Love it Bought 2

Wendy from Zoom 5/19/2018

I actually have two laundry set ups and 6 kids in my house. Last summer I had to replace the downstairs set and I went with the Electrolux. I liked it enough that when the bearings went out on my upstairs stacked set I got the exact same set again. They are big dependable get things really clean and I am in love with the instant refresh feature on the dryer. Seriously I am never ironing again

Better than my 4 year old Maytag

CZICZI 5/10/2018

My Maytag dryer died after 4 years and it was the top of the line. I replaced it with this Electrolux 617 after much research. Great dryer huge drum though very deep easy controls and it dries things quickly especially for the teens in my house who forget to get their uniform ready the night before.

Dr Lugol 5/8/2018

This was the dryer we chose with the matching Electrolux washer. It has performed flawlessly. Even tried the misting feature. Completely satisfied and this is our second pair of this brand. Moved from WA state to Nevada after three years with the first pair and immediately bought the second pair for our new home. No issues. Just dry clothes.

Great washer and great dryer

Pat_ 5/5/2018

The only thing that you could correct is to put a flat plug for the washer. That extra amount that sticks out for that plug could be saved when space is tight. You have that flat against the wall plug for the dryer why not the washer? I reviewed this washer and dryer previously but keep getting the emails so thought that I would do it again. And I hope to hear from you this time regarding my suggestion.

Solid Washer

Allison27 5/4/2018

Pleased with our purchase of this for a 2nd floor. Doesnt shake the whole house although we can hear it moving water in/out. My only complaint is that the rubber lining around the door does seem to get settling water therefore has discolored a bit already. There is also a small lip around that rubber ring where the occasional small item will get stuck during the spin cycle underwear - this has happened only about a dozen times but it still does happen.

What a Change 35 Years Makes

dkidzni3 5/3/2018

I did a great deal of research to find a new dryer. Hadnt bought one in 35 years. Was reluctant to change. I must say I AM SO GLAD I DID. It is dramatic - gets out wrinkles can set start time can introduce steam gets out static. It is quiet and dries fairly quickly. I am so delighted with it. It was a gift from my children and I really didnt want it - but so glad they persisted. What a treat.

So Many Features

bettydog31 5/1/2018

I recently moved in my house and I swear the washer/dryer that came with the house were the same ones we used when I was a kid I replaced both the washer and dryer this month with the Electrolux pair. This dryer is amazing It has so many features I havent even been able to try them all The dryer dries my clothes beautifully and I dont feel like it shrinks my clothes at all. Being that Ive only had the dryer for about a month I havent had time to read the manual yet to read when and how to use the other features. But I am certainly interested in trying the perfect steam. I have tried the refresh button after leaving my clothes in the dryer over night and it worked GREAT Ive also used the timed dry auto dry at both the normal and high heat settings. Awesome I would definitely recommend this dryer to others.

Pretty happy overall

tchicky 4/29/2018

I bought this dryer two months ago and here are the pros and cons. I like the large drum. Recently I had to wash my king size down comforter and the large drum not only accommodated the comforter but did a fantastic job of drying it.. I also like the various settings such as a setting for towels and instant refresh. However finding the right setting for your load can be tricky. Several times when I used the normal setting for a mixed load as recommended not all of the items were completely dry. My biggest complaint is the selection panel. The way the panel is lit makes it difficult to read. My dryer is in the garage and even with the light on it can be hard to see the different selections. Overall though I am happy with this dryer.

Overall very good dryer

CLB1 4/17/2018

We bought the Electrolux washer and dryer to replace an older top loading washer and regular dryer that came with our house. Due to the configuration of our laundry room we needed the doors to open opposite of what is standard and Electrolux was one of very few that could do that. The Electrolux 617 dryer is easy to use yet has a variety of cycles and options. I recommend reading the manual to understand things like the difference between wrinkle release and extended tumble so you can use options to your advantage and also to know that fabric softener sheets used during steam cycles could stain your clothes. I do wish there were shorter time options on the Time Dry Cycle 30 minutes is the shortest. I usually choose auto dry but if the load isnt quite dry at the end of the cycle and I choose auto dry again it seems to go much longer than needed so a 10 minute time dry would be nice. Fortunately this doesnt happen often. I love that the window of the doors are clear rather than heavily tinted like so many now. Overall its a great dryer.

Big Matt 4/13/2018

My mother bought an Electrolux through door-to-door sales in 1981 and still uses it today 2018. I could not wait to purchase the washer and dryer once out previous pair were no longer usable. We have been very impressed with the quality features efficiency and outcomes of our wash. Many of our dear friends in Europe have used your washers and dryer for years and have raved about the reliability and performance plus they are very attractive devices. We should have upgraded sooner and recommend them to all of our friends. Thank you for the continuation of you committment to quality and fine craftsmanship.

Nikolai 3/28/2018

Havent got a chance to use all the bells and whistles on this thing yet but its obvious that as the title says this thing is large and gets the drying done well. It is solid and well-made. We ended up stacking them with the kit. Nice that the bottom in the back is notched-out/offset so you are not stuck venting solely out the back if you dont want to - with a semi-rigid vent you can pipe it out the side.
