(NOTE: If the model has a timer dial that can be rotated 360°, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin. • Press Pause Cancel to turn off LEDs. • Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Pause Cancel buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release buttons. 1. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LEDs in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality. 2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment. 3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment. 4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment. 5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will activate. 6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened. 7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble. 8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and spin (leakage test). 9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. The drain pump and door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin. SAFETY WARNING: If power is removed during this test, the door can be opened. To prevent injury, DO NOT put your hands inside when the tub is rotating. 10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code.

Press Options and Pause Cancel buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle LEDs appear. If a situation arises where you cannot exit the Diagnostic mode as described above and the bank of 5 LED’s on the right end remain ON regardless of Program Knob position, a combination of pushed buttons may have caused the control to enter a special factory test mode.

SOURCE: Kenmore 417. 4405200 Front Load Washer error code E43

It's a bad wax motor inside the door latch. The diagnostics are buggy and do not test it properly. It should measure about 1.5K ohms, and when 120 VAC is applied to it, it should extend in about a minute. Part number 12002535 is $10 to $15.

What e59 means


Hello Ninemi,
I see that you are receiving an E59 on your Frigidaire Affinity washer. E59 states that "No Tacho" Signal for 3 seconds. I would recommend giving the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or switching the circuit breaker off that the washer is attached to. When you do this you will want to leave it off for 3-5 minutes. Once the 3-5 minutes has elapsed, bring power back to the washer and try to restart it. If you are still receiving an E59 error code, I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician to diagnose and see why you keep receiving this error code.

-Best Regards-

Kenmore Super Capacity 3.5 error code E59


see the error code E59= E59 equals no tachometer signal for 3 seconds.
This means that the motor is not signaling to the washer normally and may be caused by a variety of failures within the motor, basket or the control board. Generally speaking, the E59 error requires the service of a Frigidaire professional for resolution due to the technical nature of the ERROR.
God bless you
