Re: will not turn on
A clogged drain hose or water-pump will cause this washer not to rinse spin or drain. Can you remember at some point washing a rug with backing or pillow that came apart or any other item that could have shreaded, plugging the drain/pump?
Drain hoses and water pump can be remove and cleaned by tipping the washer forward to access these parts underneath the machine. Remove any stand water before. A handyman can do this for you.
Now as far as not turning on, I do not know about this. Did you smell an electrical burn coming from the rear top of the machine at anytime? This would be the electronics control board. A $300 item and probably not worth repairing since this GWL EcoSmart series is not a long life machine, less than 5 years.

I understand you are not receiving power to your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# FAFW4011LWD. I also see that there was a power outage before the symptoms began. I suggest checking the fuses or circuit breaker to make sure that it has not been tripped. If the breaker has not been tripped, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's 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.
First, plug a fan or hair dryer into the plug to make sure it has power, if not, check to see if the GFI plug hasn tripped. All electrical plugs that are near water have to be on a dedicated electrical line that has a trip-breaker (GFI) built into the plug. Try unplugging the washer for several minutes to reset the electronics. Those are the only two quick fixes I can think of. If you have an electric dryer, it will have its own 220v plug and won't be affected like the washer. If the dryer is gas and is plugged into the same outlet, try unplugging the washer to reset first before you call a repairman for the washer. If you have homeowners insurance, they may cover the damage.
Possible 3 Probs 1st has the fuse blown in plug 13amp, 2 probably brushes on motor are worn down and only just making contact that why some times when u turn it its ok again, the second is there is a unit called capistor ur machine will run erratic as this goes then stops all together the unit is silver round about 30mm X 750 long with 4-5 wires connected on 1 end hope this Alan
F28 is a communication error which usually means there is a connection that has come loose. Removing the top and unpplugging and replugging the connectors in will fix 75% of these codes. If the bottom toe panel is not on it will also give you an F28
Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation when our chat has concluded Thanks again Rick
I would suggest checking the breaker first. You might want to turn breaker to off and back to on if it does not look like it has tripped. I have seen them trip but not all the way to off. If breaker has not tripped I would check to make sure the power cord is plugged in completely and is not loose in the back of the dryer. If cord is alright then there is a possibility of an internal fuse that could have blown. Hope this helps.
The dryer is on a different circuit as it is 240 volts. Look in your breaker box and find the breaker for it (it should be tripped half way). Turn it completely off and then back on. There is no reset button for it. Make sure the plug is securely pushed all the way into the outlet.
If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
No power Lid switch No power
Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?
If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:
* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds. * Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet. * Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display. * Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.
