It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty.

Poor desig

csm7 5/19/2018

The drum in the dryer is shallow relative to the door means clothes are pushed to the front of the dryer door and when you open the door the clothes fall out onto the floor. The repair guy said theres nothing that can be done because its a desig flaw.

So quiet

joates418 5/10/2018

I comparison shopped quite a bit before choosing this dryer. Our old dryer was nearly 30 years old so it takes a bit getting used to the digital fixed settings but so far they are right on. I did notice that with a super small load socks underwear some items get stuck at the bottom of the door but thats easily fixed by adding a towel. Love the steam refresh feature and the pleasant alarm tone.

KaraKos 5/4/2018

Purchased a new set washer and dryer about a month ago and am very satisfied so far. Havent used many of the features yet but happy with the overall cleanliness and outcome. Very quiet and user friendly. Would definitely recommend. Many people recommended to stay away from front loaders because they tend to leak. So far ours dribbled the first time we used it but hasnt at all since. Figured it just needed to break in. Installation was easy.

Rocstel7 5/4/2018

So far the Electrolux washer and dryer have been great. It took a few loads of laundry to figure out what settings I prefer but overall great. The washer does stay a wet a little in the front and I was informed to leave the door open to dry it out to prevent mold. This is fine and when you leave the door open it does dry out.

Dryer with a design flaw

TheOne 4/30/2018

Dries well when it can keep the clothes spinning. Smaller clothes just sit on the lint vent and dont end up spinning at all and stay damp. Otherwise things are good... Bigger clothes dry well. The look and controls are really nice. Not really noisy. Lot of options to choose from

Best Dryer by far

Channon222 4/26/2018

Bought the dryer back in February after doing extensive research. Not one complaint was found about this dryer. So we purchased the pair washer and dryer. I love the different settingsbut mostly the efficiency. I dont have to dryer my towels for 60 to 90 minutes like my old dryer which by the way was only 3 years old my towels are dry in 45 minutes. I love the pedestals and the reversible doors. Only company with this feature . The only issue I have which is minimal is the vent screen.. you have to use both hands to put back in place. But really its not anything major. Great machine and great value.

Great quiet dryer with huge capacity

click 4/21/2018

I bought this and the matching washer to go in the laundry closet in our new house where the dryer hookup is on the left so we needed a smaller closet size washer/dryer with adjustable door. Ive been really happy with the set. It has a huge capacity... Im always shocked at how much space is left in there. It runs quietly. The lint remover is great. There are lots of controls that are easy to navigate and I love that there are eco friendly settings. My only dislike is that I have yet to find a sensor dry setting that allows for both extra dry and low heat. Certain settings can only be combined with certain heat levels and clothes come out slightly damp when set to regular dry. I also wish there were a little more customizability on the time dry amounts smaller increments but thats not a big deal.

Quite good so far

Jodybow 4/15/2018

Were enjoying this great new washer. Much fancier than the one it replaced and more energy efficient faster cycles too. Why 4 stars and not 5? 1 Any spin speed above medium sounds like a helicopter landing on the house we have an upstairs laundry room so we dont use those--and thats a bummer because greater extraction = quicker drying time. 2 The LED light is really unpleasant but thats an LED issue not particular to this machine. 3 Propping the door open so the interior can dry is an excellent thing I think Electrolux missed an opportunity to have an actual door-propped setting rather than us just having to wing it. 4 IT WEIGHS 300 LBS. Seriously. I thought the delivery gentlemen were going to die getting it situated.

Haven 4/14/2018

Our drier was dying and needed to be replaced. We got this to match in model and style the Elux washer we bough a year ago. I like the the aesthetics and functionality ease of mode selection. It does not do very well with temperature sensor which is I think is main selling feature of this higher level make and model. So that is pretty disappointing. I am finding some settings that are more reliable so that the clothes do come out mostly dry. Because we live in a dry climate it isnt as big a deal. Secondly I find that the lint trap is difficult to re-insert. It just doesnt fit in well. Again disappointing given the higher end make and model. I would hesitate and do better research before buying electrolux again for washer or dryer.

Also I love the 18 minute quick wash. I also have noticed better drainage of the rubber door gasket thus no standing water to grow into mold or mildew. I really like this washer.
