Hello, I have an...

Hello, I have an frigidaire affinity front load washer and I have an E52 error. I have tested the ohms on all 5 post and post 1-2 is 5 ohms, post 2-3 is 5 ohms, and 1-3 is 5 ohms. Post 4-5 reads 115 ohms and will raise in ohms to over 160 when the big pulley is turned with the belt connected. What would I do next to check the motor or should I look at a new motor control board?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is approx. 10 yrs old. Model ATF6700FS1

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so.

the error code of E52 is a Bad signal from tacho generator.

1. Disconnect the plug from the drive motor and measure the resistance pins 4 & 5 in the motor.

Do you have a Volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it? to be able to do any component or voltage testing

The ohms on pins 4-5 reads 115

ok If the reading is between 105 & 130 Ohms, replace the speed control board. If the meter reads other than between 105 & 130 Ohms, replace the motor

So you have between the 105 and 130 ohms so you need to replace the speed control motor control board .

OK, when I check the ohms on post 4-5 it was 115 but when I would turn the large pulley (in either direction) with the belt connected to the motor, the ohms increased to above 160 ohms. Does this mean anything?

that tells you the motor is working .
