I found it! If you are looking at the drawer from the back the magnet sits in the pocket in the far left. The plastic extends out like a clip (to hold the magnet in place). You depress that when placing the magnet in.

I turn on my maching and the door locks, but nothing else happen

I had the same problem within my 1 year warranty. I called the company and they sent out a repairman. Apparently, there is a magnet in the drawer that lets the machine know the drawer is closed and it is safe to start the cycle. If the magnet isn't there the machine doesn't think the drawer is closed and won't start. The repairman simply had to replace the magnet and the washer started after that.

Washer - soap dispenser door - Magnet fell out... where does it go

I had the same problem. If you turn the dispenser so that the front faces away from you, look on the left side in the front. half way up there is a space with what looks like a plastic clip that might hold the dispenser to the front bezel. This actually holds the magnet, which can be installed without taking the dispenser apart. Be sure to install (pop in) the magnet vertically so that the long part of the magnet sits next to the right side of the dispenser opening (when viewed from the front) when the drawer is closed.

Frigidaire + ddo error code

Excellent solution. I had a similar problem. The trick is to figure out where to put the magnet. I had a hard time with that.

For those like me who might have difficulty finding the spot for the magnet, it goes on the right hand side of the detergent door. The easiest way to do it is to pull the detergent door all the way out of the machine and look at it such that the back of the door is facing you. The magnet fits vertically in a slot on the left side as you are looking at the door (right side of the doorwhen inserted in the machine) in the white plastic. It sits vertically and is held by a small latch. This is not obvious at all...

Magnet

if it's a small rectangular magnet that appears, in our case, fell out, when you add detergent, softener, etc...the magnet goes on the right hand bottom corner of the drawer face, straight up and down, not sideways. this is evidently some type of sensor allowing the washer to start. we had an error code of "ddo" when the magnet fell out.
