Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

2 Answers

I have a Frigidaire front load washer #ATF6000SF1 and need to reset the PAU and E41 error code. I cannot get the unit into diagnostic mode to accomplish this. How can I reset this code?

Un-plugged unit. I have tried entering diagnostic mode but do not have the correct instructions. I may try disconnecting the door latch as if I was re-installing it as someone has said that this will release and reset the latch

Had same error code E41.The washing machine door would not lock closed or let machine start. Took a chance and bought the door latch assembly and a new strike. Parts and shipping cost less than $48.00 and installing was very simple. Changed out the switch, re-assembled all parts and plugged washer back in.
Back in business! Thanks for the advice - Mike

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

I have an error code E41 on my Frigidaire ATF7000eso front load washer. How do I test to find the bad part


Good Morning friend, that's a great question!

I see that your Frigidaire washer, ATF7000ES0, is displaying an error code of "E41" and you would like assistance in troubleshooting that code. An "E41" typically stands for your main control board thinks the door switch is open. This could be a possible problem with your door switch assembly or main control board. I would recommend performing a reset just in case there is a miscommunication within the board and you can do that by disconnecting power from your washer for roughly ten minutes. If you restore power and continue to see an "E41" I would look over the door switch to make sure it is not damaged. If any electrical components need to be replaced I would suggest having a professional technician out to properly disassemble your washer. This will help you to avoid any future issues. -Matt

Frigidaire front loading washer will not start will not stat, I get a PAU or ERR message, tried resetting by unplugging for an hour, removed and cleaned soap dispenser, and checked door for proper closure....


Thank you for your question, Friend.

If you are still receiving an error code PAU after resetting your washer, then the door of your washer is probably not securely latched or the cycle has been interrupted. Try pressing "PAUSE/CANCEL" or "START/PAUSE" once to resume cycle. If the issue persists, then your washer could possibly have a faulty door latch, door strike or experiencing a communication error with the control board. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts. Best - Z

Error message e41


Hello Friend, thank you for your inquiry!

If you are receiving an error code E41 on your Frigidaire front load washer, your loading door may be ajar. Double-check to ensure that it is closed. If it is secure, reset the power to your appliance for about 30 seconds. You can do this by unplugging your washer or flipping your circuit breaker into the off position. If the error persists, it could either be the door switch assembly or your washer's main control board. In that case, a certified technician would generally replace the faulty part after proper diagnosis.

Hope this helps! - Z

E41 Error + PAU and I've tried everything...I think?


Hi Kimberly - If you are receiving an error code E41, it typically indicates that the loading door may be ajar. Double-check to ensure that it is securely closing. If it is secure, and since the unit was unplug for several hours, but the issue continues, then the door switch assembly or your unit's main control board is generally the primary issue. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Fridgidaire upright washer E41


Hello Marcee Peterson - Typically error code E41 indicates that washer has detected that the main control board thinks the door switch is open. Try reprogramming the washer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately and properly assist with the repairs.

E41 - Control board thinks the door switch is open.

PAU means PAUSE in the cycle; if you are try all methods, I assume that the control panel needs to be replaced.

FRIGIDAIRE LTF2940FS1 Error Code "PAU"


Hi


PAU is short for pause; the machine detected something wrong so it paused itself. Unplug it from the wall for a minute and plug it back in, it may reset. Once you plug it back in, it should display a Numerical code. You need to find out what's that error code mean.



Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

PAU error code comes on when iI test it it shows e41 door lock


Hello, welcome to FixYa

Based on the info you provided, specifically the E41 error, It sounds like the unit is detecting an unlocked door, loose wire, or the control itself is bad. (E41= Shorted or open. Defective door lock assembly.Around 1500Ohms. Defective control board.)

The PAU simply indicates the control thinks it has been paused...that may be just a side affect of the door lock assembly.

Here's how to check...

**Unplug the unit from the wall first...safety first**

Remove the door lock assembly and measure the resistance of the PTC. Should get a reading of around 1500ohms.


Attached here is a great tutorial for accessing the assembly for testing and replacing.
