« on: February 28, 2009, 09:12:06 PM »
Hi, Have A Frigidaire GLTF2940ES3 Will Run Sometimes One Minute Sometimes 10 Minutes.Washer Will Shut Down And Start Light Just Flash. Sometimes Will Reset Sometimes Wont. Checked All Wiring Harnesses For Good Connections. Here Is My Problem, The Error Code Showing Up Is EbE, Only Problem Is There Is No Such Code In The Tech Manual Has Anyone Seen This Before On This Model. It Has The Digital Display.

Thanks!

How many beeps accompany the error code? Count them and report back.

When I hold Down The Start And Pause Cancel Button I Get The Following.

(Start Light) On Left And All Lights On The Right (Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin, Control) Will Light Up Simultaneously. They Will Flash And Beep Six Times.

Thanks For Your Help!

I have found that any code other than the ones the manual mentions usually point to a bad board. The closest error code to the one you mention is E6E (along with 6 beeps) which points to an intermittant power problem. If you  inspect the power cord and find it to be intact at the connections, and you are confident that the wall outlet is secure, then a new control is your likely option here.

The Problem Is Definately Intermittent. If I Can Find No Apparant Reason For The Power Fluctuation, Which Board Should I Change? The Speed Control Board, Motor Control Board, Or The Entire Digital Control Panel. Thanks Again For Your Help. I Am Very Grateful.

The main control board up top is the one in question. I cannot find your specific model number in the database, so you better make DARN sure you got it right before you order the wrong parts. (By the way, the speed control is the same thing as the motor control)

Why do you capitalize every word as though it were the title of a movie? :)

134732003 is the part number for the main board

before changing the board for that error inspect all wiring VERY well
pay extra attention to any wires going to the motor control board at the back of the machine and the thin pump wires

swing the tub towards the motor control board to simulate an off balance load, now look where the tub assembly would hit that board, if you see a wire routed in this spot make sure it is not broken or crushed

i have found many broken wires in that location, and they cause the board to give off all sorts of false error codes

I am having a very similar problem with my GLTF2940FS1. For a while now, it would sometimes not run, but ignorning it for half an hour then running it would fix the issue. And sometimes when it did run, it would not have rinsed/drained... just my laundry sitting there wet.

Not it won't run at all. Running it causes the door to lock, some sort of an electronic hum for ~5 seconds, and then the door would unlock. Diagnostics gives an E6E with 6 beeps. I cleaned the filter first just to be sure, but the problem is still occuring.

Ordering a replacement main control board to see what happens. For those who are following in my footsteps, to get to the main control board you need to remove the two screws at the top back and slide off the top panel. To fully get to the unit, you will also have to remove three screws you see when you remove the dispenser tray, and a couple screws you will see when you remove the top panel.
