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.

Highly Efficient!!

I have had traditional washers and prior to this machine I had another brand of HE Front Load Washer. My Maytag HEFLW is by far THE best. My clothes are so very clean when the cycle is complete. I especially like how the machine "pulls" all of the excess water out of my machine. No mess when transferring to the dryer, no water left in the machine which stops the odors I had with the previous HEFLW. When shopping for a new washer, I contemplated what I really wanted as I was not satisfied with my previous HEFLW. I am very pleased and satisfied with this machine. I hope to get the compatible dryer very soon! Thanks Maytag!
