Re: new frigidaire washer (affinity)
Kimberely, The err 47 means that the control board is not sensing the door lock. First try unplugging the machine for 1 minute and see if it comes back to normal. If it doesn't put it into the door lock test, with the door closed, by doing the following: Turn the program knob to drain spin. Press pause cancel to turn off the LEDs. Within 5 seconds, press and hold the option and pause cancel buttons until the LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release the buttons. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Turn the program knob 4 clicks from the start position clockwise, the door lock solenoid will activate. The door should be locked. Turn the knob one more click clockwise and it should unlock. You can toggle back and forth to test it. If the door lock is working and you are still getting this code, then its a control board problem. You should call for factory service. If you have any more questions, you can email me at [email protected] Catriver...post back.

'power strip'!! You can't run a washing machine from a power strip! It pulls far to many amps. Plug into a wall socket on its own.
PAU Error. The PAU, or pause, error usually means that the washing machine cycle was interrupted and was not restarted properly. If you try to modify the cycle or start a new one before the first cycle is complete, the PAU error will appear on the display.
This was exactly what was wrong with my washer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stupid Easy Fix! I would recommend leaving it unplugged until you are ready to undo the plug for the door lock. This was a perfect solution!!
