Introduction

The Electrolux EWMED70JIW could be described as one of the top illusionists of the laundry appliance world. This machine—along with its matching washer, the EWFLS70JIW—is a challenge to use, but arguably worth the time needed to master it. It looks like a regular stackable dryer, unimposing with its white enamel finish and extensive list of eleven cycles. Upon further inspection, though, you'll discover that this machine has a full second list of specialty cycles that aren't visible on the selector, a control panel that uses a digital display to indicate which setting is being used and what options are available, and a push-handle door that makes for a rounded and smooth exterior.

One could argue that the lack of explicit detail on the controls makes this a difficult appliance to use. They would be correct: this machine had one of the highest learning curves we've seen on a dryer. It's certainly not a machine for those who want to keep laundry simple; there are plenty of more straightforward models for those that don't like lots of complicated features. Those who do like bells and whistles are in for a treat, though, as this appliance is not only about discovery, but is backed by some impressive drying performance that's both effective and gentle on your clothing. The manufacturer has a recommended price of $1549, which makes it one of the more expensive models we've tested, but you're definitely getting your money's worth. Online prices are typically at $1299, too, which means a sale is easy to find.
