Question about Frigidaire FTF2140FS Front Load Washer / Dryer
If it is a top loader , remove the agitator and get the n bits out of the tub
there is not normally a filter to the pump so bits may ne in the impeller of the pump stopping it from turning

There may be some pieces of mat stuck between the inner and outer drums. The quickest way to remove this is to remove the drain hose that leads from the drum to the pump and feel around the bottom of the outer drum and remove any foreign objects that may be stuck in there.

I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....

i think your on the right track but a couple of things you need to know first that model washer wont spin tiny loads or one articles of clothing it has a device in the motor called a tacho generator to balance if you have only a small load it cant sense the balance and most of the time will only rock back and forth second your pump is the most likely culprit if you look in side the washer you will see a seem in the tub next to that will be one of the washer tumblers take the screws out of that tumbler slide it forward there will be a hole there rotate the tub to your right and you will find the hole going down to the drain pump can check it there but i don't think you'll find any thing as that is a larger hole it think your drain pump is now if you have a shop vac this is time to vacuum the water of the tub and all the way down the drain hole for the next stage usally i tell customers to remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vacuum the water ou of the washer from the drain hose but because of the pillow this might not work in your case.now remove the two screws on the front lowerpanel and pull the panel

Thanks to the different postings on the net about a E20 error code I took apart my washer’s drain system ATF7000 to find. A pare of little girls underpants, one hair band, one plastic green gem, a golf ball sized wad of wrappers/stickers/???, and almost two dollars in coins. All caught up in the plastic strainer located inside the black rubber boot found on the bottom of the tub leading into the drain pump.
Here is how I did it: After emptying the washer of sloppy contents, I sucked as much of the water out with a shop-vac. I then turned the washer onto it’s left side gently using a couple of towels as a cushion (unplugging the washer and hoses first). From the bottom and back panel you can access the drain hose/pump/coin catch. With a pair of pliers you can remove the clamp holding smaller end of the rubber coin catch to the tub, with a Phillips screw driver you can remove the larger clamp of the rubber coin catch to the tub. From the back panel you again use your pliers to remove the clamp to the drain line, and finally with a Philips screw driver remove the two screws holding the pump to the bottom of the washer. Oh yah, do not forget to unplug the wire from the pump. Now pull the pump out with the black rubber boot still attached. Mark the orientation of the pump to the boot with a sharpie pen, and remove the last clamp. Now look inside the black rubber boot and gently remove the plastic basket inside, there you will find the treasures that just wasted the last hour of your time. Now reveres those steps, reinsert the half washed clothes, and enjoy your new machine.
Thanks again to everyone that has posted before me, otherwise I wouldn’t have known were to even start looking. I hope this helps someone.

you will have to remove the rear panel in order to remove the front panel. The bolt and clamp are inside the front panel.
