Frigidaire affinity washing machine fault codes

Frigidaire affinity washer error code e21 / Frigidaire affinity washing machine error code e21

Meaning:

Water failing to pump out fast as it should

Recommended repairs:

First check the drain hose for restrictions- and if you find any restrictions, correct the problem.

But if there are no restrictions, start the washer and check for 120v AC supply at the drain pump- or whatever specs say (on the pump label depending on where you live.

Now, you’ll want to replace the control board if you found zero.

On the other hand -you got 120v AC- carefully remove the pump and check for blockage.

You obviously want to remove any restrictions and then see if the problem is solved- if not, you might have to replace the entire pump(Here is a compatible drain pump replacement part).

 

Frigidaire affinity washer error code e23 / Frigidaire affinity washer error code e24

Oftentimes the problem is caused by a bad drain pump relay.

But you need to be aware that a wire could be off of the pump or even a failed pump.

Suggested fixes:

Remove the pump then check for any blockage (and clear them).

If you don’t see a blockage, go ahead and start the washer then again check for 120v AC(at the pump motor)when it should be draining.

0 volts means a bad board (so replace the console control board) while 120 volts means the board is fine and you might instead need to replace the pump itself

 

Frigidaire affinity washer error code E31

Meaning:

The pressure sensor cannot communicate with control board

What to do:

Inspect the wiring(the wiring between the pressure sensor and the control board) and in case of defective wiring, correct the affected spots.

Now, if this does not solve the problem, consider replacing the control board.
