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???

I bought this washer two months ago after long research and I'm so glad I purchased it. Besides being great for everyday loads, it's extremely gentle for delicate items (the hand wash setting is fantastic!) and the whitest whites setting really enhances your whites! It also lets you personalize all the standard setting, for example I like to add a fresh rinse and extra water, or the stain pre-treat. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. The matching drier is great as well.

We needed a new washer dryer because our old one was taking 3 -4 cycles to dry the clothes. We especially likedt the Electrolux because we were able to customize the openings for both, making the washer open to the right and the dryer open to the left making transferring the clothes from one to the other possible.

When we moved into our new home, we, of course, splurged on a new set. Electrolux was recommended to us. But I couldn't be more disappointed. The control set up is cumbersome to use. If you want to delay your load, you have to scroll through the 12 choices under the options menu. Of course, it's #6 on the list so there's no quick way to get there - apparently "settings" and "stain guides" are more frequently used than "delay". The door mechanism was obviously done for aesthetics but quite frankly a handle would have been nicer. The push latch is temperamental and is annoying. The dispenser system is terrible. I'm not convinced that it works every time - I'm pretty sure the fabric softener I'm adding is just going down the drain. I had someone come out to see if there was something I was doing or a problem with the machine, instead I got a lecture about the ingredients of laundry soap and fabric softener.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Lots of options but not enough...
from Fairfield, CT, United States
Overall a great washer that doesn't take over an hour for every cycle. You get a ton of options but they aren't all available for every cycle. I think and extra rinse (called Fresh Rinse) isn't always available but should be (why should the washer have the say if I can or can not have an extra rinse) no matter what cycle. The "Add Water" adds a little more water but only in the wash and not in the rinses. I really wish the rinses were DEEPER, there's totally way LESS water in the rinses than in the washes. I won't use any more than the "Minimum" for detergent or you're going to have too much residual detergent left in the clothes. Overall it's a really good washer I just would change some things if I were designing the cycles and options so the user would have more choices.
Very disappointed. The controls are cumbersome to use.. The door mechanism done for the aesthetics is a pain. And I Hate the dispenser system (I don't think it works consistently.)
Awesome Love this machine!

IT is very quiet . Does what it is suppose to . I have washed everything in the house I think. It handles the large king size bedding without any problems. The fast wash is a super feature.

This washer exceeds my expectations. It has some great features and is very efficient. Clothes come out damp, thus significantly reducing drying time. I recommend this washer to anyone looking for a good high efficiency front load washer.
I bought this a month ago and im so happy with it!
