The key to getting the most from your investment in a Frigidaire washer is using the engineer-approved Frigidaire washer parts and accessories for installation and general maintenance. Like all major home appliances, washers are an expensive investment in time-savings and convenience. Your investment will continue paying off for years to come with the right care, and this starts with installation of your new appliance using only Frigidaire washer parts.
Basics of Affordable and Effective Installation
First, it is worth noting how products are engineered. Anyone familiar with computers, for instance, knows that a router from one brand will work with a repeater from another brand, but there will be a decline in speed and possibly compatibility issues that show up later. The same is true for most appliances. They are designed to fit the industry standard equipment, but they are specifically engineered for compatibility with a particular brand of equipment.
The bottom line is that the washer hose from your old washer will likely work with a Frigidaire model. This might be seen as a way to save money on installation. However, the use of only new Frigidaire washer parts will save more money in the long run. When it's time to install your new washer, purchase a Universal 6' Stainless Steel Washer Fill Hose from Frigidaire. This one piece of equipment is all you will need for basic installation.
Maintenance and Repair with Frigidaire Washer Parts
Washers are one of the few appliances that require almost no general maintenance. There are aesthetic concerns, of course, like keep the washer clean and replacing a damaged Galvanized Washer Panel. The only real concerns with performance, however, are the rumbling associated with uneven footing and damaged washer hose screens.
Rumbling and shaking may damage the washer over time, but you can stop this with the addition of KE Shake Away Plus Vibration Isolation Pads. These will cut down on noise, protect your washer from vibration damage, and protect your flooring. The Screen Repair Kit from Frigidaire washer parts makes it easy for anyone to handle this basic repair without calling a professional.
