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").

SOURCE: Won't drain. Blinking pause. Won't

Hi.

You need to check the drain filter, which is directly connected to the pump. That is the place where you usually find blockage. The filter or coin trap is located inside the drum. See the schematic below:

If that is not enough, then the drain pump access is located in the front side of the machine, hidden behind the trim at the base. The kick panel is held to the washer's frame by screws:

After removing the panel you will Be able to access the pump. Have a container ready to collect water that will come out through the hose.

DISCONNECT POWER before starting the job.

Here parts diagrams:

If you need parts see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Error message e41


Hello Friend, thank you for your inquiry!

If you are receiving an error code E41 on your Frigidaire front load washer, your loading door may be ajar. Double-check to ensure that it is closed. If it is secure, reset the power to your appliance for about 30 seconds. You can do this by unplugging your washer or flipping your circuit breaker into the off position. If the error persists, it could either be the door switch assembly or your washer's main control board. In that case, a certified technician would generally replace the faulty part after proper diagnosis.

Hope this helps! - Z

Fiirst started with a buzzing noise, then next load wouldn't spin proper, then not at all, unplugged washer to reset, tried a small load and it won't run water now,after running 10 to 15 minut


Take the power plug off the wall. Be prepared for a lot of water before attempting the following. It doesn't spin because the unit is not draining water. It will not spin with water in it - must drain first. Check drain hose for kink,check exit pipe for blockage. Remove the front access panel, bottom front; if you find a pipe there with a cap -this is for draining water. Could be your "coin trap assembly" is blocked, therefore not allowing all the water to pump out. Remove the clamp that connects the trap assembly to the pump and clean it out.
If helped, pl say so.

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.

Hi Mr. Barry Coates, I have frigidaire ATF 6700FS front load washer. I am having problem with error code E41 and all time it shows me PAU. I tried all the solution on this site but nothing works. Could...


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.

Check in this link your Control Board Replacement

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.
