It can be be your speed control unit. It also can be your door switch. Even though it locks there is still another switch inside that sometimes fails. That is your cheapest way to start and a lot of times that fixes it. If not replace the speed control unit.

Seems your timer is faulty for sure as it is not lcoking on to the contacts in th set program.
The intital cycle seems to work as the water loads into the drum but then the next section of the motor drive is not intitiated. Please check also the water level control, the pressure swtich that needs to contact so as the timer goes on to the spin cycle with the motor working. So once the water level is reached does it stop? if so the timer is a suspect as the pressure switch cuts off the inlet valves but if not the pressure swtich must be checked.
Other wise the timer controller unit is a prime suspect.

Hi,
If the machine doesn't pump or spin
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. 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. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

If the machine pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these: The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it. A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it. The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Is there a recall on Frigidaire front load washers. i have had mine for less than 5 years and motor is coroded. Very disappointed. especially for the cost. Debbie Richardson 706 8886362


You need to contact Frigidaire customer service for this, they will have all that information. I don't know of any recalls on any front loaders personally, but based on my experiences with them they are to be avoided, more trouble than they are worth and the are problem plagued compared to top loaders (my 2 top loaders have lasted about 20 years each). And then there is the cost to buy versus a top loader.
