The Frigidaire Affinity is a front-loading clothes washing machine that comes in several colors and sizes and has many features, including a steam clean cycle, specialty wash cycles, a vibration control system, sanitizing option, stain pre-treat feature and specific allergen cycles. If a problem occurs with the washing machine, an error code may be displayed on the control panel. If the error code "DR" appears, there are a few steps to clear the error.


Step 1

Press any button on the display panel.

Step 2

Wait five seconds and then press and hold the "Start/Pause" button and the "Cancel" button at the same time.

Step 3

Open and shut the door. A "DR" error code indicates that there is a problem with the door, most likely that it has not shut properly. Check to make sure there are no clothes or other items caught in the door.

Step 4

Open the door and gently wiggle the door latch if the door does not click shut. Clean it with a damp cloth to remove excess dirt or debris that may prevent the door from latching into position.

Step 5

Close the door and re-select a new wash cycle and "Start." If the error code appears again, contact Frigidaire for assistance, as a new door latch may be necessary.
