encuetoo 9/21/2018

Purchased a washer dryer a few weeks ago with some hesitation. We had a front load washer and were very dispeased. The electrolux washer has alleviated all al my concerns. Very satisfied that this washer does not retain water in the gasket on the door and has lived up to all that was said about it.

Junk out of the box

dc22 9/17/2018

From the first time the dryer was turned on at delivery there was a loud rapid fire tapping sound when the dry was running. We had to wait for the store to send out a service person. He said the motor would need to be replaced. Instead the dryer is being replace. The store is giving us a new dryer. Meanwhile we have had to put up with three weeks of listing to the noise and the hassle of waiting for service to come out and now wait again for the second dry to be delivered. The worst part is I purchased the new dry to replace out previous Electrolux dryer that was only six year old be required service two or three times each year we had it. I guess my bad for choosing to buy another Electrolux.

Fancy you should ask

Joni79 9/16/2018

I have a video of the disappointing results of my long awaited dryer. The clothes tumble to the front of that wiiiide door and there they cling escaping all the tumbling and heating and the releasing of wrinkles. When I have nothing else to do I dash to its side opening the door letting the wrinkled damp pieces escape to the floor. I toss them back in press start and pray. Unable to send MY video its a duzy. The tight ball of one king sized sheet was equally entertaining. So far the washer just washes no entertainment. In a week the delivery truck will be back to see if leveling is the culprit. Stay tuned to the dryer door show I am so dissapointed

CaptainCyler 8/28/2018

My wife and I bought our first ever Washer and Dryer and they were there Electrolux brand. We had never heard of them but we fell in love with the style features and price at the appliance store. When we had them installed we were ecstatic and eager to try them. The Dryers steam dry and its sanitize dry are so cool Leaves our clothes smelling extra clean and fresh. Towels have always been a problem with our past washer and dryer that we were renting they always seemed to smell like mildew after a few days. With these washer and dryers there is no way the soap is left in your towels and with the sanitizing dry it kills any bacteria We are so in love we will be electrolux customers for life.

Product quality and features changed

cmatjadr 8/28/2018

Purchased my first Electrolux washer dryer in 2009 Wave Touch Turquoise. I was truly impressed with the heavy duty quality of these machines and the wonderful features on them. Unfortunately this year my washer had troubles and it was cheaper to buy new rather than repair the old. Since Turquoise was no long available I decided to purchase both washer dryer for the match. Expecting the same quality and features I was extremely disappointed after the first use of both. The heavy duty quality is gone as are the wonderful features I became accustom to using. I can no longer use the high and max spin due to the washer now being so light weight the machine moves around too much. The timing of cycles have changed as well as temperature use. Also the washer uses even less water than did my Wave Touch and clothing do not come out clean. I have to use a laundry booster now. The dryer is no different. The built quality is gone as are certain features. With the light weight metal of the machines gone is the quietness of both washer and dryer. The dryers reverse tumble feature for bedding was an excellent feature gone. The dryer lint screen is so big it now has a ledge to catch small items and they stay on it but it does catch more lint now. Clothes come out with wrinkles even when Perfect Steam Wrinkle Release and Extended Tumble options are used. I never had this problem before. The temperature setting even on low is too hot. The dryer door glass seal is a dirt and fine lint dust catch all that requires a toothpick to clean out. The completion beep on both machines is highly annoying as it goes on and on rather than just once. Electrolux I am extremely disappointed with your washer and dryer. You took a quality product and turned it into an overpriced tin can and lost me as a customer in the process. I also warned others I knew who had purchased the Wave Touch after I bought mine as they were impressed as well. My recommendation to them has been to pay the cost of having it fixed if they encounter the same troubles as I did. Otherwise look at another brand. The LuxCare model is not worth the money.

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?

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.

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.
