Washer stops mid cycle. Wont spin. replaced door lock
« on: February 26, 2013, 07:20:37 AM »
I have a fridgidaire front loader that stops mid cycle, when its about to spin. Sometimes when I switch it to the spin/drain cycle it will spin the clothes out for me, but not always. Some days i can do 3-5 washes without any problem (usually after I have left it unplugged for days) It drains. Starts to spin out then stops and shuts off. The washer will stop around 15min left, then stop, shows 32min before shutting itself off.  Some days it will spin for me just fine, most of the time it drains, agitates, but doesnt go into full speed. I left it unplugged for the past 3 days and its not working still.  I have replaced the door lock hoping that would fix it, but it has not. Hoping this is a simple fix.  Anyone know what would cause this?  I have been looking for months online looking for answers.

Sounds like a failing door lock assembly. You'll need part #131763202.

I'm also getting an Error E57.   Friend suggested I check the pump filter. Would this also give me the E57 error?

E57 is high current through the motor inverter. Check that the motor and tub spin freely.  Check the motor windings, should be between 4 and 6 ohms.  If everything checks out, replace the motor control, 134743500.
