Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer
Washed 3 loads yesterday just fine. On the fourth load, the washer stopped spinning. Gets stuck in "spin" and wont do anything. Will drain when put on drain cycle, and will fill and rinse. Just stopped spinning and gets stuck there doing nothing. Washer will fill with water but will not agitate. Manually move the dial to spin and it will drain, cleaned drain and found several coins, I can feel the rubber coupling and easily detect when there is water inside but upon draining the pump is definitely doing the job of draining. When it is supposed to agitate or spin I can hear the drain pump making quite a bit of noise but it does drain. There is good tension on the drive belt and I can see the winding spin inside the motor if I manually turn the belt but I never see the motor turn on its own, it appears there is no signal being sent to the motor.
After doing extensive research, I found out it is the door lock assembly. We went to our local appliance parts store and bought the new assembly. If you are handy enough, you can replace it yourself. You have to remove the entire front panel of the washer, but it only costs $50, so that is a lot better than buying a new machine. After we got the new assembly installed, the machine worked like new. The guy at the parts store said the replacement part is a lot better than the original piece and hasn't seen one fail yet.

I had what I believe was the same problem, at least same symptoms with my Frigidaire FWT445GES2 washer. It was caused by a broken door latch. A simple fix and an inexpensive part. Unfortunately I paid Sears about $70 to learn this. Look at the latch and if it is broken, replace it. If it is not broken then the cause for the problem must be different from mine.
