Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF8000FE
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!

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

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.
