Frigidiare washer not doing anything

I plugged my washer in for the first time and when i go to start a load it starts filling with water for a second and then stops. after a min or so it will start filling again and then stop after a few seconds. it does this a couple time and then doesnt do anything. ive pulled codes and have gotten e43 and e5e different times. the codes tell me to replace the control board but doesnt say which one. anyone have an idea as to what i can try to find out what i should replace?

    I have not gotten the E43 error, but have the same symptoms and gotten the E5F (communication problem) error. We have checked all the wiring between the motor control board and the control board. It doesn't actually seem to be overheating, there is no burning smell, the motor and belt seem fine. The washer has sat unplugged for days, then will start with this exact same problem when we go to plug it in and start it up again. We have had the washer (Kenmore 417.44052400, made by frigidaire I believe) approx 3 years or so. Thanks!

Washer stopped working, similar to your experience, water would start and stop after a few seconds and not progress. It displayed E5E error when prompted for code. I opened up the back of the machine and noticed that a connector was not connected to the control board, i removed the control board to get a better view of where it belonged, and slid the connector over the same control board, closed up the machine and it's back in business. Repair men told me that I needed to replace the control board, but I didn't need to, it simply had disconnected.

Before replacing check the voltage to the machine. Make sure the machine is not on any extension cord.when the machine is turned on make sure the voltage doesn't drop more than a few volts.

GE WWSE5200B1WW Top Load washer will not fill or agitate


Hi Scoti

I would start with water level pressure switch. It regulates how much water goes into washer and also stops overfilling..It may be defective and thinks washer is already full( hence no water and automatic drain spin) P#WH12X10093
Second thing to try is unplugging the washer for 15 min and letting all the voltage leave the control board. At this time you will reset the washer to default factory settings in case there was a computer glitch..

Good Luck

This washer will stop and start a number of times during fill as it is sensing how much water it needs. Also you must hook both water line up and have both on. Also you must use HE soap and very little of it.

I started my machine and it started to fill and then I stopped to add a couple more things and I can't get it to restart. help


switch the power off for 1 min. then plug power back in and select spin cycle.(to get rid of the water. When all water is gone and drum starts to spin, switch off again. Select the normal wash you use all the time and see if all is ok.

Screeching noise after water starts going in


Hi just read your posting.Now put the machine to a spin cycle and push start,Does the noise happen in this cycle? If the noise doesn't happen then try a cold water fill but turn the hot tap off first.If the noise still doesn't happen then try a hot water fill but turn the cold water off first. This noise sounds like one of your water valves is faulty.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure we can rectify this fault.

this seems to be a control panel issue. if water valve switches, try hot /cold water combos to see if it will start filling

Frigidaire washer starts to fill then stops


Check the water level fill sensor. Some used to be pneumatic tubes connected to a sensor. Your washer may have a different type of sensor. It seems like it fills ant gets to a point where it expects the fill sensor to trip but instead just stops. Also re check ALL connections to main drive motor. 
Also verify your mains power can handle the draw of the rated wattage. When it goes to engage the main drive motor it may not have enough current from the mains and simply stops.
Also check that the connection to the tumbler drum is not frozen.
