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.

Cleans Really Well

4/21/2018

Simple easy to use product that really washes great. Features I like? No top spinner which allows more top loading items soap dispenser is easy to use. Features I wish were better? Getting used to utensil holder and bottom rack could use some reconfiguring to allow 2 fry pans vs. 1.

3/24/2018

I purchased this to replace my old one. Lots of bells and whistles I did not need. Do not like that the indicator lights come on each and every time you open and close it. Would prefer not to use that feature. Has lots of features I have not used. One we tried by mistake sanitize and it took over 2 hrs to finish with the cleaning. Overall it works well and has lots of space for the dishes. Guess I am just a simple kind of girl.

I bought this to replace an older dishwasher that came with my home. It is the best investment I could have made. It cleans the dishes once unlike my old one that took two-three rinses and it has great features such as steam dry ad plenty of room for utensils. My only complaint is that it sticks out more than my old one and I cannot use my utensil drawer. Other than that I am completely satisfied.
