Smooth and Quiet - NG to LP Hard

Carey 6/5/2018

This dryer works as intended. The design is very cool and futuristic. My toddler son loves playing with the dials and calls it his spaceship. The dryer is very smooth and quiet. It is hard to know if it is running without looking at the clothes through the window. The reason for the 4 star rating is that clothes are still slightly moist when using the auto setting and the conversion from natural gas to liquid propane was very difficult compared to other dryers. The parts for conversion are not readily available and the entire dryers burner needed to be removed which was a long and painstaking process. Overall this is a good dryer and I would 100 recommend it for those who do not need to do a Natural Gas to LP conversion.

Reversible doors

HarpoVal 6/2/2018

I bought this machine as Electrolux has the only models with a reversible washer door. So far Im really loving all the features and results. Only complaint is that the end of cycle chime is so quiet that you really only hear it if youre standing next to the machine which is pointless.

Money saving

Scar64 5/27/2018

I bought this dryer about two months ago with the matching washer. It is sooooo nice knowing that your clothes not only smell really clean but also are really clean. I did about two months worth of research and window shopping but kept coming back to Electrolux because of the overall ratings. It was more than we planned to spend on a washer/dryer set however we are already starting to see the financial return on it. Our first months electricity went down $60.00 our former 3 year old dryer took twice as long to dry our gas bill went down $20.00 and our water bill went down $40.00.

Nice Machine

Anita Johnson 5/26/2018

When I bought this machine it came not working right. It only would dry for 10 minutes or less and then shut off. The appliance guy came and reset all the error codes and it started to work great. But it was short lived and went back to its bad ways. So they ordered a new circuit board and are going to install it on Tuesday. So Im hoping that will be my only problem.

Regretful purchase

Sadinohio 5/20/2018

I purchased this dryer a few months ago and one aspect has me regretting it. If you are drying a small or delicate load clothes get hung up on top of the grill of the lint filter at the front of the drum and do not dry. Instructions state to add a 2-3 larger items to improve tumbling. Since most of my loads are small we are empty nesters I have to add 3 bath towels to my loads and this does not work with delicate items. Im so disappointed.

What todays fabric care needed

Dbrem2885 5/1/2018

Ive had my Electrolux 517 for several months now. I replaced a stacked set in the hallway that never performed well. I wish I had bought this sooner. Paired with the 517 washer it stacks well in a closet and is silent when running...I dont even hear it until the end of cycle alarm. Gently releases wrinkles and reduces static even in dry arid air. And the steam cycle is great...I pop my down pillows in once a month and they come out refreshed and fluffy again. Excellent features and value and superior quality. I cant get over the quality and design. Im a realtor in Los Angeles and my high end clients are always looking for the best. Two clients have already purchased on my recommendation. Cant stop singing this Electrolux pairs praises

Quiet Machine

hobie7 4/30/2018

The machine is much quieter than the machine of 24 years we replaced. Have not tried the steam option yet but it appears to be a nice feature. One observation: the lint on the screen comes off fairly easily however the lint that collects around the seal of the actual door is stubborn and not so easy to remove. We keep a moist cloth to wipe around the door seal each time. Other than that minor inconvenience the machine is great.

Expensive and disappointed

Regency 4/24/2018

I bought a 500 series Washer and dryer. I am sadly disappointed with both so far. Both the pedastals need new closure corrections. I cannot make the washer accept the temp. and speed combinations I want.. The combinations are pre-set and not what I want. The dryer keeps depositing the clothes again the door collecting over the lint filter and therefore nothing is dry at the end of one sometimes two cycles. I dont have the ability to time dry for less than 30 minutes. I have a service appointment tomorrow and if some of these issues cannot be corrected I will want to get a different brand from my appliance store. I have previously had other brands and have been extremely happy with them. My appliance store recommended these for my new house saying that they have less service calls. Very disappointed with these expensive machines. And I am still waiting for my rebate $. Why does that take so long????

Great New Additions to Our Appliances

Bert and Ernie 4/24/2018

When it became time to purchase a new washer/dryer for our home we did the appropriate research to understand what worked best for our family. When we mentioned we were shopping for a new washer and dryer to our friends and family we heard so many positive experiences about Electrolux it certainly had us narrow our selection. Finally discussing the advantages of the Electrolux product with the Sales Team in Jamaica Plain helped confirm our final choice. The great news is we can now can tetify our units were absolutely the right choice for our family and have lived up to all the praise

Gail Weber 3/1/2018

It takes 3 times as long for my wash to dry. It balls up the clothes even though I stop the dryer unwrap the ball of clothes put it back in and start the dryer again. Still balls up the clothes and when the cycle is complete the clothes in the ball at still wet. Sheets are terrible in the dryer. Still Wet. Would not purchase this again nor recommend to anyone to purchase this brand. Unfortunately Im stuck with this unit for the rest of my life.

Continuing problems

Jeff C 3/1/2018

This dryer was purchased and within 1 month the belt was burned out. We were told there was too many clothes in it which was hard to believe given other dryers used. After fixing the belt it happened again when 2 bath mats were being dried. Hardly overloaded. It appears that there is something within the design that allows items to get stuck in between the spinning drum and there is no mechanism for the dryer to stop so it just keeps trying to turn. I have been extremely disappointed with this given that it is now less than 5 months old we were told from the appliance store that this was one of the better options.

I purchased this washer/dryer set in August 2017 and have already needed to have service completed on my dryer. Lint somehow was sucked up around my blower motor ?fire hazard. The service technician said this usually does not happen..and that all of my vents were clean so it was not due to a back up from venting. Im a little worried that this will happen again...
