Hello, I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I have a Frigidaire affinity washer. It started acting up and not draining, and after looking over this forum I took apart the drain assembly that hooks into the pump. There was a lot of gook clogging up the plastic filter in there, I cleaned It up and checked the pump to make sure it was clear also. everything looks clean and open. Water seems to drain fine.

 

However the washer will not spin past a slow speed in the final cycle, or sometimes it does at the very end for 15-20 seconds leaving clothes still very wet. I keep getting an error code 21, saying slow drain. So yeah no clue where to go from here. Any help is appreciated, with 2 kids and a disabled person in the house we have a ton of laundry needing cleaning.

model number ?

It won't Hi-speed Spin untill all the water is Pumped out.

Sounds like a Drain problem or the Pump is getting weak

The pump is failing under load.  The rule with front loaders is:  No pumpy, no spiny.  

 

Here's your pump:  http://www.repaircli...mber=ATF8000FS2

Weird thing now, seems to work just fine as long as I do not use maximum spin. on fast or lower it works just as it should. This still sound like a bad pump?

Check your bearings. We do this before doing any work on all front load machines.
