The fact that the dryer vents on the left with a 4" cavity to house the vent pipe & that the door is reversible sold me. This is absolutely the only dryer on the market with all 3 of these features and is the main reason I purchased this dryer (I checked every brand). That 4" cavity for the vent pipe is a great invention and only Electrolux offers this. We use nearly all of the dryer settings, they are clear and intuitive. The owners manual is well-written but we rarely have to consult it. I highly recommend this dryer.

Had this dryer delivered today. 5 minutes into the initial cycle a huge puddle of water appeared on our floor. This was an internal leak and not a hose/fitting problem. Thankfully the delivery truck was only a few blocks away and they were able to take the dryer back to the appliance store. I now have to take another 4 hours off work next week (at my expense of course) to wait for the second delivery...will update this review based on what happens then. Be SURE to check steam function before your installers leave your property!

Comments about Electrolux Island White Electric Front Load Dryer:
We purchased this set of washer and dryer appliances about 2 years ago and have been happy with them with the exception of the heating elements failing in the dryer a couple weeks after the warranty ended. They've worked well but I'm beginning to question the quality.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comment on this review
I absolutely love my new dryer, the drying time and steam features are amazing! Does small to extra loads in a energy efficient manner.
Then and Now
My mom had an Electrolux canister vacuum in the 50's I would ride on. Now 60 years later I have Electrolux appliances in my home.
Best Dryer I've Had
Pros: Exceptionally quiet. Huge capacity - perfect for drying comforters and large items. LED lighted drum makes it easy to locate even the tiniest item inside. Lint filter up front is easy to clean and the dryer reminds you to clean it after each load. Controls are well designed, easy to use and understand. Appreciate the "My Favorite" option and use it all the time. The "fins" in the drum are well designed and provide for ample tumbling. My previous dryer had problems with it's design and items were always "balling up" inside and not tumbling properly. Cons: Do not like the "spring loaded" door latch. My dogs are constantly opening the door when they wag their tails into it. The chime at the end of signal is not loud enough nor long enough. Wish the display would stay lighted until I empty the dryer. To save energy, the display will turn off after awhile. I have a tendency to forget that there is a load to be folded. Very glad I bought this dryer!
This dryer has very ample capacity. Drying options are superior. I particularly like the touch up with steam no ironing! It works quietly and efficiently.
heating unit failure
The dryer has generally worked quite well, but I was very disappointed that a heating element in the dryer failed within the first two years. Electrolux was quite good in honoring the parts warranty, but it proved very difficult to get one of their approved service companies to repair the unit. There were very few approved repair services in my state (CT) and I ultimately had to get someone to come from a neighboring state.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love the size and efficiency
The size of this machine is great. I can fit all of our kids' beach towels in one load and still have room for things to move. I also wash a lot of bedding for the potty training 2-year old in the house, so this machine has saved me at least a dozen trips to the Laundromat in the last month alone. This machine wrings the clothes so dry that it cuts my drying time in half as compared to my old top load machine. This things saves me time and money...it should pay for itself in a few years. So many options, so little for me to do. This machine is this mom's new best friend. Only thing that would make it better would be if it could automatically move the clothes to the dryer for me!
Love all the different cycles, one for every need.
Feature-packed and huge
This dryer is like a Tardis, bigger on the inside! Seriously, I don't think I've ever had such a large-capacity dryer before. The interior light is a great feature, and the large door and opening make it easy to load/unload. I've dried a queen sized quilt no problem. There are a ton of settings, which I'm still learning. Another review said that they sometimes have to dry their clothes twice. I've only found that happens if I have a mixed load of clothes (like lightweight shirts and heavier jeans). I do think this could be remedied with the right settings.
Dryer with great features and a value price
By Mike Sostok
We bought this dryer and the accompanying washer to replace a unit that was about 12 years old. Owned for a month and like the variety of features for every kind of clothing. Easy to use, quiet and excellent cleaning and drying. Steam feature works well to help cut down on the drudgery of ironing especially shirts for work. Overall extremely satisfied with the washer and dryer. Look forward to many years of reliable service.
