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.

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.

I bought my Electrolux washing machine several weeks ago and am so happy I did. I havent even begun to use all its features but what I have seen is wow For starters there are the lights... BEAM ME UP SCOTTY Feels like I have my own slightly boxy spaceship. Not to worry I will not get in. I titled this review Better Than a Sports Car because this washer is as high tech as the snazziest new car but requires no gas and its energy efficiency is crazy good

C and J 9/11/2018

We just purchased an Electrolux washer and dryer and absolutely love it. We had our Bosch front-load for several years and when the washer needed replaced we decided to go with both a new washer and dryer. We love the features of the Electrolux and are very happy with our decision. We look forward to getting many years of service out of these quality appliances. Thank you

Gidgetpug 9/9/2018

The washer does an excellent job on cleaning the clothes. Steam and stain features add time to wash but throughly remove stains. PODS dispenser is nice. I love the fact that doing wash doesnt cost me a fortune but Pennys to get clean clothes. Simple and easy to use. I like that there is a light in the drum. Large capacity. Quiet til load is done then chimes several times to get you know load is done.

seems to work great

bartmart 8/31/2018

Have had this for a few weeks. Seems to work great. After the spin cycle the clothes are really stuck against the barrel and the washer is so deep that it is a struggle to get all the clothes out. Plus the washer is on the bottom of the stack washer/dryer so I have to bend WAY DOWN. I tried the option that tosses the clothes after the wash cycle but the washer showed a error code and stopped. Not sure if I did something wrong.

Vivian 8/27/2018

This is a new washing machine replacing an old Whirlpool front loader. This Electrolux is extremely loud when I first start it and all during actual wash cycle. The repairman said it was the recirculated and replaced it when it was a week old. It is still incredibly loud with a humming type noise. Also I do not like the option select buttons or the end of cycle signal. I am most unhappy with this purchase

roseanne914 8/25/2018

Really happy with my Electrolux front load washer. Its attractive quiet and does a great job cleaning all weights of clothing towels etc. Two suggestions: One issue is that if I stand in front of my washer and lean forward to fold clothes my body will activate the front on/off button. Sometimes I turn off the machine when I did not mean to. Secondly I wish that there was an access point for the drain so that I could clean residual threads etc. I worry about the drain hole clogging. Thank you for the opportunity to offer my input.

We bought the washer and dryer after our old one died. This new set takes up the same amount of space yet washes more. It has so many more features and I especially appreciate the steam cycles in both the washer and dryer. In the dryer it eliminates most wrinkles and in the washer it is great for napkins towels and sheets to deep clean.

Clean Design Quiet Operation

Kevin124373ofnuvmdifnuvnd 8/20/2018

We bought the Electrolux front load washer and matching dryer to replace a Bosch set whose controller board failed. I like the washing and drying options on both machines and the simple controls. On the washer it seems like the front gasket that normally gets very moldy is less likely to do so as the neoprene fold is shallower than the one of the Bosch. Theres also small drain holes in the base of the gasket to drain excess water and further limit mold growth. Time will tell but the design seems more thought out.

Julie h 8/20/2018

Bought this w/o much research after my 14-yr old Maytag washer and dryer failed within a few days of each other. With a rebate and energy rebate it worked out to about $800. I was very surprised by how quiet it is. Love the size and how much it fits. The 18 minute was is a key feature when you have 3 kiddos. Havent tried the steam functions yet but happy to know they are there. Bought the pedestal this time too and appreciate the height addition. Aesthetically looks beautiful and Im very pleased with the choice.
