This washer does an excellent job and the cloths come out cleaner than any other machine we have ever had.

Worked well for one year. Then began collecting mold, despite the fact that I left the door open, didn't use too much HE detergent and wiped down the gasket after every wash. Now clothes smell funny and don't even get clean. This machine is the worst purchase I've ever made. So sorry I spent so much money on such a piece of junk.

Very nice washer with excellent selection of wash cycles to choose from. You will find something for any type of laundry you have. Also a feature under specialty cycles for pet bed and blankets. Very large capacity that could easily take on a large comforter or blankets. We have a king size comforter that fits no problem. Make sure to wipe down the inner gasket after use to prevent any mold/mildew from forming. I'd also recommend keeping the door open when not in use to prevent any smells from occurring. No issues with my washer personally just have heard this from other people who have similar machines.
The only issue so far has been when it was installed, it could not complete the installation cycle. Water was not running into the machine. Electrolux was able to get a person out here to check it out the same day it was installed. However by the time the person arrived, the machine was already working without any fixes needed. The repair man did do a check on the machine and found nothing wrong so not sure why it wouldn't start up right away. Has been working great ever since.

Had machine more than two years with no problems to replace ancient top loader that was putting holes in clothes and tangling things around the agitator. It took me a year to get the courage (and save) to buy the set because of the price, but I am so glad I did it! This machine is very quiet (We can eat dinner next to it while running, all you hear is quiet sloshing), and it is so pretty we actually watched it like TV the first load. The cycle chime is gentle not a harsh buzzer. Pro tips: Use oxy with pre-wash cycle, set "add water" for big loads or armpit stains or lots of dirt. This is especially important for sports gear and teens who wear Axe products. Great for king comforters, dog beds and dust-mite allergies. There are so many cycles and combinations, I advise copying the chart in the manual for quick reference. Loads are fast, wrinkling is not a problem. I think W&D combined is about as long as my old set because the clothes are spun so much drier. Lingerie/delicates wash perfectly. Be aware the manual advises washing different weight clothes in same load. If you get an error (this happened my very first too-small load and never since then), set it to rinse & spin and that will take care of it. Be sure to fill the drum at least halfway or use the 15 min. wash. My kids can wash and dry a favorite shirt in half an hour if they want it for school that morning. I don't use liquid softener (dryer sheet person), but I have used the other dispensers with no problems. I don't remove the little cups, too fussy, I just fill them in place. I use very little liquid detergent, just to the min. fill line, if that. If you fill to max line, clothes could fade. Leave door open 24 hrs to let dry out. The machine tells you when to run a clean cycle. I don't have the pedestals because I fold on a counter above the set. I sit in a chair to take the laundry out because the machines are low and cavernous. I have also used the delay wash, very handy to start a load before bed but not have it sit wet for hours before you shift it to the dryer. For the dryer, beware that "dry" means TOTALLY dry, so cotton knits may shrink. Set at "almost dry" or "damp dry" with extended tumble, or use the "wool dry" specialty cycle for low-temp drying. Steam dryer to remove wrinkles is great! Buy them both! You won't regret it!

I can' t really give a factual review until I have owned this set a bit longer. See you in at least six months :) One thing I will recommend is making sure that Home Depot sends a copper version of the part needed to install the dryer for steam. They sent a plastic one that broke right while the installers were loading up and flooded the mudroom with water. We had to complete the installation ourselves after heading to Home Depot for a replacement part.
