I have Fridgidaire front load washer, all still works but will not spin, I have removed motor control board, how do I determine if board is still working. part # is 134058400
Answer Hello Andrew. If the front load washer works, but will not spin, you may have a bad door lock assembly on the unit and will need to replace it. If there is power coming from the board to the motor, then the board is fine. If the lock is bad, these units will not spin.
our washer is kenmore front loader....washer will fill up but not advance to next cycle...have to manual advance...will not kick on motor to spin...pump is fine...motor is fine..dont know if this is bad speed control...or motor control switch
Answer Paul, What about a bad timer ? Here's a basic check "Set the timer to the start of the heavy wash cycle. Allow the washer to operate for 3 minutes. Then measure the voltage drop between pin 5 of the ten pin plug on the spped control board and pin 5 of the six pin plug on the speed control board. If you have a reading of 120 VAC you have a defective speed control board 134149220. If the voltage reading is 0 VAC, you have a defective timer 134330900 " Good Luck
I noticed my clothes were still wet after washer through. Tried out and tub not spinning to wash or fast spin. Pump clear and door switch working. Can fake out door switch and put timer knob to were drum should move back and forth for fluffing after high speed spin. If I assist the drum a little it will spin clockwise and then if I assist it it will spin counterclockwise, but not on its own. I think its a bad board (triac?)
Answer Hi Kirby. Use a volt/ohm meter part #@ TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. The door latch may be closed and allow tumbling only, not a full speed spin. If the bi metal contact inside the door latch does not tightly close then it is not allowing the full high speed spin on purpose for a safety issue. Door latch is part # 131763202. It will be advantageous to find the supplied tech sheet inside the cabinet to aid you in the diagnosis. It allows you to put the unit in a diagnostic mode which brings up fault codes and tells you which circuit needs assistance. If you double check the wiring harness connections from the main control board to the speed controller part # 134149220 and back to the motor part # 134869400. Use the ohms scale on the meter to insure the motor windings are within technical spec's and not shorted one by one to motor frame and chassis. Thank You.
What is correct metal oxide varistor do I re install in my Frigidaire wash machines speed control circuit board. Where marked MOV1 on circuit board located in front of ceramic 250 volt fuse, at the front of circuit board. Please help me find correct mov do I need to install in this part number 134149220 please please please help me! Thank you so much for your time.
Answer Hi Jeff. Unfortunately the control board manufacturer does not supply us with the part # for that particular varistor size. Which as you know is crucial for the board protection. The down to nuts and bolts question is why did the varistor blow ? This is the same reason as to why the manufactures solder a non replaceable board fuse. There is an underlying cause and you would be just replacing the end result. Use a volt/ohm meter part #@ TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. Find the service tech sheet inside the unit top ,side or in the front bottom cover under the door. It will allow you to put the unit in a field service diagnostic mode and bring up a fault code of the effected circuits. It explains the reasons and what to do . Like ohming the motor windings and testing them individually to ground. It will give you the ohm values. This way you can be certain of only needing the correct part. Sorry but the motor controller is part # 134149220. Make sure the connections are all tight. Thank You.
Where is the fuse located?
Answer Hello John. Sorry, but there is no fuse located on this model of washer. If there is power to the timer, and the timer does not work, you will need to replace the timer 137394200. Hope this helps.
