Question ?access to clean drain/trap?
Model Number: ATF8000FS   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Front loading washer is not draining so I suspect the drain pump and trap need to be cleaned out. Our previous model had an access panel in the front near the bottom of the machine, but this unit has a solid piece in front. A google search suggested a pretty complicated process to remove it including disconnecting the control console and removing the rubber boot. Any words of wisdom as to how to easily access the drain pump/trap would be appreciated.
Thank you.

A parts diagram for your model does not appear to be available on this site but is at: -
http://www.********************************.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-ATF8000FS2/1428/0153200?searchedModel= ATF8000FS&blt=
A service manual is available at: -
http://www.emaservicetips.com/pdfs/360_TumbleActionWashers.pdf

and on page 69 this shows how to remove the bottom panel.

One further thing prior to removing any clips on the drain pump/hose/filter system I use a ‘wetvac’ to suck out the system to avoid upsetting the better half because of minor flooding or heaps of wet towels/rags etc used to stem the flow of water left. All I do is insert the crevice tool into the end of the drain hose and close the gap with my hand.

Hope this helps please let us know how you get on.

Thank you for that information, David. The problem is that our machine does not have a service panel at the bottom to remove, which is what is indicated in the link you provided. Our machine has one piece in the front.
We have already used the wetvac to get the water from the drum, but will keep it handy for the drain hose if we can ever figure out an efficient way to get to it.

Looking at it again, I see your problem. It does look as though the results of your 'google search' were more accurate than the information I obtained. Sorry about that. Perhaps one of the more experienced technicians can offer something but, to me, looking at the diagrams, it looks as though the control panel has to come off to get at the two top screws and then the washer lain on its back to get at four screws at the bottom and then the boot would have to be removed from the front panel but not the drum and the wiring to the door latch and switch disconnected.
