    affinity front loading washer won't spin during the final spin cycle. had problems within the first week of owing the machine; the appliance center we purchased it from sent a technician to our house to fix the problem. it worked well for a while, but i have been having problems off and on since i've had the machine. i have only had the washer for 14 months. now i am worried about my dryer having problems due to having dripping wet clothes that need to dry.

My Affinity washer quit spinning during the rinse cycle 14 months after we purchased the machine. We checked to make sure ithe drain was clear, and we tried changing the size of the loads. Nothing we tried worked. I was not getting any error codes on the control panel. We called a technician out to our house to see if it could be fixed. He diagnosed the problem as the control panel. We called Frigidaire to see if they would help us out with the cost of the repair since the machine was only 14 months old, even though our one year warranty had expired. They stated that they would not cover the replacement of the control panel. After the technician replaced the control panel and tried the machine, it still did not work. He called the Frigidaire tech support to find out why, and they told him that he needed to replace the door latch system, not the control panel. After he replaced the door latch the machine worked fine. When researching this problem online, I discovered that Frigidaire has had several problems with the door latch system on their front loading washing machines. They previously had a class action lawsuit due to this problem. When I found this out, I called Frigidaire to see if they would pay the repair bill we had incurred, even though our warranty had expired 2 months ago. After they contacted the technician that worked on our machine, Frigidaire decided that they would pay the cost of the replacement door latch and the labor fee. We had to pay for the cost of the initial service call. If you are having this problem, I would suggest that you contact Frigidaire. They will require that you have a diagnosis made by a certified technician. According to our technician, the flow chart for the Frigidaire front loading machines is inaccurate, so if they make an initital diagnosis of a faulty control panel you may want to have them contact Frigidaire tech support to double check the diagnosis. Frigidaire may help cover the cost of repair if your machine has a problem with the door latch.

Where is the pressure calibration switch on an affinity front load washer?


Hello garrett_lind, I appreciate your inquiry!

From my understanding you are searching for the pressure calibration switch on your Frigidaire washer due to the fact that it is not spinning on the last cycle. Some possibilities as to why your appliance is not spinning could be your timer or drain pump. I could not locate steps to access the pressure switch but for electrical components I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose and repair the appliance. -Matt

Why does my washer do every thing but spin dry could a pressure swicth be bad on door?


Good Afternoon Dale,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000ES, not spinning your clothes dry. First, if the drum is not spinning at all, I suggest resetting your appliance by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. Once power is restored run a spin only cycle. If it starts spinning and the clothes are still coming out damp, try one of the following:

    1)Try changing the spin speed to a higher speed.
    2)Make sure that you have not overloaded your washer.
    3)Make sure that the wash load is not too small. If you are only washing a couple of items, try adding 1 or 2 similar items to balance the load.
    4)Try rearranging the load to allow proper spinning.
    5)Check the drain hose for any kinks. If it is kinked, straighten it.
    If you are still having trouble with your washer spin drying, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

    -Best Regards-

Frigidaire Affinity Front Load Washer wont drain.


If your pump had something in it, it wouldn't have had to clog it, but rather just stopped the internal spinning. My coworker removed a dollar bill from his water pump, and it fixed the problem he was having (same as you've described) and the water pump worked well after it was re-installed.
Worst case scenario, you reinstall it and it doesn't drain and you spend 40 or 50 bucks online for the part. I would reinstall and see if it works. I'd bet on it.

Hello - Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned, or you have another issue with the door lock assembly or the timer and control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.
