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.

Submitted by Ninja Mom - 10/31/2016

We purchased this after having the top of the line exploding Samsung. We are a family of 6 people, 3 pets and a lot of laundry. When choosing a washer and dryer I need power, efficiency, and easy. This set does not disappoint. It has all the bells and whistles. I no longer have to lug our heavy comforters to the nasty laundry mat everytime the cat pukes on it. It is gentle on my gentlest things, and has the power to wash 13 year old boy under garments...yikes! Highly reccommend.
