Greetings,   This is a Kenmore Front Load Washer     

    Model:417.42052100    Serial XC24209291 

(*replaced the Speed Control Board based on the following measurements but customer just called and said it is still not working*  )

The problem was no spin. I did the voltage measurements at the 6-pin and 10-pin plug as follows: START of heavy wash...pins 5-1=58.7 volts   pins 5-2=58.6 volts

pins 5-6=36.8 volts   pins 5-9=41.3 volts   pins 5-10=58.7 volts  I thought I did something wrong, so I spun the dial all the way around to the start of Heavy Wash and measured voltage again. this time I got... pins 5-1=50.4 volts   pins 5-2=117.3 volts   5-6=118.1 volts   5-9=50.2 volts   pins 5-10=118.5 volts       

Measured resistance on 10-pin plug between pins 3 and 4=177.5ohms

Turn timer to Heavy Wash SPIN   pins 5-1=115.7    pins 5-2=115.5   pins 5-6=115.2 

pins 5-9=115.1  pins 5-10=115.4   What could be wrong with this washer? 

Thank You, Bob

did you check the connections at both ends? What fault code was the machine showing? Maybe i am looking at the wrong manual, but the measurement that you did on the 10 pin connector between pins 3 and 4...was that the motor resistance 177 OHMS? If so motor is bad.

Hi Thank You,  this is a Frigidaire washer.  Manual is "Tumble Action Washer with AC Drive"  There is no error code.  Page 52 of manual...the way I understood it is that if it read + or - 7 percent of 184 ohms bad speed control. it read 177.5 ohms. is that within range?

Hi Reg, Yes the washer fills and agitates but does that slow tumble instead of spin. It goes through the whole cycle. The manual says "If between pin 5 to pins 2,6 and 10 read 110v and between pin 5 to pins 1 and 9 read less than 50vac, bad speed control."I did the voltage measurements at the 6-pin and 10-pin plug as follows: START of heavy wash...

pins 5-1=58.7 volts  

pins 5-2=58.6 volts

pins 5-6=36.8 volts  

pins 5-9=41.3 volts  

pins 5-10=58.7 volts 

I thought I did something wrong, so I spun the dial all the way around to the start of Heavy Wash and measured voltage again. this time I got...

pins 5-1=50.4 volts  

pins 5-2=117.3 volts  

5-6=118.1 volts  

5-9=50.2 volts  

pins 5-10=118.5 volts       

Measured resistance on 10-pin plug between pins 3 and 4=177.5ohms

Turn timer to Heavy Wash SPIN  

 pins 5-1=115.7   

pins 5-2=115.5  

pins 5-6=115.2 

pins 5-9=115.1 

pins 5-10=115.4

Is the Door Lock Light ON during Spin ?

Does the Door actually lock ?

While the Door is locked, un-plug Washer Power Cord from Wall Outlet.

Try opening the Door.

If the Door Latch is working correctly,
you shouldn't be able to open the Door for at least one minute.

 

check the voltages again..

pin 5 is ground, so no need to mention in the list of voltages ...

turn it to drain/spin only for a couple mins, then turn off and try to open door. if it open immediately replace latch
