Frigidaire FFFW5000QW Questions and Answers


#1 What may cause my washer to vibrate?

If your Frigidaire Top Load washer was recently
installed, here are a few things to check if your washer
is vibrating:The washer needs to be resting firmly on the
floor.
Check to ensure it is level (both front to back and side to
side), with each washer leg placed solidly on the floor.
You can adjust the leveling legs by simply turning the
legs slightly in or out until the washer is firmly on the
floor, then tight the lock nuts.
TIP: Leveling legs should not extend more than ½ inch
below the washer bottom.The washer needs to be
installed on a sturdy, hard floor. It is not recommended
that you install the washer on carpeting.Shipping
materials may not have been removed during the
installation.
Check your Installation instructions for more
information.
The laundry load may be off balance. Turn the power off
and wait for the lid to unlock. Redistribute the clothes
evenly in the washer.

#2 How do I clean stainless steel?

For stainless steel models, we recommend using
Frigidaire ReadyClean Stainless Steel cleaner. It
provides streak-free shine, protective coating repels
dust and dirt, and gently cleans tough stains. Wipe with
the grain to prevent scratching. Always follow the
manufacturer’s instructions when using.

#3 What should I do if my washer is draining slowly?

There are few items to check if you experience drainage
issues with your Frigidaire Top Load washer especially if
it was recently installed.
Check the drain hose – if it’s kinked, straighten it to
improve the water flow to the drain.Be sure the drain is
clear and not clogged.
The standpipe cannot be more than 96 inches high.If
the drain hose has been taped (or sealed) into the
standpipe, the seal should not be completely tight
because the standpipe requires air for proper draining.
You may need to remove some of the tape on the seal to
make an air path.Make sure the drain hose isn’t fitted
too tightly in the standpipe.
The standpipe needs to be at least 1 ¼ inches in
diameter.If you suspect your pump is clogged – you
may need to contact service.
Did you know…using too much laundry detergent can
inhibit draining? Always use the recommended amount
of detergent and do not fill any compartment in your
dispenser beyond the maximum amount line.

#4 Can I use Fabric Softener in my Frigidaire Top Load
washer?

If desired, you can add liquid fabric softener if your
washer has the fabric softener dispenser.
Remember to follow the fabric softener label
instructions by the manufacturer.
DO NOT use powder detergent in this dispenser.
DO NOT fill above the maximum fill line.
You must select the fabric softener option on your
display. If you experience fabric softener build-up in the
dispenser, simply use hot water to clean.

#5 How to change the options on my Frigidaire Top Load
washer?

To change the options, press the TEMP and SOIL level
buttons to scroll to the desired settings.
If you chose to deselect an Option just press the button
for that Option until it is no longer illuminated on your
display.
In most models:
To change your cycle, settings or options once the load
has started, you will need to press the POWER button
before selecting new ones.
Simply turning the cycle selector will not change the
selection. If changes are attempted after the cycle
starts, the lights will flash and a signal will beep.

#6 How do I care and clean my Frigidaire Top Load washer?

It’s pretty easy to take care of your Frigidaire Top Load
washer.
Here are some quick tips to get you started:
To prevent odors, promptly remove clothing from the
washer.Use a damp cloth or mild soap and water to
clean the top and sides of the washer.
Be sure to avoid moisture build-up.When possible, to
help prevent odors and humidity accumulation, leave the
lid open for a little bit of time or when not in use.
When washing heavily soiled items, shake or brush off
excess dirt or sand before putting in the washer. A dirty
residue may remain in the tub, simply wipe it with a non-
abrasive household cleaner, and then use the RINSE
ONLY cycle.

have a Tub Clean cycle (or System clean / Clean
Washer).
