Re: does not spin sometimes
Tbone, make sure the lid switch is not broke or loose and the actuator is making the lid switch. Usually when you have a no spin, no drain on these direct drive models it involves the lid switch..Catriver...post back.

Hello friend, I appreciate your post!
Based off the information you have provided if your Frigidaire washer is draining and rinsing but not spinning it could be an issue with your timer or motor. I would reset your appliance by disconnecting power to it by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes. If that does not work I would recommend having a technician out to the home to properly diagnose and repair the appliance, since it could be any one of these underlying issues. Hope this helps. -Matt
The transmission in this machine is worn and is not shifting correctly. Understand that after the aggitate cycle, this machine should go into drain cycle without spinning and it should drain for about 1 minute. Then it should kick into spin cycle after it has emptied all the water. What is happening is it is (like skipping) the drain cycle and going directly into spin with water still in it,,, so the spin is slow as it is trying to empty and spin at the same time,,, thus the clothes do not spin out correctly,,, when you reset the spin, you actually spin all the water out the second time around.
we can eliminate the motor and the switch since that part is working. sound like your timer might be faulty, timer make everything work in persistence cycles, if its goes bad sometime it tend to jump/skip cycles.
Sounds like a timer issue. Try this, Yes it sometimes works. Spin the timer knob vigorously six to ten complete turns. It may be that the contacts are stuck together and this frequently frees them. Timers are expensive, so this is worth a try. Good luck.
Hi! When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water. Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
