Question:

My washer blinks loc 3 times. It will not start. The lock on the door is not broken. What do you think is wrong with it. Do you think replacing the locking switch will fix it. Also my washer is at least 11 years old i hate to spend a lot of money trying to fix it if it's not going to last very much longer.

Briana for model number GLTF2940ES1
Answer:

Hi Briana, Thank you for your inquiry. Actually, the LOC is not an error code, so nothing is broken on your appliance. LOC is for the child safety lock mode. All you need to do to unlock your control panel is press and hold both the 'Select' and 'Options' buttons for 10 seconds. That should unlock your control panel and you then should be able to resume normal use of your appliance. If that does not work, try unplugging your appliance for about 5 or 10 minutes and then plug it back in. Sometimes this can reset the board. If neither of these things work, it is your Electronic Control Board that you would have to replace. I hope this helps!

Question:

hello, again - replacing the door switch made no difference, i do not see a water inlet valve other than the one on the wall that the hoses come from? i removed both hoses and checked the inlet for debris on the washer but still no change. the door click energizes and the unit will hum but nothing seems to open the water solenoids? thank you again for your help.

Jim for model number FTF2140FS1
Answer:

Hi Jim, Thank you for your question. I would suggest testing the three solenoids on your water inlet valve with a multimeter. Each solenoid should be testing anywhere between 500 and 1500 ohms of resistance. If they do not, then your valve is bad and will need to be replaced. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I can't get the gasket to pull out to put lock assembly

Sandy for model number ATF7000FSO
Answer:

Hello Sandy, thank you for contacting us. We have a how to video on our site that shows you have to access that part and install it. You can click the link below, hope this helps! http://www.partselect.com/PS2367737-Frigidaire-131763202-Door-Lock-and-Switch-Assembly.htm#RepairVideo

Question:

Hi, the washer will no longer open the solenoids to fill with water. I removed the door switch and checked the wires and plugged it into the door and the click switch inside of it snaps closed firmly and i can hear the unit begin to hum. There are several clicks in the left rear of the unit that sounds like the solenoids clicking to allow the water in but nothing happens. Does the door switch control more than what i am hearing or is there another part that i should try first? Thank you, jim

James for model number FTF2140FS1
Answer:

Hi James, Thank you for your inquiry. If the door switch is malfunctioning the machine will think that the door is open and so will not fill with water. I would also suggest checking your water inlet valve to see if the part is still working as well. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

What does the error code dr mean?

Marilyn for model number atf6000ES1
Answer:

Hello Marilyn, thank you for contacting us. The DR code means an error has been detected by the control. Most error codes are generated as a result of irregularities in the power supply or usage. Error codes can often be resolved by removing power to the appliance for a minute and then restoring the power. By unplugging the appliance it allows the control to receive a fresh supply of power. This in turn will clear the controls memory of any irregularities it may have received from the power supply. Once refreshed the error should no longer be displayed. Unplug the unit or turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds. Hope this helps!

Question:

Me again..thanks for such quick reply. if i get new screws for door hinge will that help it align better. hinge not bent. but door lifts up a little to fit in safety lock. but bigger question.. mine is a stackable washer and dryer set. can i replace door lock assembly without taking down dryer and taking top off washer. in a very tight space..

Annette for model number FTF530FS0
Answer:

Hi Annette, Thank you for your question .That could work. If it is your screws that got bent then maybe replacing them will fix the level for your door. Unfortunately you would have to remove the dryer to be able to install this new part. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

Door lock sometimes let washer do its job. Sometimes washer will not start unless i adjust door closure. Have to slightly lift door and then shut to lock. So, door lock works but only if i shut it just right. And once, it would not spin all water from clothes...how can i fix or tighten the the door so it is locks easier.or must i get new door lock assembly. but will happen again if door is not tightened...

Annette for model number FTF530FS0
Answer:

Hi Annette,Thank you for the question.First thing to check is the Hinge, PartSelect Number PS898992.Make sure the screws are tight and the hinge is not bent preventing the door to close properly. You can also check the Door Strike,PartSelect Number PS890617. Make sure it is not lose or broken. It needs to go straight into the door lock.If the door and strike are not damaged and the hing is tight and not bent and the strike is going into the switch correctly then I suggest replacing the Door Lock and Switch Assembly. Hope this helps!

I replace the door lock switch assembly, water still does not come on. How many ohms should it read.

Barry for model number FTF2140FE0
Answer:

Hi Barry, Thank you for the question. Very sorry but I do not have the Ohms for the door switch. But if the water is not coming on and filling the appliance I suggest checking the water inlet valve. PartSelect Number: PS2330891. If the valve is defective it will not open and send water into the appliance. Hope this helps!

Question:

Just replaced the motor control board that was fried and the main control board has power and water door does lock but will not do anything.

Sheldon for model number ATF6700FS1
Answer:

Hi Sheldon, Thank you for your inquiry. If your original electronic control board was damaged previously it may have affected the door lock and you will need to replace it. Before replacing i would test it with a multimeter to see if it has continuity. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

jim for model number FTF2140FS1
Answer:

Hi Jim, Thank you for your inquiry. From reviewing the parts under your model number the water inlet valve should be behind the dispenser. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Washer would not spin

Door lock takes a beating due to flimsy washer door which does not align well and subsequently gets slammed each time which causes lock to malfunction telling the washer that it is not locked. Due to safety the washer will not go into the spin mode. Remove top lid (2 screws) open washer door and loosed the 2 screws holding the lock assembly in place. Reach down into the washer and unsnap the 3 wire harnesses. Reverse to reinstall. Very easy.

