Specifically, the Frigidaire Gallery Series washer and dryer we bought 5 years ago. You can't put any clothing with straps in the dryer, or the lint filter frame snags the straps and the rotation of the dryer drum twists them right off. Frigidaire says that's not a problem that they need to address, so we have to hang-dry everything with straps. Recently, the matching front-load washing machine began failing in mid-process with an E10 error that resolves to an E13 if you put the processor in diagnostics mode. That purports to be a "too long to fill" error. I talked to the service-person at the appliance store where we bought this pathetic crap, and he said he'd have to come out to "look at" the machine. After searching for this error code on-line, I have found that the service-people take a "poke and hope" approach. First replace the pressure switch. If that doesn't work, then replace the fill valve assembly. Then if that didn't fix the problem, replace the entire control board. I priced the two cheapest parts (switch and valve) and that flimsy plastic stuff came to over $100 without shipping. I could replace those myself, leaving myself in the hole for a "fix" that might not work, and then have to decide whether to gamble on buying and installing a new control board. This morning, I opened up the machine and unplugged, wiped, and re-connected every connector in the wiring harness, hoping that there might have been a corrosion problem or a poor connection that would resolve the problem. No dice. the wiring harness on that machine is only slightly less complex than my last Harley. That's just ridiculous. I'm going to have to hunt for a new washing machine. Hopefully, a primitive top-loader with no bells and whistles and no processor - just a mechanical timer, motor, transmission, and pump. The last washing machine we had lasted over 20 years and was still going strong when we left it in the house that we sold. The drum bearing on the matching dryer started howling after about 15 years because the pads that the dryer drum ride on were old and worn, letting the drum tip a bit. I changed the drum bearing and the glides. That's the only maintenance either machine ever needed. I know we have slid into a "throw-away" mentality in the past couple of decades, but it sucks having to replace a $700-800 washing machine after 5 years because the repair costs a likely to be greater than its present value.
