Really NICE Dryer - So Far

Ron N Karen 2/11/2018

We bought the dryer with the 617 Washer about a month ago. Going with the 5-series saved a few bucks without giving-up any features that we care about. The dryer is VERY easy to use for a fairly advanced machine. Most of the time we simply rotate the dial to the cycle that we want and hit start. The built-in cycles are really well thought out. Just waiting to see how it lasts over the long-haul - thats why we only gave it 4-Stars for now...

2 repair visits in first month

Grizzlyclan 2/2/2018

I bought this a little over a month ago. The dryer starting making tons of noise during operation. Repair replaced the roller balls inside the dryer to help the drum rotate smoothly. Several weeks later same loud noise. Awaiting second visit from the repair company. Not happy so far. The washer has been good however.

Dont Buy this Dryer

Corrie 12/1/2017

We owned the prior model of this dryer and couldnt have been happier so when we moved and needed new appliances we of course bought the newest version. We purchased the unit in June 2016 and it worked fine until May 2016 when we have continued to have problem after problem and now the dryer is out of warranty. All Electrolux was willing to do was sell us an extended warranty for the unit and this was after the second repair by appliance technicians that we paid for entirely. We have spent approximately $500 on issues related to the lint trap that still have no been resolved. The dryer is not even 1.5 years old. I could not be more disappointed especially since I had such a great experience with Electrolux dryers previously. I do not recommend this dryer or this company and would not purchase again.

Works great but installation is a pain.

rouwerkerk 11/6/2017

Once Installed this dryer works great. With a gas dryer however the proper installation of the exhaust is very important and her I think there is a design flaw. The installation of this dryer is made extremely difficult by the short exhaust piped its tapered shape. Connecting a semi rigid 4 pipe with clamp rings is impossible because at any movement the pipe slides off. The only thing holding it in place is the metal foil tape used to seal the connection but this does not hold and it can not be trusted to remain sealed when sliding the dryer in place. A second problem is that there is only room for a 4 exhaust pipe along the bottom. It would be nice if there was room for a 4 pipe going up say along the side. For installation in a 34 deep space the exhaust was routed along the floor and then up next to the dryer. When pushing the dryer back the strain on the bottom exhaust connection compromised the seals of that connection. So longer exhaust piper to allow enough overlap and grip for attaching a semirigid or rigid 4 pipe would have helped a lot. Or even better a rotating 90 bend with a longer piece of pipe.

Great product

farconserv 11/6/2017

The dryer is a great product with fantastic features for someone who doesnt want or need one of those overly complex models with options you will never use but have paid hundreds of dollars for. In addition this is a nice looking piece of equipment that will easily fit into any style of decor you choose. Unfortunately the unit I received had an issue with it making a loud thumping noise immediately after being turned on for the first time. I was able to get service to elimi ate the noise although it was done by using a wood shim in the back panel. Not what you want to have to do to a brand new dryer Overall very happy with the product and its performance.

Both the washer and dryer have so many great features and I am using all of them I love the fact that they both have a delayed start. Im able to set up the next load of laundry so that its finished at a certain time the next morning. Very very convenient. I find lots of occasions to use the sanitize feature I didnt realize Id use it so much. My favorite is probably the steam refresh option on the dryer. I mean who hasnt forgotten that theyve left clothes in the dryer and wants to freshen up that load? That was a feature that I just KNEW I would use a lot and I have

The Donna 7/15/2017

I like that I can dry loads of all sizes including bedspreads and comforters and all the options available. Its a wonderful machine and covers every type of drying need and size of load. The one negative for me is the fact that because Im short and the dryer is in the basement of an old house the reflection from the overhead lights blanks out the settings. I have to use the instruction manual to determine how many clicks up or down I need to go to be at the settings I want. If the settings were illuminated like the dots they would be easily read.
