    I can not get my control panel to unlock. I paused it to add an item and it started flashing between PAU, 52 min and Loc. Now it's off and no matter what button I hold/push it flashes 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.

What does E61 service call on my frigidaire affinity mean???


read the whole manual no code e61 ?


READING ERROR CODES

1. Rotate cycle selector knob to the 3 O'clock position.

2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.

3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.

4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O'clock position. The four indicator lights of Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid

(Press Saver), and Clean Lint Filter will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code and the START indicator

light will flash the number of times for the second digit. Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to

confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting the number of times

the lights flash. Example E24: The four indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the START indicator light

will flash four times indicating the 4. The four indicator lights and the START indicator light start flashing at the same

time. The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.

NOTE: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine. A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15

Example Code E4A: the first digit would be 4 and the second digit would be 10. The four indicator lights would blink four

times and the START indicator light would blink ten times. Troubleshoot the problem by using the chart below.

To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.

To clear code, press the Select button. Code will be cleared when mode is exited.

To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.

Error Code Label Description Solution

E10 General EEPROM

Fault

Problem with communication

between EEPROM and the

microprocessor.

Clear code, exit mode and start dryer. If problem persists, replace electronic

control.

E11 Checksum Error Problem with communications or

memory did not check, one has

become corrupted.

Clear code, exit mode and start dryer. If problem persists, replace electronic

control.

E12 Non fatal R/W

error

Problem reading or writing to the

memory or input/output.

Clear code, exit mode and start dryer. If problem persists, replace electronic

control.

E24 Control NTC Short

Circuit

Control thermistor or its wiring is

shorted.

Remove wires from control thermistor. Measure resistance of thermistor. If

reading is not 50 K (± 10%), replace thermistor. If reading is within 50 K (±

10%), check wiring between thermistor and electronic control. If good,

replace electronic control.

E25 Control NTC Open

Circuit

Control thermistor or its wiring is

open.

Remove wires from control thermistor. Measure resistance of thermistor. If

reading is not 50 K (± 10%), replace thermistor. If reading is within 50 K (±

10%), check wiring between thermistor and electronic control. If good,

replace electronic control.

E4A Program Timeout

Fault

The drying time has exceeded

program time for that cycle.

Press Pause Cancel and SELECT buttons for 6 seconds to exit test modes.

Position cycle selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT

and touch START. Check for anything that would extend dry times such as:

no heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in

closet with solid door, or bad connection in moisture sensor bar circuit or

dirty bars. If dryer operates normally but code returns, replace electronic

control.

E5B Heater Fault (no

heating)

Temperature reading of control

thermistor has not changed in a

certain amount of time.

Position cycle selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT

and touch START. Measure voltage across terminals on relay RL2 (heater

relay) on electronic control. If meter reads 240V on electric models and

120V on gas models, replace electronic control. If meter reads zero, remove

power from dryer. Disconnect wire going to NO terminal on the relay RL2.

Reconnect power and measure voltage drop between terminal COM on

relay RL2 and neutral. If meter reads zero, wire between incoming line and

relay RL2 is open. If meter reads 120V, check the rest of the heater circuit.

E68 Key (button) Struck

Fault

One of the keys (buttons) is stuck

closed (active).

Enter function test mode and perform key (button) test to determine which

button is at fault. Carefully free the and perform the test again. If button is

free but the key struck code still exists, replace electronic control.

E8C Too many trips in a

period of time.

The safety (high limit) thermostat

has tripped too many times within

a certain period of program time.

Check for blocked lint filter, blocked exhaust, air leaks around air duct,

broken blower fan blades, worn or loose drum seals, dryer installed in closet

with solid doors or door seal not correctly seated.

EAF Watch Dog Reset Microcontroller has been reset by

internal Watchdog timer.
Clear code, exit mode and start dryer. If problem persists, replace electronic

Kenmore washer model44082 will not work. It flashed err and LOC. I have unplugged and tried to cancel.it still flashes err and then LOC.


Hello

LOC error code is displayed when the control panel is locked, to unlock it press the OPTION & SELECT button and hold them for 20 seconds. This should reset the control, if it does not then replacing the control is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My washer won't start, it keeps flashing ERR and then the wash-time, and then LOC. My roommate says to fix it before, he held down three buttons, but can't remember which ones. Any idea?


Try the following two buttons: press Options and Select together for 10 seconds (or until the LOC disappears). The pair of buttons held for 10 seconds also sets this control lock.

To find out the error code, turn the Program knob to the start position, Spin Only. Press Start/Pause to start the cycle. Press Cancel to stop the cycle and turn off the LEDs. Press Cancel again and within 5 seconds press and hold the Options and Start/Pause buttons until the LEDs start chasing. Then release the buttons. Turn the Program knob seven clicks clockwise from the Start position. The control will signal the last error code. To clear the error, press and hold Options and Start/Pause for 3 seconds. Then either unplug the washer for 5-8 seconds before plugging it back in. Alternatively, press and hold Options and Start/Pause together for a few seconds until the Wash LEDs appear.

http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/frigidaire-electrolux/12950-frigidaire-atf6000es1-wont-drain.html has a link to the service manual for the listed washer (the link is half-way down the page).

I hope this helps.

Our kenmore supercapicity 3.5 front load washer's door look will not engage. It reads ERR and the door lock light does not go on.


LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked.
This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons.
To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.

Error code DR


Pull the tech sheet out of the dryer ( behind the lower front access panal ). The lights flashing are trying to tell you a fault code.

A copy:

MODEL DIFFERENCES: • Better models have a digital readout display
• Good models do not have a digital readout display
READING ERROR CODES 1. Position cycle selector knob to the 3 O’clock position.
2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.
3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.
4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O’clock position.
On better model dryers, the error code will appear in the digital display. On good models, the five indicator lights of
Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid, and Clean Lint Filter Spin will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code
and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit. Take separate counts of each indicator
light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting
the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The five indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the
START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The five indicator lights and the START indicator light start
flashing at the same time. The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.
Note: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine.
A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15
Example Code E4A: the first digit would be 4 and the second digit would be 10. If this code would appear on a dryer in
the Good model line, the five indicator lights would blink four times and the START indicator light would blink ten times.
Troubleshoot problem by using chart below.
To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button. To clear code, press the Select button.
To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.

3 beeps mean what


If the only thing that happens is three rapid beeps when you select a feature from the console this is usually a symptom of a defective door switch.  The door switch must be closed to complete the circuit from the timer to the heating circuit and drive motor.  If the switch is bad, or the wiring is broken, the dryer will not run.
