Yes, the original issue was the control from the beginning. the control is damaged and it cannot register the latch at this point. this is necessary and , it will fix the issue.

SOURCE: door locked, won't turn on. won't reset

Remove the bottom panel which would give you access to the pump area if you look up along the side that the door lock is on you will see a cord with a loop on it pull this cord and the door would open. The panel must be removed in order to locate this pull cord. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick
p.s if after you open the door and you were to leave the unit unplugged for 7 minutes if the error did not go away or if the door once again locked up you would have no choice but to replace the door lock assembly on the unit Thanks again Rick

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.

The door won't lock how do I fix it


I appreciate your inquiry, Gordon Smith!

From my understanding the door will not lock on your Frigidaire dryer, ATF6700FS1. You could have a potential problem with either the door latch assembly or door strike. I would open the door to see if you can locate any visible cracks or damages to either component. One or both may need to be replaced and I would recommend reaching out to a professional technician for a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Hello Michael - Thank you for your post! Let's try resetting the washer. This can be done by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit to the off position. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on the unit. Will the door lock? If the issue persists, then more than likely the unit is experiencing a communication issue with the control board and the door latch or the washer has a faulty door latch/lock assembly. In this regard, I would suggest contacting an Authorized Service Technician that will be able to assist you in the diagnosis of your appliance.

Frigidaire CRTR9300ASO won't spin replaced door latch switch and still does not work


Hi bitemejohne - Often when a unit does not spin, it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. Since you have already replaced the door lock assembly then the washer may be experiencing other issues. It could possibly have a faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

My candy GOFS262 washing machine is filling the drum to the top with water on every cycle but doing nothing else after that, the clothes jst sit there in the water, I've left it to see if something...


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission.

Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.
Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Frigidaire washer model ATF6000ES1 door not locking, the door closes, but it's not recognized by control panel.


You are having a problem with the door latch sensor indicating everything is connected correctly. Check to make sure your door is not sagging and then make sure the door latch is not broken or cracked.

What does E40 mean?


Here's the repair manual for your model: manuals...asher_2004.pdf

There is a test chart in the troubleshooting section you can follow. Test#7 on page 62 talks about the door latch/lock, it asks if your door strike is broken, I've seen a few break before myself.

If you replaced the door latch assembly and its still doing it, and the door strike isn't broken then it said your control board is the culprit.

Hope helps.

Door open error shows even when door is securly closed. Is most likely a faulty door latch and lock mechanism, or sensor. Any suggestions to repair without calling in an expensive repair person?


here is a website that has the parts break down. it should be a striker and door switch/lock that are the problem.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5151098&diagram_id=1238997

check to see if the door striker is ok it has two prongs on the door that go into the machine.
when the door is closed the striker goes into the switch.
hope this helps
