    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.

    Dries clothes efficiently but has problems

    sean49 5/13/2019

    We purchased this dryer 18 months ago. It's mostly run well up until the last two months. Unfortunately we have had difficulties with the way the blower sends the air through the lint screen and ended up with a suddenly very loud and inefficient dryer due to buildup of lint within the machine (despite the fact that we clean the lint screen religiously). We had to replace the blower outside of the warranty window; an additional cost which makes me hesitant to recommend it.

    RSCOTT33 2/20/2019

    I have had my dryer for less than a year and a half and have had to have it serviced 3 times. It is not quiet like they say it is and had to have the motor replaced after having it only 9 months. To be honest my other brand , less expensive dryer worked better.

    After months of research I could not find one negative thing about the electrolux line of washers and dryers. I know the owner of the appliance store we purchased them from, and when he told me that is what he had in his home I knew it was the way to go.

    1041 2/10/2019

    I bought this machine a month ago and could not be happier. The noise is a minimum when it operates and sometimes I forget that I am doing laundry until the end of cycle signal. It has more than enough room for a king comforter and it gets all my loads cleaned impeccably.

    Nothing But The Best!

    DanMan 1/19/2019

    Our Washer & Dryer went out two days a part. Called the appliance repair service who advised the old ones weren't worth saving. I asked him what he's recommend if he had to purchase new Washer & Dryer for his wife. He didn't hesitate and stated "Electrolux". Done deal.

    Loud from day one

    ctmallam 10/15/2018

    Bought a new high end Electrolux washer and dryer last year and have had 3 service calls from day one. Listen to the loud rollers. The matching washer has an even louder drain pump. Electrolux refuses to replace this faulty product I spent over $1200 on. Customer service reps tell me to contact my retailer. Luckily, I bought the extended warranty and will keep using it to replace the rollers. Looking forward to buying a different brand when it expires. Don't waste your money!

    Stephanieb270 9/25/2018

    My husband and I bought our washer and dryer 3 weeks ago. We love them!!! We bought the pedestals for both machines and couldn™€™t be happier. They add extra storage and we were pleased at how quiet the machines still run. We heard that pedestals add extra noise-not the case!!! Our washer cleans so much better than our old one and we use much less detergent and fabric softener!!!

    Beware Blower Assembly Design Problem

    Doogle 8/2/2018

    Have owned this dryer for just over 2 years. Started making loud noise. Repair tech said the blower assembly has a design flaw (too small) and collects lint throwing it off balance. Electrolux even has a service bulletin about it. Tech said many of them are failing in first 3-4 months of owner ship and was surprised mine had lasted this long. Asked for a parts and/or labor concession from Electrolux since it's a known problem. They said I was "outside of their guidelines" to receive any consideration. So add another 25% on to the purchase price of what you might pay for this dryer because it will cost you at some point.

    Bought these in April love the fact that there is a 4™€ space in the back of the dryer to allow for the vent especially since we have such a small laundry closet! It™€™s what attracted me to the brand. Plus Electrolux is the best so I can™€™t go wrong! Very quiet and I have noticed it actually cleans my Clothes better!

    The Electrolux 517 dryer is perfect for my needs. For starters, the dryer has the stainless steel drum to prevent any scratching. When it comes to the preset cycles, there is more than I can use! You can also change the various options with each cycle. This model also has the moisture sensor so my clothes are never under or over.. they always come out perfectly dry so it protects my clothes!!

    Motor quit after 4 loads of laundry

    Cee958 6/14/2018

    I literally put 4 loads of laundry through the dryer and it quit. The motor went bad already. Then I had to wait for almost 2 weeks for it to even get fixed. I spent a lot of money on this and upset that it broke within the first week of owning it. I purchased these because they were supposed to be the best. I just hope I do not continue to have problems.

    Booga 5/5/2018

    I™€™ve had my set for about two weeks. They may look intimidating but very easy to use. They make about as much noise as any washer dryer. Not overly noisy but not whisper quiet. It™€™s a washer and dryer so they make the normal noise. I never bought a colored appliance and this was the first time. Never know I could love an appliance so much!! I did quite a bit of research and these got high reviews over the 617 models. So far, I™€™m thrilled with these.
