Frigidaire Front Loader.
Ok, I have:
Replaced the door latch (worked for a few loads)
Cleaned the pump, hoses in, hoses out, all clear.
Replaced the time and motherboard.
Washer fills with water and will not drain.
Any suggestions? I'm at the end of guesses.

Yes, the pump works, hoses are clear and the washer has been working. Took another look last night and believe that the problem is the main drain. I live in an old house and the washer's drain hose is rigged directly into the main (nothing like the new plumbing). All hoses are clear until I get to an old junction and I think it is clogged there. Will do more investigation and check back.
Thanks for the help.

So, apparentlly, when the washer began working again, it pumped out a ton of crap into the drain-out hose that then traveled to a very strange junction in the pipe leading to the main drain. And, if the water has nowhere to go, the pump does not pump. SOOO, long story short, put the washer hose into the sump pump housing, everything working like a charm. Now, to figure out the re-plumb on the out-hose. Thanks for responding!
