I went to see my public defender yesterday and had him help me with my case against Social Security. I went to go catch the 4PM bus at the mall around pass the time away, I went to go look at the Kenmore line up at Sears. I went to the appliance department where they have the line of discontinued/damaged models and saw a Frigidaire 3.5cu ft washer tagged from $899 to $251. I got a salesman too help me make the deal and he remembered me from a while ago when he was questioning the reversability of front loading washer doors. Anyway, I had exactly $180 in cash and he sold the unit,a discontinued model never used and still with shipping stuff on it for $150!!!!!!I am picking it up tomorrow.WOO HOO!!!!

The "Extra Rinse" option . . .

is going to be your new best friend.


But for $180 I can see how that's a tough offer to refuse.

You're going to love it.

But keep Tide away from it. I have the same machine and using Tide HE means extra rinse and repeat the cycle to get a decent rinse.

Euro detergents mean perfect rinse always and NO extra rinse option.

tide he is not a bad detergent when i first got my whirlpool duet washer i NEVER HAD TO DO AN EXTRA RINSE OR REPEAT THE CYCLE so i can say that tide he is pretty safe to use with your machine the only time i use the extra rinse option is to remove the smell of detergent.

GLTF2490FS. Sears claimed it is a discontinued model but Lowes sells it for $629. I am pretty sure,like the Kenmore that is similar to it and I had about a year ago,it too will have the adjustable water level pressure valve.Those have a screw you turn counter clockwise to increase the water level. The Kenmore I had was filling just above the door opening and giving excellent results.I sold it to a customer for $599 including the 1 year warranty. They keep in touch with me and say nothing but good things about it.As far as detergents are concerned, I prefer Gain original scent.I use it (not the HE) in my new Miele along with the Gain fabric softener.The wash gets real clean. So clean,you can smell it!!!
