Customer Reviews

Affinity 3.4 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer in White is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This has to be the world's worst washer. I had 3 different ones delivered to me before I got one ... This has to be the world's worst washer. I had 3 different ones delivered to me before I got one that I thought was a good one. NOT! The mechanism that keeps the lid open, the main piece flew out of the machine & fell behind the washer. Now I have a code LC at present in the digital readout & machine will not turn on. I feel that it has something to do with the lock on the lid. I have inquired at 5 different Frigidaire locations & they will not tell you what the code means, they want you to have a tech come out first. Sure $105 just to come out & $35 each additional 1/2 hr. Yeah I'll just go out in backyard to my money tree & pull off a few bills & pay them. Never ever will I buy Frigidaire again!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Dependable Unit I purchased my washer in December 2012, so I wanted to wait and try it out before I wrote a review. After eight months, here is what I have come up with. 1.) High Efficiency does not mean High Performance. This new technology uses less water, increased soak periods and phosphorous free detergents to get your clothes clean. This top loader model uses an agitator which looks much like a nipple with fins at the base of the tub to grab clothes and direct the movement. 1 1/4 turn right, 1 1/4 turn left. Essentially the clothes rubbing together to get your load clean. 2.) Pre-Treatment Is Premium- Your old washing machine may have gotten out mild stains without any prep work on your part, but don't expect that performance with this unit. If you can't get a stain out by rubbing it out with a damp cloth, changes are that this machine will not get it out either. Pre-treatment with detergent or Spray and Wash will increase your chances for stain removal. This is key from heavy staining to mild staining from grass, topsoil and household dirt. 3.) Increased Wash TIme- While your old washer could bang out a load in 20 minutes, the average wash time for this unit is 53 minutes. If you are trying to save the planet and use the energy saving mode, bring a novel and a crossword puzzle to work on, because the average time on this mode is 76 minutes. Also, this does not use hot water; but instead, uses cool water, not warm. I don't understand how cool water can breakdown dirt, and I never use the energy saving mode. Also, the time display is approximate time and not a clock. It is not uncommon for the unit to be on spin for 12 minutes and the counter has been saying 1 min to go and that was 9 minutes ago. 4.) Turbo High Speed Spin- This is truly amazing and explains why the wash lid must be locked during the entire cycle. On the high speed spin cycle, this tub will spin at 800+ RPM. What is even more impressive is that it makes virtually little noise. Approximately 90% of the water trapped in the fibers of your clothes are being extracted through centrifugal force which decreases your drying time in your HE dryer. 5.) Ignorance is bliss if it doesn't fall on your head- The transparent top lid seemed like a good idea by the design engineer's but if you watch your clothes being washed, you will doubt that your clothes are getting clean. The tub offers little movement, and the unit is constantly adding more water to the cycle which seem counter intuitive to the claim that the unit uses less water. Set it and forget it. Walk away and let the unit do it's job. Also, the lid doesn't lock in the upright position and it will fall on your head as you load and remove clothes from the tub. Someone should have thought that at $550.00 this unit should have that failsafe. Overall, the unit is dependable and a good value. I have noticed that my clothes do not get that "washed out look" from repeated use with a traditional agitator washer. I have not had an odor problem with this unit from bacteria growing on the drum liner, but if you do this can be easily fixed by purchasing the Affresh odor tabs which are available at just about every retailer. This unit was brand new to the market in 2012 and so perhaps many of the issues I mention on this review will be addressed in later models. I am happy with the unit, and I would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Wth This Washer This is our first HE washer. I am very satisfied with this washer. I love the see through top and the many options for washing. It is amazing for my family because I have so many different types of loads to wash (family of 6!). It cleans the clothes and has not ruined one thing. The kids are amazed that they get to see what happens inside the washing machine now. It is a quiet machine when washing, and the finishing chime is not like a loud buzzer. I do not think the cycles are too long. They are anywhere between 30 minutes to 56, depending on the wash cycle. I have not seen a jump in the electric bill and I have done a LOT of laundry this month, so I am pleased about that so far. I would recommend this washer to others because I am extremely satisfied with it. I gave it an excellent review on everything because it has performed excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, I really like my new machine. Overall, I really like my new machine. Very simple to use and has great features available. The only complaint I would have is that on small, delicate loads it doesn't seem to spin all the water out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shipping Tool/Screw on Center Bottom must be removed! Purchased on Oct. 29, 2013, I started with problems from the start. The machine was making loud noises and was moving around with the higher spin cycles. After some researching online I suspected that the problems were happening because the shipping tool/screw were not removed upon delivery/installation. I contacted HD and the guys came out right away and were able to remove it and VOILA, the machine is working Very Well. Although it has many features and cycles that I'm not that familiar with I'm loving the machine and Best of All, it is Very Quiet and it is Staying Put even at the Highest Spin Cycle. If ANYONE is having problems with noises and the machine shifting around, please verify that the Shipping Tool in the Bottom Center has been removed. I'm so glad I did not give up and return the machine. Very Satisfied with this HE Top Load Washer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thought they were great! I purchased these in May 2013, the repair man has been to my house so many times now my dogs don't even bark anymore. From day of delivery, nothing but problems. From the lid slamming down on me during loading, to the tub ring discenegrating to the tub basin not draining to now the transmission springs are shot! Mind you I only do 3 loads a week.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't get clothes clean I HATE this washer. It does not get my clothes clean. I have tried everything they have recommended and nothing has made a difference. If you have children or work outdoors, this washer is not for you. If I could get my 20 year old washer back I would in a heartbeat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Washer ever! Worst ever; does not agitate enough; slowly swishes back and forth. Clothes do not get clean, comes out in the exact same pile that went in (same item on top). Don't waste your money.
