Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000ES Front Load Washer

Open Question

Fridgidaire Affinity ATF6700FS1 with door lock error, door lock light is on, and loud buzzing noise.

When started, door lock light comes on and hear door lock engage but instead of starting washing cycle the washer begins buzzing like it can't start. Ran the diagnostic test and receive the E41 error for the door lock. Is there any way to know if it's for sure the switch assembly or the control panel...or do I have to replace the switch assembly to find out it's actually the control panel?

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

E41 error indicates that the problem is with door lock assembly, it is displayed when the control board thinks that the door switch is open. To solve this problem you have to remove the door lock assembly and measure the resistance of the PTC. If it reads open then the door lock assembly needs replacement however, if the reading is around 1500 ohms then replacing the control board is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Install the door lock/switch assembly with the door switch harness disconnected but "jumped". Jump a wire between the wire harness terminals and if the error code (E41) stops appearing when the machine is started, the door lock/switch assembly is indeed faulty and needs to be replaced.

Check the continuity of the door switch harness connecting the switch and terminal J2 of of the control board if the error code (E41) still appears every time the machine is started after putting a jumper wire between the door switch harness terminals.

Make sure the connectors are clean and snugly connected to both. Replace the wire harness if you are skeptical about its condition. Disconnecting the door switch wire harness (J2) from the control board and putting a jumper wire between the leads of terminal J2 on the control board will directly confirm the condition of the wire harness and the board itself. The wire harness is the problem and must be replaced if the error code E41 stops appearing. On the other hand, consider replacing the control board if the error code still flashes even when the leads of terminal J2 on the board is shorted ("jumped").

My washer makes a loud buzzing noise model Fridgidaire GLTF2940FE


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# GLTF2940FE, will lock the door, start buzzing, and not start the cycle. I suggest resetting your appliance, be either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Makes a loud buzzing noise when attempting to start cycle


The lock solenoid on the door latch assembly may be hanging up or just noisey. If washer starts and runs then all is ok. If washer wont start, just buzzes, then door latch assembly may have to be changed.
