I just bought a new LG steam front loader washer & dryer. I found the best deal at Sears, but the price of their extended warranties is beyond ridiculous. (Almost $700 to cover the 2 appliances for 5 years. Lowe's offered a similar warranty for only $180.) Anyway, I skipped buying the warranty at Sears since Square Trade offers warranties for large appliances. It would be $199 per appliance, for a total of 5 years coverage. I paid around $850 each for the washer & dryer. I definitely plan on buying the Square Trade extended warranty for the washer, since it seems like so many things can go wrong with front loaders. (My last one died shortly after its 6th birthday.) But, I'm debating on buying the warranty on the dryer, because dryers seem so much simpler than the washer. It just doesn't seem like a dryer would be as prone to a repair problem. Opinions? Should I buy a warranty for the dryer too?
