Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. Our basic delivery service is complimentary with most appliances $396 and up and mattresses $599 & up. Additional charges apply to luxury brands, built-in refrigerators, pro-style ranges and deliveries outside our standard area. Installation of built-in items can be easily arranged. Need your old products removed? We charge $9 per haul-away item with delivery of most products. Ask for details.

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.

Works Better than I Expected

Razz 9/21/2017

First - rest assured this is the exact product I purchased. Onto the review. I've been using this dryer for approximately 2.5 months. I owned a WP dryer very similar to this one - minus the steam, for nearly 20 yrs. It wasn't drying as it should and felt that it was time to get new opposed to having it fixed. When I went searching for a new dryer - I wanted 2 things....1. A hamper door 2. A lint trap not on top of the dryer (not the easiest to clean for a short person). Unfortunately - I couldn't find a dryer w/the lint trap not on the top. I'm not sure why they aren't manufactured this way any longer - but it's a huge disappointment. I worry about how much lint/dirt escapes the lint trap when pulling it out to clean it. I'm forever having to wipe out the curve where the lint trap slides into as well as the top of the dryer. The drum to this dryer is huge...the same as my old one, but dries much better than my old one ever did. I use the Energy Saver setting set to very dry and 99% of the time, the clothes all come out dried. The only time they don't, is if someone has overloaded the washer (Whirlpool companion to this dryer - which I hate) or there are many pieces of heavy clothing to be dried (think 3-4 pairs of adult jeans and several heavy sweatshirts as well as shirts). I had no need for the steam feature of this dryer - so I did NOT have it hooked up. This has not affected the performance of the dryer. The one con to this dryer - I find it to be very loud. I honestly didn't think a dryer could be louder than a washer....but this one is. And if you wondering if this is an honest review because you may see this review as being part of a sweepstakes entry - rest assured it is. Being entered into the sweeps has NOT influenced my review in any way, shape, or manner.

Disappointed with dryer

MoWilk 9/8/2017

Bought a washer/dryer set 2 months ago. The washer is fine, but the dryer often doesn't dry clothes completely, especially jeans or anything with a thick waistband. We've cleaned out the dryer hose twice, but the problem persists. Our electric bill is higher because we're having to run the dryer extra to get things dry! Not impressed.

Gets the job done

Kristen 8/1/2017

Nothing fancy about this dryer, but gets the job done. Great value for the price. Only thing I would avoid next time I buy a dryer would be the vent being on top of the unit. It gets dust particles all over the top when you pull it out to change it. Not a big deal but I will keep that in mind for next time I purchase.

Steam refresh is not working at all

Working mom 7/31/2017

I purchased this dryer since April 2017 and technicians has visited 3 times and still trying to fix the steam refresh function. My work clothes need to be refreshed and reduced wrinkles in the morning. But that 2 pieces of clothes are soaking wet after steam refresh. The technician told me it only work with full load of clothes in order to touch the sensor to dry the clothes. So Is this dryer not design to steam refresh 2-4 garments for a small household or it is design for full load only? If this steam refresh function is design for full load only, I would not buy it. Do i need to put my whole 2 weeks work clothes into the dryer every morning in order to use steam refresh function ? That does not make sense.
