Electolux - The Best!

By cast9710

from Undisclosed

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

The dryer is wonderful. The settings are self explanatory and so many to choose from. Large capacity and a steam feature, who could ask for more. Fantastic Dryer.

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

We bought this dryer a couple of months ago and have nothing but good things to say about it. We liked the Electrolux refrigerator we had already purchased and when shopping for a washer and dryer it turned out that this washer/dryer pair had all of the features we needed. We didn't hesitate at that point and ordered them immediately. They have been all that was promised and then some.


Great featurs

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

I haven't bought a new dryer in 20 years and was a little shocked at the prices, but once I got it home and used it I know why now. Its supper quiet and with so many features! Love the way it senses the dryness and adjusts the dry time to avoid over drying.

Great dyer!

By Hoferw

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

I bought this dryer about a month ago and love it. It easy to operate and is packed with features. It dries clothes in a fraction of time that our old dryer did.


Great results. OK product design.

By LeighLane

from Undisclosed

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

I've been pleased with this dryer that is in my weekend home. So far, with limited usage, it's done a nice job delicately drying items without overheating and damaging fabrics, and it seems there's less need to steam or iron. I bought this for a utilitarian laundry room out of eyesight from the house. My only compliant with this product is the product design could be cleaner. I don't know that I purchase this if it was an item I would see everyday. It's not wildly offensive; however, it's not as elegant as I would like.

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

Overall, the dryer is very good. It is a big improvement to my old top-load dryer. It is also nice to use and nice to look at. I have only two complaints: 1) if the load is a little on the light side, the clothes do not get completely dry in one cycle; and 2) the high spin is a little louder than I would like.


Enormous Capacity!

By Woody

from Undisclosed

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

We love the capacity of our Electrolux, front load, gas dryer. Especially since we have four little dogs and we like to wash and dry their beds frequently. We can dry all four beds at the same time. We appreciate the different cycles that apply to different types of materials. We also like the Steam feature for taking our wrinkles and sanitizing. All in all a great machine


Ice build up along bottom

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

        My refrigerator is exactly 3 years old. Several months ago I discovered thick ice build up across the entire bottom of the freezer compartment which can interfere with ability to pull out the bottom freezer rack. I now need to empty the freezer weekly to remove the ice before the build up becomes too thick. Adjusting the freezer temperature control doesn't help. I have never used the ice maker. Does anyone who has experienced this problem have any idea on how to fix before I call service?
