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.

PapanKC 11/19/2019

This unit was purchased to replace a 20 year old Whirlpool dryer. The features are similar and function has been satisfactory in the month or so of service. If the service life is similar, it will outlast me.

Basic Dryer

ReginaA 11/18/2019

A basic dryer that does what a dryer should -- dries clothes, without "over drying." I bought this dryer six weeks ago. It certainly does the job. Good capacity. Although I haven't had to change the light bulb yet, it is easy to access. Reasonably priced and easy to hood up.

No more wrinkled clothes!

Ninanan 11/15/2019

My new dryer is both efficient and effective. It dries my clothes quickly and well. I no longer have to check my loads to see if they are still wet. Also, clothes come out wrinkle free with the new "drying system". This dryer is a time saver, as well as a work saver...no need ever to press anything! Love it!!

All the features we wanted are in this Whirlpool dryer. It is basic (no steam, etc.) but is simple to operate and works well. It dries gently and quickly. It has the hamper door that makes unloading easier.

Digman2012 10/24/2019

I love the auto dry feature, and it gets clothes dry in the amount of time it takes to wash my clothes, therefore I can easily wash multiple loads of laundry a night. The end signal is also loud enough that I can hear it upstairs (our washer/dryer is in the basement).

CTerese 10/18/2019

I've only had this for a week but I'm liking it. I appreciate the light inside and I actually like that the door opens downward. It all feels well-made. I believe Auto dry senses when the clothes are dry, so each load takes a different amount of time to dry. But clothes always come out dry. There is time-dry, too.

The one thing I don't like is when you use the setting to sense when the clothes are dry they never quite dry. So I've just started using the timed setting.

This was the most affordable dryer with automatic dry sensing. Works as expected, like the old style drop down door to catch the clothes from going all over the floor.
