Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My Affinity washer fails to start the wash cycle. When the start button is pressed, it makes the sound similar to the door being locked, then the display reads PAU, I assume pause. Nothing happens thereafter.

The message means the cycle has been interrupted most likely due to intermittent activation of the door lock mechanism as manifested by clicking sound as if the machine is trying to lock the door. Push the door in while the machine is starting to check if the message goes away. I'm suspecting a door lock and switch assembly failure and you may have to replace it. You can verify if this is indeed the issue by checking for any saved fault code, especially E41 which is a door switch fault code.

The electronic control has self diagnostics error codes that can be displayed. Wake the machine by pressing any button and wait for 5 seconds then press and hold the Start/Pause and Cancel buttons simultaneously. The error code is displayed as long as the buttons are held. An "E" followed by two numbers, a number and a letter, or two letters indicates the fault code. The control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, and Final Spin indicator lights will flash. Indicate any fault code for the appropriate advice and action needed to address it.

WASHER WON'T LOCK DOOR


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that that you are having trouble with the door locking on your Frigidaire Affinity dryer, model# ATF7000E. I also see that the lights come on the dial but the door will not lock when you press the button for it to lock. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, run any cycle. 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.

-Best Regards-

Not working


Good Afternoon James,

I see that you are still having trouble with your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000E, finishing and now starting a load, even after replacing the door lock.

I would start by making sure that your washer door is completely closed.

Next I would check to make sure that your washer controls are not locked. You will see a "LOC" code if the controls are locked. To get them out of the lock mode, press and hold the "Options" and "Select" buttons at the same time for 10 seconds.

If you are still having trouble you will want to give your washer a hard reset. You can do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes.

Once power is restored, if you are still having trouble with your appliance either not starting or not completing the cycle, I would recommend contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Hoover nextra washing machine door wont lock / cycle start


sounds like the door lock mechanism. if this cannot signal it has engaged, to the board, no other function will work (you don't want the washer going with the door open, trust me :) )

I was using the spin cycle to spin water from a scarf. I decided to stop the stop so I hit cancel button. Now the washer door is locked and I can't open it.


• If the cycle is interrupted during spin, it will take approximately 2-3 minutes for the door lock to release. DO NOT force open the door. • To stop the washer, press Cancel.

Turn on machine door locks ready to run but water doesnt start to cycle


Affinity Service manual

The brain might not be getting door lock confirmation due to corrosion in the lock terminals or the door lock itself could be broken.

Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't start


Try holding the 'options' & 'select' buttons together till the door lock button comes on. This is the child lock function. You can do it again for the lock to come off. Hold down for over 3 seconds

My Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't start: the "door locked" button doesn't come on though the door is closed properly


If the washer fills with water, but will not start the wash cycle or spin, it is 1 of to things. the most common for frigidaire front load affinitys is the door lock assembly. I have had to replace numerous of these. if the door lock indicator is not on when it tries to wash, you need to replace the door lock assembly. if the door lock indicator is on, but wont wash, it is likly that you have a bad motor control board.

MY AFFINITY WASHER WONT WORK


It is the door lock that may be broken, that's what happened with my maching last summer. The lock is made of plastic if you can imagine. So if you slam the door it can break. A washing machine gets wear and tear how can closing a door be owners fault?

This is a crappy machine in terms of maintenance, it is a maintenance nightmaire!!

Affinity front load #ATF6000ES


The latch may just be stuck. Try pressing in on the door at or near the latch point and start then pause / cancel a cycle (while still pressing inward).

if that fails, put the washer through a spin/drain only cycle and let it run through( no need to press on the door).

If you are still unable to unlock the door you will have to call for service.
