    Default Frigidaire wont agitate or spin

    Model Number: GLTR1670AS0
    Brand: Frigidaire
    Age: 6-10 years

    Hi.
    I recently moved and put my washer in my new home. The first load in it and it would not agitate. Doing some troubleshooting I figured the motor was bad. Replaced it and now still have the same issue. The washer won't agitate and will start to spin but stops. It makes a loud humming noise however nothing happens. Any ideas would be helpful.



    ***The machine is 7 yrs old.

    If your machine is less than a year old you should still be under warranty. Don't do any more repairs or you risk losing your warranty. Call frigidaire for a warranty repair.

    Remove the six pin connector from the speed control board. Check between pins 5 and 6 in the harness for 120 VAC. No volts would indicate the timer or timer connection is faulty.

    Sorry for the late reply. There is a 8 pin, not 6. Im fairly dumb come to electric things like this, do I test with the machine on or off?

    Do you see a ten pin?

    Thats odd, never seen an 8 pin connector.

    Rick hasn't been here the last few days.

    But it definitely sounds like the motor control board is bad.

    Here is the motor control board for your model you can order:
    Manufacturer part number 134149220 is RepairClinic item number 1206430
    Spin control board assembly

    All parts come with a 365 day full refund, even if you installed them.
