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

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.

Welcome to FixYa
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.
