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.

Exceeds expectations in every way.

Debbie28856 4/24/2018

Have had this for 60 days and wish I had bought it sooner Not only does it cover the basics with aplomb as you would expect but it has additional features that have changed the way I manage laundry. Example: I found the sanitize cycle just perfect for really cleaning housekeeping rags. Fits all the bedding from a Cal King bed with ease. And super quiet...the only way I remember it is running is when I hear the end of cycle timer. I purchased the stacking kit and both the washer and the dryer model EFMG517SIW fit nicely in an upstairs closet. Such an improvement over my Kenmore stacking set in features capacity quality and ease of use.

Lacking features

Les5 4/24/2018

We bought this set because the salesman gave it the highest ratings. We are so disappointed that there is no way to lock the settings while the machine is on and if a kiddo happens to shut the machine off while it is washing there is no way to know if it actually finished or was just shut off. Our old set a different brand has both of these features and we miss them We also have a lot of fabric remnants remaining in our washer after washing on heavy duty. Im not so sure our fabrics are going to hold up very long

Excellent Choice for Our Families Washer Dryer

Bert and Ernie 4/24/2018

When it became time to purchase a new washer/dryer for our home we did the appropriate research to understand what worked best for our family. When we mentioned we were shopping for a new washer and dryer to our friends and family we heard so many positive experiences about Electrolux it certainly had us narrow our selection. Finally discussing the advantages of the Electrolux product with the Sales Team in Jamaica Plain helped confirm our final choice. The great news is we can now can tetify our units were absolutely the right choice for our family and have lived up to all the praise

Weak.

gajames 4/23/2018

We have owned it less than 60 days and it became hopelessly clogged. There is no filter accessible to the user so we cant even do anything proactive to keep it from clogging again. Adding the cost of a service call to the price makes this not a good value for the price.

Excellent w/d pair

Cindi2658 4/14/2018

I did quite a bit of research before purchasing but one of the important factors was I needed reversible doors due to my limited closet space w/accordion doors and hookups. Read many good reviews on the Electrolux and Im so glad I went with it. Washing time even w/extra rinse selected is much less than my previous washer was wash quality is excellent amazingly quiet and barely any vibration if any at all during spin cycle considering its not even a half inch away from the dryer and even when washing several pairs of mens jeans With high spin setting our clothes come out nearly dry cutting down a lot on drying time. Love the steam feature and the fact that both the washer and dryer have lights in them and surprised at how large the capacity is. Purchased extended care program from the store for the washer that includes annual maintenance checkup and replacement parts etc. so not expecting any major issues. The openings are a bit lower than my previous front loader but looking to resolve with the addition of a 4-6 raised platform. Even so have had for about a month but so far so great and Im just loving it

No proper warm or hot wash

Lindy 2018 4/10/2018

I had an Electrolux repairman out this morning because I was unable to get a warm or hot wash despite making the selection for either. I usually wash everything in cold water He was perplexed as well and called in to get the temperatures. They are as follows: warm upper 60F hot 75-80F. Keep in mind that your body temperature is 98.6F and most indoor public swimming pools are between 77- 82F. The only way to get hot water is to use the sanitize function which heats the water to 152F fine for diapers but too hot for most clothing.

LifeAtTheBeach 4/9/2018

It would be incredibly hard to find a laundry scenario that this washer cant handle There are so many options available and while I havent tried all of them the ones I have tried work well. The spin is super fast and leaves clothes needing very little dry time. The noise level when the unit is running is fairly low. The pedestal / storage bin underneath offers a ton of storage. The only con I can find is that the buzzer is either on or off .... I wish I could adjust the volume to make it a bit louder. Overall a great value for the money

I bought this washer over 6 months ago. It has been very reliable. I can wash big loads and so have cut down on the time it has taken me to do my laundry. I can also wash smaller loads. Also I love the 18 minute quick wash. I also have noticed better drainage of the rubber door gasket thus no standing water to grow into mold or mildew. I really like this washer.

Some nice features

Regency 4/5/2018

I only have my machines a few weeks. Generally they are good but there are a few things I would change. The 18 min wash is great but I cant control all the temp and wash speed settings. The washer door swings all the way out when left open. The dryer setting for time dry has a minimum of 30 minutes. I should be able to select less time. The pedastal doors with push button spring loaded release are sometimes difficult to open. A new closure button has already been order for one drawer.

What an upgrade

charvesf 4/1/2018

When our old washer broke down we decided it was time to upgrade to something modern and more efficient. The Electrolux washers and dryers came highly recommended. One friend went as far as to say I dont go to the dry cleaners anymore. After our first load we were hooked. One the front-load washer uses less water than our old top-loader. And both the washer and dryer have an eco mode which saves on electricity too. Two the clothes came out cleaner and softer. You can tell the machines are much easier on your clothes. We love both machines
