Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are receiving an E58 code on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF8000FE. The E58 states that it is a high current on the motor phase. This could possibly be a false code, as well. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at the circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. 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-

Hi Susan, this is JK. I understand that you are receiving an error E56 on your washer. This error E56 is indicating a high motor current, the motor has overheated. The washer motor will stop when it is overheated, allow the motor to cool down and attempt to wash again. If the problem persists, you would need to contact a service provider to test the motor, motor pulley, tub pulley and the bearings. Hope this helps!

Good Morning Gerald, thank you for your question!

If you are getting an error code E48, it usually means that the board thinks the door PTC (positive temperature coefficient) circuit is closed. This particular part is the wax motor on the door lock. One of the best ways to determine if this is a false error code is to reset the power to the appliance by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker for about ten minutes. If the error code persists, it would be advisable to contact an experienced appliance repair tech to assist further.

Best regards!

Hello Daniel Huntley - Typically error code E59 indicates that that washer is not detecting a tacho signal for about three seconds. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. Certified technicia will need to remove the belt from the motor, spin the motor pulley, diagnose the speed control board and etc.

If you have no display and you have power to the machine, then you will need to replace the "control board". Here is the part you need.

1. Unplug the washer

2. Pull the washer out to tilt it back so you can

reach the screws below the front panel and

remove it. (You will need something to catch

the water once the hose is removed from

the bottom of washer)

3. Loosen the bolt with the sliver clamp on the

bottom of the washer. The water will begin to

come out while your loosening the clamp. (Do

not remove any GREEN clamps)

4. Once the water is out, you can stick your hand

inside the hose to clean it out.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle.Inthis case the flow from the inlet valve is to be checked, check for dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:


Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

If you cant access the drain pump from the front then you will need to pull the machine out and tilt it back as far as possible safely, this will allow you access to the bottom of the machine and the drain pump. You will need a basin to catch any water that will come out when you remove the drain pump. The pump should only be held in by 1 or 2 screws and pulls or twists off. If the pump is clear then you will need to remove the pipe that goes from the pump to the drum to check for blocks, commonly a sock is blocking it. hope this helps

All those problems happening through wash cycle could be as simple as replacing the control board, or as difficult as having 4 different problems. Do you want to tackle them?

Could be a clogged pump but it is almost always oversudsing due to incorrect amounts or kind of detergent being used. If the artificial intel monitoring the motor's amp draw gets a slight current change, then it determines it needs to get rid of suds. If it can't resolve the issue it goes into a suds lockdown and declares an error.

Unclog your washing machine pump.

This is a tip for those who own a Frigidaire ATF8000 washing machine model which does not drain properly and/or makes a loud noise while draining.
For me, it was something caught at the end of the hose trying to get into the pump. This made a terrible loud noise when the washer was in spin cycle, working the pump to try to drain the water.

First of all, unplug the power cord.
Since the new Frigidaire ATF8000 models have no easy access panel to remove in the front, you have to unscrew the back panel to begin.
I found that I could not do anything except unplug the two wires clipped to the pump from the back of the machine, since the Askoll M85 pump is located near the front.

So I carefully laid the washing machine on one of it's sides so that I could get to the pump from the opening on the bottom of the washer.
This was easiest since now I have two ways of seeing the pump. But it still would be better if Frigidaire didn't block access from the front.
So now you should be able to move the green metal clip holding the big black hose that comes down from the drum attached to the pump. There will be water spilling out as you remove the hose. I put some dish towels underneath to catch anything.
In my case, as soon as I unattached the black hose, I found a piece of metal bra wire halfway into the pump. I removed this, re-attached the hose, raised the washer back upright, re-attached the two wires clipped to the pump, screwed on the back panel and plugged the washer back in.
And now the machine works beautifully once again.

Hope this helps.
