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.

Dianetc 4/8/2019

We moved and needed all new appliances and the salesperson recommended Electrolux. This dryer has so many settings and you can control the dryness much better. I typically air dry some garments but this allows me to have the dryer take some of the wetness out alert me so I can remove them for final air drying and continue to dry the remaining items. Really am glad I made the switch. These are great machines

Worked very well for 2 months then motor died

longwaytothelaundromat 4/7/2019

We recently purchased our first high-efficiency front loader set. We were excited and have a new baby in cloth diapers. Everything worked great for the first 2 months... One day the dryer stopped working and would only hum. Service guys came out and said the motor was fried and the belt broke. He said he wasnt sure of the cause of failure and there were no socks or anything stuck in the works. Now Im excited every time the dryer finishes a load and hasnt died. Guess well be holding our breath for the next failure and hoping it happens before the warranty expires.

Behemoth and packed with features

Submarine Builder 3/29/2019

Ive had this dryer for just over a month and I dont know how I have managed to get along without it. First off as my Review Title states this machine is behemoth with its 8 cu. ft. capacity. The well-lit LED drum is sleek and coated with a very durable enamel that is almost like a porcelain finish. Although I did not get the steam option my unit contained the brass discharge fitting to deliver it. I might add that I did not purchase the very reasonably priced steam option because I did not want to run an extra water line and connect it to my electric dryer. I thought of steam irons and how inherently they become riddled with limescale and other mineral deposits necessitating cleaning the vents and sole plate with a vinegar or CLR solution. I did not want this added maintenance nuisance. Like most electric appliances today the cord a/k/a pigtail must be purchased separately which is not a problem. The real challenge was finding the appropriately-sized non-standard large cord restrainer where the clamp has to accommodate a flat cord or pigtail to restrain it. I dont know if all modern dryers - even those manufactured by other companies - have this hinged sandwich double action style lint trap or not but it is superior This device traps lint like I have never seen before and is extremely efficient. The only drawback to this device is its size. It is so big that it is almost impossible not to bang the surfaces of the dryer opening both inside and out when removing and subsequently reinstalling it back into the dryer after cleaning. Strange that the specifications state Extra Large Lint Filter: NO. With 8 cycles 5 temperature settings wrinkle care sanitizing cycle and sensor dry my personal favorite it can handle anything with great ease. My dryer sits atop its compatible washer FLS527UI and is attached via the optional stacking kit 7X. Although the manufacturer states that an optional drying rack is available there are none to be found. According to the installation instructions the optimal dryer vent hose should either travel downward or left/right mine must travel in a vertical direction due to the logistics of my condominium home. Nowhere does it state that an extension is required to clear the protruding back of the unit when connections are made such that the dryer discharge is vertical. This caused problems for me at the time of delivery/installation because they did not have one on the delivery truck. All things considered I would highly recommend this machine. The only reason I gave it three and not four stars was because of those shortcomings cord restrainer lint filter size and dryer discharge arrangement as I discussed as above.

Doesnt totally dry clothes.

1DAC 2/28/2019

My dryer doesnt totally dry my clothes. My clothes end up on the lint screen all wadded up and wrinkled. I have to keep pushing them back into the dryer and passed the lint screen and most of the time this doesnt even get them dry. Repairman came out and said it was a design flaw in the door. I paid to much for this dryer not to get my clothes dry and come out wrinkled
