  • A stacked laundry center worth buying?

    May 21, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, convenient, price, better than average capacity
    Cons: Can't they make a stacker in another color other than white?

    Summary: I am usually not a big fan of stacker washers/dryers; they seem to lack the ability to clean clothes adequately and usually have the loading capacity of a soup bowl. When I moved to NC I had no other choice but to buy a stacker due to space, or lack ... read more

  • Overall a Good Value

    Feb 13, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Value for Money, Quiet Operation, Efficient due to less drying time
    Cons: Small porthole access, small washer capacity, loud buzzer

    Summary: I have now had this stacked unit for over 2 years, and it has performed well.  I am definitely glad that I got it over another top load stacked unit: It is MUCH quieter washing, to the degree that you almost forget that it is running.  It ... read more

  • Seriously? I paid over $1300 for this?

    Dec 3, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Even if you're deaf, you'll know when the washer or dryer has finished.
    Cons: Unnaturally LOUD, no adjustment available for buzzer volume

    Summary: I purchased this unit based on the positive reviews I read online, trying to do my due diligence in research before buying what I hoped would be a long-term appliance.  Either I got a dud, or everyone else who bought this model is clinically deaf. ... read more

  • GLEH1642FS - Better with buzzer disabled.

    Jul 27, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Washes well.
    Cons: Annoying buzzer.

    Summary: I have the GLEH1642FS model. Very happy with the machine, aside from the fact that it has a loud and irritating buzzer/alarm. Luckily, with a little tinkering, it's not so difficult to disable the buzzer. I won't explain how to disable, but if you ... read more

  • Love it; love it; love it!

    Jun 5, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great bang for the buck
    Cons: The buzzer is WAY too loud and too long.

    Summary: I bought this machine b/c of all the good reviews here on Epinions. I reiterate all that has been said thus far. It is quiet, efficient, holds a lot of clothes, uses hardly any water, gets the clothes amazing clean and the price is "do-able". With ... read more

  • Great Energy-efficient choice, deafening buzzer

    Feb 13, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Energy efficient, relatively inexpensive, large capacity stackable unit
    Cons: Loud buzzer activates multiple times for a single load, no off or volume control

    Summary: This unit is fast, efficient, and a good buy. I bought it because it was the least expensive choice for a stackable Energy-Star compliant washer/dryer and it had excellent reviews on this web site. What I love about it is that it has a large ... read more

  • By far is the best stacked center we ever had in 25 years

    Feb 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to operate, very silent, saves electricity/water, great capacity, fits anywhere.
    Cons: None important. The washer's load capacity could be as big as the dryer's.

    Summary: My wife and I have been for 25 years sick and tired of buying, fixing, and replacing (sometimes almost new) annoying noisy washers that shake and dance over the laundry room, washers with agitators that sometimes rip our cloths, and dryers that madly ... read more

  • Never had cleaner clothes!

    Jan 6, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Separate dispensers for detergent, bleach and fabric softener. Gets clothes ultra clean. Easy labeled knobs.
    Cons: Messy lint screen.

    Summary: I've had my washer/dryer unit for about 4 or 5 months now. I can wash more clothes at one time and they come out cleaner. I've also found that I can use bleach on my colors without fading them! My cat mistook my laundry basket for her litter box once ... read more

  • Quiet and Efficient

    Apr 8, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, quiet, quiet. Save electricity and water. Use only half detergent
    Cons: Quality control needs to improve

    Summary: We have had this machine for about 5 months now. Before we got this machine, we used to go to coin laundry once or twice a week and spent about $3 - $5 each time in cleaning and drying in laundry. We do the math, $5 a week multiply by 52 weeks means we ... read more

  • What a Machine!!!

    May 21, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet,water & electric saving, large size, solid built, user friendly,earth friendly cleaning machine.
    Cons: There are none.

    Summary: I just love this new machine. I have washed everything from undies to comforters to rugs in my new machine and absolutely love it. It is a little thinner and a bit taller than the refrigerator and fits my space in the kitchen. Our home had never been ... read more

    Pros: Fit into my apartment
    Cons: Couldn't turn off buzzer which isridiculously loud. Broke before it was six yearsold.

