    Please help ! I Have a frigidaire front loader and it starts showing "dr" when I try to start it.

    I have the same problem sometimes. I cannot figure out why it is a problems sometimes and not others. It seems to happen when I have a larger load, but nothing is touching the door and it closes easily. Owners manual says okay to fill to top without compressing.

    I keep getting dr error. The door is definitely shut. I've even held the door shut with pressure and I still get the error. It worked fine yesterday. There is nothing in the way and it is not a large load.

Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E DR error code

Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are receiving a "DR" error code on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model ATF7000E. The "DR" error code is stating that there is a possible problem with the door. This could also be a possible false error code. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Error code DR comes up on my Frigidaire Affinity and won't keep running

It is telling you there is something wrong with the door lock assembly. You will probably have to replace it, but check it first for a broken wire or some other problem that you can fix.
Here is a link to the part if you need it.

Here is a link to a service manual for your machine that will take you through the testing and repair process.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)

Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

My affinity washer will not close to start a cycle. the buzzer goes off and i get the code "dr" but it seems to close fine

Have a service technician test the sensor in the door jam that senses when the door is closed (this is signaled by the electronic lock).
