Complaint that door not locking, thus machine dead. Arrive at residence, not the best housekeeping. Machine is 4 years old & looks 12, door is rusting like crazy. Stacked unit crammed in between overstuffed cabinet & huge refer. Looks like hours job just to get room to work on unit. Not what I want to do. But, I attack anyway. Go in from front, pull boot, get door latch out. Not sure how to test unplugged from harness, have no tech sheet anyway knowing what to ohm. Have continuity with some resistance between the black do hickey with 2 terminals. The other 4 terminals have no continuity no made which combination I use (more than likely have continuity with latch locked.
None-the-less reinstall plug in connections after checking for corrosion on terminal ends. Close door, push start, Click it locks, starts to fill. I cycle on off several times. Works like it suppose to. South Texas coastal weather plays heck with electronics.
Question: Going to replace latch assembly. RC suggests replacing wiring harness which is twice the cost of latch. I would have to pull top dryer & everything else down plus move some heavy stuff to replace harness. What are your comments every one who has replace frigidaire front load door latches? I am also going to rebuild door per customers instruction. Customer does not want to purchase new stack-able cause this one works fine according to her. I would like to keep the repairs somewhat reasonable in price without shortchanging myself. Is the harness necessary or would I be compromising the warranty.
