Hello,

I have a Frigidaire gallery Front loader which is approx 3 years old. It has been working very well, but the last 3 loads, the door lock is "hit and miss" on releasing.

The model number is of course behind the door :confused: and even worse, there is a load of wet clothing inside the machine.

I cannot get the door to release and I am afraid the clothes will sour before I can get help in (I can replace the part myself -IF i can only get the #@$(*& model number) vs pay huge $$$$ to have someone do this for me in the off-hours). Does anyone know how I can manually override this??? Please help.

Thanks tons,
n

Hi,

On the Frigidaire front loaders there isn't a release over ride as with the Whirlpool ones.

You may just have to break it to get the door open, this thread explains a bit more:

We have an Frigidaire affinity washer
13 years old, worked fine for a month
now when we close the door the function lights go on but after ten seconds the door unlocks and won't start.

Hi,

This thread is 15 years old, please start a new thread with your model number. The model number tag is located inside the door.

Thanks!

Jake
