Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a four years old Frigidaire FTF2140E which is a really good one. A few months ago it started collecting water in the softener compartment that I need to empty every time it finishes washing. I have a concern taking out and draining the soap compatment every time, and will appreciate your opinion/suggestions.

The fabric softener compartment in is full of water. I need to empty this manually prior to each wash . Many, many thanks. Judy


The fabric softener dispenser has to be purged between wash cycles to prevent residue from clogging it. What you are observing is normal operation.

Will not rinse well


Is the dishwasher leaving them soapy or dirty with food due to the no rinsing? If the problem is still dirty with food you can try some of the following tips.

Choose a cycle with longer washing time.

Avoid nesting items on top of each other or layering them too close together.
The home water pressure may be too low; it should be between 20-120 psi (pounds per square inch) which should be checked by a plumber.

The incoming water temperature should be at least 120F at the sink closest to the dishwasher before starting a wash cycle.

For heavy food soils always select HI-TEMP WASH option if available.

Check for water hardness. Water hardness can be determined by the local water supply company, water treatment company or via a water hardness test kit, which can be found at local part distributors or hardware stores. In areas where the water hardness is 12 grains or higher, some kind of water softening is recommended. For very hard water a home water softening system would be recommended.

Always use fresh detergent, the older the detergent (About one year) the less effective it is at cleaning dishes

I am looking to buy a used Frigidaire GLWS1233AS2 Top Load Washer and GLER331AS2 . They are supposed to be 3 years old. Are they good machines or do they have lots of problems?


Mine is 10 yrs old and I am just now having a problem. Clothes are too damp after last spin cycle. Hopefully, I'll get an answer here soon. Another problem I noticed a few months after I got it, with this model, is the fabric softener dispenser on top of the agitator. You have to remove it every single time and clean it. I added a little water to it before adding fabric softener and thought that would help to stretch the cleaning to maybe once or twice a week. Don't do it! I started to smell mildew and found out why. The agitator shaft that this dispenser sits on was caked with old fabric softener. I just use the blue Downey ball now. The fabric dispenser stinks but I have had 10 yrs of good washing.

My 13 year old step-daughter tried to add something to my Frigidaire FTF2140E Washing Machine while it was in the middle of running a load. It will now not start back up. I took the wet load out and remove...


It sounds like the door latch is not working correctly. As a safety feature the unit will not run without sensing the latch is locked. Check the male end on the door first. If that is not broken then you will need a new door latch assembly.

Washer doesn't dispense fabric softener


This can be either one of the solenoids in the dispenser has failed, the timer is not sending the signal to let the softener in, or the water is not circulating through the dispenser to flush it through. The water hose to the dispenser will occasionally plug up. Check the hose first, it's the cheapest to unplug it. ;-) Oh, I have seen the wires to the solenoids just simply come unplugged too.

Softner stopped draining out of the compartment during the rinse cycle. When I open the compartment after cycle stops, there is still softner in the cmopartment


try pouring really warm water in the compartment or using small soft toothbrush type brush to clean out the build up of softener. You might try thinning your softener in the future with water if it is very thick. this works for me

Front load washer frigidaire leaving small marks on clothes


I have twice taken apart this front loader Frigidaire washer (also sold as Kenmore) to replace the rotted out aluminum spider arm supporting the spin-basket (which seems to universally fall apart within 5 years), and now I started observing the described black stain pattern on the clothes. As with the spider arm breakdown, this problem has nothing to do with water hardness, softeners, detergents, or dryers (I line-dry all my clothes), and everything to do with the poor quality design of this machine. I have not yet positively identified the cause of the black stains, but I suspect that the bearing seal is breaking down and in the process is releasing greasy particles that mix with the clothes and create the described black stain patterns. Unfortunately the repair would cost more than a new machine for most people, as the spider arm is probably just about gone by this stage. I am lucky to own another junk washer for spare parts and am able to fix it myself. For skilled do-it-yourself mechanics, it is possible to find a replacement seal and bearings on the internet, assuming the spider arm is new (over $200 part), or still in good shape.

Fabric softener will not dispense


My wife reported the same problem and I took the top off the washer (2 screws at rear of washer and top slides forward) . Under the top on the left front side behind is the dispenser. On the top is a click adjuster similar to a clock hand pointer and in the center is a tick mark and off to the left side is (-) marks for reduced dispensing and to the right (+) marks for increasing dispensing. I moved the pointer all the way to the plus side and after a few loads the dispenser works fine. I assume over time the different fluids (fabric softener, detergent, etc) tend to gum up the valve mechanism. If this doesn't work I would try pouring some very hot water in it to try and loosen things up. After you try all the free thing, I guess the last option is a new dispenser.
