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.
how do you know if its your motor or your speed control board our washer wont turn at all it drain n fills up with water it just dont wash or spin it says E59 what could it be!
The E59 error code indicates that there is no tacho signal for 3 seconds. You will want to do the following:
1. Remove the belt from the motor and spin the motor pulley.
Does the motor spin free? No, replace the motor. Yes, go to
2. Spin the tub pulley. Does the tub spin free? No, check the tub
bearings. Yes, go to step (3).
3. Disconnect the plug from the drive motor and measure the
resistance between pins 4 and 5 in the motor. If the meter
reads other than between 105 and 130 ohms, replace the
motor. If the reading is between 105 and 130 ohms, go to step
4. Disconnect the plug from the motor and measure the resistance
of the windings (pin 1 to 2, pin 1 to 3, pin 2 to 3). All readings
should be between 4 and 6 ohms. If readings are correct,
replace the Speed Control Board. If readings are incorrect,
replace the motor.
The drum will rotate counter clockwise but only moves slightly clockwise then stops, making a clunking noise. The wash load will not complete. What part needs to be replaced?
Answer Hello SDBob,
You will want to check the shaft of the inner basket to make sure that is not squared off, check pulley to make sure it is good. If these check ok it would more than likely be the speed control board.
