Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Uses detergent more efficiently
This machine premixes the detergent and water in a separate compartment before being delivered to the drum. This results in a more even distribution of the detergent which means better cleaning efficiency. While it may not sound like much, it’s highly effective at improving the washes quality.
Pro Sensors optimize washing performance
The washing machine is filled with sensors to make each cycle optimal. It can detect how much laundry is in the machine, so it can adjust accordingly. It also measures the temperature, to ensure it's at the most appropriate level.
Pro Helps prevent laundry mistakes
While the machine offers a lot of flexibility when it comes to customizing the cycles, it will prevent you from making mistakes that can destroy your laundry. For example, it will not allow you to select the hottest water temperature or set very high spin speeds when you are washing your delicates or color-sensitive clothes.
Pro Ten year warranty for the motor
The machine's motor has a ten year warranty that covers the part itself (you'll still need to cover labor costs).
Pro Extendable one year general warranty
Electrolux provides a one year warranty that will cover both labor and parts, if needed. With some dealers, this warranty can be extended for longer.
Pro Lifetime warranty for the tub
Electrolux provides a lifetime warranty for the tub, excluding labor costs.
Pro Drum light turns off automatically
The drum light turns off automatically after three minutes, if the doors is left open.
Pro Ensures quiet running by minimizing vibration
This washing machine can ensure quiet and rumble-free running by using sensors that can detect unbalanced loads. If it senses a risk of vibration due to uneven load distribution, it will automatically adjust and even out the load throughout the drum.
Pro Deep cleans and sanitizes with steam
This machine uses steam to sanitize the clothes. Steam can also be used to get rid of very stubborn stains.
Pro 9 configurable cycles, for every need
There are 9 cycles to choose from. This may not seem a lot, but it actually covers all of the basics. They can be modified to your needs by changing the temperature, soil level and spin speed.
Pro Dedicated cycles for specific stains
The washer has special cycles for specific stains, like blood or chocolate. It changes the way the cycle works to correctly fight against the stain.
Pro Short cycle for emergency washes
This machine's fast cycle lasts only 15 minutes, which is great for emergency washes, when time is of the essence.
Pro Easy to understand control panel
The control panel is simplified, with clear and bright indications about their functions. None of the buttons have double functions.
Pro Two color options to choose from
This appliance is offered in two variants: a white one and a more modern, metallic gray one, which looks better, but it costs around $100 more.
Pro Drum is large enough for the average household needs
This machine's capacity should be enough for a medium-sized family’s laundry needs, given its large drum (4.4 cubic feet).
Pro Modern and cool-looking display
While most washing machines have a simple square display somewhere on the front, this one has a round display in the middle of the cycle selection knob. This makes the machine look very modern and premium.
Con No smart app
Unlike some modern washing machines, this Electrolux machine doesn’t have a mobile app that lets you control or monitor the appliance from your smart device.
Con Washing cycles can get too long
It’s definitely not the fastest washing machine, as a normal cycle takes about 50 minutes. If you choose a heavy duty cycle and add sanitizing or specific stain removal, then it can take more than three hours to finish the job.
Con Can get rough on laundry
This machine is rougher to clothes than most washing machines currently available. You have to be careful with very fragile materials, as the washer can wear them out over time.
Con Difficult to service the drain pump
The drain pump is not easy to service, as there is no direct way to reach it.
