    I tipped the washer on its side to access the coin trap. I ran one rinse cycle and cleaned the trap again. My wife washed a rug. Now, trying to wash, washer adds about 2 seconds of water, then nothing else. The timer on the washer counts down the wash cycle, but does not wash, rinse, spin, anything.

    I opened the top and tried to run a cycle, I can hear clicks and a hum, but nothing is moving. It soinds like something is stuck, but everything seems to move freely.

    Thank you!

2 year old may tag washer when first starts up it has a sulfer odor and we are on city water????


Stagnant water is collecting in base of drum, which will give off sulphides between washes.check penny trap for any coins buttons trapped , thus may prevent complete emptying.also if you have not already consider if you are in a hard water area, if you are the calcium build up on the internal parts will retain these impurities more than a clean machine so bleaching will only part cure the problems.you will need to add something like calgon into the machine periodically.dont overload machine and check water levels on rinse cycle.if the water doesn't fill nearly half way on final rinse you may need to check if the pressure switch has any water in it as this will prevent air pressure being right so filling will be affected on rinse cycles.maybe too much info here but some of this May be of use to you.

Clean the trap


AFFINITY COIN TRAP

1. Unplug the unit.

2. Tilt the unit up to where the front feet are in the air and the back feet are still on the ground. Please make sure the unit is propped up safely.

3. Now that the unit is propped up look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion piece. This is the coin trap.

4. Clean the drum out with as much water as possible and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out.

5. At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.

6. Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.

7. Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards

Washing machine not draining


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.
Coin Trap If the washer won't drain the coin trap may be clogged. This washer is equipped with a device near the water pump called a coin trap. The purpose of this device is to trap any foreign materials that make their way down the drain. Normally, the coin trap can be accessed through an access panel. It is designed with the homeowner in mind and is normally easy to clean out.

My frigidaire affinity will spin when washing but only spin the closes dry when on delegate cycle what could the problem be?


Hello Tony - Often when a unit does not spin it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have either the pump or timer diagnose. Also you might want to clean out the coin trap, filter trap, of the unit for extra security. This needs to be completed about every 6 months to prevent any issues.

1. Unplug the unit.

2. Tilt the unit up to where the front feet are in the air and the back feet are still on the ground. Please make sure the unit is propped up safely.

3. Now that the unit is propped up look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.

4. Clean the drum out with as much water as possible and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out.

5. At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.

. Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.

The water does not go down after cycle is done. kenmore 417-43042200


remove the lower toe kick panel below the door and remove the clean out trap,its a 2 to 3 inch round plug and it unscrews and it is probably full of debris coins,nails,hairpins,etc,this stuff will block water flow during drain cycle
