Electrolux washer model # EIFLW50LIW0

My Electrolux washer goes into a deep pause (screen says time but nothing happens)about 1 second after it start the spin cycle.

In any setting everything works well, then when it wants to spin there is a thump noise and it just stops and stays in a pause. There are no error codes. I can turn off power at breaker to reset and the problem persists at next use.

Checked the drain pump and it is clean and works properly.

I took off belt and both motor and drum spin fine. I ran the washer without the drum connected (no pulley) and the noise and pause are still occurring (the motor spins fine).

I ran the diagnostics and it came back with E58, yes that dreaded E58.

I checked the motor resistance and the pin combination are 3.4 ohm and 115 for the tacho.

There are no apparent broken wires between the control board and the motor.

How can I test if the motor control board (part # 5304504715) is bad. I guess I can buy one and replace it and try it, but is there anything I can do to test the board.

What else can be going on?

I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below.

E58--->High current on motor phase. Refer to TEST 8.

TEST 8:
1. Find out if the unit was overloaded. If not, remove the belt from the motor and spin the motor pulley.
Does the motor spin free?
No. Replace the motor.
Yes. Go to step (2)

2. Spin the tub pulley. Does the tub spin free?
No. Check the tub bearings.
Yes. Go to step (3)

3. Disconnect the plug from the motor and measure the resistance of the windings (pin 1 to pin 2, pin 1 to pin 3, pin 2 to pin 3). All readings should be between 3 and 6 Ohms.
If the readings are correct, check wiring from motor to motor control board, If good, replace the motor control board.
If the readings are incorrect, replace the motor.

Here's the motor for your model:
Drive Motor 134638900


Here's the motor control board for your model:
Motor Control Board 5304504715


Let us know what you find.

Thank you for the feedback: Here are the results of the tests:

TEST 8:
1. Find out if the unit was overloaded. If not, remove the belt from the motor and spin the motor pulley.
Does the motor spin free? YES
No. Replace the motor.
Yes. Go to step (2)

2. Spin the tub pulley. Does the tub spin free? YES
No. Check the tub bearings.
Yes. Go to step (3)

3. Disconnect the plug from the motor and measure the resistance of the windings (pin 1 to pin 2, pin 1 to pin 3, pin 2 to pin 3). All readings should be between 3 and 6 Ohms.
1-2 = 3.4 ohm
1-3 = 3.4 ohm
2-3 = 3.4 ohm
4-5 = 115 ohm

If the readings are correct, check wiring from motor to motor control board (wiring looks good, nothing broken or peeled)
, If good, replace the motor control board.
If the readings are incorrect, replace the motor.

So the verdict is the motor control board. How can I check that before I ordered a new from you? Just dont want to keep in cahing this porblem of we can rule out control board as well.

Many thanks

You are correct!

Because you followed the tech data sheet instructions and it said if the motor windings reading were correct, and the wiring was good, then the problem is the motor control board.:)

So I would order the motor control board and that will fix it.

Just ordered the board from your link. Is there a tech manual for the replacment of the board? or just unplug the two wire harnesses, replace, and replug?
Thanks again

Ok, Sounds good.:)

I located a video that shows you how to access if from behind the rear panel:

Once the rear panel is off, just remove it and remove the wire connectors to it and install the new one and hook the wire connectors back in place on the new one, should be in the exact same places as the old one.

Now, on the older Electrolux and Frigidaire models they used to put screws mounting it to the base, but on these newer models they may slide to snap off the base.

Let us know how it goes.
