Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
A small bottle stop dropped into the soap dispenser and I was unable to retrieve it before it fell into the tube in the far back part of the tray. Is there a screen that will catch this bottle stopper before it gets into the pump or other parts of the washer? How can I remove the bottle stopper. It is about a 1/2" in dia. Thx. Steve
Try using a vacuum cleaner to suck the bottle cap otherwise fill the tray with water and when the cap starts floating you can take it out

Unplug machine from power, do not restart it until you get the plastic cap, as you can cause more damage.
Try first using a long stick to reach the object at the end of the drawer, inside the hose, be careful not to hole the hose or brak other parts inside the drawer.
If it does not come out this way, I am afraid you will need to take apart the back , and probably also the top panel.
You need to access the hose starting from the detergent drawer and ending into the pump, once the hose is lose on both sides you blow compressed air inside the hose.
If you do not start the machine the pump cannot be damaged.
If you start the washing machine with the object inside, in the best case it will malfunction because hose is obstructed. In worst case you burn the pump as the hose get obstructed.
If machine is less than one year old this maintainance can be covered with guaranty,
If you need to call in a repairman you can use the number listed at the end of the user manual.
