Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Frigidaire Affinity ATFB7000EG0 front load washer. There are two main issues with it. One is an E10 error which is usually drain related. When this occurs, I can wiggle the hose in the back and hear water drain off. Once this happens the cycle will resume after pressing start. Also, the washer will not perform final spin. It tumbles during the wash, but thats it. I've read it can be related to the door lock sensor. Can someone provide me with directions on locating the lock, replacing it, and where to purchase it? Thanks

It is indeed a door lock and switch assembly (part number 131763202) issue if the washer tumbles properly during the wash cycle but does not advance to the high speed spin cycle. It is a safety feature of the washer not to advance to the high speed spin cycle if the door lock is not activated or faulty to prevent injury should the door is opened accidentally. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Check the connection (J2 and J3) between the door lock and switch assembly and the control board. Make sure the connections are good and snug fit. Reseat the connections several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up on the connectors and terminals.

Check the wiring harness connections on the door lock and switch assembly and do the same to the connectors. Replace the door lock and switch assembly should all connections are found to be good and snug fit.

The door lock and switch assembly can be accessed with the removal of the wire hoop holding the door boot to the outer lip of the door opening and peeling off the part of the boot near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel then take the assembly out of the washer cabinet.

Disconnect the wires from the door lock and switch assembly and connect it to the new one. Secure it to the front panel and put the door boot back over the outer lip of the door opening and secure it with the wire hoop.

    With regard to the drain problem, it is somehow related to the spin issue as the washer will not spin when water has not drained properly prior to spinning. Check to make sure that the drain hose is not clogged or kinked and that the drain pump is working properly.

Washer stops shortly after startup with error code E10. We have to keep restarting it about 5 times before it will engage. Help.

Hello Christina Steppi - Typically error code E10 indicates that the unit takes too long to fill with water. Is the incoming water flow normal? If it is not, the unit could possibly have a faulty pressure switch, inlet valve assembly or main control board. I would strongly recommend consulting a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. You can often locate a qualified tech through the manufacturer website.

Code E10 Washer keeps turning of before the first cycle is over

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Error E10 keeps popping up and washer stops 2 or 3 times during cycle and have to reset it

E10 means that your cold water is coming in too slow, disconnect the cold water hose and check to see if the screen on your washing machine is clogged. If the screen is clean and the hose has good pressure then you will need to replace the water valve on your machine--- this is the piece that the hoses directly connect to.

I am getting a EFO then E10 error message after I start a load of clothes...which means I have to cancel the load.

E10/EFO error code is an indication of a slow fill, took to long to fill, no fill or the fill water could be siphoning out the drain hose as it's filling with water.

Check to make sure that the drain hose is not stuck too far down the stand pipe and causing the water to siphon out. Check the cold and hot water supply to the washer for any restrictions. If you have a slow fill remove the hoses from the washer and check for restricted filter screens in the water inlet valve. Check for any restricted hose screens too.

What does the code E10 mean? The washer flashes that code and won't spin.This is and Affinity front load washer.


When error code E10 appears just take the cold water off the inlet tube to the washing machine, then clean the screen using light force air then replace the hose .Finally turn the water back on.This should solve the problem. If not the door latch needs adjusting or tightening up. It's probably something really simple like a loose screw.

Thank you !!

My Frigidaire Affinity Model atf6000fs0 Washer presents two error codes at beginning of each cycle - EF0 after about one minute and the E10 after a few minutes - cycle stops there. Nothing else happens....

My Affinity (M - ATF6000FS0) fails to an E-20 code. The troubleshooting guide helped; however, the code continues to come in. The drain line is clear to the pump, but the pump sounds like it is failing. Guidance, insight, feedback....please!

I have a Fridgidaire Front Loader Washer _ Affinity. It has an error message flashing. E10. What does that mean? What do I do to fix it?

I have a Fridgidaire Front Loader Washer _ Affinity that flashed the E10 error code. I also had the problem with the fabric softener dispenser not emptying, and staying full of water. The problem was the cold water filter on the back of the washing machine that was semi-plugged. Cleaned the filter and now works perfectly. My machine is no longer flashing the Error code 10. The dispenser works perfectly.

E10 code

I believe E10 means there is a draining problem. Check your drain hose and see if that is where it should be and not clogged. If that is okay, most likely your pump is clogged.
