Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
In the middle of a wash cycle, my front loader frigidaire washer made some grinding noises and quit working. We stopped it and started it again, it will move like it is washing, but no water comes in to fill up or rinse, it doesn't drain or spin. It just makes this humming noise.
I tried this but its not working, what else could be wrong?

You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. First set the washer to drain and spin. If you hear a hum or grinding noise and the water in the tub isn't draining or it's draining slowly you have something in the pump. If you take the rear panel off you'll reveal the drain pump at the right front corner or maybe middle on this model. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp (this can be tricky) attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. (you may want to have some old towels ready) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!

Hi friend, thanks for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer is not washing or spinning but everything else is working properly. I would advise you to check over the drain hose, make sure it is not restricted or too far down the drain pipe. If that checks out it could be a possible problem with your motor or control panel. One of those components could need to be replaced and for proper replacement I would recommend assistance from a technician to have a proper diagnosis completed. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.
First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.
Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.
