Your pump strainer is plug with change, hair, baby socks hair ties or such. If you have never worked on washers you might ask around for help It is not a job for a newbie. You have take the front off the washer cabinet off and the filter is inside the large boot that attaches to the pump. The here is manual link.

I have an Affinity washing machine that shows an E23 error code.

Hello Robert Reische, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your Frigidaire washer is showing an "E23" error code. Based off the information I show "E23" stands for drain pump relay on board failed or wire off the pump. Which means you could have an issue within the main control board or wiring to pump. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend having a technician come out to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. Hopefully this helps. -Matt

What does error code E23 on a frigidaire affinty front load washing machine mean

Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are receiving an E23 code on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# GLTF2940ES. The E23 code states that the drain pump relay on the control board has failed. This could also be a possible false code. 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-

Code E23 comes up om my Frigidaire Affinity front load washer. I have changed the motor control board but still have the code E23, checked the wiring harness and everything looks good. Unplugged the pump...

Hi James, thank you for your post! If you are getting an error code E23, it usually means one of three things: your drain pump relay has failed, a wire may be disconnected from the pump, or your main control board needs replacing. However, since you have already replace the control board, one of the best ways to determine if this is a false error code is to reset the power to the appliance by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the washer on. If the error code persists, it would be advisable to reach out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect.

Frigidare affinity error code E23

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand you have a Frigidaire Affinity ATF6000 series washer with an error code E23, correct ?
If that is indeed the error code you receive in the display it is potentially bad news unfortunately, as that indicates either loose wire (fingers crossed) or a failed drain pump relay on the control board. This is how it is described in the Frigidaire service tech manual.

Further to this, if it is not a loose wire at the pump or on the control, the only remedy is to replace the control board, unless you are proficient at electronic repairs (including soldering techniques) and can purchase an exact relay and replace just the relay...though that doesn't guarantee the control hasn't suffered collateral damage in the process.
A new control is part #134523106...
it is available at several on-line parts vendors such as "" or "" to name a couple as these links will provide.
Hope this answers your question and helps you move forward. Let me know how you make out or if anything isn't clear. Good luck and thank you for choosing FixYa today.

We have an Affinity ATF6000F washing machine that makes s horrible noise during the spin cycle and shuts off with water still in the basin. When we hit Start and Cancel at the same time we get code E23.


The error E23 denotes the drain **** relay on control board is failed.

Check whether there is some lose connections in the wires if nothing lose connection is there then you need to replace the control board.

Thank You

Washing machine makes a horrible noise in spin cycle and turns itself off. When we hold the Start and Cancel button together we get code E23.


When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...

Affinity front loader ATF7000FGO E23 ERROR

E23 error code means the drain pump relay on the control board failed or wire off pump. You already replaced control board so check the wire at the pump and make sure it's secure.

Started out with E20. Now E23.

According to the code, the board is the culprit. The pump should be 120 V. Why don't you take a cheater cord with some alligator clips and put power directly to the pump. If the unit drains, you can pretty much trust the code and replace the board. Catriver
