Not everyone needs washing machines that can fit large quantities of clothes and there are many whose living space doesn’t even allow the installation of a full sized machine. This Electrolux washing machine, while very compact, still has features found in advanced large washing machines. It even has steam cycles: a rarity in compact washing machines.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Compact, yet spacious
With a footprint measuring 24 x 25 inches, this machine is much smaller than standard washing machines. Its size lets you install it in compact apartments without hogging up much space. Despite the small size, its 2.4 cubic ft capacity should be enough to fit the laundry load of 2 people.
Pro Can sanitize and freshen up clothes with the steam feature
This washer has a steam feature available, something rarely found in a compact machine. Steam allows you to sanitize and freshen up your clothes in an effective manner. Also, while other washers apply steam from the top, with this unit the steam is applied from the bottom, allowing it to cover the laundry more evenly.
Pro Gets rid of moisture with high spinning speed
This machine does an excellent job getting rid of excess moisture in the laundry by spinning the clothes with a maximum spinning speed of 1400 RPM. This means you don’t need to use the dryer as much.
Pro Prevents some laundry mistakes you could have made
While there are lots of cycle customization options available, the machine will not allow you to go overboard and ruin your clothes. For example, you will not be able to use boiling hot water or maximum spinning speed on delicate cycles.
Pro Versatile cycle choices
There is a total of 14 cycles available, enough to cover most laundry washing needs. The machine will also remember 3 of your favorite cycles and settings, so you can switch between them with a press of a button.
Con No drum light
There is no drum light, so there is a risk of leaving something inside the machine if you’re not thorough.
