This post was written as part of my participation in the Frigidaire Test Drive Mom program with Mom Central. I received an Affinity Washer & Dryer and I’m loving blogging about my experiences with them! Actually doing laundry - eh, not so much....
One of the worst parts of a big family is the amount of laundry that it generates. Every time I turn around, it seems that the laundry baskets are full and the washer is running, running, running. As soon as a load finishes, I toss it into the dryer, lean over and grab another.
And, um, I can personally attest to the fact that the machines are very strong, as last week, I leaned over to toss a load of wash in and stood up - and slammed my head into the open detergent drawer. The front of the drawer popped off and the blood spilled from my head - but the machine was easily repaired. Not so my poor head. Owie, ow, ow.
But the trouble comes when you do more than one load, because usually, the washer takes longer, or the dryer takes longer, and then the next thing you know, the wet wash is stacked up and sitting around, and then it's bedtime and you don't have the wash finished.
But the new Frigidaire Affinity has TimeWise, a feature that allows the machines to finish a wash cycle at the SAME TIME as a dry cycle - so the loads finish at once. It's like a mind meld or a telepathy or something. It's kind of spooky.
It can't DO the wash for you - but it's the next closet thing.
