We suffered with a horrible LG for too many years (about 10) before taking the recommendation of our local appliance people to try the Electrolux.
Our units are closet-sized and are located on the second floor of our home. They are surprisingly roomy, and don’t ball up as long as you include a towel in with the sheets. The dryer vents out the front, which we worried about, but we absolutely love it. In the winter it adds a small, pleasant amount of heat and moisture to our hallway (You have to keep the closet door open of course), and in the summer, it honestly has never been an issue. We have a drying rack, but just use it when we feel like it and to save energy, the dryer venting is fine even on hot days, seems weird, but it works really well.
The fab appliance store is Korvin Appliances, in Keene NH, and it was the first time I called them. I had done my homework online and didn’t even have Electrolux on my radar, but they suggested I check out Electrolux and call them back! No pressure, a great suggestion, trust, gives you faith that the world is still ok….

PS- For the pair I saved something like $1,500 vs. the other machines I was considering.
