Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Drum came loose on Fridgedaire front loader on final spin cycle.

While washing a normal load of clothes in my Fridgedaire front loader that is only 4 years old it starting making a very load banging and clunking noice on the final spin cycle. The door was locked shut and sprung. The drum on the inside was dented in the back all the way around from the stress of no support. This machine has had very little use in the 4 years since it is only my husband and I at home to use it. I guess you get what you pay for. We won't purchase anymore Fridgedaire products.

What was the point of posting this on the site?

The drum has broken loose from the support plate at the rear

You need a new drum and a support plate plus probably an outer shell.

A complaint to the manufacturer may get you a deal on a replacement

Final high speed spin very noisey


Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

Drum is loose in machine and swings forward and back. Clothes are still very wet after final spin.


the rear struts have come loose and need re tension this will cause the barrel to come loose due to the barrel not being centered it will not spin at full cycle vortex and leave the cloths some what wet you need to take the top and back covers off and re tension the struts and make sure all 4 springs are well attached..


best of luck

I have a Fridgedaire Gallery front loader, was making a loud banging noise on spin cycle, now the whole drum has dropped! help!


The symptoms that you describe sounds like the spider arms that support the drum are broken. It is a very expensive repair. Get a few estimates, before deciding whether it is worth repairing or replacing. Sorry.

Loud clanking noise during spin cycle. Will not


If it is a front loader, then remove the rear panel, remove the belt, and soin drum by hand, if it feels rough, or is noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed.
This is a major repair.

Ariston front loading washing washing


Believe it or not.....its almost always the cloths ( heavy blankets) that one places inside.
TRY:: In the spin cycle if the load is unbalanced the TUB will rock and make that "loose drum out of alignment" noise. STOP the machine and open the door ( IF IT IS A TOP LOADER ) realign the cloths (heavy or more then one blanket) so that it is EVENLY spaced through out the tub.Start the machine again.If it does it again, stop the machine and REALIGN the cloths (blanket !!) again.
p.s. there is a simpler way of doing it but I don't want you to loose your hand in the process.
