Frigidaire Affinity front-load washing machine, purchased Feb. 9, 2014, has broken down three times in 13 months.
Same basic problem each time: bad electronics. The control board (and door locks) misfire. Twice, the fix was free under the original 1-yr manufacturer's warranty. Once, the fix was free under the extended warranty.
Lowe's sold me the lemon, and I'll never shop again at Lowe's. Frigidaire won't credit me for the piece of *** so I can go but a Whirlpool. Under the extended warranty, it must break down at least three times before Frigidaire will consider replacing the machine. They won't count the first two malfunctions since they occurred under the original warranty.
That means the thing has to shoot sparks at least FIVE TIMES before I'm eligible for a replacement. Here's the thing: I don't want a fricking replacement. It's a piece of ***. I want a different washer, better brand.
AVOID APPLIANCES WITH ELECTRONICS AND DIGITAL DISPLAYS. They are built to break down.
Reason of review: Not as described.
Monetary Loss: $700.
