Ok, I got mine to work. Push the button down on the back side of the soap dispenser that says push down or push here (to take the tray out). When you have it out you will want to turn it over and there are 3 or 4 white tabs. You will want to pop the front part of the drawer off and then on the bottom about an inch in/down there is a small slot to put it into. It is the same size as the magnet and the magnet goes with the squares on the top and bottom. You cannot actually see the magnet when the drawer is put back together. When I talked to the service man he said they did away with the magnet on the new model. How stupid to put it there to begin with!! Hope that helps and if it doesn't ask again.

I found it on the right side of the drawer. pull it out and look for a space that is big enough for the magnet to fit length wise

You can also cut the sensor off inside the control panel and short the wires together. The replacement control boards have it shorted and ask you to discard the old sensor

The dispenser drawer has a magnet in it that has to line up with a sensor. if you can put the drawer back in that will solve the problem. if the magnet isn't lost.

MACHINE FLASHING DDO CODE


Hi Friend, this is Z. Thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Generally, error code DDO means that the dispenser drawer on your unit may be open. If so, close the drawer and the error code should resolve itself.

If you've double-checked the drawer and it is closed, remove the drawer and examine the magnet. If the magnet is missing or defective, the magnet probably needs replacing.

If the magnet is fine and in place, an experienced technician may need to examine the reed switch or main control board.

Since there are cost differences in parts and accessories, it is always a good idea to have a service tech properly diagnose your appliance.

Error code DDo ON A FRIDGEDAIRE FRONT LOAD WASHER


Hello geraldinerid - Typically DDO indicates that the washer has detected a problem with the dispenser drawer. Either the drawer is open and will not close properly or a further diagnosis is recommended to have a professional check the reed switch.

This washer has an error code of DDO, Dispenser door open, would you think a sensor issue or something more?


Hi,


The meaning for ddo error means"Dispenser Drawer Open" .To rectify this problem you should try opening and closing the door shut. There will be a magnet which shows that the door is closed or open.The magnet is underneath the dispenser door, you have to remove the dispenser from the washer, then take apart the dispenser itself to view the magnet. If the magnet is missing you have to replace it.
Thank you !!

Ddo error code on frigidaire front washer


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error DDo means dispenser drawer open. There is a little magnet attached to the right hand side of the detergent drawer which activates a reed switch to "tell" the machine that the drawer is closed. That magnet might have moved from it's place and that's why you are getting error ddo. magnet is part key number 51. Pull the drawer out and check on the handle part for a magnet. When the drawer is closed the magnet activates a switch in the console that tells the control the detergent drawer is closed. Please check this link for details(part #51)--
