Before we purchased our Electrolux front loading washer, the salesman at the appliance store demonstrated the many features of the machine. Compared to the brand we had been using for years, the things that the Electrolux could do were so far advanced that it was like light years ahead of our old machine. We purchased immediately. Since then the true test of the product came when we actually had it in our home and used it. The results are astonishing! It's easy to use, it's quiet, cycle choices include every imaginable type of desired wash, it's gorgeous sitting in your home, it saves on electricitry and water, and best of all, it really cleans. Since purchasing our Electrolux washer and realizing the quality they put into their products, we went back and bought the dryer, stove, oven, warming trays and dishwasher. And the best part, in over a year now, everything performs beautifully. You might find some of the Electrolux features in other name brands but you will never find all of them in one and you will never find better.

We have had a front load washer for over 10 years now and it finally came time to purchase new. We had enjoyed our previous model but felt we should look at all brands openly. After selecting the 4.4 Wave Touch Electrolux we felt we had selected a quality unit. After we installed the unit, it ran its "install cycle" and passed. On the first load we only put couple pairs of pants, one shirt, and some socks and used the Normal cycle. About 15 minutes in the washer stopped, and never moved again, then it produced an error code. I was then forced to rinse my load by hand. While I am quite an understanding person, when a family purchases a "top of the line" model there is, and should be, a level of excellent implided. If not for the large sum of money spent, then at least for the brand name's own self respect. I am hoping we get through this "error" with no further problems, but I am questioning quality control of a high end unit... Make sense???

Comments about Electrolux Island White Front Load Washer:
We bought these units in July, because our old set was 10 years old and the the top load washer was so noisy and jumped around when spinning, especially with a relatively small load. The new front load washer is so quiet one can hardly hear it even with the smallest of load. We like the selections it offers to optimize the cleaning cycle to the type of load you want to wash.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Working out well...

I haven't had a new washer/dryer in over 13 years so i was thrilled with the idea of new appliances. They have performed to my expectation and I would recommend them to anyone.
from Carlsbad, CA, United States
We replaced a rather newer competitive model and what a big advantage the Electrolux have. The controls are intuitive, the wash is quick and very clean. I don't dread wash day anymore
Super nice washer with reverable door
from Fairmont, MN, United States
This is the only front load washer that I found that has reversible door. My application required the washer on the right and dryer on the left. It is very quiet and large capacity. My wife loves it.
Special and Favorites
Love the capability to create Favorites and Special wash cycles. The Hand Wash option is the best and the reason we bought it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

In the words of Billy Ocean...it is simply- awesome.
Overall nice upgrade
from Huron, OH
We purchased this set as replacements for an aging Samsung setup which served us well. Overall the unit works great and does a great job of cleaning clothes. There are more settings than most need but it's nice to have the options and the ability to customize your own is great. As with all front loaders, there is still the issue with water being trapped and causing a musty smell. They have included a "cleaning" setting which you use with the freshener tabs you can buy and it seems to work out quite well. It's not perfect but manageable. My only MAJOR issue was with the dryer. After about 11 months the heater core and thermal overload switch went out. The good news was Electrolux stepped up without question and covered the repair under warranty. The major issue was being without the dryer for almost a month while the parts had to be ordered. Fortunately we have a backup but for those that don't this could pose a problem. From what the repairman told us this is a normal issue with this unit as they came damaged from the factory. Ours was no exception which leads me to believe there may be some QC issues during assembly. For the price paid I think the features and performance are great but I'm still questioning the long-term performance from a quality stand point. I'm glad I purchased the extra 5 year warranty which gives me a full 8 years of coverage.
