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.

I like this dryer. It does a great job. The two problems I have are the alert issued when drying is done and the lack of ease in connecting the wifi.

So much space. This makes laundry fun. Please make sure you read the directions and REMOVE the shipping bolts. I did not and this thing was spinning loud and violently during the spin cycle. Once they were removed no issues what so ever. Connecting it to wifi is also a plus

bry730 1/18/2021

Bought the matching washer and dryer. We're happy with both. Occasionally the dryer adjusts the dry time on its own which can sometimes be annoying, but it must be something based on the sensors/settings.

Wish WiFi did more

JRB4 1/17/2021

Amazing dryer, just wish the WiFi function through the app allowed for more control. You can only turn it on if you do delay, which I haven't even tried. But otherwise it serves its purpose and the feature itself have been well worth the money. I do enjoy that it has the extended tumble option to start from the app if you can't get to the dryer promptly at the end of a dry cycle.

MareL x 2 1/13/2021

I am very happy with my dryer. The only issue I have is with the end of cycle tone. Even though there are multiple settings, the loudest is NOT loud enough. I either set a timer on my phone to track the end of the cycle so clothes can be removed before wrinkling or set a timer on the microwave. If I forget, I end up having to de-wrinkle the load.

Solid dryer

Benjamin505 1/13/2021

Overall a solid dryer. Good feature selection to dry appropriate clothing items. The large drum does a good job of drying large comforters. The wifi and app does actually prove useful. The only head scratcher I have is the taco shape lint filter. Cleaning the filter is a bit awkward because it opens up pretty wide. It's cumbersome trying to keep it open while trying to brush out the lint.

LindsayS410 1/11/2021

The different options a for dry times is beyond helpful! The app is great - the dryer is very quiet and it's hard to tell when the laundry is dry, plus having the option to tumble low to help keep clothes wrinkle free when I'm not home is nice! The option the switch which side the door is on was also a major point due to how my laundry room is set-up.
