Question about Frigidaire ATF6700FS Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I'm getting a door error "dr" on my ATF6700SF0 washer. How can I determine whether to replace the door lock assembly or the control board?

All other lights are working, but when I hit the start button the 'dr' error message comes on. Could it be an alignment problem, or more likely that the door switch needs replacing... or the control board. How do I know which it may be?

Hi Curt, this is AP

I understand you are having trouble with an error code on your Frigidaire front load washer. On your particular model, ATF6700FS, the error code "DR" indicates that the door is open or there is a problem with the door. If you know the door is not open you should check the door switch and wiring. If you need assistance with replacing the door switch I would recommend contacting an authorized technician in your area. I hope this information proves helpful to you, thank you for the post.

Thanks,

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.

SOURCE: Frigidaire ATFB6000ES1 won't do anything...

My Frigidaire was doing the same thing. I tried holding the Start/Pause buttons, but I didn't get an error code or anything.
So just for the heck of it my husband unplugged it for 5 seconds, then he held down the Option and the Select buttons together and then only the spin light was on so I pushed start and it started. I guess it was stuck on spin.

Good Luck !

SOURCE: Frigidaire Front Load Washer won't Spin

i fixed mine about 5 times and its always some thing diffrent.
try buyng the inexpencive parts first and leave for last the electronic control panel.
it could be that your washing a smaller amount than the recomended.
Take it to a profesional. dont do like me a DIY guy. Some times i need to take pictures when taking the monster appart and then because they are somany screws missing duct tape, rope or hangerwire becomes usefull.
All mechanics are wise guys you and me are thevictims.

LOC showing on screen


Hello Annie, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

I see you are still receiving error code "LOC" even after replacing the door lock assembly. Let's try unplugging your washer once again to determine if it is a false error code. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn your washer on. Before selecting a cycle, press OPTIONS and SELECT at the same time for 20 seconds until "LOC" is no longer displayed. If the error code does not clear, then your washer more than likely may be experiencing an issue with the control board or wiring harness. I hope this information helps to some degree.

Error code 41


The error code E41 means the control board is detecting an open door switch. It might be due to a broken wire harness, broken door lock/switch assembly, or in worst cases a faulty control board.

Unplug the machine or disconnect power. Open the washer door then look for the retaining hoop securing the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Stretch the spring of the retaining hoop then remove it.

jahn27_446.jpg

Carefully peel off the part of the door seal from the lip of the door opening near the door lock/switch assembly. Remove enough of the door seal to gain access to the door lock and switch assembly.

jahn27_447.jpg

Remove the screws securing the door lock/switch assembly
to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.

jahn27_448.jpg

Take the door lock/switch assembly out of the front panel then
disconnect the door switch harness then short circuit the terminals by putting a jumper wire between them.

jahn27_449.jpg

Put the door lock/switch assembly back into position in the front panel then secure it with the securing screws previously removed.
Properly put the eased part of the door seal back over the lip of the door opening then secure it with the retaining hoop. Reconnect power and run a test cycle. Replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) to address the problem if the washer works fine with the door switch bypassed. If not, replace the control board.

F 11 fault


F-11 error code is a communication error between the main control and the motor control. I recommend unplugging the washer and removing the access panels. Then check the electrical connections on the main and motor control boards. After the connections are checked, replace the panels and check the operation. I have added the information on the Fdl error code because it is usually associated with the F11 code.

The FdL fault code indicates that you have a problem with the door lock assembly. This is often caused by a failed door lock but it can also be caused by a failed wiring harness connection or in some instances by a failed control board.

Check for damage to the door hook on the washer door and look for anything that could be clogging the catch on the door lock assembly on the front panel of the washer.
You may need to check the wire harness connections on the door lock assembly. The images below show the procedure for accessing the door lock assembly on this type of washer. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components.

I have seen the failure be caused by a door lock and a faulty machine control board. A little trick I have found is to remove the top of the washer and push down lightly on the connector that is labeled dls5 this connector should have four black wires. This connector is located on the machine control board under the top. Use an insulated screwdriver to push on the connector and start a cycle. If the door locks and the washer works, I recommend replacing the machine control. It has a bad solder joint on the board. We often see error code F11 also with bad solder joints on the control board. If pushing on the connector did not make a difference, I would suspect a faulty door lock first.

I hope helps (remember to rate this free answer).

44082 is the model #


he code "dr" means the control doesn't see the door switch being closed.This can mean the door catch is broken or the door is bent and not shutting all the way or clothes are preventing the door from shutting all the way but most likely it means the door lock assembly needs to be replaced.
Check the door strike is not broken and make sure the door is shutting evenly. If the door is shut fully and the "dr" error keeps occurring then replacing the lock assembly 131763245 will most likely fix this problem.
The switch can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect . Remember to unplug the washer first before attempting to change the switch.
The image below contains the instructions to access and change the latch. Changing the latch is easy the tough part is putting the spring back on. Sometimes it helps to have two extra hands when trying to reinstall the wire/spring.
I hope this information helps you resolve this problem but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

What is e47 code mean


The problem is with th door lock assembly or the control board. You can meter the PTC on the door lock assembly to determine if the problem is in the lock or control board. If PTC meters open or closed = bad door lock assembly. 1200 to1500 ohms = bad control board.

Kenmore Oasis has error code dl


The dL error code is a door lock error. The control board will attempt 6 times to lock the door before displaying the F dL error code. This is an indication that either the door lock is malfunctioning or the control board is not responding to the door locking circuit. Be sure the door is securely closed before attempting to start the washer. Open the door & check for clothing or something that may be stuck in the door boot area. If the door is securely closed & you still have the error code I would recommend having the door lock assembly replaced.

Good Luck and Please rate
