Washer Highlights

Interior Features

  • WashSense technology, is the Affinity series mainstay feature. This particular model of washing machine, however, is NSF certified. This means that the cleaning is more than superficial, with 99.999% of germs destroyed per load. The inclusion of steam improves the removal of stains.

  • 10 wash cycles. One of the highlights of these wash cycles is the Certified Allergen cycle, which removes 95% of possible allergens. Other cycles include Whitest Whites, Bulky and Deep Clean Sanitize.

  • A full load can be washed and dried in a span of merely 50 minutes. A quick wash cycle can cut that time in half. The Energy Save option, on the other hand, cuts the energy consumption a further 60%. The washer is already established as an energy saver having been Energy Star certified.

  • The Silent Design and Vibration Control System provides the consumer with headache-free operations as the FRIGIDAIRE FAFS4272LW emits minimal vibration and imperceptible noise.

    Exterior Features

  • The exterior color is classic white. Alternative colors are classic blue, classic silver and classic red.

  • Stay Put door. The washing machine’s door only opens when not on operation. This same sturdy door can also seal in the freshness of the load when kept closed.

  • An optional SpaceWise Pedestal drawer is included.

  • The control panel presents easy to use buttons. A push of a button selects one of the options available in the washer. The design is also modern. Cycle status lights are included to indicate how far along a load is. The chime status signal can definitely catch the attention of the user.
