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.

  • 1Based on cloth temperature. January 2012.
  • 2Based on manufacturer specifications among common 27" platforms.
  • 3Eligibility based on product registration with Electrolux North America within 60 days of purchase. Products must have been purchased on or after July 1, 2013. Coverage includes material parts for 3 years and labor for 1 year.
