...we've already replaced both the door latch assembly and the control board. The error code is for the door latch assembly, so we bought that part and replaced it, but still did the same thing - no final spin. Then tried to put in diagnostic mode and all the lights flashed and wouldn't let us start it. So...we got a new control board. Now it works, but still does not spin-the original problem. We tested the door latch assembly (the old one - the new one we ordered is still in the machine) and it reads 1700 ohms, telling us it should be functional. We assume the new one is good because it is new. We're thinking of testing the wiring next from the harness on down to see if there might be something faulty with the wiring. Any other suggestions?

... tested the door latch assembly ... reads 1700 ohms,
.... put in diagnostic mode and all the lights flashed

1) that's no a definitive test ... may still be bad
2) that's the error codes . which Lights are flashing.. how many times ?
here's the similar error code deciphering of a Frigidaire Washer

We did the error code decipher just the same as in the video, and came up with 43.

that's either a bad Door Lock Assembly
OR a bad Controller
OR bad wiring
While the Washer is in the Spin Cycle,
wait about 2 minutes..
Is the Door Lock Light ON ?
Is the Door really locked ?
If so, then un-plug the Washer Power Cord from the Wall Outlet.
Can you now open the Door right away,
OR only after a few minutes ?

Well, we replaced the door lock assembly, then we replaced the controller...that leaves bad wiring.

The door lock light is ON, the door is really locked, as in I can not open it once the cycle starts, but as soon as you hit pause or un-plug the washer cord you can open the door immedietely.

Well, the spin part of the cycle doesn't work...so we turn it to drain/spin, let it run for a couple minutes and pull the plug, and we can open the door. The problem is, all the signs point to a bad door lock assembly, so we got a new one, replaced it, and it continues to do the same thing. We then replaced the control board. It continues do do the same thing.

it would seem to be that the "new" Door Lock is defective ..
Any part ordered from RepairClinic can be returned for a refund (less shipping)
