"Loc" error message

Have a frigidaire affinity front load washer that gives me the "loc" error when I press the start button. Any suggestions (other than beating it with a sledge hammer) would be greatly appreciated!

    Just fixed my own problem...hold the option and select buttons at the same time for several seconds and it will "unlock" the control panel. Tried this before, but did not hold them long enough.

Thank you so much, I tried this and it worked. I was so scared that my brand new washer was broke after my eight year old played with the buttons.

Frigidaire affinity dryer loc


LOC is a generic lock code meaning the door was either locked manually or accidentally. Also LOC will lock the control panel and can be manually locked as well. Try to reset the unit for about 10-15 minutes and retry.

Loc


It means the control is locked to avoid having someone accidentally start or stop the dryer. Press and hold the Options and Select buttons for 10 seconds or until the “LOC” on the display is cleared. Locking the control is done the same way it is unlocked.

Frigidaire front load, ERR LOC, washer won't run


Just had same problem. After removing boot/rubber gasket around opening, and replacing door lock assembly it still would not work giving the same ERR LOC message! Another site directed me to press the "Options" and "Select" buttons at the same time. BINGO! My husband was quite proud of me!

Frigidaire - GLTF2940FS0 -LOC message on display


Peace,
ngafm at your service,

With an error code or loc message the only way to find and to repair this is,

First unplug the washer and wait a ten minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem GREAT!!! WE WIN!


If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!


How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!


You will be fine
Bless You ngafm

Loc error


Greetings necie64,

The control panel may be in *LOCKED* mode.

Press the *OPTIONS* and *SELECT* buttons at the same time and hold for about three seconds to unlock the control panel.

Make sure the detergent tray is fully closed too.

I hope this helps!
