Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Worst Brand Ever

Submitted by Lilly820 - 12/14/2017

after 3 years and many problems with this washer, I finally gave up. It won't drain and spin, clothes come out soaking wet. It bypasses the drain & spin cycle. Called Support technician, a door latch needed to be replaced, once replaced still don't work right, called a tech to come out, after 2 hours of looking at it, he insisted we replace it. So this Frigidaire Brand only lasts this long and has this many problems?? After I ordered a new washer, my Frigidaire Fridge is broken the same day too.

Terrible Washer

Submitted by Disappointed in CO - 2/3/2015

We've had our Affinity for about 7 months. The first month we had to call the repair man because the lid would not stay up. Pretty common problem based on reviews we've read. Within the last month it has stopped cleaning the clothes. After every load, including my dress work clothes, there is a black scum around the bottom of the washer and on the clothes. We have tried everything including using Affresh washer cleaner, running bleach through a couple of cycles. It does not matter what we are washing there is black scum. The store where we bought it says just keep running it empty to clean it out. It is disgusting to wash your clothes for over an hour and have them come out dirty than when they went in. Regret this purchase.

Doesn't get clothes clean

Submitted by Kathy - 12/14/2014

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.

Meh..

Submitted by col3man - 10/28/2014

It looks sort of dorky, although the clear top is kind of cool. I haven't been able to get the washer towork since it was delivered so I can't really give a fair description on the quality of its performance,but seeing that we had two separate repairman out to just get it operational seems to say somethingabout it's overall performance.

Hit or Miss

Submitted by tawannab76 - 7/27/2014

I don't if it's the washer, or the delivery guys that assembled the unit, the 2 digit numeric display is unreadable. Also, some of the features do not work. For example, wrinkle free. Also, on average a load is around 58-65 minutes. In addition to that, often I find myself rewashing the same load because it does not appear to be clean. Last but not least, can never tell if or when the unit is filling with water.

Worst Washer ever!

Submitted by Sharon - 5/31/2014

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.

LOVE THIS WASHER!

Submitted by Vincennes Mom - 5/19/2014

I am a Frigidaire fan to begin with. This is my first washer from them, and don't know what took me so long to buy. I love it. I am not sure why some reviews say the clothes are not clean. I never have this problem. My lid was a little loose at first but had it fixed and no major issues. I do wish it stood straight a little more. It is a bit on the noisy side when it gets going with a full load but we have a room that is shut off so that does not cause a problem. I couldn't be happier, I have had this washer for a little over 6 months and love it just as much when it was new. I have 2 small children and a husband that farms so we KNOW how to get dirty!

The waterfall washing is a total joke

Submitted by Amanda - 3/31/2014

The waterfall washing is a total joke. How can you make your laundry clean by simply flushing water onto them? I observed closely how this machine works. Basically it only pours water onto the laundry, no any wave generated to apply enough force and power to make them clean. However you load the laundry, however they come out. If some cloth you put in folded, the machine never bother to unfold it. So you expect the machine make anything clean for you? Give me a break!

Worst washer ever

Submitted by unhappyconsumer - 1/8/2014

There's something wrong with a washer when the clothes coming out have spots on them and look dirtier than when they went in. I regularly have to rinse out my clothes by hand. Not sure if it's soap or scum, but I am SOOOO sorry I purchased this machine. I use the HE soap at the recommended amout, and also tried even less. It makes no difference. Also, the lid wouldn't stay up from the beginnning and had to be repaired. It's still very loose, but at least it hasn't fallen on my head yet. The repairman commented that he was surprised at the loose design. I don't even care about that, though. I just want clothes that look and smell clean. Go figure.

Great washer

Submitted by Kimberly - 12/30/2013

I had a front load washer for about 10 years and it took me a while to get used to this one. Now that I have had it about a year I love it. Clothes come out clean and fresh and the machine doesn't get the mildew smell that front loaders do if you don't dry out the washer and leave the door open. Overall very happy with purchase. We have had about a year and I have a husband, 3 kids and 3 dogs, so we do a lot of laundry.

