If your motor is ok then check the belt. It may be damaged or crack. If it damaged then replace it.

Transmission is leaking or has broken gears. Remove the main access panel, and check the transmission

Timer may be not working properly you have to check the timer with the multimeter.

Check these things.

Change the washing machine's belt. I think it may be cracked or damaged.

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
