Electrolux EWMED70JIW

Companion Washer - EWFLS70JIW 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 532% 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 EWMED70JIW 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 21% higher than average and ranks in the bottom 20% of new dryers for FAIR affordability. Based on the MSRP, each cubic foot costs about $31 more than the average new dryer.  

Electrolux EWMED70JIW Dryer

Performance Ratings
7 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 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 - 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 $1449 - The Electrolux EWMED70JIW Manufacturer's Price (MSRP) is 32% higher than average and ranks in the bottom 15% of new dryers for FAIR overall price. Be sure to also consider the 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.
Reversible Door - The Electrolux EWMED70JIW 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 - 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.
No Filter Indicator - There is no visual reminder on the EWMED70JIW 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.  
No Dryer Rack - Does not include a dryer rack that allows tumble-free drying for items such as tennis shoes, ball caps, sweaters, or stuffed animals. Dryer racks can usually be purchased separately.  
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 - 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 - 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.
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.  
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.
