Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

On starting washer, terrible rat-tat-tat nose, door lock not engaging....

Washer was working fine, then when going to re-start a load, start was pressed, but only the noise happened. no warning code, no door lock engaged.

i pressed cancel, as it seems that nothing was going to happen, door remained unlocked.

by feel, the vibration of the noise was coming from the bottom panel-

HELP?!

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.
