Frigidaire Affinity LTF7000ES0 not spinning
« on: December 12, 2016, 10:48:52 PM »

Hi, I'm having a confusing problem with my Frigidaire front load washer. It did not spin at all during a delicate wash cycle. I put it in the spin only cycle, and that wouldn't spin either. I tried it on every speed. The pump worked and the washer tumbled, but no spin.

So then I put the washer in diagnostic mode and went through all the tests. They all seemed to work perfect, including the door lock. The error code it gave was E47, door latch, right? But the door is latching.

I got stuck in diagnostic mode and had to disconnect power to the washer. After that, I ran the washer through a normal cycle and it worked fine. Then I ran the spin only cycle and it worked, too. So, I ran a couple loads of laundry through on normal. It worked fine. So then I tried to run a delicate cycle and again it failed to spin. I tried the spin only after that and it didn't work again, either.

I put it back in diagnostic mode and ran the spin test to get my clothes dried out.

I haven't disassembled the washer yet to physically check the door latch but do you have any idea what is going on? Is it a control board problem? Or the door latch? It latches and locks but maybe is not communicating that it is?

If I remember correctly, the wax motor in the door latch is not energized in the diagnostic cycle. There is no time delay on the door unocking. (See attached graphic) This may account for it passing in the diagnostics but not working all the time during normal use. Check the connectors at the door lock, but you may just have a bad door lock assy.
