Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines
Hi, welcome to FixYa. Based on what you've described, "Washer will not perform final spin nor extra spin"... you need a door lock/switch assembly. It is likely the single most common fault (which prevent's any spin, and consiquently drenching wet clothing at the end of the cycle) with the frigidaire/electrolux built washer's, aside from pump's being obstructed. I think it fool's many people because the lock indicates it is energized on the panel, however the built in "monitor" switch inside the assembly fail's. I do see a lot of these particular machine's...unfortunately. You should be able to purchase one at most local brick & mortar stores or on-line part's depot's such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclininc.com" to name a couple. They usually sell for about $50 or so, part #131763202 and are relatively easy to replace. Let me know if I can assist you further. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today. Good luck. macmarkus :)

If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all.And this can be the cause that your washer is not performing the final 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 washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
Let us know if you have somethin more to ask else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya

Hey friend, thank you for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer, FWT449GFS2 is not entering the final high spin cycle. It is possible that you could have a defective motor or timer. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend you having a professional come out to the home for the repair of your washer. -Matt
