My new Frigidair front loader

My new frigidair affinity washer just makes a humming noise when I turn it on. I won't spin or fill with water. It's brand new I haven't even got to use it yet. My husband took off the bolts on the back that he was suppose to but I don't know what could be the problem. No the water isn't off. We checked it several times. The water is definately on.

Re: My new Frigidair front loader

Wow it sure sounded like the water was turned off. There should be no problem getting a tech out soon to see whats going on why it wont bring the water in. It sounds like maybe the door lock isnt working?? Is the strike broken on the door?? I take it it wont spin on its spin only cycle??just return it to place of purchase. If you need any other assistance let me know, reply to your old posts so i can be notified you wouls like more assistance.

My Affinity front loader works fine but shuts down early at last 6 min no spin soaking wet cloths

Hello James Banks - 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 unit make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit. Thanks for allowing me to help you.

Error code 20 on an affinity frigidaire

Hello - The error code "E20" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

If the unit will not spin at all and makes a humming noise, sounds like something has seized up in the back of the unit. This could be a belt broken, motor seized up, or the transmission, if your unit has one, is gone.

My Frigidaire Affinity washer stopped working. When i start the cycle it makes a loud humming noise, but no water goes in, and it starts spinning for a few minutes, then the time goes from 1hr, to 3 m

Possible that the inlet valve is faulty. please measure the voltage on the inlet when the washer is switched on , if there is no voltage then the controller is faulty. If voltage is present then the inlet valve has failed.

MY GE front loader washer won't fill with water or spin. I hear a hum when I turn it on and it sounds as if it's about to start a cycle but nothing happens.

It sounds as if your water valve is either clogged or the solenoid is stuck and not letting any water in. Here is a checklist of things you should do to help isolate the problem:
1) check to make sure the water is on
2) turn the water off and remove the water lines and verify that both the lines and the screens on the valve are clear of debris, calcium, etc.
3) take the top off the machine where you can actually see the valve, turn the machine on and see if the vavle is the humming noise that you are hearing. If so and no water is coming out then the valve is bad.

Frigidaire front washer has power but won't fill up, drain or go through correct cycles

You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. First set the washer to drain and spin. If you hear a hum or grinding noise and the water in the tub isn't draining or it's draining slowly you have something in the pump. If you take the rear panel off you'll reveal the drain pump at the right front corner or maybe middle on this model. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp (this can be tricky) attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. (you may want to have some old towels ready) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!
