Hello, Someone has accidentally pressed some buttons and locked you into test mode.
To get out of it you need to press start, the display should go daft. Press start again and the display should settle down. Now press the on/off button and the start button at the same time and hold them down for a few seconds until the display shows d-end or d-off.
Your machine should now work. hope it helps


regards
shaun

Dryer won't spin belt good


Hi,

Your problem says dryer but the category says washer. I wrote this answer thinking the problem was washer. Sorry but I haven't had opportunity to fix my dryer before so can't help you there. If however your problem is the washer (or is anyone else is reading this), please read on... you should find some ideas here.

First you have to check the error code. If your washer does not have a digital display you have to do the following:

1. press any button to "wake up" the machine.
2. press and hold the start and pause buttons.
3. count the flashing lights.
a) first the five lights plus the start light will flash. Count.
b) then the start light will flash. Count.
4. error code is E +# of times in a + total # of flashes in a and b.

Example: flashes start light plus all five lights 4 times, then a pause, then start light alone 3 times. Error code is E47.

There are lots of error codes but E47 and E43 are both door problems. Check out the following document for a lengthy (but understandable) troubleshooting guide. E47 and E43 both say to do Test 9, which is test the resistance of the PTC. If it's not working then you have to replace the door latch assembly (about $80), if it reads around 1500 Ohms you have to replace the control board (about $250).
http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Webster/134542000.pdf

First, let me say that I have no idea how to test the PTC but it can't be hard with a standard multimeter (I will be doing this tomorrow with my Dad).

Second, the removal to access the door latch assembly is stupid easy - check out the following YouTube.

Third, if you have a different error code just look up the test in the manual document above.

Hope that helps!

Washer will not start. The control lock light is illuminated on the washer panel. I unplugged the machine and replugged it in. Washer still displays "control lock" Any suggestions?


Try putting the machine into diagnostic mode. If it won't enter diagnostic mode, then you need to replace the main control board.

DIAGNOSTIC TEST
The washer must be empty and the control must be in theOFF

state before pressing the touch-pad sequence to start the test.

Starting the Test Mode

?Close the door.

?PushCONTROL/ON(if present on this model).

?Select theDRAIN/SPINcycle.

?SelectNO SPINby pressing theSPIN SPEEDtouch-pad.

?PushPREWASH OPTIONfour times within five seconds. (If

PREWASH OPTIONis not present on this model, pressEXTRA

RINSEfour times within five seconds.) C:00 will light up on the

display.

If the Starting procedure fails, push thePAUSE/CANCELtouch-pad,

then repeat the starting procedure.

Test Program Control

In order to advance to the next step of the test procedure, push

PREWASH OPTIONtouch-pad two times. IfPREWASH OPTIONis not

present on this model, pressEXTRA RINSEtwo times

My washer says the control is locked


My dear friend this is an very common problem people do face with.

Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately three seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off.

Diagnostic Test:
The diagnostic test is performed by using the Program Knob. To START THE TEST:
• On non-digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.
• On digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Touch Up. (NOTE: If the model has a timer dial that
can be rotated 360°, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.
• Press Pause Cancel to turn off LEDs.
• Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Pause Cancel buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then
release buttons.
