All w/machines have a maximum load capacity. Look for yours in the users'manual. Overloading could give you problems, bearings, etc. Your machine cld even have a half load switch.

SOURCE: CONTROL LOCK and Can't start the GE front load washer - WSSH300GWW

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

SOURCE: washer control is locked

The following link explains how to correct a Control Lock problem for your washer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

I know this link is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet. The newer model Maytags are manufactured by Whirlpool (which also makes the Kenmore Elite) so these instructions should apply. Keep in mind control panel options between models may differ slightly, but the locking feature instructions should be printed on the front panel. If you are not sure, there should be a tech sheet inside the washer behind the lower kick panel under the door. If not directly behind the panel, the sheet should be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

If these preliminary measures do not correct the problem, you may have a more serious problem. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: The Control Lock feature is a built in safety feature that allows you to lock the front panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls.

SOURCE: frigidaire frontend washer LTF2140ES3 will drain not spin

There is an auxiliary switch in the door lock and switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle to advance to the spin cycle. When the machine works except advancing to the spin cycle, it signifies that this auxiliary switch cannot be activated and the door lock and switch assembly is faulty. Replaced the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) to fix the washer.

Disconnect power to the machine. Open the washer door then look for the retaining hoop securing the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Stretch the retainer spring of the door seal retaining hoop then remove it.

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

Remove the screws securing the door lock and 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.

Take the door lock and switch assembly out of the machine. Disconnect the wires from its terminals then connect it to the new door lock and switch assembly.

Put the new door lock and switch assembly back into position in the front panel and secure it with the securing screws.

Properly put the eased part of the door seal back over the lip of the door opening then secure it with the retaining hoop.

Frigidair LTF2140ES3 has no power to start switch, (good power at wall connection)


Hello Frank Webb - Does the cord or plug look damaged? If it does not, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. If it proves to be ineffective, I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly be experiencing an issue with the control board, faulty door lock assembly, faulty pump, or the timer itself is not operating correctly.

Loc coming up on frigidaire washer front load


The controls have been locked unintentionally and this is a safety feature to avoid having someone accidentally stop the washer or modify the cycle. It can be unlocked by pressing and holding the OPTIONS and SELECT buttons for 10 seconds or until the "LOC" is no longer displayed. Lock the controls with the same buttons and in the same way until "LOC" is displayed alternately with the estimated cycle time.

Loc code


the control panel is locked. on the control panel, there will be either a "lock" button that you hold down for 3-5 seconds to unlock, or it will have "lock" in small letters with a line pointing to 2 of the option buttons. hold the 2 buttons it points to for 3-5 seconds and it will unlock. the control lock is a child safty feature that will not allow any the washer to work until it is unlocked. P.S. to put the control panel into the lock mode, is the same way as you unlock the control panel.

I have a Frigidaire LTF2140ES3 washing machine. No matter what I select, I hear the door lock click, and then random clicking as it tries to go through the modes, but nothing happens.


sound like you need a door lock. your door lock is not locking or not tell the control that it is locked.. should try 6 times to lock before it will give up trying... hope it helps

Frigidaire front load, ERR LOC, washer won't run


Just had same problem. After removing boot/rubber gasket around opening, and replacing door lock assembly it still would not work giving the same ERR LOC message! Another site directed me to press the "Options" and "Select" buttons at the same time. BINGO! My husband was quite proud of me!
