Question about Frigidaire FAFS4272LW Washer

1 Answer

I have a Affinity Series fafs4272lw. When I got it, I could put about 3/4 full of clothes and now it makes clunky noises like it is hitting the side of the washer. I had the repairman out he said I put too much in washer. So, I started putting way less in. But now it seems I can not put too much in without it doing that. I have insurance on it. The manuel says "The washer can be fully loaded, but items should not be tightly packed. The door should close easily". That is what I have done. What to do?

It easy to get out of balance if stuffed too much. The load sensing during the start rolls the clothes back and forth to balance the load. If its packed tight it won't do well.

SOURCE: Doesn't spin the clothes dry on the final spin but spins at high revolutions without a load of clothes

I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....

SOURCE: my Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't

If the washer fills with water, but will not start the wash cycle or spin, it is 1 of to things. the most common for frigidaire front load affinitys is the door lock assembly. I have had to replace numerous of these. if the door lock indicator is not on when it tries to wash, you need to replace the door lock assembly. if the door lock indicator is on, but wont wash, it is likly that you have a bad motor control board.

My dryer says pf and I just put the clothes in so what does this mean?


On some models pf indicates a power failure. Try unplugging and re-plugging after a short pause.

Intermittent LOUD shorting sound


I would prefer to hear it to be sure which one it is, but the four biggest causes of noise in a wireless system are: 1) Something hitting the mic (check to make sure the mic is free of clothing, other people, faces, etc.) 2) If the mic is a lavalier or in some way has a cable that plugs into the transmitter, something pulling on it could create a loud noise. Check to make sure it's in snug. 3) RF Interference with another mic or some other interference source. Try changing the frequency. 4) Something blocking the signal between the transmitter antenna and the receiver antenna. This is most likely to happen with a lavalier in someone's pocket or under clothing, and/or if the transmitter is far away from the receiver. The SLX series is okay for what it is, but part of why it's on the cheaper side is because of its limited distance. Unfortunately the only ways to alleviate this are to a) Reduce the distance, b) get a stronger wireless system, c) move the transmitter somewhere that the antenna is free, and d) invest in True Diversity antennae for the receiver.

My GE top loading washer is making a clunking noise during agitation. Everything else okay


The problem may be in your agitator. The spline may be worn out. It is located under the spindle. Are your clothes becoming clean. That noise might be the agitator not fully engaged.

Kenmore 90 plus series washer won't spin, barely agitates, will drain - but makes loud noise


It sounds like the transmission is done. Can't pinpoint what it is exactly, but I would start there.

Wash machine won't spin all the time and makes a loud banging noise.


Check to make sure that your clothes are not piled to one side causing the load to be off-balance. If that does'nt fix it then, It may be that your machine has a balance stabilizer on it that has worked its way loose or even off.
