Frigidaire High Efficiency Laundry Centers meet Department of Energy’s Energy Star guidelines and criteria to be labeled as High Efficiency. They use less water and energy by incorporating elements such as low-profile agitators and sensory technology. Learn more about Energy Star guidelines here.
Frigidaire High Efficiency Laundry Centers have low-profile agitators that clean laundry in a different way than traditional washing machines. These high performance Laundry Centers with low-profile agitators are designed to use less water and energy while being gentle on your clothes. The low profile agitators also free up space for larger loads, making it easier to add and remove laundry.
With Frigidaire High Efficiency Laundry Centers, the first 2 minutes of the cycle are spent sensing the size of a load. The water level, agitation intensity and vibration tuning are set based on the load size that is detected. Water will enter the tub once the sensory cycle is complete.
Always place your detergent and laundry in the tub first, before starting the cycles. Frigidaire High Efficiency Laundry Centers are designed to use less water and energy. To maximize efficiency, the first 2 minutes of the cycle are spent sensing the load. When the sensing cycle is complete, the optimal amount of water will be dispensed to achive efficient cleaning performance.
Be sure to add your detergent or POD to the bottom of the tub before adding your laundry. This will ensure that the chemicals are properly dissolved and mixed in the wash water.
Note: High Efficiency Laundry Centers have controls that supply cooler water as a means to save energy. Water temperatures may seem cooler than traditional laundry centers.
Check that the hookups from the wall are attached to the correct inlet valve on your machine. There is an H for Hot and C for Cold embossed on the back of the unit for each hookups.
Check that you have selected the appropriate temperature setting for your load.
Measure hot water temperature at the washer or at a nearby faucet with a thermometer. It should read at least 120°F. If it does not, adjust your water heater.
The length of the wash cycle can vary depending on a number of factors including which cycle is selected. Typically, the Normal Cycle will take 60-80 minutes.
Ensure that your load is balanced. See the FAQ on how to avoid Out-of-Balance conditions.
Double-check that the Laundry Center Washer lid is completely down. The washer will beep once and lock to begin the sensory cycle after the Start button is pressed.
We strongly recommend that you use HE-rated detergent. Frigidaire Laundry Centers are High Efficiency machines that use significantly less water than traditional washing machines. HE- rated detergents are designed for lower water levels.
