Hello, welcome to FixYa

Based on the info you provided, specifically the E41 error, It sounds like the unit is detecting an unlocked door, loose wire, or the control itself is bad. (E41= Shorted or open. Defective door lock assembly.Around 1500Ohms. Defective control board.)

The PAU simply indicates the control thinks it has been paused...that may be just a side affect of the door lock assembly.

Here's how to check...

**Unplug the unit from the wall first...safety first**

Remove the door lock assembly and measure the resistance of the PTC. Should get a reading of around 1500ohms.


Attached here is a great tutorial for accessing the assembly for testing and replacing.

Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if anything is not clear.

Thank's again for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

E41 - Control board thinks the door switch is open.

- In the J2 plug on the control, measure voltage from the black wire to ground with power on.
- 0 volts. Check the door strike. If good, replace the door switch assembly.
- 120 volts. Replace the control board.

    About PAU error, this
    is a strong indication and confirmation of Main control board failure. Essentially, the
    board is having problems communicating with the other corresponding
    units in the washer. The necessary actions will be to replace the Main
    Electronic control board. The part number for your new control will be
    137007000. I have also included a service manual for this unit, which
    will guide you through the replacement procedure. Click here to access the service manual.

    The
    removal process for the electronic control assembly will be located on
    page 74 of the manual provided. Start on page 73, under "RELEASING THE
    CONSOLE" and work your way through page 74. Those instructions will help
    with the removal process of the control board.

    In E41 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.

I have a Frigidaire front load washer #ATF6000SF1 and need to reset the PAU and E41 error code. I cannot get the unit into diagnostic mode to accomplish this. How can I reset this code?


I appreciate your post, Josh Orenstein!
From my understanding your Frigidaire washer is displaying "PAU" and "E41". "PAU" normally displays when there is an interruption to the cycle and "E41" means the main control board thinks the door switch is open. Either code can display due to a faulty door latch assembly, door strike, or main control board. You can attempt to perform a factory reset by holding down the Start/Pause button and Select button until a signal sounds. Also review the door latch and strike to see if there is any visible damage that could cause a short within the components. If there is no visible damage you may want to consult with a technician for proper diagnosis and repair of your washer. Hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

ATF8000FS1 washer is stuck in pause. Any suggestions?


Hi friend, thanks for your inquiry!

If your washer continues to display an error code of "PAU" it could be an issue with your door lock but if the door strike is not sitting properly within the latch your washer will continue to provide the error code "PAU". Additionally, if your control panel is registering that the door is closed you may continue to experience the "PAU" code. I would recommend having a professional come and properly diagnosis your washer to prevent any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful. -OOS

Hey friend, thanks for your inquiry!

I see off your post your Frigidaire washer is showing a "PAU 12" code. Typically "PAU" stands for pause which means the cycle has been interrupted. I would open and close the door to assure that there is a proper connection between the door strike and door latch. If you check that and still receive the "PAU" I would recommend a reset, which can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Code pau 41


Hello J, thank you for allowing me to assist you again!

If you are receiving an error code E41, your loading door may be ajar. Double-check to ensure that it is closed. If it is secure, reset the power to your appliance for about 30 seconds. You can do this by unplugging the unit or flipping your circuit breaker into the off position. If the error persists, it could either be the door switch assembly or your unit's main control board. In that case, a certified technician would generally replace the faulty part after proper diagnosis.

E41 Error + PAU and I've tried everything...I think?


Hi Kimberly - If you are receiving an error code E41, it typically indicates that the loading door may be ajar. Double-check to ensure that it is securely closing. If it is secure, and since the unit was unplug for several hours, but the issue continues, then the door switch assembly or your unit's main control board is generally the primary issue. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.
