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.

Wife got tired of struggling with the old dryer so we bought the new Whirlpool unit. Now she's happy, I'm very happy. BTW. It's been so long since we shopped for the dryers we had no idea of the convenient and inovative features available now.

I bought my dryer about 5 weeks ago and have found it easy to use. I especially like that it is quiet both as it washes and when it notifies me of a completed wash.

Misrepresentation

Not happy already used! 4/24/2019

I bought this expensive dryer because it was advertised as having the steam cycle. When it was being installed and I asked about the steam feature I was informed the steam kit did not come with it and I needed to purchase and install it separately!! Surely, the steam kit should have been included in the original purchase? I cannot find information on what I need to buy and how/who to install. If I had known this to be the case I would not have spent $1,200 on what is to me an average dryer.
