Try unplugging the washer and letting it sit for a few minutes and then plug it back in.

Wont start.buzzes.unplug to turn off


Possible unbalanced load in the washer. I have found this to be the case in other types of top load washers. Just redistribute the load the try again. If this works, washer is doing what it needs to do to keep from spinning madly out of control and extending its life!

When the load starts, the washer buzzes and then the FL code is shown


This is a Failed to Lock Code. Check the seal at the lock to see if something is in the way or blocking it. Overloading or having too many clothes in the way will also cause the door to fail to seat correctly. Generally however the lock mechanism needs to be replaced or reseated as it is no longer making contact with the control board.

Frigidaire front load washer. had problems with drain and spin,went through everything i have seen on here.was working until i put a large load of towels in. half way through the load sounded out of...


Door latch could be messed up from the large load//do you here the door lock when you start it ? if door is locking and basket is not turning at all even for adjitation then it is most likely the motor control board that board is located at the bottom of washer remove lower kick plate.if you inspect that board you may find a burnt spot. that can be caused from the overload of the motor /check those things let me know how you make out..good luck and thanks for voting

Makes a loud buzzing noise when attempting to start cycle


The lock solenoid on the door latch assembly may be hanging up or just noisey. If washer starts and runs then all is ok. If washer wont start, just buzzes, then door latch assembly may have to be changed.

MY AFFINITY WASHER WONT WORK


It is the door lock that may be broken, that's what happened with my maching last summer. The lock is made of plastic if you can imagine. So if you slam the door it can break. A washing machine gets wear and tear how can closing a door be owners fault?

This is a crappy machine in terms of maintenance, it is a maintenance nightmaire!!

Buzzing sound is probably door trying to lock. May just need a new door lock.
