The Good Electrolux's front-load EFLW417SIW washer scored high on stain removal and its display is well-designed.

The Bad It wasn't gentle on clothes and has fewer cycles than its competition.

The Bottom Line The Electrolux EFLW417SIW is an excellent, top-performing washing machine that's easy to recommend.

ectrolux's $899 EFLW417SIW straddles the line between a budget and a luxury front-load washer. You won't find dozens of cleaning cycles, a related app or other extras. But it's an attractive appliance with a dark gray touchscreen panel and a unique round digital display. It tied the pricier Electrolux EFLS617S in stain removal, too, making it one of the best-performing washing machines we've ever tested. Definitely consider the EFLW417SIW if you're in the market for an affordable, stackable midrange washing machine.
