Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

While spinning; washer moves

When I put the spin cycle to maximum, the machine rocks and moves frontwards. My husband checked to make sure it is level. I thought the front load machines weren't supposed to do this.

My washing machine spins but does not drain, what could cause this?


If the machine is spinning as hard and fast as it should.... then I can only think that you have a problem with a plugged drain pipe.. (The one that the big hose in the back of the washer slips into.) If so, you'd need a plumber to help. Now, I'm assuming that you already know that if you end up having a severely unbalanced load, that it will kick out of the spin cycle prematurely, so that it won't shake itself to death... That would leave water in the machine.

I have a Maytag Atlantis washer that runs fine until the spin cycle. Once it hits the spin cycle, it gets very loud, like it's off balance. When we get the clothes out, they're still soaking.


make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine

Maytag lat6914aae top load washer shakes violently in spin cycle


A washer can have self leveling legs at the back. If they are rusty or clogged and not free to move, they will not self level and the machine will rock when working. Check the leveling apparatus, it's a bunch of metal pieces going across the lower back of the machine. Spray them with a lubricant and move them to make sure they are free.

LG Front Load Washer Problem


The washer is not leveled correctly.  You will need to adjust the front feet to level the machine.  Run a load of clothes in the washer.  When it gets to the spin mode, check the level of the machine by pushing the front left corner and the front right corner.  If the noise quiets down on either corner of the machine, adjust the legs on that side.
