Electrolux Dryers - Electrolux Lifestyle Image

 

Electrolux is a well-recognized appliance name in many homes. They're known for great styling, features, and superb performance throughout every product that they manufacture. Their gas and electric dryers are no exception. You might already be sold on getting a great Electrolux front load washer, but what about their dryers? We'll dig into what Electrolux has to offer - and you can check out our dryer buyer's guide for more info on dryers in general as well!

Electrolux refreshed their laundry lineup in 2018 with some awesome features that we'll go over in detail before we compare the models in the dryer lineup.

What Do All Electrolux Dryers Come With?

What comes standard on Electrolux dryers? As of this writing there are three tiers of Electrolux dryers to match their washer lineup: the 427, 527, and 627 models. This brand stands out in that even their least expensive dryers come with a steam cycle option to release wrinkles and reduce static. Here's the full feature breakdown:

  • LuxCare Dry System: Electrolux's advanced sensor drying system has a precise sensor that detects humidity within the drum rather than relying on fabric touching the sensor to determine how dry the load is. Plus the LuxCare Lint Shield makes it easy to clean the lint trap without shedding lint on clothes in the drum or nearby. They're all Energy Star rated as well.

  • Perfect Steam: Add this option to any load to reduce wrinkles and static so you don't have to bring out the iron.

  • Platinum Star Limited Warranty: The Platinum Star warranty exclusively from Electrolux provides three years of coverage on parts and one year on labor.

  • Reversible Doors, 27" Platforms, 4-Way Venting: Their full size dryers offer 8.0 cubic feet of capacity in a standard 27" width. The dryer door is reversible to suit any installation configuration. Four way venting is standard on all Electrolux gas and electric dryers so even side venting can be done easily!

  • LED Interior Lighting: All dryers come with Luxury-Design premium LED lighting so you won't miss a stray sock!

  • Fast Dry Option: Electrolux's Fast Dry option for small loads starts at 20 minutes long in the 427 models and decreases from there.

  • Luxury-Quiet Sound System: No matter where your laundry room is located, you can run your Electrolux washer and dryer without disturbing the peace.

3. The Premium Model - Electrolux EFME627UIW - $1,099

Available in white at $1,099 or gray at $1,199 in electric and for $100 more in gas, Electrolux's top tier dryer model has a very cool feature that you won't find anywhere else: Predictive Dry. Most sensor dryers can't really tell you exactly when a cycle will end - You might end up checking it several times only to find that it's still running! With Predictive Dry, this dryer tests the contents of the load for 90 seconds in order to give you a much more accurate prediction for how long the cycle will take.

On top of that, the Fast Dry cycle is now just 15 minutes! This dryer comes with an Allergen cycle to help strip allergens out of your clothes and other fabrics, too. This model has a stainless steel drum while the other models come with painted steel drums.

 

Cycles & Options:

  • 9 Cycles: Timed Dry (30-75 minutes), Heavy Duty/Towels, Allergen, Normal, Fast Dry (18 minutes), Activewear, Mixed Load, Delicates, Instant Refresh™

  • 9 Options: 5 Temperatures (Including Sanitize), 5 Dryness Levels, Perfect Steam, Anti-Static, Eco, Wrinkle Release, Extended Tumble, Delay Start (Up to 12 hours), Control Lock

Features Comparison

  • Base Model: 7 cycles, 20-minute Fast Dry, steam options, available in white only, painted steel drum

  • Mid-Tier Model:  8 Cycles (Activewear), Sanitize dryness level option, Extended Tumble option, steam options plus anti-static, 18-minute Fast Dry, available in white or titanium, painted steel drum

Note that as of this writing Electrolux still offers a previous generation model, the EFDE317TIW, at around $849 in electric and $949 in gas. Since it comes with fewer cycles and options than the base 427 model, we recommend grabbing one of the 2018 model options - unless, perhaps, you find the 317 models at a steep discount.

We hope this overview of the Electrolux washer lineup helped you decide whether this brand is right for your needs. They have a lot of fans, and we think the hype is justified! Check out some of those customer reviews or head on out to the store and take a look at these models in person.
