First of all put off the machine from the main power supply then pull out the wire from the wall for some time then put it on again reset the program on the washing machine and operate it but if the the problem remain then you can get back to me for further solution.

Thanks for using fixya.

    If after the above solution and the problem still remain then apply the bellow instruction to solve the problem.

    you have a washing machine that takes forever to fill? Does the hot or
    cold water pour in at barely a trickle? This is a very common washing
    machine problem. If you have a little mechanical aptitude you can fix
    this yourself and save yourself a $150-200 appliance repair bill.

    Difficulty: Moderately Challenging

    Things You'll Need:

    • Basic tools

    1. 1

      shut off the water at the valves in the wall behind the washer. This
      may be difficult if they are old and corroded. If you can't get them to
      turn all the way off you may need to turn off the water to the entire

    2. 2

      you have got the water shut off you remove the hoses from their
      connections at the valves and from the back of the washing machine.
      You'll need to push the washer out 2-3 feet to do this. UNPLUG the
      washing machine from the electric outlet as well, no need to chance
      getting a shock! Inspect and clean these hoses making sure they are in
      good shape. It is possible that they will have small screens in them
      that are full of mineral deposits and other gunk. If this is the case
      clean all that stuff out and hook things back up and you may have
      solved your problem. If the hoses are in bad shape you should replace
      them. You can get them at any 'big box' store or at a hardware store.

    3. 3

      than likely you will join me here at step 3. The problem usually isn't
      the hoses. Take a look at the back of the washing machine where the
      hoses were connected. The connectors should have little metal screens
      in them. Are they full of mineral deposits and gunk? If they are, clean
      them out after removing them carefully or knock that stuff out with a
      toothpick. If there was a LOT of this stuff you may have solved your
      problem, so you may want to hook things up and try again.

    4. 4

      won't be surprised if you join me here at step 4. It isn't usually the
      gunk in the little screens in the connectors either. It's usually a
      very simple control valve that has gone kaput. That's it pictured
      below. The plastic parts are the connectors that stick out of the back
      of the washing machine and the rest of the device controls the water

    5. 5

      are pretty much at the point of no return now. If you've come this far
      and have some pretty good mechanical aptitude you are going to be able
      to fix this for $20-$40 and another hour of your time. The other
      choices are 1)Appliance repair service call, could be $150-$200 and 2)
      buy new washer $200-300. If the washer is old at all, which I bet it is
      and you don't want to proceed the best plan might be just buying a new

    6. 6

      you're here at step 6 with me I'll assume you are a diehard like me and
      will fix this if it doesn't kill you first. The rest is not bad. There
      are quite a few different ways of getting into washing machines to get
      to this valve. If it looks easy, like there is an access panel
      specifically for this component, then open it up and unhook the valve
      and pull it out. Otherwise, I'm going to direct you to
      the web site This web site has instructions for getting
      access to the inside of many different types of washing machines. It's
      just not possible for me to list all that info here.

    7. 7

      so I'm assuming that Uncle Harry has instructed you on how to get into
      your washing machine and you've removed the old control valve. You
      might have even bought the replacement part while you were there, as
      Uncle Harry has a pretty good parts store too. If not, hit Ebay with
      the part number from the valve. There are several good parts stores
      that sell these types of components that list on Ebay regularly.

    8. 8

      that you have the replacement part, simply hook it up reversing your
      disassembly steps. Nothing to it, a couple screws, water hose and
      clamp, and 2 electrical connections. Hook your water connections back
      up, turn on the water valve, plug it in and you are ready to go.

    9. 9

      I bet you say something like 'Wow I've never seen the water fill that fast!' (Everyone Does)

    Thanks once again.

My front load affinity will not start, says pause

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire washer, FAFW3517KW, is constantly showing you pause, when you press start it flashes the pause again, and that the door lock light does not come on. You could be seeing a couple of different possible reasons this is happening such as your control panel, door lock assembly, or door switch. Since it could be any of the underlying issues I would recommend having a professional come out to the home and repair the washer. -Matt

Frigidaire washer starts to fill with water then stops

That is not the solution.

Start the machine and immediatly press the "Start" and "Pause/cancel" button at the same time. Then you will get and ERROR code. Look on the cheat sheet packed with the machine to find out what is really wrong. That will give you the real answer.

Err 10 message on Fridgidaire front load washer

The E10 error indicates a long fill error meaning the machine thinks it took to long to fill with water.
            We recommend u to check that the drain tube is now stuck to far into the stand pipe and possible causing as siphoning problem, and that the screens on the water valve inlet are cleaned and not slowing the water flow.
             u can hook the drain hose off, forcethe  water through it with a water hose, unclog the stinky mess and  hook it back up again and  work it.. tat woul do..
Plz rate this solution.. thank you..

Frigidaire front load washer won't stop filling water and e30

After a long day of trying to find out why my washer would not stop filling with water I decided to remove the inlet valve of the washer.I found a video on youtube that shows how to do this. All advice I found said that the valve would have to be replaced to fix the problem however I knew that the hot water did not do this only the cold. I removed the valve component and blew it all out with a air compresser to remove any debri that may have gotten into it, and it worked. so before you replace the valve component.try cleaning it out first it may save you 80.00.

Washer Pauses and Shuts down Repeatedly

Check the cold water line into the unit. Remove the hose from the washer and clean the screen. flush the line while it is disconnected into a bucket or small garbage can. Your washer wont advance without a fill and most fills/rinses are with cold water
