Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
The leak seams to located at a seam where two sides of the drum have been joined . I tried tightening the bolts that hold it together to no effect. I am afraid of stripping them out of the plastic by overtightening them.
Yeah, this really sucks but you need a new drum. I ran into this many times while working for Sears as a repair man. If you don't have a warranty on the machine you are better off buying a new one as it is very expensive. More then the cost of a new washer. It is a pain to change out the drum too, it takes two people as it is so heavy and awkward. You can tighten those screws and it isn't going to help as it is the seal inside. The only problem is you can't just replace the seal, you have to replace the whole drum. If you have any other questions let me know and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, glad I could help you out though.
