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.
My machine appears to be washing and draining properly, but does not spin, at the end of the program, it shuts off with approximately 7 minutes left on the program. I have replaced the motor control board and it is still the same. What do you recomend ?
Answer Hello Pedro,
You would want to check your door lock assembly. When the unit is stopping at 7 minutes it is an indication that unit cannot go into a spin which most likely cause is the control not showing the latch being locked. Check wiring and connections at the lock latch 131763202.
