Electrolux Laundry Rebate

Offer Expires: 8/1/2020 to 9/30/2020 Must be postmarked by: 11/30/2020

Enjoy exclusive rebate savings with purchase of qualifying laundry appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 11/30/2020.

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.

Lots of drying options

Sefa 7/30/2020

I bought this dryer (and washer) sight unseen because we were out of town and had people staying in our home when our dryer stopped working. This set was recommended by Johnson Brother's. I really like the many drying options it has, and the dryer works great. The one thing I don't like is the lint trap. It is very wide (about 2 and 3/4" wide) and my socks tend to land there and not get dry, and when I open the dryer, things fall out. I'm getting used to it, but I can't say I like that design.

Would not buy it again

GatoLoco 6/1/2020

I've had this dryer EFMG527UIW less than two years along with Electrolux washer EFLS527UIW. I paid almost $2000 for the set.. The only thing I like about it are some of the features, but I do not like the performance at all. First the front door is designed with a ledge, and lighter items collect there and fail to tumble and dry. On the washer. soap suds collect on the ledge. Worse than that this dryer twists everything into horrific knots, so does the washer. I've never had a set of laundry machines that tangles my laundry so; this never happened with the cheap machines from Costco. Now the steam valve on the dryer has failed. I wasn't even using the steam option when it just started pouring steam into the drum and would not stop even though I turned the dryer off. I turned the water line off, but water continued to collect on my floor overnight. Now I wonder when the valve on the washer is going to fail. Thankfully I was home or I would have had a flooded floor! Electrolux gets a F minus for this dryer and its companion washer.

First one was a lemon, replacement is great

Beth2020 5/11/2020

Got off to a rough start when the first one turned out to be a lemon. However, I got the dealer to replace it and this one is a gem. I was literally telling someone today how pleased I am with this machine when this showed up for review. I gave the laundry room an update before it arrived and the whole set up is great. I stacked it with the washer.

Solid Machine but Loud

Pritch 4/10/2020

We like our new dryer and all the different settings. My only problem is that this was sold to us as having "master bedroom guarantee": you could put these machines next to a bedroom and you wouldn't know they're on. That is NOT the case with either this or the washer. While they are effective at what they do and have nice features, these machines are LOUD. We have them in a room off of the family room and need to close that door whenever we run wash and dry loads. I still recommend these machines, but don't think that you're getting quiet machines.

Lemon Boy 4/7/2020

I purchased a month ago before quarantine. It™€™s running for a family of 6 and so far so good. I purchased this as a replacement for my Electrolux ™€œlemon™€ of a dryer. Electrolux did not refund me my total expense but rather offered a discount on a new purchase. The previous Electrolux dryer was 3 years old and I had a service tech out to repair manufacture known issues at min 3 times a year for the 3 years. If I had the option I would never purchase Electrolux products.

Shellyswimwvu 4/6/2020

After purchasing this appliance, my first ever steam dryer, I was excited about doing laundry again. It did not disappoint. The only reason I™€™m not giving it a 5 star rating is because the controls are difficult to see. It would be helpful if the panel was backlit.

Electrolux Front Load Dryer

Olson 3/30/2020

This dryer is OK. The dryers takes about double the time to dry a load of clothes as the washer takes to wash them. Often takes two cycles to actually get the clothes dry - especially towels and jeans. Yes I am cleaning the vent after each load.

loving it after a month!

Joyspiano 3/19/2020

Anti static and wrinkle release are awesome! Way less static and wrinkles than with my old dryer, with no dryer sheets. Extended tumble is great for the times I can't get to the dryer for a while. As a mom and wife of tall people, I often hang things to air dry (to avoid shrinking) which leaves them wrinkled and stiff. Once dry I now throw them in on the instant refresh setting and the stiffness and lots of wrinkles are gone! LOVE it.

This machine dries so fast. Maybe in part because the washer does such a great job spinning. I love the lint trap. It really does stop the lint from falling down into the base of the machine. I also LOVE the light in the inside. You'll never miss that sock in the back again!
