Feature and Product Videos

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

The manufacturer's parts and labor warranty is typically for only 1 year but for as little as $110 for an appliance with a purchase price of under $500, you can have peace of mind for a total of five years. Kitchen package appliance coverage plans are available if you wish to protect multiple appliances at the time of purchase.

Did you know that the average cost for a service company to come to your home and diagnose an out-of-warranty appliance problem is $100.00. Once the problem is determined, there is the additional expense for parts and labor to resolve it. Appliance repairs can range between $150 and $500.

If you are concerned about spending money on a service contract you will never need, our New Leaf ServicePro extended service plans will refund 50% of the service contract purchase price to you if no covered appliances have service calls during the extended warranty coverage period. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

broken on 1st time use

why ask 4/12/2018

broken on 1st time use. Door locked. Customer service requires serial number before warranty service. However, the serial number is inside the door. With the locked door can't be retrieved. Bad quality and bad design.

Broken machine, can't get parts

Beth57s 1/24/2017

I bought this machine 18 months ago, and already the motor, the heater and the hi limit (thermostat?) are broken. This is a pretty expensive machine, and i would not expect that it would have such a complete level of mechanical failure after only 18 months. That being said, I understand things break, but if I can't get parts and repairs completed in a timely fashion, then this appliance is completely worthless to me.

I bought this item a month ago, and it does not dry well. I run a cycle and it finishes and the items are still damp. I run the cycle again, and it stops before the items are dry. Wish it dried better, since there are so many nice options to the dryer

This is the first new Washer/Dryer set I've purchased in 10 years and I couldn't be happier. The controls are simple to use. Both the washer and dryer are so quiet - you almost don't know they are running. The extended tumble cycle is great and really minimizes the need for ironing.

This dryer lives up to its positive reviews and more! The extra big drum holds king size blankets and huge loads of towels or clothes, and gets them dry. I love the extended tumble feature as well as the variety of cycles. Plus it is really easy to use. Best dryer I have owned.

I care for my 92 year old parent and must do quite a bit of laundry, sometimes on a daily basis. The 8.0 cubic feet dryer more than meets my needs and the clothing is not "man-handled" in the process.

Greatest buy

Jerry Strawberry 7/25/2015

We bought this machine when we lived in Europe and were amazed. Found it this year here in California (finaly available in the USA) and purchased it again. We love the quiet sound the steam technology that prevents wrinkles and the 30cc small amount of detergent that it takes to wash our clothes and how great it smells when it is done!

Enormous Capacity!

Woody 3/18/2015

We love the capacity of our Electrolux, front load, gas dryer. Especially since we have four little dogs and we like to wash and dry their beds frequently. We can dry all four beds at the same time. We appreciate the different cycles that apply to different types of materials. We also like the Steam feature for taking our wrinkles and sanitizing. All in all a great machine

Dryer leaked water

GBob 11/24/2014

After having my new washer and dryer stacked and install in my newly renovated laundry the machines seemed to be working well. They were quiet and seemed to be working efficiently, both washing and drying. Then one day i go into the laundry room and find there's water all over the new floor after drying the floor and pulling the machines out of the cabinet enclosure I see water all over the backs of the machines but no indication of where it's coming from. after calling the appliance dealer and arranging for a tech to come out I tried to recreate the leak with no success. the tech came out a couple of days later and found the water supply line inside the dryer was 3" short of the connector it should have been hooked to.So when ever the dryer used water in a cycle it would just spray water out of the back of the machine. since the replacement of the supply line everything seems to be fine now i just have to hope it doesn't rust or corrode.

Disappointed

Electrolux dryer 10/20/2014

I would have difficult time recommending this dryer since I purchased it for $947 and it needed a repair within 17 months of purchase. There is only a 12 month warranty on their products. I will pay much better attention to the manufactures warranty in my future purchases. The extended warranty was $499 at time of the purchase and there was no way I could afford that as well since I also purchased the washer at around $950 as well.. The blower box had a crack and needed to be replaced as well as the motor shaft.  I can't say I would purchase an Electrolux product again. I'm sorry but a product of this price point should last more than 17 months.   Very disappointing.

pop 8/25/2014

We had a dryer that was 13 years old, it finally took a dive, we shopped around and looked for a" DEAL", we looked at a appliance company and after the sales man explained some of the great features the dryer had, we really liked what we saw. We liked he idea that we could wash the comforter and sheets and then dry them altogether, wow with this dryer we can dry everything at once!!We also liked the steam features for my shirts no ironing. And of course the name Electrolux, it means excellent machines that my mom used 40 years ago!!! Great work

Electrolux Gas Dryer

Jenn 7/18/2014

The dryer works very well. It is stackable to sit atop our washer which is a nice space saving feature. The dryer is easy to use with many nice preprogrammed cycles and the ability to set a favorite setting. It runs very quietly and dries our laundry quickly and efficiently.

Cor2525 6/24/2014

My fiancee and I both work alot, so we are only able to do laundry about once every 2 weeks. This dryer fits a lot of clothes in it, so biweekly laundry isn't a hassle! It also has alot of different options for cycles, clothing type, and temperature. The only negative I have come across is that sometimes clothes may need to be dried twice.

Good but sensor status unclear

Peach 6/13/2014

I bought this to replace and match my old dryer that had simple two option dryer setting: permanent press and regular w dampness sensor. This dryer has many many options plus the steam. It is fancy and large capacity which I love. However, the settings are too many and too confusing and I don't even know if it is doing the dampness sensing as all the settings have a set time. With the amount of load I haven't times myself a load cycle to see if the duration of cycle is extended it shortened. I've had a few cycle that ended damper than expected and I was hoping the dryer had "fuzzy intelligence" to adjust to the correct dryness according to the setting but I have been disappointed.
