Try unplugging it for at least 10 min then try the pause/cancel again after plugging it back in.If that would not help, make sure that the hose is not kinked and the screens in the valve are not clogged.

If you see any Door light lit then, Unplug the washer and remove the lower panel of the washer from the front. On the side the door opens you need to reach up behind the panel and locate the door latch assembly, at the bottom there is a tear drop shaped tab that you need to pull down gently but with some pressure pull down on the tab about a 1/4" you will hear a click. Voila the door can now be opened. Leave the door open and plug the machine back in. Try the cancel button again (2x's).

Unless it is Faulty Pressure Switch.Once replaced, it would fix the problem.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How to maintain your Front loader washing machine.

To maintain your front loader washing machine in good working order and to avoid having a service call there are a few simple maintenance tasks to carry out.

1. Every time you carry out a wash before you switch on the unit you should check the door seal for any foreign particles like coins or hair clips and remove them. If they stay there they can then get past the seal and clog up the fluff filter and drain pump which stops the unit from draining.

2. It is also a good idea to wipe the door seal occasionally


3. There is a fluff filter on the front of the unit in the bottom left or right hand corner behind the service flap. Have a small tray, like a baking tray underneath it and open the flap with some sort of flat lever,coin or screw driver. Turn the tap about 1/4 of a turn and collect about a litre of water from the unit. When it has stopped draining unscrew the tap all the way out and clean the fluff filter which is the tap in your hand.

Also have a look in the hole and you will see the drain pump at the back. Make sure this is free of any foreign particles and can turn. Then re-screw the tap back making sure it is tight.

This should be done regularly every 2-3 months to avoid the unit from not draining.

4. Running a cottons 95c wash every 2-3 months kills off any bacteria build up, and cleans out any excess detergent build up. It also stops the unit from smelling.
You can also use a special washing machine cleaner or just white vinegar as a cleaning agent in the detergent tray to help.

5. After every wash keep the door open for about 30 mins to let it dry out as shutting the door is then a perfect environment for bacteria to develop and the door seal to go mouldy and also causing the unit to smell.

6. Lastly take care when removing clothes as zips can catch on the rubber door seal and tear it. This will then leak water at the bottom of the door.

Hope this helps.

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.

Have an affintiy front loader that wont do its final spin. Passes all the diagnostic tests that comes with the machine but when timer goes from 6 min left it just shuts off and gives the end of cycle...

there may be something blocking the drain pump.if you have standing water in the tub use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove the water.
once you remove the water check the drain pump for obstruction the main drain boot the comes from the bottom of the tub to the pump make sure everything is clear.
If you do not find anything then there is a chance that the door lock mechanism is faulty

Machine won't fill with water

Check that the inlet screens on the water supply are not clogged.
Make sure the water is for certain turned on (assuring nothing has changed).

If those are not found to be the problem, then it could be the fill valve(s) or the timer control.

Reply back what you find, and I can help you further.
