Hi Walt, if I recall correctly there were a couple of screws behind the soap compartment that allowed me to take the control panel off. 2 more screws in top back and the top of the washer can be slid forward and removed. Access to switch was through the top. Hope this helps.

Door locked model he 2t

F22 error code means that the door lock mechanism is not functioning and the wiring has probably come loose. Open the top (2 screws in back) and you'll probably find (as we have now 3 times) that the wires and door lock mechanism have come loose (no wonder with the vibrations of the spinning drum!). Plug it back in yourself and save the annoying repair bill! Make sure to unplug the washer before you attempt it...

Wont't start dl f on display

HI. this is a Door lock error. Check the following to address this issue. Normally you will need to replace the door lock assembly in this case but, it is not uncommon for it to be just a simple loose wire harness as well.

Potential Causes

• Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
• Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
• Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

Replace failed component.

Machine just stops. A little shake gets it going again for a brief time then it stops again. Neptune model MAH6700AWW

You probably have a loose connection. My guess would be the door switch, since that's probably where I'd bump it to get it going again. The fix is easy: gain access to the back side of the switch, and make sure that the wires are making good connection. Also, check that the latch and lock don't have anything loose, may be it's something that you ccan tighten without going into the machine to wiggle wires. Check for the loose fittings first, tighten up what you can with the door open.
Best regards, --W/D--

Front loader washing machine door wont lock to begin cycle?

you might have a defective door switch. this is the part that locks the door and sends a signal to the processor to say that the door is already closed.

check also the wires that goes to this door switch. it could just be loose connection.

Door lock light

I just had the same problem. The door lock wires have clips so unless you uncliped them that would not be the problem. It should be listed in the reset error code section, but I would suggest performing the system error check first before clearing the error.
Step 1 go to
Step 2 click on CUSTOMER SERVICE on top of page
Step 3 go to PRODUCT MANUALS and click on DOWNLOADS
Step 4 type in MODEL NUMBER and click on search
Step 5 your error code information is in the TECH DATA file there you can perform a full system check PLEASE READ ALL WARNINGS POSTED
Step 6 save all PDF files to a new folder name it FRIGIDARE for easy availbility.
Thank you and good luck.

Front load washer doesn't turn itself on when door closed and cycle picked

First check the door if it is still properly aligned try to tightened first the two screw of the door sometimes it is loose align it, reset your machine, if it is still the same, now take a look on the rubber gasket attached to the shell cabinet, there is a big plastic clamp or a rounded wire with spring on the other end it is the gasket lock, pull it u can return it by reinserting it back, wire lock-just stretch it and put it back,after doing that-pull the gasket slowly,to your right the door lock is located, check if it is misaligned-difinitely no problem with your door lock it is a matter of alignment - happy washing
