Frigidiare washer not doing anything

I plugged my washer in for the first time and when i go to start a load it starts filling with water for a second and then stops. after a min or so it will start filling again and then stop after a few seconds. it does this a couple time and then doesnt do anything. ive pulled codes and have gotten e43 and e5e different times. the codes tell me to replace the control board but doesnt say which one. anyone have an idea as to what i can try to find out what i should replace?

    I have not gotten the E43 error, but have the same symptoms and gotten the E5F (communication problem) error. We have checked all the wiring between the motor control board and the control board. It doesn't actually seem to be overheating, there is no burning smell, the motor and belt seem fine. The washer has sat unplugged for days, then will start with this exact same problem when we go to plug it in and start it up again. We have had the washer (Kenmore 417.44052400, made by frigidaire I believe) approx 3 years or so. Thanks!

Washer stopped working, similar to your experience, water would start and stop after a few seconds and not progress. It displayed E5E error when prompted for code. I opened up the back of the machine and noticed that a connector was not connected to the control board, i removed the control board to get a better view of where it belonged, and slid the connector over the same control board, closed up the machine and it's back in business. Repair men told me that I needed to replace the control board, but I didn't need to, it simply had disconnected.

Before replacing check the voltage to the machine. Make sure the machine is not on any extension cord.when the machine is turned on make sure the voltage doesn't drop more than a few volts.

Frigidaire front load washer will start and after about 2 seconds will stop. Lights will go from normal working to no spin

From what you have described I would have a professional diagnose the unit's timer and main control board for possible replacement of those parts.

Frigidaire washer starts to fill with water then stops

That is not the solution.

Start the machine and immediatly press the "Start" and "Pause/cancel" button at the same time. Then you will get and ERROR code. Look on the cheat sheet packed with the machine to find out what is really wrong. That will give you the real answer.

Dryer works - washer won't do anything!

Sounds like an Electronic problem.
You should call service.

If it's 10 years old or more, better off replacing it with a newer machine which will be much more efficient!
