Do not get in that trap !!Dryer that does not dry
Condenser /Dryer not actually drying clothes . Very disappointed and disgusted dealing with Goodguys and Electrolux . I would not recommend at all .Worst thing I have ever bought in my life , it is a rip off and now we wonder why the salesman from Goodguys changed our mind and sold us that one . learnt my lesson .
What a lot of non sense , even the technician attending was like mate not these ones , the are not good at all . A product that should be removed from the market completed . And Stupid process call them 5 times for the same thing , they have to send a technician for assessment .. same issue is assessed I am not sure how many times ........ Absolute joke !!
Please do not buy this you will regret it I would not wish it upon anyone

This is the worst dryer I have ever had
This dryer is impossible. Not only can I never set it to maximum heat for some unknown reason. Everything comes out slightly damp and can smell. You then have to dry the clothes twice clearly wasting energy. I have had the dryer 2 months and I would like a full refund and the item collected. Worthy of the tip in all honesty

Do not buy this. It is NOT a dryer.
What an absolute joke. 2 years now with this overpriced heap of rubbish and my clothes still NEVER come out dry after the max 2 1/2hrs (even though this is what Electrolux have said - it will be slightly damp but you shake the clothes and let the air dry for the last 10 or so minutes for full effect...like, what’s the point?!).
I’ve listened, researched and changed settings and still - worst machine I’ve ever bought. Do not buy this. I’ve given up and am looking for a cheap power-chewing, don’t-spare-the-horses DRYER.

Not fit for purpose
Very disappointed with this condenser dryer. Sure, it is quiet and doesn't fill the house with moisture ... but it doesn't actually dry clothes.
A load of less than 50% capacity after 2 x EXTRA DRY sessions comes out damp.
That's almost 4 hours of drying time and the clothes are still not dry.
My previous dryer was just a cheap smaller capacity Westinghouse dryer. It would dry a load in 90 minutes and lasted for many years.
Not sure why this much more expensive condenser dryer cannot do same.

Purchased dryer 2.5 years ago. Stopped working. Called Electolux for service. Hopeless. Technician didn't have required part ($30 drive belt). Said we would have to wait a week to get it from Adelaide. Then longer to install. Yep, just do without your relatively new dryer for 7-10 days while we get our act together. It isn't the first time we have had problems with Electrolux service. Wont give them another chance.

Surprised by all these bad reviews! We’ve had ours for 3+ years and never had an issue. Dries clothes and removes lint. I am wondering if others are taking their cloths out before the dryer is completely finished. It does beep as if it’s finished toward the end of the cycle, then intermittently cycle cool air to remove condensation build up from the hot cycle.

White box that spins clothes
As a dryer, it does one thing well.
As for drying, well it forgets that part.
Had for 26 months maybe had a couple of surprise dry loads that's it.

I purchased this dryer as it matched my washing machine. If only I had read reviews beforehand. No matter what setting I put it on my clothes do not come out completely dry!
And when you put your own time setting on the sensors still override it that they are dry when clearly they are not. Do not buy this dryer. What comeback do we have Electrolux as it’s an expensive dryer that does not do its job
The most frustrating drying machine ever
Having cleaned the filters and condensers many times following the instructions your clothes come out wet or damp. This machine with all its fancy buttons and gadgets requires to operate under one simple command HOT. If anybody knows how to find the combination that allows this happen I'd be very grateful

if it does not dry it's not a dryer
I have had the dryer for aprox two months. The first load I put thru came out damp so read the manual changed settings for the sensor, still did not dry. Separated cloths into similiar materials still damp. It just does not dry, so how can it be called a dryer. How did this get thru product development. When winter comes I will have to buy another dryer. not happy Jan.

Useless - would never buy another one
Have tried dryer with all different types of clothes and towels on all different cycles. Clothes always come out damp, even when you redo again and again. If you leave clothes in dryer you come home from work with clothes smelling mouldy and needing to be rewarded. Only had dryer for just over 2 years. Waste of time and money. One star is generous!
Not built to last, extended warranty a must
Worked well when it actually worked. Luckily we had extended warranty though, you will definitely need this. Ours only lasted 4 years before it died completely and was replaced. Extended warranty saved us the cost of 2 service calls with repairs plus the complete replacement, we would have been out of pocket around $1,500 otherwise.
Electrolux after care service is terrible as well. This brand and model is not recommended at all
Rubbish walk away
I brought this dryer as the sales person recommended it for the size and the fact I wouldn’t have damp walls or floors. It’s pretty good on power because frankly my clothes, towels, linens aren’t dry! I mean 1 hour 59 minutes for a small load in extra dry cotton, the longest and hottest setting apart from a duvet setting, is crazy that nothing is dry. Now how do
You make it dry! You can’t just reset the timer, because the sensors say it’s dry. I know dogs are saying it feels damp and take it out, wait a bit and it’s definitely dry. I can guaran...

Not the greatest Dryer but a lot more energy efficient than our old conventional dryer
Was sold a dryer that could solve all of the worlds problems and dry my clothes better than the old element dryer we used to have.
I should have known better. What every one needs to know is a condenser dryer will dry your clothes to about 98% and use next to nothing in energy consumption. as apposed to the old element dryers that were a fire risk and cooked the clothes.
Slight learning curve but now i like the machine.

Questions & Answers
Where can I purchase the belting?
We unplugged the Dryer to paint our laundry. A week later we plugged it back in and it came up with and error code: EH0. This means interrupted power supply so we tried a different power point. Still got the same error code. Can someone tell me whether we should order a new part? It is just out of it's 2 year warranty - bought in July 2016 :(
We have a EDC2086GDW dryer that was a warranty replacement when our previous model faulted when in extended warranty, now this unit has faulted with EH0 we have tried several times powering the unit down but to no avail.I am affraid my confidence in electrolux products has sunk to a very low level.It took nearly four months for the original replacement to arrive, now another failure. Any help?
Unfortunately the EHO error spelled the end for our machine. Luckily, replaced under extended warranty, upgraded to a Bosch this time as Electrolux only seem to make products that barely last beyond manufacturers warranty
