E6E error
« on: April 11, 2009, 03:34:49 PM »
Frigidaire ATF7000FS1 Washer. After reading the fault code list on my cheat sheet under the top panel, I couldn't find E6E on it.  The door lock hums and stays locked until you power off the machine and turn the control knob.  I'm going on a hunch and say that the control board is fubar.  All connections are snug and nothing pinched in the harness.  My only question is where is E6E?  Darn tech support is off for the holidays and I have an agry houswife on my tail.

I take it this is the Affinity model machine...Frigidaire is pretty sketchy when they suggest what to do here:

"Wiring bad. Correct wiring problem.
Wiring good. Replace the control board. If the
problem is not corrected replace the speed control
board."

They are suggesting it could either be a bad main control board or a bad speed control board down at the motor. The nice thing about ordering from RepairClinic is the ability to return a part if you order the wrong thing.

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.

Very late followup question - did replacing the main control board solve the E6E issue?

Well for those who will come after me - it does seem to have solved the E6E problem.

Hi gmathhew,

You ended up replacing the interface control board then?
