Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
My washing machine is stuck on pause mode. When I push any button or turn the wash cycle knob I get beeps and an error message that flashes PAU & ERR. I have tried all the solutions listed on this site. I have also tried every conceivable combination of buttons to unlock the control panel, unplugged the machine overnight and checked the connections on the door to make sure they are catching properly - all to no avail. Please help!
I fixed this myself and it only took about 5 minutes. The problem is the door latch needs to be reset, which requires unplugging it's three electrical connections. This has to be done inside the washer outer seal, but it is easy to get to. First remove the outer ring that holds the seal on. Next remove only the side of the seal closest to the door latch (again only the outer seal needs to be undone). With this done remove the two screws holding the door latch in place (inside). Remove the latch, unplug the three connectors, plug them back in then reassemble everything. When all is back in place hit "cancel" and it should be good to go.

Aerb, unplug the washer for 30 seconds and plug it back in. With in five seconds press and hold the start/pause and cancel buttons together. As long as these buttons are held in you should get the error code. The code should appear as an E followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters. We need to find out what the actual error is. If this works, post back with the code. Catriver.

Mr PJ Fix IT- I just had to thank you SOOO much for all of your help. We have had this washer for about 4yrs now, it's a piece of junk. I'd have paid for it three times over if I had to call a repair man everytime something went wrong. I swear I get the E20 every six weeks. Tonight it locked up in pause, and you helped us fix it!!! Thanks soooo much for your help!!! You are a life saver!!!!

We have a frigidaire washer ATF6000ESO. Our machine was flashing ERR then PAU then 33 and wouldn't do anything else. A service call determined that is was saying that it was in the pause mode and had 33 minutes left on a "quick cycle"and he determined that the door latch/switch was faulty and that caused the machine to think the door was open. Needless to say a new latch/switch fixed it!
