Pressing the options and select buttons simultaneously for 5-10 seconds worked. For me it happened this way: on the first attempt, with the indicator lights already "timed-out" and off, pressing and holding the options and select buttons simultaneously for 5-10 seconds caused the lights to come back on and flash the "LOC" code again. But holding the options and select buttons together for 5-10 seconds a second time caused the indicator lights to stop flashing, and allowed me to start the cycle.
Same error on our machine. This solution did not fix ours but I did figure out that we have a little lock (loc) symbol under our options and select buttons. Pushed and held them both at the same time, heard a pop which evidently unlocked the machine and we are back in business. We think our 1 year old was playing with the buttons.

Hi. Different numbers of LED's flashing mean different faults.
Your machine can be in "lock " mode.
To unlock it, turn the machine on.
Move the joystick full forward until it beeps.
Then move the joystick full reverse until it beeps.
The machine should then work normally.
If you still have flashing LED's, count the flashes between the pauses, and let me know.
Good luck. Neil.
The 'Start' & 'Pause' LED's will flash together to indicate the
error code. You have to count the flashes within each 15 second period
to get that error code. The start and the pause LED's will flash
together at 1Hz (i.e 1 flash per second) within that 15 second time
frame, then will continue and show again within another 15secs and so
1 Flash = Interlock fault
2 Flashes = Fill time-out
3 flashes = Drain time-out
4 flashes = Overfill fault presure pipe blocked
5 flashes = NTC error
6 flashes = faulty control board
7 flashes = Motor jammed
8 flashes = Tacho fault
9 flashes = Motor triac on module board
10 flashes = Prog Selector or wiring fault
This may be a simple control fault that can be reset by unplugging for 5 minutes or switching the breaker switch off for five minutes also. if the five minute reset doesn't restore the machine to its original operational value, you will then need to replace the main control board in this unit. it has failed.
The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.
LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.
I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.

pcb as the signs were that the pcb was stuck in a programme and unable to change. Anyway, long story short, to fix it: Take the lid off the washing machine (2 screws at the back) *unplug first Locate the pcb, unscrew and lift above the washing machine with all wires in tact. Locate the wires that are coming out of the back of the "program" board, it should be 2 blue wires. Follow these back to the pcb and unplug plug in washing machine Turn on washing machine Only the on/off light should come on Whilst on, and being careful, plug back in the wires you unplugged VOILA, fixed washing machine!!
Right, have to go, got a weeks worth of washing to do!!!!
Telescope, Im assuming your model starts with 417.44092, Kenmore made by Frigidaire. You have the best model with the digital display. Try unplugging the machine for 5 minutes to see if you can reset the board. If that doesn't work put it into a test mode by doing the following: Turn the dial to drain spin, press cancel to turn off the led's. Within 5 seconds press and hold the options and pause/cancel together for 5 seconds. All the led's should light. Now by turning the dial 1 click at a time clockwise you are going to test the following. 1rst click- hot water solenoid 2. bleach solenoid 3. Bleach and wash water solenoid 4. door lock solenoid activates 5. door lock solenoid de-activates. 6. the washer will fill and tumbe. 7. washer will fill and spin 8. drain pump and door lock will activate and washer will go in high spin. 9 clicks from the start, the last error code will be displayed. To clear the error, press and hold the options and cancel buttons for 3 seconds. To exit the test, just unplug the washer for 5 seconds. Sometimes these electronic boards just get a glitch and have to be reset. Make sure that the dispensor door is shut all the way. Try these things first...Catriver..post back.
