Received error code E59. Drum doesn't turn but I can hear the sounds of it trying. Drum doesn't move when I try to manually move it.
Answer Hello Jason. The E59 error code indicates that there was no tach signal for 3 seconds. You will want to access the back of the unit. Remove the belt from the motor. Spin the motor pulley and if it does not spin freely then replace motor. Spin the tub pulley. If it does not spin freely check the tub bearing. If both check ok then disconnect the plug from the drive motor and measure resistance between pins 4 and 5 in the motor. If the meter reads other than between 105 and 130 ohms, replace motor. Measure resistance of the motor windings (pin 1 to 2, pin 1 to 3, and pin 2 to 3). All readings should be between 4 and 6 ohms. If readings are correct then replace speed control board. If incorrect then replace the motor. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
