Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

1 Answer

Recently had the door lock replaced on our 2yr. old Frigidaire front loading washing machine for around $270.00. Now the machine intermittently goes off and on and then goes completely dead. If we unplug it for multiple days, it will restart, but then eventually goes dead again. Is it worth it to put more money into this machine? (Called multiple repair people and it looks like it will cost me at least another $120.00 just to get the diagnosis with additional unknown costs for repair.) Thx so much!

Hi,

There might be 6 reasons for the same :-

1. Condenser Coils
2. Outlet Voltage
3. Condenser Fan
4. Compressor Relay
5. Overload Protector
6. Compressor Motor.

No doubt, as it only 2 yrs old, However, it would cost you 120 bucks only for diagnosis.It's not a wise Idea to spend more. Do it yourself.Diagnose yourself, it might be a small fix. I am ready to help you in all way.

1. Condenser Coils :- Check the below mentioned link to have a complete guideline :-

2. Outlet Voltage :- Check the below guideline :-

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/homemaintenance/electrical/outletvoltage.php

3. Condenser Fan :- Check the below guideline for Condenser Fan :-

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/check/condensorfan.php

4. Compressor Relay :- Guideline would be :-

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/check/compressorrelay.php

5. Overload Protector :- Guideline would be :-

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/check/overload.php

6. Compressor Motor :- Guideline is :-

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/check/compressor.php

IF POSSIBLE CHECK YOURSELF, IF THAT'S COMPRESSOR, IT USUALLY HAVE 5 YEARS OF WARRANTY.GET IT REPLACE WITHOUT ANY CHARGE. THERE IS NO POINT OF PAYING 120 BUCKS FOR DIAGNOSIS AND LATER FIND THAT YOU NEED TO SPEND 200 MORE BUCKS. THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

It might be an issue with Control Board. In that case, better to invest in New One.

Check yourself, If by cleaning coils you can get it fixed it's great. Unless, if that's compressor, get it replaced without any charge.

If there is some other issue you might determine of all the above mentioned, its Control Board.Better buy a New Machine then spending 300 more bucks.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

My Electrolux front load will not lock. I close the door and the light goes out but will not lock. The washer is around a year old.


Sounds like the door latch assembly strike is not catching correctly and not telling the sensor the door is shut properly. Contact Frigidaire to see if you have any limited warranty on such a concern and then schedule a professional.

I have a Affinity frigidaire front load washer and need to replace part number 131763202. The model number of the washer is ATF6000FS1 Thank you in advance


Disconnect power then open the door and remove the spring-hoop assembly that secures the door gasket. Peel off the part of the door gasket near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel then pull the door lock and switch assembly out. Transfer the wires to the new door lock and switch assembly then install into place. Put the door gasket back and secure it with the spring-hoop assembly.

My Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't start: the "door locked" button doesn't come on though the door is closed properly


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.
