Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

When I started the washer, the water would not shut off. It continued to run into the washer until the door popped open and flooded the room. The water continued to run even after shutting off the cycle and unplugging the machine. The water had to be shut off from the wall to get it to stop.

The washer continues to fill until it flood out

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF6000ES, continues to fill with water until it floods out. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at the circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power has been restored, select any cycle and start it. If your washer is still overfilling and flooding out, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing it to overfill and flood. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

As I turn the unit on, it sounds like the dishwasher is starting but no water is being dispensed. Any thoughts?


The most likely reason is the float switch (anti-flood protection system) has been tripped and the noise you can hear is the drain pump running continuously despite the washer being empty. If this noise continues even with the door open, it's definitely the float switch. This could be a faulty switch, a stuck float, or water may have leaked into the bottom of the machine below the tub.

It would help if you could specify a model number as the flood-protection components vary between models. If you don't know the model number, you should be able to find it laser-etched at the top of the stainless-steel inner door.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please specify a model number and whether the washer seems to be "running" with the door open.

Regards, BElectric

My washer is 7 years old. During a wash cycle, it overfilled so much that the door opened and flooded the laundry room. After turning it off, the machine continued to fill. My guess is that there is a fill...

Hi, just read about your problem. Need to have you go to the bottom of front of washer. It may be visible or you may have to take kickplate off. Position pan underneath filter. Slowly turn counterclockwise and water will start to come out. When pan is partially full, empty. Repeat until no more water comes out. Unscrew and remove filter and clean. Reinstall. Other possibility is a bad pressure switch? Hope this helps.

Unable to open door

You will have to pop off the panel on the bottom right of the front of the machine. Inside you find the pump. You will have to make the pump work manually (Look out for the flood.) Once you have drained the water, then the door should open.

Water not shutting off to begin wash cycle flooded room

Probably one of the water cut off solenoids not shutting off.
Do you use both hot AND cold water?
Try using only cold water first. If that works, maybe hot water solenoid is faulty.
Next, connect cold water to the HOT inlet, and try it again. This means you have now tried each of the solenoids, and maybe identified which one is faulty (assuming thats the problem!). If water wont cut off after trying this, the problem will be with whatever level sensing device it has, but I am not familiar with the model you have, so cant help there. Good luck.

Water overflow

Are you on a well? Often people with a lot of sediment in water get sick of the screens in water valve plugging up so they remove them. NEVER remove these screens. If any sediment gets into valve it can hold it open causing flooding. If you unplug unit and water still comes in you must replace valve.
