I'm having the same problem with a Frigidaire Crown Washer.

It is the start capacitor which is out on mine.

This is how I confirmed that:

Be careful with your fingers and turn on your washing machine, unplug it, and remove the belt from the motor. Plug the washing machine back in and turn it on. When it gets to a spin cycle, turn the washing machine motor by hand (WATCH YOUR FINGERS!!) and if it starts spinning on its own, then your motor is good and it is likely the start capacitor.

For further testing of the start capacitor, go here:

My start capacitor has a resistance of 1 ohms and never makes it all the way to 0 on my multi-meter when doing a resistance test.

The washer tub bearing may be defective, but that is the only thing that I can think of. Are you noticing this on all loads or just heavy items like bath towels and jeans? Are you redistributing the clothes before the final spin, try that. Also do not overload the washer, wash to medium loads instead of one full to the top load. Wastes water but saves on repairs.

My front loading washer will not give a high speed spin out. It shuts off at the 7 minute mark

There are two things you can look at that are common problems for this type of model. One is on older Frigidaire front loaders the shock absorbers tended to break, you can remove the front panel and view both shocks, look for a end of the shock broke off. Second is check the trap for the water pump, have a towel for the water. The replacement shocks are better........and most front loaders will not spin if the pressure switch is not open(water pumped out) The remaining problems are electrical, reconnect your connectors on the electrical harness and board or timer, figure out tech sheet or call the service company......(unplug when doing any service)
hope this help
