Don't think the tub can be removed with any ease!
Best thing to do is fill with warm water let it soak and try to remove the paper first. Finish running empty after removing as much of the paper that you can.

How do you get mildew out of the inside lip of the frigidaire affinity?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are trying to get mildew out of the inside lip of your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF6000ES. I suggest following the cleaning suggestions I've listed below.

Clean the Dispenser Drawer Area. Detergent and fabric softener may build up in the dispenser drawer. Residue should be removed once or twice a month.

    1)Remove the drawer by pulling the drawer out until it stops.

    2)Reach back into the left rear corner of the drawer cavity and press down firmly on the lock tab (left rear portion of the drawer). Pull out the drawer.

    3)Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments.

    4)Rinse the drawer and inserts with hot tap water to remove traces of accumulated powders and liquids. Large amounts of fabric softener residue may indicate improper dilution or more frequent cleaning is required.

    5)To clean the drawer opening, use a small brush to clean the recess. Remove all residues from the upper and lower parts of the recess.

    6)Replace the insert pressing the "X" to lock it in place. Return the dispenser drawer.

    Clean Inside the Drum

      1)Remove items from your washer as soon as the cycle ends. Excess wrinkling, color transfer, and odors may develop in items left in your washer.

      2) Before cleaning your washer interior, unplug the electrical power cord to avoid electrical shock hazards.

      3)Dry around your washer door opening, flexible gasket, and door glass. These areas should always be clean to ensure a water tight seal.

      4)When extremely soiled items have been washed, a dirty residue may remain on the drum. Remove this by wiping the drum with a nonabrasive household cleanser. Rinse thoroughly with water.

      5)Periodically, wipe dry the bottom of the flexible gasket to remove lint and other debris.

      6)The plastic drum vanes may become stained from fabric dye. Clean these parts with a nonabrasive household cleanser. This prevents dye transfer to future loads.

      Another thing you may do after a thorough cleaning is run a Heavy Duty cycle, and change the temperatures to the hottest temperatures. Also, change the soil level to Heavy Soil. You will want to run a full cycle with no clothes in it and add bleach and your detergent. Once the cycle has completed, Wipe down the inside of the tub as well as the inside lip of your washer. Leave the door open so any other water that might be inside of your appliance can evaporate. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

      -Best Regards-

How to clean a wash machine

Regularly clean the top and door of the washer to prevent the buildup of dirt and detergent. When you wash very linty materials, remove lint from the tub after removing the laundry. Soap deposits may cause laundry to smell bad. To solve this problem, fill the tub with water and add 1 pound of water softener or 1 gallon of white vinegar; then run the machine through the complete wash cycle. If the deposits are really bad, wash the inside of the tub with a solution of household ammonia and mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe the tub with liquid bleach. Caution: Rinse the tub thoroughly before wiping it out with bleach. Ammonia and bleach can combine to form a very dangerous gas.
Finally, run the machine through a complete wash cycle before you put any more laundry in.

I put dishwashing liquid soap into my front loading washing machine, UGH!!!!! What should I do? The suds just won't stop!!!! Help

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. As you already know, this is a bad idea. Now, there is probably soap in the entire system. After a few runs they should clear up. I would suggest cleaning the tub out with a towel. I would say they are probably in your pump also. You will probably need to clean your pump out also. It is located inside the washer so it involves a little bit of work. Clean out your dispenser as well. Try not to use water. Just use a towel.

Dirt spots in clothing

Without knowing the model number of your washer I will not be able to provide any model specific information. You did not indicate the size or shape of the spots. If you use cold water wash and rinses regularly it may have an accumulation of un-dissolved detergent, dirt/grime and body oils stuck on the inside wall of the outer tub. When washing using Hot water, it is causing some of the accumulation to break loose in small clumps and re-depositing on the clothes.

When this happens, the basket normally must be removed in order to scrap and clean the accumulation from the inside of the outer tub. Also, make sure to clean under the agitator when you remove it. Here is a video to show you how to get to the outer tub.

I have a WM2277HS TROMM Washing Machine and at the end of the cycle the water does not drain nor does it spin. Therefore, the rinse & spin cycle only rinses but does not drain the water nor spins. ...

Sounds like a bad lid switch. Check to see if you hear a "click" from the switch when you open and close the lid. If you do not, then you should replace the lid switch.

I have a strange odor

It is normal for all models of washing machines to have a gallon or two of water left inside the bottom of the washer and in the drain pump. This is not the cause of odor. The smell is being caused by residue left on the inside of the plastic outer tub.

The best way to clean a stinky washer is to use a washer cleaner that is able to be used with clothing in the washer. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the splash area 3-5 inches above the normal waterline. This splash area always has the worst buildup.
After the odor is gone you'll need to change washing habits to keep it away.

Kenmore 800 series washer stopped draining

If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here's the information you need to check the drain pump:


1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
5. Here's a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don't own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there's nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT - DO NOT FORGET!).
9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console - DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). "C00" will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.

NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.,wktwwdgrkbbfrdgxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/kstdgfskbxktqtggsqb/1/1303472/5961857/image64920img-or.gif
