My frigidaire does do final spin clothes are soaked
No spin, try these:
Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.
Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.
Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)
Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.
On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

I have a model FWT867GHS0
Check back of washe with a flashlight for a bent or clogged drain hose. Do not move washer to check it. When you move it , it will straighten out and you will never know if it was bent
Also while it is pumping , pick up end of drain hose at drain and observe the volume of water being pumped.
If no water then the Pump may need replaced

No cold water,only hot
Good Afternoon Leonard, thank you for your inquiry! If the
washer was recently installed or moved to a different location, confirm that
the hoses are connected correctly. Otherwise,
the unit may be experiencing a communication issue with the control not
responding accordingly or have a faulty water valve. At this point, I would recommend having a service
technician to diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts. Experienced
techs also usually warranty their labor just in case something else is the root
cause of your initial problem.

HOW TO CLEAR THE LOC CODE ON MY FRIGIDAIRE WASHER
This means that the child lock (control lock) feature is active. There will be a button (or pair of buttons) depending on the model that you need to press and hold to toggle off the feature. If it is a single button, there will be a tiny padlock icon on the button. If you need to press and hold two buttons, the padlock symbol will be in a line indicating both buttons.
A likely combination is the Select and Option buttons. These should be held together for 10+ seconds. (This is the combination for some Affinity washers.)
If this doesn't work and you can't see a lock icon, please add a comment with the model number of your washer. I'll be glad to check what the combination is for your washer. The model number is usually on a plaque on the rim of the door for front loading washers or at the back at the top of the drum for a top loading washer.
I hope this helps.
(the control lock prevents someone from accidentally changing the cycle or a child starting a wash cycle with the cat or another child in the unit)

Our tumble action front-loader washer
Thanks for stopping by:
This is from not enough HOT loads.
Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.
Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.
It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.
Do an empty load with some de-greaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

The door to my washer
A possible simple repair can be attempted at the hinge of the door place a towel/washcloth/or other suitable clothing to add a soft jamming space and GENTLY!!! push the DOOR in an attempt to close it, place one hand at the normal closing area and the other opposite 1/3 of the way from the hinge. If there is not enough wedge fold over garment at hinge and make it thicker do this until door will close properly.
