Hi Lynn on machines like yours the drum itself in the back is what goes bad because it’s just a plastic piece like a washer/bolt those sheer off over time and go bad causing the washer to not be able to spin

SOURCE: my frigidaire gallery front loader washing machine doesnt work.

Sounds like you have something in the pump and if there is a filter it might be dirty.
You will want to unplug the machine and take the back panel off and pull the pump out of the machine.You might want to take it outside an do this since there will be water in the machine and will make a mess.
If there is a filter it will be located behind the front panel below the door.There should be two or three screws that hold this panel on.They will be easy to access from the front with a screwdriver or a cordless drill and should be a #2 philips.

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire affinity front loader washer

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.

Disconnect power to the machine. Open the washer door then look for the retaining hoop securing the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Stretch the retainer spring of the door seal retaining hoop then remove it.

Carefully peel off part of the door seal from the lip of the door opening near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove enough of the door seal to gain access to the door lock and switch assembly.

Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.

Take the door lock and switch assembly out of the machine. Disconnect the electrical connections then connect it to the new door lock and switch assembly.

Put the new door lock and switch assembly back into position in the front panel and secure it with the securing screws.

Properly put the eased part of the door seal back over the lip of the door opening then secure it with the retaining hoop.

    SOURCE: my frigidaire affinity front load washer ATF6000 will agitate but wont spin

    Hi burwellkaren - Is the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose or pump is clogged and needs cleaning. If not, then the unit may possibly be experiencing an issue with the control board not communication correctly, faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or something more severe like a damaged tub. I will personally recommend contacting a certified technician to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.

    Why will my affinity front load washer not spin?


    No spin, try these:

    Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.

    Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.


    Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)

    Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.

    On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
    The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

    You need to replace the door lock mechansim. Fairly easy to do yourself, just pull the spring strap off the rubber door gasket and remove 2 screws holding door lock. Install new door lock and re-install door gasket and spring strap, and WALLA! she works:)

    My Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't start: the "door locked" button doesn't come on though the door is closed properly


    If the washer fills with water, but will not start the wash cycle or spin, it is 1 of to things. the most common for frigidaire front load affinitys is the door lock assembly. I have had to replace numerous of these. if the door lock indicator is not on when it tries to wash, you need to replace the door lock assembly. if the door lock indicator is on, but wont wash, it is likly that you have a bad motor control board.
