    Yes the door strike is fine. I had already changed the control and was contesting frigidaire's one point troubleshooting chart test six for this machine. The question was about the possibility of the door lock asm being bad eventhough their troubleshooting clearly indicates the control.

    I've replaced the door switch/ lock unit and the catch. The washer now has an E56 error code. the motor spins freely and I checked the Olms and only had a reading on the 1 to 2 pins. The manual says to replace the motor, but doesn't seem right? Prior to replacing the door lock assembly I had an E41 and after that an E46 but that code no longer comes up

Front load frigidaire gallery series gltf2940fe1 error code e41. Everything light up but door will not lock to start cycle.

The E41 error means exactly what you experienced. The door isn't locking (or the computer doesn't get the door locked message). Since the door was closed, you either have a problem with the control board or the door strike plate and door lock switch. Take off the J2 plug from the control board and check for continuity between the black wire and ground. If you see 120V, then replace the console control board. If the circuit gives an open, then check the strike plate. If that's bad, replace it. Otherwise replace the switch. has some of the parts. The door latch is part 8 on the cabinet diagram.

Occasionally, the error is triggered by water in the drain motor You should also check the drain motor/pump for any blockages. Note: if there is water in this area, you'll need some towels to control the water.

I hope this helps.

E41 Control board thinks the door switch is open.

In the J2 plug on the control, measure voltage from the black wire to ground with power on.

0 volts. Check the door strike. If good, replace the door switch assembly.

120 volts. Replace the control board.

Frigiaire frontloader washer will not operator error code " LOC "

To recall an error code,

Wake the machine by pressing any button

Wait 5 seconds
Press and hold the Start and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously

Ail LEDs will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LEDs. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons are pressed.
A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.

As long as the buttons are held, the failure code will appear in the display as an E followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters, please post back with the error code for further assistance.

Frigidaire Affinity washer (LAFW3511KW0) with an E41 error. I have unplugged to reset (no change), checked the stricker (fine), removed outer seal and disconnected and reattached (I also received an E41...

Install the door lock/switch assembly with the door switch harness disconnected but "jumped". Jump a wire between the wire harness terminals and if the error code (E41) stops appearing when the machine is started, the door lock/switch assembly is indeed faulty and needs to be replaced.


Check the continuity of the door switch harness connecting the switch and terminal J2 of of the control board if the error code (E41) still appears every time the machine is started after putting a jumper wire between the door switch harness terminals.


Make sure the connectors are clean and snugly connected to both. Replace the wire harness if you are skeptical about its condition. Disconnecting the door switch wire harness (J2) from the control board and putting a jumper wire between the leads of terminal J2 on the control board will directly confirm the condition of the wire harness and the board itself. The wire harness is the problem and must be replaced if the error code E41 stops appearing. On the other hand, consider replacing the control board if the error code still flashes even when the leads of terminal J2 on the board is shorted ("jumped").

I have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee limated,the blower motor resistor wireing shorted out at the plug connection the control circuit to the resistor,I need to know the color code for the j1,j2,j3 termals on...

I've seen a few of these and the easiest fix is to replace both the blower motor speed controller/resistor and the wiring harness connector. I've tried fixing the connector but the repairs don't last because of the heat generated at the connector if everything isn't just right. You can purchase the connector, which comes with color coded pigtail wires attached, from the dealer and it's a fairly easy and permanent fix. Hope this helps and good luck!

PAU error code comes on when iI test it it shows e41 door lock

Hello, welcome to FixYa

Based on the info you provided, specifically the E41 error, It sounds like the unit is detecting an unlocked door, loose wire, or the control itself is bad. (E41= Shorted or open. Defective door lock assembly.Around 1500Ohms. Defective control board.)

The PAU simply indicates the control thinks it has been paused...that may be just a side affect of the door lock assembly.

Here's how to check...

**Unplug the unit from the wall first**

Remove the door lock assembly and measure the resistance of the PTC. Should get a reading of around 1500ohms.

Attached here is a great tutorial for accessing the assembly for testing and replacing.

Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if anything is not clear.

Thank's again for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

My machine wach but do not spin a the end.

Note: This solution is intended only for asker qualityisc as per Live Chat session discussion. Error code reads E47 which means the Control board thinks the PTC circuit (wax motor) is open.

