I bought this in March and it broke Twice on me. If you get this, better invest into a warranty. Thank God we did because we had to go both times at least 3 weeks without the dryer and had to spend extra money to dry our clothes at the laundry mat. A huge inconvenience. The screws kept coming out of the dryer causing it to mess up the heating coils. However Sears did make it right gave us credit to get a separate washer and dryer. We should have it Saturday. So in my opinion this is a waste of time and money.
Have had 3.5 months. Yesterday the washer stopped mid cycle, now makes horrible grinding noise and wont run. Dryer screws have been falling out of since we bought it, we screw back in. Today we took clothes to laundramat to wash then brought back home to dry. Dryer starting making horrible noise, another screw fell out. Screwed it back in, but it won't stay and machine wont run properly. So both washer and dryer have died within 24 hours. Cons even before the machine fell apart - Needs better control knobs and cycle indicators: 1) When the washer is running, you can't tell how long the machine has left in the cycle or even in which part of the cycle it is running. 2) Has toggle button to turn washer and dryer on or off. It beeps one or two times to tell you if off or on. However, sometimes you have to push many times before it starts. I have walked away several times thinking it had started only to walk back later and find it had not started.
I just assumed that if a washer has "Hot" as one of the selections on the ****, when you turned the **** to "hot", you would get HOT water in your washer. Apparently NOT SO if the washer is a "high efficiency" washer like this model. The water is barely warmer than COLD. The technician has ordered a new computer control board thinking this might help, but also tried to tell me that this is the way it was designed and the water is never supposed to be hot. The manual says "The energy saver option reduces water temperature a few degrees to save energy, ...." A FEW DEGREES? A few degrees I could handle. I consider this false advertising and the inability to wash clothes in hot water, when needed, a health risk. Buyers beware!
After 20+ years my 24" Frigidare laundry center was on its last legs. I decided to get the 27" this time. Best move I've made in years. This is a great machine, I can wash my bedding and it gets the laundry very clean. I was amazed at how drive the wash was coming out of the washer. Takes very little time to dry the wash. I'm happy, happy, happy
This is basically the same unit Frigidaire has made for many years. I have had mine for almost 11 years now, and the only repair was that the dryer bearing needed greasing after 10 years of use. I do about 8 loads of wash a week, and have found that it cleans and dries the clothes very well. I have read the problems with the current Kenmore and GE units, and I would steer clear of them. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my Frigidaire and would recommend it without hesitation. Would I buy another one just like it? You bet.
