Dear publican,
Welcome to fixya.com
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


You said, I HAVE FRONT LOADING 800F1 THE FRONT DOOR WON'T SHUT AND LOCK. ANY SUGGESTIONS BRUCE

If the washer will not turn on due to the open and unlocked door!
Then the door mechanism and door switch that that activates the washer to start have failed.
You can do it your self if you know how or call service and they will get you on your way to clean laundry!
Cheers , Bless You Huuum

GLTF1240ASO Front Door Won't Lock/Close


Most probably your door lock is damaged. You are not supposed to force it open, you have to wait for at least 2 minutes (or till the lock sign is off) after the wash is over to open the door, never force it.
You can just google your model number and search for parts to obtain it. It is quite possible you can change it yourself. See that the line is disconnected from the mains.

Washer won't start


Sounds like the door lock may be faulty or it isn't closed fully. If it has a child lock check you haven't set it by mistake, you have to hold the start for 5 secs+ to override it.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

Kenmore front load washer door won't latch lock light on


On some Kenmore front load models, if the black gasket around the door opening is unseated (for example, because you drag some heavy wet laundry over it) the door will not engage the lock and stay closed. This is a feature to prevent the washer from leaking when the gasket is not sealed. To fix it, simply reseat the gasket and the door will close and lock.

My affinity front load washing machine stopped mid-cycle. The door won't lock so it won't run and it has water sitting in it. Is there anything we can try before calling a repair man?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Sorry but both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Door remains locked


Welcome to fixya



I have a solution for this

By removing power completely from this unit, you will be able to reset the lock device. If it still fails, then you will need to check the door once its open for debri in the locking mechanizism.
