I Have a Frigidaire Affinity front load washing machine (ATF6000FS1) which was manufactured in 2008. The unit goes through a full cycle including filling, agitation, and draining but will not go through a spin cycle. Will not spin when put on a spin cycle alone. Items still come out soaking. There is no error #. Most posts I've read suggest a clogged / smelly drain (cleaned that out about 6 months ago), bad door switch (don't think that is it as it cycles through other cycles), or a control board. Thoughts???

• Turn the Program Knob to the start position, Spin Only.

• Press Start/Pause to start the cycle and save it.

• Press Cancel to stop the cycle and turn off the LED's.

• Press Cancel again to turn on the LED's.

• Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Options and Start/Pause buttons until LED's start sequentially chasing, then release buttons.

1. All the LED's will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LED's in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality.

2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment.

3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment.

4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment.

5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened. When the door is opened, the drum light should turn on.

6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble. Once tumbling has started, the Boost Heater (if so equipped) will turn on.

7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The drain pump & door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin.
SAFETY WARNING: If power is removed during this test, the door can be opened. To prevent injury, DO NOT put your hands inside when the tub is rotating.


8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code.

To exit: Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord.

Remove the door lock and measure the resistance of the PTC. If the meter indicates 1 (open) or 0 (short), replace the door lock. If the meter indicates around 1500Ω, replace the control board.
