Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
My front loader washer will not fill with water. It starts to fill then stops after about 10 seconds
Check the water valve controlling water into your washer. For sure, this is close. Find out if this is
controlled by electrically operated valve or mechanically operated valve. For electrically operated, check the wiring going to the switch or power button, if this is still connected. For mechanically operated, check if the linkage connecting the valve is still in place.

The first thing to check is the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the opening on the water inlet valve and make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Test for continuity. A lack of continuity will mean a bad solenoid and the valve will need replaced.
If the inlet valve checks out alright, then the next place to look would be a malfunctioning water level/pressure switch. It is a diaphragm like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. Make sure there are no obstructions in or damage to the plastic tube. The switch can be tested for continuity in the same manner as the water inlet valve solenoids. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
