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.

Ran well until it died at 2 years

10/7/2018

Really liked it. Suddenly it stopped running the wash motor. Resetting it by turning power off at the breaker for a minute would cure it once. Not an obvious failure so too much hassle to fix. Am not pleased.

Good product but...

9/24/2018

Happy with until a few weeks after we bought it and the paint on the bottom rack started to lose the tip of the finishing paint and by now a little over a year after the whole rack is getting rusted and falling apart also the top rack sits in tracks that keeps getting the unscrewed as a result we have to go in every month or so to keep it from falling. Not good...

Wonderful

9/5/2018

This is the first dishwasher we have ever purchased and we couldnt be happier It cleans so well and is very quiet. I love the interior space for our family of four. We never use the dryer function but thats just a personal preference. I usually just pull the racks out a bit and let them dry. Last night I heard it end the cycle and it played a short jingle. It was very cute. Obviously its not very loud because we have had it a month or two and I only heard it because I happened to be in the room.

We had a GE dishwasher before this one it looked like it was the same but the racks inside were not made to fit normal dishes. It takes 2 spots for on bowl etc. When you pull the bottom rack out it fall off to the side as there is no guide to keep it on the door. It doesnt dry good. It is quite.

Ive had this for a little while and the thing thats bothering me is I am short and the dishwasher sits to the right of my sink and when I reach the cabinet above where my glasses are I accidentally push on the dishwasher and it lights up like its going to start. It doesnt but it is annoying but I have to open the door and turn off the dryer button. Also the silverware is really inconvenient on the door so be put it on the left side in the washer but doing that lets things fall over. It doesnt have enough dividers to keep them straight. I didnt include any pictures because I detailed the info. If you want pictures you can let me know. Thank you Delores Meadors
