The EFME617SIW uses moisture sensors to adjust how much time is needed to completely dry the clothes.The time initially shown on the display is an approximation, it will get adjusted throughout the cycle to prevent over-drying or damp clothes. If you need precise timing, then you can just set the dryer to ‘timed dry’ mode and define the desired drying period. See More
There are 9 cycles to choose from, ranging from the often used normal, casual and heavy duty ones, to specific cycles for killing bacteria, a cycle for delicates and even a cycle for towels. There are also steam cycles. See More
This dryer is more gentle to your clothes compared to others, since the applied temperatures are around 10 or 20 degrees colder than those usually used by competitors. This contributes to your clothes lasting longer. On top of this, the machine doesn’t allow combinations of settings that can potentially ruin your laundry. For example, it’s not possible to set the machine’s higher temperatures while using a delicate cycle. See More
Electrolux provides a lifetime warranty for the tub, guaranteeing its continued use for several years. As for the motor, it has a ten year warranty that will cover the part itself, but not the labor costs. There’s also a one year general warranty that will cover labor and parts if anything goes wrong (this one can be extended with some dealers). See More
Since it’s significantly smaller than standard dryers, it easily fits into places where space is an issue. The dryer doesn’t require external ventilation or a drain hose to set up, which is great for compact apartments where setting those up would be almost impossible. See More

Unfortunately, the cycle temperatures can get very high, especially the ones for the delicate cycle. Although it has dampness sensors that automatically turns off the machine to prevent over drying, you should still be careful with very colorful or fragile laundry as there is a risk of ruining them with the temperatures.

While the drum capacity isn’t the largest in the market, it still does a really good job drying large, bulky items. The bedding cycle runs for only an hour and can get a large comforter almost completely dry, impressive for a machine of this size and price. See More
While a lot of modern dryers have touchscreen controls and a myriad of cycles to choose from, Amana keeps it simple. It has a big dial with 11 modes to choose from and a start button. The symbols are big and easy to understand, which might actually be useful for people who typically have trouble with touchscreen displays. See More
When it comes to aesthetics, this dryer definitely stands out. The metal, chrome, and glass construction looks great and feels solid. The machine’s front is a large glass door with all of the controls on it. There is no conventional door handle, further improving its aesthetics. See More
This unit has dimensions that are noticeably larger than regular machines. Measuring 30 inches wide, it can be complicated to fit it through doors and leave enough room for the actual installation. It also requires 57 more inches of space for the door to open all the way. See More
