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 :)

    Hi again,



    No problem !



    There are a couple ways to access it, through the top and squeezing your arm down the front or the way I prefer, remove the front bellows spring/retainer.



    1) **unplug the washer from the wall...safety first of course.**



    2) Reomve the spring, get it started where the spring is located with a small screwdriver. Once you`ve got the spring/retainer off ( it comes off and on pretty easy by hand ) pull the gasket/bellows back away from the cabinet.



    3) Undo the two screws holding the switch to the cabinet, pull the switch out ( there is just enough slack in the wires so don`t pull too hard ) and swap the wires from the old assembly to the new one and you`re in business.



    4) To put it back together, just reverse the removal procedure. The trickiest part is the retainer. Rap the retainer around the boot leaving the spring for the last...and make sure the spring is located at the 6 o`clock position...usually. Just wherever it was initially.



    Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if my instructions are not clear.



    Good luck.

Hi

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

Frigidaire Gallery washer won't produce final high spin


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

I believe E47 is a door lock code.
You probably just need to replace the door latch.
Common problem with those units.
