In the last month I have purchased a Frigidaire top loading washer and its matching dryer. What is the purpose of the indexing wash tub? This washer has a straight vain agitator as well. I do know the history of these machines are not good but hopefully they will last until I am ready to own a house and can get something better built. Thanks for the responses to question. I know there are experts on these boards!!

This is a new washer, so this question needs to be posted in the Deluxe forum.

The Frigidaire mecahnism is a decendant of the Franklin transmission. This inexpensive transmission does not have a tub brake and did not include a spring that would have held the tub stationary during agitation.
