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.

Good machine

Triker69 9/18/2020

Washes clothes great. Would have liked one where I could control the water level for smaller loads. And the venting option needs to NOT ago for 8 hrs, wasting electricity.

monampa 9/18/2020

I'm happy with this washer after 2 weeks. I particularly like the feature that dries the interior and door seal. This can be a problem with front loaders and is certainly more convenient that leaving the door wide open.

KarenMS 9/15/2020

This washer is the best front loader I've owned! It washes my king sized comforter with room to spare. I like the fact that I can customize features to suit any load. It is SO quiet I cannot hear it spinning even in the other room. The odor block technology allows me to close the door, press the vent button and walk away. No more musty smell

Great washer, bad install and bad door swing chang

Brinx 9/15/2020

The washer is excellent. The Lowe's install was the pits--didn't get the hot water hose tight and had a big mess. Also wouldn't switch the door direction for me. The tool for changing the door also sucks. It broke of in the door switch and it took me over. two weeks to get a new switch. When I put it in I could see that you really didn't need to use the tool.

David Yu 9/15/2020

I love this washer dryer after using it almost every day for a few months. It washes about half a typical load but it washes and dries way better than I expected, even blankets, rugs, and towels come out dry. I've only used one setting so far but there are tons of settings and you can even set your own cycles with an app. Cycles take several hours but I just run it over night and wake up to clean laundry.

LenyoDCV 9/14/2020

I love the feature that shortens wash time to about 35 minutes from 55 plus minutes. I really like the app too as I share the washer with a tenant and can look to see if they are using it and also it alerts when wash is done. I have to walk up a hill and across a walkway to washer so that really makes life easier.

FUTURE WASHER

nikki41 9/11/2020

So excited for this washer. I waited 3 months for it to come back in stock and even though I had a hard time getting it I am so happy I waited the time and did not give in to a different model. This washer is extremely beautiful. It has every option you can think of. Its quiet and my clothes come out smelling fresh. I love the fact that it has wifi and it has the wash and dry feature. I can fit a king size comforter in it without any issues. It even steams clothes. I have waited a long time for this and I could not be happier .

By saving water and electricity, I wasn't sure of the quality of the final washings but WOW! Everything I wash comes out clean, fresh and I've saved water and energy. And the Wifi connection is the cherry on the sundae. This machine is far smarter than I when it comes to how best to wash certain loads of laundry. Thank you for such a wonderful washer!
