Frigidaire F/L Washer - Delay Start will not reset?

Washer 9 months old - has worked perfectly until now - When door closed the "Door Lock" light does not come on - when you press start we get 0' then 48 (Minutes to complete the cycle) I press Cancel and it displays 48, 60, 90, 1hr, 2hr ... the Delay Start button seem like it is stuck ( the the other buttons have a small "click" when pressed) should it release when Delay is canceled?
When we press any of the other buttons like Spin it rotates through the numbers same as when we press cancel
We even left the washer to see if the delay would work but nothing happened - I am at a loss as to why it will not work now

I had this EXACT problem this morning and ended up calling the Sears Home Central Team out (I have an extended maintenance agreement). This is an error code that CAN BE RESET by the end user (you and me!) and doesn't need a repairmain. Here's what you do:

PRESS AND HOLD the START and CANCEL BUTTONS.
The four lights above the START button will begin to flash.
Continuing holding the START and CANCEL button and "spin" your wash selector knob to "SPIN".
Release the START and CANCEL buttons and Press the START button.
This will RESET the error codes within the system and allow you to "cancel out" of the DELAY START.

IF the error codes are "bad ones", then the system will stay locked and you'll need to call a repairman; however, this "fix" should work for MOST of the routine system error codes.

Worked on mine and we're a happy washing family once again!!

Not working


Good Afternoon James,

I see that you are still having trouble with your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000E, finishing and now starting a load, even after replacing the door lock.

I would start by making sure that your washer door is completely closed.

Next I would check to make sure that your washer controls are not locked. You will see a "LOC" code if the controls are locked. To get them out of the lock mode, press and hold the "Options" and "Select" buttons at the same time for 10 seconds.

If you are still having trouble you will want to give your washer a hard reset. You can do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes.

Once power is restored, if you are still having trouble with your appliance either not starting or not completing the cycle, I would recommend contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-
WP

First I made sure the detergent dispenser door was closed. That did not work. Then i made sure that the dispenser was clean, by running water thru it. That did not work,. Then I turned the dial to hand wash and pushed the start button. That worked. Delay light did not turn on. Then i turned the setting to the proper wash cycle and pushed the start button. Clothes are being washed now.

My friidaire washer will not start. The door lock light will not come on. The door closes properly. The error LOC comes on. Not sure what else to do. Doesn't seem to be any problem closing the door. Help...


To avoid having someone accidentally start or stop the
washer, press Options and Select at the same time and
hold for 10 seconds until “LOC” is displayed alternately
with the estimated cycle time. To unlock the controls,
press Options and Select at the same time and hold 10
seconds until ”LOC” is no longer displayed.

I too had the same problem, I closed the soap tray and a magnet popped out and got stuck to the door. Same problem with it acting like it was going to start and then beeped. This is where the magnet goes, just stick it back in, its held in with pressure (barely) :)

I took the whole control panel off to locate the magnetic reed switch, then just reverse engineered where the magnet is supposed to go on the soap drawer.

Solution: Hold down the power and delay start button at the same time. In about 3-4 seconds a beep will occur and the red key lock will turn off. I think it is a problem in the machines firmware. I just guessed at what combination of buttons the engineers used to do a firmware reset. In any case it worked for me.
