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.

There is not a cycle called "Permanent Press." Not sure which setting to use when wanting to put them in the dryer.

I bought this front loader Whirlpool dryer a week ago. I was a little surprised to see that the required electric cord need to make it operate was NOT included with the dryer. I got it up and running and used it the next day. Thanks.

Never Best Buy 7/19/2019

The appliance is great. Bought it from Best Buy and will NEVER go back to Best Buy. Whirlpool has not responded to my letter about the retailers that sell Whirlpool appliances. I am disappointed in Whirlpool Corporation for their customer relations.

I couldn't be more happy. Special things I like are the buzzer and the wrinkle-free feature that will come into play when I can't get right to it it. I also love the completely variable heat setting, not only high and low, but every heat level. Thank you, Whirlpool!

Problems with the lint catcher

Leslie M 5/31/2019

The dryer itself drys well; however, the lint catcher does not seem to release properly as it is withdrawn to clean. Our dryer is in a small closet and it is difficult to pull out the entire dryer to clean out the dryer hose each month to clean out all of the lint that has fallen away from the lint catcher to ensure we don' have a fire.
