    SOURCE: washer would not drain or spin (frigidaire aft6000sf1) error code E56

    Hello - Typically, error code E56 commonly refers to a motor issue. It indicates that either the motor has overheated and/or will not drain/spin. Try reprogramming the washer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately 30 minutes for the washer to cool down and turn the unit back on. If error code persists, I personally suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the issue at hand.

    What does error code E56 what does error code E56 mean


    Unfortunately, and error code of E56 indicates a high motor current. There are a couple of issues that could cause this problem and if you're comfortable working on it yourself, I can try to direct you to self-help website that will explain how to diagnose the issue. Be advised it will require some machine disassembly to test whether it's actually a motor problem or if there is an issue with the tub assembly being difficult to turn.

    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

    What does e56 error code mean


    Good afternoon friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

    Typically on a Frigidaire washer an "E56" error code stands for a high motor current. Which means you could be seeing an issue with your motor or speed control board. If you are getting that error code you could be seeing a miscommunication within the appliance, I would suggest a reset to your washer would clear any false error codes. You can reset the appliance by unplugging the power cord or flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

    E56


    Hi Susan, this is JK. I understand that you are receiving an error E56 on your washer. This error E56 is indicating a high motor current, the motor has overheated. The washer motor will stop when it is overheated, allow the motor to cool down and attempt to wash again. If the problem persists, you would need to contact a service provider to test the motor, motor pulley, tub pulley and the bearings. Hope this helps!
