Affinity Washing Machine, 3 months old, pauses during cycle. Does not give any error code. Have tried different cycles, eventually it will run the cycle. Doesn't happen with every cycle, yet. Switches to PAUSE over and over.

Did you figure out this problem? I think these machines are JUNK! We purchased our first Frigidaire Affinity in April 2010 & by September it started ripping our clothes apart. Not every cycle. At first we thought it was the dryer but nope - it was the washer. Something to do with the drum. We had it replaced in October 2010. Then after the truck dropped off the replacement, I tried doing my first load of laundry. It lite up & did nothing. Something to do with the motor. Again, we had a 3rd machine replacement. I wanted to give up, get my money back & go buy something else but I wanted it to match my dryer so I was kinda stuck. Our 3rd machine is now going to pause constantly during a cycle. I've read up on it & tried various things such as less soap, checking the drain etc. & nothing has changed this problem. I'm calling the store on Monday & demanding my money back & they can take back the dryer too. I have a feeling this might be a bit of a fight but I am disappointed with the results of this machine. We've lost about $100+ in clothing from the first machine, plus all the down time in all 3 of these machines not working & having to worry about going to do laundry elsewhere.

My washer keeps pausing during the cycle


Hi claire64 - Usually when "PAU" displays on the screens, it indicates that the unit thinks that the door is not securely latch when you started the cycle, or the cycle has been interrupted. Try pressing "PAUSE/CANCEL" or "START/PAUSE" once to resume washer. If proves to be ineffective, try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes, restart unit and resume cycle. If fault reoccurs, then it typically means that the unit either has a faulty door latch assembly or a communication error from the control board. Since there are cost differences in parts, it is always a good idea to have a service tech properly diagnose your appliance.

Stuck on pause


You either have a bad control board or a bad communication to the timer of the unit and the timer needs to be replaced. If you do not see an alpha-numeric error code displayed I would contact a professional.

My frigidare affinity dryer is only starting on delicates and touch up, nothing above that


Hi.

If machine runs only in low heath cycles, then there is a problem with timer control, low heath selector, or heating assembly (cycling thermostat).

The first thing to do would be locating the tech sheet. The sheet is tucked inside an envelope located inside the control panel assembly. In the tech sheet you will find instructions to run a diagnostic cycle. The diagnostic cycle will return an error code that will help locating the fault.

With different Frigidaire Affinity dryers you need to press and hold Pause Cancel and SELECT for about ten seconds, then leave, put selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT and press START to run the diagnostic cycle. The procedure for this specific model is described in the tech sheet.

Need to know buttons to press to self clean.


Taken from the Use and Care guide:

To clean and freshen the washer, perform the System Clean Cycle. For best results use the System Clean Cycle once a month. To begin the cycle, press and hold the Spin Speed and Options buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds until the display changes to "CLn".

IMPORTANT
Items left in washer while performing the System Clean Cycle will cause a severe out-of-balance situation that could damage the washing machine.

REMOVE ALL ITEMS FROM WASH DRUM before filling the detergent chamber with one (1) cup of liquid chlorine bleach OR one (1) pouch of TIDE® WASHING MACHINE CLEANER. DO NOT use both. Press Start/Pause to begin.

If the System Clean Cycle is canceled or paused during the cycle, the washer will go through 2 rinse cycles to clean the drum of any residual bleach before unlocking the door.

Cheers!
