This basic Electrolux washer cleans better than you'd think
This 870 dollar front load washing machine is one of Electrolux's most minimal models.
It only has five cleaning cycles, and three settings each for temperature, soil level, and spin...
It's white finish looks fine but I would like to see more contrast between it's light grey display panel and the rest of the washer.
Even so Electrolux at least kept a couple of highlights from it's higher end line up.
The circular digital display, and the delay start option, that let's you schedule your wash cycle to start anywhere from 30 minutes to 12 hours later.
It also opted for an integrated touchscreen over buttons and dials, which gives it a slightly more modern look.
Inside the detergent drawer, you will also find compartments for liquid bleach and fabric softer.
The drum inside has a 4.3 cubic foot capacity.
The biggest selling point though is its cleaning performance.
This washer did a great job removing stains.
Just keep in mind that you can get Electrolux's even better performing 400 series washer for just 20 bucks more.
Having said that, this is a great washer if you want something simple that gets the job done.
