    Comments about Frigidaire Affinity 3.8 Cu Ft Ready Steam Front Load White Washer:

    Been 6 months and love our washer and gas dryer. Took some getting used to the features and the speed of the unit . . . the detergent/bleach/softener tray is my main complaint - cheap design comes to mind. Our H20 bill has dropped by 1/3, the size of it makes combining loads a snap compared to our old top loader. The peds make for much needed storage. I am tall so the top height is fine, but if you're 5' something, don't plan on using the top space much. But, having the openings at 3-4' is so much easier on the back. A minor annoyance - the drive motor puts off a high frequency signal that interferes with am radio around 1070 . . . my favorite am station. If those are my complaints, I am truly blessed!

      Comments about Frigidaire Affinity 3.8 Cu Ft Ready Steam Front Load White Washer:

      This washing machines ability to clean our clothes has exceeded our expectations in every way. We have had outstanding results using Seventh Generation liquid and Powder detergents, as well as Bio-Clean. The washer is very quiet and easy to use.

      This machine should give one many years of quiet operation and outstanding performance if the directions are followed. Most negative reviews of front loading washing machines are the result of not following the directions.

      First, level the washing in place. Leveling it and then pushing it back into its final position may not work. Properly blanced it should be very quiet even at its highest spin speeds.

      Second, only use HE detergents. They foam less which avoids causing issues with the pump and increasing water usage, and will not leave build up clogging draining, damaging the seals and bearing, and leading to black mold.

      Third, do not use too much detergent. Water can only absorb so much detergent. Beyond that the extra detergent gets deposited as residue clogging drainage, damaging seals and bearings, and leading to black mold. Tide recommend too much. Use about a third

      Fourth, leave the door open between loads. There is a latch on this machine to help with this. This will allow the door seal to dry and avoid trapped moisture becoming moldy and will extend the life of the door seal.

      My only negative comment has to do with the fragile nature of electronic buttons. My experience with them in the past on other devices has not been good. However, it may be different with this machine. Typically, even if the buttons themselves do not fail, the plastic coverings often break down leaving an unmarked naked switch beneath. So, I would rather have real mechanical buttons instead.

      Comments about Frigidaire Affinity 3.8 Cu Ft Ready Steam Front Load White Washer:

      I would like to empty the standing water from the detergent/softner tray after I finish for the day, but it is a little diifficult to remove. So I'm only emptying that tray and drying completely once a week.

      Also, for some bulky items I would prefer not to have spin, but there is no such setting.

        Wonderful very efficient machines, we couldn't be happier. We have them on a third floor and were concerned about shaking and vibration but were very happy to find they were quiet. Very nicely made. The ABT Installers were great too, very nice guys, very welcome in our home.

          We got this and a matching gas dryer to replace our apartment stacked unit, it fit perfectly, maybe even smaller than what it replaced. So far so good, this washer is so quiet I keep thinking it isnt running anymore and go to check on it. It has a cycle countdown timer which is great since you will know exactly when the wash done and plan other chores/errands around it.

            I always had issues washing my California king bedding until I got this product I honestly couldn't be happier. The only downfall is little things like my newborns mittens get stuck between the door and the rubber opening, good thing he wont be wearing these for too long.
