    My fiancee and I both work alot, so we are only able to do laundry about once every 2 weeks. This dryer fits a lot of clothes in it, so biweekly laundry isn't a hassle! It also has alot of different options for cycles, clothing type, and temperature. The only negative I have come across is that sometimes clothes may need to be dried twice.

    I bought this to replace and match my old dryer that had simple two option dryer setting: permanent press and regular w dampness sensor. This dryer has many many options plus the steam. It is fancy and large capacity which I love. However, the settings are too many and too confusing and I don't even know if it is doing the dampness sensing as all the settings have a set time. With the amount of load I haven't times myself a load cycle to see if the duration of cycle is extended it shortened. I've had a few cycle that ended damper than expected and I was hoping the dryer had "fuzzy intelligence" to adjust to the correct dryness according to the setting but I have been disappointed.

    Tthe dryer itself worked fine. Not any better, however, than the much lower-priced dryer I replaced. Within the first 16 months the dryer stopped working. I had purchased an extended warranty through the store I bought the dryer from, a locally-owned business. That was my first mistake. Purchase the extended warranty through Electrolux. The local company could not send a tech for two weeks. I called Electrolux to find out that parts were still under the original warranty during the second year, and they kindly issued a voucher to cover the labor. They also arranged for a tech to come the same day. That all sounds good, except he came and said it needed new rollers. They had to be ordered. The local warehouse only had two, so the other three had to be ordered. It took another two weeks for them to come in, so I ended up being without the dryer for one month. While Electrolux went above and beyond to help me get the issue corrected, I would not recommend the dryer because I feel that a dryer of this price range should not be breaking down within 16 months of purchase in a home that has two empty-nesters and a minimal amount of laundry loads.

    This item has been somewhat of a disappointment. I have owned it less than a year and have already had to have it serviced twice. It rarely dries my clothes on the first cycle. I almost always have to run another cycle to get them completely dry.  Also, because of the design and shape of the drum you cannot use a fabric softener bar in it. There isn't a uninterrupted flat space long enough to accommodate it.

    The dryer I bought now works great once you figure out the flaws. First lets start from the beginning. The dryer came in defective. The service people fixed my machine to tip top shape. But this took a while because they carry no parts in stock. Everything had to be ordered. This took a while because two things were bad . He fixed one thing to find out something else was no good also. Now the flaw with this machine is no drying of sneakers or floor mats. These items get caught between the drum and the blades and kiss your very very very thin drum belt goodbye. Now every day drying of clothes is good. The machine runs on lp gas and is quiet. The drum is huge so clothes come out with no wrinkles.

    We have the washer and dryer in a closet by the kitchen. The noise when both are running is not a problem. We had one service call after the mrs pushed a sock into the lint filter area. Definitely operator error. The only problem I have with it is that the door keeps popping open. This maybe a problem with most front loaders doors. A stronger manual outside latch would be a good idea.

    We purchased both the IQ-Touch Washer and Dryer and have found them to be amazing. We really like the steam feature and the bulky bedding cycles on the dryer. Both washer and dryer are fast and efficient. Although I always try to remember to clean the lint filter one day I forgot and it gave me a message to clean the filter another nice feature for both is that we watch TV in the same room and when they are on, they are so quiet we can hear the TV without having to increase the volume. Many nice features and would recommend these products to our friends.

    There is great pleasure in using the right tool for the job. I feel that way about my dryer (and washer, too). Press the LED light to indicate the combination of time and temperature you want - or go with the automated details for the kind of load you are drying. It's quiet and chimes when it's finished. I like to be gently summoned. I hope these well-designed machines will be with me for a long time.

    We had a dryer that was 13 years old, it finally took a dive, we shopped around and looked for a" DEAL", we looked at a appliance company and after the sales man explained some of the great features the dryer had, we really liked what we saw. We liked he idea that we could wash the comforter and sheets and then dry them altogether, wow with this dryer we can dry everything at once!! We also liked the steam features for my shirts no ironing. And of course the name Electrolux, it means excellent machines that my mom used 40 years ago!!! Great work

    I would have difficult time recommending this dryer since I purchased it for $947 and it needed a repair within 17 months of purchase. There is only a 12 month warranty on their products. I will pay much better attention to the manufactures warranty in my future purchases. The extended warranty was $499 at time of the purchase and there was no way I could afford that as well since I also purchased the washer at around $950 as well.. The blower box had a crack and needed to be replaced as well as the motor shaft.  I can't say I would purchase an Electrolux product again. I'm sorry but a product of this price point should last more than 17 months.   Very disappointing.

    After having my new washer and dryer stacked and install in my newly renovated laundry the machines seemed to be working well. They were quiet and seemed to be working efficiently, both washing and drying. Then one day i go into the laundry room and find there's water all over the new floor after drying the floor and pulling the machines out of the cabinet enclosure I see water all over the backs of the machines but no indication of where it's coming from. after calling the appliance dealer and arranging for a tech to come out I tried to recreate the leak with no success. the tech came out a couple of days later and found the water supply line inside the dryer was 3" short of the connector it should have been hooked to.So when ever the dryer used water in a cycle it would just spray water out of the back of the machine. since the replacement of the supply line everything seems to be fine now i just have to hope it doesn't rust or corrode.
