2012 Best Value Washing Machine and Best Value Washer/Dryer Pair (with Frigidaire Affinity FASE7073)
With an MSRP of just $749, the Frigidaire Affinity FAFW3801LW is one of the least expensive front loading washers on the market. In addition to its low purchase price and cost of ownership, this washer's greatest asset is its simplicity. For the most part, it's a matter of turning the dial to the desired cycle and pushing start. There isn't even a power button: turning the dial activates the machine. However, this simplicity also brought with it a few issues, notably the lack of a dedicated quick wash or cottons cycle.
Still, it's a good value. Over five years of running this Frigidaire, it could save you up to $150 in water and energy costs when compared to a traditional top loader.
