Unplug the appliance and take the top off.

Locate the pressure switch and take the thin tube off of it. (There may be two pressure switches, if there is, take both tubes off, block one with your thumb).

Blow as hard as you can down the tube to try and clear any restriction.

Refit the tube(s) and try the machine again.

If it works, you'll need to run some maintenance washes (boil washes without detergent or clothes) to try and disolve the build up of gunk and undisolved soap.

Look for the thin tubes that attach to the pressure switches, you may have 1 or 2 of them on your appliance. They are at the top, possibly on the right hand side although different factories put them in different places.

Just disconnect the tubes at the pressure switch ends, then blow down into the tube and pressure chamber.

Don't forget, disconnect both tubes, block one with your thumb and blow down the other.

E38 error code


Hi Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Typically an error code E38 on your Frigidaire washer could mean a few things:
First see if the air trap is clogged. If it is, that is probably the most likely issue.

If it is not clogged, it could either be the main control board, the water valve assembly or the pressure sensor switch.

To make sure it is not a false error code, reset the power to your appliance by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker for about 30 seconds.

If the error code continues to display, I would strongly recommend contacting a professional to make the necessary repairs. Unfortunately, most electronic parts cannot be returned so it is always a good idea to get the appropriate diagnosis prior to making any unnecessary part replacements.

Best regards! - Z
