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.

Went to this after a 16-year experience with another brand. Vast improvement over what we had, faster, cleaner, easier to use. Very happy with this purchase. Have had it for a month. Wouldn't go back, although the other lasted a long time. Hope that this one does, too!

Excellent features and function

csquieri 2/13/2021

So far this dryer has been a dream! I love the WiFi connect to the washer feature and I leave it set automatically and just hit Go. The steam/wrinkle refresh is another feature I love and works perfect for a quick refresh when needed. It quickly drys large loads of clothes in less time than my old one. I think this is an excellent dryer and I would highly recommend.

503gymo 2/7/2021

I love my new washer/dryer combo. Huge improvement over what I had. I have a couple complaints on the dryer. It keeps "eating" my dryer sheets. They get stuck in the parts that stick out inside (that help with tumbling). Not sure what they are called. The other thing I'm not a fan of is the lint trap. While it traps the lint well enough, it's a pain to clean out. I get lint everywhere while cleaning.

This dryer is even better than we had imagined. We had to wait for months to receive it, but the wait is worth the product. The features are easy to use. The capacity easily takes care of comforters and any bulky item. And it works so quietly, we almost don't know it is running.

Reduce Static function is actually fantastic!

A D S 1/19/2021

I've only had this for about a week but as a complement to the washer, it's been great, no complaints about the dryer as a drying a seemingly simpler device. I will say that the steam functions are fantastic as I've never had a steam dryer before. Also, reduce static really works provided you aren't drying a load full of fleece. That alone has been enough to impress me. Other than that, it dries clothes fairly well. Cycle times are reasonable and the sensor seems accurate enough. The only hiccup has been when drying about 8 pairs of jeans, as these had to go back in. If I could make one suggestion it would be that the dryer should more clearly indicate it is in wrinkle care mode after the cycle is done. As is it just shows 0:00 on the timer but keeps running.

Love the dryer, drys cloths in less time than old one. Only reason not giving 5 stars is because when they are stacked it is hard to see what you are settling the know on. Having the slanted control panel should be flat for consumer use.

Drakev 12/17/2020

Our old machines were dying after 10+ years, so we needed to find replacements. We did a lot of research online and narrowed down our options based on features. In the end the size, extra features, and realistic price are what sold us on this model specifically. Since we've been using the new machines, I love getting messages on my phone to let me know when cycles complete and even reminders after 30 minutes so nothing stays in too long after it's done. I have recommended this to others, and I will continue to do so. This is a great machine, and you should buy it if you're in the market for one.

Nice Dryer Overall

MkinsF 12/13/2020

We purchased the dryer as a set with the washer based on reviews and features. We have less issues with the dryer than the washer, so that's a plus. The dryer has nice features, only problem is when I use the settings for the load type, very rarely do our clothes actually dry. Often times we are left with damp clothes and having to run the dryer 2-3 more times to get it fully dry. We are careful to not overload the dryer to avoid this issue and it doesn't seem to help matters. It's very frustrating to pay the price we did and we are left doing the exact same thing we did with the old dryer, re-drying loads that were still damp after the cycle finished.

The appliances look great and work just like they should. It always takes a bit to find the magic cycle- you know the one you will use for most things but i think after 2 loads I'm already figuring it all out. Very user friendly.