Washer would not go into final fast spin cycle. Clothes would still be extremly wet. When in drain and spin would drain and then spin slowly around 7 minutes left in cycle would shut off.

Using a screw driver I removed the spring loaded band from around the rubber boot inside the door. You only need to remove the band and then pull the boot from the bottom around to the side. You do not need to fully remove boot. Unscrew locking mechanism. Slide out to be able to see connections. Remove connections. Replace mechanism, reattaching connections into appropriate spots. Replace mechanism and rescrew in. Replace rubber boot by pulling gently out and working rubber V of boot under the metal slot. Once the boot is replaced, replace the metal band making sure the spring is at the bottom of the boot. Wahlah!!! Washer is working perfectly.

Door lock switch faulty preventing washer from spinning

Codes did not point directly to the door lock, so that was a 50/50 between door lock and control board. With top of washer removed door lock is just a couple screws and 3 electrical connections.

Belt was worn and frayed. Belt replacement was tricky because new belt was so tight. Used vice grips to lightly hold belt on pulley while using screwdriver through spokes into tub back to ratchet/control pulley. Not too bad.

Works like new!

Drains but will not final spin

Great advice on your site.
Repairman "found bad motor control board" and gave me an estimate of $316.00 to repair. I figured that the $80 gamble was worth a shot. Took the top screws off, slid the top back and in less than 15 min. I had a fully functioning washer. Thank you.

My washer would not spin. I had been told by the repairman that I needed all new control panels for my machine. The repair was going to be $540.

I read the input of others who had this problem with this washer and how they had replaced the door lock and switch assembly. I figured it was worth the $70-$80 part versus the $540 repair or purchasing a new machine. I was really happy with the machine until this problem occurred.
When I got the new part.....I unplugged the machine. Took out two screws in the back of the top panel. Removed the top of the machine. Took out two screws in the front of the machine that hold the door lock ans switch assembly into place. I unplugged the three wires from the old part (be careful not to drop the old or new part....if you choose to do this by reaching in from the top like I did for this repair.....easier than removing the entire front of the machine.)
I plugged the three wires into the new part and positioned the new part in the door lock position. Replaced the two screws. Put the cover back on the top and replaced the two screws that hold the top cover on the machine.
I was thrilled when it worked perfectly. What a relief!
Sure glad I looked at this website and tried this! The repairman really didn't know enough about my machine....obviously. I'd like to call him and tell what was really wrong so next time he'll know.

Dryer wouldn't go into high spin

this repair was easy, but it was repair #3.
#1: Fix-it guy said the front control board needed replaced. Ordered part from box store. Shoulda come here!
#2: Replaced motor control board. Harder to replace. Shoulda let the new front board run error code first. Again, used brand name supplier. Oops!
#3: Still not spinning. Error code "Door is open" but it's closed.
Remove door lock/switch assy, wires to the front board, and striker. 4 screws, 15 minutes. reached in through the top (did NOT unseat rubber around door).
Plugged wires into door lock. Inserted striker. Using multimeter on "Ohms" tested switch. No continuity=switch not closed.
New switch cost less, arrived faster. thank you Parts Select!

Drained but would not spin

The hardest part was figuring out how to get the lid off. You simply remove two screws from the back of the lid and jerk and slide the lid towards the back of the machine. Take out the screws that hold the front panel on, tilt the front out and access the lock/switch assembly and replace.

Washer will fill and drain but will not spin or agitate

Went by the percentage of people with same problem- door switch was the highest. Ordered door switch and a new belt (belt was getting worn- 6 yrs. old) Door switch did not fix problem. Saw on website that it could be motor control board. Took motor control board out. Nothing visible wrong with anything. Decided not to spend $$ on new board. Figured new washer would be better. Put motor control board back in and tried it......works like new! Must have been a loose wire on the motor control board. Next time I will check wires first. :) Getting motor control board in and out was time consuming but no too hard.

The washer wouldn't spin at all.

I unplugged the washer. Then I unscrewed the two screws on the back, top edge of the washer. and lifted the top off. Next I unscrewed the door lock/switch assembly, reached down in the machine from the top and pulled the switch out. As I unplugged each one of the three plugs from the bad part, I plugged them into the corresponding connections of the good part. Then I screwed the switch back into place, replaced the top of the washer and screwed it back on. I set the washer spin and cheered madly when it went into spin mode. The hardest part was actually turning the screws because I'm a small woman and my hand strength is not what it used to be. But really there was nothing difficult about this repair.

Washer would not spin

Ran diagnostic and discovered that the panel did not recognize that the door was locked, thus no spin. I ordered both parts, although I didn't need the door strike/catch. I only needed the locking mechanism. I removed metal ring from around the rubber piece inside the door with needle nose pliers, and then I simply plugged in the new lock and screwed it in place. I put the ring back around the rubber piece, flipped the circuit back on and washed a load of clothes. Easy as pie! Teachers can do anything. Who needs a repair man? :)
