The story of Frigidaire started in 1918 when the large corporation General Motors acquired a small unknown Guardian Frigerator Company, engaged in designing and producing of fridges. The union turned to be successful, so next years are characterized by developing of refrigeration equipment. The goods, released under the Frigidaire brand, are considered to be the standard of reliability and practicality. Moreover, it keeps being one of the best these days. Speaking about the history, a little bit later the company started releasing washing machines. Its construction allows reducing washing time, power consumption and supply of water even if there is too much laundry.

Frigidaire washers Front-Load error codes

Error CodeConditionCheck/Repair
E11Fill time too longMake sure that the water supply faucets behind the washer are fully open. Check the fill lines for freezing in the winter. Check the drain system for a siphon problem. If the inlet water valve assembly is defective, replace it.
E13Water leak in the tub or air leak in pressure-switch air hoseThe washer fills for too long without the water level pressure switch tripping to indicate that the washer is full. Check for a leak in the wash tub. If the tub is not leaking, check to see if the washer is overfilling. If it is, check the air hose and water-level pressure switch for problems.
E14Dispenser drawer not closedSome models have a magnetic reed switch in the dispenser drawer housing that detects whether the dispenser drawer is closed. If the drawer is closed, check to see if the magnet on the bottom side of the drawer is in place. Replace the magnet if necessary. Replace the reed switch if it's defective.
E21Drains slowlyCheck the washer drain and drain hose. Unplug the washer and check the drain pump for a clog. If the drain path is clear, the drain pump usually needs to be replaced.
E23Drain pump relay failedThe drain pump relay on the control board failed. Replace the electronic control board
E24Drain pump relay failed
E31Pressure sensor not communicating with electronic control boardThis error is only on models with a digital display. Unplug the washer and check the wire harness connections between the water level pressure sensor and the control board. If the wiring connections are sound, the water level pressure sensor usually needs to be replaced.
E35Water-level pressure sensor detects overfillThis error is only on models with a digital display. If the washer is actually overfilling, check the inlet water fill valves to see if they are shutting off the inlet water flow properly. If they are defective, replace the water inlet valve assembly. If the washer isn't overfilling, the water-level pressure sensor usually needs to be replaced.
E43, E44, E45, E46Control board failureUnplug the washer for 5 minutes. Restore power and see if the code returns. If it does, replace the electronic control board.
E47Control detects an open door lock circuit in Spin modeUnplug the washer. Check the wiring harness for the door lock assembly. If the wiring harness is sound, the door lock/switch assembly usually needs to be replaced.
E48Control detects a problem with the door lock circuitUnplug the washer. Check the wiring harness going to the door lock assembly. If the wiring harness is sound, the door lock/switch assembly usually needs to be replaced.
E52Bad signal from the motor tachometerUnplug the washer. Check the resistance through the tachometer on the motor. It should measure between 105 & 130 ohms. If the tachometer is bad, replace the drive motor. If the tachometer resistance is within that range, replace the speed control board next to the motor.
E55Motor overheatingUnplug the washer and remove the drive belt. Spin the motor pulley. If it doesn't spin freely, replace the drive motor. If the motor spins freely, rotate the large drive pulley on the back of the washer tub to check the spin bearing. If the pulley doesn't spin freely, the outer tub and spin basket usually need to be replaced because a spin bearing failed. If the spin bearing is sound, check the resistance of the motor windings for a reading between 4 and 6 ohms. If the motor has failed, replace it. If the motor is sound, the speed control board usually needs to be replaced.
E56High motor current
E57High current on inverter
E58High current on motor phase
E59No tachometer signal for 3 secondsUnplug the washer. Check the resistance through the tachometer on the motor. It should measure between 105 and 130 ohms. If the tachometer has failed, replace the drive motor. If the tachometer resistance is within that range, remove the drive belt. Spin the motor pulley. If it doesn't spin freely, replace the drive motor. If the motor spins freely, rotate the large drive pulley on the back of the washer tub to check the spin bearing. If the pulley doesn't spin freely then the outer tub and spin basket usually need to be replaced. If the spin bearing is sound, check the resistance of the motor windings for a reading between 4 and 6 ohms. If the motor has failed, replace it. If the motor is sound, the speed control board usually needs to be replaced.
E5A, E5B, E5CSpeed control board is overheatedReplace the speed control board
E5D, E5E, E5FCommunication problem between the control boards Unplug the washer and check the wire harness connections between the main electronic control board and the speed control board. If the wire harness connections are sound, replace the speed control board. If the problem persists, replace the main electronic control board.
E67Incorrect voltage supply to the microprocessorUnplug the washer for 5 minutes and then plug it in. If the code returns, replace the electronic control board.
E75Failed water temperature sensor circuitThis error code is for washers with a digital display only. Unplug the washer. Check the resistance through the temperature sensor circuit. It should be around 50,000 ohms at room temperature. If the sensor is defective, replace the water inlet valve assembly. If the resistance in that circuit's sound, replace the control board.
E95Electronic control board communication errorUnplug the washer for 5 minutes and then plug it in. If the code returns, replace the electronic control board.
EB1Incoming power frequency out of limitsUnplug the washer. Have your local electrical power service provider check the power supply frequency. If it's normal and the code doesn't clear, replace the electronic control board.
EB2 Incoming line voltage is above 130 volts ACUnplug the washer. Check the outlet voltage. If the voltage is high, have an electrician repair it. If the voltage is normal, replace the electronic control board.
EB3Incoming line voltage is below 90 volts ACUnplug the washer. Check the outlet voltage. If the voltage is high, have an electrician repair it. If the voltage is normal, replace the electronic control board.

It is very complicated to imagine our life without a washing machine. Housewives don’t want to back home after exhausting work and spend time washing the laundry by their hands. We got used to having a reliable helper at home, which makes our daily life much easier. You can trust this technique Frigidaire almost everything and be sure that things will look great after washing.

Nowadays, the consumer household appliance market is oversaturated. Regardless of manufacturer`s characteristics and washer’s quality, optimally take into account a number of rules:

  • Do not leave the machine functioning for a long time without supervision.

Nobody knows what can suddenly break. For example, a pump or nizzle can have some malfunctions or a door hatch can unexpectedly open, etc.;

  • If your washer is broken, do not panic! Also, we advise you do not try to solve the problem pushing on random buttons, because you may spoil the mechanism work.
  • Because of panic people often are sluggish and inactive, which leads to waste of money and irreversible consequences.

So what is the problem? A washer user can’t answer this question. So it is necessary to contact a repair service center.

In order to fix everything, it is better to ask for help from a narrow profile professional, a repairman of a washing machine, who will determine the cause of a breakdown, and then eliminate it at any convenient time for the customer.

In this situation, a washing machine Frigidaire will last for many years, being your reliable assistant.
