pierpaoli 7/30/2018

I bought this a couple months ago for my new home. The capacity is perfect. I recently washed a twin comforter and this machine was able to completely dry it. I especially love how the dryer filter is closed. When I remove the filter to clean it there is no extra lint in the cavity. All lint is contained in the filter. Im very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend

Horrible dryer

Unhappy in WI 7/30/2018

Ive had this dryer about 6 weeks and am extremely unhappy with it. Shirts t-shirt and tops in general come out full of wrinkles . . as if theyve been wadded up in a ball . .even when using Wrinkle Release and removing them as soon as the dryer stops. The lint trap seems to work well as a lint trap but when the dryer is running the clothes tend to pile up in a heap on top of it. I originally purchased the earlier model but the store discovered Electrolux had discontinued it. This model is supposedly an update. However I read no reviews about the previous model leaving clothes so wrinkled. In addition there are no instructions about how long to use the steam function. I tried that to remove the wrinkles in t-shirts but it didnt help. This is the most expensive dryer Ive ever owned and its the poorest performing. If I could return this dryer I would.

Poor door design

Linda in Lewes 7/27/2018

We have had this dryer for less than 2 weeks and are so disappointed We have the same issue as Jack 22 and priskilly. The clothes pile in front of the door and at times sit there for the whole cycle. We have been told by Electrolux telephone support to elevate the front of the dryer - no help. Visited our dealer - no help other than to schedule a service call. Our old Electrolux had a convex door and a thinner lint filter. The convex door pushed the clothes away back into the drum. This new machine has a flat door. Why was this changed? As you can see on the video the clothes are blocking the LuxCare Lint Shield and will stay there the entire cycle. We are concerned about a fire . Also where is the lint going? Will Electrolux step up to the plate to correct this issue or do we have a $850 laundry folding table?

Sleek and spacious

alicat1312 7/26/2018

We purchased almost a month ago and I am still excited about doing laundry Clothes that had seemed to be permanently dirty-thanks to farming-came out looking brand new. The old top loader I had before never seemed to really get anything clean and I had no clue what kind of difference the right washer could make. I am very impressed with how quiet both the washer and dryer are and they both have worked wonderfully-with plenty of room for large loads. Great purchase and the price was affordable.

Now what we expected

Jack 22 7/22/2018

We bought this dryer a month ago and we are very disappointed in its performance. It does not dry all the clothes. Small and medium sized items pile up in front of the door and do not get dry. Some shirts just sit there and part of it will twist around at the door front and become very wrinkled and not dry

terry5208 7/15/2018

I bought this dryer a month ago. It has great features. I like the closed lint trap that contains the lint till you get to the garbage. I love the steam refresh option. It works nicely to remove wrinkles from a load left in the dryer too long. Most of all it dries each load with just one setting.

Great Duo

JDoh 7/13/2018

Ive had these for about a month and they are working out very well. The washer barely needs any detergent to get the clothes clean and I like the steam feature in both the washer and dryer. The washer always has a bit of water on the window and pooled on the rubber seal at the door when finishing I keep a small towel handy and dry it after every load. The dryer sometimes needs a few more minutes to completely dry a load. Im so much more pleased with these than my previous washer/dryer that these things are ok.

Clothes get stuck in the front loading door

priskilly 6/27/2018

Clothes get stuck in the front loading door during the dry cycle and the clothes that get stuck dont get dry and end up all wrinkly. Then you have to set a time dry and the minimum option is 30 minutes. Not great flexibility.

Excellent Performance

arnej 6/20/2018

The dryer is only about 2 months old so I cant comment on long term reliability but so far our results have been outstanding. The steam works great and eliminates the need for a lot of ironing. Instant refresh is works great. We find that the normal dry works best almost all the time. Towels on the towel setting max dry seemed too dry and scratchy. Delicates set at Less dry worked well for a down comforter. The sound at the end of the cycle is very low and cant be heard unless were in the basement. This is the only thing I would suggest improving