Reservations

Submitted by Judy - 12/19/2013

Although the washer has many nice features I have a recurring problem with the water level. It seldom fills enough to cover the clothes and yesterday the clothes on top did not even get entirely wet. When the cycle was done several items still had large dry areas on them. I have even tried max water level and this doesn't help. I called the company and had a service person look at it and he thought it was OK but there were no clothes in it when he checked it.I also purchased the matching dryer and have trouble getting the clothes dry and the chime is not loud enough to know when it is done and therefore the clothes lay there and get wrinkles.

Submitted by CRP - 11/13/2013

LOVE THIS WASHER!!! Not sure why others are having issues with washers but i have had mine since May and i LOVE IT!! Never had problem with it becoming unlievel or "walking" anywhere or anything. the only thing was in Oct a screw worked loose on lid hinge and it wouldn't stay up on it's own and they came and fixed. No odd noises, unless colthes were uneven, but that's operators fault not manufacters. i have 3 small kids so i use daily so believe me it gets it's workout. i would recommend to anyone who asks me. when my old dryer breaks down i will replace with the one that matches this washer..

DO NOT BUY THIS WASHER!

Submitted by Mac - 11/9/2013

After we lost our washer and dryer in Katrina we made do with hand-me-downs but when that washer died we went shopping for appliances we'd hoped would last the rest of our lives. (We're old)Just shoot me now for choosing the Frigidaire Affinity. Since it was delivered on August 20th one repairman has been here 6 times and twice brought a second repairman with him to figure the problem out.Our very first load screeched like a banshee and did not instill confidence, Repairman came and checked it out electronically and couldn't find anything wrong. After he left we found one of the plastic leveling feet had broken off. He brought another one and in the process of installing it found another broken foot.All of this time the lid was malfunctioning. It would not stay up by itself so I could put the clothes and washing supplies in it. It must have slammed on my head 10 times. (I'm a slow learner.) Finally, I called the dealer we bought it from and he offered to replace it with another brand new washer.When the new washer arrived THAT lid wouldn't stay up either! Called the store back and they sent the repairman again. He told us that the lid failure was a known issue to Frigidaire and that we'd need a new hinge thingy. That took at least 10 days to get to the repair man. He installed it and guess what? That didn't work either. We now keep the lid open with a small bungee cord attached to a shelf above the washer.A load just finished as I was typing this and we heard a loud PING! I just can't wait to see what that will be.Save yourself a lot of trouble and don't buy Frigidaire Affinity!

Don't waste your money

Submitted by Peggi Lee - 11/4/2013

This is quite possibly the worst washing machine ever designed. It is poorly constructed. We've only had this washer for six weeks and we've had it worked on twice already.I've had clothes that have come out the washer, after the cycle was completed that have been partially dry. Yes, partially dry. Also, the machine moves all over the place. We've leveled it several times, made sure all four feet are adjusted correctly, time and time again and yet, it moves (walks). We don't dare start a load and leave the house for fear the water lines will get pulled off.The lid springs have come loose causing a horrendous noise during the spin cycle,Please don't waste your money on this. Oh, and the matching dryer isn't any better.

Best Ever Washer

Submitted by Bonnie - 9/29/2013

I was hesitant to buy this washer, my previous one was what i thought to be one of the best. Well, compared to this one, it wasn't. This washer is awesome!! I congratulate the salesman with his patience with me, I was sure I was going to walk out not buying anything. One of the salesman gave me a demonstration of a cycle right there on the showroom floor. That is what sold me. I can't rave enough about all the different cylces washing everything I could, following all the instructions. Reasonalble price for super high quality.

Love this washer

Submitted by No Name - 7/23/2013

I researched every washing machine imaginable. Due to the size of my laundry room, this is the machine that I ended choosing. I love it. Believe me I read every review out there. This machine is so quiet that I have to keep checking to see if it is running. I have no problems with the cleanliness of the wash and it might take a little longer for a load to finish, but that isn't a big issue. I love that the water level adjusts automatically. I have the matching drive and I love that also.
