In Topic: Frigidaire Affinity Front Load Washer E68 Error Code

24 June 2013 - 07:53 AM

Thanks for your words of wisdom, PDuff and Spannerwrench.  I went back to the customer's house and checked all of the wiring connections.  I discovered that the heater control board had broken loose from the cabinet and was flopping around during a fast spin.  One of the wire connections was so loose that it fell off when I touched it.  I secured it with strapping tape because this woman needed her washer up and running pronto.  (I can replace the broken mounting bracket later.) I did replace her heating element as well, because it had some suspicious corrosion and the PTC thermistor resistance reading was way off.  The unit is working great.  She was so happy that she sent me off with a loaf of banana nut bread (as well as a check for parts and labor-senior discount applied).

The resistance of the element was 15 ohms.  Yes, there is a heater control board. Is there a way to test that board?  I have the Frigidaire service manual which describes how to remove the heater control board, but doesn't give any specs for testing it.

Thank-you for your enlightenment, oh wise Sensei. Indeed, the owner bought this washer 2nd-hand in a set from the original owner, so the shipping rod had already been removed when it was taken down a flight of narrow, precarious stairs.
