Hi again,

I recently moved again for another internship (This would likely be my last one). This is the set that I'm using for the year. I've never really heard of Crosley until now, maybe I have before but I just don't remember. I've done a little research, turns out they are manufactured by two of my most favorite appliance companies of all time, Whirlpool and Frigidaire. But, I'm curious to know about who actually made this particular set? I typed up the model number of the dryer and unfortunately nothing came up. I'd assume the washer would likely get the same results.

So far it's been about a week that I've used this, here are my thoughts so far. They seem basic to me for a frontloader which I like, it wouldn't make sense for me to have something with features that I would hardly use. They both wash and dry really good so far. And I like that I don't need to bend over while loading and unloading from the dryer. The only downfall so far is the height of the washer. Have the same issue with the Duet that I've used a couple years ago but I think I can get used to it again. One thing I'm trying to figure out is how the Options Select feature works. I couldn't find the manual for this so I will continue to research. Anyways, it's too early for me to tell but so far I'm liking both of these. Are there some things that I should get tips on or to watch out for with this set?

Another thing that I would like to ask is what are your overall thoughts, opinions, or experiences with Crosley? Is the company really good? Would it be better to buy a Whirlpool or Frigidaire branded set instead of Crosley? Were there any lawsuits that have happened with Crosley before? And what kind of cleaners should I use to get rid of smells inside of front load washers should mold ever get inside? Thanks!

These look more like they were produced by Frigidaire/Electrolux.

That set is Frigidaire/Electrolux.

The topload sets are still Whirlpool built. GE/Haier recently started building kitchen pieces for Crosley. They are sold exclusively to servicing dealers and have better warranty than the basic manufacturer's models they replace. We've sold Crosley for about 30 years and they've been very good to us.

Does someone own the Crosley brand?
Or are they an independent sales/licensing bizz?

By their website it looks like right now they carry a mix of GE/Haier, Whirlpool, and Frigidaire/Electrolux, as well as a three rack dishwasher I don't recognize. The Crosley-labelled Maytag Neptune was well known to some members on this site a few years back.

I think that 3 rack machine "Crosley Professional" is from GE.

That would definitely make sense. I didn't know GE/Haier had entered the 3-rack ring, I'll have to check them out.

The zdm6502as Professional isn't GE;

I'm under the impression that it's a Samsung based on the little red "Orbitwash" spinner in the back corner. Haven't actually seen one in person yet.

That Professional model could be Samsung, but it could also be Haier or some other Chinese producer based upon the racks themselves.
