Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(this might not be the answer but try this!)
I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Tips for a great answer:
Hey Beverley, thanks for your post!
I see that your Electrolux washer is displaying the error code "ERR". Typically a number follows the "ERR" but if no number followed the "ERR" error code then your washer has detected an error. I would perform a reset on your washer which can be done by unplugging the power cord or flipping the household circuit breaker for roughly ten minutes.
If that does not help correct the issue it could be a problem with your control panel or wiring harness. I would recommend seeking out assistance from a professional in order to properly diagnosis and repair your washer. I hope this is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
