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.

Pretty dishwasher, but.....

Robert85 2/22/2018

I have been disappointed with the purchase of this dishwasher. There is a set of plastic pulleys mounted on each side of door that require replacement about every 3 years because strings that connect to the springs at each side of the door wear the middle groove of the pulleys and cause a terrible harmonic noise when the door is opened or closed. Silverware racks had to be replaced after about 5 years from kids dropping silverware into the slots and the rack bottoms breaking/clogging into the hard food grinder - silverware racks should have been designed about 2 inches deeper from top slots to bottom to prevent. Additionally, dishes on the top rack often come out dirty. Now it's time to replace this dishwasher after 10 years since it's leaking. I would have expected better quality. I cannot recommend.

quiet, dependable

1/30/2016

We have had this dishwasher for ~5.5 years now and have been very happy. It's quieter than most models and does a good job of cleaning. Although just recently, the glasses on the top rack are coming out dirty, spotted. In looking at the manual, there isn't any maintenance requirements and we read most of the online suggestions. Nothing appears to be related. It was really great up until now.

Poor quality

11/2/2015

After few years having this dishwasher we are not happy. We had to change the basket because the plastic broke and let the appliance to pass through. But the main problem, the glasses and little bowls in the upper rack began dirtier and dirtier as we use it ( even if the spray arm is spinning properly. Cheaper than our old plastic dishwasher at 350$.

Have not been happy

AdamA 9/22/2014

Although this dishwasher has a nice look, after owning one for the past 4 years we have not been happy. Service problems, it is much nosier than expected, our utensil basket has several areas on the bottom of it that are broken out which allows our utensils fall out the bottom and a couple of the adjustable racks we have just thrown away because they don't work.
