A few years ago my wife and I bought a Frigidaire Gallery edition http://www.frigidaire.com/ washer and dryer. They both worked fine through the warrantee period ( one year ) but shortly afterwards things started falling apart. First it was the plastic knobs on the washer and dryer, they broke, then the Rear bearing support cup on the dryer melted. It is so stupid to have a plastic support that the metal drum spins in. You are just asking for problems. If it was made out of metal it would last a lifetime. Now the washer drive belt broke and the dryer support cup is melting again. My parents had a washer and dryer that lasted for almost 20 years without all these problems. I will never buy Frigidiare again. What a pain. The good news is that there is a great website http://www.repairclinic.com/ that tells you how to fix the things and sells the parts at reasonable prices. Check them out. :)
Addendum to my post;
I forgot about having to change the dryer belt & the idler pulley on the dryer also a year ago.
