Welbilt ABM-6000

The Welbilt, ABM-6000 is a nice machine with modest features. However, it has one of the largest footprints we have seen in a bread machine. So make sure you have plenty of space.

We were unable to locate a price for the 6000. It has 5 main cycles with 29 variations. Main cycles include basic, rapid, wheat, French, and dough. The 6000 can make 1-1/2 and 2-pound recipes and you have crust color controls for light, medium, and dark.

The 6000 has a large view window, however as with most view windows in bread machines it is not that useful. The inside is so dark with the lid closed that you really can’t see anything.

The pan on the 6000 is an odd shaped horizontal. Moreover, it sports one kneading blade. The 6000 also includes a 14 hour timer. The timer allows you to have fresh baked bread when you get up in the morning or when you come home from work. The timer requires you to calculate the number of hours between the time you program the machine and the time you want the bread done. For example if at 8 pm you set the timer and you wanted the bread finished at 7 am the next morning you would set the timer for 11 hours.

For those of you that like to add raisins, nuts, herbs, etc. to your breads you will be disappointed in the lack of an add ingredients beep function. In addition, there is no power failure backup. Once the power goes out, that is it. You will have to start the process over again.

The 6000 does have a keep warm cycle that will keep your bread warm until you can remove it. This part of the cycle however doesn’t keep the bread from getting a soggy crust. It is advisable to remove the bread from the pan as soon as possible. Otherwise, the escaping steam from the bread will be trapped in the pan and make a soggy crust. You can however use this to get a softer crust. Just leave the bread in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove.

The 6000 doesn’t make a lot of noise. It seems to be about average in that department. We were impressed with the quality of the machine. It is well made and solidly built. We did find that most of the time the kneading blades didn’t stay in the loaf of bread. As for getting the bread out of the pan, we have not had any trouble with that they have all slid right out.

You get an average manual and there is no video introduction. You do get around thirty recipes, which gets you started.

When we test a machine, we make three types of bread. We make a plain white bread, a 100% whole wheat bread and a batch of dinner rolls. We always use the recipes that come with the machine.

The white bread tells us how the machine kneads and what the texture and crust is like. The 6000 made a very even loaf with a slight dome on top. It had what we consider a light thin crust. The inside was light, moist, and tasty. The bread rose to just above the lip of the pan.

The whole wheat bread tells us how well the machine handles heavy dense dough and whether or not it kneads it well enough to get a good rise. The 6000 made a slightly rounded loaf. The crust was a little thicker than on the white, but not bad. The inside was heavier than the white was, but not dense. It was moist and had a good taste. The loaf rose to the top of the pan.

The dinner rolls tell us how the machine does on the dough cycle. We used the white bread recipe for the dinner rolls. They came out great. They were light, moist, and golden brown.

Overall, everyone here was very impressed with the 6000. It performed very well. If you were looking for an entry level machine with a modest feature set this wouldn’t be a bad choice. The only glaring problem is the lack of an add ingredients function.

Purchase: The Welbilt ABM-6000 has been discontinued.

  • We bought a ABM6000 from a friend but had no recipes or operating manual.

  • Hello again to all of you…alittle red in the face…I tried the 800# and it gave me another number that I couldn’t get through on!? Someone try it again. Hope the address is still good. That’s all I have. Would the recipes be the same for any model? Because I can send or give you what I have in my book if that will help. Well, Hope you still Have a Happy Holiday Season.

  • For anyone looking for an instruction manual, they can be found on e-bay easily. I have a Welbilt 8200 that I have worn out. It makes wonderful bread, and my instruction manual even had a section on gluten-free breads, which is why I got the bread machine.

    April Graves
  • I have a Welbilt Bread Machine, #ABM6000. I dug out the book that came with it and was looking to see how much it cost originally (it was a gift several years ago). Anyway, I came across this site and saw that someone needed a phone number in order to get help. The # for assistance that is in my paperwork for Welbilt is 1-800-872-1656. We have had this machine for several years, probably 10, so I don’t guarantee that number to be a good one. HOpe this helps.

    Barbara
  • I have a #6900 and I too pulled it out of a closet after 3 years of buying bread instead of making it. Somehow I’ve lost the piece that connects the bade to the rotor….and yes, the 800 tel. no. is defunct. Any ideas on where I can get this part? Not sure what you’d call it, but it probably comes with the blade. Thanks.

