Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer

8 Answers

E70 error Our machine is 7 months old. The E70 error has been appearing more and more frequently. The machine runs well for the first 35 of out 45 minute cycle. At this point it stops, starts to buzz, and flashes the E70 error. It looks as though the machine is not doing a final rinse so we run the machine again. Sometimes after 2 minutes it stops with E70 message; other times it runs fine until it reaches the 35 minute mark and the E70 error starts again. Is this a mechanical problem, the hookup, or the water pressure? Thanks.

    I am getting the same E70 message about half way through the wash load...it is not doing it in the spin cycle ...can anyone help?

  • mrsmagoo17 May 31, 2008

    The same thing happen to me the E70 seems to come up on heavier loads/ I thought the load might be unbalanced, so I readjust the load and have to restrt the whole cycle. sometime I just use the spin only cycle. this seeems to work. But I'd really like to know what the E70 code means. There's no mention of any error code inthe owners manual.The clothes feel really hotwhen this happens also. Can anyone help?

    We are having the same problem with our washer (its a 6000). Sometimes aI get the message a couple minutes into the cycle and sometimes it does not complete the spin. Will try the hose hook up...

    error E70 displays half way thru the cycle and will not clear unless I hit

    cancel and have to restart the cycle

    I spoke to a service representative and they said that E70 means that the hot and cold water hoses are switched. Even thought I put it on a cold cycle, the water was hot. So, you just need to switch the hoses. The soap will not come out unless it's the right temperature, so that's why my clothes didn't smell fresh.

Hello,

I had this exact same problem with my Frigidaire washer (E70) as bubbles100. I called an appliance repairman on 5/14/09 and paid him $60 to tell me my hot and cold water hoses were reversed/not properly installed.

This repairman was the cheapest priced $60 and he would work till he found the problem. I had one appliance repair company wanting to charge me $90 for 30 min and another wanting to charge $120 for 30 min. Hopefully this information can help save the next person some money by trying this first.

We discovered that the hot and cold water hoses had been connected incorrectly. We switched them around and haven't seen the E70 message since!

Hello Bubbles:
I pulled the manual for your unit on the 7000 model there is no E70 Code plz recheck the code by doing the following

1. Wake the washer by pressing any button.
2. Wait 5 seconds.
3. Press and HOLD the Start/Pause and Cancel
buttons simultaneously. As long as the buttons are
held, the failure code will appear in the display as an
E followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or
two letters. The controlwill beep and the Door Lock,
Wash, Rinse,
and Final Spin indicator lights will
flash.

Mine has the same problem; not sure the cause, but if I push on the door firmly and hit start, it continues to wash.
this error will come up repeatedly sometimes. It does not appear to have anything to do with the size of the load.

AEG Lavamat 60810 keeps stopping and displaying error E50 and some time E70. What is the problem and how do I fix it?


Family error code E50 means a problem with the washing motor. Family error code E70 means a problem with the NTC sensor. In my experience, E50 is most common fault in worn carbon brushes. But in any case family error code E50 is shown to the customer. In service mode could be: E51,52,53 and 54. The same applies to family E70 error code that will be displayed in service mode as error code E71 or E74.
E50 error code could be: motor winding, power board, tachymetric generator, motor relay on power board, wiring between motor and power board and wiring between tachymetric generator and electronic.
E70 error code could be: faulty NTC sensor, wrong position of NTC sensor or to much limescale on it and finaly wiring between NTC and electronic.

Good Morning Jazy, this is JK. I see that you are receiving an error message E70. The E70 error means that the Main Control Board is not seeing the correct water supply. I would suggest swapping the hot and cold hoses. Hope this helps!

1 Answer

It is stopping in the cycle and reading E70 on the screen.


Hi,

The main cause for this e70 error is that the hoses would have swapped (hot to cold, cold to hot). It means the washer isn't getting cold water.Try to switch between the hoses. Another possibility is the faucets are not turned on.
Hope this solution will fix your problem for sure.


Thank You !!

E70 error code repeatedly comes up when attempting to start a load and you have to cancel and restart 4-6 times before the load washes; again at the end of a load it will come up with the E70 error and to...


Means you are not getting cold water into unit..Either cold water hose is connected to the wrong hose or cold water faucet is not turned on..You can solve this by connecting hose to cold water faucet and cold water inlet on washer..
