Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Frigidair Affinity Atf6000esi washing machine will not enter the spin cycle even when I put it on spin only. It will move slowly from left to right but will not enter the heavy spin, water drains out fine, and the other parts of the cycle work fine just the final spin. I have replaced the electronic control board as per frigidaire's advice and it has not fixed the problem.

Check the pump for drain pump for obstruction.  Even when the water has drained below visible level, there could be some left in the tub.  It usually happens when a sock gets stuck in the pump letting some of the water through, but not letting it drain completely.  When the tub is moving left to right, it is sensing the load in the machine.  It will not enter high spin when the tub is too heavy.  To check the pump take off the bottom panel, or the pump access cover which is a circular disk in the lower right hand corner.  you can unscrew the pump by hand.  There will always be a little bit of water in it, so drain it and try the spin only again.  If is still doesn't spin, it is probably your motor speed board or the motor itself.

Washer won't spin on spin cycle but spins during other cyles

Hello rylee1966 - From what you are describing, it sounds like the washer agitates, but it will not enter a high speed spin. If that is correct, more than likely there is a door switch failure. I will personally recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately and to assist with the repair(s).

I have a frigidair front load washer 4 years old it pumps water out but will not spin at anytime can u help

is the door locked and the locked light on???
these things will not spin if the door does not lock and register with the control unit that it is so.. latch may need replacement.
does it move at all, in any cycle??
if not the belt may have came off, theres usually a reason why tho, investigate and correct.
worst case scenario you will have to locate the technicians data sheet inside the lower part of the unit (i hope) and check the diagnostics button dance out and follow through the diagnostic for your units problem..
you may find the motor or motor controller to have defected.
hope this helps,
best of luck,
