I have a Frigidaire front load washer #ATF6000SF1 and need to reset the PAU and E41 error code. I cannot get the unit into diagnostic mode to accomplish this. How can I reset this code?


I appreciate your post, Josh Orenstein!
From my understanding your Frigidaire washer is displaying "PAU" and "E41". "PAU" normally displays when there is an interruption to the cycle and "E41" means the main control board thinks the door switch is open. Either code can display due to a faulty door latch assembly, door strike, or main control board. You can attempt to perform a factory reset by holding down the Start/Pause button and Select button until a signal sounds. Also review the door latch and strike to see if there is any visible damage that could cause a short within the components. If there is no visible damage you may want to consult with a technician for proper diagnosis and repair of your washer. Hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

E41 error. Does anyone know that this error is EXACTLY ??? Thank you.


Hello Greg_Meredit, this is JK. I see that you are getting an E41 error message on your washer. The E41 error is where the main control board thinks that the door switch is open. You would need to check the door to make sure that it is closing securely. If the door is closing but the problem still occurs there could be a problem with the door switch assembly or the main control board. Hope this helps!

My Frigidaire Affinity washer stopped working in middle of cycle and shows E41 code.


Hello Shawn Smith - Typically error code E41 indicates that washer has detected that the main control board thinks the door switch is open. Try reprogramming the washer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately and properly assist with the repairs.

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.

E41 - Control board thinks the door switch is open.

PAU means PAUSE in the cycle; if you are try all methods, I assume that the control panel needs to be replaced.

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").

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

E41 error indicates that the problem is with door lock assembly, it is displayed when the control board thinks that the door switch is open. To solve this problem you have to remove the door lock assembly and measure the resistance of the PTC. If it reads open then the door lock assembly needs replacement however, if the reading is around 1500 ohms then replacing the control board is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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...safety 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.

Macmarkus :)
