Comments about Electrolux 4.0 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer - White:
I've had my washer for less than two years and the bearing in the drum have already went bad. We spent more money on this washer than any other washer before. I'm going back to a top load washer as I've gone through 3 front load washers in 6 years. I plan to go with a name brand I can trust
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Input from a former Appliance Dept Manager/Trainer
By Mr CleanJeans
from Midwest Mn U.S.
We really like the performance of our new Electrolux. It cleans the clothes very well and very efficiently (and so quietly). Btw, this replaces a 7 year old top-load Maytag whose timer croaked. It was not worth the cost to repair it.. A side note: In a previous career I managed the appliance dept for a major retailer so I cant help but research anything appliance - motor types, controls, efficiency, settings & warranty, etc, before buying. My fiance just shakes her head, but she knows she is getting the right one. Things to look for: this washer spins most of the water out of the clothes which cuts the drying time nearly in half, saving a lot of money. The dryer in your home is one of the most expensive appliances to run, which makes maximizing the spinning of water out of your clothes crucial. This washer does a great job of that., and it costs only $14/yr to run. If you use a lint filter on your water discharge hose you will be pleasantly surprised by how much less lint there is in the filter when you use this front-load washer. This does not mean that your clothes arent getting cleaned as well or better than with your top-load washer. This means that your clothes arent getting beat up by an agitator smashing your clothes around like in a top load. You will also notice how much better your clothes retain their shape and fabric. This machine is much gentler on your garments. Other things we really like: the quick wash cycle - just 18 minutes. I use it for a quick wash of my workout clothes which I always had to hand-wash previously. They come out perfectly clean. There is a hand-wash setting on this Electrolux too. And a deep sanitize setting and a whites setting and many more. Whats really nice is regardless of whichever setting you choose this washer automatically selects the proper wash and rinse water temperatures as well as wash and spin speeds. You can also select manually. About the motor: it is a direct-drive motor. This means there are no belts to wear out.. Love that! And, the motor carries a 10 year warranty. Overall, after 3 months of ownership, we are very pleased. I did have one initial concern however. I noticed that the shroud around the door opening was wet at the bottom and there would be a tiny collection of water in the bottom of the shroud (seal). I called Electrolux to ask about this. What i got was impeccable service. They had someone out in 3 days and seemed intent upon making us very satisfied customers. When I called I was just going to ask a question, but they sent a service tech out to make sure everything was ok. They never once questioned a thing or made me feel like like I did something wrong. This type of service is a rarity these days. My hats off to Electrolux' service.

Love it and hate it too!
from Brookfield, WI, United States
I have had the washer for just over 2 years and had to have it repaired 2 times the first year with the entire drum assembly as they sited a manuf defect. Now the belt keeps coming off. I love the machine due to it being extremely quiet and cleans fairly well but not dependable. The matching dryer has a few areas where clothes get snared (lint trap and two strips added on the inside back of the dryer drum-dumb design)
Like the set. Pods do not ...
from Gering, NE, United States
Like the set. Pods do not seem to work well they get trapped in the seal of washer. Platform drawers are great for the storage and raising appliances for ease of loading and unloading.
I bought this washer in February and I am already having trouble getting the door to push open.
Wonderfully easy - and I'm all about ease!
from Burien, WA, United States
Very happy with our purchase. Even the chime to tell me its done with the cleaning cycle - it's very polite, for lack of a better description.
Great looking machine! Not so great performance
from Erin, Wisconsin
We are on our second one of these washers because the first one had to be repaired so many times. The new one, which we have had for less than two months, is doing some of the same things as the old one. Extremely noisy, doesn't add any water for some loads, or doesn't spin at all for others. Do not buy this machine. We can't wait to get rid of ours.
Absolutely love them!
from Belen, NM, United States
My husband bought this for our family of 5. I love them! I really appreciate the 18 minute washing cycle and use it quite often for our clothes. Really like the size because I can get a big load done, or just wash my delicates too. I'm a working mom of three so I think the refresh option is a bonus, in case I have to leave a load drying. When we come back home I just refresh the load and it's done!

We purchased this machine in May of 2014 and it has broken down on us twice. 4 months ago the machine needed the bearing and drum replaced. Now, just 4 months later it looks like we have the same issue again!
Love how quickly it washed each load.
from New Haven, KY, United States
Bought this washer about a month ago after mine broke beyond repair. So far, I like it a lot. Works quickly and gets even my husbands concrete construction clothes clean. Is quiet enough to leave the laundry room door open.
