Frigidaire Complaint - Faulty design - Front load washer
I'm considered a lucky one. My Frigidaire GLTF1670ASO front load washer lasted for 7 years. During this time the clothes seems not clean, they have funny smell. I only found out why, when the machine is broken. Frigidaire used a thin extrusion aluminum spider in the back of inner drum. Aluminum is corrosive. With the plastic outer tub and stainless steel inner tub, will speed up the corrosion of aluminum spider. During the process, it creates bad smell to your clothes. After 4-5 years, with a heavy load and fast final spin will snap the spider.
The (only) inner tub is warranty for 25 years, but don't count on it. They won't send the part to you. You must go through "authorized service personnel". You have to pay up front, whether your machine is fixed or not. They get your money in stages, so you won't back out. After go through the process, it might cost you about $300, if Frigidaire is honor its warranty, if not $500. They might not because of the hard water level in your area or you don't use front load detergents. It will take about 2 months or more before your machine is working again.
I put my machine to the landfill, unfortunately, I cannot pay to fix the machine for 2/3 the cost of new one, and wait for 2 months. You bet my next one will not be Frigidaire nor Electrolux products (Electrolux makes washers and other appliances for Frigidaire, Kenmore...)
