Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF8000FS

Frigidaire affinity irregular spin

Model ATF8000FS1, serial XC73818480, 15 mos. old. In perm press cycle, it does not spin after wash or rinses EXCEPT does do final spin, though sometimes not until the last minute after much sucking out of water. In normal cycle, it will sometimes spin after wash and rinse if it is happy with the size and balance of the load (one bath towel will throw it off). Final rinse same as perm press cycle. I have had to resort to forcing it to spin after wash cycle by stopping it and changing to spin only cycle. This is a 12 minute cycle and it often tumbles and sucks H2O for 11 minutes and finally spins for 3 or 4 more minutes. If it is in a good mood it will spin at around 6 mins. in that cycle. This is all frustrating and a big waste of time. No error codes have appeared.

    You may be correct about control board problem. But it seems strange that I get no error codes.
    You asked about strange noises...it seems loud and "sucks" a long time when it is in drain cycle and this loud draining goes on for several minutes. It is also overly sensitive to weight and balance of the load. Thanks for quick reply.

    Thanks again, but are there any filters or hoses (other than the one drain line out the back) that are accessible on this thing? It is a stackable with the dryer on top. I assume that needs to come off to be able to get at anything. Probably will call the local Frig. serviceman, but I was hoping to be able to tell him what the exact problem was when I called.

THE OUT OF BALNCE SENSOR MAY BE DEFECTIVE AND PREVENTING THE SPIN CYLCE, ALSO THERE ARE MANY FAULTS THAT MAY NOT SET A TROUBLE CODE.

I believe the control board is at fault. Your selector switch or the control board that sends information to the motor is not communicating due to technical errors. this is something that will most likely have to be repaired by a technician. Unless you have an error code. Do you have an error code or any weird noises?

    check your drains, filter and hoses for clogs. They to will cause same problems

Clean tub options keeps blinking on affinity frigidaire fafs4474lwo model


Hello Jodi, thank you for your post!

Your Frigidaire washer (FAFS4474LW0) will automatically prompt you to run the CLEAN WASHER cycle typically every 50 cycles. If you wish to begin the cycle, press SELECT when prompted. This maintenance cycle uses hot water and two rinses to remove residue that may cause odor. For best results, I recommend to use the CLEAN WASHER cycle once a month

You may press the CANCEL button to manually perform the cycle at another time if you prefer. You can do this by following these directions:

    ·Rotate cycle knob to Rinse & Spin
    ·Then press the CLEAN WASHER option button
    ·The LCD screen will display "SYSTEM CLEAN"

    Hope this helps! - Z
