Question about Frigidaire Affinity Glacier Blue 3.5 Cu. Ft. I.E.C. Capacity Front Loading Washer, ATF7000EG

1 Answer

Just got the washer--makes a buzzing noise

Just got the Frigidaire washer, and in our first load it's making a buzzing noise after it got into one of the higher cycles. It's not a mechanical buzzing noise, but rather sounds like that of an alarm. I can pause the load and after hitting resume the noise begins again. Did I forget to take out some sort of precautionary plug or something? Water seems to be filling and draining normally, and operation seems to be normal except for the noise. Thanks

    mine does the same, buzzing towards the end of each cycle. It sounds like a 60 Hz electrical buzzing from a solenoid or something. Coming from the door lock area, but not correlated with the door lock cycle. The noise comes and goes smoothly as if the machine is gradually applying more and less voltage. If the door is wiggled or pressed on lightly, it affects the volume of the noise. Pausing cycle stops the noise although the door is still locked, resuming causes the noise to return.

Try some anti-sqeek or soap on your washer belt.

    It could be just a dry belt and pulley.
    You could try the old squeeking car fan belt trick and rub soap on the belt. You can even buy sticks of anti-squeek from automobile outlets.

    An unlikely thing would be the transport supports; be sure you have dismantled certain things behind the machine; according to your manual before you plug in. These struts are put in to prevent the drum from moving while in transit.

Makes a loud buzzing noise when attempting to start cycle

The lock solenoid on the door latch assembly may be hanging up or just noisey. If washer starts and runs then all is ok. If washer wont start, just buzzes, then door latch assembly may have to be changed.

Makes buzzing noise and won't spin or drain

Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump.  If nothing is stuck in the pump replace the pump.  It won't spin until it drains, so fixing the drain problem will fix the spin.  You can get at the drain pump by taking off the bottom panel.

Buzzing - will not spin or drain water

This noise is probably the pump trying to start but will most likely be obstructed.Drain the machine manually by lowering the drain hose into a bucket or bowl and then remove blockage.
