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!

    Thank you So Much!!! I called Sears who would not give me a reason for the LOC symbol. Finally after calling the 3rd time, a technician said it was a door loc issue. They said a technician could come out for an estimate at $75. Also, I could purchase warranty for $219.99 for repair of front loader with parts and labor up to $500. I did as you suggested pushing "OPTIONS" and "SELECT" and It's Working Again Perfectly! What a Relief!

The washer is not broken, that means the control panel is locked,(child safty feature), press the two buttons with the pad lock symbol in for 3 to 5 seconds and that will unlock it!!

    This was very helpful!! For my frigidaire front loader you press the Options and Select buttons at the same time to solve a LOC ERR. That is the large options button with the select button at the same time, took about 3 seconds!

    After a very frustrating 20 minutes, I finally found this solution and it worked brilliantly! Thanks a million>

I have a Kenmore washer (417.44082400), which is displaying alternately the following information: ERR LOC 37 The 37 indicates the usual minutes for our customary Permanent Press cycle. When Start is...


The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.

Washer wont start it says LOC when i push the star button then err this is a front load frigidaire gallery


This indicates there is an error with the door lock mechanism. It will most likely need to be replaced. This will prevent the dryer from working and is a safety feature to prevent injury while the dryer is in operation. It is fairly quick and cheap to repair.

When start is pressed ERR LOC displays, door


You can try clearing the code and then running the machine. Try colding down the pause and clear button simultaneously for three second s and the faul should clear Or try turning the knob around 9 times to clear the fault.

Frigidaire washer will not start. Get err and LOC codes.


All the lights are on, but the door lock. We have unplugged it, doesn't help. Our washer is the front load, model LTF 2140ES0.
