Frigidaire Affinity Front Load Washer Troubleshooting

1. Washer Makes Clanking Sounds

Stop your cycle. Make sure there are no coins or other objects found in the drum. In case you find unnecessary objects, remove them. If the problem persists, check the pump for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged.

2. Washer Makes Thumping Sounds

Stop your cycle. Open the door and redistribute your load manually. Restart the cycle. In cases of wrongly distributed or larger loads, such sounds occur.

3. Washer Is Vibrating During Cycle

Stop your cycle and make sure that the washer is balanced correctly. Level the washer if needed. Once leveled correctly, restart your cycle.

4. Washer Does Not Start

Make sure that your washer is properly connected to power. Check for fuses or breakers. If you are sure that the problem is not power-related, check the water supplies. Turn the water supply on fully. In case the problem persists, the motor might have overheated. Wait for the machine to cool down. If your washer still does not start after an hour, multiple parts might be affected and need to be repaired or replaced. Ask for professional assistance.

5. Washer Will Not Spin

Stop your cycle. Add more clothing, since small loads can prevent the machine from proper spinning. Balance your loads and restart your cycle. In case the problem persists, there might be multiple parts affected that need replacement or repair. Ask for professional assistance.

6. Washer Does Not Drain Properly

Stop your cycle. Make sure that the drain hose is not clogged or pinched. Remove any possible blockages to ensure appropriate drainage. In case the problem persists, replace the drain hose.

7. Washer Does Not Fill

Make sure that the water pressure is at the correct level. Turn the water faucet on and check the pressure of the water. Ensure that the water supply faucets are turned on completely. If the problem persists, make sure that there are no other faucets running, as these can greatly affect water pressure. Restart your cycle. In case turning off other faucets did not solve the error, there might be a more complex problem with your water pressure. Ask for professional assistance.

8. Fixing Error Codes

In case your machine displays an error code, refer to the manual, to fix the error. In case there is no manual available, the official Frigidaire website can help you diagnose your situation.
