Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
okay , you need to replace the lock assembly. however since this is new and still under warranty I would call and have frigidaire replace it. don't mention that you ran this with the shipping bolts in thats all. they may not cover it if you do. the locks around $70.00 so you should call for warranty service. hope this helps, thanks, Bryan

same door lock as affinity dryer?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
I couldn't tell you without the dryer model #. I don't believe the dryer has the same lock assembly though. why do you ask ? the thing with warranty is if you take this apart and work on it they will void your warranty.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
not the same switches any way,is loc trouble code for bad switch? and your right got to keep my hands off of it i m one of those guys who has to take everything apart if loc is trouble code thanks for your help
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
yes loc is a code for a bad door lock , the excessive vibration caused the door lock to fail. save yourself the money and call for warranty service. :) thanks and have a great day, Bryan
