Frigidaire offers a large number of appliances with multiple choices and price points. Interestingly, one glaring exception is that Frigidaire and Electrolux do not currently sell a top load washer with or without an agitator. They only sell the front load washer. The brand has never been a top seller in the US and historically ranked third behind Whirlpool and General Electric in sales volume. If you were to ask our Landers Appliance service technicians about Frigidaire products, they would say that while not cheaply made, Frigidaire appliances in general do not carry the same life expectancy of other brands due to what they see as design issues. One distinct advantage though, is that Frigidaire replacement parts are usually less expensive than either GE or Whirlpool appliance parts and their initial cost at the register tends to be less than other brands. Parts are also readily available through a wide distribution network and most companies, Landers Appliance included, services the full line of Frigidaire appliances.
If you have a service related question or would like a current perspective on a Frigidaire (or any other brand) appliance, please contact me, Dean Landers at 410 682-3232 ext 101 or DLanders@LandersAppliance.com.
