Affinity washer not spinning

All of a sudden the washer will not spin... I hear what appears to be the sucking sound of the pump, but no movements

    I have the same problem. Additionally, the drum ended up being stuck. The tech fixed the drum issue but failed to listen to me to diagnose the spinning issue. Also, the machine shuts off mid-cycle. The timer will say 43 minutes then shuts off (after my clothes are soapy and wet).

    I am having a similar problem. The washer turns when it starts which makes me think the belt is not broken. When it is supposed to be spinning really fast it doesn't, just doesn't move at all. When the cycle is done and you take the clothes out you have to ring them out before you dry them? Any ideas on how or where to start to fix it. Husband took the back off and the motor spins by hand and the belt is fine????

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.

Hello! I am having problems with my washer's spin cycle. It appears that the water is staying in Drum


If you unit is spinning but not emptying the water then I would suspect the water pump which is part #134051200. There may be something that has been sucked into the intake of the pump that is keeping it from activating, but you will have to open it up to find out.

I have an affinity washer and dryer. The last loand did not complete its cycle. It is partially full of water, but not enough to seap out. Itmakes a buzzing sound and will not spin. It is not the type of...


It sounds like the drain pump has stopped. If it still has water in it and you turn it on (in the spin only cycle) the drain pump should be running and you sould be hearing the water drain. The washer will not spin until the water is out. Depending on how handy you are determines whether you can access the drain pump and remove the obstrustion. There is also a trap to catch debries from going into the pump. This could be plugged, but normally you don't hear a buzz. You hear the drain pump working but no water going out. Good luck

Frigidaire Affinity front load washer will not spin


sounds like the impeller on the drain pump is blocked. Noise could be coins trapped in drum. Check filter thoroughly, if you cannot remove blockage you may have to remove tubes from pump to clear out any blockage.

My washing machine will not spin, it will wash and then make a buzzing sound during the spin cycle


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
