Question about Washing Machines
There are several things to check.
Check the position of the drain hose. Ensure that the height is as specified by the manual or you get siphoning and drain does not end.
Access the drain filter. This is often located in front at the base, there should be a trim or an access panel. In some case pump access is at the back of the machine or underneath.
The machine has a pressure switch. It is a sensor connected to a long thin rubber hose. The pressure switch is often in control assembly. Clean the hose and the switch. One way to test it is by blowing into the switch, but manufacturers say this must not be done.
The pressure switch is difficult to test in full.
Move a tech sheet tucked inside the control panel assembly. You take off panel that is held by a couple of screws and see if there is the envelope with the sheet.
The rest of testing is more complex because concerns motor and motor control unit. The motor control unit is a module located inside the machine. Testing of this parts is done reading voltages and Ohming the motor. This must be done by a technician.
Start checking drain hose and drain filter.

I appreciate your post, Rachel Kovach!
From my understanding your Frigidaire frontload washer is not spinning the final spinning and the clothes are still wet. If you washer is overloaded it will not spin properly to release the water out of the clothes. Also, a small load will cause your washer to not spin properly. You should additionally check the drain hose to make sure it not kinked or twisted that could cause your improper draining. If all that checks properly it could be an issue with your drain pump, motor, and control panel. I would suggest consulting with a technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help avoid unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
