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 dryer!!

tattoo 10/4/2017

My old dryer was so old I didn't know dryers came with lights on the inside now!! That is a great feature-you don't leave anything behind. Huge inside-good for blankets and towels. I like the auto-dry feature the best. My only concern is that the timer knob is plastic and a bit hard to turn-you don't want to force it to "off" so I just let it run down after taking my stuff out.

Glad to have a basic dyer that is made here in America! This dyer replaced a month old GE electronic dyer that was made in Mexico! It only lasted 5 weeks and GE had to refund our money because they had no one that could work on it here!

Hairball 8 6/21/2017

You can teach an old man to use new equipment. Since retiring in 09 I do the wash. This is a fun dryer, it keeps up with the washer. Boy did that cut down on the time it take to do all the wash, instead of all day, just until noon now. I used to see the lint, but this machine hides it. But I remember most loads! How come when you put in whites, the lint comes out grey? How come when you put in all different colors of towels the lint is white?
