Electrolux EIED55HIW

Companion Washer - EIFLW55HIW Review




Dryer Pros and Cons
Drying Offers the capability to sanitize items that can't be easily washed such as pillows and stuffed animals. Reduces common household bacteria and allergens using a higher heat setting.
Cycles Number of available cycles and options is about average for a new clothes dryer. Generally the more cycles and options you have to choose from, the better the chance of meeting your clothing care needs.  
Drum Designed with a stainless steel dryer drum that is more durable than porcelain or plastic. Stainless steel resists odor absorption or discoloration and reduces the amount of static build-up in your clothing.
Capacity The EIED55HIW capacity is 12% higher than average and ranks in the top 5% of new larger size dryers. Holds about 0.8 cu ft more laundry than the average new dryer. Laundry can be done less often.
Sensor Uses a moisture sensor to measure the water content of clothing as it tumbles, and automatically shuts-off the cycle when dry. Prevents clothing from being damaged by overheating and saves on energy costs.
Price Price per cubic foot is 9% lower than average and ranks in the top 35% of new clothes dryers for BETTER affordability. Based on the MSRP, each cubic foot costs about $13 less than the average new dryer.


Electrolux EIED55HIW Dryer


Performance Ratings
Temp
Settings
5 Settings - Provides an ample number of temperature settings to select from. It's important to match the heat level to the type of fabric being laundered; helps prevent damage and alleviate wrinkles.
Steam
Cycle
No Steam Cycles - Does not have the ability to generate steam and refresh lightly worn garments, or remove the wrinkles from clothing. About 60% of new dryers on the market now include a steam cycle.  
Sanitize
Cycle
Sanitize Cycle - Sanitizes items with a high-temp cycle that kills many forms of household bacteria or allergens. Especially useful for stuffed animals, pillows, and other non-washable items. NSF Certified.
MSRP $1099 - Manufacturer's Price (MSRP) is 1% lower than average and ranks in the top 45% of new clothes dryers for BETTER overall price. You should also consider the Electrolux EIED55HIW cost per cubic foot.
Warranty Electrolux 1-Year Parts, 2-Year Labor - A little better warranty than the industry standard of one year parts and labor. You'll find longer warranties on washing machines, but dryers are usually 1 and 1.


Convenience Ratings
Stackable Stackable - Like most new front-load matching dryers, this model can be stacked vertically with a washer to save space, and allows one unit to be accessed comfortably at shoulder level. Great for small rooms.
Reverse
Door
Reversible Door - The Electrolux EIED55HIW dryer door is flexible and can be switched to open from right-to-left (with a washer sitting on the right side), or left-to-right (with a washer sitting on the left side).
Drum
Light
Drum Light - Includes an internal light that automatically switches on when the dryer door opens. Almost all new dryers come equipped with this nearly essential feature so you can see to unload your clothes.
Filter
Indicator
No Filter Indicator - There is no visual reminder on the EIED55HIW to change the lint filter. Most of us are remiss in this area and a clogged filter light is very helpful. Available on about 50% of new dryers.  
Dryer
Rack
Dryer Rack Included - Dryer racks allow you to dry items that shouldn't be tumbled such as shoes, ball caps, sweaters, and stuffed animals. Simply place the rack inside the dryer for tumble-free drying.
Venting Must Be Vented - Over 95% of new dryer models must be vented to the outside of your home with a duct running from your dryer. A few ventless models are available if an outside duct is not practical.  


Control Ratings
Display LCD Display - Employs a Liquid Crystal Display that provides visual information about remaining cycle time, program status, selectable options, and other clothes dryer functions. Convenient technology.
Controls Rotary-Electronic - Designed with a modern digital control system that makes cycle or option selection easy and convenient. About 85% of new dryers are now fitted with highly-functional electronic controls.
Delay
Start
Delay Start - Fit the laundry around your busy schedule by programming the dryer to start at a later, more convenient time. Allows you to plan around noise concerns or home departure / arrival times.
Custom
Cycle
No Custom Cycle - Like most new dryers, you cannot program a custom cycle with temperature settings and options that you use the most. Convenient capability that's only available on about 30% of new dryers.  
Phone
Diagnosis
No Phone Diagnostics - You can't connect to the manufacturer's repair center and have dryer problems directly diagnosed over the phone. About 20% of new dryers have some type of phone connectivity.  
Smart
Grid
Not Smart-Grid Capable - Cannot be hooked into the present or future local utility smart-grid and programmed to operate when utility rates are lower. Most new dryers are still not smart-grid capable.
