Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer
I have tried all settings and washer will not spin. I believe everything else is working. Tube will turn when washing and rinse. Water pumps out. It just wont spin . It is not showing any error codes. Thanks for your help
Ii this is a newer front load machine, I would have to say one of the electronic boards because if it was an older top load machine and spin went out on one cycle only I would say its the timer, but you would not normally lose the spin cycle in all of the spin cycles because each spin cycle on a timer would be separate. Newer front load machines like in your picture, are probably controlled by one of the circuit boards. If you could examine the boards and visible see if you see a burn spot or cap that has erupted, than I would have to assume it was the board. If it was a board, it would most likely cost more than the machine cost new. The newer Front load machines are junk. They use less water, but the run time is much longer and they do not get cloths as clean no matter what they claim. Most have a drum bearing issue and some the board, and in ether case unless you can change the bearing, it will cost $600.00 or more to have it replace. I had a Whirlpool front load and my bearing went out at 4-1/2 years. I had the five year extended warranty, which I knew would be worth getting because I normally never buy extended warranties. I had it repaired and sold it the following week. No matter what you buy now days, if is energy efficient it will save money until it breaks. At that point, you lost any savings you may have had having it repaired.

holla, Im not showing a E20 code on the tech sheet. There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys. If you see a different error code, post it. If not, I would suspect a clogged pump...Catriver.

SOURCE: Affinity E21 error
E21 means "Not pumping out fast enough". Could be debris caught in the pump inlet sump or pump body.
Disconnect the inlet sump from the pump. Disconnect the outlet hose from the pump. Remove the (2) screws, one on each side, holding the pump housing to the washer base. Unplug the wires from the pump motor and lift the pump assembly out.

I too had the same problem, I closed the soap tray and a magnet popped out and got stuck to the door. Same problem with it acting like it was going to start and then beeped. This is where the magnet goes, just stick it back in, its held in with pressure (barely) :)
I took the whole control panel off to locate the magnetic reed switch, then just reverse engineered where the magnet is supposed to go on the soap drawer.

I just had this problem with my Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000EE0.
When the machine seems to work fine (as it will wash but just won't kick into a spin cycle) it is most likely the door lock/switch assembly. In addition to the actual door lock solenoid and door closed switch, the assembly contains a secondary lock in the form of a wax motor and an auxiliary switch. This wax motor and switch activates during the spin cycle. When the wax motor goes bad the secondary lock does not activate therefore the spin cycle switch does not activate, which in turn disables the spin cycle. Even though you can hear your door lock kick in and the door is locked it is most likely the secondary lock in this switch assembly. Start by replacing it first.
Unplug the washer unless you want to get shocked! Take out the two screws at the back of the washer that holds on the washer top and remove the top by sliding towards the back of the machine and lift up. You can go to the front of the machine and reach down inside to the door lock while removing the two screws that hold it in from the outside front of the machine. Once the lock is removed there should be enough wire slack to get the lock up above the tub before you go and try to unplug any connections. Make sure and make notes as to where your connections go on the switch. Simply unplug the old switch and plug your new lock assembly in, remount it, and put the top back on. You should be good to go.
One note, don't panic if you select spin cycle and it doesn't start spinning immediately. Wax motors actuate very slow and smoothly. It could take up to a minute for the lock and switch mechanism to get into place before the spin will start.
Have a great day!

more than likely the pump is clogged if you pull the the washer out away from the wall and then lean it back to get under it there is a hole to access the under side you can reach through to the pump then disconnect the large hose that goes from the tub to pump reach down inside of this hose remove the cup that has debris in it and clear it out remove the debris and reassemble the washer
