Question about Washing Machines
End of washing cyle Most water drains & spin commences but shuts down& tries to correct load & never gets to spin speed Will then step bach a process & commences to refill
First unplug the machine.Check the drain hose between the tub and drain pump for debris. Some drain pumps have clean out basket attached to them. If yours does open it (prepare for water) and dump the debris then see if you can reach the impeller with a finger. Make sure it turns (it won't spin but you should be able to turn it with a finger) and is not wobbly or cocked to the side. There will likely be some debris in the hose from tub to pump remove it and shine a flashlight into the hose. Look in the tub to see if you can see the light. If so hose is clear. If not there may be a sock or something stopping water from draining properly. Once you are satisfied hose is clear and pump is functionable, plug the machine back in and give it a try. Good luck.

We had the same problem with our washing machine being full of water and beeping during the rinse cycle. The problem is that the filter, which is located under the washing machine, is plugged with something. Ours was plugged with a cotton swab. You have to tip the washing machine up and remove the filter and unplug it. The filter is in the center of the bottom of the machine. It twists off. I had to get the cotton swab out of inside the machine through this opening.
This machine plugs up a lot - I've never experience this with any other washing machine. Good Luck!

SOURCE: won't drain in last cycle
Hi just read your posting.Now can you confirm the model number please.Please ;look underneath the machine to the front right and you should see a pump with a red or black fan attached.Turn this fan clockwise and anticlockwise a few times to hopefully loosen the pump if it is jammed.If the fan turns freely then put it back on its feet and start a spin cycle to see if it drains the water.Please reply with additional information on the questions and to tell me if you have the pump with the fan or if it is not draining or if it still is not draining.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on what you've described,...you likely need a door lock/switch assembly.
The door latch is likely the single most common fault (which prevent's any spin, and consequently drenching wet clothing at the end of the cycle) with the frigidaire/electrolux built washer's, aside from pump's being obstructed.
I think it fool's many people because the lock indicates it is energized on the panel, however the built in "monitor" switch inside the assembly fail's. I do see a lot of these particular machine's...unfortunately.
You should be able to purchase one at most local brick & mortar stores or on-line part's depot's such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclininc.com" to name a couple. They usually sell for about $50 or so, part # 1531974 ( # at repairclinic.com ) and are relatively easy to replace. It should resemble the image here...
As for replacing said switch, There are a couple ways to access it, through the top and squeezing your arm down the front or the way I prefer, remove the front bellows spring/retainer.
1) **unplug the washer from the wall...safety first of course.**
2) Remove the spring, get it started where the spring is located with a small screwdriver. Once you`ve got the spring/retainer off ( it comes off and on pretty easy by hand ) pull the gasket/bellows back away from the cabinet.
3) Undo the two screws holding the switch to the cabinet, pull the switch out ( there is just enough slack in the wires so don`t pull too hard ) and swap the wires from the old assembly to the new one and you`re in business.
4) To put it back together, just reverse the removal procedure. The trickiest part is the retainer. Rap the retainer around the boot leaving the spring for the last...and make sure the spring is located at the 6 o`clock position...usually. Just wherever it was initially.
Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if my instructions are not clear.
There is a slim chance of a faulty motor or motor control board, but that would not be where I would direct you to start...those are exceptions rather than the rule.
Thank you for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.
