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.

Mike 8/15/2017

Our dryer of almost 15 years had recently died. Beginning this process became overwhelming, however, we found this as it fit our needs and the extra has been the steam cycle! My wife absolutely loves this feature. Delivery and setup was efficient and easy. Highly recommended.

Grandma Susie 8/8/2017

I've only had my new Whirlpool Dryer for 2 weeks after my 20 year old Kenmore Dryer which was made by Whirlpool finally broke for the first time. I love the Accudry Sensor Dryer setting along with the Wrinkle Shield option which tumbles the clothes every few minutes until they are removed. Have not used the Steam Refresh Cycle as the water hose has not been connected yet. I also love the 3 Temperature settings....low, medium,high.....in addition to Air Dry. The drum is very large & can hold a lot of clothes & the drop down door is very convenient for removing the clothes & preventing them from falling on the floor.

I love the steam option you can sanitize and unwrinkle slightly worn garments and rid of odors. The capacity is so convenient for big loads and blankets/bulky items. The auto sensing Technology added with the other 2 main features, the high efficiency, plus the warranty on the motor makes this a 5 star product

Misachikapea 4/11/2017

I absolutely love this dryer. Where I used to have to run the dryer for at least 100 minutes to get my towels (and/or other bulky items) dry, I can now dry LARGER loads in LESS time! The wrinkle release setting is pretty neat and I love the steam setting! The only thing is that the door is a little on the small side, I think.

Stacy 3/22/2017

I was so happy with the dryer initially, it dried my clothes and with hardly any wrinkles. The dryer is very quiet. I have only had it 3 1/2 months and now it takes forever for my clothes to dry. It cannot be my vent as I live in a brand new home. I live alone so have small loads. Not understanding

Gets the job done

Oldtimer 3/22/2017

My previous dryer lasted 30 years. I wanted to replace it with a similar dryer that would be simple to use and last a long time. When I went shopping for the replacement I was shocked at the complicated controls and high prices of many new dryers. This dryer has mechanical operation, is easy to use and was a fair price. It installed quickly and easily in the same location. It dries my laundry which is all I need it to do.

Carrie 3/6/2017

I've had this dryer for almost two weeks and I have already noticed a difference. My previous dryer would take 3-4 cycles to dry jeans and towels. This one is done in one cycle - it's energy efficient and very quiet. I have not had a chance to use the steam dryer feature yet but I'm sure that will come in handy once summer rolls around.

mitch 3/3/2017

I like the steam refresh feature. I read the manual how to use that feature but it did not work properly. My shirt did not dry but came out wet. I was under the idea that the feature would dampen the item and dry it for the most part. I guess I will need to work with it more. The Energy Preferred function is really the best area used. We use this area to dry clothes and other things mostly. It does a super job. The worst part about this dryer is the loud buzzer when it cycle function finishes. Having a on/off cycle function switch is a very good idea.
