I fixed mine by replacing the door lock they are about 50.oo
The door lock has two locks, one is instant when you push start the other is a time lock, so you cant open the door for a little if you stopped it during the spin cycle. The problem is what they call the WAX switch or heater. When power is applied to this WAX lock it takes 30 to 60 sec. to lock and to unlock when power is removed.
The machine will not spin, if this lock is not working correctly.
You cant bypass it by jumping the power from one side of the shitch to the other. The board moniters the power draw and when the switch closes the lock contacts. You can how ever open up the lock very easy and bend the contacts closer to get you by for the weekend. unplug washer, remove the two screws on the back of the top panel behind the washer, remove top, open front door and remove the two screws that hold the lock, reach in an pull up the lock, remove wires, now open up lock and bend the piont contacts in side or install new switch.

Why my frigidaire affinity wont spin


Good Afternoon Iliana, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

If your washer does not spin, often it is because your washer cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does your washer make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, your 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.

Frigidaire Affinity Front Load Washer wont drain.


If your pump had something in it, it wouldn't have had to clog it, but rather just stopped the internal spinning. My coworker removed a dollar bill from his water pump, and it fixed the problem he was having (same as you've described) and the water pump worked well after it was re-installed.
Worst case scenario, you reinstall it and it doesn't drain and you spend 40 or 50 bucks online for the part. I would reinstall and see if it works. I'd bet on it.

My frigidaire affinity washer doesnt spin during the rinse cycle.


Hi javierc569,

Before the Spin Cycle should start, all water must be drained out of the machine. If it does not start, it could likely mean the Drain pump may be clogged. Please follow my below tip on the fix:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER...

If this does not help, the drain pump may be faulty.

Kind Regards

Affinity washer not spinning


It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Frigidaire affinity front loading washer


Any E20 code means your washer doesn't drain.  More than likely there is a screw, nail, coin, bobby pin, etc locking up your pump and causing it not to drain.  Keep in mind that your washer has a 1 yr warranty but some service companys will charge for this kind of repair because it is not technically covered under warranty.
