Hi, is the door lock light illuminated? If so, does the door open?
It opens while illuminated correct?
On the bottom right is a board. It's the speed control board. It's going to be the issue. It most likely will have a burn mark on it. You can access the board by removing the bottom two screws on the lower front panel. You will see the board on the back right. It's mounted with a screw and held in by a small slotted piece on the back. Removing the back is more work but makes it easier to see/replace the board. You can purchase the board from any local appliance parts house or sears parts. Also by Clicking Here

Yes, it's not cheap. The door lock is working since the door will not open. Take the top off and double check the connections on the timer. On the top right from the front the timer has two big plastic connectors. Make sure the drum did not loosen one of the connectors. If that looks good, the motor control board is going to be the issue. You can double check the motor connection as well. I've seen both the motor connection and timer connection cause this but 99% of the time the board is bad. I would not put $400 into this washer. You can buy a new one for about that.
I would not put $400 into a Frigidaire gallery front load washer. No way. Not worth it. Bearing issues, pump issues, to old to put that much into. You can get something comparable for $500 click here
Yes,I know these washers well. Were very popular back in the day. You will not buy another washer that lasts this long. I would not put $400 into this machine either knowing what I know and have seen..
Log back in. The question does not close. You've only paid the good faith part not the other part. We work on the honor system here.
Yes, test the plug in on the board for 110v when it should be spinning. Take it apart you'll see the tech sheet in the yellow envelope on the side.
Thanks you do the same.
