Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer My washer & dryer are brand new 2 days old! I have ran about 8-10 loads through them now and EVERY time the washer spins it vibrates the whole house. The install/care and maintenance guide only says open machine and re arrange some clothing??? its a front end loader. when I pause it to open it the program resets its self. I should be able to assume you dont re-arrange clothes in a front end loader atleast not EVERY time. I followed instalation instructions and have re read them 3 times now. The machine is level front, back & sides. (no pedestal)

There's a few things that cause this and there may be no easy answer. Is the washer on the second floor? Is the washer on a ceramic tile floor? ...wait a minute, you said it vibrated the whole house so this makes me think the floor has some "give". If any of these there is no easy fix. I've seen ONE thing that does work though. It's a pedestal that spans under the washer AND dryer, one long one which distributes the weight and vibration. I don't know where to get one but I do know they are out there. One of my customers had one and I took notice because the floor was ceramic tile and the washer wasn't vibrating all over the place. It was very stable.

    Sorry I should have been more clear. The machine is in the basement on concrete but as all basement floors the floor is always sloped toward the drain in case of flood(the slope is very minor that you cant see it) so it moves when it vibrates, up against the wall, the freezer, dryer anything thats in its reach of the plug in. it doesn't just vibrate it literally jumps of the floor. Should it not have a counterbalance to prevent this from happening and is it possible there is a defect, because it happens EVERY time and severely. If i could post a video i would demonstrate the intensity of it.

I had the same issue when I picked up the washer myself and forgot to remove all of the shipping bolts that secure the tub for transport. It still allows you to run all of the cycles, but does not give the tub the freedom to move it's full range and causes that excess energy to vibrate out and shake everything around it.

Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer locks the door then it doesn't start. What's wrong?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the door locks on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000E, and the load does not start. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try 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 appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer won't stop spinning with 1 minute on timer- it continues until I hit cancel. I don't like to babysit a machine but have to make sure it doesn

If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.

Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer: where do i find what efo means on my affinity wash...

Frigidaire, Zanussi, AEG, & More....

EFO = Filter Blocked (low flow) and it is accessible from the bottom front of the machine.

1. there is a blockage in the filter or drain hose.takes too long to drain out.
2. over dosing of powder or liquid. again can cause an air lock in the pump which slows the drain pump down.

Check the filter and drain hose and test again. this fault will only come up at the end of a cycle.
You do not need to reset the machine to get rid of the fault code as this is automatically deleted.

Run an empty load with no detergent in an attempt to get rid of the code.