Unplug the machine then remove the spring-loaded wire loop that holds in place the front of the bellows over the lip of the door opening in the front panel.

Using needle nose pliers, start where the spring and wire are connected at the bottom of the bellows and pull the wire out of the groove of the bellows then pull the bellows off of the lip of the front panel.

Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.

Take the door lock and switch assembly out of the machine and disconnect the electrical connections.


Measure the resistance of the wax motor. The normal resistance is around 1500 ohms. Shorted or open circuit wax motor means the door lock and switch assembly needs to be replaced.

replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) if the wax motor reads shorted or open to address the issue. But if the wax motor resistance is normal, check the continuity of the door lock and switch assembly wire harness, particularly the wax motor wire harness. Start with the continuity of the red/black wire of the wax motor harness to each of the red/black wires of the door lock and switch assembly harness. They should all have continuity; otherwise, replace the harness.

Remove the top panel to access the control board if further continuity test is necessary or if the red/black wire of the wax motor harness has continuity with the all other red/black wires of the door lock and switch assembly harness.

Remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the cabinet then lift the panel off. The console can be removed from the cabinet to completely access the control board connections, particularly the door lock and switch assembly harness connections. Check the continuity of the red/black wires at the door lock and switch assembly to the red/black wire of the harness connected to connector J2 on the control board.

The problem is in the control board if the wax motor is good and the door lock and switch assembly wire harness has all the necessary continuity. The only viable solution, should that be the case, is the replacement of the control board.

Kenmore washing machine Model 970C45072-30 spin cycle does not work. what could the problem be.

I had a problem where the water would fill and do everything except when it came to spin it would not work. I took the back cover off and checked gave some wires a shake and found that a spark came from the motor control board. Took the board out and inspected and found that a solder joint on a thick metal jumper was broken (eroded). Reflowed the solder joint with a soldering iron and added some more solder for added strength. Plugged the board back in and I was up and running. Always do a visual check before doing any repairs, it may save you a lot of money with a quick fix like this. This may look complicated for some but it's worth trying. A repair tech told me either its the motor control board($150) or the motor($300). I would have spent over $500 plus his labor....5ccef753-244a-4024-8152-27b78ddbb7b9.jpg

Err22 showing.How can I start?My machine is Precor 956 model.

The speed sensor is a hall effect sensor that emits a pulse when a flywheel lobe passes between
its transmitter and receiver. The speed control circuit processes the pulse train emitted by the
speed sensor. The speed sensor signal is a real time representation of the operating speed of
the treadmill. The speed control circuit compares the real time speed (speed sensor output) with
the speed that it expects the treadmill to be operating at and acts accordingly to control treadmill
speed or initiate an error code sequence, if necessary. Typically, if a problem exists with the
speed sensor the drive motor will operate (perhaps only briefly) before a speed related error
occurs (errors 20-26).
1. Set the treadmill circuit breaker in the “on” position. Using a DC voltmeter, measure
the voltage between terminal 3 of J2 (green wire) and terminal 4 of J2 (black wire) on
the lower PCA. Slowly, rotate the drive motor flywheel. The voltage should read
approximately 5 Vdc when a flywheel lobe is between the speed sensor “legs” and
approximately 0.25 Vdc when a flywheel lobe is not between the speed sensor “legs”

2. If the voltages in step 1 are correct, go to step 5. If the voltage in step 1 is 0 Vdc or
significantly low when a flywheel lobe is between the speed sensor “legs, continue with step
3. Measure the voltage between terminal 1 of J2 (red wire) and terminal 4 of J2 (black wire) on
the lower PCA. The voltage should read approximately 5 Vdc.
Sensor C954, C956 Treadmill
Page 1-24 Page 24
4. If the voltage is missing or significantly low, disconnect the speed sensor plug from the lower
PCA. Measure the voltage between pins 1 & 4 of the J2 plug on the lower PCA. If the
voltage is approximately 5 Vdc, replace the speed sensor. If the voltage is missing or
significantly low, replace the lower PCA.
5. At this point the speed sensor output is good, but a speed error occurs. There are two
potential causes for this condition. They are upper PCA or lower PCA. There are no good
means of troubleshooting these components other than substituting known good
components. Replace only one component at a time. If the component that you replaced
does not correct the problem, replace the original component. Try substituting the lower
PCA first then the upper PCA, if necessary.
