I have a Frigidaire Affinity dryer that will not work.
It is giving me the code LOC.
Can anyone tell me what is wrong?
The LOC indicates that the control panel settings are locked. Press the SELECT and OPTION button simultaneously to toggle this 'feature' on or off. Hope this helps.

I have pressed options and select simultaneously and it is still locked.
The option for on or off never comes up.
Is there something I need to do after I press these two buttons?
nope, unfortunately that should be how you unlock the child lock on your unit---you can check your manual to be 100% sure. But if the control panel won't unlock the child safety feature, you need to order and replace the main control board to correct the issue.

I'm not sure if you got my last reply.
I need to know if this can be done by the
average handy man or do I need to hire an expert?
sorry, I didn't get that reply. But this can definitely be done by yourself if you'd like. Just remove the top panel first then the control panel and be sure to unplug the unit. There are just 2 screws holding the top panel on near the back.
