Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines
There is an auxiliary switch in the door lock and switch assembly that
is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to
the spin cycle.
This is a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during the
spin cycle and the machine will not spin unless the switch is activated.

that the auxiliary switch cannot be activated and the door lock and
switch assembly is faulty. Replace the door lock and switch assembly to address the issue. Indicate the complete and exact model number of the machine for the right replacement part number.
