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.

Electrolux washer and dryer

By Lorraine

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. EIMGD55I Blue Gas Front Load Dryer:

So far so good.  The washer cleans well and the dryer is efficient.  I like the stacking units because they give me more space in my very small laundry room.

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. EIMGD55I White Gas Front Load Dryer:

It's big, it's easy to use. Just enough functions but not too many. Fairly loud.

Service and delivery comments:

I originally received this item about 7 months ago. Because of delays with our remodel, it was not opened. When I did open it, I discovered that it had been heavily damaged. Even though it was well past the inspection window, ABT sent another unit and took the damaged one. Fantastic service.

best dryer

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. EIMGD55I Blue Gas Front Load Dryer:

We had a dryer that was 13 years old, it finally took a dive, we shopped around and looked for a" DEAL", we looked at a appliance company and after the sales man explained some of the great features the dryer had, we really liked what we saw. We liked he idea that we could wash the comforter and sheets and then dry them altogether, wow with this dryer we can dry everything at once!! We also liked the steam features for my shirts no ironing. And of course the name Electrolux, it means excellent machines that my mom used 40 years ago!!! Great work

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. EIMGD55I Blue Gas Front Load Dryer:

I have to run the dryer at least two times to dry my clothes.  Towels are the worst.  What is the deal.  i spend more money running it than an electric one and i am considering getting rid of this dryer for an electric one and the gas dryer is only 2 years old

Electrolux Gas Dryer

By Jenn

from Undisclosed

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. EIMGD55I Blue Gas Front Load Dryer:

The dryer works very well. It is stackable to sit atop our washer which is a nice space saving feature. The dryer is easy to use with many nice preprogrammed cycles and the ability to set a favorite setting. It runs very quietly and dries our laundry quickly and efficiently.

Great Size, Great Features

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. EIMGD55I Blue Gas Front Load Dryer:

My fiancee and I both work alot, so we are only able to do laundry about once every 2 weeks. This dryer fits a lot of clothes in it, so biweekly laundry isn't a hassle! It also has alot of different options for cycles, clothing type, and temperature. The only negative I have come across is that sometimes clothes may need to be dried twice.

Good but sensor status unclear

By Peach

from Undisclosed

Comments about Electrolux 8.0 Cu. Ft. EIMGD55I Blue Gas Front Load Dryer:

I bought this to replace and match my old dryer that had simple two option dryer setting: permanent press and regular w dampness sensor. This dryer has many many options plus the steam. It is fancy and large capacity which I love. However, the settings are too many and too confusing and I don't even know if it is doing the dampness sensing as all the settings have a set time. With the amount of load I haven't times myself a load cycle to see if the duration of cycle is extended it shortened. I've had a few cycle that ended damper than expected and I was hoping the dryer had "fuzzy intelligence" to adjust to the correct dryness according to the setting but I have been disappointed.
