Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Capacity!

Submitted by MacZ - 7/16/2020

Love the capacity and rather lower noise level when on. "Sending" how wet stuff still is works okay. For bedding to come out really dry, we put it in "towel" mode. One criticism would be the end of cycle alarm is not loud enough (at least for us having the laundry room not very close to where we hang out).

Submitted by saladd - 7/14/2020

This dryer is very large and accommodates many towels, sheets, and other linens at 1 time . It has many settings. The settings can be customized to just about anything you would dream of doing. It is energy efficient. It is extremely quiet. A very large window in the door so that you can see what is going on with your clothes. I cannot imagine what more you would want in a dryer.

Submitted by Shaelynn - 7/12/2020

This is the only model we could find that had the air lock feature to prevent mold and smell. It's our first front loading washer and I am loving how large capacity it is to wash our comforters! No more laundromats for me! The ability to use the app and be notified when the wash is finished is a huge plus!

So Far, So Good

Submitted by anissad - 7/8/2020

I've only had these machines for a couple weeks. I love them. They wash extremely well as well as dry fast even within the washer, but I do use the dryer. I have yet to completely understand the vent system and how long that's suppose to run, but I haven't detected any smell of mold using the washer and didn't use the vent setting. So far its great!

Works great, and the best lint catching system!

Submitted by DarrenInMebane - 7/7/2020

I have mixed loads of towels, sheets, and clothes in this dryer so far many times, everything comes out dry without any additional cycles. The biggest feature I really like on this model is the lint screen. While it isn't really a "one handed" cleanup, as you need to unsnap it to open it, it catches ALL of the lint. The only real downfall of the much older design I had before was the inability to easily clean the lint trap, it took a special vacuum nozzle to reach down and get most of the remainder out. This absolutely catches ALL of it, really happy about that.
