Pros: BUY IF YOU LIKE GARBAGE!
Cons: THE ENTIRE WASHER IS A CON!
I wish someone had told me how horrible Fridgidare appliances are in general. More than anything I wish I had listened when I read negative reviews about the Frigidaire AFFINITY Series of Washer Dryer. Lets start with the good news. The AFFINITY Dryer works perfectly. There was NOTHING at all wrong with the AFFINITY Dryer it was a real work horse and I loved it. However calling the AFFINITY Washer a complete total and utter piece of JUNK is to do a dis-service to ALL JUNK Everywhere. The AFFINITY Washer first does not do a really good job cleaning clothes because; it is too busy trying to wash clothes in what seems like a teaspoon of water. All this talk about saving water. Well its a funny thing that it actually takes water to clean clothes but the makers of the AFFINITY WASHER do not seem to know that water is an important part of washing clothing.
That's not all the Frigidaire AFFINITY Washer people don't know about cleaning clothes. Washing Machines especially front loaders tend to vibrate violently as they spin the clothes in the final spin cycle. However the AFFINITY Washer has cheap electronics that can not stand the shaking of the washers spin cycle over the long term. The AFFINITY Washer over time will develop what I call the Pause Problem. Once the AFFINITY washer spin cycle has rattled loose its digital washer cycle management card the whole machine breaks down. In time ALL AFFINITY Washers spin cycle just stops working and you get a constant pause message instead of a spin. Do worry no matter what you do the pause message never goes away. In time the clothes Wash cycles will continue to work but once broken a Frigidaire AFFINITY Washer will never spin again.
The Frigidaire AFFINITY Washer has another nice hidden flaw that will prevent it from working. The lint filter in the AFFINITY Washer is placed so only a technician can access it at an extraordinary price of a service call that's IF YOU CAN GET THROUGH TO FRIGIDAIRE SERVICE WHICH IS A JOKE! Now that tells you how well thought out the engineering is in the Frigidaire AFFINITY Washer a lint filter put placed so the customer can never clean it properly. I for one don't want to buy a washing machine that's so high and mighty that it thinks I want to pay lots of money just to have the lint filter professionally cleaned. Or Maybe the people making the Frigidaire AFFINITY Washer think that lint, cat hair, fuzz balls and other such laundry day gremlins have suddenly disappeared from planet Earth never to return. But what happens is the pump just stops working because; the AFFINITY WASHERS lint filter gets so clogged with crap that the washer no longer drains effectively. So after two years owning an AFFINITY Washer you will have standing water in the wash drum that the pump is powerless to remove.
Now finally a bit about myself. I am not a slob. I am a single man living in a small condo. At best I wash two full loads a week. I wash four comforters once a month. I wash and dry one comforter at a time till all four are done. I wear mostly blue jeans and hoodies or button down cotton long sleeve shirts in winter. I wear blue jeans and short sleeve cotton shirts in summer. Otherwise I wash socks and underwear nothing fancy or delicate. I do not have a cat, dog or other animal so there is no fur to clog up the washers inaccessible lint filter. I have a white collar job so it is not excess grease gunk, dirt or grime that fouled up the AFFINITY WASHER. I am just a normal guy who wanted a Quality Washing Machine and in the Frigidaire AFFINITY Washer I got a bedly designed hunk of junk washing machine whose only true AFFINITY is for breaking and SUDDENLY BECOMING A COMPLETELY USELESS PILE OF JUNK IN A LAND FILL! The Frigidaire AFFINITY was properly named because it has a true dedicated AFFINITY for breaking that has no rival in the entire washing machine industry.
Finally what happened to my FRIGIDAIRE AFFINITY WASHER you ask, where does all junk belong the answer is at the county dump. The quality of the Energy Efficient AFFINITY Washer saved a little water maybe at the expense of my having clean clothes. Unfortunately my Energy Star Frigidaire AFFINITY Washer and dryer ended up polluting the environment since it lasted barely two years and now sits in the landfill taking up space at least 6 years earlier than any other quality washer would have. The Frigidaire Washer is a piece of JUNK and if you buy them in two years time you too will have an expensive horror story to tell just as I do now. Look on the internet search for Frigidaire AFFINITY Washer Problems \ Pause \ filter and you will see the pause problem and water filter issues are well documented. People buy junk everyday but if you buy the Frigidaire AFFINITY Washer you were warned so when your Frigidaire AFFINITY Washer turns into a hunk of junk in a few years time the only person you have to blame is yourself. When your AFFINITY WASHER stops unexpectedly, turns off then displays a pause message when you attempt to restart the cycle remember this old gray AUTISTIC WEREWOLF who got burned by this Frigidaire AFFINITY JUNK tried its best to warn you
