SOURCE: Will fill with water but during rinse and spins it won't drain.

I fixed it on my own. By taking off the suction hose and spinning the fan inside it apparently dislodged something and is working now. Hopefully the problem won't come back, I was unable to find the foreign object.

SOURCE: Affinity ATF7000 washer high speed spin not

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer or dryer ID doesn't
mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a
schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and
discovered that more than 4,700 people were asking
for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer
repair of my own and found an excellent video which
showed me how to take my machine apart. This
video made it possible for me to do my own repair. I
was so impressed with the video that when I saw all
these people needing help, I wanted to tell them
about it. If you have a top loader (washer) of the
direct drive type, this video might be a Godsend for
you. If you look at the back of your washer and the
panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove)
chances are you have a direct drive and this video
is just what you need. You can see this video at
www.acmehowto.com You will probably need
more help in determining what the problem is and
how to fix it. If your repair problem is a washer or
dryer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com
where they have very good trouble shooting and
repair information on most washers and dryers.
I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry
about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good
luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my
advice on fixya.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Affinity washer: Straining water pump? Humming.

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

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire affinity front loader washer

There is an auxiliary switch in the door lock and switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. This is a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during the spin cycle and the machine will not spin unless the switch is activated. The machine works except advancing to the spin cycle and this signifies that the auxiliary switch cannot be activated and the door lock and switch assembly is faulty. Replaced the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) to address the issue.

Disconnect power to the machine. Open the washer door then look for the retaining hoop securing the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Stretch the retainer spring of the door seal retaining hoop then remove it.

Carefully peel off part of the door seal from the lip of the door opening near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove enough of the door seal to gain access to the door lock and switch assembly.

Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.

Take the door lock and switch assembly out of the machine. Disconnect the electrical connections then connect it to the new door lock and switch assembly.

Put the new door lock and switch assembly back into position in the front panel and secure it with the securing screws.

Properly put the eased part of the door seal back over the lip of the door opening then secure it with the retaining hoop.

I have a washer machine,affinity problem about not spinning in final washer


Good Morning Friend, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

From what you have described, it sounds like your washer cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does your washer make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, your appliance may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. In this case, because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair your washer. Best!

Hums andwill not drain and do final spin


Probability is you have a blocked pump. That humming noise you are hearing on the spin, is the pump motor polling as it cannot turn. The machine will not spin until the water is out. This is the safety function of the pressure switch. Centrifugal force would otherwise cause the water to be forced out of the machine from places like the dispenser draw and flood your laundry.

Regards

John

Does not empty after final spin cycle I have checked the pump and hoses. The only thing I see may not be right a cylinder shape is in the boot at the outlet.


Hi Peter,
So I see that your Frigidaire Affinity washer is not draining completely after the final spin. I also see that you've checked the pump and hoses as well. There are a couple of other troubleshooting tips I might suggest.
1) Make sure the standpipe isn't too tall. Maximum standpipe height should be 8' (2.4 m).
2) Check the house drain pipes to see if they are clogged. If so, unclog the drain pipes. Contact plumber if necessary.

-Best Regards-

Drain pump


Hello David Kruk - Often when a unit does not spin and is making a humming noise, it is because the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Error code 20 on an affinity frigidaire


Hello - The error code "E20" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

When my washer tries to drain and spin it shuts off


Hello bucknut55 - Either you have a communication error from the main control board or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. Contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer.
