SOURCE: affinity washer not wanting to spin!

My Affinity washer quit spinning during the rinse cycle 14 months after we purchased the machine. We checked to make sure ithe drain was clear, and we tried changing the size of the loads. Nothing we tried worked. I was not getting any error codes on the control panel. We called a technician out to our house to see if it could be fixed. He diagnosed the problem as the control panel. We called Frigidaire to see if they would help us out with the cost of the repair since the machine was only 14 months old, even though our one year warranty had expired. They stated that they would not cover the replacement of the control panel. After the technician replaced the control panel and tried the machine, it still did not work. He called the Frigidaire tech support to find out why, and they told him that he needed to replace the door latch system, not the control panel. After he replaced the door latch the machine worked fine. When researching this problem online, I discovered that Frigidaire has had several problems with the door latch system on their front loading washing machines. They previously had a class action lawsuit due to this problem. When I found this out, I called Frigidaire to see if they would pay the repair bill we had incurred, even though our warranty had expired 2 months ago. After they contacted the technician that worked on our machine, Frigidaire decided that they would pay the cost of the replacement door latch and the labor fee. We had to pay for the cost of the initial service call. If you are having this problem, I would suggest that you contact Frigidaire. They will require that you have a diagnosis made by a certified technician. According to our technician, the flow chart for the Frigidaire front loading machines is inaccurate, so if they make an initital diagnosis of a faulty control panel you may want to have them contact Frigidaire tech support to double check the diagnosis. Frigidaire may help cover the cost of repair if your machine has a problem with the door latch.

What is E58

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are receiving an E58 code on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF8000FE. The E58 states that it is a high current on the motor phase. This could possibly be a false code, as well. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at the circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start 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-

Hi Susan, this is JK. I understand that you are receiving an error E56 on your washer. This error E56 is indicating a high motor current, the motor has overheated. The washer motor will stop when it is overheated, allow the motor to cool down and attempt to wash again. If the problem persists, you would need to contact a service provider to test the motor, motor pulley, tub pulley and the bearings. Hope this helps!

Frigidaire E57

Hello Daniel Huntley - Typically error code E59 indicates that that washer is not detecting a tacho signal for about three seconds. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. Certified technicia will need to remove the belt from the motor, spin the motor pulley, diagnose the speed control board and etc.

Stinky washer

I had a similar problem with odor. I ran the washer on hot with a few cups of vingear in the detergent, bleach, and fabric softener trays and it helped a lot. Also, be sure to leave the door cracked open when you remove wet clothes, so the inside of the washer can air dry.
