About - Electrolux Perfect Steam EWMED65H[IW]

The Electrolux Perfect Steam EWMED65H[IW] is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer models like the Perfect Steam EWMED65H[IW] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Drying performance:
This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: A 12-lb. load, predominantly cotton, representing a family's large weekly load; an 8-lb. load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a 3-lb. load of synthetic delicates, women's pajamas, nightgowns, bras and underwear.

Capacity:
Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 8.0 cu. ft.

Convenience:
For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.

Comment:
We have had this dryer for six months and so far the motor has had to be replaced once, the heating element is on its third repair, and the clothes still are not getting dry. This is the worst dryer I have ever owned and most certainly makes me regret my decision to purchase Electrolux appliances across the board. Absolutely a pile of trash and not worth anything at this point. Very, very disappointed.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I run 15 loads per week through this dryer. It vents straight out of the wall which will always provide the best drying. <br />The cycles are long, because it doesn't cook the clothes. I generally use three cycles, delicate, normal and bulky for sheets and bedding and towels. Delicate works very well for not leaving wrinkles.<br />Fast dry is not for really getting things bone dry, but removing enough moisture to finish a hang dry. The dryer is exceptionally quiet and I can't hear it. <br />I rarely use the steam cycle.<br />I am a fairly neglectful laundress, meaning I tend to walk away and do other chores. If I'm paying attention, there are no wrinkles. Best dryer I've had. In my experience people overload their equipment then expect miracles. I've had crummy experiences with several brands and this is my first front loader.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

We have only owned this dryer three months and have already had to have it repaired. It left clothes damp. It is not worth th price. We had another brand before and should have gotten another one. Don't waist your money.
