Customer Question
I have a Frigidaire...

I have a Frigidaire affinity. When I start it I hear a click and then it goes to pause.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

2012 model number fafs4174nw

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. Initially it showed a EF2 error and E41. The e41 disappeared after I switched out the door lock

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

All of this happened after my husband and I switched out the boot mid cycle because water was leaking on the floor

The main motor control board likely got water on it and is shorted out and will need to be replaced. If you had water below the unit this can easily be damaged very quickly resulting in the issue you are having. It is an extremely common failure. Here is a link to the board, change this out and you should be good to go again. You may also want to double check all wires to the door lock and make sure nothing has come off or is not connected properly.

That is the main harness plug it only can line up one way. Look at the pins on it and the flat spots and line it up with the shape on the other end and put them together.

Just line up the harness and get it to slide in, find the only matching female pin on the other socket that does not have a pin on the other side. You should be able to quickly look and see which one does not and it is likely black on the other side as well.
