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.

problems within 16 months

By Deb

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

Tthe dryer itself worked fine. Not any better, however, than the much lower-priced dryer I replaced. Within the first 16 months the dryer stopped working. I had purchased an extended warranty through the store I bought the dryer from, a locally-owned business. That was my first mistake. Purchase the extended warranty through Electrolux. The local company could not send a tech for two weeks. I called Electrolux to find out that parts were still under the original warranty during the second year, and they kindly issued a voucher to cover the labor. They also arranged for a tech to come the same day. That all sounds good, except he came and said it needed new rollers. They had to be ordered. The local warehouse only had two, so the other three had to be ordered. It took another two weeks for them to come in, so I ended up being without the dryer for one month. While Electrolux went above and beyond to help me get the issue corrected, I would not recommend the dryer because I feel that a dryer of this price range should not be breaking down within 16 months of purchase in a home that has two empty-nesters and a minimal amount of laundry loads.

Superb Machine

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

This is one great dryer! We have had front load washers and dryers for over forty years but this one is by far the best. With its huge drum and special features like steam, options for drying, etc. it has been a real pleasure to work with.

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

This item has been somewhat of a disappointment. I have owned it less than a year and have already had to have it serviced twice. It rarely dries my clothes on the first cycle. I almost always have to run another cycle to get them completely dry.  Also, because of the design and shape of the drum you cannot use a fabric softener bar in it. There isn't a uninterrupted flat space long enough to accommodate it.

good machine

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

The dryer I bought now works great once you figure out the flaws. First lets start from the beginning. The dryer came in defective. The service people fixed my machine to tip top shape. But this took a while because they carry no parts in stock. Everything had to be ordered. This took a while because two things were bad . He fixed one thing to find out something else was no good also. Now the flaw with this machine is no drying of sneakers or floor mats. These items get caught between the drum and the blades and kiss your very very very thin drum belt goodbye. Now every day drying of clothes is good. The machine runs on lp gas and is quiet. The drum is huge so clothes come out with no wrinkles.

Dryer Boy

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

On the plus side, I like the feature and controls. One complaint is that the maximum temp is not very hot compare to my old dryer. (Yes the exhaust pipes have been cleaned). It takes a long time to dry towels and heavier items. Also the door latch broke after 3 months. It was repaired for free under warranty, but it makes me question quality now that the warranty has expired.

Nice and quiet

By Joner

from Undisclosed

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

We have the washer and dryer in a closet by the kitchen. The noise when both are running is not a problem. We had one service call after the mrs pushed a sock into the lint filter area. Definitely operator error. The only problem I have with it is that the door keeps popping open. This maybe a problem with most front loaders doors. A stronger manual outside latch would be a good idea.
