Pulled out detergent compartment and magnet fell out. where does it go machine wont run.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The dispenser drawer on many Electrolux/Frigidaire built machines do require a magnet on the right hand side of it to activate the reed switch inside the console located there. It should fit in the bottom of the drawer, if you flip it upside down you should see it's intended location.


Let me know how you make out and I'll help further in any manner I can. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Washer is reading ddo. what does that mean?


Hi
Error DDO means dispenser drawer open. This error appears when the washer senses that the dispenser door is not closed. If the dispenser door seems to be closed then it seems to be an issue with the magnet. There is a little magnet attached to the right hand side of the detergent drawer which activates a reed switch & signals the washer that the drawer is closed. This magnet might have moved from its place and that's why you are getting error DDO. Pull the drawer out and check 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. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Our magnet fell out, where does it go


If you are talking about a small, rectangular magnet, about a 1/16" think or so, it goes in the detergent dispenser drawer. Looking at the front of the drawer, right side, a little behind the front. This magnet triggers a ( or should if its not falied) a magnetic reed switch which allows the washer to operate only if the drawer is closed.

If you take the drawer out, and remove the front, you will see where it goes.

Ddo problem


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)--

The washer won't fill because the magnet fell out from the detergent drawer after being removed for cleaning. Where does the magnet go?


On the right side - halfway down the try - you'll see the witness marks.

Fridgidare Model #LTF2940ESO won't start Error Message DDO


The code means the detergent door is open. There is a magnet placed inside the detergent door cover housing that has probably fallen out. This magnet completes a circuit when the door is closed. It usually happens when cleaning the compartment and can usually be found stuck somewhere on the washer metal body itself or somewhere on the path you took while taking it to wash it out. Take the detergent tray out and dissamble it by pushing open the plastic tabs that hold it together. Look for the small 1"long magnet. If there isn't one. take your tray assembly to a repair dealer and have them put a new one back in. It is just a few dollars and your problem will be solved.

The magnet goes on the front piece of the detergent tray. You must be getting a "DDO" (Detergent Drawer Open) error message. When you removed the detergent tray for cleaning, you probably also removed the white plastic (front) portion of the drawer from the darker plastic reservoir portion. That's when the magnet fell out. That magnet has to be in place for the washer to function properly.

It goes into the white plastic portion of the detergent tray. It is placed in the vertical position just inside the vertical wall of the front portion of the drawer on the right side (of the detergent tray) as you are looking at the washing machine. You really have to look for its' location, but with some effort you will see a vertical slot with "plastic retaining clips" which hold the magnet in place.

Hope you are successful but if not, post another problem citing details about what you have tried. I tried to post this message to you twice already, but the web site will not accept it for some reason. Perhaps they want you to purchase their "professional" (spelled expensive) service to resolve problems. We'll see.

Frigidaire + ddo error code


Excellent solution. I had a similar problem. The trick is to figure out where to put the magnet. I had a hard time with that.

For those like me who might have difficulty finding the spot for the magnet, it goes on the right hand side of the detergent door. The easiest way to do it is to pull the detergent door all the way out of the machine and look at it such that the back of the door is facing you. The magnet fits vertically in a slot on the left side as you are looking at the door (right side of the doorwhen inserted in the machine) in the white plastic. It sits vertically and is held by a small latch. This is not obvious at all...

Magnet


if it's a small rectangular magnet that appears, in our case, fell out, when you add detergent, softener, etc...the magnet goes on the right hand bottom corner of the drawer face, straight up and down, not sideways. this is evidently some type of sensor allowing the washer to start. we had an error code of "ddo" when the magnet fell out.
