Turn off the mains hold power on
turn on the mains plug

have you tried holding in buttons and turning on the mains
wait a min??

perhaps it wont lock the door because of a connection fault

the controller is detecting your closing the door
next in the routine is usually start to detect motor and add water
perhaps the intake valve has failed and the machine isnt detecting water...?

SOURCE: push start different sound water may start may not start pause

I would check to make sure the connectors to that door lock are all connected. If they are it's probably the lock/switch mechanism itself. Wow I just checked and they are about $120. The p/n is wh10x10006 You can google around for the best price. Good luck!

SOURCE: door not locking on front load washer

No reset, sounds like a bad door lock switch. The unit is under warranty, call for service.

SOURCE: Door locked on compact Whirlpool front-load washer

This worked for me. I turned off the washer and hit the area on the washer directly to the right of the door handle (not hard enough to break something or cause a dent). It popped right open.

SOURCE: no start,the door interlock is just making a knocking sound.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

How can you tell when the door lock is bad on a 2011 frigidiare affinity front loader washer


Mike,
I understand that you are wanting to know how to tell if the door lock is going bad on your Frigidaire Affinity washer. One way to tell is if the washer is telling you that the door is not shut or locked when it is. Try to reset the appliance for 3 minutes, by either unplugging it or resetting the circuit breaker. If you are still having trouble with the door lock, I would suggest to have a local authorized technician to come look at the lock and fix it if necessary.
-Best Regards-

You need to replace the door lock mechansim. Fairly easy to do yourself, just pull the spring strap off the rubber door gasket and remove 2 screws holding door lock. Install new door lock and re-install door gasket and spring strap, and WALLA! she works:)

Your door lock is not fitting correctly!
This is a safety override to make sure that the washer does not fill with water & leak all over the floor because the door is not locked properly!

Suggest you get the door lock mechanism checked out and adjusted. It could be that this has either become blocked with soap powder or cotton material shedded from your clothing over time.
The latch is normally available as a spare part, so you could check this out with your local Simpson dealer, or buy it on the internet once you know the part ref number.

Simpson washer 45S558E manual needed


You should be able to download from www.simpson.com.au, click on "downloads", then click on "manuals" on the front load washers section. However, I just tried this, and there seems to a broken link on the website. You can contact the Simpson Help by clicking on "FAQ's", which has an email link to customer service, as well as a customer service phone number. Maybe the faulty manual link will be repaired in the near future?? Good Luck!!

Resetting washer after the problem is fixed


Did you unplug the washer at any point while you were repairing it? Normally, to reset some minor glitches with the washer all that is required is to unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes. This will reset the CCU. If you had the power secured, the problem SHOULD have gone away with the installation of the new door latch. Unless...you purchased a defective door latch, or have a faulty wiring harness. What was the error code you originally experienced? The reason I ask, is because if this is a Kenmore Elite Front Loader as the one pictured above, there is no "lf" error code. "Fdl" and "Fdu" error codes are usually the indication of a defective door latch. Could you please post back and clarify this information for me?

Simpson Ezi Loader 5.5kg 45S558E does not complete a cycle when loaded with clothes. Will complete a cycle when no clothes placed in drum.


I'd say that belt might be loose a bit so it slips under load. That would explain why the motor can rotate empty basket but not the loaded (heavy) basket.
