The Electrolux Front Load Perfect Steam Electric Dryer with PredictiveDry and Instant Refresh is super spacious and capable of handling multiple blankets. Best of all, this model’s internal LED lighting can help you find that missing sock hidden in the dryer’s crevices.

Built for Bulky Items

The white (also available in gray) dryer has all of the top of the line features including steam with wrinkle release. This Electrolux model, when paired with the Electrolux Series 600 washer, will add style to even the dullest basement laundry rooms. Like most dryers, the Electrolux has a reversible door. Perhaps our favorite design feature is the basket style lint screen because it’s easy to clean and has double the space for collecting dryer debris.

The 8.0 cubic feet dryer measures 38 x 27 x 31.5 inches (H x W x D), so even though you can get an accessory to stack it on top of the washer, you’ll probably enjoy it more when placed side-by-side. The Electrolux’s companion washer is similar in size. If you’re looking for a more ergonomic setup, there’s an optional 15-inch pedestal available, so you can use the machine without bending over.

The Electrolux Front Load Perfect Steam 600 series dryer is loaded with easy to use settings. You can select cycles for Heavy/Towels, Allergen, Normal, Acitvewear, Mixed Load, 15-minute Fast Dry, Delicates, time Dry, and Instant Refresh. Once you select a cycle, you can customize the temperature (sanitize, high, normal, low, and air dry), the degree of dryness (max, high, normal, less, and damp), and drying time (auto, 75 min., 60 min., 45 min., and 30 min.). Additional options include Perfect Steam, Anti-Static, Eco, Wrinkle Release, Extended Tumble, Delay Time, and Control Lock. The options you select depending on which dry cycle you initially select.

On the far-right side of the panel, there are buttons for Start/Pause and Cancel. The LED display features a large digital timer (you can see remaining time quite a distance), and information about the machine’s sound, the lock, and if it’s an eco-friendly load. You don’t have to wonder if it’s time to clean the lint screen because when it is, the Clean Lint letters will illuminate on the display. Once you load items into the machine, press the power button to select your settings and press Start. The timer on the digital display informs you how long the cycle should take to complete.

Drying Dynamo

We used the Electrolux dryer over a few months, and we were pleased with the results. In general, cycles tended to run a tad longer than what it says on the digital display. But typically, it wasn’t longer than an additional ten minutes. You can also change the settings during a cycle by pressing the Start/Pause button, make the new selection, and then press Start.

The 15-minute dry cycle works great in a pinch on small loads.

During our testing, we did two loads of a variety of items, including delicates, tablecloths, and button-up shirts. We dried the clothes using Activewear, Normal temperature, and Normal dry and the auto time setting. After 35 minutes, the fairly heavy load came out dry. Additionally, we put a dry, wrinkled shirt in the drier and put on the Instant Refresh cycle with the Perfect Steam option, and while the top didn’t come out perfect, most of the wrinkles were out. We did appreciate the 15-minute dry cycle, which works great on small loads.

Warranty information

The Electrolux dryer comes with a one-year warranty that covers parts and labor. During the second year of ownership, Electrolux will pay to replace defective parts, but labor isn’t included after the first year.

Our take

The Electrolux Front Load Perfect Steam Dryer is a solid machine. This top-of-the-line model sports a load of features that are ideal for a busy family or household. However, if you just need a basic dryer, then this model is more than you want.

Is there a better alternative?

We were impressed with this dryer and is comparable to other high-end models available. If you’re interested in a solid model with fewer bells and whistles that costs less, check out the LG DLE7100W. The dryer is a bit smaller at 7.3 cubic feet and costs about half the price. When buying any dryer, you should make a list of must-have features. Check out our washer and drying buying guide to get an idea of what’s available.

How long will it last?

According to the experts, this Electrolux front loader dryer should last between 10 to 13 years.

Should you buy it?

