Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you've described, and provided the unit is draining ( and I mean the drum is clear of water aside from the items being soaking wet )...you likely need a door lock/switch assembly.

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 & 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 # 1531974 ( # at repairclinic.com ) and are relatively easy to replace. It should resemble the image here...

As for replacing said switch, 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) Remove 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 swaThe washer works oke ,but it does notspin after - 46e20c7.jpg from the old assembly to the new onThe washer works oke ,but it does notspin after - 95f0559.jpge 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.

P.S.
There is a slim chance of a faulty motor or motor control board, but that would not be where I would direct you to start...those are exceptions rather than the rule.


Thank you for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

Regards,


Macmarkus :)

    Hello again,



    The diagnosis of the switch is actually in the symptoms, since it is energized and the door does lock, the unit does drain, it is just the spin not working...indicates the switch IS at fault.



    This is the reason for my questions regarding the draining, and provided the door locks...since it is basically a multi-function switch. it is preventing the control from going into spin.



    Aside from pulling out the tech. sheet in the unit and going through many test which are not always accurate anyway, ( too much room for error in my opinion ) you're safe to order a switch and save your time...which is likely more valuable than the switch as well.



    Let me know if I can provide any further info and I'll certainly do what I can. Good luck.



    Regards,



    Macmarkus :)

Fault


the only thing you can do yourself is leave the set unplugged for over an hour, this will reset it to factory settings. If that does not do the trick it will need to serviced. Chances are if it is a rear projection set that the convergance board is dead. This would be more to fix than the tv is worth.

Smelly clothes and machine!


Do you wash whites separately or with bleach? Sometimes changing up the loads to whites with bleach would kill the germs.
