    we ended up needing a new control board. The tech told me the company he worked for would charge us $375, and charged us $200 to replace it on the side. Did I get ripped off??? Too late now, but my washer works!

To clear latest stored error code:
• Turn the Program Knob to the start position, Spin Only.
• Press Start/Pause to start the cycle and save it.
• Press Cancel to stop the cycle and turn off the LEDs.
• Press Cancel again to turn on the LEDs.
• Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Start/Pause buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release buttons.
• Turn the program knob clockwise 7 clicks from the Start Position. The control will signal the last error code.
• Press and hold the Options and Start/Pause buttons for 3 seconds. The code will be cleared.
• Exit Diagnostic Mode to return the washer to normal operation.
a) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord OR
b) Turn the program knob clockwise 2 or 3 clicks after the Start Position. Press Options and Start/Pause buttons
together for a few seconds until wash cycle LEDs appear.

My front load affinity will not start, says pause


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire washer, FAFW3517KW, is constantly showing you pause, when you press start it flashes the pause again, and that the door lock light does not come on. You could be seeing a couple of different possible reasons this is happening such as your control panel, door lock assembly, or door switch. Since it could be any of the underlying issues I would recommend having a professional come out to the home and repair the washer. -Matt

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you are receiving multiple error codes on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# FAHE4044MW. I see that the error codes showing are "E", "PA", "AU", "U5", and "5E". I suggest resetting your washer, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, start any cycle on your washer. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

New frigidaire washer (affinity)


Kimberely, The err 47 means that the control board is not sensing the door lock. First try unplugging the machine for 1 minute and see if it comes back to normal. If it doesn't put it into the door lock test, with the door closed, by doing the following: Turn the program knob to drain spin. Press pause cancel to turn off the LEDs. Within 5 seconds, press and hold the option and pause cancel buttons until the LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release the buttons. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Turn the program knob 4 clicks from the start position clockwise, the door lock solenoid will activate. The door should be locked. Turn the knob one more click clockwise and it should unlock. You can toggle back and forth to test it. If the door lock is working and you are still getting this code, then its a control board problem. You should call for factory service. If you have any more questions, you can email me at catriver1@gmail.com Catriver...post back.
