Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
My machine stopped spinning and now makes a humming sound. I was told to lighten the load and it still makes humming sound. Water still in washer. Could someone help me please?
Your symptom sounds like a jammed drain pump. Was it spinning and then stopped before the spin cycle should have ended or did it not begin spinning when it should have?

sounds as if theres something stuck in your drain pump, youll need to remove the lower acess panel(2 screws across the bottom front of unit) you'll see teh pump in the rigth hand corner. i would remove as much water as possible before trying to remove the hose to the pump or you will get soaking wetaferer removig the hose youll be able tro see what trapped in oyu pump preventing free draining.. VERY common problem.DISCONNECT POWER THE DRAIN PUMP IS ALWAYS LIVE!!!!!!!!

Can you access the location of you motor?
try to open the back and unscrew the cover and see if you can see the motor, try to start it but don't get near to much just enought to see if it is moving or not.
if it still running and rotating see the belt maybe it is too loose or maybe it is to tight,
But if it just humming, turn it off and unplug, see if you can rotate the motor with your hand, if you can then you'll need a starting capacitor, you got to buy one and install.
But if it is hard to turn even without a load, then you'll need to bring your motor to a service center to check for the bushing and shafting and lubrication.
your motor winding is still ok since you heard a humming sound, that problem would be the mechanical part.

more than likely the pump is clogged if you pull the the washer out away from the wall and then lean it back to get under it there is a hole to access the under side you can reach through to the pump then disconnect the large hose that goes from the tub to pump reach down inside of this hose remove the cup that has debris in it and clear it out remove the debris and reassemble the washer
