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.

Highly recommended

Submitted by carynshaffer - 10/2/2019

A washing machine – who would ever get excited about a washing machine! As an owner of several Samsung products, we were anxious to try the new Samsung washing machine. With its many settings, it is very easy to do the laundry in the most efficient way for whatever type of load that I have. The "Sanitize" setting is particularly appealing. I have never had a machine with the "Self-clean" setting. That is proving to be an asset to my laundry experience. The wireless function, which we use for other Samsung products, comes in handy as well. I can check to see how my machine is doing when I am not even near the machine. As it is a self-loading machine, it is easier than my old machine to load and unload. I recommend this machine.

Received our washer this past weekend. My wife and I went thru the manual to see what functions and wash cycles it has. Very impressed with the 12 wash cycles. You can even modify the wash cycles based on your individual needs, like adding pre soak, steam or super speed when you need to shorten the wash time. Another great feature that we used is the delay end funtion where you can choose a delay between 1 to 24hrs. You can also download additional wash cycles such as thin bedding, towel sanitize.I am impressed with the Wi-Fi connectivity. I downloaded the SmartThings app and was able to easy connect to the washer. It was super easy to connect to the SmartThings app and register my washer. With the SmartThings app I am able to see remaining wash time and provides a notification when cycle is complete. It also has a fancy tune that plays at end of washing cycles unlike the usual single long beep. My next venture will be to play around with Bixby. The control panels is easy to read and very simple to use. The buttons respond with the slightest touch. It also has the child lock that we have put to good use as we have a 3yr old grandson that loves to try and get inside and is unable due to this great feature.

Black Beauty

Submitted by DaisyPorter - 9/26/2019

The sleek design of this front load washer not only looks amazing but does an amazing job. From the moment my washer was installed, I had a jaw dropping experience. I was just so excited about giving my new washer it's first load. The cleaning performance of this washer was amazing. My clothes looked and smelled so clean. It was super simple to operate. No buttons too push just a simple touch. The wash cycle features are features that are necessary in everyday washing. The wash cycles coincides to the wash levels. I truly love all the features this washer has from the steam cycle to the water jet cycle, etc. This is the most, amazing washer I have ever owned. When family and friends come over my house, i quickly take them to see my new Washer. I never thought that I could fall in love with a washing machine but I have. I will continue to share my recommendations of this washer with family and friends through word of mouth and social media.

Great Washer

Submitted by las384 - 9/26/2019

The first thing I noticed upon having the new Samsung Washer r installed was how beautiful it looks. My wife and I selected the black stainless model and it is striking. So much so that we've been leaving the doors open in the area where the washer resides. The beauty of the machines however is not the best part – who would have thought that the washer could be improved after all these years, but improved it is. Wireless connectivity and sanitizing are but of few of the enhancements. The washer is simple to use and while I read the instructions, it really isn't necessary – these are very easy machines to use. In putting up the first load, we immediately noticed how quiet the washer is. If the washer was placed in the basement that might not be a factor, but ours is installed just off the kitchen and our old washer out the sound of the TV. No longer a problem. We have tested most of the extra features. Sanitizing is a big hit. The wireless functions work off the Samsung app, which we already use for our cook top, Galaxy watch and several Samsung TV's. It is a good feature that allows you to track the washer's progress and also to extend the time if you get tied up doing something else .The capacity on the washer is also terrific - it is a large machine. This a great machine and which I highly recommend.

First Use Review

Submitted by tobyrowe - 9/26/2019

Delivery and installation was Friday and went just as promised, on time and old washer was hauled away, installer made sure it was functioning before leaving, it was then that I had time to look at how nice the washer looks in black stainless. I then took the time to read the owners/users manual to get familiar with the function and also to discover the Bixby wifi feature,After downloading the "Smart thing app" and following the prompts my new washer was connected to our home wifi and time to explore, the app appears to be a mostly monitoring feature to tell you what the washer is doing at the time of operation which is nice, a delayed start feature would have been nice but the feature as is is great.Note,: the washer has to be turned on for full functions to be enabled, so more to come on this feature as it gets tested.First use of the washer went great this washer has a large capacity tub which i found great to cut down on the number of loads I had to do without comprise to wash quality.The one thing i noticed first is the buttons such as the power are soft touch and took a few tries to realize that it was responding to my touch without much effort, this is the first upgrade from our previous washer. The washer itself is extremely quiet and went about doing the cycle without any noticeable noise including the spin cycle, the end of cycle alarm is pleasant instead of the buzzer. First use review is I Love this washer both in appearance and operation, so more to come

Winning Washer

Submitted by RosaZurita - 9/26/2019

I love the washer overall. The digital controls are such an improvement over my old washer's controls. The different cycles are great to help me get the clothes just the way I need them. The detergent tray makes adding detergent easy. The safety feature of locking during the cycles keeps the children from opening it accidentally. Being able to stack items on top gives me more storage options. It operates so smoothly I don't even know it is running at times. What a great investment overall.

What an upgrade!

