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.

Great washer

10/29/2018

I love having a top loader as opposed to a side loader. The only negative is when the laundry becomes uneven mid wash and the whole washer shakes and makes a super loud banging sound this may happen with most top loaders? it works well and is easy to clean.

Large capacity gets the job done.

4/15/2018

We had this as a replacement via American Home Sheild as comparable to our broken washer. I was nervous reading the reviews of noise and instability but so far its been working great for us Its no worse than other washers Ive used it clean wells and as for the balance problems if you lay the clothes out right its fine. The many options including Jeans works great for us. No complaints at all so far.

Not What I Expected

1/31/2018

Got this washer with the purchase of a new home. Within just a few wash cycles we noticed that at times not all the clothes were getting completely wet. The little scent beads were not getting dissolved and the washer was getting off balance way more than a brand new machine should. We now have to select the Deep Fill option every time in order to have it fill up enough to get everything wet and for it to dissolve the scent beads we like using. It still gets off balance and we have to pause the machine and space out the clothing. Not really happy with the washer so far.
