Thanks to those who posted the previous information, as I wouldn't have known where to start otherwise. I found the diagnostic tests mentioned and did them, and got an error code 47 (this wasn't showing up before, the only symptom was the washer stopped at the point the high speed spin should have started). Based on this code and what others had said, I ordered the lock assembly for about $40 delivered. In the meantime, we did the diagnostic test to manually do a high speed spin after a load of wash was done. The part arrived quickly and it was pretty straightforward to install, and that took care of it.

Another person had a similar problem replaced the door lock which didn't help and then had to replace the control board.
Model #= GLTF2940ES1
Frigidaire Gallery Series

I have read through all the posts and got pretty far, considering I don’t know how to fix much. I ran the diagnostics and got an error 47. I pulled the lock assembly out and tested for resistance and got an 1179. I am not sure if that means it is fine or if it needs to be replaced. I also tested the control panel and got the following readings:
J2=.5
J3=.455
J7=44.3
J14=273.7
J1=54.7
J4=I am not sure if this was reading correct or not. It would not give me a reading unless I put both black and red on the same prong. Then it only gave me a .2. I am not sure if it was saying OL since it didn’t appear to be reading anything.
J6=I couldn’t pull this out to get a reading so I just left it alone.

At this point, I don’t know what these numbers are suggesting. Please help me with getting the right part(s).

Hello. We have a frigidaire front loader. It's about ten years old.
It stop spinning. It will fill and drain but no agitate or spin
we called sears and the repairman said the motor was bad. Quoted me 390$ to fix but said it wasn't worth fixing and to buy a new machine. I ordered a motor online and installed it tonite. Still no spin???
so obviously the repairman was wrong

i am not electrically inclined but it must be either the control board to the left of the motor or the door switch
the motor control board doesn't look like its burned or anything
if I turn the machine on in the spin cycle, the light for “spin” comes on. If I push the knob in to pause, I can immediately open the door. It's not locked. Does that mean that my lock switch is bad? I do not have a voltage meter so I don't know how to check it by ohms

thank you

I'm sorry that your question was not answered on time.

These results are enough to say that the problem is a bad door lock assembly. No more tests required.

- The door lock assembly Part number: 131763202

Part number: 131763202



Although, it's probably too late to help you, I'm posting the answer anyway, so that it may help other people with a similar problem.

I have the same code E47. What did you find out it was for your washer? The control board or the door latch switch?
