We purchased both the Frigidaire washer and electric dryer in black. We have received many compliments on the set, both the washer and dryer look great. I wish I had purchased the stands for under both, though, as they would have been great for storage and also make them at a more comfortable level. They are both very easy to use, though you have to turn the nobs back and forth just to turn it on and adjust any of the temperature settings, etc. There are a lot of options on the washer and dryer, most of which I do not know how to use and therefore do not make much use of :-) I have had a few occaisions where the washer does not drain completely, I am not sure what the problem is, as the issue is intermittent. Also, I've found that if I close the washer door after I've completed a load, I get a lot of condensation on the door and then a very musty odor, so I've started to just leave the door open all the time. I love the front-loading washer, as it is very water efficient and washes quickly.
