E47 error I get the E47 error with the test. So my door latch is not working right or the ptc. You wrote without the "right resistance going back to the board it would not go into a full spin" How do you get the right resistance going back to the board so it will go into a full spin? James

    A few months ago the 1st error code was E20 and your solutions took care of it with removing bra pads, etc. It was doing the same thing and once again I removed bra pads, etc. Well, it still didnt drain so I checked the error code which is now E47. What do you think it is?

    Thanks

Machine won't spin and was giving E47 error code. Checked resistance on PTC heater and it was normal (about 1500 ohms). Replaced front door lock assembly and it fixed the problem.

I think resistance test is not good enough to know the switch assy is ok or not.

Dryer won't spin belt good


Hi,

Your problem says dryer but the category says washer. I wrote this answer thinking the problem was washer. Sorry but I haven't had opportunity to fix my dryer before so can't help you there. If however your problem is the washer (or is anyone else is reading this), please read on... you should find some ideas here.

First you have to check the error code. If your washer does not have a digital display you have to do the following:

1. press any button to "wake up" the machine.
2. press and hold the start and pause buttons.
3. count the flashing lights.
a) first the five lights plus the start light will flash. Count.
b) then the start light will flash. Count.
4. error code is E +# of times in a + total # of flashes in a and b.

Example: flashes start light plus all five lights 4 times, then a pause, then start light alone 3 times. Error code is E47.

There are lots of error codes but E47 and E43 are both door problems. Check out the following document for a lengthy (but understandable) troubleshooting guide. E47 and E43 both say to do Test 9, which is test the resistance of the PTC. If it's not working then you have to replace the door latch assembly (about $80), if it reads around 1500 Ohms you have to replace the control board (about $250).
http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Webster/134542000.pdf

First, let me say that I have no idea how to test the PTC but it can't be hard with a standard multimeter (I will be doing this tomorrow with my Dad).

Second, the removal to access the door latch assembly is stupid easy - check out the following YouTube.

Third, if you have a different error code just look up the test in the manual document above.

Hope that helps!

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.

LTF2940ES E47 code repair


The E47 error code is usually an indication of a failed door lock/latch. To verify this, you will need to ohm out the PTC on the door lock. If the door lock does not ohm out correctly, then it will need to be replaced.

Kenmore front load washer 417.44082400 a E-47 code comes up. Pump out the water but won't spin.


The E47 indicates that the Control board is sensing the door PTC circuit is open during spin. Power off the machine and then back on again after 30 minutes to clear the error display. If the error comes back again then you will need to look at the PTC circuit & door latch assembly and check for any dislodged connectors or damage to cables. If these are Ok then the PTC circuit may have to be replaced.

My washer wont do the spin cycle. everything else work fine but no spin


Hi,
The reason the washer won’t spin is due to the either of the latches on the door.
This model uses a two stage lock that latches the door when the load starts, and then when it is time to spin, the second lock engages to ensure the door is properly secured prior to beginning the spin. When this second lock engages, it also closes a set of switch contacts (the auxiliary door switch) telling the control board the door is closed and locked. If for some reason this switch is not closed, the washer will tumble during what would normally be the spin cycle until the entire cycle is complete.
On the entire Frigidaire ATFxxxxxxx line of front load washers, if the secondary door lock fails, the unit will not spin. If you suspect this is the reason your washer is not spinning, do a check of the error log and you will find an E47 error has been logged. This error indicates the control board thinks the wax motor has failed because the auxiliary switch never closed. The customer will not see this error in the display, but it will be stored in memory. A quick resistance check of the wax motor will tell you if it has failed. Expect 1K to 1.5K of resistance from most of the wax motor heaters.

After finding the E47 error stored in memory, I would request you that the switch be removed from the outer door seal spring so you could pull the switch out the front. A quick resistance check showed the wax motor was open electrically so it was no longer working. Install a new switch assembly
, reattached all the wires along with the door seal. And now the washer will wash and spin.

Thank You for using Fixya.com

What is e47 code mean


The problem is with th door lock assembly or the control board. You can meter the PTC on the door lock assembly to determine if the problem is in the lock or control board. If PTC meters open or closed = bad door lock assembly. 1200 to1500 ohms = bad control board.

Will not spin, water will drain but motor will not move. Have replacer the motor control board. Washer will go through all other cycles fine.


what you first have to do is to recall the error code from the memory washer. The procedure is written in the user manual you received when you purchased the machine(white envelope inside the washer casing) but basically, you need to wake up the machine by pressing any button, wait for 5 long seconds, and then press the start and pause/cancel simultaneously. You hold the 2 buttons pressed together for a few seconds and then the machine will display the error code. If you see E47, you need to change the door lock module. In the manual, E47 or E48 refers to test #9 which is to measure the resistance of the PTC heater (white little piece acting as a relay) If you see something around 1500 ohms, this part really is defective. I changed it this morning and now my washer works just fine. The whole module is sold around 60$ in Montreal. Part number 131763245. The guy at the store told me this is 90% of the time the cause of the problem.

Careful with the error code: If you un-hooked a cable and started the machnie to make some test, the machine will probably store another error code in its memory. In order for the machine to show you the real problem, you need to hookup everything back and start a cycle. That will reset the previous error and store the valid one.

Washer has error code E47


Hi,

I have the same problem with the E47 code. I had the service guy over and he brought a troubleshooting sheet. Basically, you must remove the door switch assembly and check the PTC (the white plug on the door switch assembly). According to the diagnostics sheet, if the switch is open or locked, then it is a doorswitch problem, but if the reading on the switch is ~ 1500 ohms, then its the control panel.

The reading on my PTC was ~ 1400 Ohms (which is close to 1500) so I ordered a new control board. I'll post again when it's re-installed.
