Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Washer is draining water into pedestool


I appreciate your post, friend!

It sounds like you could be experiencing a possible leak within your drain pump, gasket, or hoses. You may want to have a technician come out to help diagnosis the leak and locate the cause. This can prevent you from making unnecessary part purchases and avoid any future issues with your Frigidaire washer. If you need further help please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

Frigidaire washer will not wash or spin


Hello friend, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Frigidaire washer will not wash or spin. Typically if your washer is not spinning it could be a potential issue with your drain hose. I would check to assure that there are no kinks in your drain line or that the drain hose is not too long. Those could be some possibilities.
If the drain line is clear you could be experiencing an issue with your timer or drain pump. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to come out and properly diagnosis your washer. I hope this helps. -Matt

What does E23 mean?


Hello Friend, that's a great question!

If you are getting error E23 on your Frigidaire washer, it usually means one of three things: your drain pump relay has possibly failed, a wire may be disconnected from the pump, or your main control board probably needs replacing. One of the best ways to determine if this is a false error code is to reset the power to your appliance by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker for about ten seconds. If the error code persists, it would be advisable to contact an experienced appliance repair tech to assist further.

E21 frigidaire affinity won't drain


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are receiving an E21 code on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000E, and it is not draining. The E21 code can possibly mean that the water is not draining out fast enough. Please check the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Also, make sure that your home's drain pipes are not clogged as well. This could also be a false code. Try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and start 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-

Why does my washing machine does not drain the water inspite of replacing with a new drain pump


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# GLWS1339CS, will not drain the water even if you program it to just drain. I also see that you just replaced the drain pump in your appliance. I suggest checking the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged. I would also check your home's drain system to make sure that it is not clogged either. 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 washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Lafw7000lw reviews


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the fabric softener cup in your Frigidaire washer, model# LAFW7000LW, never drains and is filled with dirty water. This is a result of the siphoning action and is part of the normal operation of your washer. You may remove the water by removing the dispenser drawer and draining the water into the empty drum or sink. 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 washer status has changed. Hope this is helpful.
