What you describe still sounds like a door switch problem but if you can run it through the diagnostic cycle then it should be ok.
The only thing different in starting diagnostics and starting normal cycle is you don't press the start button in diagnostics.
If you know how to put it into manual diagnostics you can check all the buttons to make sure they are working properly.
It is unusual to have 2 different problems at the same time and if the switch was broken, it definately would not start the cycle.
Put it into manual diagnostics and check the start button.
Post back and we will go from there.
Thanks/Mike

Check the cold water line into the unit. Remove the hose from the washer and clean the screen. flush the line while it is disconnected into a bucket or small garbage can. Your washer wont advance without a fill and most fills/rinses are with cold water

1. Unplug washer.
2. Remove the outer portion of the door bellow. This is the gray rubber boot around the door. Feel around the edge of the door bellow where it attaches to the front of the washer. You will find a wire retaining hoop in the seam between the rubber and the front case. Follow this wire hoop to the bottom of the door bellow and you will find a tension spring. Carefully, stretch this spring apart and remove the wire hoop.
3. Pull the rubber bellow from the door facing on the front of the washer being careful not to rip or tear it. Once removed, fold the rubber backwards inside the drum so you can access behind the front panel. DO NOT remove the rubber bellow from the wash tub.
4. The door latch assembly is located behind the front panel of the washer on the right hand side. Locate and remove the three screws on the washer front that hold the door latch assembly in place. The whole assembly should come free from the washer front and be held by a plastic mounting bracket and several wire connectors.
5. Carefully remove the latch assembly from the plastic mounting bracket BEFORE attempting to unplug any wires. It makes it much easier to access if you do.
6. Unplug the wire connectors using care not to break any of the wires. You may want to write them down, but I believe they will only plug into their respective slots.
7. Remove the old door latch and install the new one in the reverse order of the steps I just presented to you. Plug the wires back in first, then place the whole assembly back into the plastic mounting bracket, and then reattach to the front of the washer.
8. Now, when you get the reinstalling the rubber door boot, you may want to get the assistance of a second pair of hands as it can be difficult sometimes to manipulate the wire retainer back into place. Carefully reattach the rubber bellow to the door facing on the front of the washer first.
9. Starting at the top of the door bellow at the 12 o'clock position begin inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Work your way around with both hands to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (This is where you could use those second pair of hands). While holding a slight downward tension on the wire hoop to keep it in place, pull the tension spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop into place at the bottom. Once you've completed these steps make sure the door closes and latches properly. NEVER slam a door with an electronic latch. They can break easily.

Now plug the washer back in and test operate. NOTE: You can run diagnostics on these washers by referring to the tech sheet provided by the manufacturer. The tech sheet is located behind the lower panel under the door, or along the interior cabinet walls. Included, are instructions on how to run diagnostics and troubleshooting tips associated with the list of fault codes. It is recommended that this tech sheet remain inside the washer to prevent it from being lost.

Why is control stuck on pause?


Thank you for allowing me to assist you, Friend.

If you are receiving an error code PAUSE, it commonly indicates that the door of your washer is not securely latched or the cycle has been interrupted. Try pressing "PAUSE/CANCEL" or "START/PAUSE" once to resume cycle. If these basic troubleshooting tips prove ineffective, try reprogramming your appliance by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is best to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your washer. If the issue persists, then your washer could possibly have a faulty door latch 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. Hope this helps! - Z

Always on pause and do not want to start back


Hi benpatoine - Usually when "PAU" displays on the screens, it indicates that the unit thinks that the door is not securely latch when you started the cycle, or the cycle has been interrupted. Try pressing "PAUSE/CANCEL" or "START/PAUSE" once to resume washer. If proves to be ineffective, try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. If fault reoccurs, then it typically means that the unit has a faulty door latch. If you are certain that the door is properly shut, then the latch assembly may need replacing. Consult a professional to assist with the repairs.

Dryer won't spin belt good


Hi,

Your problem says dryer but the category says washer. I wrote this answer thinking the problem was washer. Sorry but I haven't had opportunity to fix my dryer before so can't help you there. If however your problem is the washer (or is anyone else is reading this), please read on... you should find some ideas here.

First you have to check the error code. If your washer does not have a digital display you have to do the following:

1. press any button to "wake up" the machine.
2. press and hold the start and pause buttons.
3. count the flashing lights.
a) first the five lights plus the start light will flash. Count.
b) then the start light will flash. Count.
4. error code is E +# of times in a + total # of flashes in a and b.

Example: flashes start light plus all five lights 4 times, then a pause, then start light alone 3 times. Error code is E47.

There are lots of error codes but E47 and E43 are both door problems. Check out the following document for a lengthy (but understandable) troubleshooting guide. E47 and E43 both say to do Test 9, which is test the resistance of the PTC. If it's not working then you have to replace the door latch assembly (about $80), if it reads around 1500 Ohms you have to replace the control board (about $250).
http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Webster/134542000.pdf

First, let me say that I have no idea how to test the PTC but it can't be hard with a standard multimeter (I will be doing this tomorrow with my Dad).

Second, the removal to access the door latch assembly is stupid easy - check out the following YouTube.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prkM2XMoOJk

Third, if you have a different error code just look up the test in the manual document above.

Hope that helps!

Washer won't start, makes a clicking noise and than a code comes upF DL


Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. Error “dlf” or f dl means a door latch failure. This means that you’ll need to replace the door latch assembly however before doing that you can leave the washer unplugged for 30minutes so that it resets itself. In the meantime when it’s unplugged just inspect the door latch wiring to ensure all the connector plugs are intact and not loose or broken. You can access the door latch wiring harness by removing the top panel of the washer. To remove the top panel just remove the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then lift off. Locate the door latch assembly behind the front panel on the right hand side. Trace all the connectors from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and make sure they are properly seated at both ends. If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you have to get the door latch replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.



Thanks

Kenmore Elite HE4t Washer door won't lock


Im assuming that the part number youve mentioned is for the new door latch assy?? Unfortunately the problem could also be in the Main CCU. Ive had several of this design have intermittent door lock codes and not lock the door....It was the CCU in most. This washer should have a full years warranty for parts and labor. Perhaps the sears people didnt understand its still under warranty. I wouldnt want for you to waste your money on the door latch if it is the Main computer. Also you may want to remove the top of the machine and check the wiring connectors going to and from the CCU and the latch.

Washer displays DL error


The FdL fault is a door lock error code. It sounds like you may have a bad door latch. Unplugging it and/or pushing the cancel button will not clear the fault as long as the fault condition exists. At best, you may have to replace the door latch. At worst, the CCU (main computer) could also be bad, causing the fault. The door latch can run about $50. The CCU is about $200. Double check all you wiring first before replacing any parts. I hope this will help you.

Frigidaire Front Loading Washer, ATF6000ES stuck on pause mode - HELP!


I fixed this myself and it only took about 5 minutes. The problem is the door latch needs to be reset, which requires unplugging it's three electrical connections. This has to be done inside the washer outer seal, but it is easy to get to. First remove the outer ring that holds the seal on. Next remove only the side of the seal closest to the door latch (again only the outer seal needs to be undone). With this done remove the two screws holding the door latch in place (inside). Remove the latch, unplug the three connectors, plug them back in then reassemble everything. When all is back in place hit "cancel" and it should be good to go.
