Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
My washer will fill with water, it will spin both ways during the wash cycle but when it goes to the spin cycle you can hear the machine draining the water but it does not spin. It will then go onto the rinse cycle where it will again spin both ways and then you can hear it start to drain and go into the final spin cycle but the machine does not spin for it. Help PLEASE!
IT IS THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY, COST AROUND $50.00 WHICH IS FAR BETTER THAN $300.00, WHAT A SERVICE REPAIR PERSON WILL CHARGE YOU. YEA IT'S THE CRAZIEST THING IMAGINABLE, THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY BEING THE CAUSE FOR IT TO NOT SPIN ALL THE WATER OUT. I FIXED MINE MYSELF, HAD TO TAKE IT ALL APART VERY CAREFULLY, BUT I SAVED MYSELF $250.00. YOU CAN GET THE PART ONLINE OR GO TO NEAREST APPLIANCE PARTS STORE IN YOUR CITY. ASK FOR DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY. THEY WILL KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT BECAUSE IT IS A VERY COMMON, I REPEAT VERY COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS BRAND OF WASHING MACHINE.

I had the same problem with my Frigidaire affinity (ATF6000ES)
I ran the spin diagnostic test and got the err 47 code which is the door lock. actually its was the ptc it looks like a solenoid plunger which locks the door. I was suppose to get a reading of 1500 ohms or 1.5K ohm but I had no reading (open) Mechanically it worked but without the right resistance going back to the board it would not go into a full spin

I have a fridgadair front loader that would not spin. Had a repair guy come out and it was the door lock.

I have the same problem with my Frigidaire Affinity. Washed 4 loads of clothes just fine, on 5th one it didn't spin them out. Thanks to the post from puninski here, I called my local parts supplier and bought a new door latch assembly. We just finished replacing it and the machine runs like new. According to the guy at the parts store, this is a pretty common failure, but the replacement part is stronger than the original, so it doesn't fail twice. I am so glad that a $50 part fixed my $4000 washer/dryer set. I couldn't afford to replace them. Thank you for this site.

Out of curiosity any one with the Frigidaire ATF7000ES1 front loader or similar remember what was the solution to the no high speed spin problem? I am having the same problem with mine. It is only 15 months old. What was the age of your washer when it stopped? This could be an important factor... There is a possibility of an component that goes bad around this time. If you don't have an extended warranty call Frigidaire and they will pay for the parts... Stop letting manufactures use cheap components in expensive machines, it cost you, unless you voice your concerns the beatings will continue..

I had the same problem listed above on my LTF2140ES3...the machine did everything but do a final spin. In diagnostics I could do the final spin and the machine kicked out an E43 which is the control board error.
Following the advice here I changed the door latch first and the problem went away and the unit runs as it should.
You'll get "experts" who say that the unit would not spin at all if the door latch was bad. I can tell you first hand that they are wrong. Again the unit did all the normal tumbling but didn't do the high speed final spin. Again, replacing the door latch fixed the problem. The door latch is part number 131763245 (AP3886713)

YES, the door. I read up all I could and told my service tech I thought it was the door. The tech mechanic initially said it couldn't be the door since all the other cycles funtioned normally. After changing both the computer on the panel and inside, he finally realized it was the door.
Once again, if your washer does everything but spin, it is a door lock problem. Note: The door does lock, but does not send the correct signal allowing the washer to spin!!

The problem was the door lock as 'danesrule' also mentioned. It was not the pump or motor control board. The part number is AP3886713 for my washer (Kenmore model 41744152400). It will cost about $40.

Try the "spin only" button to take the water out of your machine. If this does not work, take the pipe from the wall socket and lay it on the floor for the water to spill out. The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; if the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub (plug off the wall first before doing all these things). Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.

My Frigidaire Gallery Front Load Washing machine goes through the wash cycle fine, filling with water, agitating(turning to wash clothes), but it does not do the fast spin and does not drain the water. I can here the machine clicking through when the spin should occur. Put in a light load, 2 t-shirts and a shirt, same thing. The model # FWT4496F52 Serial # XC00515877. Took the back off and the belt is fine and the barrel turns when manually turned. What can be the problem? Oakley, CA

Door latch lock.
It has 2 sets of switches inside, and the second one has to be made at the correct time..
You should see the concoction I put together to make this thing run so we could wash some clothes this weekend.

There is no doubt in my mind it is almost always the door latch. I had this same issue and I have a sears master protection agreement. Had my sears guy come and look at it and said, "oh yeah, you need a new circuit board...." He said he'll order it and he'll put it in some 2 weeks later. Well, can't wait that long so I came here. Sure enough, went and got a replacement part for the door latch. Maybe took me 3 minutes to replace and its FIXED! Thanks to this site...you save me 2 weeks of headache.

It is your brushes they will tubule but these not enough brush on the brushes to fast spin if you don't get them done quick you will find that the brass bit of the brush holder will touch the armicher and then you will have to buy a new motor so if i was you wight down the model number and go on ebay and get a pair or go to your second hand appliance shop them should have some in stock if not they will get you some there only £9 pound or less cheap but your motor will be about £60-£70 pound up woulds so check them first

You don't always have to replace that switch. Sometimes it just breaks loose and can be tied back in place with a zip tie or wire. You also don't need the entire switch most of the time. The switch is used in everything you can think of practically. Find a old microwave, barbie jeep or vacuum on the road and you'll find plenty of the same switch for free if it does need to be replaced. You can tell if it needs replacing by pushing the red button you'll find on the switch itself. If you hear no click then it needs replacing. On some older top loaders there is a fuse directly behind the switch assembly. Check that fuse first then the switch. Good luck.

Ours would not spin at all. My husband took the drain off underneath the frontloader and found that the backflow rubber flap had broke and was stopping up the drain. We called our repairman and he said it was unneccessary, that half of them did not even have them. It is working fine now. Thanks for the troubleshooting ideas.

It IS definitely the door lock. Just replaced mine without a repair man. Ran a load and 37 minutes later, clothes were properly spun. .... it's not the pump, not the motor, nothing clogged... just the door lock. Part is $65 in my area (vs a $350 trial and error repairman). Thanks to everyone on this site that provided the help.

Frigidaire front loader model # GLTF2940ES3.
Cycle ended prior to spin segment. Checked error code history to find E47 fault. Troubleshot per manual. Found that the "PTC one-spot check" read ~1582ohms. Although the book indicates that this is sufficient and recommends (rather tells) you to replace the control board we were still skeptical seeing as this is a ONE POINT check on a device that is non-linear. We went with the lesser of two evils. Purchased and replaced a new door lock. Works again! Phew, that could have been costly.

Well good evening everyone!
This isnt a solution but a statement....my frigidaire front load washer is 17 months old and isnt spinning either...we bought a new pump as we thought that was the problem but no it still doesnt spin so we have taken the machine apart and have taken out the door latch piece...so hopefully this is the problem....thank you all for the posts !!!
Happy Laundering :>)

What do the letters LE mean on the machine

I had the same problem and ended up replacing the control board which solved it. Contact Westland Sales at 800-356-0766 ext. 5 for tech support.

Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.

check the lid switch on the washer its below where the tab on the washer lid that goes down in the body of the washer there two screws at the base of the control panel back these out and raise the panel you will see a connector coming from the washer disconnect it and put a jumper wire where it goes to the control panel turn it to spin pull out the knob if it spins replace the switch if it doesn't reply to me and we will go from there

SOURCE: Washer doesn't agitate
sounds like your washer went mellow on you(doesn't get agitated, right)?
ok. enough humor.
sounds like there's a problem with the motor/belt/control board in that order
