Our dryer says it locked how do I get that off

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity dryer, model# ATF7000ES, states that it locked and you want to know how to get it off. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power 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-

My dryer says (loc) and will not start

  • Hold the "Control Lock" button, located in the bottom corner of the controls, for five seconds.

  • Release the button when the small LED beside the button lights up. Hold "Control Lock" for a further five seconds to cancel.

    Frigidaire affinity dryer loc

    LOC is a generic lock code meaning the door was either locked manually or accidentally. Also LOC will lock the control panel and can be manually locked as well. Try to reset the unit for about 10-15 minutes and retry.

    It means the control is locked to avoid having someone accidentally start or stop the dryer. Press and hold the Options and Select buttons for 10 seconds or until the “LOC” on the display is cleared. Locking the control is done the same way it is unlocked.

    Dryer shuts off, no heat, AD code

    During normal operation, the display may show: “ad” - dryer is in an auto dry cycle. “dn” - cycle is done in auto dry. “PF” - a power failure to the board has occurred. “Err” - an error has been detected. “LOC” - control lock is activated. “PAU” - cycle has been interrupted.
