Frigidaire Affinity Front Load Washer

I have a Frigidaire Affinity Front Load Washer and I am having a problem with it. It shows as error code of E41. It does not appear to be draining all the water and is making a really loud noise when attempting to spin. I have a feeling my pump may be clogged or possibly even bad, but I cannot get the front panel off to take out the pump. I have taken the 4 screws out of the bottom of the front panel and even taken the ones out of the top, where you add detergent and softner, but I stil cannot get it off. Any suggestions on removing the panel without damaging anythign else and without breaking or damaging the seal for the washtub? Am I even on the right track with the pump? I have already checked the drain hose and the house drain, neither of which are blocked.

Instead of replacing the door switch assembly, you may want to try this because it worked for me:
1. unplug
2. remove the door switch assembly
3. carefully take the cover off this (there are 3 plastic tabs to open it)
4. refer to this diagram http://www.applianceaid.com/ads/doorsw417.jpg and bend the contact towards the contact on the coil (away from you in this picture) with some needle nose pliers. Watch the white contact switch as it tends to pop out. before you re-assemble it, poke the switch and see if the contact makes actual contact. if it does reassemble the unit and go about your merry way. if it doesn't bend it a little bit more.

do not bend this contact any more than you have to as it will always read as door closed if it is bent too far.

    Had a broken striker piece. Replaced that thinking it would solve the problem but still wouldn't start (kept giving "dr" prompt). Was about to order the door switch assembly and saw this post. Figured if the thing was broken anyway, what does it hurt to dissect it? Pulled apart, gave the contact a little bend and then after a few min of trying to get the stupid white contact and spring back in place, re-assembled to washer. Works great! Thanks for saving me $65!

We have had the absolute worst experience with this washer. It beeps any time, turns on and off ALL the time, and we never know if and/or when the washer will actually come on and wash the clothes. I've had to smell the clothes in the morning to see if it actually turned on over night and washed the clothes.

We have had it replaced once under the warranty and will have to go back to the dealer before the warranty ends to try and get a new/different model washer - one the WORKS.

Has anyone else ever had this problem?

U should be able to get to your pump from underneath or from the back dont try taking front panel of because you have to take the lid/front fasure and then u will be able to get to the screws your pump will be blocked with more than likely blocked with a coin usual thing

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.

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.

jahn27_556.jpg

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").
