Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer will not spin, pump will not empty nor fill

I have an almost 9 years old Frigidaire front load washer. Part # fwt449gfs2 (sometimes also referenced as fwt449gf)
I checked the motor and the control board. Power doesn't seem to get to the speed control unit. I checked the voltage differential between c4.2 and c4.4 and it is null. I tested the motor protector and it was around .18 ohms (supposed to be .37).

I bypassed the motor protector to check for voltage differential (using pin 8 from the motor cable with pin c4.4) to no avail. So power is not reaching the control unit nor the motor.

Could the wax motor be at stake? What reading (resistance?) am I supposed to get out of a wax motor ?

    If the timer does not advance (on its own), does this mean the timer is at stake?

    Also, I do I know what step I am on the timer? Are there any indicators?

    pressure switch works only if I provide power to it. Power will not come from timer.

    so pressure works, water valves work, pump works but that was with power directly to the pump. I will have to test with a filled tub.

    Can I surely conclude it's the timer?

Don't have resistance for wax motor. It works or it doesn't. If the door locks with 120 volts to the wax motor it is working. From your checks you have the tech sheet out of the unit so I won't go take mine apart. Check the voltage fro the timer pins that the trouble shooting says to check. Also check the pressure switch. If it reads full it will not put power to the spin. That's not in the tech sheet.

    Sorry it took a whlie to get back to you. The notifacation systems for comments seems to not be working so I have to check every one. If nothing is working there are a few things that can cause it. The power comes into the timer and out to the unit when you pull the knob out. The power also has to go through one door switch to know the door is closed and then to a reed switch mounted behind the dispensor drawer. There is a magnet in the drawer front that makes that switch so if you have the drawer open the machine is dead. I'v only replaced two timers on Frg front loaders ever. i'm only positive one of those was bad.

Frigidaire Gallery washer won't produce final high spin

Hey friend, thank you for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer, FWT449GFS2 is not entering the final high spin cycle. It is possible that you could have a defective motor or timer. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend you having a professional come out to the home for the repair of your washer. -Matt

Describe your (ATF6000ES) Front Load Washer Problem it does not spin and its 9 years old

Hi twoofdkind,

Before the Spin Cycle should start, all water must be drained out of the machine. If it does not start, it could likely mean the Drain pump may be clogged. Please follow my below tip on the fix:


If this does not help, the drain pump may be faulty.

Kind Regards

Frigidaire front load washer not spinning

Unsrew the bottom panel and u will find the pump to the right disconnect the hose from the back thats coming down from the tub.You will find a pocket behind the hose connect filled with all kinds of change probably enough to buy a pizza and a couple of beers. I also had a old credit card,gas pass bobby pins,hard plastic tags.chains and a hand full of sand.
My Frigidaire frontloader is 9 yrs old was close to buying a new one but this defintly fixed the problem..

My frigidaire front load washer starts...then quits...

yes it could be but also it could more than likely be your pump not letting water out or not letting enough water out which stops the cycle try doing aload when it stops turn dial to empty and if it spins then your pump is faulty needs replcing thats the more common fault
