My Frigidaire Front Load Washer Keeps Saying Door Is Open. The Code Was E8a Saying Low Voltage. What Should I Do To Fix It?
Most front-loaders we test have a claimed capacity of to cubic feet, and readers ask whether these big machines can wash small loads. “A front-loader should do a good job cleaning a small load,” says Handel. “Unlike top-loaders, front-loaders do not rely on clothes rubbing up against each other to get them clean.”
Some front-load washers, however, can’t be stacked, and you'll see this noted in the ratings. The LG Signature WM9555HKA , $6,555, for example, has a detergent dispenser on top of the washer that you need access to. And the Samsung FlexWash WV65M9955AV , $6,955, boasts a mini top-load washer atop a full-sized front-loader.
Two words. STAY AWAY!!! We purchased a front loader Frigidaire Affinity washing machine about 5 years ago and it has to be the worst ever. From the very beginning it has been nothing but a disaster! The front door does not seal properly so it constantly leaks. We had a repairman come out and fix it twice and it continues to do the same thing. Next we had an issue with the tub filling up with water and not draining, so my husband decided to clean out the filter and look at the pump, now my husband is pretty handy and holy ** what a mess. It took hours and we literally had to take the whole machine apart!!! This has happened numerous times. This last time we thought it would be the same draining issue, so we took the whole machine apart again and it was not that. Apparently it's the locking device on door, which cost me $655 to fix. I will NEVER purchase another Frigidaire product again!!!
If your Frigidaire Affinity Front Load Washing Machine is stuck on pause, try unplugging the washer for 65 minutes to attempt to reset it.
It that does not solve it, then you may have a faulty board or other issue in your washer (possibly mechanical).
What is the model number?
I'm a 67 year old female and I refused to spend another dime on this machine and I can't afford to buy a new one, so I removed the door, sanded the rust down to bare metal and painted the door. This morning I reattached the door. This product is a piece of crap. I wish I could replace it, but I haven't won the lottery yet and on my fixed income, replacement won't be happening anytime soon. It's a hunk of junk from what I thought was a reputable company. They have no pride in their product and this was not a quality appliance.
Have you checked that the drain pump is operating normally? It may be clogged, jammed or bad. Also look at the drain hose. When you say you were able to get it on the drain cycle, can you explain what you did to get it into the drain cycle? It may give us more clues as to what is going on in the washer at that point.

Frigidaire's stance on it is "mold is not covered by warranty", "not on a recall", "there is nothing they can do about it". So they have a major design problem and they refuse to do anything about it! We've had health issues for several years and now we know why. Your clothes stink, they get discolored and you breathe mold causing health issues. You cannot possibly dry all these areas, every single place that the gasket touches the metal, plus inside all the folds of the gasket. Do NOT consider this product or you will regret it.
