Frigidaire Front Loading Washer, ATF6000ES stuck on pause mode - HELP!

My washing machine is stuck on pause mode. When I push any button or turn the wash cycle knob I get beeps and an error message that flashes PAU & ERR. I have tried all the solutions listed on this site. I have also tried every conceivable combination of buttons to unlock the control panel, unplugged the machine overnight and checked the connections on the door to make sure they are catching properly - all to no avail. Please help!

    Catriver,

    Thank you for the help. I unplugged the washer for 30 seconds, plugged it back in, held down the Start/Pause and Cancel buttons together and the same error message comes up (Err). The machine is blinking 57 and PAU when no buttons are held down. I think 57 is the last wash setting we used and I'm assuming PAU means Pause.

    Any ideas?

  • Andrew Erbelding Feb 16, 2007

    catriver - thank you for your help - luckily the washer is still under warranty and electrolux sent out a repair tech who determined the control panel had broken. This is covered under the warranty, so they are replacing it. Thank you for your assistance is attempting to help me!

    My retared inlaws were visiting and would over load the machine and it would rattle out of balance. Once one of the support feet got loose and had to reconnect it because the plastic screw got loose. one year later it started pausing thanks to them inlaws visiting. it seems the after praying lubricant Silicon between the pulley wheel and the drum it started spinning faster. it seems as if it might have to do with too much friction at that location. I get no error code except the pause. I cleaned and reset the door switch and still keeps pausing.

I fixed this myself and it only took about 5 minutes. The problem is the door latch needs to be reset, which requires unplugging it's three electrical connections. This has to be done inside the washer outer seal, but it is easy to get to. First remove the outer ring that holds the seal on. Next remove only the side of the seal closest to the door latch (again only the outer seal needs to be undone). With this done remove the two screws holding the door latch in place (inside). Remove the latch, unplug the three connectors, plug them back in then reassemble everything. When all is back in place hit "cancel" and it should be good to go.

    Sir,
    I do not know you but would like to extend a great big hand shake your way. Your advice on resetting the door latch was spot on!!!!! I just had called Frigidaire and they were very little help, they advised me to use the option / select reset soloution. Of course the option from Frigidaire did not work. Once I used your solution the washer worked fine. Thanks for saving me 200.00 in repairs. If ever we meet the first beer is on me.

    Mr. PJ Fixit. Thank you very much. Your solution saved us time and money. The error in my washer was "err pau 18h". Just a recommendation for others trying...make sure your washer is plugged and error displayed while doing the procedure so the reset can take place.

    I wish I would have seen this prior to buying a motor control board and the latch assembly. I knew it was wasn't a normal code because it didn't have an E with the number 57. Funny thing is my buddy is a repairman and told me that 57 was the error code. He must have failed the Frigidaire repair coarse. Now I have some extra parts that hopefully I won't need anytime soon.

Aerb, unplug the washer for 30 seconds and plug it back in. With in five seconds press and hold the start/pause and cancel buttons together. As long as these buttons are held in you should get the error code. The code should appear as an E followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters. We need to find out what the actual error is. If this works, post back with the code. Catriver.

    aerb, If the error code is a 57, that could be a problem with the motor control board or motor itself. E57 means a high current on the inverter. Here is what you have to check. Remove the belt from the motor and spin the motor pulley. If it does not spin, the motor is the problem. Spin the tub pulley, does it spin free? If not it may be the tub bearings. Remove the harness from the motor and measure the resistance between pins 1&2 1&3 and 2&3. All the readings should be between 4 to 6 ohms.If the readings are good, replace the speed control board. If the readings are incorrect replace the motor. Parts can get expensive so the tests must be made. This is for an e57 code. Catriver...post back.

  • Buddy Lewis Jan 14, 2013

    that doesn't work for me. No error code, just stuck on Err and PAU

  • Phil Grubb Apr 21, 2013

    When I did that it gave me "E41". This is the second time it has done this. The first time it just started working on its own. Very aggravating. Any suggestions? Sounds like you really know what you are talking about. Thanks

Mr PJ Fix IT- I just had to thank you SOOO much for all of your help. We have had this washer for about 4yrs now, it's a piece of junk. I'd have paid for it three times over if I had to call a repair man everytime something went wrong. I swear I get the E20 every six weeks. Tonight it locked up in pause, and you helped us fix it!!! Thanks soooo much for your help!!! You are a life saver!!!!

Posted on Jun 18, 2010

We have a frigidaire washer ATF6000ESO. Our machine was flashing ERR then PAU then 33 and wouldn't do anything else. A service call determined that is was saying that it was in the pause mode and had 33 minutes left on a "quick cycle"and he determined that the door latch/switch was faulty and that caused the machine to think the door was open. Needless to say a new latch/switch fixed it!

Pause error unit will not wash


Hello cvaughn37_cv - It means that the washer has been paused; the cycle has been interrupted. Either the "Pause/Cancel" button or "Start/Pause" button has been pressed. To resume wash - press "Pause/Cancel" or "Start/Pause" once. If this does not prove to be successful please turn the breaker to the unit off for 5 minutes. Then turn the breaker back on to the unit, and retry the cycle setting again.

you should check button start / pause the washing machine, if it is damaged you must replace it with a new one, the damage caused by the push button which is not connected properly.
