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.

Rikkiranay 5/22/2020

Looked all around for washers and dryers. Found this one with matching washer bought the pedestals too. Was spendy but don't let that hold you back, I am not regretting it one bit. Go ahead and splurg on this set you get more for your money when you do. The washer complements this dryer and they communicate together. There are so many features when you buy both. Love it! It has not held me up waiting for clothes to finish drying so I can put the next load in. Its READY.

I love our large capacity dryer. King comforters have room to move while it dries. I didn't give it 5 stars because, not all the lint collects in the lint trap and is left on the top next to the clothes. (See photo)

Excellent Cleaning and Plenty of Features

Oakley0 5/11/2020

We purchased these machines to upgrade and replace our 10 year old front load set that we had of another brand. These machines look amazing and have so many features. We received these and got them set up and loads going as fast as we could. This dryer dries cloths faster than our previous and is so easy to use. The unit has plenty of features to dry any load you throw at it. The dryer was easy to set up. The Doors on the Dryer and Washer can be Reversed and the process is very easy because of how our laundry room is set up it was a nice feature. I reversed the doors and found out the machines are solid. I had to call support to get help setting up the SmartHQ App, it was an issues with how my cell phone WiFi was set up. I have to say the support was probably some of the best I have received in a while. The first ring someone answered and helped with the issue quick. The SmartHQ App is simple but gives you the ability to see the status of your laundry and turn the Extended Tumble on if you need. The app also shows how many loads has been completed for the last 7 days. I highly recommend this Dryer your laundry will smell so fresh.

Great Investment - Even Better Dryer

mdr0590 4/15/2020

This dryer was purchased to replace a very old, inefficient unit. When I say that there is a world of difference, that is an understatement. The features are outstanding - I don't know how I lived without having the dryer notify me when clothes are almost done and actually done! Dry cycles are frequently faster than estimated, and everything comes out completely dry. The unit does not shake or make too much noise, and I am still playing with all of the different options - each one more useful than the last. I would highly recommend this dryer.

Big and beautiful

WLDII 4/15/2020

I love the large capacity and features of my new dryer. I am disappointed in its ability to get clothes, even smaller loads, completely dry on the first try. I feel like I'm selecting the correct settings, but I almost always have to run it through the cycle a 2nd time. I assume that the sensors are trying to protect the clothes, erring on the side of dampness. Also, the dryer filet is difficult to clean and the plastic broke after two weeks of use.

Chels5678 4/14/2020

It's a pretty great dryer so far. Only a few minor complaints. It can sometimes be inconsistent on drying. Some of the clothes will come out completely dry with others still being damp. Doesn't happen every time but a little disappointed in that. Also not a fan of the lint trap. Every time a load is done there is debris/lint on top of the trap that I have to remove before unloading so as not to get it all over my clothes. Minor issues here. Otherwise it's a great dryer with great features, the WiFi ability being my favorite

Awful quality

A Team 4/14/2020

The first day we had it, the door front fell off. Then after two weeks, the clip on the lint catcher broke off. Good heavens! Where's the quality!? When I remove the lint catcher, I can see loads of lint below the lint catcher lining the inside of the dryer. It's as if a good deal of the lint is bypassing the catcher! I had to use a special tool to get all the lint out. That's with me even using the lint catcher! Awful!

WaverLH 3/31/2020

You may have seen my washer review, so this is kinda part II for the set. As I am EXTREMELY happy with my washer, the dryer is kind of an afterthought. This dryer also has the same wifi/app feature as the washer, which is very helpful. We are very happy with the set.

Hoping this isn't going to become a problem

Valeriej 3/27/2020

I love mostly everything about this dryer so far. However, the control cover panel is loose. The top corner above the power button sticks out instead of being flat like all the other sides. You can push it and it moves in and out. I'm afraid it will eventually affect the use of the electronics underneath and/or something will get caught on it and rip it off. A service tech came out and said it's a design flaw and the only thing he could do is submit pics to the engineer and see if they change it. I'm not so sure. I don't recall noticing this when looking at it in the stores. Once we are no longer social distancing from the pandemic, I'll go to the store to view it in person. I feel like he just kind of blew me off. Wondering if anyone else's dryer has that issue? According to him, they all would be designed like that.

Unlike the washer the dryer took a little more time to figure out the right settings for clothes. A short learning curve took care of that and now clothes come out perfect. Haven't tried all of the features yet but I'm sure they will not disappoint.

The Washer is great. But it pays to read the manual to select the correct setting. We bought this washer for our new home. I have washed dog blankets, curtains, rugs, and athletic clothes. I love the versatility. And the venting feature makes a big difference. And gives me a great deal of relief that I don't have to constantly clean the tub.
