  • My first front loader and I love it! Over 3 years...so far, so good!

    Jan 21, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Extremely quiet, quick cycle times, water-saving, top-notch cleaning!
    Cons: Perm Press cycle leaves clothes too wet; customized settings do not return to default.

    Summary: I researched front loaders for a long time and ended up buying ours  at Lowe's (GLTF2940BK), based on Consumer Reports "Best Buy" designation and the fact that Lowe's had it on sale and I was able to a 10% off coupon to save even ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Large capacity, easy to use.
    Cons: Cheaply made, broke 3 times, VERY loud spin cycle, hard to keep clean.

    Summary: We bought this machine in February of 2006 because, compared to other front loaders, it was a great bargain and it seemed to be just what we needed. It was large and we have a family of 5 so we needed something that was energy star compliant, water ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: very quiet, nice looking, cleans very well
    Cons: other than the need to wipe down the door gasket, none!

    Summary: After using this machine for 5 months and after reading other reviews, I wanted to post my experience since I thought some of the reviews were harsh. Overall I'm very pleased with the performance. I'm amazed at how well it cleans the clothes with very ... read more

  • Great Machine - Great Price

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, effectiveness, wash cycle selection
    Cons: None

    Summary: We've owned this machine for a few months now and I have absolutely nothing to complain about. I believe that other reviewers were commenting on how it leaves behind water in the door gasket - but the new machine I bought in May doesn't have this problem ... read more

  • Wish I Hadn't Bought

    Jun 26, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice looking, gets clothes clean
    Cons: Shakes/vibrates almost our entire house before & after spin cycles!

    Summary: After much research, I bought this washer to replace a top loader. Seems like everyone I know who has a front load machine loves it. They must not own this particular machine. The thing vibrates/shakes so much at the beginning and end of the spin ... read more

  • Happy with it but it doesn't get rebates

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, efficient, cleans well, gives you work space on top to sort and fold clothes.
    Cons: Does not qualify for energy or water provider rebates.

    Summary: About a month ago we got the Lowe's model washer (LTF2940EE) and dryer (LGQ2152EE) in black. The last letter signifies the color. We're very happy with the performance of the washer and dryer-- quiet, good performance, and lower-priced than most ... read more

  • Bad Vibrations

    Dec 13, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Initially, the price & range of cycles. Attractive & energy efficient.
    Cons: Earthquake-like effect during spin cycle, uneven door, musty odor from water remaining in door seal.

    Summary: I am relieved to find that I am not the only one with washer shake issues, as Frigidaire/Electrolux customer service claims that the construction of my house is the problem: a frame house!? From day one, this washer vibrated uncontrollably and made my ... read more

  • Great Investment!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Energy and water savings, softer clothes, attractive model, quiet operation
    Cons: trouble with door

    Summary: Extensive research led me to this model, with Energy Star and water conservation being priorities. I checked rpm for every machine's spin, gallons of water and kilowatts per load, features like auto water levels, sound...everything. This LTF2940ES from ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans clothes, is not very noisy, looks great
    Cons: None so far

    Summary: I've had my washer for about 9 months now and am very satisfied with its performance. We followed the installation instructions to the letter which I think is really important, because if the machine is not level it will rattle considerably. Once ... read more

    Pros: Efficient. Low wrinkling of clothes. Fast dry time.
    Cons: As compared to higher priced brands the doors could be sturdier.

    Summary: We've owned our set (washer GLTF2940ES and dryer GLGQ2152ES) for over a year now and would recommend these washers to family members. Likes We like the compact size of the set without the compromise of the benefits of a front ... read more

    Pros: Excellent price, quiet, washes well
    Cons: None so far

    Summary: I almost got scared off from buying this machine and it would have been a big mistake. We've probably washed and dried 50 loads and it is everything advertised. It is quiet, vibration free, there is NO mold odor or buildup in the door gasket. The ... read more

    Pros: When it works it has substantially reduced the water usage.
    Cons: Poor quality and poor service.

    Summary: We took the recommendation of the sales person and attractive price and acquired this machine. It worked for about a week, then would fill with water and not start. After a week a service man came out to look at it and told us that there has been a lot ... read more

    May 15, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Uses less water, clothes come out drier, lower price than most front loaders.
    Cons: Soap, bleach, softener drawer has a concealed latch. It takes getting used to it.

    Summary: The Lowes version of the Frigidaire GLTF2940ES appears to be the same washer with the possible exception of an added lint filter. The Lowes version list a lint filter, the standard Frigidaire model doesn't. There may be a couple of differences in the ... read more

    Mar 23, 2006 by

    Pros: I only paid $348.50 for this broken front loading machine.
    Cons: Everything until it works right, I will update later about functionality.

    Summary: I purchased the Frigidaire GLTF2940E washing machine at Lowe's last Saturday. Now I will say that the one I purchased was (I thought) a floor model that had some cosmetic flaws, but I did expect it to wash at least 1 load of clothes before I had any ... read more

    Summary: I recently purchased the Frigidaire GLTF2940E as a set with the dryer. So far it has been an absolute pleasure compared to the machines we replaced. I will start with the look, then the performance, and then talk about installation. Also, be sure to read ... read more
