    also have ddo code. Don't see where a magnate would go as someone suggested it might have to connect to sensor for starting (or something). Tried unplugging then looked for magnate location. Any other ideas? Order new dispensor door?

Washer is reading ddo. what does that mean?


Hi
Error DDO means dispenser drawer open. This error appears when the washer senses that the dispenser door is not closed. If the dispenser door seems to be closed then it seems to be an issue with the magnet. There is a little magnet attached to the right hand side of the detergent drawer which activates a reed switch & signals the washer that the drawer is closed. This magnet might have moved from its place and that's why you are getting error DDO. Pull the drawer out and check the handle part for a magnet. When the drawer is closed the magnet activates a switch in the console that tells the control the detergent drawer is closed. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

This washer has an error code of DDO, Dispenser door open, would you think a sensor issue or something more?


Hi,


The meaning for ddo error means"Dispenser Drawer Open" .To rectify this problem you should try opening and closing the door shut. There will be a magnet which shows that the door is closed or open.The magnet is underneath the dispenser door, you have to remove the dispenser from the washer, then take apart the dispenser itself to view the magnet. If the magnet is missing you have to replace it.
Thank you !!

Frigidaire Front load washer with ''ddo'' code


The DDO trouble code means that the detergent(D) dispenser(D) door is not closed properly((O)open).
The door uses a reed switch and a magnet to send the door closed signal to the control card.If the
magnet becomes dislodged you will get this code.You will need to have the magnet replaced in
its proper position to clear this code.

We are getting an error code ddo on our wahser?


The DDO error is telling you that the detergent door is open. This error occurs when the detergent door has not latched properly when the unit is started.

There is a sensor that is dependant on a magnet, that is attached to the door, to trip it and send the proper door closed signal to the control oard. If this magnet comes off, or loose the signal will not be sent to the control board, and the error code will be displayed.

Now for the bad news. The magnet is in such a position that a considerable amount of labor is required to replace it.

Unless you are mechanicly inclined and handy with a box of tools I do not recommend that you attempt this repair. It is very involved and is not a DIY repair. It is best to let a tech handle this repair. An approximate price range for this repair is $175.00 to $275.00, or more depending on where you live.

Fridgidare Model #LTF2940ESO won't start Error Message DDO


The code means the detergent door is open. There is a magnet placed inside the detergent door cover housing that has probably fallen out. This magnet completes a circuit when the door is closed. It usually happens when cleaning the compartment and can usually be found stuck somewhere on the washer metal body itself or somewhere on the path you took while taking it to wash it out. Take the detergent tray out and dissamble it by pushing open the plastic tabs that hold it together. Look for the small 1"long magnet. If there isn't one. take your tray assembly to a repair dealer and have them put a new one back in. It is just a few dollars and your problem will be solved.

Frigidaire + ddo error code


Excellent solution. I had a similar problem. The trick is to figure out where to put the magnet. I had a hard time with that.

For those like me who might have difficulty finding the spot for the magnet, it goes on the right hand side of the detergent door. The easiest way to do it is to pull the detergent door all the way out of the machine and look at it such that the back of the door is facing you. The magnet fits vertically in a slot on the left side as you are looking at the door (right side of the doorwhen inserted in the machine) in the white plastic. It sits vertically and is held by a small latch. This is not obvious at all...

Frigidare front load washer error code


Could be "detergent drawer open". Try opening and closing the door shut. There is a magnet there which shows that the door is closed or open. Use front loading washing powders preferably.
