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.

Spot Clean and Easy to Use

Goyo63 11/5/2017

I bought this dishwasher about 4months ago after not ding a dishwasher in years. I was never a fan of the water use and not always clean dishes coming out in the past. However, my new Electrolux is a godsend! My wife loves it and uses it always now.

PUMP NEEDS 2ND REPLACEMENT

NANA S 1/22/2016

Worst dishwasher ever!!! I had the pump (Error 01) replaced about 11 months after I purchased it and now, 5 years later, it needs another pump AND a drying element.. close to $400 for this repair !! I really thought the quality was above and beyond other brands. I also considered the oven and fridge andI'm so glad I didn't buy. Makes me wonder about the quality of all the other Electrolux appliances. I need a new dishwasher now because the repair is too expensive to fix.

Great features not a great product

allygirl 12/17/2015

I bought this dishwasher several years ago. Never cleans well! It has been serviced multiple times with very little improvement. Top rack dishes are never clean. I always have to rinser rewash. There seems to be residue leftover after running. I also have to use extra hot water and high pressure. I ends up running for 90 minutes. I wish I had returned it!

it didn't work well

Lauravit0922 5/27/2015

I bought this product about 18 months ago and the machine never realy worked well but I just hung onto it thinking that I bought the wrong one. I was only using one or two of the cycles that worked. the machine got progessively worse until it stopped working. I vowed I would not ever buy an electrolux again. My husband thought he might be able to fix it so I ordered a manual from your company. He found out that the motor was shot and maybe he could order a new one. i called your office and told them that but no one every told me or him that it was still under warranty. My husband was on the phone to order the part when at last someone on your end said "wait a minute, this is still under warranty." eventually we got it repaired for free which was great...but the original machine was a bust until we had it repaired.

Looks cool!

Normason 5/27/2015

Great looking dishwasher. I have to run the extra hot cycle with each cleaning and there is always grit left on the door so I imagine it is also on my dishes. The baby bottles that I sterilize on the top rack also have debris that I have to manually remove each morning. Other than that- no issues!

Waste of Money

Steve E 2/9/2015

We purchased this expensive ™€œtop of the line™€ dishwasher only a five years ago, and we are finally done with it. There have been at least 5 repairs in the last 2 years and our frustration has reached a tipping point. The racks are flimsy, they fold down with every plate you put in and the top rack barely holds glasses. Dishes have never come out clean (even after rinsing in the sink). Save your money, save your stress ™€“ this dishwasher was poorly made and grossly overpriced.

It's quiet because it's doing nothing

bill 1/14/2015

My expensive dishwasher is doing what it always done.  It is a pretty drying rack.  But at least  3 weeks ago it used to rinse too.  I had one repair done 2 years ago to replace a pump.  Now the drain light came on.  My repairman thinks it needs a new board.  So is it worth repairing?

wildcatthief 10/23/2014

We've had this for about five years and have given up on trying to get the settings where we want them. Now the heating element has gone out and we're trying to get it fixed, but that's taking six weeks and we don't know if its going to get fixed and if it will work after we do?!?! We are washing our dishes by hand at this time!!! Tim Watson

The Blue Light

wadeja 10/6/2014

I haven't had this unit very long yet but among the many nice features is the blue floor light indicator for when the cycle is complete. I wasn't aware this existed when I purchased the unit and there it was... it is so cool! Everybody loves it. The unit is very quiet and does a great job with the dishes even with our hard well water.

WORST Dishwasher on the Market

Kristen 8/31/2014

This is absolutely the WORST appliance I have ever owned.  I should have listened to the awful reviews before I purchased it.  I have had the repairman to my house 12 times for this dishwasher in the past year.  I now have him on my speed dial. Did I mention that my dishwasher is only 2 years old?  What a complete waste of money and time.  RUN, do not walk, away from this appliance.

Disappointed

MalibuGirl 8/31/2014

I was very excited to get my new dishwasher, however, after only four years, we have had the repairman out four times to work on it. Not to mention the motor my husband and I had replace ourselves. Also, I am extremely disappointed in the way it cleans. Unless the dishes are almost pre-washed before hand, they have to be rewashed, sometimes twice and then lastly by hand. Not what I have time for. I will not buy another Electralux appliance as we have issues with the stove also. They look nice, but they do their respective jobs poorly.

