    Mine is a GLTF2070 series, but I have the same problem. The door simply will not unlock and I can't get it to do anything. It was in storage for 2 years, but I don't think that should affect anything.

A year later! I experienced the same problem this morning - exactly as you, Bessie24, stated. I could hear a faint humming sound and thought the lock mechanism was still trying to complete its locking function. It would know the lock function was completed when the lock trips the wee (micro) switch. I reckoned if the female portion (with switch) were a tiny bit loose, the switch might not trip, so I loosened then tightened the two screws attaching it to the carcass of the washer (as opposed to the door part) while pushing upward on the same part. This fixed my problem and i hope many others find this procedure useful.

Usually, the door lock button should come on when you have the door open. Make sure it's fully shut before you try to start a cycle. Or, if you're talking about cancelling the spin cycle when you have about 2 minutes left, and then not being able to get the door open. You have to wait about 3 minutes. It even says in the manual, it will take about 3 minutes for the door to unlock. Just walk away and come back. Do not yank on the door for 5 minutes, as I used to do.

HOW TO CLEAR THE LOC CODE ON MY FRIGIDAIRE WASHER


This means that the child lock (control lock) feature is active. There will be a button (or pair of buttons) depending on the model that you need to press and hold to toggle off the feature. If it is a single button, there will be a tiny padlock icon on the button. If you need to press and hold two buttons, the padlock symbol will be in a line indicating both buttons.

A likely combination is the Select and Option buttons. These should be held together for 10+ seconds. (This is the combination for some Affinity washers.)

If this doesn't work and you can't see a lock icon, please add a comment with the model number of your washer. I'll be glad to check what the combination is for your washer. The model number is usually on a plaque on the rim of the door for front loading washers or at the back at the top of the drum for a top loading washer.

I hope this helps.

My frigidaire front load washer will not start. anytime I push a button on the front panel the "LOL" sign flashes. on the front of the washer panel d wash rinse final spin control lights are...


Is the message "LOL" or "LOC"? I suspect the child lock "LOC" has been activated. To toggle this off, press and hold Options and Select for 10+ seconds. This feature prevents someone from accidently starting or changing a cycle selection.

There is a small padlock icon in the middle of lines linking the two buttons that let you toggle the child lock on and off.

There are two Frigidaire washers with the model ATF6000ES (the S is followed by a 0 or a 1). The manuals for both are available here: http://www.frigidaire.com/manuals?model=ATF6000ES . The child lock feature is described in the Operating Instructions. For the ATF6000ES0, the direct link to the appropriate manual is http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Webster/134604400.pdf . See page 2 under Washer Features.

I hope this helps.

Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't start


Try holding the 'options' & 'select' buttons together till the door lock button comes on. This is the child lock function. You can do it again for the lock to come off. Hold down for over 3 seconds

Please reply or rate.

My Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't start: the "door locked" button doesn't come on though the door is closed properly


If the washer fills with water, but will not start the wash cycle or spin, it is 1 of to things. the most common for frigidaire front load affinitys is the door lock assembly. I have had to replace numerous of these. if the door lock indicator is not on when it tries to wash, you need to replace the door lock assembly. if the door lock indicator is on, but wont wash, it is likly that you have a bad motor control board.
