If you are in the market for a new washing machine and dryer, you may be considering buying the Frigidaire Gallery Series front-loading washer and dryer. With the popularity and priciness of front loading washing machines, the Frigidaire is worth a look.
Front Loading Frigidaire Gallery Series Washing Machine
If you are in the market for a washing machine which will save you money and be gentle on your clothes, you may want to consider the Frigidaire Gallery Series Front Loader.
This washing machine uses only a minimal amount of water to wash your clothes. It senses exactly how much water is need for the load, and adjusts accordingly. This is both a plus and a minus to this front loading washing machine.
Keeping your water bill and your heating bill low are two definite plusses. This washing machine will automatically sense just how much water to use based on your cycle choice and load size. You don’t have to worry about forgetting to adjust the washer to a small load and wasting water or the energy to heat it.
However, you can not override this automatic function and I find this to be an occasional negative. There are times when you may want an especially dirty load of wash to swish around in some extra water to really get it clean. This is not an option in the Gallery Series Front Loading Washing Machine. You can, however, add an extra rinse or spin, so this had not been a major problem.
The Frigidaire Gallery Series washer has a fantastic selection of load and cycle settings. The following are just a few of the cycles you can choose from: Normal, Heavy, Perm Press, Quick, Silk, Touch Up, Bulky, Rinse/Spin, Hand Wash and many more.
The Spin/Rinse Cycles have many choices as well. You can spin from High down to Hang Dry or No Spin. And Rinse has choices ranging from Press Saver (always a great thing), Extra Rinse, Extra Spin, Normal and Heavy.
It is easy to make the cycle choices. All selections are lit for you, so you can verify that you have made the correct selections. Once you have started the washer, the Front Door Locked indicator will light due to the fact that it is front loading.
Front Loading Washing Machine
Since this is a front loading washing machine, it has no agitator. This is fantastic if you have delicate clothes, bedding or other washables.
I have washed several of my hand made crocheted blankets in this machine and they have emerged clean and unscathed. I highly recommend this washing machine for delicates.
For the most part, this front loading washing machine has performed very well. About the only thing that I don’t like about it is the lint. This washing machine is not very good at removing lint from clothes.
Since it is the only front loading washer I have ever had, I do not know if that is a common problem with this type of washing machines. Since they load from the front, there is no lint filter to place on the agitator and clothes tend to come out with just as much lint as when they went in.
The only other thing that I would change about this washing machine is the automatic water level. As I mentioned previously, it would be better if there was an override for this function for occasional use.
The capacity on the Frigidaire Gallery Series front loading washing machine is fantastic. I have the Super Capacity size washer, and I can tell you that I can fit a huge load of bedding or other wash in this washing machine.
This washer is also quite gentle of your laundry. I recommend this front loading washing machine for delicates of hand washables. It does a terrific job.
The Gallery Series Front Loading Washing Machine also has a terrific cycle selection. You can adjust it to almost anything you can think of.
Energy Saver. This washing machine is an Energy Start rated appliance. It will save you money on your water, electric heating and detergent bills.
Frigidaire Gallery Series Dryer
This electric clothes dryer has worked very well for me. As with anything, I have a few gripes, but for the most part, I this is a great dryer with a large capacity.
The Frigidaire Gallery Series Electric Dryer has an automatic Moisture Sensor. This is fantastic, as you do not have to guess at how long it will take to dry your laundry.
You can set the Moisture Sensor to from More Dry to Damp and the Gallery Series Electric Dryer will automatically sense when your clothes are fully dry.
The Frigidaire Gallery Series Dryer also has a terrific cycle selection. You can choose from among settings such as Normal, Towels, Perm Press, Quick, Delicate and Bulky. There is also a timed cycle, a Shrink Guard setting and a Press Saver setting.
You can choose the heat level as well. This can adjust from High all the way down to No Heat. Very handy if you just want to tumble the wrinkles out of something or snap a sweater back into shape.
This dryer has worked very well for me for the most part. I have been able to dry delicates in the Frigidaire Gallery Series Electric Dryer with no problems at all. I also love the way you can adjust the cycles setting to be quite specific. I have found that this saves me time and energy.
The dryer has an interior light which goes on and off when the dryer door opens. This is a handy feature.
The capacity of this dryer is also superb. I can fit very large loads of laundry in this machine and it performs well.
There are two minor negatives I have found with this dryer. The first is that the door does not always close well. I have to really slam it to close it properly. However, I have a feeling that this is specific to my particular dryer.
The only other negative about this dryer is that even on the More Dry setting, my heavier clothes tend to be a little damp when the cycle is done.

All-in-all, I have been very happy with this washing machine and dryer. Aside from the few negatives I have already mentioned, I have found this pair of appliances to perform well and as expected. They are also clean and modern looking.
