    Sounds like you have a bad door lock ... some models have a door lock release if you take the top off the washer ... its right on the door lock in the in side of the washer... its a white tag

Does it move at all in the spin cycle? If it does, try to open the door during the spin cycle and tell me if the door opens or stays locked.

Frigidaire gallery front load washer dripping sound


With any front load machine manufacturers suggest to leave the door open after cycles to help evaporate the water - this is even done in top loading machines nowadays. Also clean the unit with bleach water and rinse in high temp water cycles.

Everything works but it does not spin


There is an auxiliary switch in the door lock and switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. This is a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during the spin cycle and the machine will not spin unless the switch is activated. The machine works except advancing to the spin cycle and this signifies that the auxiliary switch cannot be activated and the door lock and switch assembly is faulty. Replaced the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) to address the issue. Click on the link below for the complete and detailed procedure.

I have a Affinity frigidaire front load washer and need to replace part number 131763202. The model number of the washer is ATF6000FS1 Thank you in advance


Disconnect power then open the door and remove the spring-hoop assembly that secures the door gasket. Peel off the part of the door gasket near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel then pull the door lock and switch assembly out. Transfer the wires to the new door lock and switch assembly then install into place. Put the door gasket back and secure it with the spring-hoop assembly.

My frigidaire gallery washing machine model GLTF1670ASO will not unlock the door. Removing and plugging again the electrical connectors did not help. I suspect timer is shot. Any other things I should look...


I would say your door lock is faulty, much more common than timers. Unfortunately, you need to break the door catch to open door. If you take off the top, then use a flat head screwdriver (oh, and turn power off), and pry at door switch. Replace the door catch (part#131763310) and the door lock assembly (131763202) and that should fix your problem.
