    I depressed the OPTION & SELECT BUTTONS SIMULTANEOUSLY AND IT WORKED LIKE A CHARM. THANKS.

    Wow! I was worried that I was going to have to invest some money to get it fixed... After holding the two buttons for about 10 seconds it started right up! Thank you so much for your help.

    Once the repair is made, i.e. door lock replaced, clearing the error code by holding both Option and Select Buttons worked for us.

This worked for me. The LOC indicates that the control panel settings are locked. Press the SELECT and OPTION button simultaneously to toggle this 'feature' on or off. Hope this helps.

Thank you. Holding the buttons for 20 sec cleared the loc error for me. I must have locked the cntrl panel when I ran Diags prior to replacing a burned element. Unfortunately I am back to the original problem, "motor runs no Heat". The element is still good but I am not getting voltage to it. I hav read other post and it appears I may have a faulty K2 Relay on the main processor board.

Dryer will not start. Has LOC error code.


Hello Luz - This is AP and I'm happy to assist you!

It appears your Frigidaire dryer console Control Lock has been activated. Without knowing your specific model number I can suggest to simply press and hold the Options and Select buttons at the same time until LOC is no longer displayed to deactivate the lock. 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 dryer status has changed successfully.

My fridgidaire affinity dryer has loc error and will not let me start it


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.

I am trying to use the dryer and an error code of LOC comes on and it won't run


The control is locked. Press and hold the OPTIONS and SELECT button at the same time for 10 seconds or until "LOC" turns off. To lock the control, press and hold OPTIONS and SELECT until "LOC" is displayed. Unplug the machine for at least 30 minutes if pressing and holding the said buttons does not unlock the control to eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch. The control may need to be replaced if unplugging the dryer still doesn't solve the problem.

I have error code loc the machine won't


The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.
