This device works no better than leaving damp washing on a chair. I think I'd do better leaving the washing machine on a longer spin cycle. My previous cheapo dryer did a better job albeit with the result of a damp laundry.
Excellent money's worth
I purchased the dryer for winter as we have 3 boys. We needed it for the larger drying items like linen and towels. Dries perfectly, they come out soft, not wrinkled etc. Easy to set up, use and understand the manual.

Great product great price
Good price easy to use looks good great dryer. Electrolux are a good brand clothes come out dry not over heated not damp. no need for ironing which I love!
Purchased in February 2020 at Appliance online for A$520.00.
Easy to use and efficient. It is quite economical. Dries clothes effectively, has a lint catcher, comes with wall mounting brackets to mount and stickers reverse so you can use either way up. Runs quietly. Has an iron dry option to help avoid creases. Has a good delicate cycle for delicate materials.

Does the job well
I purchased this Dryer after my 4 year old Fisher and Paykel dryer died for the fourth time.
In the month or so that I have had this, I have found that it is superior to the F&P dryer in terms of drying time, less tangles in the clothing and noise levels when operating.
The "Bedding" program works very well for Sheets, Duvet covers etc - it reverses more than the normal programs. I was even able to put Sheets/Duvet cover straight on the bed, no creases to iron out.
I've also found that the dryer isnt as Hot as the Fisher and Paykel. This is ...obviously going to be better on the clothes. I have even successfully dried jumpers (acrylic) on the Wool program and no shrinkage whatsoever. On drying times, a 7.5kg load, spun at 1400rpm will dry in my dryer (highest dryness setting) in around 1hr:30mins I did used to tumble line-dried items for 15mins in my old dryer, to drop creases before folding and putting away, this dryer doesnt quite heat up as much as the last one, so it's not great for that - a short, hot cycle would be a great addition to the dryer, as well as an internal light. Other than that, it's a very good, quiet dryer that does the job. At this stage, if my washer dies I will replace it for the matching Electrolux.
Questions & Answers
My new dryer does not dry. I have changed the water hardness setting but it is always cool no matter what program or how long i run it - is the cooling phase light always meant to be on ?
My Electrolux edc804bewa is brand new. For some reason the timer counts down in Only minutes not hours ie for cottons the timer says 1:43 but instead of the 1 meaning 1 hour it counts down only 1 min. Please help.
We purchased an Electrolux Condenser Dryer in mid February 2020. Before we plumbed the dryer we found that water collected in both the Water Container AND the Heat Exchanger and both containers had to be emptied after each cycle. We then had the dryer plumbed and the water container no longer collects water during the cycle but we are finding that the Heat Exchanger still does. Should this be happening as the User Manual makes no mention of having to empty the Heat Exchanger of water only cleaning/rinsing it when the “check Heat Exchanger” indicator flashes?
Not sure if this is what you mean but I had a Bosch condensor dryer and used both the plumbed in and water container collection options. In both cases the heat exchanger was always moist after a cycle (and it collected some wet lint.) It needed periodic rinsing as prompted. Which is normal I believe. :)
From research I believe that 'heat pump' condensor dryers with a self cleaning function, even if they are plumbed in, will still collect water in the collection container to send it through to clean the heat pump condensor/heat exchanger below (meaning you don't have to manually rinse the heat exchanger) They seem to recommend vacuuming the front of the heat exchanger and cleaning the filter that covers it instead, as the heat exchanger cannot be removed for rinsing like a normal condensor dryer.
The heat pump dryers operate differently to condensor dryers as they don't have an element (unless it is a hybrid.) Heat pumps are more like an Air Con unit and they don't heat up as much. Some say its better and some say its worse for drying clothes. Anyway .... :)
