Hello Lisa, thanks for you submission!
I see that your Frigidaire washer is not operating at all. This could be a possible issue with your control panel or power cord. Have you performed a reset? You can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. If the reset does not help resolve your issue I would suggest seeking additional assistance from a professional technician. This will help prevent any unnecessary part purchases or a misdiagnosis. I hope that this information is helpful to your repair. -Matt
There are two parts. The door latch and the door switch. The door latch should be held on by 2 screws and screwed to the door. It has a bayonette that sticks out and when you close the door, it activates a door switch and also latches and keeps the door closed during operation. You can order the part online from any appliance parts place or get one locally. The door switch is harder to replace and usually you have to remove the top and reach down to remove it. Its a tight area and a little difficult to work with. You can check your drum to see if it is binding by reaching inside and attempting to rotate the drum by hand. If it will turn without too much effort, I would say the drum and bearings are fine. Without getting into too much detail, you may have a bad motor or a broken belt. You can remove the lower panel by removing two screws and looking at the back and seeing if you have a broken belt. It may be a good idea to have someone look at it if you don't think you are capable or know someone who is. Hope this helps
Based on what you've described,...you likely need a door lock/switch assembly. The closest I found to your model is actually CLTF2940ES0. The door latch is likely the single most common fault (which prevent's any spin, and consequently 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
Check to see if one of the two tabs on the door latch assembly are broken. If one is broken, replace the door latch. If the door latch is ok, you might have to replace the door switch and the door latch. To replace the door switch you have to remove the front panel. Remove the two screws holding the door switch assembly in place and drop the door switch assembly down into the bottom of the washer. Remove the wires and transfer to the new switch. Reach up and line up the new switch and install the two screws. Remove the two screws on the door latch assembly on the door, and remove old door latch. Install the new latch and replace the front panel. I hope this helps.
did you try unplugging it and plugging it back in to see if you can get it to reset? Would it buzz when you try to drain it? Does the door latch lock when it goes into the wash cycle? Usually the door latch locks when it goes into the wash cycle and stays locked. So it filled up, the door latch should lock, then should go into wash cycle. Then you said few minutes later it stops. How did you get the door open? reason i ask is Usually i would see the clothes get stuck inside the washer because the door latch is still locked when it stops. Was the door unlocked when it stoped. If so maybe something going on with the communication from the board to the door latch maybe. Did you try operatin the drain?
For the odor, you might try running a cycle with a strong bleach solution (no clothes!!!). Leave the door open when not in use to air out.
Certain Frigidaire models will not spin out if the door switch is damaged or is defective.
Unplug the machine first before doing this!!
You can access the switch by removing the top (remove two screws from the back of the panel). To remove the switch, remove the two screws from the front of the machine where the door latches. Locate the switch and observe how the wires plug into it. Replace with new switch.
