Washer Highlights

Interior Features

  • The TimeWise technology popular in Affinity series washing machines is present here. This technology allows each load to be washed and dried during the indicated wash time. The fast cycles should somehow make up for the fact that there is no Energy Saver option included.
  • WashSense technology that ensures the cleanliness of each load. The washing machine can take on the heaviest and bulkiest loads with minimal or no vibration and noise. The no noise and no vibration operation is made possible through the Silent Design feature and the Vibration Control System.

  • The Delay Start system has the typical Affinity Series 1 to 14 hours programming. The range of time should be adequate for any type of household.

  • Even with just 5 wash cycles available, this washing machine model is highly programmable, thanks to the Delay Start and the automatic water level and temperature adjustments. Plus, the FRIGIDAIRE FAFW3801LW also has a soiling detector that helps each cycle customize itself according to the load.

    Exterior Features

  • With a Stay Put Door, the consumer should not be too worried about the wash suddenly gushing and falling on the floor. The door can be tightly locked and sealed until the cycle is over or if the Add a Garment feature is selected. Because of the tight seal, the laundry’s freshness is locked in as long as the door is closed.

  • This particular model’s color is Classic White. This is a good exterior color for traditional consumers. The washing machine is also available in Classic Black, for those who want something a little bit different.

  • Consumers only have to deal with a simple but sophisticated-looking set of Express Select Controls. A button corresponds to a cycle or an option.

  • The drum is made of stainless steel and is, therefore, rust-free. The material is compatible to use in building surfaces that are constantly in contact with water.
