I have a 2000 Stackable Frigidaire Gallery washer/dryer set in very good condition. The washer stopped agitating/spinning.  I went through the trouble shooting procedure found on the wiring diagram to rule out the motor. I replace the door switch. If I unplug it, remove & re-connect the wires to the motor as well as remove & re-connect, it will then go through one cyle of wash normally (agitaing & spining). And then it will not.  If i unplug undo the conncections & re-connect, it will work, for one cycle.  Is it probably the main circuit board?

Well, it turned out to be the motor...by spininnig the drum it would allow the contacts to be in a different position & it would work...sometmes.  I saw the motor arcing as it was under load.

Just for anyone trying to figure this one out.
