Frigidaire FFSG5115PA

Companion Washer - FFFS5115PA Review




Dryer Pros and Cons
Drying Quickly refreshes lightly soiled clothes without washing. Generates steam during the refresh cycle to reduce wrinkles, remove odors, and/or sanitize clothes. Nearly eliminates the need to iron.
Cycles Number of available cycles and options is about average for a new clothes dryer. Generally the more cycles and options you have to choose from, the better the chance of meeting your clothing care needs.  
Drum Designed with a stainless steel dryer drum that is more durable than porcelain or plastic. Stainless steel resists odor absorption or discoloration and reduces the amount of static build-up in your clothing.
Capacity Internal capacity of the FFSG5115PA dryer is about average for a new dryer. Dryers range in size from a minimum of about 3.5 cu ft to a maximum of about 9.0 cu ft. The average size is about 7.2 cu ft.  
Sensor Uses a moisture sensor to measure the water content of clothing as it tumbles, and automatically shuts-off the cycle when dry. Prevents clothing from being damaged by overheating and saves on energy costs.
Price Price per cubic foot of capacity is about average for a new clothes dryer and is rated GOOD for affordability. Dryers can often be purchased on-sale at 10%-20% under the manufacturer's MSRP.  


Frigidaire FFSG5115PA Dryer


Performance Ratings
Temp
Settings
5 Settings - Provides an ample number of temperature settings to select from. It's important to match the heat level to the type of fabric being laundered; helps prevent damage and alleviate wrinkles.
Steam
Cycle
Steam Drying - If you're in a hurry and just need to get the wrinkles out of your clothes, or freshen-up lightly soiled garments, the steam generation cycle on this model will prove to be very handy.
Sanitize
Cycle
Sanitize Cycle - Sanitizes items with a high-temp cycle that kills many forms of household bacteria or allergens. Especially useful for stuffed animals, pillows, and other non-washable items. NSF Certified.
MSRP $1149 - Manufacturer's Price is about average for a new dryer and is rated GOOD for overall price. In addition to the Frigidaire FFSG5115PA MSRP, it's also beneficial to check the price per cubic foot.  
Warranty Frigidaire 1-Year Parts, 1-Year Labor - Industry standard warranty for clothes dryers. A few manufacturers offer a two-year warranty on parts, but dryer warranties are generally not as good as washers.


Convenience Ratings
Stackable Stackable - Like most new front-load matching dryers, this model can be stacked vertically with a washer to save space, and allows one unit to be accessed comfortably at shoulder level. Great for small rooms.
Reverse
Door
Reversible Door - The Frigidaire FFSG5115PA dryer door is flexible and can be switched to open from right-to-left (with a washer sitting on the right side), or left-to-right (with a washer sitting on the left side).
Drum
Light
Drum Light - Includes an internal light that automatically switches on when the dryer door opens. Almost all new dryers come equipped with this nearly essential feature so you can see to unload your clothes.
Filter
Indicator
No Filter Indicator - There is no visual reminder on the FFSG5115PA to change the lint filter. Most of us are remiss in this area and a clogged filter light is very helpful. Available on about 50% of new dryers.  
Dryer
Rack
No Dryer Rack - Does not include a dryer rack that allows tumble-free drying for items such as tennis shoes, ball caps, sweaters, or stuffed animals. Dryer racks can usually be purchased separately.  
Venting Must Be Vented - Over 95% of new dryer models must be vented to the outside of your home with a duct running from your dryer. A few ventless models are available if an outside duct is not practical.  


Control Ratings
Display LED Display - Just look at the dryer while you're working to see how much time is left before the clothes are finished. Includes a remaining cycle time display that provides time and sometimes program status.
Controls Rotary-Electronic - Designed with a modern digital control system that makes cycle or option selection easy and convenient. About 85% of new dryers are now fitted with highly-functional electronic controls.
Delay
Start
Delay Start - Fit the laundry around your busy schedule by programming the dryer to start at a later, more convenient time. Allows you to plan around noise concerns or home departure / arrival times.
Custom
Cycle
No Custom Cycle - Like most new dryers, you cannot program a custom cycle with temperature settings and options that you use the most. Convenient capability that's only available on about 30% of new dryers.  
Phone
Diagnosis
No Phone Diagnostics - You can't connect to the manufacturer's repair center and have dryer problems directly diagnosed over the phone. About 20% of new dryers have some type of phone connectivity.  
Smart
Grid
Not Smart-Grid Capable - Cannot be hooked into the present or future local utility smart-grid and programmed to operate when utility rates are lower. Most new dryers are still not smart-grid capable.
