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.

I have had my new machine about 2 weeks now and just love it. It has great selection of cycles holds a large load and most of all gets my clothes clean. I had switched to a top loading machine and it was horrible did not get clothes clean. Will never use anything but a front loader again. It does a great job getting spinning the clothes to get all the water out without tangling them all up like the top loader machine. It is even able to handle my horses saddle pads and other washable items and gets them beautifully clean.

Great washer

12/6/2018

I love this washer. Its so easy to use and uses so much less energy and water than my old one. Honestly everything about this washer is great except one little thing the drawer where you put the detergent and fabric softener has to be taken out dumped out and be kept out to dry after each wash otherwise mold grows in/on the drawer and the slot the drawer goes into. Other than that it is a fantastic washer.
