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.

Stopped working after 1 month

Submitted by MS - 10/3/2017

I bought this washer and dryer pair a month ago. First, they delivered the wrong washer. My husband had to miss an additional day of work to receive the correct deliver a few days later. Then, less than a month after we received this dryer it just stopped working. It just no longer turns on. Just completely dead. We called whirlpool and they said someone would come out today (tuesday) to repair the dryer. We had a 8am-4pm window. Then at 1:30, the tech called and said Whirlpool never notified them of the appointment and they could not come until Thursday. So not only is the product a lemon, but Whirlpool is unwilling or unable to help us resolve the issue.

Disappointed

Submitted by Mario - 9/26/2017

Bought a matching set in June and the first dryer came without the drum spinning and now the second one lasted a month before it decided to give us problems. Since we've had the repair company out 4 times and the dryer is still not working properly. When will labor and parts be enough to consider our dryer a lemon?

GREAT !!

Submitted by Tammy - 7/11/2017

I recently purchased the washer & dryer set. I LOVE IT ! My husband works road construction his jeans are ground in with dirt, mud etc my last washer was an LG & we hated it. He would have to wash his jeans with a pressure washer first then put them in the machine to get them clean. The washer has a huge tub and I love it. The dryer is very nice. Has a lot of different settings that I use. And a time dry. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this set. I am sold on Whirlpool now. as these are the first 2 I have ever owned.

Terrible Set

Submitted by Gina - 7/10/2017

I bought this set- Cabrio. They are terriblee, don't waste your money. the washer does not clean clothes, leaves detergent in them, wrinkles them incredibly. The dryer just wrinkles clothes and intertwines them into a huge mess. My clothes never looked so bad. I had the Whirlpool duets for 12 years prior to these, without any problems.Sent back the Cabrios and went back to front loaders.

Submitted by Valerie - 7/5/2017

I bought this washer over a month ago. Wow I can't believe the difference in my cloths. This washer is huge. That doesn't mean cram as much in it as possible. It mean your able to wash a comforter at home and have it come out clean. I'd recommend this washer to anyone who is looking for a new one. You wont be disappointed.

Great overall dryer

Submitted by Ryan the geek - 7/3/2017

I bought this about two weeks ago and honestly it has been great. The steam isn't setup just yet, but I will be hooking that up in a few weeks. The capacity is nice and the auto sense is good. The only time I've felt damp laundry was with some sheets and the sheets tangled inside the fitted sheet. They still weren't wet, just slightly damp. Otherwise, the drying time is great and it works as advertised.

This dryer replaces another brand that was advertised to be a large capacity dryer. Not so.....it was so small. This Whirlpool model truly has a large drum. I can easily dry my comforter without it coming out wrinkled or still wet in spots. Love the steam feature and also being able to set it to buzz before the clothes are completely dry. I can pull things out that I don't want to shrink.
