The pump may have an obstruction in it. It could be a coin or anything of that nature. The pump is located on the bottom front of the machine. If you have a removable panel on the front lower of the machine, remove that. There should be 2 screws to remove. There will be 2 hoses connected to the pump. Remove the hoses. (IMPORTANT...have a bowl or pan to catch the water otherwise it will go all over the floor...) There will be 2 screws holding the pump on. Before you remove the pump, turn the washer on so it will try to drain. See if the pump turns on. You will be able to hear if it is obstructed. After that remove the pump and look inside to see if anything is inside(ie.. coins ect.) If so remove them then repeat the process in reverse to get it back together.

I would suspect a faulty motor control board. not much you can do to test it unfortunately, aside to replacing it and see if that fixes the problem, but definitely the best guess. Also known as a speed board.

My washer will not drain the water and the spin-Model ATF6000FS1


I had the same problem but bought a new washer. As we were parting this washer out we found that there is a black rubber boot the attaches to the water pump. There is a filter inside of this boot and it was clogged with hair, string, and almost 2 bucks in change. No wonder it wouldnt drain. Check yours and see if thats your problem too!

Fridigaire washer that won't spin


Now remove the two screws on the front lower panel and pull the panel
in side you will see the drain pump if you did not have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps and clamp the hose line as close to the washer as possible.(but put down some towels as water always stays there) then pull the tub to pump hose by depressing the squeeze clamp(now while your at the auto parts id get a screw clamp to replace the spring clamp it makes putting the hose back on a lot easier)pull the hose off.Then pull the pump to drain hose off .Remove the two 5/16 in screws securing the pump to the washer base.Unplug the connector and remove the pump inspect the pump for foreign objects,broken or stripped impeller blades . if the impeller are stripped you will have to replace the pump then form the front of the washer take a piece of water hose with one end cut off and run it down the pump to drain end of the drain and reassemble the unit
