Sadly, our washer of 28 years broke. So, after doing a lot of research, we chose this Electrolux model. We are happy with it but it does take some getting used to. It uses way less water, so don't even think about your clothes floating in water. It also is very difficult to get hot water for a wash. Even when set on hot, the water is so limited that much of the cold water sitting in the lines goes in first.. I have added hot water to it when I wanted it really hot. There is a hot setting with steam but I believe that is overkill. You have to use less detergent or it will never get it all out. This model comes with an extra rinse, which I use. It is relatively quiet, it does make some noise when it is spinning. If anyone complains about it being really loud, I would suspect that it is not balanced properly. We do keep our door open and I do wipe around the seal with a paper towel to prevent any mold issues. I have not had any problem with mold. There is a wash cycle to wash the washer, I have not used it yet. One thing I do not like is that there is no mechanism to collect lint or pet hairs. My old washer used to collect a lot of lint in the center, which could be and needed to be cleaned after every load. So, i am seeing an increased amount of lint still remaining on the clothes. i am worried that down the road, it will end up blocking a drain from the washer. We have tried many cycles and the one we like the best is the normal cycle, normal soil, hot, and low spin, extra rinse. This is a 52 minute cycle. It has a fast cycle, have not used it.. So, I am learning to embrace this washer, but very different from the old way of washing clothes. I would have liked to see more hot water and a lint trap. We have only had it for 7 weeks. Hopefully, we can get 10-12 years out of it. I know not to expect 28 years like my old one !

We bought this a month ago. The variety of options are great! Love the quick wash cycle. We use cloth diaper, and the machine does great with them. The Sanitizer feature does wonders for heavily soiled items. Big enough to wash comforters!

We had a similar model before but sold to with our home. The reversible door option (only one we could find) was the main reason for buying this machine and so far it been wonderful.

We love that features and size of this unit. We replaced a 12 year old machine and this is the only unit that came close to the size of our old ones. Plus we gained capacity from the previous machine, shows how engineering improvements can happen without taking up more overall space!!

I like the look of the washer and the many washing options. Would be better if the dispenser totally drained after a wash. Would like a switch, as the dryer has, to turn on the drum light. would like a little more flexibility in choosing washing options

I bought my washer 4 months ago. I have a bath towel at my back door for soiled shoes and dog paws, my dog also eats his daily apple and carrot on this towel as well as an occasional beef marrow bone. Never could get the stains out after trying everything from bleach to soaking for hours, now it totally comes clean!

So far so good; hoping for a solid 10 years!

My wife and I have been pretty happy with this machine. We bought it as a replacement for an exploding washer that frankly didn't wash well and had been repaired five times in six years. I'm hopeful that Electrolux's has a better business models and builds a better quality washer. But so far, this machine washes our clothes better than my previous machine. The only thing this machine needs to do is clean well and last at least 10 years. Everything else is icing on the cake. This machine, though, has nice features. The added soaks and rinses for heavily soiled clothes is nice. Most importantly, my clothes comes out clean, and the machine treats all of washables with care.

Bought about a month ago to replace a failing machine of 12 years. Love our new Electrolux! This machine has more than twice the capacity and wash two to three times as much in one load and the clothes come out much cleaner much fluffier and smell terrific. I could ask nothing more from a washing machine.
