How to fix the locking mechanism on a Frigidaire Affinity washing machine?

To fix the locking mechanism on a Frigidaire Affinity washing machine, you can try the following steps:
  • Ensure the washer is unplugged or disconnected from the power source for safety.
  • Examine the door latch or locking mechanism for any visible damage, such as broken parts or misalignment. If any components are damaged, they may need to be replaced.
  • Clean the latch and the surrounding area to remove any debris or buildup that may interfere with the locking mechanism.
  • Check the door strike plate, which the latch hooks onto when the door is closed. Ensure it is properly aligned and securely attached. Adjust or replace the strike plate if necessary.
  • Plug the washing machine back in and test the locking mechanism by closing the door. If the issue persists, it is recommended to contact Frigidaire customer support or schedule a service appointment with a qualified technician for further assistance or to replace the locking mechanism if needed.
