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 but touchy

MacDaddyMoe 1/2/2019

First off, LOVE IT!! its quiet, big & fast... however the detergent volume adjuster seems to lose its previous position, forcing me to check it with every wash... other than that - great unit, hope it lasts for a decade :)

Closet fit with no flat cord?

closetwasherguy 6/13/2018

I bought this because I wanted to fit it into a fairly tight area. The 31.5" depth is great, why do they ship it without a flat cord? The plug sticks out 3-4" which prevents me from installing it in a tight place. Don't buy this if you need it to sit close to the wall.

As Good As It Looks!

KiawahMike 1/29/2018

This was an upgrade from a Bosch Compact washer. Clothes are less wrinkled, much less beaten up and obviously - fewer loads per week.

Great Washer

Tim9702 11/7/2017

We bought this a month ago and is just as we expected. Washer runs quiet and washes the clothes great. We have a small area to put these machines and they fit just right
