Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
I have an almost 9 years old Frigidaire front load washer. Part # fwt449gfs2 (sometimes also referenced as fwt449gf)
I checked the motor and the control board. Power doesn't seem to get to the speed control unit. I checked the voltage differential between c4.2 and c4.4 and it is null. I tested the motor protector and it was around .18 ohms (supposed to be .37).
I bypassed the motor protector to check for voltage differential (using pin 8 from the motor cable with pin c4.4) to no avail. So power is not reaching the control unit nor the motor.
Could the wax motor be at stake? What reading (resistance?) am I supposed to get out of a wax motor ?
Don't have resistance for wax motor. It works or it doesn't. If the door locks with 120 volts to the wax motor it is working. From your checks you have the tech sheet out of the unit so I won't go take mine apart. Check the voltage fro the timer pins that the trouble shooting says to check. Also check the pressure switch. If it reads full it will not put power to the spin. That's not in the tech sheet.

Hey friend, thank you for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer, FWT449GFS2 is not entering the final high spin cycle. It is possible that you could have a defective motor or timer. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend you having a professional come out to the home for the repair of your washer. -Matt
