Electrolux Compact Washer & Dryer- $1598 (Ventless dryer- great for condo's)
- Deal Link:
Electrolux already has some aggressive pricing in Canada, so after the 20% discount, this is a great price for what's meant to be a premium product, I hope we'll be happy. We don't have room for full-sized machines, and besides from my reading vented dryers waste a ton of energy: these unvented ones are slower to dry, and can heat up your room a bit, but don't suck and blast your heated (or worse, air-conditioned) air out your house like an energy vampire. Plus we save by not having to have a leaky hole drilled into our wall. In energy-conscious Europe, unvented dryers are standard, in fact vented ones are banned in Norway.
The Electrolux dryer is not on Lowe's website, but they can get it, or at least they did for me, and discounted it under the sale. The washer came to $879 after the discount, and the dryer to $719, so $1598. With $75 delivery, $290 5-year extended warrenty (provided by Lowes, supposed to be solid) and taxes, our total was $2218.61
Here's a good article about this pairing, comparing it to the Bosch units, and giving it the edge.
