I had this same problem. I replaced the computer and the relay boards without luck. I found it was the FILL VALVES! Apparently when the washer changes cycles it expects water to fill the tub to a certain level. If the valves are not opening and water not filling the tub will cause the computer to just wait and wait and wait and wont advance to the next cycle.

Error code E58


If you have a front-load washer that was manufactured by Frigidaire, the E58 error indicates high current on the motor. This could mean that the motor is bad, the bearings that the tub spins on are bad, or a problem with the speed control board. To test this, you'll need to access the motor and tub area of the washer. Unplug the power before opening the washer. Take the belt off the motor pulley and check if it spins freely. If it doesn't, then replace the drive motor. If it does spin freely, check if the large pulley on the tub spins freely. If that doesn't rotate, you'll need to replace the outer tub and spin basket in order to replace the failed bearings. If the pulley rotates easily, you'll need to check the motor windings. If the resistance is between 4-6 Ohms, the speed control board is probably faulty. If the resistance is not in the correct range, the motor is bad and needs to be replaced.

A Frigidaire washer technical data sheet is available here: http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/webster/134542000.pdf .

If your washer is under warranty, contact the manufacturer. If you add a comment with the model number of your washer, I may be able to provide a source for the parts.

I hope this helps.

How can I tell whether to replace motor, motor controller or main control board on my frigidaire affinity washer ( ATF7000FS1 ) after error code E56? Test 9 gives motor winding resistance of 7.2, 7.2 and...


Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off the information from your manufacturer "E56" stands for high motor current. Looking up information for your technical data sheet it states that you need to perform test 9:

1. Remove the belt from the motor and spin the motor pulley.
Does the motor spin free? No, replace the motor. Yes, go to step (3).
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 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.

Based off that information you would need to replace your motor. If you feel unsure about repairs I would recommend reaching out to a professional for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this helps. -Matt

High current issue - 1. Remove the belt from the motor and spin the motor pulley. Does the motor spin free? No, replace the motor. Yes, go to step (3). 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 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.

Frigidaire affinity washer error 58


High motor current is recognized in the unit:

1. Remove the belt from the motor and spin the motor pulley. Does the motor spin free? No, replace the motor. Yes, go to step (3). 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 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.

Everything works but will not spinfast enough to spin the water out. It spins very slow if it spins at all.


Either the belt needs replacing or the high speed windings of the motor are failing. You should have about 1 ohm on each of the winding leads. This is the plug on the motor. Refer to the tech sheet or wiring diagram for what wires are for low speed and what one is for high speed. It is usually the blue or yellow for high speed. Check from the common (white wire) to each of the other terminals ( blue or yellow) and if it is more than 1 ohm the motor will need to be replaced. If it is good the transmission is likely bad.

He 3t error code f6,washer will not spin,door will not open


"f6" error code means that there a miss communication between mcu(motor speed control board) and ccu(central control unit). i recommend you to ohm out the motor. most likely its your motor speed control located at the bottom left of the washer good luck. replace the motor speed control board and you should be all set to go.

Keep getting F than 7


The central control unit has detected a short in the motor contol unit. If a failure occurs during the high speed spin the door will be locked after 3 minutes.

Potential causes
1.Check the wire harness connections between the drive motor and the motor control unit and between the motor control unit and the central control unit.
2.Check the MCU... The mcu motor connector has 5 pins. pin 1 is at the top then 2345 going down
Pin 1 to 2 = 6 ohms
pin 1 to 3 = 6 ohms
pin 2 to 3 = 6 ohms
3.Check the Drive Motor
pin 1 to 2 = 6 ohms
pin 2 to 3 = 6 ohms
pin 1 to 3 = 6 ohms
4.Check the wire Harness

Kenmore Elite F25?>


F25 = DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR
mostly likely need to replace speed control board

If the control is unable to properly detect motor speed, the machine shuts down.
If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door unlocks after 3 Minutes.

Possible Causes/Procedure

1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and the power cord are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check drive motor tachometer resistance. It should be approx. 115 ohms.
4. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations
