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.

Defective to the point it should be recalled

bergmann10 1/8/2017

This dishwasher is garbage. The feature that allows you to lower & raise the top rack fell apart on both sides. The spinner attached to the top rack (it's sits underneath the top rack) fell off. The bottom rack has a serious design flaw - it's constantly coming off the track.
