Frigidaire GLTF2940FS Review


This front-loading washing machine boasts a 3.5 cubic-foot capacity, stainless steel wash basket, automatic dispense, and "estimated time remaining" indicator. With three wash/four spin speed combinations, as well as four temperature combinations, this unit scores points with users for getting clothes clean while conserving water and energy; experts like its performance for the price but some owners report problems with the circuit board.

The average consumer rating on many Frigidaire GLTF2940FS review sites is at least four out of five stars, and experts' reviews are just as favorable. Inexpensive washing machines are notoriously hit-or-miss, but for a little more than $500, the Frigidaire GLTF2940FS front-loader (starting at $538) performs surprisingly well. The big selling points for this model are the water and energy efficiency and how well it cleans.

Users' Frigidaire GLTF2940FS reviews say it's easy to use and clothes emerge practically dry. One review on Abt appreciatively notes that the fast spin cycle significantly reduces dryer time and another review on AJMadison reports the machine runs smoothly and quietly when installed correctly (i.e., read the directions). When it comes to cleaning, reviewers say it executes quite well, even on cloth diapers.

Perfect this model is not, however. Critics write in Frigidaire GLTF2940FS reviews that the rubber door gasket collects water, a relatively common gripe with front loaders, and that small washables may get trapped in the seal. One owner reports in a review on Amazon of needing to do some DIY repair work when a baby sock clogged the unit's water pump.

The front-loading Frigidaire GLTF2940FS, with capacity of 3.5 cubic feet, is well-rated by experts and the majority of consumers. Although we found reports about water leakage, failed door latches, and malfunctioning circuit boards, the general consensus seems to be that it does its job well but may not be around for the long haul. Frugal consumers considering this model may want to get the extended warranty.
