Can't close door - Frigidaire FTF530FS Washer

The lock mechanism won't let me close the door - appears to be in lock mode although machine is off (button pushed in and door lock light not lit). I've had this machine a month. I had this model before and never had this problem. Any ideas of how to correct this?

    I am having the same problem. I've the washing machine for 3 yrs and it is always and issue with the washer or dryer. Once we get both fixed I am thinking about selling them and getting a top load washer. This washing machine and dryer is a piece of junk!

Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer will not advance through cycles... need to manually turn knob. New timer did not do the trick nor control panel...

Hi Jacquie, thank you for your inquiry! First, when you are referring to the control panel are you speaking about the motor control board? The motor control board advances the timer, and the timer will not advance if it does not sense that the door is closed and securely locked. Therefore, I highly recommend reaching out to an expert technician that can accurately diagnose the motor control board and/or door switch on this particular unit. The servicer will ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect.

Frigidaire affinity door will not lock when door is closed or register door is not closed when open

Make sure you are allowing the washer to completely finish its cycle before opening the door. It is normal for the door to lock at the end of a cycle. The locking mechanism keeps owners from opening the door before all of the water has been drained. If the door on the washer is locked, select the "Drain" or "Spin" options on the front-load washer. This will completely drain the water from the system and unlock the door, allowing you to open it.

My ftf530fs has worked every time I've used it, but tonight when I closed the door it would not start. The door lock light is on, but it will not start on any setting. What do I need to do?

My GE front loader did this. I unplugged/plugged it in and it started. Weird, but I hope your solution is that simple. Also, check your breaker.
