Not a TC, just observations based upon the fair amount of research I did before recently purchasing my own washer and dryer:
Frigidaire dryers tend to have average to above-average reviews. However, it's washers tend to have mixed reviews at best with complaints about short life spans and service calls. Also, visiting the MFG website reveals that these models are on the lower end of its offerings for washers and dryers. With that said, I think $764 (delivered?) is a good price for a matching set of front loaders with very little effort as far as huning down the deal. Unless you find the pedestals on clearance, factor that cost in as well (~$150 - 200 each).
I ended up with a Frigidaire FASG7073 gas dryer via Sears for $495 (shipped) via Sears (FW deal back in May), and a Bosch Vision WFVC5400UC washer via local Sears Outlet for $399 (picked up). Both have yet to be installed (in the house I have yet to go to closing on) And I'm still hunting for a decent price on a pedestal for each!
do youreself a HUGE favor and buy a good front loader washer for a little extra money, you will be much better off. most front-loaders less than $500 are pitiful to say the least. the dryers are okay but washing is what you need the most.
We've had the this dryer for a couple years...anything that has a drawstring (hooded sweatshirt, shorts, etc) or thinner straps on a tank or cami get so twisted they end up ripping off the shirt completely or the knot needs to be cut off the drawstring. This happens no mater what cycle we use. Can be very frustrating...wouldn't purchase it again.
Thanks for the tips. I would not be happy if a new washer ruined my clothes. I'm currently pregnant and almost all my shirts have straps in the back or thin top ones. Not to mention the hoodies we wash in cooler weather. It's bad enough buying stuff when you only wear it for one season (kids) but to have to replace it, that would be frustrating.
