Frigidaire washing machine pump is making noise

I want to check to see if there is lint or something in the pump hose on my frigidaire front load washing machine. I cannot reach the hose from the back panel and I can't figure out how to get the front, bottom panel off. It is separate from the door, and I can slide a screwdriver in between the panel and the body of the machine.

Remove two screwn on bottem of front lower panel. Clamp hose clamp on large hose leading to front of pump assymbly, twist back and fourth the hose while pulling back to remove hose ( some water may flow if pump is not working right) Once the hose is removed you can see into the pump turbine and move it circular with a small screwdriver to see if it spins freely. I had this same problem and found a bobbie pin stuck partially into the pump. I removed the pin and everything works like new.

HELLO there are 2 screws which hold the FRONT bottom panel on..you must remove these to get the front panel which pulls DOWNWARD to remove. First raise front of machine remove two screws..a HEX screwdriver does not work good..they are a special type bit to remove..I think its called a star..good luck..you can easily see the pump and hoses..DISCONNECT all power first, and unplug machine before working on it.

My frigidaire affinity atf 7000eg0 will not spin


Hello starrz8 - Is the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose or pump is clogged and needs cleaning. If not, then the unit may possibly be experiencing an issue with the control board not communication correctly, faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or something more severe like a damaged tub. I will personally recommend contacting a certified technician for a proper diagnosis and to move forward accurately.

Frigidaire front load washer LTF2940FE0 wont drain


That loud noise is most likely debris bouncing around inside your water pump. Pull the 2 hoses off and try removing it by hand, or un-bolt it from the floor pan and tip it sideways to shake any small objects out. I found a mans wedding ring in there once.

Something is stuck in the pump. Remove the hoses and remove the items. It will probably be a coin.

Turns on makes weird humming noise


The noise is most likely your drain pump trying to clear water from the sump area. If you remove the bottom screws holding the lower access panel in place, look for the drain pump and a block rubber hose connected to it. I suspect there is something preventing the pump from draining all the water. Remove the clamp holding the hose to the pump (have towels handy as there will be water) and clean out the sump, then put it back together and give the washer another try.

Frigidaire front washer has power but won't fill up, drain or go through correct cycles


You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. First set the washer to drain and spin. If you hear a hum or grinding noise and the water in the tub isn't draining or it's draining slowly you have something in the pump. If you take the rear panel off you'll reveal the drain pump at the right front corner or maybe middle on this model. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp (this can be tricky) attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. (you may want to have some old towels ready) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!

Front Loader Frigidaire will not drain model no. LTF530FSO


check to make sure all hoses are not clogged - our washer hose before the pump was clogged due to washing a rug that had deteriorating rubber backing - would not drain until I flushed out the hose that goes from the tub t the pump.
