How to change seal on atf6000fs1 washer

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know how to replace the seal on your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF6000FS1. Typically, this is not a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your appliance, and should be able to replace the seal with ease. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Door won't unlock on my ATF6000FS1

Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for allowing me to assist you!

I see that your Frigidaire washer (ATF6000FS1) door will not unlock. Sometimes, resetting power to your washer for about to 10 minutes does the trick. Once you turn on your washer, select a normal cycle and verify if the door will unlock. If not, your washer may possibly have a faulty door lock assembly, or a communication problem with the control board. You may want to connect with a local servicer who will be best equipped to pinpoint the problem. If you don't know a qualified technician, you can use the service locator option on the manufacturer site to find one near you.

Hello Michael - Thank you for your post! Let's try resetting the washer. This can be done by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit to the off position. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on the unit. Will the door lock? If the issue persists, then more than likely the unit is experiencing a communication issue with the control board and the door latch or the washer has a faulty door latch/lock assembly. In this regard, I would suggest contacting an Authorized Service Technician that will be able to assist you in the diagnosis of your appliance.

I have a Affinity frigidaire front load washer and need to replace part number 131763202. The model number of the washer is ATF6000FS1 Thank you in advance

Disconnect power then open the door and remove the spring-hoop assembly that secures the door gasket. Peel off the part of the door gasket near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel then pull the door lock and switch assembly out. Transfer the wires to the new door lock and switch assembly then install into place. Put the door gasket back and secure it with the spring-hoop assembly.

I close washer door but it wont go through cycle

Check to see if one of the two tabs on the door latch assembly are broken. If one is broken, replace the door latch. If the door latch is ok, you might have to replace the door switch and the door latch. To replace the door switch you have to remove the front panel. Remove the two screws holding the door switch assembly in place and drop the door switch assembly down into the bottom of the washer. Remove the wires and transfer to the new switch. Reach up and line up the new switch and install the two screws. Remove the two screws on the door latch assembly on the door, and remove old door latch. Install the new latch and replace the front panel. I hope this helps.

The door on my dishwasher will not close

There are a few problems that can occur with the diswasher door assembly. These usually involve the latching mechanism, the door seal, the counterbalance spring assembly or the hinges. 1) The door latch plate can occasionally become out of alignment. Some door latch plates are adjustable, some aren't. If yours is adjustable, try loosening the retaining screws and repositioning the plate. It's trial-and-error, so have a lot of patience. If this doesn't work, then the latch needs replacing.
2) A new dishwasher or a newly installed door seal can be difficult to close for a while until the seal softens and compresses over time. You can try adjusting the latch, if possible.
3) If the door feels unusually heavy, there could be a problem with the counterbalance spring assembly. These counterbalance assemblies allow the door to open and close easier and are held by two springs. On some dishwasher models, holes are positioned in line so you can re-tension the springs by moving the spring hooks to other tensioning holes. If any of these springs break, they will need to be replaced as a pair.
4) The door hinges might be bent. They can seldom be adequately fixed and should be replaced.
hope this helps

Will not start

That sounds like your door latch. In the door frame where the door is secured, you should see 2 black pieces in your door frame. The bottom one (square in shape) receives the pin sticking out from the door. The upper one (round in shape) should have a pin sticking out of it from the machine. This is the machines way of detecting wether or not the door is still open. If the pin gets broken off, the machine will not run. It is easy to get snagged when putting in or pulling out laundry. I have had customers who have simply found something to super glue back on so it functions like the missing pin again, however I don't recomend bypassing this as it is one of two systems that keep the machine from flooding your house if the door doesn't stay closed. Bluntly, if you can't jury rig it right, just replace it.

As far as replacement, remove the 3 #20 torx screws holding it in. Remove the clamp around the front grey rubber seal. (pring it off with a small, flat head screw driver works well. Pull around the edges and the seal will come off. Reach to the right hand side and you will feel your latch. Lift slightly up on it (there are 2 clips it sits in, then pull slightly toward you. There are 3 connectors that have to be removed (don't worry about the order, they all only fit back in 1 way). Push on the tabs that are holding them in to remove them. Replace the latch assembly with one you have purchased from the manufacture on line or from a local appliance parts store. (you will need the model number of your washer located in the door frame for this at either place). Now place the 3 connectors back in. Put the assembly back into the tabs inside. Re-attach the torx screws. There is a gap in the grey rubber seal that the metal lip of the washer sits in. Re-seat it. Now place your small flat head screw driver in one of the holes next to the spring on your clamp. Again, there is a gap on the seal it fits it to keep it tight. Work it back in keeping 1 hand on the screw driver and moving a round object (screw driver handle) around the edge of the clamp until it is seated all of the way around. You should be all set.
