    Got it fixed. Took the door lock switch out and glued the pin down so that the machine thinks that the door is always closed. This was better than purchasing a new part. Has solved the problem. This is a good solution if you are getting door lock error messages and the washer wont start.

PAU means the machine is "paused".

SOURCE: Affinity washer displays ERR. PAU and 56

I fixed this myself and it only took about 5 minutes. The problem is the door latch needs to be reset, which requires unplugging it's three electrical connections. This has to be done inside the washer outer seal, but it is easy to get to. First remove the outer ring that holds the seal on. Next remove only the side of the seal closest to the door latch (again only the outer seal needs to be undone). With this done remove the two screws holding the door latch in place (inside). Remove the latch, unplug the three connectors, plug them back in then reassemble everything. When all is back in place hit "cancel" and it should be good to go.

When pressing start on my frigidaire washer LTT2940FE1, It says pause and won't start.


Reset the unit at the household circuit breaker and retry. PAU means the unit is paused either by a blockage and the sensor won't let the unit continue, or it was manually paused by a button press.
