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.

Poor Quality

valdez3 5/14/2014

I bought this a little over a year ago and the handle has come off twice. It's not very good Quality and because the handle is plastic and not built well it pulls away for the computer parts underneath. The fist repair was covered but it broke again within 3 months.

Good features

11/5/2013

I like this machine. I have some bigger cups and it can be a bit of a challenge to get them to fit on the top shelf at times. Also the machine is slightly louder than some that I have been around. Overall I really like this machine it just takes some time to figure out what settings work the best for your dishes.

This product could be improved.

11/5/2013

I spent a couple of years searching for the right "fit" in a new dishwasher, for Quality, longevity and price. The Quality and performance of this dishwasher has not met what I replaced. The dishes do not always get clean. The silverware has to be checked closely for cleanliness. The adjustable top rack is not as stable as I would like. I would NOT buy this dishwasher again. I have used the additive suggested, The best suggestion I have received was to get the water HOT at the sink before starting the dishwasher. It helps but the dishes, especially the silverware is not always clean. Instead of worry free dishes, I have made adjustments for the dishwasher....pre washing, etc.

gets my dishes really clean!

Nic1mom 10/29/2013

so much better then my last dishwasher!I don't have to waste time or water rinsing dishes any longer. my glass baking dishes look brand new again, the baked on black around the edges has even been removed by the jet clean setting on this dishwasher, and i couldn't get that off with a Brillo pad.

sleek looking large dishwasher

dgage 10/29/2013

I bought this new dishwasher when I moved into our recently renovated home - the dishwasher works well now that I understand it does not like rinsing agent ;-) that made the washer leak all over our brand new wood floors ... this machine takes longer to wash than the unit in my previous home (that I had purchased in 2003), but overall I'm very happy with my purchase! it fits a lot of dishes of various sizes and I can stuff it full - it cleans well every time

I LOVE THIS DISHWASHER

JWMOM5 10/29/2013

I put up with a less than capable dishwasher for years.You had to practically clean the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher. Not this one. I love it!!! Unless something is extremely stuck on,I don't even need to rinse the dishes.Even most pots and pans come clean.I really like that it has quick wash,tough scrub,light wash,jet clean,steam,plus a bunch more different options.The only thing I would change is to be able to get more dishes in it at one time.

great washer

sdrlsu 10/29/2013

This is a fantastic washer. It does a great job cleaning the dishes so quietly, people don't know it is running. The filter that collects larger pieces of food or items that fall is very accessible. The wash cycles are long, so plan ahead if you need dishes for a event. I wish it would have a timer as my last washer!
