Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
It looks like the drum has droped down about an 1/2 inch makes a loud shaking noise, springs are not broke !
You will need to get the bearings replaced. Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Tips for a great answer:
Vibration and clunking can be caused by a number of things,
In this case though, first check the bearings at the back of the drum, if the drum is wet and theres a grinding noise major fix.
check the concrete blocks are tightly bolted on and there are no broken springs on the machine.
Check the belt and motor tensioning.

It is so common that the washing machine can make
terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is
important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the
identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is
vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be
inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it
is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually
turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the
drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which
include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be
in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the
mounting is also very important. Finally
in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve
