Overall very good dryer

CLB1 4/17/2018

We bought the Electrolux washer and dryer to replace an older top loading washer and regular dryer that came with our house. Due to the configuration of our laundry room we needed the doors to open opposite of what is standard and Electrolux was one of very few that could do that. The Electrolux 617 dryer is easy to use yet has a variety of cycles and options. I recommend reading the manual to understand things like the difference between wrinkle release and extended tumble so you can use options to your advantage and also to know that fabric softener sheets used during steam cycles could stain your clothes. I do wish there were shorter time options on the Time Dry Cycle 30 minutes is the shortest. I usually choose auto dry but if the load isnt quite dry at the end of the cycle and I choose auto dry again it seems to go much longer than needed so a 10 minute time dry would be nice. Fortunately this doesnt happen often. I love that the window of the doors are clear rather than heavily tinted like so many now. Overall its a great dryer.

Lives Up To The Promise

Big Matt 4/13/2018

My mother bought an Electrolux through door-to-door sales in 1981 and still uses it today 2018. I could not wait to purchase the washer and dryer once out previous pair were no longer usable. We have been very impressed with the quality features efficiency and outcomes of our wash. Many of our dear friends in Europe have used your washers and dryer for years and have raved about the reliability and performance plus they are very attractive devices. We should have upgraded sooner and recommend them to all of our friends. Thank you for the continuation of you committment to quality and fine craftsmanship.

Amazing machine

cmcculloch 4/3/2018

We bought these after our old front loading set died- after purchasing them new in 2012. These are incredible. My clothes are soft. Fresh. CLEAN These machines are quiet - with low vibration. We have ours stacked on the main floor and we are on a basement. These machines have gotten out set in stained on clothing that I thought was stained forever. Nuts As a mom of 3- household of 5- Im so glad we went with these

Spacious and efficient

Nikolai 3/28/2018

Havent got a chance to use all the bells and whistles on this thing yet but its obvious that as the title says this thing is large and gets the drying done well. It is solid and well-made. We ended up stacking them with the kit. Nice that the bottom in the back is notched-out/offset so you are not stuck venting solely out the back if you dont want to - with a semi-rigid vent you can pipe it out the side.

We replaced our 1991 machines with the new Electrolux models and are very pleased. They have all the features that we looked for and ratings are excellent.. We did considerable research to make make sure our decision was the best one for the dollars spent. So far these have proven us right. These machines have all the needed features and then some are pretty quiet pleasing to the eye.

My clothes have never been cleaner

shannon14226 3/26/2018

This is my first front loader washer and I dont think Ill ever go back to a top loader. Its quiet easy to use and my clothes have never been cleaner The settings are perfect for all different levels of soiled clothing and its smart enough not to allow you to wash clothes on water temps that are not appropriate. Would definitely recommend

Unhappycamper 3/21/2018

I bought this machine in November and 3-4 weeks later it broke. It sounded like a plane was taking off in my house during the spin cycle. I called for warranty repair and had I the store I bought it from not come and taken it back after 1 month of pleading with them It would have taken at least 3 months for the repair to be completed.
