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

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. 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.

TMuse66 8/14/2020

Our 12 year old front loader washer died on us and we decided to upgrade to higher capacity so we bought the matching dryer. Easy to use, dries quickly and moisture sensor drying seems to work well. The lint trap took a bit to get used to but it seems to a really good job of not letting lint get beyond the screen

Excellent Drying Time

LindaKay366 8/10/2020

This is hands-down, the BEST dryer we have ever owned, and we've owned many. It is the fastest dryer yet. 30 minutes or less for an entire load of regular clothes. I've never had to restart it to finish drying anything. Always done right the first time.

Satisfied, but not totally in love

Pamandie 8/6/2020

I love the design and the features, but I am not a fan of the lint trap, one of the tabs has already broken off and we haven't even had it a month. It's difficult to open and cumbersome once it is open. It also doesn't always get clothes dried on the first run, however, that could be due to the humidity in Nebraska in July.

This has been a great dryer for us as a family of four. Dries huge loads fairly quick. Noise is normal, not really quiet or loud. The sanitize function is nice and clothes come out smelling fresh (although it takes over 3 hours). Do not regret the purchase at all.

ElenaLT 7/30/2020

This is the best dryer. It's not noisy, doesn't throw off a lot of heat like my previous unit, and it works well. I haven't had a chance to use the steam feature yet, mostly because bi don't think that the installers attached the proper hoses. But I will be rectifying that situation as soon as I have them stacked...
