Frigidaire washer recall

I have a Frigidaire Affinity top loading washing machine I bought less than a year ago which has had numerous problems...kind of like my 1992 Vega had way back when......My question is: Why isn't this washer recalled ? Loading the washer a couple of days ago, I heard a click sound, looked up and the lid fell hitting me on the chin with a force. Had I not looked up, it would have possibly cracked my skull open.. Who is liable for injury if one incurs ? manufacturer, place of purchase, or myself....The lid doesn't stay up at all...Personally I can't load my washer with one hand holding that heavy lid open. Thank you.

    This Frigidaire Affinity was bought new about 10 months ago....and had service for other problems with it......Who is liable for injury when washer causes personal health damage ?

You should contact the company. My washer had a part recalled, which was causing it to throw error codes our all the time. Luckily it was still within the warranty so a replacement part was sent right away. Good luck

    I've been hit in the head more than once by the lid. The store came out to level my washer but it is more than that. Now it doesn't stay up for even a second. The dryer iis even worse.

Is there a recall on Frigidaire front load washers. i have had mine for less than 5 years and motor is coroded. Very disappointed. especially for the cost. Debbie Richardson 706 8886362


You need to contact Frigidaire customer service for this, they will have all that information. I don't know of any recalls on any front loaders personally, but based on my experiences with them they are to be avoided, more trouble than they are worth and the are problem plagued compared to top loaders (my 2 top loaders have lasted about 20 years each). And then there is the cost to buy versus a top loader.

My Frigidaire affinity washer doesn't start: the "door locked" button doesn't come on though the door is closed properly


If the washer fills with water, but will not start the wash cycle or spin, it is 1 of to things. the most common for frigidaire front load affinitys is the door lock assembly. I have had to replace numerous of these. if the door lock indicator is not on when it tries to wash, you need to replace the door lock assembly. if the door lock indicator is on, but wont wash, it is likly that you have a bad motor control board.

Frigidaire Front Loader Ripping Clothes


Frigidaire washer sucks. I'm tired of this useless machine ripping my clothes. You need to change your bellows(boot) kits around the door on front load. I have changed this kit twice now and each time, I spent $200 in repair fees. I wished I never bought this washer. Will never recommend to anyone i know.
