Hello Daniel Huntley - Typically error code E59 indicates that that washer is not detecting a tacho signal for about three seconds. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. Certified technicia will need to remove the belt from the motor, spin the motor pulley, diagnose the speed control board and etc.

E59 No tacho signal for 3 seconds in other words sounds like a bad motor
Diagnostic Test:
The diagnostic test is performed by using the Program Knob. To START THE TEST:
? On non-digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.
? On digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Touch Up. (NOTE: If the model has a timer dial that can be rotated 360?, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.
? Press Pause Cancel to turn off LEDs.
? Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Pause Cancel buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release buttons.
1. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LEDs in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality.
2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment.
3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment.
4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment.
5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will activate.
6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened.
7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble.
8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and spin (leakage test).
9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. The drain pump and door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin. SAFETY WARNING: If power is removed during this test, the door can be opened. To prevent injury, DO NOT put your hands inside when the tub is rotating.
10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code.
Exiting Diagnostic Mode
There are two options for exiting the Diagnostic Test mode and returning the washer to normal operation:
a) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord OR
b) Turn the program knob clockwise 2 or 3 clicks after the Start Position. Press Options and Pause Cancel buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle LEDs appear. If a situation arises where you cannot exit the Diagnostic mode as described above and the bank of 5 LED?s on the right end remain ON regardless of Program Knob position, a combination of pushed buttons may have caused the control to enter a special factory test mode. Disconnect power to reset the control to return washer to normal operation is this occurs.
To clear latest stored error code:
Place the control into Diagnostic test Mode.
? Turn the program knob clockwise 9 clicks from the Start Position. The control will signal the last error code.
? Press and hold the Options and Pause Cancel buttons for 3 seconds. The code will be cleared.
? Exit Diagnostic Mode to return the washer to normal operation.

Yes, the original issue was the control from the beginning. the control is damaged and it cannot register the latch at this point. this is necessary and , it will fix the issue.

SOURCE: Err 57 - No response

sorry for the delayed response, PC problems. Anyway, it could be 1 of 3 boards. the control board, interface board, or the control panel. Visually inspect them and see if anything looks blown. Most of the time it is the control board. However, without actually seeing it it is an educated guess.

SOURCE: What does error code E59 means on a Frigidaire

Hiya
if you have pressed any of the buttons during a wash cycle then you will be given an error message on the display to change the wash options once started you must 1st pause the wash before making any changes, this i think would be the main reason for such an error to appear however you can download your operaters manual at http://www.frigidaire.com/manuals
if you do not already have it & from there you may be able to have a read & work out why you received this message alternativly from the site you will get a link to a contact us section where you may be abal to ring the customer services & then have the assistant check the code for you..

Hope this helps

Error code 57


Good Morning Aicia, regrettably, an error code E57 could mean a number of issues, but primarily that the motor is overheating or a higher-than-usual motor current caused by other issues. Typically, an experienced technician would remove the belt to check the motor and motor pulley to ensure all is in working order first. Their next step would be to check the tub pulley and tub bearings. Last items they would examine would be the drive motor and speed control board by ohm measurement. Once the tech has ruled out a number of possibilities, he or she can pinpoint the exact problem and the necessary part to fix the issue. Since parts can often be quite costly, I would personally recommend reaching out to a qualified tech who can accurately diagnose the issue your unit is experiencing. Thank you for allowing me to assist you.

Washer wont spin code e57


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.

I have an Frigidaire Affinity Washer Model ATF6700FS1 got error code E41. Thinks the door is open. I tried unplugging the connectors to the door switch but nothing worked. What to do now?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

E41 error indicates that the problem is with door lock assembly, it is displayed when the control board thinks that the door switch is open. To solve this problem you have to remove the door lock assembly and measure the resistance of the PTC. If it reads open then the door lock assembly needs replacement however, if the reading is around 1500 ohms then replacing the control board is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
