Have a fairly new frigidaire washer and the other day it started beeping so i went and unplugged hoping to reset it. Now all it does is show 18h PAU on the display and if you try anything it just says err. Anyone experience this before. Any input would be appreciated
thanx
Steve

• Turn the program knob clockwise 7 clicks from the Start Position. The control will signal the last error code.

• Exit Diagnostic Mode to return the washer to normal operation.
a ) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord
OR
b ) Turn the program knob clockwise 2 or 3 clicks after the Start Position.
Press Options and Start/Pause buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle LEDs appear.

I tried all of your instructions but the knob to turn to different settings doesnt do anything can spin it around and around but it is stuck on Heavy and if i push the buttons it is unresponsive other than the err I get on the display.

If the only thing that comes up on the display is PAU and every time you push any buttons it shows ERR and is the same after being unplugged you have a bad main control board.

One other thing, make sure it's not set to child lock, I'm pretty sure it's not - I think if it were in the child lock mode the display would show LOC when any button is pushed.
