Frigidaire Front Load Washer Problems
« on: June 01, 2009, 10:03:22 PM »

My washer fills then beeps once and all of the lights flash once. It won't do anything else after that. I can hear the door lock, it fills just like normal, but when it fills, its done. I turn the selector to drain and spin, and then it will drain and spin after the water is out. The problem is that it won't wash. Also, when it fills then sits, water will leak out of the front door. I need help here! I'm not experienced at all with washer repair so type slowly so I can understand. Haha!

OK I did the test and I held down the buttons like it said, By the way I have the "good model" according to the manual- meaning I don't have a display. The lights flashed once then the pause then they flashed once again. It said that the machine would continue to flash the lights of the test as long as I held the buttons but it didn't. The lights flashed one time then pause then again then it went back to ready to start mode. So to sum up, the 5 light cluster and the start light flashed once when I held down the buttons, a couple of seconds later they all flashed once then it went to regular lights. The start light starts blinking but I counted to 57 before I quit because it is still blinking. I dont know what to do next. I haven't messed the washer in a few days before I tested it so is that the real error code or do I have to try using the machine normally to get a current error reading?
