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.

easy to operate

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.

JudyC86 4/9/2018

I bought this washer over 6 months ago. It has been very reliable. I can wash big loads and so have cut down on the time it has taken me to do my laundry. I can also wash smaller loads. 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.

Incredible appliances

315sgirl 4/5/2018

We purchased the Electrolux washer and dryer a month ago and are very happy with their performance and features. We were surprised how quiet both units are while running and are very pleased with their versatile functionality. We have a tiny laundry room and opted to stack the units. It worked beautifully and added a nice change to the space giving us more room for storage. Overall we are very satisfied with our purchase and look forward to the loads of fun in the years to come.

ok

DeeOmaha 4/2/2018

I purchased this by salesman recommendation and its ok. i wouldnt purchase it again. A few things are: 1. if the load is large or small it doesnt toss great creating more wrinkles 2. the steam function really doesnt make a difference. The clothes are wet when they go in so steam doesnt matter. Adding steam to dry clothes to release wrinkles ONLY works if you have a medium load because of number 1 and then it helps but we had an old dryer that we threw a clean wet towel in for the steam function and it worked just the same so I think all the steam functions are a waste of money and 3. the lint trap is odd not easy to use and difficult to scrape off felt strip that is already coming off the trap.

Very nice dryer

slimrat83 4/1/2018

We bought his after moving into a new house to pair with the matching washer. So far it seems to do very well especially liking the wrinkle release and steam settings. Only the most stubborn shirts need ironed now My one complaint is the lint screen. Lint seems to escape around the edges of the lint filter and sticks to the felt-like washer around the outer edges. We have to vacuum it off every second or third load as it really sticks the bristles.

Awesome Appliances

Lake Bluff Condo getaway 3/26/2018

9 years ago we purchased a get away condo. We had the condo upgraded to our liking but didnt upgrade the stacked washer/dryer since we didnt use it often. Well it started making all sorts of noises a few months ago so my hubby researched options for our limited 31 wide space and found these large capacity Electrolux stackable front loading washer/dryer appliances. With 4.2 cubic feet capacity washer relatively quiet operation which is important in our condo unit and energy efficiency we cant say enough how happy we are with these new Electrolux appliances.

Silvio P 3/13/2018

About a month ago we finally bought our own washer and dryer after having rented for many years. We did our homework and tried to find something that was a balance between environmentally friendly and good cleaning power for all the messes our toddler makes. We showed up to the store to look at them in person and I recognized them as the same ones my mother-in-law has The fact that two of us independently did our research and came up with this washer and dryer was what sealed the deal. Weve been very pleased with them.

JCJE 3/7/2018

Our old washer went out so we purchased new washer and dryer. They are both nice but a few things we dont like. One thing is that the end of cycle chime is only audible if you are standing next to the machine another is that at the end of a wash cycle soap suds are still hanging around the door area. We have also had a few times where the cloths were still very wet after the load was done. All in all I would say that these are very average machines.
