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.

Sam 9/28/2017

So I purchased this unit to simply be a workhorse for our busy family. No frills. I have a few concerns. The latch to close the dryer is 'difficult' and I fear will give me problems. It doesn't seem to want to close the door properly. And anyone knows that your unit will not work without the door shut. My next concerns is the door handle is flimsy and always slides out. I had to take it to stay put. I would recommend spending a few more dollars for a sturdier piece of equipment.

Garden Zen 7/11/2017

We bought our gas dryer two months ago and love it. We previously an electric dryer that just died one day. I was hesitant about the switch to gas, but my husband had heard good things about it so we decided to try it. We are so glad we did. It dries in half the time and I like that I can clearly adjust the temperature setting. Its simple effective design makes it easy for my 8 year-old to help with laundry too. : )

Really loud, no moisture sensor, bad purchase

bagofmoons 4/17/2017

Don't buy this dryer. It is EXTREMELY LOUD (I can hear it on the second floor of my house when it is running in the basement. I can also hear it from outside the house. It sounds like there's an airplane in my basement.). Additionally, it does not have a moisture sensor, which means it's less energy efficient, and there is no way to turn off the wrinkle control setting, so if you leave a load in the dryer overnight, you have the pleasure of being awakened every 15 minutes by the roar of the dryer as it turns on. This dryer is relatively cheap, but the downsides far outweigh the lower price; it is way better to spend a little more money for a moisture sensor and quieter motor/belt.
