Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Front loading washer door lock

The washer wont start because the door will not stay locked. It acts like it will start, but then the door lock will click off and the washer will not work. It is not because the washer engine is hot. It had done this before and that was what I thought it was, but I just went to use it tonight for the first time today and it is doing it again. Always when you have nothing to wear the next day for work :(

It has not been resolved yet. It has been worked on twice now. It has a new electric panel (not sure what it is really called other than the brain) and part of the motor has been replaced. Now apparently the heater core is not working. The tech told me the heater core probably went out which caused the other 2 issues. I suggest buying the extended warranty if it is ever offered to you. My washer is only 9 month.

Front load duet washer wont start because the door cant lock and we cant open the door.

You need to replace the door lock/switch. It is quite an easy job but is a tight fit behind the front so a bit tricky to get the old one out and the new one in.

Maytag Neptune front load washer with FL code

The "FL" is indicating that the door has failed to lock or it locked but the control does not sense the door has locked.

It could be caused by:
faulty door lock solenoid
loose wire connection
faulty door lock switch
faulty door lock sense switch
bad control board

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer.
but try this first just in case....unplug it for 1 minute plug back in and see if the fault code clears.
good luck.

hi there,

you have a door latch problem. the reason you can still push on the button is because this particular washer has a time delay function. i would recommend taking a look at the latch itself and possibly the wax motor that runs the latch.
