Actually there are three fairly common causes for this:

The machine may not be properly leveled, and will go out of balance when spinning, no matter how carefully you load it. The drum tilts to one side and sloshes over the gasket at the top.

The pump might be blocked up badly, causing the water to not drain adequately, which can cause the water to be forced upward and out due to the building centrifugal force. These machines are designed to drain as they spin at a fairly steady rate. If something interferes with the draining, but doesn't slow the spin down, this can result.

Finally, the maximum water level switch (sometimes also called an overflow prevention switch, among other names depending on manufacturer) may be faulty. Normally your water level is controlled by the load size selector. However, on some machines the maximum load size setting is actually limited only by the overflow prevention switch. If yours is one of those, this could explain your problem.

During the wash cycle, an error HE appears, and the wash cycle stops. the clothes are soaked with water

Hi areej, this is AP! Thank you for your post.

I understand you are experiencing an HE indicator during the wash cycle on your Frigidaire front load washer. I would recommend contacting a local technician as this appears to be a problem within the motor speed control board. However, I would recommend a local authorized technician to come out and properly diagnose and repair your front load washer. I hope this information helps.

I have a frigidaire washing machine and it spins out just a small amout of water during the cycle, not a lot , have checked the pump and it works, just wondering if it could possibly be the lid lock

It would not agitate if it were the lid lock, just as agitation should stop when you open the lid during cycles. More likely it's something blocking the drain hose. Here is a link to an excellent online repair manual. Click on the picture of the wash machine, then go to chapter 2. Then have a look at Section 2-3.

Frigidaire gallery front load washer dripping sound

With any front load machine manufacturers suggest to leave the door open after cycles to help evaporate the water - this is even done in top loading machines nowadays. Also clean the unit with bleach water and rinse in high temp water cycles.

Water was overflowing over the top and flooding the laundry room

If it was left in the reset position then it could absolutely pushed the diaphragm in the air switch to a point that the contactor couldn't reach it. Set it on a large load, let it fill and watch it. If it starts to overflow, pull the plug out, if it continues filling, you need a new water valve on the washing machine and if it stops then you need a new level switch

Take off the lower panel. Inspect the shocks too see if they are damaged. If they are OK turn the wash basket by hand if the knock is heard then most likely you have a broken wash basket.
