Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
I opened the door while it was already washing a load, to put one more item in the load. I did this and walked away. Later that evening I checked on the washer and the display says "PAU" then "ERR". I pressed cancel numerous times and tried to reset the machine but nothing worked. I was told that if you press the cancel button and the start button simultaneously for 3 seconds, it would reset the machine; unfortunately, this did not work either.
Do you have any suggestions on how I might fix this?

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

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

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
