Electrolux EIMED55IIW

Companion Washer - EIFLS55IIW Review




Dryer Pros and Cons
Drying Quickly refreshes lightly soiled clothes without washing. Generates steam during the refresh cycle to reduce wrinkles, remove odors, and/or sanitize clothes. Nearly eliminates the need to iron.
Cycles Number of cycles and options is 288% higher than average and ranks in the top 1% of new dryers for BEST program selection and flexibility. More cycles helps you tailor drying to your family's 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 EIMED55IIW 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 EIMED55IIW 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
Steam Drying - If you're in a hurry and just need to get the wrinkles out of your clothes, or freshen-up lightly soiled garments, the steam generation cycle on this model will prove to be very handy.
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 50% of new clothes dryers for BETTER overall price. You should also consider the Electrolux EIMED55IIW 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 EIMED55IIW 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 EIMED55IIW 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
No Delay Start - Can't be programmed to start at a later time. About 25% of new dryers have the convenience of drying the laundry at a time that best fits your schedule. More important for washers than dryers.  
Custom
Cycle
Custom Cycle - Allows you to program a custom cycle with specific options and temperature settings that you use the most. No need to select everything over and over, just push the My Cycle button.
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.
