Frigidaire GLTF2940FE 3.5 Cu. Ft. Gallery Series Front-Load Washer

Discontinued


The GLTF2940FE is a front-loading washer that comes with a number of features that every user will find useful and convenient such as 14 wash cycles and the Tumble Action Cleaning system. See the list below for its key features and read on to learn more about the pros and cons of buying this washer.

Key features

  • The stainless steel wash drum resists rust and corrugation over many uses and reduces the risk of damaging the fabrics.
  • Electronic controls are easy to program.
  • The Tumble Action Cleaning System uses the tumble and plunge technology that effectively removes dirt deeply.
  • The 14 wash cycles allows users to customize the wash cycle according to the kinds of fabric in the load.
  • Cycle status lights tell you how long before the cycle is done.
  • On/off cycle signals lets the user know if the load is done washing with an audible alarm.
  • Heavy/light soil options allow users to choose between the two when washing soiled clothing.
  • The Advanced Rinse Technology gives the load a final rinse with a fresh batch of water to remove traces of detergent and soap as well as odors.
  • It comes with an adjustable 12 hour delay start that lets users set the time when they want to start the machine.
  • The estimated time remaining indicator lets the users know much longer before the cycle is done washing.
  • The control lock secures the controls so that they are not changed even if you have kids fiddling with the buttons.
  • The door lock light indicates if the doors are locked or not so you can check it before starting the wash cycle.
  • The optional pedestal lets you adjust the height of the pedestal for more convenient loading and unloading.

    Advantages

  • One of the main advantages is the stainless steel wash drum, which can withstand faster spin cycles compared to wash drums made of plastic or porcelain.
  • Stainless steel wash drums are also resistant to rusting and chipping. Rust can discolor fabrics, while chipping can snag fabrics and cause rips in the cloth.
  • Another advantage is the audible signal.
  • No more checking in on the wash from time to time to see if the cycle is done.

    Disadvantages

  • One main disadvantage is the odor that comes from the drum after a number of uses.
  • This is due to the accumulation of stagnant water and gunk in the drum, which makes for the perfect breeding ground for bacteria.
  • Another disadvantage is the noise.
  • This is not a very quiet machine so you may want to place a padding underneath the machine to deaden the noise.
  • The electronic controls can work erratically as well.
  • If the machine is plugged on, the machine can turn on by itself, which can be disconcerting for some.
