Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. Gently tip the unit to the rear and block it up on something solid so that the front of the machine is high enough up that you can reach under the the front of the machine. I use THREE 2x4" blocks nailed together with blocks under BOTH front legs. The pump is in the right front corner of the base. Grasp the pump pulley and see that it turns freely. You will also be turning the motor but that is fine. If it turns freely start the fill cycle and let it fill until there is about 8 inches of water in the tub. Have someone select spin and then WATCH the pump pulley. Make sure it is not intermittently stopping or that the pump drive belt is not slipping. If all of this checks good the next step is to drop the drain hose and see if the water in the tub will drain by gravity at a pretty good rate. If it does not drain rapidly with the drain hose below the wash tub with water in it then there is something in the bottom of the Tub blocking the drain hole. <br />
You will have to remove the front panel by remove the 2 phillips head screws near the bottom front corners. Then pull the front cover toward you for a little over 30 degress and remove the panel. There are spring 2 clips at the top of the panel your disengaging. <br />
Remove the TUB drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub and check in the hole for any obstructions. Next remove the hose from the top of the pump and check the pump impeller. Using both hands... one on the pump pulley and one finger in the pump top hole hold the impeller and turn the pump drive pulley. It should NOT slip. If it is slipping you will have to change the pump. <br />
That is pretty much it for trouble shooting a drain problem other than making sure the drive belt is ok. If you can not clear an obstruction then the top of the machine has to be opened and the inner wash tub has to be removed. I wil help you with that IF you end up with somehing between the inner and outer wash tub blocking the drain hole. Just respond here and I will get back to you. <br />

Make sure the drain hose is not pushed too far down the drain pipe. It could
cause a siphon effect and drain the tub.
Make sure the drain hose is not tight in the drain pipe. It should fit loose so
as not to trap the air which can also cause a siphon effect.
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem that you find. Also, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If that happens, the entire outer tub would need replaced, but that might not be an economical repair to make and would require professional assistance. Hopefully, the main drain line is leaking and can be repaired. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes
Take off the lower panel ( 2 screws on bottom) pullout and down to remove. Make sure unit is unplugged pump is on the right hand side one hose coming from bottom of tub and the other goes out the back to the drain. Take off the hose from the bottom of the tub and be ready to catch alll the water in the tub suggest you use shop vac and remove all water first. look in the impellar in pump should be a clog right there then put everything back the way you toook it off and be careful to get the hose back on the way you took it off there is a slot in the hose and a tab on the pump for alignment.
if it doesn't agitate, spin, or even drain, then you most likely have a belt that is off. Of course, now that you have a washer full of water, it is going to be diffficult to tilt back and change the belt, so you might want to get a shop vac and **** the water out through the drain hose first.
With most of the water out, you should be able to tilt the machine back and see what went wrong. I believe on Frigidares the belt is underneath.
ck belt or replaced belt is designed to slip to a point if belt grabs too quickly the tub rpm come up to fast not giving tub time to drain down far enough to prvent climbing over the side also be sure drain hose is not plugged reducing water flow to drain
I think you have something stuck in the fill hose.. Remove the top two or three screws in the back.. then pull out the hose that goes to the tub. I bet you will have something in there.. most common is the inside liner to a bleach cap..let me knowif this it it... krazytech
