Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
Hello - I suggest trying the following steps: 1. Unplug the unit. 2. Tilt the unit up to where the front feet are in the air and the back feet are still on the ground. Please make sure the unit is propped up safely. 3. Now that the unit is propped up look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap. 4. Clean the drum out with as much water as possible and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out. 5. At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum. 5. Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out. 6. Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards
If proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Testimonial: "Thank you! This is exactly what I needed. Now I can finish the job myself!"
You need to check the drain filter, which is directly connected to the pump. That is the place where you usually find blockage. The filter or coin trap is located inside the drum. See the schematic below:
If that is not enough, then the drain pump access is located in the front side of the machine, hidden behind the trim at the base. The kick panel is held to the washer's frame by screws:
After removing the panel you will Be able to access the pump. Have a container ready to collect water that will come out through the hose.
DISCONNECT POWER before starting the job.

SOURCE: We pulled our stacked washer
Hi, I got a samsung WA85B5 washing machine running for nine years already, but last week the electronic mulfunction in such a way that when the power plug is turn on, the electronic turned on automatically without pressing the 'power' button and non of the button on the panel works. I installed a new circuit board today but ends up a different problem. After I plug in the power I press the 'power' button and the LEDs light up, all the other buttons function properly ( delay timer, water level, function,course) except the 'start' button. After setting everything it refuse to start. Please help. Thanks in advance. Yip

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It is possible that there is a drainage problem.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Tips for a great answer:
You first of all need to
check the pump filter. This is
located at the bottom front right of washer. Look for a drop down flap or cover, once
located, unscrew filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean. Of course be prepared for a lot of water and
junk. The pump itself is directly behind
the filter housing, check there to see if anything is stuck in the plastic blades. It should turn freely. Your washer door will not open if there is
water in the washer, just some kind of precaution, so don't force the door.
Pl click if helped..
