Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Wonderful dryer

Happy Nana 2/17/2018

Ive had my Electrolux front loading dryer for about one month. The day it was delivered I used it to dry a load of towels. The machine is quiet and dried the towels efficiently and timely. Very easy to operate and change the settings from auto dry to timed dry and anything in between based on the items in your wash load. I would recommend this purchase and the pedestal for storage.

Nice Products

Lakeshore Girl 2/14/2018

We bought the washer/dryer pair in December 2017. It looks nice and does their job. Had service out to check on two things that concerned us. 1. Dryer gets EXtremly Hot in the beginning. Just on the side by the heater/motor. It eventually cools down. It also sounds loud every time I use it. It clunks because it is full of wet clothes. That too will eventually quite down as the clothes dry. Service Tech called Electrolux and they said both concerns are normal. So okay....

gleckner 2/4/2018

Dryer works well and Im happy with the stainless interior. My only beef is the way the dryer handles lint. Because of the way the door sits lint collects on the rubber seal and on the lip and has to be cleaned off. My other dryer did not have this issue.

Best dryer I have ever owned.

Joy15 2/4/2018

Had to replace another brand washer after only 6 years and although dryer was still working decide to buy matching Electrolux dryer to go with new Electrolux front load dryer.. Compared to all other brands I have had over years this tops them all for efficiency and features. Didnt think I would use steam feature until I tried it to freshen up blankets quilts pillows and other items that didnt require washing. LOVE THIS FEATURE

Clothes / rags get stuck on the vent

WarrenCT 2/3/2018

There is a vent in the front of the dryer near the door that you clean every time you run a cycle. We have found that often times clothes and or rags get stuck on the vent hence covering it. Usually happens with smaller loads where there isnt enough stuff in the dryer to bump the stuck stuff off the vent.

My favorite dryer ever

MonicaAnn 12/1/2017

This dryer is huge I can fit so much stuff in it which is wonderful because i tend to do large loads of laundry. I couldnt always fit my entire load in my old dryer and it would frequently come out still damp. I havent had that problem with this dryer. I also really love how quite my dryer is. My laundry closet doesnt have any doors on it and the noise of the dryer isnt loud enough to bother me at all.

Dryer Makes Too Much Noise

Whaler Nate 10/26/2017

The dryer made a loud repeating banging noise when it was first turned on. My appliance dealer tried to fix it by replacing all the drum rollers. This repair took 1 month from the purchase date. Now it is making a different noise. Dryer was too expensive to have these issues right out of the box. Nice design and features though.

Shocked at how amazing this machine is...

HeathH 10/25/2017

Ive had several models of washers and dryers over the years from both foreign and domestic manufacturers. I have never had an appliance work as well as my Electrolux 517 series dryer and 617 series washer. This review is for the dryer but both machines have been absolutely outstanding. The dryer seems to actually have the cognitive ability to gently and efficiently dry my clothes I cant quite describe it but this machine dries my clothes more accurately than any dryer Ive used in the past. Items that normally come out slightly damp are perfectly dry arent over heated and smell amazing. Because of this washer/dryer combo I will only ever purchase Electrolux appliances in the future and I truly mean that. Thank you for a wonderful product I would HIGHLY recommend Electrolux.
