Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
Ok guys.. Woman needs to fix washer. I took the back off, and the belt is as tight as a drum skin, and looks as new as the day it was made, 10 years ago. It is a Frigidaire Gallery Model number FWTR647GHS0. The latch seems tight, but the washer drum will not turn. It does everything else, without a problem. It hums like it should through the spin cycle, without any unusal sounds. I have checked for coins. Nothing smells "odd". (no burnt smells, or unpleasant smells, like coins leave) What is the likelihood that it is bushings, or a clutch? Help! I'm ready to start beating on it with a coke bottle! :)

SOURCE: load noise in final spin cycle
turn the tub on the inside if it feels ruff as it turns and makes a noise then most likely you have a bad rear bearing, if it is smooth in turning and no noise then turn to drain or spin possibly something stuck in drain pump. the drain pump will start up first if you hear the noise then the drain pump is accessed from the front lower cover, if its the rear bearing probably not worth fixing about 400.00 in parts and alot of work.

Be certain that nothing got under the rubber skirt, pull it back and look /feel under it .
inside the tub are the large wiper arms solid and not come loose.
open the top access panel (3 screws in top rear )
and open the bottom access Panel (3 screws in bottom front)
Dissconnect power .
Look at the springs and arms that attach to the tub are they secure.
is the large stone concreate slabs secure.
move all these items and push at them all secure?
you can run it while open but the bottom has a switch on front right that has to be closed.
look watch listen.

you can't really tighten a belt, I suggest that you change it, although it is extremely hard to replace a a new belt yourself. Have you checked the carbon brushes in the motor do not need changing, this could also generate a burning smell and leave you clothes wet if they are worn.
