Because our machine was new and covered under warranty, we had a maintenance person come out three times for this issue, but the only solution he could provide was to use less soap. Apparently, too much soap disrupts a sensor. So, if you let the machine run without adding any more soap, it will (theoretically) fix the problem. And this solution did work, to a certain extent.
Even though I started using much less soap, the problem is still persisting. For awhile, I was successfully able to fix it by running a few cycles without soap. Now, however, it just won’t work. Maybe others will have more success with this solution than we did.
At this point, the washer is no longer cover under warranty and our best solution is to buy anything but a Frigidaire or related Electrolux product.

Install the door lock/switch assembly with the door switch harness disconnected but "jumped". Jump a wire between the wire harness terminals and if the error code (E41) stops appearing when the machine is started, the door lock/switch assembly is indeed faulty and needs to be replaced.
Check the continuity of the door switch harness connecting the switch and terminal J2 of of the control board if the error code (E41) still appears every time the machine is started after putting a jumper wire between the door switch harness terminals.
Make sure the connectors are clean and snugly connected to both. Replace the wire harness if you are skeptical about its condition. Disconnecting the door switch wire harness (J2) from the control board and putting a jumper wire between the leads of terminal J2 on the control board will directly confirm the condition of the wire harness and the board itself. The wire harness is the problem and must be replaced if the error code E41 stops appearing. On the other hand, consider replacing the control board if the error code still flashes even when the leads of terminal J2 on the board is shorted ("jumped").

I appreciate your post, Trent!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is displaying an error code of E41 and the door is locked and will not open. An E41 error code means that your main control board thinks the door is open. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by disconnecting power from your washer for at least ten minutes. If that does not help correct your issue it could be a possible problem with your door lock assembly, control panel, or wiring harness. You may need to seek assistance from a professional technician to avoid unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful to you. -Matt

Hello phrainer3 - Error code E41 indicates that the main control board thinks the door switch is open. Contact a professional to check the continuity between the pins in the plug and door strike. The unit either has a defective door switch assembly or main control board.
