I have an 8 year old Frigidaire front load washer. A bit more than a year or so ago it failed to go into final spin and eventually I figured out it was due to a failed door latch assembly. I replaced it and less than a year later it started doing the same thing. I replaced the just the wax motor in the door latch assembly and it started working fine again. But 6 or so months later it started doing the same thing. I fully replaced the assembly and now 4 months later it is again not spinning up due to faulty door lock (always error code E43 "Door locking problem.") Since I replaced the latch assembly or parts of it 3 times in a little over a year, I really don't think the door latch is the root cause of the problem, unless there are a lot of weak wax motors out there?! Could the control board be bad? Could it be not sufficiently powering the wax motor and not fully engaging? Has anyone run into this? I would like some advice before I drop $200 on a new control board. Would I be able to measure the voltage with a DMM on the latch assembly while it is out of position in the washer to confirm a good/back control board?
