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.
I just replaced the timer on our washer. At this point, it washes but the entire cycle takes a long time. It fills with water, then stops, washes a little, then stops again, washes more, then stops, rinses, then stops, spins, then stops. It seems to be doing everything at normal speed, just pausing between. It eventually finishes a load but it takes a couple of hours. Does this sound like it needs a new speed controller?
Answer Hello Corrine. If the speed of the washer is in the slow stage, and it does not change on any cycle, you will need to replace the speed controller 134149220. Hope this helps.
I have a front loading Frigidaire model FWTR647GHS0 that suddenly quit tumbling in all cycles. Searching online, I found a recommendation to check the fuse in the Speed Control Panel. Mine was burned out, so I bought a replacement and installed it. Immediately after trying to start a wash cycle, the fuse burned out. That is when I discovered the Technical Data Sheet envelope taped to the inside of the cabinet. I went through all of the steps for diagnosing a motor not running, and here are the results:
1) Good Power
2) Good Door Switch
3) Good Voltage 120Vac
4) Pin 1-pin 5 120 Vac
Pin 2-pin 5 120 Vac
Pin 6-pin 5 44.8 Vac
Pin 10-pin 5 120 Vac
I wasn't sure about where to find the timer contacts, or the exact way I was supposed to test them, but I did notice on the WiringDiagram that 1C, 3C, 5C, and 7C are all connected to the YEL/BLK wire on the WHITE timer plug. So I inserted my volt meter contacts intothe back of the white plug to do the timer contact tests.
ELECTRICAL POWER DISCONNECTED / TIMER SWITCH PULLED OUT
1C YEL/BLK-1B BLUE Continuity
3C YEL/BLK-3B PINK/BLK Continuity
5C YEL/BLK-5B WHT/RED Open
7C YEL/BLK-7B BRN Continuity
ELECTRICAL POWER CONNECTED / TIMER SWITCH PULLED OUT
1C-1B .001 Vac
3C-3B .001 Vac
5C-5B 33.4 Vac
7C-7B .001 Vac
5) Fuse bad
6) Pin 1-pin 2 1.397 Meg Ohms
Pin 2-pin 3 1.414 Meg Ohms
Pin 3-pin 1 3.15 Meg Ohms
These are all supposed to be 3 Meg Ohms +/- 10%
7) Pin 1-pin 2 2.6 Ohms
Pin 2-pin 3 2.6 Ohms
Pin 3-pin 1 2.6 Ohms
These are all supposed to be 2.6 Ohms +/- 7%
I'm quite sure I wouldn't have both the Speed Control Board and the Timer go bad at the same time, but I'm not sure which is causing the problem, and what is causing the fuse to burn out.
I want to make sure I purchase the correct part the first time.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Answer Hello Clean1owner. You will need to test the motor and see if it is good. Unplug the connection to the motor and test pins 4 and 5. You should read between 105 & 130 ohms. If it is outside these readings, you will need to replace the motor 134869400. If the motor is good, and you have replaced the speed controler, you will need to replace the timer. Hope this helps.
