Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Washer Kenmore 970.C4804200 I unplugged my washer for 12 hours and there're not changes. I did the check test from the manuifacturer and its appears an E41. I unplugged an plugged the door lock and I've againt he same problem that at the begining. I suppose that the problem comes from the door lock sensor but before buy it I want to know if I've to do others check tests or someting else to check.

SOURCE: PAU error code comes on
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.
Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if anything is not clear.
Thank's again for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

Hello friend, I appreciate your post!
I see from the information you have provided that your Frigidaire washer is displaying a PAU code. Normally means the washer has been paused, which could be cleared be pressing either the cancel button or start button once. If that does not clear the code you could try resetting the appliance by disconnecting power. This could be done one of two ways by either unplugging the washer or flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes. Please comment back I would like to know if this information has been helpful. -Matt

Hello Mary Fortner - It means that the washer has been paused; the cycle has been interrupted. Either the "Pause/Cancel" button or "Start/Pause" button has been pressed. To resume wash - press "Pause/Cancel" or "Start/Pause" once. If this does not prove to be successful please turn the breaker to the unit off for 5 minutes. Then turn the breaker back on to the unit, and retry the cycle setting again.
