About - Electrolux IQ Touch EIFLW50L[IW]

The Electrolux IQ Touch EIFLW50L[IW] is part of the washing machine test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, front-loading washing machine models like the IQ Touch EIFLW50L[IW] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Washing performance:
This reflects the degree of color change to swatches of fabric that were included in an 8-pound and maximum capacity test load of mixed cotton items using the machines' most aggressive normal cycle. (We do not use special cycle or option buttons.)

Energy efficiency:
This score is based on the energy needed to heat the water for 8-pound and maximum loads using a warm wash and cold rinse. We consider both gas and electric water heaters, and include electricity needed to run the washer and energy needed for drying. Washers that extract more water are scored higher.

Water efficiency:
This score denotes how much water it took to wash our 8-pound load and each machine's maximum load. On models that didn't set the fill level automatically, we used the lowest fill setting that sufficed for the 8-pound load. We then calculated water used per pound of clothing.

Comment:
This is great washer, as long as you find it on sale somewhere. I found a return at Lowes and paid around $500. Be sure to look for clearance pedestals as well! I would also have to recommend getting an ESP - saved our butts. The Tri-Ac board (Error Code E53) went out just after the manufacturer warranty expired and god knows what this would have cost out of pocket - SquareTrade rocks! Overall we are very happy with this washer. It handles siox pairs of jeans without a hiccup and really has way too many settings for me. I do like having extra rinse and spin cycles but really do not use much else. This is one quite machine as well, much quiter than our old Maytag Neptune. But this is not a perfect machine though, you need to leave the door open for the drum area to dry out, water tends to dribble down onto the chrome trim surround and sometimes the soap dispenser does not drain out after use(a minor annyance).
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
We have a washer and matching gas dryer. Cleans ok but overpriced. Push button main control weak and if you push it in to make it flush it will not come back out easily. Door design stupid pressure closure.

Comment:
I have the Electrolux washer and dryer on pedestals. They look terrific; the washer has a 1200 spin speed which gets clothes much dryer than my old washer and so reduces time spent in dryer; I like to sanitise my bedding and this works well; all washes come out looking pristine; i like to add bleach to whites and this works well; the programs are easy to set; the machine runs quietly; get one - you will be delighted!
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
