    How do I get the front panel off?

  • rs1185 Sep 15, 2009

    Need to know how to get the front off of the atf7000fs0 washer to replace the filter. The last reply was for a different machine. I see the two screws on the bottom as shown in the diagram supplied on the first thread, however, I do not see how to get the boot off or even if it needs to come off, whether there are other screws, etc? Does the control panel have to come off? Can this be done without having to pull the machine out or turn on its side, etc.??

    i beleive that this response and solution number two if for the wrong machine. Solution number one suuplied a manual for thecorrect washer. The second reply was for a different machine. My machine is about two years old, a stackable frontload and does not have a toe panel. The correct model number was supplied in the orginal request.

There isn't a filter on this model Frigidaire washing machine. If you are referring to poor drainage issues, you need to access and clean out the drain pump. This is a simple process. Just follow these steps:

1. Unplug washer.
2. Locate and remove the screws that hold the toe panel in place directly below the washer door.
3. With the panel removed, locate the drain pump. It is located directly below the washer tub near the front of the washer.
4. Remove the large rubber hose from the inlet side of the pump (Its much easier to remove this fitting rather than removing the end of the hose that is connected to the wash tub).
5. Inspect the rubber hose for debris and inspect the impeller area of the drain pump. It is common for small articles of clothing to get lodged in the hose and restrict the drainage. It is also common for small items such as buttons, toothpicks, hair braids, etc. to get lodged in the impeller.
6. Next, remove the discharge hose on the right hand side of the pump and also check this area for debris. Clean the hoses and pump impeller thoroughly and re-install everything.

NOTE: You may want to drain any residual water remaining in the wash tub and drain lines PRIOR to removing any drain hoses. An easy method is to use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain hose. This will pull any water remaining in the washer and avoid any messy cleanups. If you do not own a shop vac, be prepared by lying down some towels to collect any water.

NOTE: It does not take much to damage these small drain pumps. If the preliminary steps do not solve your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. The part number (if needed) is 137108100. Pcappliancerepair.com carries it for about $81.

If you are talking about poor filling issues, this may be an indication of a water inlet valve that has become clogged. Your inlet valve also includes the dispenser assembly. It can be accessed by removing the to panel of the washer and locating where the fill hoses are attached. The sediment screens in the valve can become clogged from sediment and rust over time. You can clean the fill ports by turning off the water supply and removing the fill hoses. Check the sediment screens inside the inlet valve and/or the fill hoses and clean with distilled vinegar to remove any sediment build up. If cleaning the valve does not solve the problem, a replacement part number is 134371220.

If you have any questions about these procedures, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    For clarification: The screws that hold the toe panel in place are along the bottom front edge of the panel. There should be one screw on each side. Remove the screws and the panel will drop down, then come off.

    You are correct. I apologize for my oversight. When I reviewed the parts drawings it appeared there originally was a toe panel. Most of these small Frigidaire front loaders have a toe panel. Upon further review, I was wrong. You will need to remove the top panel of the washer, followed by removal of the front panel in order the access the drain pump. This will incude removing the rubber door bellow from the door facing to get the front panel free. If you have a dryer stacked on top of the washer, it will have to be removed in order to service the washer.



    Futhermore, upon review there is a small strainer basket inside the large inlet hose of the drain pump. You will need to remove the connection from the wash tub in order to get the strainer out to clean it. Again...I apologize for any confusion.

    It appears you will have to remove the control panel to access the top screws to the front panel. The door bellow, I believe, is glued in place on this model. It can be removed by inserting a putty knife behind it and carefully peeling it off the door facing (it can be resused). Reinstall using applaince cement to reseal. You can also use a good marine adhesive that is water resistant - do not use super glue. With the bellow removed from the door facing, push it inside the machine and disconnect the door latch connector(s). You may also want to remove the door. Remove the lower screws on the front panel, and it should come off, exposing the washer interior cabinet.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. You can access the drain pump filter by following the procedure--
1. Disconnect the washer from the electrical supply, remove the front access panel.
Note: Some water will be left in the hoses and pump.
2. Disconnect the inlet sump from the pump.
3. Disconnect the outlet hose from the pump.
4. Remove the (2) screws, one on each side, holding the pump housing to the washer base.
5. Unplug the wires from the pump motor.
6. You’ll be able to see the pipe connected with the drain pump and next to this is drain filter. You can check this link for drain filter(Part #40)—

Filter replacement for frigidaire gltf2940es


Hello - The error code "E20" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

Frigidaire Front Load washer will not drain nor spin? Help! Washer will start and water will enter unit, however clicking occurs and no spin of clothes.


Hello,

Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.
