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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Dryer Great for first two years

Submitted by Lukej - 4/1/2018

We have had our LG dryer for a little over two years. We are now in the midst of our second repair in the matter of a month for the same reason. I am not sure if it is a quality issue in the manufacturing but we have become very unhappy with this product and will not be buying an LG washer or dryer when we move to our new home.

Submitted by hem1 - 3/5/2018

I have used the dryer for a few weeks. After studying the settings I believe that I program it correctly for the load. Almost every time however it has turned off before the load is entirely dry and well before the anticipated run time.

Great washer

Submitted by Watcher of the Clothes - 12/16/2017

I bought this washer a month ago and I love it. I was sceptical about not having an agitator in the middle. I mean how can the clothes get clean? He explained the special wall design and how it grabs the clothes and swishes them around. He showed us how each manufacture did their attempt but LG was by far the best. Using the machine for a month and literally watching he was so right. This model has a glass top so you can watch the washing. I know really? This lady is watching her clothes wash? It so fascinating Lol. It washes great It swishes and swishes. I must state it is a long cycle. Most of the time about 90 minutes but the tub is bigger so less loads. Hooray Some other people had mention the tub is deep and harder to get the clothes out for short people I have to agree about that also. Im 5 3. But very doable. I dont need a stool or anything. I love my new washer I hope it lasts
