Least expensive front-loading washer
Analysis of our test results show that the Frigidaire Affinity FAFW3801LW is a very efficient machine. Using national averages, we calculated this washer's annual operating cost at just $28.58. The Frigidaire is also a team player. On the Normal cycle, our test loads only retained 47 percent of their weight in water, meaning that your dryer will have to expend less energy to get your clothes to wearable state.
Piece of junk
We've had this washing machine for a few years and it is about to go into a dumpster.
It's required repairs at least four times. Plastic pieces (such as the soap dispenser) are cracking. The door is difficult to close and requires slamming to properly latch. The lint filter (located underneath the bottom metal panel, requires tools to remove) clogs frequently. The metal around the door is showing more rust than a beater car in Chicago.
