Question about Frigidaire Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer

Open Question

My door will not shut on our Frigidaire ATF8000FS1 front loading washer. The latch is below the locking mechanism. If I lift the door up it will latch fine. Is the door height adjustable? How do you raise the door or do I need a new hinge? I have 3 screws holding the hinge onto the washer but I cannot tell if these are the 3 to remove to raise the door. The screws are on very tight and I do not want to strip them if they are not the correct ones to adjust the height

SOURCE: Frigidaire Front Load Washer won't Spin

i fixed mine about 5 times and its always some thing diffrent.
try buyng the inexpencive parts first and leave for last the electronic control panel.
it could be that your washing a smaller amount than the recomended.
Take it to a profesional. dont do like me a DIY guy. Some times i need to take pictures when taking the monster appart and then because they are somany screws missing duct tape, rope or hangerwire becomes usefull.
All mechanics are wise guys you and me are thevictims.

SOURCE: how do you adjust a door on an frigidaire front

Many of the Frigidaire FL Washer doors have issues with the hinges. They break and then sag. This eventually results in the latch going bad. I don't have a fix for that other than replacing. If anyone else has a fix, please chime in. I've seen this alot...

There is next to no adjustments so if the door dropped then the hinge must be bent . You may be able to very gently pull up on the door and re-align it but most likely you will have to replace the hinge.

Frigidaire washer door

Hi Ryan C - From what you have described since you have already replaced the door lock assembly, you may possibly have a communication error with the control panel not responding.

The door on my fridgidaire atf8000fs1 sags so it doesn't shut correctly. I've had to order a new door striker since the last one broke off. How do I adjust it so it hangs correctly?

Frigidaire washer door sagging so strike and door lock not lining up correctly. After a period of time front load washer doors tend to start to drop below normal position. The glass in the front doors are very thick, heavy and only supported by plastic inner frame. This combined with continued opening and closing will over time make your front load door start to sage. Fortunately Frigidaire makes a door shim kit for this problem.

After you have ordered and received the shim kit part #137309800. Start with removing the three screws holding the door to the machine. Lay the door face down on a soft surface as to no scratch the front of the door and glass. Remove the screws securing the outer frame and with a very small flat screw driver shim it between the inner and outer panels. Make sure to note the position of the frame and glass. Next remove the inner plastic frame, you should have access to the hinge at this point. Install the shim kit according to the instructions that come with the kit. Reinstall the hinge, inner frame and screws. Install the door back onto the washer, your door strike and lock should line up in the correct position at this time.
