Frigidaire Front-load washer, will not spin on high speed, drive belt seems tight
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

A few quick questions so that I can narrow down your problem:

1. Does the tub still go back and forth during the wash cycle?
2. Does the washer still drain?
3. What exactly does the tub do when it should be spinning? Does it sit still and do nothing? Does it go back and forth? Does it spin slowly one directly but doesn't ramp up to high speed?

1 yes 2yes 3spins slowly one dirction but does not ramp to speed.
ok then that means that your motor control board has just failed and isn't going into high speed spin if the tub turns slowly one direction but won't ramp up. The motor control board is located under the tub and mounted to the floor. It will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue and it costs about $150 or so for the part.
