We found that the different cycles of the had performance ranging from poor to good, but without ever excelling. It did a decent job of spinning out excess water. The two greatest aspects that Electrolux endowed this machine are great controls and good efficiency. However, straying from its core mechanic of cleaning leaves us reluctant to recommend this washer. It may be a good buy if it can be found for under its MSRP of $1,284.29.
