Feature and Product Videos

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Lisa_D 11/3/2021

This dryer does a great job. It is quiet and efficient. We love that it is stackable. Especially love the lint screen (that sounds silly but it's true). It's an excellent design that means less lint making it into the vent.

7 months old and Already a Burned Out Belt

Chachow 11/3/2021

I wanted some time to go by before I wrote a review. The dryer started out with five stars and after seven months I™€™d give it a 2. How can a belt burn out after seven months when only two people use the dryer. Disappointed purchase!!

Nice Dryer

Redrosedenmark 6/28/2021

We recently built a new house and bought the GE front load washer and dryer. So far I have been pleased with the dryer. My only complaint would be that the lint catcher is a little awkward to open and empty.

Terrible. Less than one star

Jillt27 5/28/2021

We had this dryer delivered a week ago and it already broke. Similar to other complaints, the lint trap lifts out during the tumble and clothes get sucked into the machine. We now have to wait a full week for an Electrolux repairman to come and fix it after only using it for ONE week! Customer service was also terrible. Waited on hold for 25 minutes to even speak to someone. We paid $1000 dollars for this machine. Unbelievable.

It will cost you more than you think

Axotigger 4/29/2021

We purchased this unit about 8 months ago, when Lowe™€™s first received it. The sales person had no feedback or knowledge of this unit. After researching, I decided this was the unit, as it rated high in pet hair removal, anti-static, the ™€œrefresh™€, and the large capacity. After 8 months, it has destroyed Lululemon leggings, North-face sweatshirts, and school/work uniforms. The lint filter had been found in 2 pc at the back of the dryer. The door pops open at half capacity, or a single pair of shoes. The worst part is the ™€œextended refresh™€ is just a continuous rinse that locks the machine until you stop it at the end of the cycle. Yet advertising as it will dry your clothes so you don™€™t have to keep rewashing.

Cmoore54 4/3/2021

I purchased my dryer because I loved all the wonderful features it had to offer. No salesperson needed for this dryer. The dryer sells itself. My clothes come out fluffy and softer than any other dryer I have used in the past. I like the fact I can use the steam to freshen my clothes if I need to remove the wrinkles if I let them sit to long in the dryer. Definitely will stay with this product in the future.

Average - Not wowed

Breanna 3/29/2021

We have had the unit for about 11 months now. We purchased it because of its higher energy start rating and good reviews. I am not sure we achieve the energy star rating though because rarely do clothes come out dry the first time so we have to add another 30 minutes. It doesn't seem to matter what size of load or what heat setting we have it set to. For some reason smaller items such as socks or underwear get stuck up against the door and those items don't dry at all. I've never had this with other machines. The machine is pretty quite and easy to use but overall not wowed by it for the price we paid.

BillSp 3/29/2021

What dried in about 30 minutes in our previous dryer takes at least double in this one. But it does have a great lint filter. Hopefully better for the clothes.

I've been using about 3 months now and works great! I bought this set because only this brand can change the front door directions. I have a situation that my washer has to go in to the right side. Put the dryer on left side and changed the front door to open "right" side. Voila! Side by side! Works great, so far so good!

DebCC 2/24/2021

This is our 2nd Electrolux purchased in the past few years due to having to move twice. I like the brand and all the options it has. However I would say I prefer the prior model we had, the new one doesn't seem to get towels as warm and dry as before. Not a huge distinction, but noticeable to me.Also I find the new lint trap style hard to pry apart (I have arthritic fingers).