I had high expectations for this dish based on the Electrolux brand name. The dishwasher has been in my home for approximately six months and already I've had someone come out to service it. The quality of cleaning is poor.

Nice dishwasher - not long lasting

KM 5/28/2014

I love this dishwasher. It's quiet and fits a lot of dishes. The problem is that since I bought it 5 years ago, it has been repaired 3 times and at this point doesn't wash anything well at all. Again I really liked so much about this dishwasher that I'd love to get the same one again but can't afford to keep repairing. Although the first 2 times were covered by the warranty, my last repair was not and I will not pay to service it again.

Don't buy one

Ted 5/25/2014

I have owed my Electrolux dishwasher for 5 years. I think I have had it serviced almost every year I've owned it. I bought it because it was supposed to be one of the best, boy has that proved to be wrong.i would not recommend any Electrolux appliances. I also have the microwave and double oven. I have had the microwave serviced three times and I'm still having problems with it.

Disappointing

tracy b 5/23/2014

Unfortunately, this dishwasher has not held up to the expectations I had for this brand. Dishes do not come as clean as I would like, food is often still on the plates after it is run, and silverware seldom is clean. I have 3 other Electrolux appliances that all work very well - however, the dishwasher is not one of the best I have had.

Beautiful dishwasher

Tom 2/25/2014

If it was a car I would compare this dishwasher to Alfa Romeo, loved for it's beauty while working, hated for unreliability while broken. It is beautiful with a blue light at the end of wash and nice colorful display. My wife fell in love with it and I had to buy it  disregarding it is not worth its high price.It does not wash dishes any better than old dishwasher it replaced, which was five times less. Old dishwasher was 14 years old and running reliably. We replaced it for not great looks. This Electrolux had some issues with display after less than 3 years of light use and died at young age of 3 years and 8 months. I did not get what I paid for.

endless problems

ehester 2/18/2014

I purchased this dishwasher 2 years ago and it has been endless problems. At least once a month, the electrical board reads error (all the lights blink) and it will not operate. Some times, I can unplug the dishwasher and, if I leave it unplugged for a long time, it will reset. Other times, it will not reset and I have to call for service (which always takes days before they can come and is EXPENSIVE). I have had it now and will replace this machine rather than keep servicing it. I am so angry--this was supposed to be a top quality machine and very quiet. Well it is quiet--actually silent most of the time because it does not work! DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE.

Latch 2/4/2014

This dishwasher looks good. Large capacity and all the bells and whistles, but it breaks....a lot.  Many error codes that you can't fix yourself and expensive repairs. We will have to replace soon even though it was fixed under warranty....it keeps displaying error codes.  Not happy .

I gave it a try, unfortunately

Mike 1/2/2014

All I can say is that besides the beautiful styling, excellent noise control and nice features, this unit really didn't do a very good job at cleaning my dishes over the past 5 years... and now the pump has gone. Decided not to repair or replace it with the same model because I expect longer than 5 years for this kind of money. I also had issues with their very expensive refrigerator as well as their double oven, so I don't think I am being overly wary when I say I'm buying a Bosch today despite the fact that it won't match as nicely with the remainder of my appliances. And I will follow suit with each of these appliances when they kick the bucket, too.

You must pre- rinse!

Yellowdogs 12/28/2013

I'm on my 3rd of this model. The first two were lemons and one was replaced after 8 weeks and the second replaced after 4 months. The third one has been working for 4 1/2 years now. I just purchased an extended warranty and am glad that I did.  The open shut switch had to be replaced because the seal doesn't work well and allows food residue to get into door and clog the switch. The open shut switch got stuck and the machine would not run. It' was replaced under the extended warranty and works again. The big issue with this machine is that it just doesn't clean very well. You have to wash all food off of dishes before loading and scrub anything that is dried at all off before putting it into the machine. You need to prewash every item. The top rack has to be loaded with spaces in between the items or it doesn't get clean and I have no idea how it happens but you have to check inside the glasses after each load because many times they have crusty food residue in the bottom after machine is done. They are cleaner when they go in than when they come out. I wouldn't buy this one machine again.
