Frigidaire Gallery Washer GLTF530DSO
Drains fine but no final spin, clothes are soaking wet. Not the door latch, I tried to open door when it was on spin cycle, during wash cycle and before light went out. My research on here tells me it is the speed control board. Is there a way to test this? Can this be returned if it turns out to not be the problem? Is it hard to install? Where does it go? Please help.

... I tried to open door when it was on spin cycle, .

... Does it Tumble (Agitate) OK ? = Speed Control is OK
When it's in the Spin Cycle, un-plug Power Cord from Wall Outlet.
can you now open the Door right away, = bad Door Latch Assembly
OR only after a few minutes ?

And if the door switch checks out okay, then the problem is the motor control board ==> Motor Control Board

Door latch didn't fix problem, so I ordered the other part you recommended. Is there a video to install this?

That other part being the motor control board? ==> http://www.repaircli...mber=GLTF530DS0

Did you disconnect/reconnect all the wiring harness connectors on the door latch, motor control board, and motor? Try dat first. If still no love, then get the board linked above.

No video for replacement but it's plug n' chug.

Although your board may look different, you can see where it's located in this pic ==> http://www.flickr.co...dman/164419360/
Mouse over the photo for the annotations.

I did the first recommendation of putting in spin cycle, unplugging and trying to open door. Door opened right up. So I ordered the door latch, put it on, and it still won't spin. I ordered the motor control board. Waiting on FedEx to get here today. I am into this now for $230 dollars, not sure if I made the right decision to fix or if I should have bought a new washer. Whats the lifetime on this product, anyone know?

I wouldn't have asked ...
If it's not ON, the Dispenser Drawer Magnet / Switch may not be working

Sorry, I am a little slow today. I will go check. I do know that after I changed door latch, I put it in spin, unplugged and door would not open.

... t after I changed door latch, I put it in spin, unplugged and door would not open.

that's what I asked you a few messages ago...
then that means the old Door Latch Assembly was bad..
(your Washer may also have another problem)
