If your laundry is constantly attacked by terrible stains, you’ll need the best washing machine (and good detergent) to bring them down. For that, we’d recommend the Electrolux EFLS627UTT 27-inch Front Load Washer. It features three separate cycles to specifically attack stains in any stage of its life, whether it just happened now or an hour ago. If you’re not sold by this machine, you might also want to read our review of the Electrolux SHINE washing machine concept.

Why We Like It – Electrolux EFLS627UTT

The Electrolux EFLS627UTT takes it to the extreme when fighting stains, featuring two options specifically targeting stains in their various forms; otherwise known as SmartBoost.

  • SmartBoost feature is tough on stains
  • Energy efficient enough to be Energy Star certified
  • Adaptive dispenser accepts PODs
  • Expensive
  • One year limited warranty


What the Electrolux EFLS627UTT does against stains is nothing short of a miracle. Not one, but two options are available—among 9 wash cycles—to tackle stains in various stages. Got a tough stain? Use Perfect Steam cycle, where steam rises from the bottom to lift the stain from the very fibers. StainSoak skips pre-treat and mixes everything ahead of time, while giving you the option to choose the type of stain.

This makes up the SmartBoost system, and that’s in addition to LuxCare Wash system, which lets you control the temperature, load sensing, and various washing actions. The Giantex Portable Mini Compact Twin Tub and Panda Compact Washing Machine are good for a pinch, but for an entire home? Not so much.


The Electrolux EFLS627UTT Washing Machine is what you’d expect modern washing machines to look like. Its control type uses capacitive touch controls, with an LED display on the knob to tell you when the wash cycle is complete. That’s useful when you run a clean washer cycle. Since this washer type is a front-loader, the washer door is located at the front, not at the top like the Super Deal Portable Twin Tub. All the washing is done inside a stainless steel drum, within a dimension of 27 x 38 x 31.5 inches. For something compact, check out the Super Deal Portable Twin Tub.


The top-loading Electrolux Laundry Washer EFLS627UTT was tough to place on the scale of value. For starters, Electrolux washers high-performing washers to begin with, and this one in particular really works against stains. In fact, it is some of the best stain removal we’ve seen. But it’s awfully expensive. At the same time, it accepts PODs, which already use a small amount of detergent. You’ll save on water detergent and fabric softener over time. Its one year limited warranty isn’t the greatest, however; a year after purchase is when devices start to act up. Still, the Electrolux EFLS627UTT’s performance is so excellent, it still has great value.

Electrolux EFLS627UTT Wrap Up

The Electrolux EFLS627UTT Front-Load Washer is one high-performing work horse, more than ready to take on the week’s worth of clothing you’ll no doubt toss in—especially on stains. It’ll save you on your energy bill over time with its Energy Star certification, and even get the most out of detergent PODs.
