Frigidaire FAQE7017KR Affinity, Front Load Electric Dryer 7.0 Cubic Feet

Classic Red and NSF Certified with Auto/Timed Drying Cycles

Classic Red and NSF Certified with Auto/Timed Drying Cycles

With auto and timed drying cycles to choose from, the user can customize the settings or leave most of the work to the FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KR electric dryer. The dryer, after all, comes with electronic Moisture Sensor, 4 dryness levels and 5 temperature selections. One of the temperature selections included is the Sanitize temperature level that has helped the product achieve an NSF certification.

Interior Features
  • The FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KR has 7 available program cycles, but has 6 timed cycles and 6 automatic cycles. The timed cycles will work according to the userĂ­s need to control the amount of time to finish each load. The automatic cycles, on the other hand, will work at indefinite times but with thorough drying in their agenda.
  • Temperature selections are important because garments dry faster at a higher temperature. Of course, there may also be garments that cannot withstand high temperatures. Delicate fabrics, for example, may need to be dried under a lower temperature even if it means a longer drying cycle duration. As for killing bacteria, a high temperature is required. There is a Sanitize temperature level that allows the dryer to kill 99.9% of bacteria. This level has helped the product earn the NSF certification.
  • The electronic Moisture sensor included in the FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KR is the one responsible for detecting just how much drying the load still needs to achieve the selected dryness level of the user. There are 4 dryness levels. It is possible for a user to want a slightly damp level, which may help achieve easy ironing conditions.
  • The FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KR operates silently because of the SilentDesign technology that has been used to support the
    product even when it is drying heavy loads.

    Exterior Features

  • In Classic Red, the FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KR is striking. Because the color is attractive, some users may want it displayed in a place other than a hidden laundry area. There are also alternative colors for Affinity series dryers with the same features. The colors are Classic Black, Classic Blue, Classic Silver and Classic White.
  • The painted drum is designed to withstand moisture, which it will definitely be exposed to.
  • The reversible door gives the FRIGIDAIRE FAQE7017KR a space-saver. There is no need to open the door at an angle that is either uncomfortable to the user or not allowed by the space available.
  • 7.0 cubic feet of capacity should enable the user to finish all his laundry in a short span of time.
