Question about Washing Machines
According to the error lookup table for the machine (That you can view if you go to: http://www.scribd.com/doc/8559708/Frigidaire-Affinity-Front-Load-Washer-Error-Codes )
E43 is "Board communication problem" - Solution - Replace the control board.
I THINK that this machine only has one main board. I say this because machines with 2 main boards have a nasty habit of one board dying and taking the other out at the same time.
You can get a new board from the manufacturer, or quite possibly from somewhere like ebay if you're lucky. The problem with a DIY fix of this magnitude is that the cost of the board is high and if the diagnisis is whrog, or more extensive than just the board, you may find yourself with a board you don't need, but cant return because it has been fitted (and the scratches where the connectors go are a dead giveaway for this). Worse still, a board that you blew up, because it wasn't JUST the board that was faulty..... And a machine that still doesn't work and now needs more parts. DIY with main boards can be a high risk strategy and I've been bitten a few times when I've thought I was being clever and doing a bargain DIY fix.
So, ask yourself the question, do you call out someone who is qualified and let them take the risk, do you do it yourself, or do you throw the machine away. I would suggest step 1 is to call the guy in the local paper, get an estimate and make a decision based on that.
