Tip & How-To about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

ATF6000 front load washer will not drain

I have had my washer now for nearly 2 years. Recently we were having draining issues and getting the error. Looking at the book it says that there is a kink in the hose, which could be the case. I double checked that, then continued with the current load. The error continued to pop up after several minutes.
If the error continues after double checking the outside hose, then this might be your issue. Your filter is clogged with socks, undewear, change, etc. Yes it is unbelievable but true.
First unplug the washer. Try to get as much water out of the washer as you can as you most likely have water laying where your clothes are inside. Take the hose off of the back with plyers. Use a screwdriver to take off the screws in the middle section of the dryer(back side). I believe there might be 4-6 of them. Once you have the back off, look toward the front of the washer and you will see a black rubbery piece that connects a couple of different pieces. You want to take off the largest opening which will be the top right part(if you feel below that you will feel a hard piece inside that rubber part---that is the filter that has items clogging up the washer). Take a wrench that fits onto the bolt to losen up the neck(this is a little difficult as you will need to reach toward the front to reach it). Once it is loose, take it off. Be prepared there will be water in it, so lay a towel down below. You will feel the filter(hard piece). You can work it up and out. Clean it out and put it back in. Not much to it. May take an hour to do this the first time, but after you have done it once, it really is probably only a 20 minute job. I hope these directions are clear enough. Should save you a few bucks from not having to call a service tech

Intermittant 0E error


I believe the OE error is generated if it takes too long for the washing machine to drain. If the drain is blocked or the pump is is not functioning well, the error will show up intermittently. I believe we experienced a similar error a couple of years back. After verifying the drain was clear, I replaced the drain motor, I believe the washing machine was about 5 years old at that time.

You are experiencing a pump issue. Typically a professional is needed to :

1. Check the drain hose for restrictions. Restriction, correctproblem. No restriction, go to step (2).2. Start the washer and checkfor 120VAC at the drain pump.Zero, replace the Main Control Board. 120VAC, remove the pump and checkit for blockage. If blocked, remove the restriction, if not, replace the pump.

Samsung WF209ANW front load washer -- ND error code. I cleaned debris filter and all hoses, however it still will not drain. How can I tell if the drain pump needs to be replaced? Is there a diagnostic test I can run on the machine before I start ordering/installing random parts? Machine is only 2 years old :(


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

ND error in your Samsung Front Load washer indicates no drain issue. To start with check the drain hose for any clogs and try cleaning it, then check restriction in drain pump assembly or loose wire at the pump. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F35 error means that there is some sort of issue with the steamer electronic board and analog pressure sensor has gone bad. Check that the hose is firmly attached with the washer and is not blocked. You can also check the water level pressure switch operation. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
