I too had the same problem, I closed the soap tray and a magnet popped out and got stuck to the door. Same problem with it acting like it was going to start and then beeped. This is where the magnet goes, just stick it back in, its held in with pressure (barely) :)

I took the whole control panel off to locate the magnetic reed switch, then just reverse engineered where the magnet is supposed to go on the soap drawer.

The control is most likely bad. If lights flash on front let me know which ones and how many as it will sometimes tell me what the failure is. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

What is code E41 on a Frigidaire Affinity ATF800FS. THE DOOR IS LOCK BUT THE DOOR LOCK INDICATOR WONT LIGHT UP & THE WASHER WONT SPIN


I appreciate your post, Trent!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is displaying an error code of E41 and the door is locked and will not open. An E41 error code means that your main control board thinks the door is open. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by disconnecting power from your washer for at least ten minutes. If that does not help correct your issue it could be a possible problem with your door lock assembly, control panel, or wiring harness. You may need to seek assistance from a professional technician to avoid unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful to you. -Matt

Model E402b. Why is the alarm going off?


Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.

Frigidaire door lock won't reset


Hello Steven Krenz - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Lock won`t open


Look for a button or sensor which turns the light off or which the door would press when closed.
If you find it hold it down for a minute, then let go this should reset the lock

Frigidaire stove door locked


I've had a similar problem - door is locked. If the door is open - locate the light switch and hold it in for a few seconds. Sometimes it makes a noise and resets the lock. Otherwise, push the Clean button and the Cancel button on front of oven simultaneously and hold for about 30 seconds. The ?locked? light should disappear. If it is working, you?ll hear a mechanical hum as it resets.
