Electrolux Laundry

I actually like these units, but for different reasons. Sure, it has decent specs. Electrolux is the largest units in the industry at 4.7 cubic feet or double a top load. It also does not use much water or electricity and has some pretty robust controls.

One of their main features is the 18 minute wash and 18 minute dry cycles, but this is only for very small loads.

Their best feature by far is the venting profile...or lack thereof. The vent is recessed from the back of the unit, so you now only need 31" inches of depth. On other units, the depth is 31 plus 4 inches in depth for the vent pipe.

Great space saver for stacks and closets.

    Are they belt driven or direct drive...and what are your thoughts on this subject?

  2. Direct drive...I liked the Maytag belted machines back in the day...easy to fix

    Now most if not all are direct drive
