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 Fetures, Easy to Use, Save: Energy, Time & $

PSU Punguy 10/31/2019

Wow! Plenty of room to dry large loads. Bulky items : Comforters, Sleeping Bags, no problem. Space saving : Fits into 33 installation depth. Stackable. Energy Star ratings that exceed the Government standard. Saving : Resources, Time and Money. Touch Screen that adapts to you with continued use and customized settings. Wrinkles : Thing of the past. Wrinkle Shield Plus with optional steam, up to 150 minuets or until the door opens the tumbling and steam keeps wrinkles at bay. Steam Refresh Cycle : Water and heat to remove wrinkles on dried clothing; eliminates the need to re wash. Saving time and resources. Sanitize Cycle : Eliminate 99.9 % Common household bacteria. Tested were K. Pneumonia, P. Aeruginosa and S. Aureus. Never over dry : 3 sensors track moisture and adapt drying times to end cycles at the right time. Static Reduce Option : Sprat mist and tumbling after load is dry. Eco Boost : Lower temperatures and extended cycle time, energy saving back to you. Bulky Items : Sweaters, Pillows, Sneakers and hats. Use the dryer rack for tumble free drying. Smart Phone and Wi -Fi technology is included to save time. New Apps and features being added. My only complaints are the 1 year warranty. For a dryer of this quality and price it should be longer. Also the vent pushes the dryer away from the wall and eats ups space.

Very Great Machine

Breezy Mama 9/25/2019

I bought this about a month ago and am very happy with my purchase. The machine is very efficient and convenient. The only thing I would change is the wireless option can be easily disabled and defeats the purpose of being able to restart the machine before arriving home.

Hate the touchscreen!

SomeGuy18 9/24/2019

What a terrible user interface. Knobs and buttons are so much easier to use. The touchscreen is finicky and it takes twice as long to tell the dryer what you want it to do. And the internet connection? That's great when it works but it often doesn't work. In addition, it automatically disables remote control every time you open the door. Why????? That makes no sense! As a dryer it works OK but it's rather noisy. Also, it has the world's largest door which makes it impossible to put anything in front of the machine and still open or close the door. I'm talking about things like laundry baskets. The inside opening is standard-sized. Why put such an enormous door on the thing? For looks? The bottom line is that this dryer is much too much trouble to operate.

It has good and bad settings!

Ira7 8/13/2019

It dries very well the delicates and the whites settings. The clothes come out soft and dry. But other settings are not good at all. It doesn't dry completely, so the cycle has to be repeated again and again when it STOPS without drying completely. Either give up and spread the clothes over the chairs and drying rack or change it to the whites' cycle to finish the load. It kind of "dictates" that the load has dried, but you touch the clothes or pillows or towels, and are still wet. I'm disappointed with the results and with the time lost. I wish there was a manual setting in order to bypass the "smartness" of machine that doesn't always help. If other people don't have these problems, maybe the service department should check the electronics of this one.

Beautiful appliance

Bought it 3 weeks ago. So far, it works as advertised, but so much to discover yet. Also, it looks great.

Great features and very nice looking

Suzeesm 7/16/2019

I received this dryer a month ago and I'm very pleased with its performance and it senses the dryness of the fabric and as soon as it's dry it shuts off automatically. You can set it to any dryness level that you like and it can also be connected to Wi-Fi to turn on and shut off with your phone.
