FRIGIDAIRE FRONT LOAD WASHER WON'T START. DOOR LOCK WILL NOT LOCK. DOOR LOCK LIGHT IS OFF. PULL START HANDLE OUT/ NOTHING. HEAR CLICKING WHEN TURNING SELECTOR SWITCH/BUT WILL NOT LOCK DOOR OR TURN LIGHT ON...


Good Morning REDS, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your door indicates it is open and your washer will not operate. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle, confirmed the latched is securely latched and verify if the washer will start. If the washer will not operate then it possibly have a faulty door lock assembly or a communication problem with the control board. At this point, it would be advisable to contact an experienced appliance repair tech to assist further.

Why won't my door lock?


If the door lock will not engage, then the door lock will need to be replaced. Here is the lock to order.

All cycles are working except the spin cycle. I have visually inspected the wiring connections and motor and dont see any obvious issues. There are no error codes and the LED lights seem to be functioning...


Because of the high spin speeds of front load washers, the doors are equipped with a latch and lock mechanism to prevent the door from being opened during the washers operation. These locks will often be actuated by a solenoid or wax motor to ensure they remain latched during the wash cycle. This model uses a two stage lock that latches the door when the load starts, and then when it is time to spin, the second lock engages to ensure the door is properly secured prior to beginning the spin. When this second lock engages, it also closes a set of switch contacts (the auxiliary door switch) telling the control board the door is closed and locked. If for some reason this switch is not closed, the washer will tumble during what would normally be the spin cycle until the entire cycle is complete.

Door lock wont engage


YOU MAY HAVE BROKEN THE BUTTON, A SMALL PIN LIKE PUSH BUTTON THAT PUSHES IN TO LET THE DOOR LOCK KNOW THE DOOR IS SHUT. YOU CAN USUALLY FIND A SMALL DIAMETER OBJECT LIKE WHAT IS IN A RETRACTABLE BALL POINT PEN TO SLIP INTO THE HOLE WHERE THE BROKEN PIN IS AS A TEMPORARY REPLACEMENT AND TO CONFIRM THIS IS ACTUALLY THE PROBLEM. IF IT IS, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY FOR PERMANENT REPAIR. DON'T SLAM THE DOOR SHUT BECAUSE THESE PARTS ARE MADE OF PLASTIC AND BREAK EASILY!

My Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't start: the "door locked" button doesn't come on though the door is closed properly


If the washer fills with water, but will not start the wash cycle or spin, it is 1 of to things. the most common for frigidaire front load affinitys is the door lock assembly. I have had to replace numerous of these. if the door lock indicator is not on when it tries to wash, you need to replace the door lock assembly. if the door lock indicator is on, but wont wash, it is likly that you have a bad motor control board.
