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 Silver Sands Front Load Washer:
The one thing I wish I had paid closer attention to is that the factory settings for the washing machine assume you don't have athletes in your home. My son and husband's work out clothes require that I change the soil level (from light to heavy) on the machine. Totally my fault but I didn't make the adjustment at first and their clothes upon the next wearing would smell bad as soon as they they began to sweat. Once I adjusted the setting, all was well.

Comments about Electrolux Island White Front Load Washer:
Rubber gasket in the door holds the water, and discolor and gets a moldy smell Have to wipe it out with a towel after EVERT wash load
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very happy with this purchase. We have the matching dryer we purchased a couple of years ago. We had such good luck and enjoyed all the features we went with this washer. On the fast spin the clothes come out practically dry. Would highly recommend this washer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Love it/Hate it
I really love all the different choices & ways to wash my clothes. The machine does a wonderful job of washing all kinds of clothes, bedding & other items. BUT at only 6 months of age the washer broke & would not spin or agitate. Finding someone to work on it was a little difficult also. Electrolux got someone who came 5 days after it broke. A part had to be ordered which will be another week to 10 days. Meanwhile I'm having to go to the laundromat. I'm not a happy camper!!!
BANG FOR THE BUCK
We got it about month ago and all I hear from my wife is how awesome it is and how many features there are, etc.., etc... It's super silent, has fast wash cycles. Controls are simple - I managed to do the laundry myself once:) Yet you can easily tweak the settings if you want (and know how) to get more out of it. In terms of features for the money - just go to your local appliance store and do the comparison for yourself.
Love this machine. Love the easy to read highlighted window describing the type of cycle I can choose and the time remaining. Purchased the pedestal. Although costly, well worth the extra money for anyone with back issues. Also, love the perfect steam feature. It really does work. Every wrinkle magically disappears with this cycle. Very happy with how well my clothes look and feel after being washed in my new washer. :)
This washer is very consumer friendly. The wash selections are easy to make and save for future use. The clothes are clean. I like the energy conserving features. The product is a value at this price.
This washer and dryer is great but i wish they had more color to choose from also the washer inside rubber is very big and bucky. i don't like the rubber style on the inside. it wash great
Love this washer. There is a learning curve to using it since it has the lcd screen and the options aren't visible until you go into each setting. I haven't had any issues with it, but it is still only about a month old.
Very good product know that initial problems fixed
Picked this washer for two reasons good reviews and appliance store recommendation. Within a day of delivery I had problems with the main knob. It made a scratching sound everytime you switch settings like metal rubbing. The other problem was the door would not open when you touch it. We went through two repair companies to finally get it fixed. I also have excessive amount of water remaining in soap trays after wash I know this could be normal but find it a bit excessive. I was offered to switch out the washer for another make but decided to stick with it do to features and washing capabilities. Overall very satisfied with washer hopefully my problem was an isolated issue.
