Frigidaire front load tumble action washer won't run
Error code LOC model number LTF2940E50 serial number XC50713540 I have unplugged it, pressed start & cancel simultaneously seems the control board is locked because you can't change any of the settings through the buttons. Can only turn the knob to change the type of wash.

To avoid having someone accidentally start or stop the washer, press OPTIONS and Select at the same time and hold for about 10 seconds until the Control Lock) lights up. "LOC" will be displayed alternately with the estimated cycle time. Turning the Cycle Selector knob or pressing any button will produce flashing indicator lights and/or beeping. To unlock the controls, press and hold OPTIONS and Select for about 10 seconds.Frigidaire GLTF2940ES3 Quick Start Manual Page 3

To clear latest stored error code:

• Press and hold the Options and Pause Cancel buttons for 3 seconds. The code will be cleared.

I understand your washer is not working and flashing LOC; however, I see that your question is listed under Frigidaire FEX831CS (Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer). This specific laundry center does not have a digital display. May I please have your model number? You can typically locate the serial tag, on the upper front as you open the door.
In the meantime, if you have a front load washer, I suggest pressing OPTIONS and SELECT at the same time and hold for approximately 15 seconds until "LOC" is no longer displayed. I hope this helps!
Thank you - Z.
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.

Just had same problem. After removing boot/rubber gasket around opening, and replacing door lock assembly it still would not work giving the same ERR LOC message! Another site directed me to press the "Options" and "Select" buttons at the same time. BINGO! My husband was quite proud of me!
