I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.
check the lid switch,open the lid,stick a screw driver into the hole where the strike on the lid closes into,you should hear a clicking sound,no click the lid switch is bad,or close the lid and open it up a few inches and close it down,no clicking sound the switch is bad.you can watch this video and it will show you how to change the switch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5aW9WkTFhEif the part number is 3949247 and the lid switch is around 50 dollars,common problem.if you hear the switch click when you stick the screw driver into the hole set the timer to spin,pull out the timer knob and then stick the screw driver into the hole again,if the switch is engaging it will drain and spin but if it doesn't click change the switch.good luck,if you need anymore help let me know.
If your Frigidaire washingmachine
started spinning, but then stopped, verify that the power cord is still
connected to the outlet. See if the outlet blew by plugging in a
different appliance into the outlet. See if you blew a fuse. A blown
fuse usually is either black or has broken wires. Replace the fuse. If
you have a circuit breaker instead of a fuse box, reset the circuit
breaker if it's been tripped. Check the lid switch, which is located
inside the main housing of the washing machine, near the door frame. If
the switch is burned out, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts
The pump's sole responsibility
is to remove water during the spin cycle. If the pump isn't working
properly, see if it's clogged with debris or clothing. Use needle-nose
pliers to remove these items. Check the pump pulley, which is connected
to the pump. This component must move freely for the pump to work. If it
won't turn, purchase a new pump pulley since you can't usually fix this
Check the door latch assembly if
the door isn't closing correctly. If any of these components are
broken, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer. If you do not,
won't start spinning since it believes the door isn't closed. Your
Frigidaire washing machine won't start the spin cycle until the lid or
door is closed. Always close the lid, and remove any items preventing
the lid from fully closing. Always close the dispenser drawer.
Never over- or under-load your
washing machine. Your Frigidaire washer may not enter the spin cycle if
the load is too large, since this can damage the washing machine. Remove
a few pieces of clothing. If the load is too small, add a few similar
items to the washing machine. Check the internal belt, drive motor and
motor coupling. If any of these components are broken or very worn, they
may not work properly, preventing the washer from entering the spin
cycle. Order replacement parts from a parts dealer. Check the tub and
basket bearings, and get new ones if the current ones have broken
components or are defective.
It sounds like your lidswitch. If it spins after you open and shut the lid, you must be jarring the lidswitch. This is a safety so kids can't open the machine while it is spinning fast. Just replace the lidswitch.
you can take the 4 phillips screws out of the corners of your soap dispensor, the lid of the dispenser willlift up and youll see wrapped around in there eitehr a floresent green or orange plastic wire. that is a manual release cord for the latch assy. this will allow you to get your clothes from the machine, form there look into why the latch never released
