This sounds like a faulty micro switch on the door catch. Try pressing inwards on the door glass at the catch area whilst you press start and hold it oressed for a few seconds until it either starts or displays the error again, if the error shows it may require a new switch, the switch can be tested by bypassing it and joining the two wires together that plug onto the switch. The switch can be accesses by removing the dor seal from the outer most edge.

Loc error code on Frigidaire frontloader


To avoid having someone accidentally start or stop the washer, press OPTIONS and Select at the same time and hold for about 10 seconds until the Control Lock) lights up. "LOC" will be displayed alternately with the estimated cycle time. Turning the Cycle Selector knob or pressing any button will produce flashing indicator lights and/or beeping. To unlock the controls, press and hold OPTIONS and Select for about 10 seconds. Frigidaire GLTF2940ES3 Quick Start Manual Page 3

HOW TO CLEAR THE LOC CODE ON MY FRIGIDAIRE WASHER


This means that the child lock (control lock) feature is active. There will be a button (or pair of buttons) depending on the model that you need to press and hold to toggle off the feature. If it is a single button, there will be a tiny padlock icon on the button. If you need to press and hold two buttons, the padlock symbol will be in a line indicating both buttons.

A likely combination is the Select and Option buttons. These should be held together for 10+ seconds. (This is the combination for some Affinity washers.)

If this doesn't work and you can't see a lock icon, please add a comment with the model number of your washer. I'll be glad to check what the combination is for your washer. The model number is usually on a plaque on the rim of the door for front loading washers or at the back at the top of the drum for a top loading washer.

I hope this helps.

My frigidaire front load washer will not start. anytime I push a button on the front panel the "LOL" sign flashes. on the front of the washer panel d wash rinse final spin control lights are...


Is the message "LOL" or "LOC"? I suspect the child lock "LOC" has been activated. To toggle this off, press and hold Options and Select for 10+ seconds. This feature prevents someone from accidently starting or changing a cycle selection.

There is a small padlock icon in the middle of lines linking the two buttons that let you toggle the child lock on and off.

There are two Frigidaire washers with the model ATF6000ES (the S is followed by a 0 or a 1). The manuals for both are available here: http://www.frigidaire.com/manuals?model=ATF6000ES . The child lock feature is described in the Operating Instructions. For the ATF6000ES0, the direct link to the appropriate manual is http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Webster/134604400.pdf . See page 2 under Washer Features.

I hope this helps.
