Re: frigidaire washing machine top load. troubleshoot
There are levelers at the corners of the unit for levelng - tubs have springs attached to them for righting the tub while working (spinning, agitating) - also if the clothes are evenly distrbuted in tub it will wobble badly during operation.
Leaking is usually from the drain pump especially from the point whwere the hose is attached to the pump

check the pump for a blockage,if the water cantget out of the wash tub,the machine senses this and wont spin out the load,also make sure to check both sides of the pump from the tub to pump and pump to house drain sides
Actually there are three fairly common causes for this:
The machine may not be properly leveled, and will go out of balance when spinning, no matter how carefully you load it. The drum tilts to one side and sloshes over the gasket at the top.
The pump might be blocked up badly, causing the water to not drain adequately, which can cause the water to be forced upward and out due to the building centrifugal force. These machines are designed to drain as they spin at a fairly steady rate. If something interferes with the draining, but doesn't slow the spin down, this can result.
Finally, the maximum water level switch (sometimes also called an overflow prevention switch, among other names depending on manufacturer) may be faulty. Normally your water level is controlled by the load size selector. However, on some machines the maximum load size setting is actually limited only by the overflow prevention switch. If yours is one of those, this could explain your problem.
level and balance is very important for all machines. make sure it is firmly seated on floor and shipping bolts pins and brackets are removed (some have brackets inside.) the machine should be able to evenly distribute the load. finally the shock absorbers could be bad. (seems rare on frigidaire)
