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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Great dryer

Submitted by badplanetkevin - 4/7/2021

I do love this dryer. I wanted it because I got the washer of the same model a couple months ago. The washer has silver vents on the door and I wish they emulated that on the dryer as well. Also, the doors come backward by default. When putting them in a standard laundry room, the dryer goes on the left and the washer on the right. The dryer comes with the door opening from the left and the washer comes with it opening from the right. So with both open while transferring laundry, you have 2 doors in the way. That said, swapping the doors was fairly easy. I was quite nervous to do it at first because it's a little more than just swapping the hinge to the other side. Now that the doors open outward from the middle, transferring the laundry goes much smoother.

love the water saving feature, load detect, wifi connect so i know when its done, ultra fresh vent to take extra moisture out. the dryer is awesome! if it detects the load is dry it will shorten drying time. the washer will communicate to the dryer what type of load it has to better your drying time!! simply love this set.

A Great Budget Friendly Dryer

Submitted by Digital Austin - 4/5/2021

I must say I'm actually very impressed with this dryer. Things that I never thought could get dry in an at home setting this handles like a champ and quietly and quickly too. Gone are the days of over 48 min dry times. I absolutely love the wifi capabilities and the set and forget nature of this dryer. We shall definitely see how this holds up in the long term. My only two minor complaints is the bell isn't loud enough for me on it's max setting and I really wish it didn't have the tinted window.

Submitted by Mar2021 - 4/4/2021

Dryer is great as far as features and drying time. I love the WiFi option that reminds me in my phone that the clothes are still in the dryer. The only thing I would change is the lint trap. I have to lay it down to clean it and it has to be cleaned before I take the clothes out or they get lint all over them.

Submitted by brownel02 - 3/30/2021

Initial setup is still an issue. - Cannot connect to wifi to run the app. There is a difference the Network as listed on the door and the one shown in the phone thus the dryer will not connect to the app. - Drying cycles seem to take 20 minutes more than my 20 year old dryer. - There is no way to keep tons of dust off the front door. We have wiped it with a microfiber cloth, sprayed it with anti-static spray...nothing helps. Disappointing.
