Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My 6 year old Frigidaire front load washer makes a lound banging noise during final spin. I have read a bunch of stuff on the net about it being really expensive to fix. I never noticed that the drum would 'wobble' before when I pushed on it, but it now does. Also, some clothes have come out with what looks like rust spots. Do I need to go shopping for a new washer?

A typical failure with your machine is that the rear tub seal may seep water into the bearings. Once moisture enters the bearings, they will quickly fail and cause the type of symptoms you mention. I would suggest purchasing a new machine as the repair cost can't be justified. Whirlpool / Maytag machines are very good and, at least relating to top loading, they are all made in USA. If you want a front loading machine made in USA, I would highly recommend the WFW94HEX model- Consumer Reports #1 rated.

Good luck.

Final high speed spin very noisey


Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

Frigidare front load washer has loud banging on spin cycle. After much work we reallized one shock was broken of which we repaced both now it still making the loud banging shaking motion. Also the washer...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Since the suspension is ok and it is level, check your drive motor and spin bearing. Usually, these are the trouble parts when loud noises are associated with the spinning cycle. Your drive motor controls the spinning. Since the noise is during spinning, that is probably where your problem lies.

Loud banging noise during final high speed spin


I have the HE3T which is 6 yo. Last week it started making a loud banging noise in the spin cycle. I had a repairman come out. He said it is the drum bearings. He said that it is a problem with these machines and to call Sears. He said that the drum and bearing is one assembly and that Sears should cover it.

I called today and Sears todl me that I have to pay for a Sears technician to come out a determine if it is indeed the problem. If so, it will be covered under the lifetime warranty on the drum. I have to pay for the service call $75.00 and if it is the problem, I will be reimbursed. Cross my fingers!
