Do you have a link on how to run the diagnostics for this washer? I believe it is the motor.
Answer Hello Brian. Sorry, Kenmore does not offer that information. If you look inside the cabinet of the unit, you should be able to locate the tech sheet to help you test the unit.
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
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.
