Pros & Cons
The Electrolux 4.2 cu. ft. Front Load Steam Washer (IQ-Touch Control Model in Island White and Mediterranean Blue) is a very quiet machine with 11 wash cycles including Sanitize and Perfect Steam options. Boasting of a 4.2 cu. ft. stainless steel drum, this roomy washer not only sanitizes dirty socks but also handles huge king comforters. Most of the cycles finish their rotations within half an hour and the clothes come out spotless. It also has a 18 minutes fast wash cycle. Favorite wash settings can be personalized and customized and are available at the touch of a button.
This Electrolux Front Load washer is Eco-Friendly and is 75% more energy efficient. Customers have seen a significant reduction to their water bills, as this product uses less water for its work. It features a Perfect Balance System to reduce the vibration and to keep oversize wash loads balanced for smooth and quiet operation. It is perfect for installation upstairs -- even near bedrooms.
But many are on the fence when it comes to the durability of the product. While some are happy with the washer, others have encountered some technical problems. Few recommend getting the extended warranty to safeguard against these issues. Reviewers also feel that the washer is overpriced.
Overall, the Electrolux EIFLS55I Front Load Steam Washer is a high-end, easy to use, washer that offers a wide range of wash cycles and customization features. It is fairly efficient and provides a good washing and spinning performance.
