Good Morning Eric, this is JK. I understand that you are receiving error E5E on your dishwasher. It appears the error code you are receiving indicates there may be a communication problem. Check the wiring between the Main Control Board and the Speed Control Board. If you find the wiring is good, you may need to replace the Main Control Board. If the problem is not corrected, consider replacing the Speed Control Board. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Frigidaire Front Load Washer won't Spin

i fixed mine about 5 times and its always some thing diffrent.
try buyng the inexpencive parts first and leave for last the electronic control panel.
it could be that your washing a smaller amount than the recomended.
Take it to a profesional. dont do like me a DIY guy. Some times i need to take pictures when taking the monster appart and then because they are somany screws missing duct tape, rope or hangerwire becomes usefull.
All mechanics are wise guys you and me are thevictims.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand you have a Frigidaire GLTF2940ES2 series washer with an error code E48, correct ?
If you've decided to go the route of replacing one or the other for your diagnostic procedure, the lock assembly is cheaper...and more likely of the two in my opinion.
Not having any way of being sure until you try it or test with an ohm meter...which you stated as not having is a disadvantage though (they can be had for less than $20 too).
**If you get a meter to test...the lock on these machines are a two part device, a set of contacts to lock and a secondary contact to activate hi-speed spin, i.e.**
macmarkus_339.jpg
**Unplug the unit from the wall first...safety first**


I'd also suggest ruling out any loose wires at the control. It will require you to visually inspect the control board, thus needing to remove the top panel by way of taking out the screws at the back and sliding the panel back and up.

What to look for specifically is the wires with the green connector fastened to the board securely...I've seen a few vibrate loose thus preventing the unit from spinning, recognizing an unlocked/locked door latch i.e.

macmarkus_340.jpg
If loose, push it all the way in until it cannot be pulled out with a slight tug ( there are clasp's on the connector but I suspect sometimes they aren't secure when leaving the factory...just my suspicion )


If these things can be ruled out, then it is quite likely the door switch (95% of the time), so here's how to change/access the latch assembly...There should be a tech sheet underneath the tub assembly behind the access panel for test procedure of the switch.

**The door latch is likely the single most common fault (which prevent's any spin, and consequentlydrenching wet clothing at the end of the cycle) with the frigidaire/electrolux built washer's, ASIDE FROM PUMPS BEING OBSTRUCTED.**

You should be able to purchase one at most local brick & mortar stores or on-line part's depot's such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclininc.com" to name a couple. They usually sell for about $50 or so, part # 1531974 ( # at repairclinic.com ) and are relatively easy to replace.

As for replacing said switch, There are a couple ways to access it, through the top and squeezing your arm down the front or the way I prefer, remove the front bellows spring/retainer.

1) **UNPLUG THE WASHER FROM THE WALL OR TURN OFF THE BREAKER.**

2) Remove the spring, get it started where the spring is located with a small screwdriver. Once you`ve got the spring/retainer off ( it comes off and on pretty easy by hand ) pull the gasket/bellows back away from the cabinet.

309723c.jpg


3) Undo the two screws holding the switch to the cabinet, pull the switch out ( there is just enough slack in the wires so don`t pull too hard ) and swap the wires from the old assembly to the new one and you`re in business.

46e20c7.jpg
95f0559.jpg

4) To put it back together, just reverse the removal procedure. The trickiest part is the retainer. Rap the retainer around the boot leaving the spring for the last...and make sure the spring is located at the 6 o`clock position...usually. Just wherever it was initially.

Here is also a helpful link of the part and a video presentation to perform the change...

Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if my instructions are not clear.

Thank's again for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Frigidaire FTF2140FS2 front loader-how to tell whether I need to replace the main control board or the motor control board. Machine won't spin,already replaced door lock switch,that's not it.

please see the causes with common sense, before to proceed to exchange some error parts. God bless you
Water Level Control / Pressure Switch
his is the most common reason a washer will agitate but not spin. To check this on most , with no water you should have continuity on pins 7&15. With the tub full 7&16 should have continuity. This video walks you thru checking another type of switch.

Lid Switch
This can be the problem for the washer not spinning . Most whirlpool styles this will effect both agitate and spin but some models will still agitate but not spin.This is easy to check. You will need to remove the switch, this varies with model type but the testing will be the same. When the lid is closed the switch should have continuity when the lid is opend the switch should have no continuity. If it differs replace the Lid Switch.

Timer
To check the timer you will need to refer to the wiring diagram or disassemble to access the motor. Check the leads from the timer to the motor when turned to a wash cycle this should have 120 volts. If not replace the Timer, if it does the timer is not the problem.

Motor
To check the motor you will need to disassemble the washer to access the motor. First you can check the motor windings, to do this remove the plug and connect ohmeter to terminals. Refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading. Check motor for shorts by connecting ohmeter to terminals and motor housing should have no continuity. Connect voltmeter to motor wire connector and check for voltage. You should have 120 volts, if you do and the motor does not run replace the motor. If it does not have power the problem is elsewhere.

Belt
If your washer is a belt drive type make sure the belt is tight. Check for black soot from belt wear. Replace if it has excessive wear or broke.

Motor Coupler
This is a fairly common problem with direct drive machines but inexpensive and easy to replace. The Motor Coupler transfers power from the motor to thetransmission. The following video will walk you through the replacement of the Motor Coupler.

Transmission
The transmission does not usually fail. To check this on a direct drive remove the motor and then turn tub inside. If it spins freely with no noise theproblem is elsewhere. If it is noisy it needs replacing this is expensive and depending on the age of your machine you may not want to replace it. On a belt drive remove the belts and spin tub.

What to do with err code e5e? help


Hi Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your question!

Typically error code E5E indicates that your Frigidaire washer is experiencing a communication problem. Base on the intensity of the issue, I suggest contacting a professional technician to accurately repair your washer. Typically, a technician will need to check the wiring between the main control board and the speed control board. Depending on the diagnoses and if the wiring is bad, it has to be corrected. However if the wiring is good the main control board may need to be replace or if the problem is not corrected, the speed control board is possibly faulty.

My fridgidaire model #LTF2940ES3 is giving me an error code E47 what is this


Very likely the problem is a bad door lock. It is very common problem with Frigidaire front loaders. You have to measure the resistance of the wax motor in the door lock assembly (the orange piece on the right side of the picture). I don't know why Frigidaire call it PTC. Very confusing. The normal reading should very close to 1500 Ohms. Otherwise verify all wires from the door lock assembly to the control board and, if everything is fine, replace the control board.

If the door switch is bad, replace with this part.
If the control board is bad, replace with this part.

Install the door lock/switch assembly with the door switch harness disconnected but "jumped". Jump a wire between the wire harness terminals and if the error code (E41) stops appearing when the machine is started, the door lock/switch assembly is indeed faulty and needs to be replaced.

jahn27_554.jpg

Check the continuity of the door switch harness connecting the switch and terminal J2 of of the control board if the error code (E41) still appears every time the machine is started after putting a jumper wire between the door switch harness terminals.

jahn27_555.jpg
jahn27_556.jpg

Make sure the connectors are clean and snugly connected to both. Replace the wire harness if you are skeptical about its condition. Disconnecting the door switch wire harness (J2) from the control board and putting a jumper wire between the leads of terminal J2 on the control board will directly confirm the condition of the wire harness and the board itself. The wire harness is the problem and must be replaced if the error code E41 stops appearing. On the other hand, consider replacing the control board if the error code still flashes even when the leads of terminal J2 on the board is shorted ("jumped").
