I have a frigidaire front load washer model number   FWT449GFS1. The unit will not spin or agitate. I checked the coin catcher and cleaned it out. NO luck, it started to spin then stopped and will not spin. It drains fine.

The door lock light is coming on. The door locks. The door latch seems to be perfect. Please let me know how to open the washer from the top and let me know how to access the spped control board. I would like to check the wiring to ensure nothing is loose before I spend the money for parts. Thanks again.

Thanks again,