  • I have a welbilt 3500 that I purchased from a thrift store with no instructions. I logged onto Hillbilly House wife and got general directions that can be used with any bread maker and great recipes. I do love this bread maker. I had called the 800 number and got no where. That is the route that I took on getting a manuel. I did see some on line that I could have copied, but I could barely read any of it. I find the breads easy to make as long as you properly measure ingredients and put them into the pan in the proper order. Good luck!

    Rita
  • After much research, I have found that Welbilt Consumer Appliances has been purchased and sold several times over the last few years. While breadmakers are still being manufactured under the Welbilt name, the company that markets them is Tritronics. You can get an owner’s manual on machines that are still being sold. But you are out of luck if you’re looking for a manual on one that has been discontinued. And that’s probably most of us out there. You can contact them at http://www.encompassparts.com/ and click on Guest Login right under the Customer Login. Then you can search for the manual yourself. Or you can call their customer service dept at 1.800.638.3328. Anyway…that’s why the other 800 number doesn’t work anymore.

  • I just bought a Welbilt ABM6000 at a yard sale in Sun City for $12. It has the original manual with it. About 20 pages are for machine ops, and 40 pages are recipes. I don’t have a scanner, perhaps I could photo the pages and send them. Any ideas?

    Dorland
  • Dorland,
    If you take your original manual to a copy store and have them make several copies of the entire manual (they will also corelate for you), you could sell them all day long on ebay or web sites like this one. Say, for example, you paid the copy store .12 cents per page for copying the manual. That would be $4.80 per 40 page manual. You could sell them for $10.00 each without a problem. I will buy one from you. Please let me know if you go this route.

    Patrick
  • I have a welbilt that was new and only used about 10 times and then stored. I pulled it out to day and the blade is all rusted out and the paint is chipping off the insides. I live in AZ so it is hard to imagine it had any reason to rust in my cabinet but there you go. I am guessing it will be near impossible to get a new blade for it after reading the above. It is at least 7 years old but basically brand new. I was disappointed. Has anyone had luck finding replacement parts or should I just trash it?

    Emily
  • I have a 6000 that was put into storage by my mom after she used it one time. I guess she just did not have the time at the time to do it. I just cleaned it all up and am ready to use it and when I plug it in it makes a loud sound even when I push any button, the sound does not go away. Any suggestions on how to stop this? Also- I have the manuel and would be willing to copy it for those who need it. I might have to charge a little for expenses etc, but I could try to help you all out. Let me know

    Amy
  • I have an ABM6000 that I love however the pan actually broke where the paddle meets the kneading spindle. If anyone knows where or has a pan for a broken machine I would appreciate the opportunity to purchase it. These machines were originally sold from Sams club and has lasted me over 10 years. If you come across one of these machines I highly recommend it.

  • My Welbilt 6000 makes a loud clanging sound during the knead cycle.
    Is this normal?

    Donna
  • Brenda,
    To remove the dough blade:
    After you take out the bread, put several ice cubes in the pan, let them melt, and then take the blade.
    This has worked for me.

  • I have celiac disease and would like to bake gluten-free bread in my Welbilt ABM-6000. Is it possible to manually override the rise and bake cycles on the machine? I don’t want to buy a new breadmaker with gluten-free settings, but I only need one rise cycle and one bake cycle.

  • I have had a Welbilt ABM100-4 for a long time. I ordered a replacement rubber gasket that goes in the bottom of the pan 11-20-95. It is still going strong. I was debating purchasing another with a rectangular pan but after looking at the prices and Welbilt is no longer being made I will stick with what I have. It has been VERY dependable. Not sure if you can still order parts. 25 Rose Place Garden City, NY 11040

  • Hello
    I am going in circles.

    I need to replace a paddle for my Welbilt “The Bread Machine” model ABM 100-4.
    I have found an ABM 100-3 but do not know if they are inter-changable.

    I also read something about the DAK but now can’t find it.

    Can you help me find the right paddle?
    Thanks,

  • I got the welbilt abm6000 I believe from my mother in law. The pan is scratched to hell and I refuse to uses scratched non stick with several young kids in the house.
    So instead of tossing it thought I’d ask if anyone wants it. I ship on eBay all the time but I don’t want money for this. Comes with manual and blade. Works great from what I can tell.
    It seems like u guys have gotten very frustrated working to find the replacement parts or a manual. Email me if interested you’d pay actual shipping cost. Tchockey23 at hotmail