Submitted by mookiejt - 9/26/2019

Clearly a great looking washer, with options to spare. I love all the control you have with the options available too. My wife always wanted a front load and she seems happy with it except for one thing -- it is a little awkward to get clothes out. The pedestal is definitely something we will invest in to raise the washer and allow for better access. That has got to be one of the only drawbacks so far. Another may be the fact that the water isn't readily available to dilute fabric softener (unlike top load). It is so quiet I sometimes don't know it is running. Like the dryer and its smart connection, it is definitely a bonus to get notifications on the phone when the cycle is complete -- no more running up and down stairs to check if clothes are done.

Samsung Washer is a beast of a machine!

Submitted by ChowdhuryK - 9/20/2019

I would like to begin my testimonial by giving thanks to Samsung for making a great product. Machine is incredibly easy to operate with incredible cleaning power. This is the best washer I have used in my lifetime. You can operate the washer remotely if you're using the same WiFi. After wash is complete, you get a notification on your phone that wash is complete. I'm very satisfied with the product and I love it.

Clean at last

Submitted by bpearce2001 - 9/20/2019

I love this washer! I saved up a ton of laundry knowing my new washer was going to be delivered soon. So I had a bunch of dirty clothes to put this washer through its paces. Learning to operate it was easy. Plenty of presets for just about every load imaginable. This makes setting the cycle a breeze. The washer is very quiet and with the laundry room door closed, I can't hear it at all. One of my favorite features on the Samsung Washer is the text notifications. I had a hard time hearing the buzz on my old washer and love getting a text instead. Another feature I really love is being able to put a load of laundry in the washer and have it finish at a preset time. Great feature if you are going to be gone and don't want your wet clothes sitting in the washer for hours. I can throw in a load and set the machine to finish at 6:00, just when I'm ready to deal with it. Very convenient! The 5.0 cu. ft. capacity of this washer is amazing. I used to take my comforter to the laundromat to wash it because my old washer couldn't handle it. But not so with this washer. The washer handled the comforter like it was a load of socks. Yeah, you might be saying, but does it clean? It sure does! When I washed a load of towels for the first time in the Samsung washer, I noticed a huge difference. When I would take the towels out of my old washer, they always felt like they still had soap on them, even though I added an extra rinse and only used about a tablespoon of detergent. Believe it or not, I used to manually add water to the rinse cycle of my old machine in order to make sure the soap got rinsed out. How crazy is that? Unfortunately, out of the dryer they were stiff and scratchy. I don't use fabric softener on my towels, so I figured that was part of the problem. However, when they came out of the dryer this time, they were soft! It didn't feel like they still had soap on them either. For the first time in a very long time, my towels felt clean. I thought it would take several washings to make them feel clean and soft again, but based on how soft they are now, I think this washer did a great job the first time! There are still features I haven't played with yet, but overall I'm really happy with my new Samsung washer. Whoever said laundry couldn't be fun?

Samsung washer

Submitted by Liz4266 - 9/20/2019

This washing machine has so many features that I have only scratched the surface as to what this machine can do. Deciding if it's a small load or large load is no longer a problem. The machine detects the size and will definitely save on water usage. Watching the machine use such little water concerned me, at first, but the cloths were clean and fresh with minimal water usage. The spin cycle is amazing. The cloths come out almost dry, reducing the amount of time they need to be in the dryer. But if you have the option to reduce the spin level in case you have delicate items that you may not want to have spinning. The different wash cycles have preset temps, rinse and spin levels but you have the opportunity to customize each one before starting. The Smart Things app is a must have. You can monitor the time on the cycle as well as change any settings while not having to be at the machine. You also receive notifications when the cycles are complete. I can't wait to work through all of the things this machine can do.

Laundry Innovation

Submitted by JADIVER4 - 9/20/2019

I recently received this new Samsung Smart Washer and I must admit, I am loving the laundry chore again because it is now too easy. The technology inside this machine is innovative and intuitive yet very user friendly. If you have a Galaxy device, you can control and monitor your washer from anywhere, download laundry presets to the machine for just about anything you want to wash and it will just do your laundry. The only thin you have to do is open the door and put the clothes in, then wait for the buzz. I am sitting 10 feet away from the machine and will only hear it when water is going in. It is super quiet. I have the 5.0 cu.ft model and it can take a large load, it took a whole basket at once. That is such a major impact on my laundry day as we are a family of four (4) with two very active toddlers. Best points on this machine - Large capacity - Quietness - Connectivity - Ease of use - Functionality - Speed - Child lock function Also, the eco mode makes conserving energy the norm rather than the exception and the child lock for me is critical for the safety of my precious little ones

Smart washer

Submitted by Rcastro1850 - 9/19/2019

This washer is more than a pretty face. Don't get me wrong, it is definitely got a sleek modern look but it's so much more. My favorite thing is how fast this washer can wash a load of laundry. A normal load washes in 45 min and quick wash is only 22 minutes. Another really great feature I never knew I needed was the drum light. When you open the door the light comes on making it possible to see what your doing without turning on all the lights. One really cool feature is the delay feature. It's great when your hubby decides we need to go somewhere when I'm about to start a load of clothes. Using the delay feature, I can let it know when I want this load to finish and its ready for the dryer when I return. This washer even has an app available. I can go over to check on my mom next door and when my clothes are finished with their cycle, it will send me a notification. This washer has beauty and brains and as a bonus, it sings alittle song when its done because its always over when the fat lady sings!!
