OK guys, here's one for the books . . . the Frigidaire guy has hit a head scratcher on a Frigidaire! Got a call on this unit, no drain/spin. Found drain pump shot (bearings wasted). Replaced pump, set machine into diagnostic mode and all worked well INCLUDING spin in diagnostic mode. Didn't test in a regular cycle since I figured that was it so headed to next call.

Customer called back next day and said no spin. I asked if she saw any flashing/beeping answer was no. So I went out and ran in drain/spin cycle. No spin, no code flash. Ran in test mode and it spins, but then at very end of test it threw a code 43 which is a simple "BAD MAIN CONTROL BOARD, REPLACE MAIN CONTROL BOARD" in chart with no tests. Have had this numerous times, soooo I ordered the control, replaced it and to my dismay received same code in test cycle and no spin in regular cycles.  >:(  So, went through checks of motor windings and tacho-generator and all fell within parameters (tacho was 120 ohms, range 103-130; windings all were exactly 6.1 ohms. Though range is 4 - 6 ohms, I figured that 0.1 ohm falls within the usual +/- 10% variance you usually allow on measurements) All wires/plugs check out good, so I think it is motor control board.  ???

Has anyone had a similar issue? I haven't seen a board diagnostic be wrong like that in two boards? Strange!

Thanks!

I see this all the time. If it spins in diagnostic, but will not when you run a cycle.. it's a bad door lock.

Hey guys, thanks for the input. Guess I didn't think to look there. I'll check it out & let you know if that was it but sure sounds like you guys have been there done that!

Take care,

JAD

That was it. Door lock replaced, machine spins out, happy customer. Thanks everybody!  O0 I actually don't see many front loaders around here . . . yet, so I hadn't run into this before. Plus, I see no mention of this in the Frigidaire service bulletins either. Wonder what's up with that?
