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.

Love it. Really like the way the clothing comes out. Feels steamy and really clean. The best part is getting notifications letting me know it's 5 minutes before being done. And then tell me it's done. Awesome!!!

This works so well wash comes out clean and fairly quick too. I my dryer loves it to, makes it work less. The bonus is the WiFi connectivity, I know when the washer is about to be done so I can get more laundry done in a day.

So much better than my top loader

Specks on the Beach 8/11/2020

I bought a top loading washer in a rush, during our last move. It was cheap, the first machine in the door, and I was over everything by that point so I bought it in about 5 minutes. My wife and son are short, so they would always be like "switch the laundry Dad, I can't reach the bottom". After about 2 and a half years of this, I was fed up. I listed my old washer for free on a local marketplace, and set off looking for a new front loader. This machine is awesome. It not only is too short for me (6'2") to see into (translation: I don't have to switch the laundry anymore after bleaching a shirt I did t see still in the machine), but it alerts my Apple Watch when the laundry is done/been sitting for a while. This means I can yell, "one of you needs to change the laundry" without leaving the comfort of my La-Z-Boy! This machine also does laundry as wonderfully as you would expect from a mid-priced front loader.

Hunglow 8/11/2020

The machine is great and easy to use. There are a lot of options to use. Most of the clothes are mostly dry after each wash. Only downfall is if you put to much HE soap, it will spill out in the front. It's suck that the manual says it happens and nothing you can do about it.

Washer working as expected so far. I wish size ratings were by pounds or baskets of laundry like the commercial washers. Cubic feet doesn't mean you can fill that area with clothes. Unit is way larger than my previous washers. Double check the physical size.

Not too bad

LeslieDW 8/10/2020

The washer holds a ton of clothes so loads I had to split in 2 loads can now be done in one. There is something weird that when you close the detergent drawer water shoots out into the washer. The buttons are not very sensitive so sometimes it takes a few presses to get the item to engage. My last washer had a light that stayed on to remind me there was a finished load and this washer doesn't. I haven't tried the app yet so cannot comment on that. Now if only we could get the dryer delivered! Purchased on 7/12/20 and now being told it could be October before it's delivered!

Fits in my space better than the old one. Very quiet. Rock solid, no moving around during wash or final spin. Cleans clothes. The vent feature didn't impress me, it takes a long time and was more annoying than just leaving the door open to dry out overnight.

Really Cleans

sherjoe41 8/9/2020

I love how this cleans my clothes they come out looking fresh and clean. I also love that it has a clean out on the front of the machine to check for baby socks or other items missing to just to clean out to keep washer working right. Touch pad is extremely sensitive and gentle touch is all you need. Venting feature to keep washer fresh is great only thing is it runs for 8 hours once you get it going and I question how that is energy efficient. I haven't had this to long probably 2 months but so far its working as promised. The spin cycle is also really nice as whole house doesn't shake like my old machine I don't even know spin cycle is running with this new machine.
