HI. This particular unit has a built in safety feature that will not allow the heating element to operate without the door being completely closed. Make sure the door is completely closed all the way and latched, properly. If the door is closed properly and the unit continues to read"door open", this will lead to a failed safety door pressure switch or door latch assembly.

Additionally; Make sure that the door has not been jammed or misaligned. Check the door hinges for faults and the latch assembly as well. The door pressure switch should be mounted on the edges of the actual door where it meets the rim. If not there, then the door switch may be incorporated into the latch assembly. In that case, replace the entire door latch assembly.

Kenmore H2 Plus door won't open.

see the causes and fix it: God bless you
irst to unlock depending on model. There will be a pull tab either under the lower kick panel, behind the filter cover, or under the top panel. Pull this tab to unlock the door. Now you can remove the clothes and water. Refer to the owners manual for the location of your emergency door pull tab.

Door Switch
You will need to remove the door switch to check it. You will perform an ohm reading on the bottom terminals. The reading varies from manufacturers most Frigidaires is around 1500 ohms others like the whirlpool duet is checked at the main control board with the door closed should be around zero ohms. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading.

Main Control Module / CCU
The main control unit is the circuit board located behind the console. If the door switch tests good the main control is usually the problem. Check all connections for a goood tight fit. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual to check this further. The main control is easy to replace.

Hello!WE had recent power outage ,now door opener won't work.unit has power lights come on when remote pad pressed,but nodoor action?thank you

Along with the power outage you probably also had a power surge. You need to pull the logic board and check the printed circuit board for burnt or missing traces. Unplug the unit first.

My frigidaire affinity ATF8000FS2 went thru the wash cycle but won't spin. Error Code is 41. How do I fix it. The washer is only 1.5 years old and is used maybe once or twice a week. I hope this is...

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

E41 error indicates that the problem is with door lock assembly, it is displayed when the control board thinks that the door switch is open. To solve this problem you have to remove the door lock assembly and measure the resistance of the PTC. If it reads open then the door lock assembly needs replacement however, if the reading is around 1500 ohms then replacing the control board is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
