Hello, I have a front load Fridgidaire washer FTFB4000FSO. It stopped running mid cycle. If you try to turn it back on it runs for about 30 seconds and then turns back off. I checked for a code and came up with E55. I cleaned out the filter for the pump, and am still having the same problem. Thanks for any help you can give.
The E55 indicates a motor overheating. You will want to pull the belt off the motor pulley and check to see if the motor pulley spins freely. If the motor pulley spins freely then do a resistance check on the motor pins. Check 1 to 2, 1 to 3 and 2 to 3 and they should all measure 4 to 6 ohms. You will also want to check to see if the tub pulley spins freely. If the tub pulley and motor pulley spin freely and the resistance checks ok then replace the speed control board 134743500. If the tub pulley does not spin freely then you will need to replace the rear outer tub 134509510 because the bearings are bad. If the motor pulley does not spin freely then replace the motor and if the motor pulley does spin freely and the motor does not read proper resistance then replace the motor 137043000.
