Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer
We recently had a thunder storm on Tues & Wed. I hadn't used the washer since Sunday. I tried to use it last night and there are no lights on it working. It's not the outlet that's not working. Does this washer have a restart button on it anywhere? Please help!
During a lightning storm, a lightning strike could have induced a high voltage surge in your incoming power lines. Left unprotected from these power surges, the weakest link ( normally low voltage electronic controls) are the most susceptable. Just because you had power available at the wall receptacle after a storm doesn't mean that your washer control system wasn't exposed to one of these surges and got damaged. On the contrary, it is extremely likely that the washer took a 'hit' and was damaged.Other devices plugged into the same receptacle may have survived that hit because electricity travels the path of least resistance.. In this case.. that path may have been thru your washer.. My point being is that your washer could have sustained a power surge and was damaged so don't rule that out. Of course, that surge could have taken an internal fuse or other component out too..

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
Please help me understand the question you are asking about your Frigidaire washer. Is your washer cutting on and off? Or is it coming on without any one pushing start? Is it flashing an error code? Thank you for any additional information you can provide. I look forward to your response. -Matt

This could be a Control Board Problem. I assume you have power cycled the machine and the issue continues, any recent electrical storm activity in your area?...........Rich
