This is my second Electrolux dryer. I love the steam feature and the large capacity. It does an excellent job drying any fabric.

I bought a washer dryer pair a month ago and live both. The dryer has a large capacity and can fit a very large load. itÕs quiet and doesnÕt take long for a cycle. The wrinkle release feature works very well.

We purchased this dryer in June 2017. I've tried to resolve this with Electrolux to no avail. From early on, I noted that the lint screen didn't collect much lint. In Feb 2019, I noticed the lint screen wouldn't seat completely into the slot. When I removed the screen & looked into the slot, I found a build-up of lint that I had to WORK to unpack & remove. June 2019, the dryer was not drying, so I had it serviced. The tech replaced the lint screen & blower wheel assembly. He advised the only difference between the original screen & the new one was that Electrolux added a gasket. This was to correct a known issue with the original design - the screen did NOT trap the lint. Lint still collects in the lint trap area. He also advised that the blower wheel design was also changed. The fins were now at less of a curve & there are fewer fins. The old style allowed lint to collect on the fins - this is exactly what happened in our case. I was pleased that the parts were covered under the 2 year parts warranty, but NOT happy that I had to pay for the service call to replace parts Electrolux knew were a problem. I'm in general happy with the function of the dryer. I'm writing these comments as I'm not happy with the response by Electrolux to this issue. There final comment to my concerns was that if I'd read my use & care guide carefully, I would have read that every 18 months I should have the dryer serviced by a qualified tech. So, what Electrolux is saying is that if you buy this dryer, plan to spend some money every 18 months to offset their design flaws........doesn't make for a happy customer.

Great machines!

I replaced my 35 year old washer/dryer set and was skeptical about all the functions this new set offered. What a difference they make in doing laundry! ItÕs actually fun to choose which function I want and see it perform exactly as advertised. I especially like the Òperfect steamÓ & Òinstant refreshÓ settings.

We bought matching dryer and washer 3 years ago. Currently waiting on parts. Initial quote to repair my $900 new dryer was $750! NOT HAPPY.
