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.

Disappointing in So Many Ways

blakefield3 10/23/2014

Within days of the dishwasher being professionally installed, the plastic piece that facilitates connection to the drain broke, resulting in a terrible leak. The repairman noted that the piece "used to be made of metal, but they're using cheaper materials these days." Over the next twelve months, the plastic piece that supports the upper rack also broke. A bigger issue arose when another internal part "wore-out". All this happened within 24 months of purchase! To add insult to injury, when I tried to use my extended warranty, I was told there were no "certified" repair people in my area.

needed a efficient dishwasher, because we are in an area that requires holding tanks, this limits water usage and I need a dishwasher that I could have a coustom door made to match my cabinets. It all works

The finest dishwasher I have ever owned. Super quiet and exc

Woody123 11/19/2013

The installation was very easy although I did have some difficulty in installing the front panel. The unit itself is excellent and the performance is better than any dishwasher I have ever had. The dishes and glasses come out sparkling and dry and the washing options are very helpful.

I really like it. Putting glasses in the top so that they stay is a little tricky. That is my only complaint. Thanks
