Question about Washing Machines
Frigidaire Front Load Washer Model GLTF2940FS1 does not always enter a high speed spin. Unit was replaced once for this same problem and replacement unit has occasional occurrence of same problem. Tech has "thrown" various parts at it but nothing has worked. They finally told me it was the way we use it, that if you select "Press Saver" it will not enter a high speed spin. I guess this makes sense but still the clothes should not be sopping wet. Also the problem still occurs even in cycles that do not have the press saver option, such as the "Heavy" setting. Also, "Rinse and Spin" does not always extract the water. The clothes just tumble back and forth for 10-12 minutes then machine shuts off.
Look for blockage at inlet of water drain pump i found a sock in that area and it fixed my problem same problem you have

Remove the belt from the motor and spin the motor pulley. Does the motor spin free?
No. Replace the motor.
Yes. Go to step (3)
2. Spin the tub pulley. Does the tub spin free?
No. Check the tub bearings.
Yes. Go to step (3)
3. Disconnect the plug from the motor and measure the resistance of the windings (pin1 to pin 2, pin 1 to pin 3, pin 2 to pin 3). All readings should be between 4 and 6 Ohms.
If the readings are correct, replace the speed control
If the readings are incorrect, replace the motor.
No. Replace the motor