The Electrolux Front Load Perfect Steam Dryer 600 Series is impressive and loaded with features that can go the distance. However, you will be paying for it—this dryer costs over $1,300. While that is expensive, remember, you likely won’t be replacing it for another ten years.

Tackle dirt and dust with DEEBOT T10 OMNI’s state-of-the-art A.I. technology
ECOVACS DEEBOT T10 OMNI docked in station product image

This content was produced in partnership with ECOVACS.
At this point, there's almost nothing A.I. can't do, at least in the digital realm. But when it comes to the physical world, and more practical applications, there are a few limitations remaining before the merger between modern robotics and advanced intelligence can really take off. We're close, but not quite there yet, which is unfortunate because it could profoundly change our lives. Imagine an A.I. system cleaning your whole home for you, for example. The floors, the walls, the drapes, your counters, you name it. Who wouldn't want that? Cleaning is a necessary yet tedious task that just gets worse the more you neglect it. ECOVACS is putting us one step closer to that reality with its latest one-for-all cleaning system, the DEEBOT T10 OMNI.

DEEBOT T10 OMNI comes with an all-in-one station that auto-empties the dustbin between runs, auto-cleans, and auto hot-air dries the mop, and offers a host of additional features to keep your hands almost completely free. The intuitive voice controls -- enabled by A.I. -- means you can issue commands simply and conveniently, or you can use the app. You can even use the app in combination with the device's Starlight front-facing camera to remotely monitor your home in real time, almost like a roamable security camera. You can see if Fido is being a good boy, or if he's chasing the vacuum again. Most importantly, A.I. is applied to a number of the system's functions to genuinely improve its power and capabilities. The T10 Omni leverages A.I., for instance, to prevent the spread of granular particles while it's vacuuming, so it's not just haphazardly spreading around a mess. It's all very impressive, but to understand just how impressive we should really do a deeper dive into what the DEEBOT T10 OMNI has to offer.

Ecovacs introduces three new robot vacuums for homes of all sizes
The new ECOVACS products on a kitchen floor.

Ecovacs is one of the biggest names in the world of robot vacuums, and it’s looking to continue that dominance in 2023 with three new product launches. Ranging in price from $650 to $1,300, the trio of DEEBOT robot vacuums is designed for smart homes of different sizes and different needs, ensuring there’s something for every family.

The Deebot T10 Omni is the most compelling of the three -- and it’s also the most expensive at $1,300. It brings a lot to the table, however, as it features the new Ozmo Turbo 2.0 mopping system with spinning brushes, the ability to take voice commands without a third-party product, and a docking station with auto-cleaning and auto-emptying capabilities. It’s designed for homes of all sizes, but it should be the most enticing for large families that see plenty of foot traffic (or paw traffic) through their house.

Cleaning is never fun. Wouldn't it be great if you could just forget about it completely, without your house degrading into a mess? Robot vacuums and mops are here to answer your prayers. Now's your chance to get one for an excellent bundle deal, particularly on the iRobot Roomba S9+ which can vacuum, included Braava Jet M6 robot mop, and the auto-empty dock. Normally $1,449, Best Buy has slashed $500 off the price, so it's yours for just $949 for a limited time. That's a great deal and it comes with everything you need to take back your freedom -- from cleaning anyway. Hurry, the deal won't last long. You can grab it below or keep reading to learn more about the Roomba S9+.

Why You Should Buy the Roomba S9+ Robot Vacuum and Robot Mop Bundle
In the Digital Trends Roomba S9+ review the reviewer, Terry Walsh, gave it top marks at 4.5 stars praising its superb cleaning performance, self-emptying dust bin features, multi-floor smart mapping technology, and precise object detection and navigation support. In fact, one of the only caveats he mentioned was that the price was a bit steep. This deal, thanks to Best Buy, brings the price down to a much more manageable and reasonable point, fixing probably one of the only issues with the S9+ that we encountered during the review. Because it's not the only robot vacuum provider out there, it also makes sense to consider a Roomba vs. Roborock comparison, to settle once and for all which is better.
