... I cannot see why this machine is getting any bad reviews at all
2 August 2014
Summary: For the life of me I cannot see why this machine is getting any bad reviews at all! If you look over the manual, sort clothing correctly, and use the correct amount of HE detergent ( you'll know cuz there will be little to no suds ) you should have no problems at all with having clean looking and smelling clothes that come out undamaged. I could not be happier with this machine!
Summary: Oh my gosh, this is a piece of junk. We bought this machine and matching dryer for a second home where I do less laundry than at our primary residence so it has not been over used! I have the same problems as others who have commented that clothes come out still dirty. I figured out that you have to keep the loads of wash very small and use the high setting for water level. Only then did clothes not have a lint-like residue on them.
Do not buy this machine it is especially not enery efficient !!!!!

Summary: This is the worst machine I ever had. So many issues. 1. It does not spin well, even when you run the spin cycle twice, Clothes are too wet and do not dry properly on any cycles. 2. Clothes do not come clean, it even leaves clumps of fuzz all over clothes and in creases. 3. If air is in clothes no matter how hard you try to push it down it will not get wet. 4. Even when you put small loads in it still does not clean well. 5.
Summary: There's something wrong with a washer when the clothes coming out have spots on them and look dirtier than when they went in. I regularly have to rinse out my clothes by hand afterward. Not sure if it's soap or scum, but I am SOOOO sorry I purchased this machine. I use the HE soap at the recommended amount, and also tried even less. It makes no difference. Also, the lid is very loose. It was repaired once since it didn't stay up from the beginning.
Summary: This is a great washing washer. It is HE, but you can control the water level, which is rare for a HE machine. There is a ton of water action during the wash cycle and it is the best bang for your buck in HE top-loaders. Don't spent the $1000 on the Maytag Bravos or Whirlpool Cabrio unless you need the super capacity.
Summary: We purchased this unit new several months ago. from day one it would not drain properly. fixed the leaky hose. then we experienced intermittent results. some loads were completed others would not drain or not spin. second service call. this was to make it drain. we were told it may need a new pump. still did not work and on the third call the pump was replaced. it was draining better but still experienced intermittent results with the spin cycle and draining not working.
Summary: Overall I think I will like this machine but from the first day I have had trouble. The first was the lid it will not stay open,called the first day and had repair service out,they replaced all parts and still it does not stay open Frigidaire is a nightmare,you need an act of congress to get anything done but with the help of the repair co and AJ Madison a new one is to be delivered,I hope soon.
