Wow, Frigidaire was doing everything in their power to avoid having to switch to a front-loader while still producing a combo!

It seems the whole tub oscillates like the Kelvinator/ABC machines, just like the GE design, during wash and dry cycles. Centric-basket drying--too fun! I noticed in an Apex ad that it bounces the basket after spin to fluff the clothes up as well; I wonder if Frigidaire took the idea from Apex...

The Bouncing Combo!

Isn't that fun! I saw the Apex fluff the clothes by wobbling the basket after the final spin and it does work. The clothes come off the sides and start to circulate without any water.

I do have to wonder though if it was enough action to remove the wrinkles from the clothes like a tumbler. Interesting idea though, I wonder if they built a prototype?

More Frigidaire Combos to come.

Hi Arthur, I don't have that many loaded yet so they will start to repeat soon.
