Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Great look

Submitted by Sanblise - Im building an apartment in my basement. Im not a very tight budget. I found these Electrolux washer dryer and refrigerator at a Bargain Center. I decided to buy them even though they were seconds. Electrolux came through and fix the front of the washer as it was crushed in and wouldnt close. The companies did buy their product and fixed the washer by replacing the front door.

Hassle free laundry with all the features

Submitted by Seattlesal - Bought washer and dryers together after the old one was dying. Amazing technology in Ekectrolux products that beat the fancy european products. The best part i like are the quick select options for simple fast washing and drying but when you need wrinkle guard and steam like fancy features then its on you fingertips with intuitive interface.

Easy to Use

Submitted by Kay3 - We purchased the washer/dryer set when our previous set was going out.. I like the ease of use. The size is nice. The only negative I have is the washer door is very hard to close. Not sure if this is an installment issue because the installation crew did have to reverse the direction it closes. But other than that so far no problems. I cant believe you have to use so much bleach to clean the deep clean the washer...its a little strange 8 times as much as my previous one. All in all I have been happy with the set.

Submitted by Bloomingirl - I couldnt be more pleased. Hands down this is the best set that Ive ever owned in 35 years. The dryer is cool and quiet and the clothes are almost wrinkle free - even after sitting a bit. Not only that I think the chrome and glass door are pretty - at least for a dryer :

Submitted by MicahMarida - I bought this washer and its matching dryer about a month 1/2 ago and I am SO pleased with my purchase The #1 thing I wanted in a unit was capacity and this machine can was my king-size winter comforter with no problem.

Cleans well and is energy efficient

Submitted by Cori - I bought this one after my washer died. The independent appliance repairman suggested I might want to get a new one as it would be more cost efficient than repairing my old one. After I made this choice but before I bought it I called him and asked his opinion of the Electrolux appliances. He said Buy it they are well made. I agree.
