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???

Not happy with this washer
Comments about Electrolux Island White Front Load Washer:
I am not happy with this washer. The main problem is that it dosn't rinse well at all. I know I am suppose to use very little soap but, it still doesn't get rid of the soap. I always have to run rinse and spin several times after cleaning the clothes. Which is ver enjoying. I few day ago a big pice of the door fell of too.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Time and Clothes Saver
This machine really does it all. I researched all the front load machines on the market, looked at the features, discussed repair issues with the techs from the appliance people and chose this unit. I installed it myself which was cake. The settings are plentiful yet simple to choose from and the spin cycle to remove water is second to none. Highest RPM available in its class. Clothes come out damp, at worst, saving on drying time and temperature for the delicate stuff. It is very gentle on all cloth types, very efficient with water and (as a result) soap use, and the washer is everything I expected, except for the fact it doesn't have a "folding clothes" feature, but that's what grandma is for I suppose. The unit has been used daily for the last 3 months and hasn't missed a beat. I love doing laundry because it no longer damages my clothes and they come out looking great. The first night I installed it in our basement, my kid and I sat in front of it and watched it cycle a load of clothes with the interior light on. The spin cycle was amazing to watch. It was a 2 beer event from beginning to end! Great product.
On going problem
Machine looks great but I was plagued with an E13 code that is still popping up!!! It has been serviced many time replacing sensors, control board still having an issue! I wish it could be replaced! You have to play their game and take it step by step , the one saving grace is that the machine only throughs the code once every 3-4 cycles so I can at least get some of my families clothes washed .. It's a frustrating inconvience.
Love that I can do a load of wash in under 30 minutes! Uses very little water and my clothes still come out clean and fresh.
My wife and I renovated our home and as part of the work, we refreshed our appliances. The Electrolux washer/dryer was highly recommended by our appliance guy so we ended up purchasing two sets; 70 series for upstairs, 50 series for downstairs. One of the major selling points of Electrolux was the Perfect Balance System. Unfortunately, within the first month of usage, we noticed that we could feel vibrations during the final spin cycle. In some cases, we feel vibrations from the 70 series two rooms away through carpet and on top of our bed. We also noticed that items on our office shelves (which is across a hallway and on the other side of a wall) rattle. For the 70s, we even have them on Electrolux pedestals. While we like the design and performance of the washer, the vibrations really drag down our score. Our appliance guy has had several guys come out to check the installation and they all believe that it is installed properly. So we're left with the unfortunate vibrations.
We have a front loader in our other home and the dispenser tray is not full of water at the end of a wash cycle.
Takes a while to figure out all the settings, everything is very satisfactory so far.
We have been pleased with the washer and dryer. It does a great job and offers needed functions. We did have an issue with the detergent drawer and we contacted customer care. They were very helpful in getting answers and setting up warrenty repairs.
Overall I am somewhat disappointed with the product. Based on the price and the history of the company, I expected the machine to perform better. It is less than a year old and I have already had multiple problems. It refuses to wash in cold water (always at least warm). The bleach and fabric softener retain water between loads and the led display is always dimly lit unless you unplug the machine. The dryer does not steam anymore. All problems are currently under work order but I lost another day of work today while the repair person came out and when he opened the box for the new part it contained a part that looked as if it had been repaired and was very beaten up. The new display board that was sent was only the lens that covered the display. New parts have been ordered and another day of work will be lost when they arrive.
