Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
I have the dreaed E21 error... I have the Affinity 7000 I think. At any rate it looks similar to 6000... the problem is that the front panel which included the door is large... how do you remove it? (there are 4 screws on the bottom) Now, I imagine it comes off with the door, but there is a rubber gasket that connects the door to the drum to prevent leaks of course... does that come off? It was already replaced once and I remember the repairman had a hell of a time placing the new gasket one so I am a bit hesitant to take the panel off... anyone has any pcitures? CATRIVER? ( Isaw your earlier post with picture of the pump)
I have an affinity 600es.. and the same problem.. I went through it yesterday.. There is no bottom panel to remove.. the only way in from the front is to remove the entire front panel, which first involves removing the top, then the control panel section and the liquids dispenser.. I got part way through it that way, and decided I didn't want to cut all the tie wraps and what not to fully remove the fro panel/door section.. so I put all that together and titled the unit on it's side (pump side down).. there is a large removable access panel on the back, and an always open smaller access port on the bottom next to the pump... I had to work at it with one arm in through the back, and one arm in through the hole in the bottom.. because of those stupid hose clamps they use...
No matter what, you're gonna have to remove the dryer from on top of your washer.. I'm really pissed off at frigidaire for this design.. I think it's on purpose to force paying service costs.. if not, then the engineers are just plain stupid.. this is obviously a periodic maintenance thing for these washers.. why couldn't they make some sort of easily removable filter for the thing.. maybe where all you do is remove the large back access panel and then there is a filter unit that has a threaded cap.. so that you're not fighting to remove a bunch of impossible to get to hose clamps and cursing the whole time..
if designed with the consumer in mind, this procedure could have taken less time that it takes to disconnect the hoses and power to move the unit.. but instead, I missed the entire cowpokes/gnats game yesterday fighting this thing.. way to ruin my sunday!
I'm not an engineer, but if they're too inept to figure it out, I can show them what they need to do, to make this a simple procedure that any housewife can do! If they care a smidgin about their customers, that is!

There is NO WAY to remove front panel on the 7000 washer... the pump can only by accessed in the back... its a POS machine to begin with, forget about the service..

Hello markramos66 - An error code E21 commonly refers to the water in your washer is not pumping out fast enough. First, check the drain hose for any restrictions or kinks. If you have check the hose and it appears to be clear and free, then potentially the underlying issue may be the main control board or pump. Generally it is a good idea to have a professional take a look at it to get to the root cause. Cost of parts and technical expertise entailed in these types of replacements can be a bit tricky.
