Code-Description-Solution

E40

Door switch or Main Control Board problem

  1. Is the loading door closed? No, close the door. Yes, go to step (2).
  2. Disconnect the plug from J2 on the Main Control Board and check for continuity between the pins in the plug. Open, check the door strike. If good, replace the door switch assembly. Closed replace the Main Control Board.

E70

Hoses usually reversed

Swap hot and cold hoses.

F01

Internal control fault

Unplug the machine for a few seconds then reconnect power. Select a wash cycle and start the cycle. If F01 reappears, replace the Main Control Board as there is likely an internal problem in the board. If the cycle performs without displaying F01, the fault was temporary, no repair is required at this time.

F02

Water fill temperature problem

The problem could be in the temperature sensor or the inlet hoses may be reversed. In either case, the control will try to resolve the error and the washer will continue to run. Before testing the sensor, first, check the wiring to make sure it is properly connected. To test the temperature sensor, unplug the washer and disconnect wiring to the sensor. Use an ohmmeter to measure the resistance of the sensor. A reading below about 3K ohm or above about 163K indicates the sensor may be bad and should be replaced.

F03

Water fill/ water level or drain pump problem

This type of fault could be temporary or permanent. If this fault occurs, the control will stop the washer and display F03. For the fill system, the problem could be the inlet water is turned off. To test the filling fault, run the washer with no load and check if the tub fills to the proper level. If the tub overfills or the water does not shut off, check the pressure switch wiring and the pressure tube connection to the air dome and pressure switch. If these check out, the problem could be in the pressure switch or water valve. If the tub fills correctly, run the washer in the Drain/Spin cycle to assure the pump operates and pumps out water. If the pump is not running, check the wiring connections. If the wiring is proper and seated, measure the voltage across pins 1 and 2 on the pump connector, it should be about 120VAC. If it is not, check the voltage between pin 3 of the 4-pin connector (JX) and pin 3 of the 8-pin connector (J11)(NEUTRAL). Voltage should measure about 120VAC.

General Family Codes Error

Code-Description-Solution

F04

Washer not advancing (max. time out) or Speed Control problem

This type of fault could be temporary or permanent. If this fault occurs, the control will stop the washer and display F04. To test this fault, select and start the Heavy Duty cycle with the heavy soil/stain option deactivated. The tub should be rotating and begin filling with water. If the tub is not turning but is filling with water, wait about 30 seconds after the tub is full and confirm the washer is agitating. If the motor is running and the tub filled, let the washer run for at least 6 minutes while measuring the voltage between pin 1 of the

8-pin connector(J11) and pin 7 of the 7-pin connector(J6). The voltage should be below 50VAC when the timer advance is off and should measure at line voltage when the timer advance

is on. Constantly monitor the voltmeter throughout this 6 minute run time to be certain to observe the voltage change as “timer advance on” is only on for a short time and could be

missed when it reverts to the lower voltage reading when timer advance is off.

F05

Stuck keypad or faulty connection at the Main Control Board

This type of fault could be temporary or permanent. Check the connection of the membrane tail to the Main Control Board for proper assembly.

DO/DR

Door open or door problem

Close the door or check door switch and wiring

Frigidaire Diagnostic Mode

  • Better models have a digital readout display.
  • Good models do not have a digital readout display.

The diagnostic test is performed by using the program knob. To start the test:

  • On non-digital display models, turn the program knob to the start position, Drain/Spin.
  • On digital display models, turn the program knob to the start position, Touch Up.

If the model has a timer dial that can be Rotated 360°, turn the program knob to the start position, Drain/Spin.

  • Press Pause/Cancel to turn off LED’s.
  • Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Pause/Cancel buttons until LED’s start sequentially chasing, then release buttons.
  1. All the LED’s will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LED’s in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality.
  2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment.
  3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment.
  4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment.
  5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will activate.
  6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened.
  7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble.
  8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and spin (leakage test).
  9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. The drain pump and door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin. Safety warning: if power is removed during this test, the door can be opened. To prevent injury, do not put your hands inside when the tub is rotating.
  10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code.

Quick Check

If there is no error displayed and the washer momentarily starts then turns back off:

  1. Listen for a relay closure inside the Speed Control Board shortly after the Start key is pressed. If this happens, the motor control has power.
  2. Check the 5-pin connector wiring between the Console Control and the Speed Control Board.

Frigidaire Diagnostic Mode (continued)

In the Better models line, the failure codes will appear in the display as an E followed by two numbers, a number and a letter, or two letters. The control will beep and the door lock, wash, rinse, final spin and control indicator lights will flash.

Example: E14. To stop the flashing, the customer may touch the Pause/Cancel button. The error code

remains stored in the control but once the problem is corrected, it does not effect the operation of the washer. If the failure is something that the customer can correct (such as the water faucets being turned off), the washer will operate normally the next time it is started.

In the Good models line, the control signals the failure code by flashing the five indicator lights of door lock, wash, rinse, final spin and control for the first number or letter after the E and the start indicator light for the second number or letter after the E. When a failure occurs, the washer stops or pauses and the control beeps and flashes the five indicator lights to tell the customer that a failure has occurred. To stop the flashing and beeping, the customer may touch the Pause/Cancel button. The error code remains stored in the control but once the problem is corrected, it does not effect the operation of the washer. If the failure is something that the customer can correct (such as the water faucets being turned off), the washer will operate normally the next time it is started.

To Recall an Error Code

  • Wake the washer by pressing any button.
  • Wait 5 seconds.
  • Press and hold the Start and Pause/Cancel buttons simultaneously.
  • All LED’s will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LED’s. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause/Cancel buttons are pressed. A two second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.

 

On a small number of washers with serial number prefix XC4, if the previous procedure does not preform as specified, follow the option below:

  • Follow all previous steps but instead of pressing Start and Pause/Cancel buttons, press and hold Options and

Pause/Cancel buttons.

  • The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code as long as the two buttons are pressed and held.

A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine: A=10 B=11 C=12 D=13 E=14 F=15

NOTE

Example code F1: the first digit would be 15 and the second would be 1. If this code would appear on a washer in the

Good model line, the five indicator lights would blink fifteen times and the Start indicator light would blink once. Troubleshoot problem by using charts on the following pages.