    Summary: We have had this product for five years and 10 months a and I bearing broke off the basket. The repairman who was very fair and honest gave me just a parts replacement cost of $1000. I basically have to go purchase a new machine. I will not buy another ... read more

  • Frigidaire stacked washer/dryer a piece of Cr@p

    Jul 3, 2012 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: Inexpensive, if you ignore the out of warranty repair costs. Spacesaver.
    Cons: Fell apart almost as soon as the warranty expired. Total rip off. Don't buy.

    Summary: Less than 6 months after 1 year warranty expired, machine had total meltdown: main seal failed, two sets of bearings out - rapir costs would almost come to original price - response from Lowes: Slam, bam thank you maam! - Don't buy this piece of ... read more

    Pros: Fit in the space; Works great.
    Cons: Have none

    Summary: After reading these review we purchased the front load laundry center for a condo we purchased; first the dryer has to be vented inside - which voids the warranty; shaking issue was resolved and the unit is running great. Make sure to remove all ... read more

  • DO NOT BUY THIS! It RIPS CLOTHING!

    Rated Show
    Pros: one of the few stacked and compact units available.
    Cons: Damages clothing, no on/off for timer

    Summary: THE UNIT IS RIPPING MY CLOTHING! Frigidaire has the worst customer service ever. They sent a technician out and because he said "Nothing seems wrong with the unit." Frigidaire tells me there's nothing I can do. In fact when I mentioned that this could ... read more

  • LOVE MY FRONT LOAD LAUNDRY CENTER WHEN IT WORKS

    Sep 6, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: FRONT LOAD CLEANS CLOTHES GREAT AND GAS DRYER WORKS FINE
    Cons: BUZZER SOUNDS LIKE BASKETBALL GAME AT HALF-TIME. WISH THEY HAD A VOLUME CONTROL

    Summary: OKAY, I READ ALL OF THESE GREAT REVIEWS BEFORE DECIDING TO PURCHASE THE GLGH1642FSO LAUNDRY CENTER. I'VE HAD IT 90 DAYS AND THE FIRST WEEK THE DOOR MECHANISM NEEDED REPLACEMENT; AS I WRITE THIS, IT'S BEING REMOVED FROM MY HOME AND ON ITS WAY TO THE ... read more

  • Great except you need ear plugs

    Oct 26, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Good washer/dryer, great capacity in a small space
    Cons: Buy some ear plugs for the buzzer that you can't turn off

    Summary: This washer dryer combo is great - uses little water, spin is great, drys clothes. The problem is that after the dry cycle OR the wash cycle, the buzzer is so loud and goes on for so long, that it wakes my toddler -- I'm talking a heavy sleeper who ... read more

  • when it works...

    Rated Show
    Pros: It fits the space.
    Cons: It breaks down.

    Summary: Since I've had this washer, it's been broken twice for a total of a month. The washer stops mid-cycle and the door locks closed so you can't get the clothes out until you pull the plug. Sears service is unprepared to repair it and must send to the ... read more

  • I'll never go to a top loader again

    Nov 26, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Gentle on all fabrics Dryer rack - sensor strips extended dry cycle
    Cons: No delayed wash No signal cycle Doesn't "soak" heavy stained whites totally clean

    Summary: I got mine on a special closeout and it's been great to me in the 4 months that I've owned it. Up until this point I had never had a dryer with a rack, but now I can wash my sneakers and hats without hearing the "clunk clunk" of shoes bouncing around the ... read more

  • The above review is not honest

    Aug 10, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Small space saving combo unit performing like the big boys.
    Cons: I wish the machine would fold my clothes after they're dried.

    Summary: The Frigidaire Front load stacked Washer/Dryer is awesome. The person before me who gave a bad review may have a bad machine, but that doesn't mean it reflects all Frigidaire Front load stacked Washer/Dryers. If the person has a problem get it fixed ... read more

  • first unit bad new one fine

    Rated Show
    Pros: Uses little water and detergent. Low purchase price compared to other units.
    Cons: The spin cycle is still a little loud but not too bad.

    Summary: It seems to clean things well with very little detergent, but it sounds like it wants to taker off for Mars. We just got it and I can not imagine that the unit is not defective. Washing is quiet, spin is a debacle. We are calling the dealer today ... read more
