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.

Since purchasing my Electrolux washer and dryer, my life has gotten so much easier. I actually love doing laundry now! I love how fast and efficient washing and drying clothes can be. I'd highly recommend making the investment. Best purchase I've made in years!!!

Just can't stop admiring this dryer!

JP in Homer 9/16/2016

I saw the nice press to open clear door in a showroom long before I was shopping for our remodel home appliances. After yanking on different rigid doors on different washers and dryers where we rented during the remodeling, this feature started to have more appeal. Then I researched more about the Electrolux flagship machines with steam and became more interested. Likely, Electrolux also manufactured the Frigidaire Affinity machines we enjoy at our other apartment. I installed this dryer and the matching washer in our upstairs walk in closet, with both units on the matching optional pedestals. This is much more ergonomic than stacked like our apartment. If you have the floor space, do the pedestals! They have nice matching push to open drawers that can hold all your detergents and bleaches nicely, and keep these off of floors and shelves, for a net space and corrosion savings. These are really beautiful machines to look at and use. The interface is elegant, with easy options to choose from, and pleasant chimes rather than harsh buzzers for sounds, unlike other annoying machines. It is almost fun to do the laundry now! The interiors have the option to turn on lights, and it is almost embarrassing how long we sat and stared at laundry spinning around in the washer and dryer the first time we ran loads through these! I regret I have not yet run the available steam cycle on this dryer to comment on. The dryer is efficient and runs comparatively quietly. I have not operated a more elegant and ergonomic dryer than this, and am very pleased that we went with the high end product. It will be difficult to ever go back to the rattle and clank and ugly of all the other machines I've ever seen or used.

Finally a Dryer with OPTIONS!

paraclass 9/15/2016

I love the fact that this dryer gives me more than the standard options. I can change my mind on the settings during any cycle and reduce the drying time, prevent wrinkles...It is energy efficient and easy to use...everything to love about it!

jdgretz 7/28/2015

The dryer was purchased along with the matching washer and I can't think of how I could be happier. The combination looks great, works better than expected and is very quiet.As with the washer, I didn't think all the settings would be of that much use, but I find that I am using more of them than I had expected. The drying time shown on the display is accurate and much quicker than I had experienced with my old machine.It is quiet - very quiet, even with full or heavy loads.I'm very impressed with the quality so far and expect to have a long relationship with this setup.Highly recommended

Nice Dryer

ScooterG65 5/18/2015

Purchased about a month and a half ago. It has some very nice features and possibly too many options. Our biggest complaint is that some loads still are damp when the dryer cycle finishes. It is more quiet than the dryer it repalced.

GAS DRYER PRODUCT

DENNIS 3/12/2015

THIS IS THE SECOND WAVE TOUCH WE HAVE OWNED. THE FIRST ONE WORE OUT AND WOULD HAVE COST MORE TO REPAIR THAN PURCHASE. WE ARE VERY HAPPY WITH OUR NEW DRYER. IT DOES EVERYTHING IT ADVERTISED TO DO. WE REALLY LIKE THE FACT THAT IF YOU SET THE TIME, THE CLOTHES ARE DRY AT THAT TIME WITH NO CLOTH BURNS.

Cherbear 7/28/2014

This Wave touch Dryer has all the features to make drying clothes a breeze....LOVE LOVE LOVE the "add steam" results - no need to plug in  the old iron anymore !  Clothes dry evenly.The design and height is very comfortable to use, and easy on my  spine. Nice added touch with Cycle bells to indicate selection. And I though Electrolux only made vacuums!!

This dryer has more cycles than you are ever likely to use. That does not mean that the cycles are superfluous --- your favorite cycle is someone else's unnecessary addition. It is nice to have such flexibility and control.

Love my Perfect Steam Dryer and Washer !!Second pair since the first was sold with last residence.Present dryer sensor seems a bit off ..... sometimes damp clothes at end of cycle.The lint trap has a felt perimeter edge which is difficult to clean completely after each cycle.Still love my Electrolux laundry assistants ;)
