My 4 year old machine model # FWT647GHSO has stopped moving cycles.  The timer moves ahead, but it only washes.  It will not go into drain and then spin.  I think this happend when the power went out in the middle of a cycle.  I tried unplugging it for 15 minutes in the hopes that the computer would reset.  I have tried running it through full cycles, but it only keeps on washing never letting new water in, draining or spinning!

What should I do next?

Remove the front panel, take the suction hose off the pump and remove the coins and bobby pins from the pump impeller. Good to go.

Drain but no-spin is a totally different problem. That's either gonna be the door latch assembly or the speed control board.

Lock light comes on and tapping the door at the latch area doesn't kick it off? Probably looking at replacing the speed control board. Remove the front bottom quarter panel and get the tech sheet. It has a procedure for testing the motor and speed control board.

Most of the time, these problems are a bad speed control board. If you order a new one from this link and it doesn't fix it, you can return it.

I'm trying to check this out on my machine, but I can't get the hose off the pump. (Just to verify--in the picture this hose is fastened with a red clamp, right?) I did manage to pry the clamp that fastens the "coin catcher" thing and, of course, dumped water all over the inside of the machine--however, there does not seem to be anything choking off the water flow in this area. Is there some trick to this that I'm missing? Thank you.

The suction hose IS the coin catcher thingy. Sounds like you already removed it.

similar problem here at my house...my washer keeps stopping and starting through its cycle....realized today that when you push on the door it starts again.  the door lock light remains on all the time....what part do i need to replace?  the whole door lock/latch kit assembly with the wiring and everything?  or just the door lock/switch assembly?

What is your model number? With some of the older ones you need to replace one of the counterweights and some of the harness needs to be rerouted, it all comes as a kit with good instructions. Did you make sure the piece attached to the door is not broken?

model number is FWT449GFS1...the piece attached to the door (the prongs that go into the latch) is not broken...i replaced that last year and bought a spare one.....the counterweights you mentioned...is that a cement block?  does it need to be removed before the actual door latch/switch/lock can be removed?

The piece you need is 131888900 which comes with the new counterweight, door lock and harness. You will need to remove the old counterweight and replace it with the one in the kit. It can all be done from the front of the unit.

I'm chasing a similar problem with my Frigidaire (FWT449GFS1). Drains but won't spin. I started walking through the diagnostic, and got only to step 2: I removed the belt and pulled the knob. The motor runs. It says to check the timer line switch and door lock switch...all wires seem to be in place, and not rusted. Pushing on the door doesn't make it spin. Is there some way for me to tell which of these is the problem? Should I order a new door lock unit, or is there some test I can do on these parts to prove they're broken before I replace them?

Thanks in advance.
