Very good Product

By Sylvia703

from Liberty, IN, United States

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

The dryer performs to expectations except for the door which does not want to stay closed.


Not impressed

By LoboKC

from Olathe, KS, United States

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

After only having for six months already had to have it repaired. Screen on control panel went out and had to be replaced.

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

I purchased both the dryer and washer and am extremely pleased! I went above my planned budget on this purchase and I am happy I did. It has plenty of cycles, it does a great job of washing and drying (without shrinking anything!!), it runs quiet which I love. I did not get the pedestal bases due to height logistics but I would recommend that if possible as it would be easier to transfer clothes from the washer to dryer. I am would highly recommend this product and would definitely purchase another Electrolux Appliance.


Great Appliance!

Greatest buy

By Jerry Strawberry

from Rancho Cucamonga, CA

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

We bought this machine when we lived in Europe and were amazed. Found it this year here in California (finaly available in the USA) and purchased it again. We love the quiet sound the steam technology that prevents wrinkles and the 30cc small amount of detergent that it takes to wash our clothes and how great it smells when it is done!


Super Fast Dryer

By alwf

from orlando, fl

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

I was on the search for a big, fast, steam dryer. Something I can dry my comforters and blankets in without drying them for 2 or 3 hours. This dryer is one of the biggest on the market that I've seen and it dries my comforters super fast. I keep comforters in my car for my dog so I have to wash them regularly, and this dryer makes my life much easier. I am soooo happy! My towels dry fast, and the steam feature works great! I think I'll save up to buy the washer next!


I am extremely happy with my new dryer

By Marilyn

from Portland, OR, United States

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

The Electrolux Dryer has, as my salesperson said it would, proven to be both attractive and a real work horse. I find it efficient and simple to use.


Not pleased with dryer

By Traker

from Wisconsin

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

We purchased this set about 18 months ago and had to have the heating element replaced already. For the cost of the machine I was not very pleased that this happened in such a short time of owning it. I sure hope this is not going to be an issue every 18 months.


Still not fixed! Worst Dryer I have ever owned

By gene C

from Brick NJ

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

After 2 weeks waiting for service, on a gas dryer the service guy tells me its the igniter. 2 and 1/2 weeks later he shows up yesterday to install and after he puts it in, it still won't work, now its the Main Control Board (He tells me at least another week for that part. This is unbelievable. I will never ever buy another Electrolux appliance

Super Quiet!

By nivulflog

from Omaha, NE, United States

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

I bought this about 2 months ago and am amazed by how quiet it is. I also love the fact that the matching washer is able to have the door reversed (I think it may be the only one on the market to do that)
