    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.

    Faulty Lint Filter

    Katvan75 8/6/2022

    Lint filter came out while drying clothes. I heard the banging and was surprised to find the lint filter in with my clothes and unfortunately socks were down in the path of the air flow exhaust. I retrieved socks put the lint trap back and chalked it up to me not putting it down. Started dryer, checked back in 5 minutes and all was good. I headed upstairs. My daughter heard the clanking - it did it again!! This time I know the lint filter was all the way down. This time more socks went down and became trapped. Luckily my daughter heard it and we didn™€™t have a fire or something. Now the dryer makes a horrible noise it™€™s late on a Friday and I have tons of laundry to get done. So angry and this obvious design flaw.

    Good, with one major flaw

    ABF1 5/22/2022

    The dryer is fine but here's the one flaw: The lint catcher can get dislodged by clothes. This has happened to me several times over the three years I've had the machine. When the lint catcher is dislodged, clothes get sucked into the exhaust. They are hard to get out! There is an easy fix for Electrolux: add some kind of clip so the lint catcher is locked in and secure.

    This dryer has a wonderful lint trap. It looks so space-age too. Every time I look at my stacked washer and dryer I am so proud to own such a fine dryer and washer. I love the easy display and it's every setting for drying I could want.

    So much room

    Josherin 12/10/2021

    Being a family of 6, laundry is a never ending battle, but with our new washer and dryer we are able to crank through in just a couple days. The 18 minute fast dry is even less and perfect for when your child has forgotten to get their uniform cleaned and has to have it in an hour.

    7 months old and Already a Burned Out Belt

    Chachow 11/3/2021

    I wanted some time to go by before I wrote a review. The dryer started out with five stars and after seven months I™€™d give it a 2. How can a belt burn out after seven months when only two people use the dryer. Disappointed purchase!!

    Jillt27 5/28/2021

    We had this dryer delivered a week ago and it already broke. Similar to other complaints, the lint trap lifts out during the tumble and clothes get sucked into the machine. We now have to wait a full week for an Electrolux repairman to come and fix it after only using it for ONE week! Customer service was also terrible. Waited on hold for 25 minutes to even speak to someone. We paid $1000 dollars for this machine. Unbelievable.

    It will cost you more than you think

    Axotigger 4/29/2021

    We purchased this unit about 8 months ago, when Lowe™€™s first received it. The sales person had no feedback or knowledge of this unit. After researching, I decided this was the unit, as it rated high in pet hair removal, anti-static, the ™€œrefresh™€, and the large capacity. After 8 months, it has destroyed Lululemon leggings, North-face sweatshirts, and school/work uniforms. The lint filter had been found in 2 pc at the back of the dryer. The door pops open at half capacity, or a single pair of shoes. The worst part is the ™€œextended refresh™€ is just a continuous rinse that locks the machine until you stop it at the end of the cycle. Yet advertising as it will dry your clothes so you don™€™t have to keep rewashing.

    Cmoore54 4/3/2021

    I purchased my dryer because I loved all the wonderful features it had to offer. No salesperson needed for this dryer. The dryer sells itself. My clothes come out fluffy and softer than any other dryer I have used in the past. I like the fact I can use the steam to freshen my clothes if I need to remove the wrinkles if I let them sit to long in the dryer. Definitely will stay with this product in the future.

    Average - Not wowed

    Breanna 3/29/2021

    We have had the unit for about 11 months now. We purchased it because of its higher energy start rating and good reviews. I am not sure we achieve the energy star rating though because rarely do clothes come out dry the first time so we have to add another 30 minutes. It doesn't seem to matter what size of load or what heat setting we have it set to. For some reason smaller items such as socks or underwear get stuck up against the door and those items don't dry at all. I've never had this with other machines. The machine is pretty quite and easy to use but overall not wowed by it for the price we paid.

    What dried in about 30 minutes in our previous dryer takes at least double in this one. But it does have a great lint filter. Hopefully better for the clothes.
