Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Oil leaks on clothes

My washer made a very loud banging noise when it went into the final spin cycle.  When I took out the towels, several of them are spotted with black spots and some look like they have been smeared with oil.  Did something break?  Can this be fixed reasonably, or should we buy a new washer.  This is installed under our kitchen counter top so we need another front loader.  We don't know what to do.  Thanks!

How old is the washer and how expensive? It may be worth it to get an evaluation service call from a local appliance shop and if it needs to be replaced, the repariman may have recommendations.

How do I fix a ge top load washer that's making a loud banging noise while agitating?


There is either a balance issue or a damaged spring. Usually all you need to do is open the washer (make sure it is OFF) wait for it to stop spinning... then look for clothes bunching up on one side. Take some out ad move them around.
Sometimes putting in to many or too few items will make it harder to resolve. Items like large towels or several towels, sheets and such will hold more water and be heavy until the water starts to pull out.

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.

Loud banging


Several possibilities for noise. check concrete balance wieghts at top and bottom of washer, make sure they are not loose.
Check drum restraint spring(s) are not broken.
Check suspension legs for wear.
Check for loose motor fixings.
Finally, remove drum belt, and spin drum by hand, tjhere should be noise from bearings, if it feels rough or is rumbling , then main bearings have failed.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.

Final Spin Drum BANGS around--terribly frightening noise!


Check the spring that hold the drum in place. They are about 4-5 inches long on the top of the drum at about 2 and 10 o'clock. The springs suspend the drum and if broken the drum will bang around. About $40 to order springs online

Also check on the bottom at about 4 and and 7 o'clock because there are 2 shock absorbers that help keep the drum from just bouncing and bouncing with no end in sight. Again about $40 to change each one.

I am in the process of the first repair and doesn't seem too difficult. The second was done about 6 months ago and was not too difficult but was awkward because you had to lay on the floor to get the replacement pins in place.
