Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Frigidaire FFLE2022MW washer dryer combo beeps twice and stops during all washing cycles after it fills with water and lid is still locked. Does anyone know how to correct this? Thanks


Thank you for your inquiry, Criss Ard!

From my understanding you are having issues with your Frigidaire laundry center not starting a cycle. You stated that the washer fills with water then locks. It sounds like your timer is not advancing and that could be due to a faulty timer or wiring harness. You may want to perform a reset on your laundry center and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If this troubleshooting step does not help resolve your issue you may want to consult with a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

My dryer is locked and I have a tub full of wet clothes. Sorry, can't find the manual how to fix.


If it's your washer that is locked, the manual suggests you press the START/PAUSE/UNLOCK button. It says the lid will unlock once the washer movement stops and it might take several minutes if it was spinning at a high speed. You can resume the cycle by pushing the Start/pause/unlock button again.
I really hope this is the answer you need. There is nothing more frustrating than a load of wet laundry. If this helps, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice. Thanks and good luck!

OSD Unlock : Press and hold the [1] and [▼] buttons again for 5 seconds. The message “OSD UNLOCK” will then display briefly, indicating that the OSD image settings are now unlocked.

You will find that and other information in the manual located here. The above information is found on page 7.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks
