaced. If the door lock assembly is bad the control will sense that the door is open and so will not start a spin cycle. If you want you can test the door lock assembly with a voltmeter before replacing it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

(no promises as I do not know your particular model but it's worth carrying this out anyway!)

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

Hello Brenda - I am more than happy to assist you! First, let's try resetting the washer machine. This can be done by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. Once the unit is operable, please select the Normal cycle and press one of the two selections. If the issue persists, then in the case the appliance may be experiencing a communication error with the control board, a potential wiring failure or a faulty water valve. At this point, I would recommend having a service technician to diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts.

Affinity only works on delicate


Hello Ed - Often when a washer only works on a certain cycle, it is because the unit could possibly be experiencing a potential wiring failure, a communication with the control board or faulty timer. Let's try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the washer. If the issue persists, then at this point I strongly recommend reaching out to a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. You can often locate a qualified service provider through the manufacturer website.

Display panel


Hello Thomas - I understand that your washer continues to beep and will not operate. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately two minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle and verify if the washer will start. If the washer will not operate then it possibly have a communication error with the main control board, a potential wiring failure, or fauly door lock assembly. I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause. Thank you for allowing me to assist you!

My normal cycle doesn't light up on the dial


Hello sisterw - If only the normal cycle is not lighting up on the keypad but all the other options do, then the washer may be experiencing a wiring failure. Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Restart the unit and if it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose the control board as well.

If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.

Frigidaire affinity door will not lock when door is closed or register door is not closed when open


Hi,
Make sure you are allowing the washer to completely finish its cycle before opening the door. It is normal for the door to lock at the end of a cycle. The locking mechanism keeps owners from opening the door before all of the water has been drained. If the door on the washer is locked, select the "Drain" or "Spin" options on the front-load washer. This will completely drain the water from the system and unlock the door, allowing you to open it.
