Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000ES Front Load Washer
Followed frigiaire troubleshooting chat test 6, had 120v at black wire on J2 of control, replaced control same code persists. Could it be the door lock/switch with good voltage?
Check to see if the door stike is not broken on door if good and you have changed door lock asm you have a bad control board

I appreciate your post, Trent!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is displaying an error code of E41 and the door is locked and will not open. An E41 error code means that your main control board thinks the door is open. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by disconnecting power from your washer for at least ten minutes. If that does not help correct your issue it could be a possible problem with your door lock assembly, control panel, or wiring harness. You may need to seek assistance from a professional technician to avoid unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful to you. -Matt

Hello phrainer3 - Error code E41 indicates that the main control board thinks the door switch is open. Contact a professional to check the continuity between the pins in the plug and door strike. The unit either has a defective door switch assembly or main control board.

I used this forum to get ideas on my washer problem.
After reading through several posts I looked for the manual that was indeed taped inside the back panel, on the left side of the washer.
Reading through it I checked the error code and had
E43 at first. This was bad because it meant the control panel needed replacing.
I reset the codes and ran the diagnostic tests and a
new code of E41 appeared. As I suspected the door switch from the start; I took
it apart to find the center contact was not making the connection complete once
the relay locked the door.
With a small file I cleaned up that contact (as well
as the other two near the relay) and bent it slightly upward. This allowed it
to make contact with the upper center contact again.
I believe it gets bent from many door closings and
perhaps slamming it closed.
I only suggest this procedure to experienced persons.
Ensure the power cord is unplugged before any screw
As suggested with the voltage check there was not
120v at the black wire on J2.
This is why I dissected the door switch.
Or if you prefer you can order a new one for $65-
Hope this helps.
