Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
We have an E41 error code, already replaced the door lock mechanism. Washer will work if we leave it unplugged over night and then goes back to the E41. I can not find anywhere that says where the control panel is located in the washer.
Hi Terry, for the most part, error code E41 does indicate a door lock mechanism failure; however, if you have already replaced that part, it is more than likely the control board. The control board is typically located right behind the control console. Before the control board l is replaced, be sure to confirm that your service technician has ordered the appropriate part. According to your post, it appears that you have model number ATF6000ES, which would require part number 134523106. Hope this information helps! Thanks for your question.

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.

E23 error code means the drain pump relay on the control board failed or wire off pump. You already replaced control board so check the wire at the pump and make sure it's secure.

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.

E20 is a drainage error. If there is water in the drum make sure the discharge pipe at the back of the machine is not kinked or blocked. You should also check the pump filter is not clogged - this is behind the front panel underneath the drum at the front of the machine.
E41 = Control board thinks the door switch is open. This points towards a faulty door switch on the machine.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many thanks.

Tips for a great answer:
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

Good Morning friend, that's a great question!
I see that your Frigidaire washer, ATF7000ES0, is displaying an error code of "E41" and you would like assistance in troubleshooting that code. An "E41" typically stands for your main control board thinks the door switch is open. This could be a possible problem with your door switch assembly or main control board. I would recommend performing a reset just in case there is a miscommunication within the board and you can do that by disconnecting power from your washer for roughly ten minutes. If you restore power and continue to see an "E41" I would look over the door switch to make sure it is not damaged. If any electrical components need to be replaced I would suggest having a professional technician out to properly disassemble your washer. This will help you to avoid any future issues. -Matt

I appreciate your post, Josh Orenstein!
From my understanding your Frigidaire washer is displaying "PAU" and "E41". "PAU" normally displays when there is an interruption to the cycle and "E41" means the main control board thinks the door switch is open. Either code can display due to a faulty door latch assembly, door strike, or main control board. You can attempt to perform a factory reset by holding down the Start/Pause button and Select button until a signal sounds. Also review the door latch and strike to see if there is any visible damage that could cause a short within the components. If there is no visible damage you may want to consult with a technician for proper diagnosis and repair of your washer. Hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Hello phrainer3 - Error code E41 indicates that the main control board thinks the door switch is open. Contact a professional to check the continuity between the pins in the plug and door strike. The unit either has a defective door switch assembly or main control board.

& Welcome to FixYa
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.
