“A beautiful and well-equipped dryer for the entire family”
By simply changing the color and lifting the front door’s position a few inches higher, Electrolux managed to create a beautiful looking dryer that impresses from the first encounter. Even more, when we dig through specifications, the Electrolux EIMED60LT seems to have everything; from the best energy efficiency to IQ-Touch controls and Perfect Steam Technology.
This dryer can be easily stacked with the matching washer, or simply placed on its pedestal (optional on purchase) in order to allow the user a perfect space optimization and easy access. It can also be easily placed under a counter or hidden in a closet, but the beautiful black finish and overall design doesn’t require such drastic measures.
The Electrolux EIMED60LT dryer is equipped with a series of sensors and advanced features that allow it to care for a variety of fabrics from extra sensitive fabrics to big items like beddings and comforters. All these are combined in a reliable appliance that can be found for about $1,200 to $900 according to the store and area.
Design & Physical Specifications
The dryer implements the same classic rectangular shape, but also comes with a few new elements of design like the black finishing and the slightly lifted front door. The interior is equipped with a stainless steel drum to ensure fabric protection and resistance to chipping and rust for a long period of time.
The control panel is positioned on the superior part of the frontal side and promotes beautiful silver buttons that look amazing on the black finishing. To make sure the dryer is in accordance with the matching washer, Electrolux kept the same three areas distribution of the controls. Thus the left area is covered with two of the most important features the dryer implements, the middle area is occupied by the dial and the right area is occupied with a small display that shows a few important information and other silver buttons that help customize the selected program.
This dryer’s physical dimensions are: 38 x 27 x 31.5 inches (Height x Width x Depth). These dimensions are considered without the pedestal (15 inches) and with the door closed.
Performance & Features
The number of cycles and options available is higher than with an average dryer and this leads to the best flexibility in choosing the optimum program and combination of options. This way, the Electrolux EIMED60LT dryer is capable to offer one of the best drying performances.

The engine is electrical and the dryer must be connected to a vent in order to function properly. This makes it a bit more difficult to install in an apartment.
