Keinokuorma & AccApp - thanks for your replies. Sorry it's taken so long for me to reply, but it took me a while to find the time to get an ohm meter and to get back to the washer.

One thing I forgot to mention in my initial post, was that the washer works perfectly fine with no clothes or with a light load of clothes. The problem primarily occurs when I put a more "normal" size load of clothes in the washer.

That being said, I also referred to pages 50-52 in the Frigidaire washer manual (thanks AccApp) and performed some of the troubleshooting tasks.

Page 50-51: Measuring the readings from the 6-pin plug and the 10-pin plug.
Put washer in tumble, measure reading from 5 pin (of the 6-pin plug) and the 1, 2, 6, 9 & 10 pins (of the 10-pin plug).

Readings (VAC):
pin 1 = 36.7 (lower than 50 VAC)
pin 2 = 119.8 
pin 6 = 119.8
pin 9 = 26.3 (lower than 50 VAC)
pin 10 = 199.8

Based on the results, this points to a defective Speed Control Board.
Does that sound correct?

Page 52 - Drive motor tumbles very slowly in any timer position.
Measure resistence between pins 3 and 4 of the 10-pin plug.

Reading = 182.9 Ohms
From troubleshooting: If reading is 184 Ohms +/- 7%, Defective speed control board.


Both results point to a defective speed control board, but I'd appreciate your guidance based on the above results.

Also, where can I purchase a Speed Control Board for this washer online?

Thanks!
Mikel
