Delivery is for standard common carrier "curbside" delivery. "Curbside Delivery" includes delivery to the curb in front of your home.It does not typically include moving the item into your home, garage, or other location.The carrier will call to schedule a delivery appointment.A signature is required at the time of delivery.Please include a daytime phone number with your shipping information.Delivery locations that are extraordinary (such as an island or mountain top or extreme rural areas) may create additional delivery charges, one of our sales agents will be in touch to review your delivery options.

When delivery occurs please personally inspect your merchandise before signing for the product.Look for things such as holes in the box or any other type of damage to the packaging.If the packaging looks questionable do not sign for the item(s)!If you feel the damage is something you can live with- Please note all damage on the bill of lading when you sign for it.Do not let anyone tell you that you must sign for the item. You do not have to sign for it if you feel the item is questionable.If you do decide to refuse the item, make specific notes that describe the damage in detail and simply call us for a refund or reshipment.Please understand if you sign, you are stating that everything looks great and you will not be able to claim any damage caused by the delivery company.

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've been happy with our dryer! It has very accurate sensing and the options for cycles are great without being overwhelmed or redundant. It's smart capability- getting texts when the cycle is done - is everything I didn't know I needed, too! Very happy with our purchase.

Dries so fast

TimM7 1/7/2021

It dries fast and does a great job. App lets me know 5 min before load is finished and when it's done. It also lets me know if I've left my clothes for 30 min so I can run a quick wrinkle guard. Lint trap is also great.

After months of research and indecisiveness this dryer is exactly what I was looking for. As a family of 6 with a shared laundry bathroom space I needed something big enough to complete all the loads I do on a regular as well as something that looks nice enough to be "on display" and this dryer is it! It has all the features and settings I needed plus some I didn't know I needed.

Lint screen hard to clean / chime too quiet

Smith52 12/31/2020

The lint screen is ridiculous to clean. The chime "Sound" even at the highest of the 3 settings is too quiet. Page 7 of the manual explains that the sensor will leave "some items damp, such as collars or waistbands" (pockets) which then need the "quick dry" cycle. The attached picture shows the lint screen laid out on 18x18 inch tile.

This washer and dryer has so many features already programmed in a ton more you can do yourself. I am still learning about it but so far I really like it. Very good brand.

QUICK AND HAS A SANiTIZE MODE

Wmiller700 12/28/2020

Honestly the Sanitize mode alone is worth the price of this dryer. It has saved so many of my sports shirts from being tossed because we couldn't get rid of the smell. My wife is allergic to scented detergents so with or old machine we had to scrub and wash several times for any hope of the shirts coming out clean. This machine, one load on sanitize kills all the smell and allows us to keep the shirts. Huge win.
