Thank you for your post, campy chaney!
I understand that your Frigidaire washer is displaying an error code of "PAV". "PAV" is not a valid error code, your washer maybe displaying a "PAU" error code. It could be a possible issue with a low light on your LED panel. If it is a "PAU" code that could be an interruption within your cycle. I would suggest performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. When you restore power to your washer and continue receiving the "PAU" code I would suggest having a professional technician out. This could be a possible problem with your control panel, door latch, or door strike. Since it could be anyone of these underlying having a technician out would help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

Hi friend, thanks for your inquiry!
If your washer continues to display an error code of "PAU" it could be an issue with your door lock but if the door strike is not sitting properly within the latch your washer will continue to provide the error code "PAU". Additionally, if your control panel is registering that the door is closed you may continue to experience the "PAU" code. I would recommend having a professional come and properly diagnosis your washer to prevent any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful. -OOS

Hey friend, thanks for your inquiry!
I see off your post your Frigidaire washer is showing a "PAU 12" code. Typically "PAU" stands for pause which means the cycle has been interrupted. I would open and close the door to assure that there is a proper connection between the door strike and door latch. If you check that and still receive the "PAU" I would recommend a reset, which can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

PAU is short for pause; the machine detected something wrong so it paused itself. Unplug it from the wall for a minute and plug it back in, it may reset. Once you plug it back in, it should display a Numerical code. You need to find out what's that error code mean.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
