Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Frigidaire uses way too little water

Is it suppose to use that little of water? I can't even see the water when I'm washing the clothes. There is probably only an inch of water in there when it is washing. Is there a way to have the machine add more water?

Most front loads use less than 5 gals to wash or rinse since most of this is absorbed by the clothes little or no water will be seen during wash action..as long as clothes get clean don't sweat it just be sure to use low suds HE detergents just remember that's why you bought the front load to save water and energy

FWX833AS1


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand when you wash your dark clothes in your Frigidaire washer, model# FWX833AS1, there is lint left on them after the wash. There are a couple of possibilities that can cause lint.

First, would be incorrect sorting, or possibly tissues left in a pocket. It could be overloading your washer or not using enough detergent. Try reducing your load size. Rewash the clothes using the correct water temperature, water level, and amount of detergent.

Secondly, could be that it is undissolved detergent leaving residue on your clothes. Try adding a nonprecipitating water conditioner to the wash water.

Thirdly, it could be static cling attracting the lint. Try adding fabric softener to the final rinse, if you aren't already.

Lastly, the load could have washed too long.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

No seems to be getting in, wash comes out damp n dirty


Is this a new washer or has there been a change in it's functionality?
Front loading washers do use very little water. One must be careful not overload them and also to be sure to use the detergent that is made for them. Can you see the clothes and water sloshing around? Try a small load with HE detergent and make sure to use the very small amount recommended and let me know if you still have a problem.

Smeared clothes


Hi!

You can look at this as to how lint/whitening from your clothes can be removed---

This is due to un-dissolved soap and is worst in a colder climate where the cold water entering the washer is much colder than normal.

Cutting usage to 1/2 of what it says will still wash good and also cut your chances of getting "whiting" on your clothes.

Over loading the washer is another cause: Even if the agitator is suppose to go back and forth, the clothes are not. If you can hold the lid button on your washer so you can watch the clothes wash, they should 'roll" in the basket and not go back and forth like the agitator. The clothes will go down the side of the agitator, across the bottom of the basket, up the side of the basket and across the top of the water in a rolling motion. Overloading is not just too many clothes but also too little water for the size of the load is another way of having a overloaded wash load.

Water temp is also important: Use a thermometer to test the temp of the incoming water in your washer. Hot water should be close to 140 degrees F.

Little water in Frigidaire front load washer


If the machine does not fill properly, it is usually because of a defective water level switch. This is also the cause for smelly clothes.

Frigidaire washer


hi mom,

could it be that these newer models now a days uses less water to wash clothes?

that is what they are boasting about.

energy efficient washing machines..less water more cleaning. ( at least that's what they say) specially on front loading types. not like the top loading where it uses a lot of water.

please check your owner's manual, it may be stated in there regarding water level of the new washer.


tnx 4 using fixya,

LG washer uses so little water, clothes aren't even damp and not clean


You will need to have a qualified LG technician come out and see what the problem is.  You may have a water level switch issue.

Damaging clothes


How long is the gentle cycle?. I prefer to make my own delicate cycle. I let the machine fill, agitate about 1 min. then turn off and let soak about 15 - 20 min. Make the machine pump out and start spin very briefly. stop machine. let fill up again and repeat to rinse. Don't let agitate for more than 3 or 4 min total wash and rinse don't let spin completely.
