Thread: Troubleshooting question for Fridgedaire front load washing machine

    Default Troubleshooting question for Fridgedaire front load washing machine

    Hello All,
    I have a Fridgedaire front load washing machine model #FTF530FS0 . The machine will not go into high spin with clothes in the washing machine. From the information that I have found this most likely caused by a faulty door latch mechanism. I measured the resistance and it was 966ohms on the 2 male pins on the bottom. I was going to buy a new one but then found out i couldn't return it if it didn't fix my problem. While I was at the parts store I measured the resistance of a new latch and it was 1640ohms. So, this is probably the issue. I just wanted to check the speed control module and the motor before i go through the trouble of ordering the latch and find out that it wasn't the issue. Can anyone offer me some trouble shooting tips to determine if these parts are ok. I really don't like doing the parts replacement method of trouble shooting problems so i am looking for some more technical checks that i can preform. Thanks.
