Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
From what i have read about the frigidaire front load washers...the bearings and spiders fail which causes the drum to come loose and bang around. it seems like a common problem with them from all the problems i have been reading.
well the same loose drum and banging noise has happened to me with my frigidaire front load (unknown model number)...what are the chances that the spider and bearings are actually the problem...should i bother to call in a service guy? from what i have read it will cost at least 450 to fix...at that rate i might as well purchase a new unit for 600ish...if i do decide to get a new unit is there a brand that you recommend? thanks...
hello, your problem is that your shocks are bad and need to be replaced. you can access them by removing the front lower panel. make sure you unplug the washer first. you will see 2 of them on either side of the tub. i belive you can twist the upper portion and then remove the bottom screew and remove the shock. of course before you start you should have the new shocks. and make sure their is no water in the tub.

ouch!! can you "lift up " on t he inner drum with a movement of 1 inch or more??? if so sounds as if you needa rear bearing assy. dont know how old machine is, but genearlly if parts not covered its not a worth while repair. will run hundreds of dollars

I have the HE3T which is 6 yo. Last week it started making a loud banging noise in the spin cycle. I had a repairman come out. He said it is the drum bearings. He said that it is a problem with these machines and to call Sears. He said that the drum and bearing is one assembly and that Sears should cover it.
I called today and Sears todl me that I have to pay for a Sears technician to come out a determine if it is indeed the problem. If so, it will be covered under the lifetime warranty on the drum. I have to pay for the service call $75.00 and if it is the problem, I will be reimbursed. Cross my fingers!

Does the loose brace end look broken or like a bolt fell out of it. If it has the missing bolt appearance, look for parts on the floor of the machine. Look for where it was attached and re-bolt the part. If it was welded, it will require the same to fix the problem. Not a usual DIY fix.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello gen0313 - From what you are describing it sounds like the unit could possibly have a broken shock/bearing or damaged tub. A certified technician will need to accurately diagnosis the bearing and pulling system behind the drum for repairs.
