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.

Just "OK"

B’ann 11/22/2019

Doesn't dry well. Not sure but that the heating element is not working. Need to call for assistance. The dryer I had was working well but the start button had disappeared, and, since it was old, decided to update rather than spend $100 for repair only to have it die in a few months. So, at this point, not too happy with this machine

CLaborde 11/11/2019

I got a great deal on a great dryer! Has really good features and my favorite one of all is that the door opens from the top down so when I open the door the clothes don't fall out onto the floor. It has the wrinkle prevention mode too which is really great and it has a nice loud buzzer so I can hear it from anywhere in the house.

Green Man 11/11/2019

I've only been using this new dryer for less than a month. I've used most of the features and so far so good. I replaced a 20 years old Kenmore dryer and have been warned several times that this machine will not last that long. Like so many other things today we have to lower expectations.

Back to Basics!

wgrant18 11/1/2019

I love this dryer because there are no high tech pieces! I have owned several machines and I found the ones that have digital screens, wifi, etc., tend to break more frequently. I wanted something basic, and this is it! It dries my clothes, towels, and sheets efficiently and I love it!
