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.

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.

SamATx 1/11/2021

I love the dryer. The clothing comes out feeling so soft. The only thing that I do not like is that the pipe (dryer duct) takes so much space that the appliance is about 7 inches from the wall.

Love the Options

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.

It dries fast and does a great job. App lets me know 5 min before load is finished and when it's done. It also lets me know if I've left my clothes for 30 min so I can run a quick wrinkle guard. Lint trap is also great.

After months of research and indecisiveness this dryer is exactly what I was looking for. As a family of 6 with a shared laundry bathroom space I needed something big enough to complete all the loads I do on a regular as well as something that looks nice enough to be "on display" and this dryer is it! It has all the features and settings I needed plus some I didn't know I needed.
