SOURCE: frigidaire front washer has power but won't fill up, drain or go through correct cycles

You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. First set the washer to drain and spin. If you hear a hum or grinding noise and the water in the tub isn't draining or it's draining slowly you have something in the pump. If you take the rear panel off you'll reveal the drain pump at the right front corner or maybe middle on this model. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp (this can be tricky) attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. (you may want to have some old towels ready) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!

SOURCE: Frigidaire Affinity Washer beeps & won't spin

The drain filter is clogged. I had the same problem. There is a filter inside the "drain boot" (black) that comes from the drum to the drain pump. Mine was completely clogged with money, lint, etc..

SOURCE: Frigidaire front load washer won't drain or spin

This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

Frigidaire washers have a special belt that loses its ability to grab over time. NO other belt will fix your spin problem but the original Frigidaire belt. Fortunately for you, it is quite easy to replace. Also remember that the spin cycle is not for draining water, it is for wringing residual water from clothes while the pump is running.
So, your actual problem in the spin cycle itself.
Another factor to consider is that the bottom tub bearing on many frigidaire washers tends to rust and degrade over time producing a roaring noise. If this has happened to you, replacement is problematic and expensive, if not, you simply need a new belt.

Machine will run through entire cycle and will not spin. It quits at the spin cycle. I checked the Black boot at the bottom. Removed and cleared out coins. Checked pump- it was turning freely. Reinstalled...

I had a similar problem and found out the "latch" on the washer door broke off. The machine won't run in spin cycle if the door is"open", but it would run through the wash cycle.

Frigidaire top load washer that keeps shutting off

i canty be 100 percent sure
without the model
but it sounds like you motor is trying to start but for whatever reason is cutting out on the overload. Meaning it gets hot,,,and shutsd it self off to save it self
ther ecould be alot of reasons for this,,, far to many to type here,,,
with frigidaire it could be a bad motor capacitor, or a bad start winding on the motor.......
or a simple as a sock between the tubs preventing the tub from truning
sorry i cant be more help
but figured you should have some sort of answer to at least5 investigate

I hae a Whirlpool LSR8233EQ1 Top loading washer.

If you can catch it running while in the spin cycle but not spinning ( put a butter knife or screwdriver in the lid switch hole ) and wiggle the timer knob . If it starts spinning during this process , the timer needs replaced . Sometimes though , when a washer does everything BUT spin and you hear the motor running , the transmission is the problem .
