Error code: E14 Reed Switch

Moved my washer to my new laundry room. It worked before the move, but now it isn't. The display box read ddo. I did some research and found out how to get the error code, which is E14. I don't know what a reed switch is and I don't know how easy or difficult it is to replace. I'm pretty handy with tools and my husband recently had a stroke and can't help me. Can you explain it to me? Thanks!

DDO have the problem that is the part that I have to change


Thank you for your inquiry, edwin chiu!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is displaying the error code "DDO". "DDO" stands for dispenser door open which could be a problem within your door or reed switch. I would recommend opening and closing you do to secure the connection is proper.
If that does not correct the issue I would perform a reset on your washer which you can do by disconnecting the power from it by either unplugging the power cord or flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes. Hopefully this information has been helpful. -Matt

Hello gracehamada - Typically DDO indicates that the washer has detected a problem with the dispenser drawer. Either the drawer is open and will not close properly or a professional needs to check the reed switch. Try resetting the washer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately twenty minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Front load washer door will not lock


Hello Phyllis Emmett - Do you notice any error codes displayed on the control panel or lights blinking? If so and the panel displays "DR", the door may have a defective door lock switch. However, if panel displays "DDO" either the drawer is not closing, magnet may be missing or have a defective reed switch, which you will need to contact a professional to diagnose the unit.

Washer is reading ddo. what does that mean?


Hi
Error DDO means dispenser drawer open. This error appears when the washer senses that the dispenser door is not closed. If the dispenser door seems to be closed then it seems to be an issue with the magnet. There is a little magnet attached to the right hand side of the detergent drawer which activates a reed switch & signals the washer that the drawer is closed. This magnet might have moved from its place and that's why you are getting error DDO. Pull the drawer out and check the handle part for a magnet. When the drawer is closed the magnet activates a switch in the console that tells the control the detergent drawer is closed. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I have an AWG 345/4 whitch displays fault code E14 can anyone help Thanks


To prevent the washer from operating while the detergent drawer is open your machine has what is called a "reed switch". The reed switch is controlled by this magnet, so that when the drawer is closed the magnet causes the reed switch to close and this tells the control board to go ahead and run the machine.

Your error message is telling you the reed switch it not working, so they want you to check the magnet to make sure it is still in place and is working.

Ddo problem


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error DDo means dispenser drawer open. There is a little magnet attached to the right hand side of the detergent drawer which activates a reed switch to "tell" the machine that the drawer is closed. That magnet might have moved from it's place and that's why you are getting error ddo. magnet is part key number 51. Pull the drawer out and check on the handle part for a magnet. When the drawer is closed the magnet activates a switch in the console that tells the control the detergent drawer is closed. Please check this link for details(part #51)--
