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.

Doesnt totally dry clothes.

1DAC 2/28/2019

My dryer doesnt totally dry my clothes. My clothes end up on the lint screen all wadded up and wrinkled. I have to keep pushing them back into the dryer and passed the lint screen and most of the time this doesnt even get them dry. Repairman came out and said it was a design flaw in the door. I paid to much for this dryer not to get my clothes dry and come out wrinkled

Robin L 2/21/2019

Been using the 527 models for a month now and absolutely love them and are amazed at the results of my clean clothes I am in awe at how the clean cycle works on the washer as the drum rotates in both directions. The 18 min clean/dry cycles are great. The auto sensor on the dryer works great.

Paul A 2/13/2019

I have only good things to say about my new dryer. It is very easy to use. I dont like too many buttons or options I tend to stay pretty basic and this machine allows the flexibility to do either. It senses based on the load size and type how long to dry and I love that feature. Its very roomy and I love the lint filter its very substantial. I would recommend getting the pedestal for the bottom. I didnt and I think I will go back and get it. It would make the front loading at a better height. Definitely would recommend this dryer.

Worst dryer I have ever owned

HollyBl 2/10/2019

I need to preface this review by saying that I needed a washer that had the door hinge on the right. Electrolux was the ONLY brand to offer that. Secondly I had chosen the 517 model. But when I ordered it was no longer available. This 527 model is what the appliance store substituted for me. There is about a 3 inch gap between the drum and the door where the lint trap is located. This dryer is very effective at getting small clothing items stuck in that gap. If enough items get stuck the dryer shuts off because it thinks the lint trap needs to be cleaned. I go to the laundry room thinking the load should be dry but find them wet.. Second complaint is that I need to dry each bed sheet in a separate load. If I dont the dryer will somehow tumble in a way that will wrap the fitted sheet completely around the flat sheet and pillowcases creating a large ball of fabric that will not dry. How is that saving energy? I will be installing a clothesline to solve this problem. If you make it this far in reading this review I will say that I do like all the different cycles this dryer has. I have not tried the steam cycle.

Great family dryer

cb22 1/16/2019

Bought this to replace our 15 year old prior Electrolux dryer as part of a pair that dryer was great and is still going strong in a new home. Very large quiet and efficient. The variety of options is great at this price - the steam and refresh options are particularly nice and it also handles the large loads from our teenagers great. Only thing I wish it had is an option to do a timed dry for less time the lowest setting is 30 minutes - sometimes I need just a 10 minute touch-up without steam and thats not available you just have to watch the clock.

SharonK 1/14/2019

When our washer died my husband and I went to a reputable appliance store for a replacement. The array of front and top loaders was daunting. The salesperson however had been a repairman for the company and knew his products. After going over the pros and cons of the different washing machines I asked him what machine would he want his mother to buy and why. It was the Electrolux He raved about it and I can see why. Our clothing comes out cleaner and I love the diverse features for our different washing needs. It has surpassed my expectations
