Question about Washing Machines
Probably the lid switch. Try disconnecting it from the harness and use a jumper ( be careful not to ground it against the cabinet ) on the harness.

mostly its faulty motor problem or drain problem.
It won't drain
If your washer won't drain, check these:
It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.
To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.
Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.
If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.
It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.
It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

Unfortunately, I can't think of any reason other than a clog or broken impeller in the pump. Either way you would have to take the front off the machine to check.
There should be a pump right in front of the machine when you get that panel off, then have someplace for the water to go when you remove the hoses. If there is a clog, it would be right there more than likely due to the size of the machine and location of the pump. Look inside and see if there is a sock or small garment inside. If you don't see anything there, see if the rubber impeller is intact. If both of these things aren't the cause. there could be a clog farther down the hoses.
Hope this helps :)

Need more information to make an accurate diagnosis, try removing the front panel (two screws at bottom) and visually check first the belt (all the way around) and then the springs that hold the tub suspended.
I would bet on the belt.

In a packet on the back side of the diagonal panel between the washer top and control panel,is the wiring diagram. It will show you where the wires come from to power the pump. I am not absoluty sure but believe its directly from the timer to the pump. So find what wire is the hot one and check continuty on it from the timer to the pump,and the neutral wire check that for continuty as well. The hot wire is exclusive for the pump circuit,the neutral wire ties into all neutral wires so continuty can be checked on it from any neutral wire to the neutral for the pump.If continuty on both wires,Replace the timer. The washer timer part number is 131758600 it could be picked up from your local appliance parts store,or online at;

Good Afternoon Sarah, thanks for your post!
From the information you have provided the washer on your Frigidaire laundry center will not agitate or spin and will drain. This sounds like a possible issue with your motor or belt. In order to pinpoint the issue with your washer you may need to disassemble the washer and test each component for electrical issues and cosmetic damage. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend you speak with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt
