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.
Press any button on the display panel.
Wait five seconds and then press and hold the "Start/Pause" button and the "Cancel" button at the same time.
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.
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.
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.
