There is great pleasure in using the right tool for the job. I feel that way about my dryer (and washer, too). Press the LED light to indicate the combination of time and temperature you want - or go with the automated details for the kind of load you are drying. It's quiet and chimes when it's finished. I like to be gently summoned. I hope these well-designed machines will be with me for a long time.

We purchased this dryer to replace our awesome GE DCVH680GWH that we bought from ABT a few years ago but had to leave behind when we moved. We had heard good things about the Electrolux brand, and noticed taht there was a recent price drop, so went for it.This dryer is large and efficient, which is both a blessing and a curse. It can hold a giant load of clothes, but smaller loads don't always get dry. The sensors in the back fo the dryer require regular contact with the clothes to dry properly,and so for "engergy efficiency" will rapidly move the countdown timer forward if they don't sense the amount of moisture they're expecting. When smaller loads are running, they all tumble toward the front of the dryer (near the door) resulting in the sensors thinking the load is dryer than it is, ending in a damp-dry load. It's not very efficient to have to run two cycles, or use the timed dry feature and risk over-drying a load. We did not have this problem with our GE; even though it was less expensive it was still "smart" enough to dry any size or type of load. We'll probably make the adjustment over time, but it was enough of a bother initially that we had two service calls before the master technician explained the sensor issue to us. In any case, the unit has been mechanically solid so far; we have not had a chance to use the steam cycle yet, but are glad to have the option. It's quiet. The controls are a little clunky and slow, but again, not a huge problem. I am recommending this dryer, but only to those who are not doing small loads of clothes; get this if you have a large family or need to wash a lot of things at one time most of the time, or if you're ok with just using the timed drying cycle.

Great results. OK product design.
Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. EIMGD55I Blue Gas Front Load Dryer:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
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
from New York, NY, United States
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?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Since 1955 we have used an Electrolux vacuum of one sort or another and thus know the long-term quality associated with the brand. We moved, both washer and dryer had to be replaced quickly. The Electrolux units stood out for features and the price was in line with comparable units of other brands. Function choices are more than needed, signal bells are not obnoxious as many are, plus they are optional.

I absolutely love my dryer! I have the matching set and love both the washer and dryer! They are fantastic, love that the door opens with just a touch of the finger and the pedestal has amazing storage! Love the fast dry setting, and being able to put two loads of wet jeans in the dryer together and them come out completely dry! I can't wait to buy more Electrolux appliances!
I researched dryers looking for a high rated unit with stainless steel drum and enough cycles and features to make my wife happy. This unit fit the bill. It works as it should. Fit and finish is also good. Enough said.
Dryer leaked water
After having my new washer and dryer stacked and install in my newly renovated laundry the machines seemed to be working well. They were quiet and seemed to be working efficiently, both washing and drying. Then one day i go into the laundry room and find there's water all over the new floor after drying the floor and pulling the machines out of the cabinet enclosure I see water all over the backs of the machines but no indication of where it's coming from. after calling the appliance dealer and arranging for a tech to come out I tried to recreate the leak with no success. the tech came out a couple of days later and found the water supply line inside the dryer was 3" short of the connector it should have been hooked to.So when ever the dryer used water in a cycle it would just spray water out of the back of the machine. since the replacement of the supply line everything seems to be fine now i just have to hope it doesn't rust or corrode.
