Error code LOC ?


LOC means that the control lock has been engaged. (This feature also keeps a child from changing any setting when a load is in progress or starting the dryer with the cat in the unit.) On at least one Frigidaire dryer, press and hold the Options and Select touch pads for at least 10 seconds (until the display changes) to toggle the lock on and off.

Usually, the two keys to press for the Control Lock will have a line between them with a padlock symbol in the middle of the line. (This symbol will be in a very small font.) This may help you find the keys to press if other models of Frigidaire dryers use a different combination of touch pads.

I hope this helps.

HOW TO CLEAR THE LOC CODE ON MY FRIGIDAIRE WASHER


This means that the child lock (control lock) feature is active. There will be a button (or pair of buttons) depending on the model that you need to press and hold to toggle off the feature. If it is a single button, there will be a tiny padlock icon on the button. If you need to press and hold two buttons, the padlock symbol will be in a line indicating both buttons.

A likely combination is the Select and Option buttons. These should be held together for 10+ seconds. (This is the combination for some Affinity washers.)

If this doesn't work and you can't see a lock icon, please add a comment with the model number of your washer. I'll be glad to check what the combination is for your washer. The model number is usually on a plaque on the rim of the door for front loading washers or at the back at the top of the drum for a top loading washer.

I hope this helps.

Electrolux edc77570w dryer. No power problem- machine simply wont turn on. Replaced fuse on plug+ checked wall socket and is fine. Any idea what the problem might be?


It can be the control panel that is not switching the main motor to spin or the functions to start off. But it is most required that you MUST trace and check the main power line to confirm if this is related to the program unit.

A red padlock symbol is showing on the panel of my WCVH6800 front load washer. I can't change any of the wash settings. How do I fix this?


Here's what the Padlock represents:


Lock Function

You can lock the controls to prevent any selections from being made. Or you can lock the controls after you have started a cycle. children cannot accidentally start the washer by touching pads with this option selected.


To lock the washer, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds (on some models use SIGNAL button). To unlock the washer controls, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds. The control lock icon on the display will light up when it is on.


NOTE: The POWER button can still be used when the machine is locked.

Dryer will not stop running


Your machine may have a feature called wrinkle guard or wrinkle shield, which basically keeps tumbling the clothes without heat to prevent wrinkles from setting in. Turn that feature off and see if that does the trick.
