Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 112 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by No bending I have had my Frigidare Affinity for about 1 year now. It is onderful!! t is sooo quiet. My power bill has dropped due to the fact that I don't have to use the dryer for 50 minute to dry a heavy load. 30 minutes on low heat I all that I needed. 11/18/10
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! After much research I decided to buy this front loader machine. It was on sale with free delivery. I love it! The controls are simple and easy to use. It runs quiet with no vibration. My cloths come out fresh and clean. No problems with wrinkling. I can only say good things about this machine! 4/21/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great machine! We purchased this washer from Sears and couldn't be happier. The only problem we've had with the machine is that the load needs to be perfectly balanced before starting, and the only way to find out if it's balanced or not is when you do start it the machine it will pause itself multiple times in each cycle of the wash, and your clothes will be soaking wet at the end because it will not spin very fast on the spin cycle. But that's no reason to dock a star, because that's user error not machine error. The anti-vibration technology is wonderful as we live in an apartment complex, so doing wash at 3 am is no problem. When we can afford it we would like to get the matching dryer for it. 2/15/11
Rated 3 out of 5 by after a few years I like this washer, but notice that the rubber seals get moldy easily. You need to wipe it dry after use. 5/31/11
