Classic Blue and NSF Certified with Auto/Timed Drying Cycles

The 7 cycles included in the FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KN electric dryer are supported by 12 options, an NSF certification and a moisture sensor. There are also other signature features and technologies from the Affinity series of dryers that are included in this particular model. The FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KN comes in Classic Blue.


Interior Features
  • The FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KN dryer has 7 cycles, 12 options, 4 dryness levels and 5 temperature levels. In short, the electric dryer is highly customizable to the needs of the particular user. The 7 drying cycles cover the drying and care of the most common fabrics. The 12 options have additional fabric care features.
  • An electronic Moisture Sensor gauges the temperature level and cycle duration that will be required by a certain load based on the amount of moisture found in that load. For example, the sensor may detect that the load is not that wet, possibly because the garments have already been wrung dry. The appliance will then use a shorter cycle and a lower temperature if one of the automatic drying cycles will be chosen.
  • Included among the temperature levels is the Sanitize temperature level, the temperature level that has helped the FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KN earn an NSF certification. At this temperature level, the appliance kills 99.9% of the bacteria found in the garments. Drenched or only slightly damp, any load that requires proper germ-killing has to use the Sanitize temperature level.
  • The FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KN, no matter what the chosen option and cycle are, operates quietly. The user does not have to bear a lot of noise and vibration just because a particular load is heavy. The silent operation is made possible by SilentDesign technology.

  • The painted drum is built to remain rust-free despite exposure to a lot of moisture.
  • The reversible door allows the FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KN to be placed even in cramped areas. The user has the choice of opening the door towards the more spacious direction.
