How to Reset Buttons on a Frigidaire Frontload Washer

Frigidaire new-style front-loading washing machines are digital units, unlike their analog top-loading counterparts. As such, it is possible for the electronic control board to freeze, which makes the machine unresponsive to user input. If the washing machine is unresponsive, you need not worry, as resetting the control board unfreezes the machine, allowing you to resume laundering your garments.

Step 1

Pull the washer away from the wall so that the power cord is accessible, or locate the washer breaker in your home's service panel.

Step 2

Unplug the washer from the wall outlet, or turn off the breaker.

Step 3

Allow the power to remain off for at least 30 seconds, and then restore power to the washer.

Step 4

Move the washer back into position, if applicable.
