What's Inside Matters
For over 100 years, you've heard a lot about their drum rollers and drawer gaskets, their belts and hinges - the commercial grade parts they put inside their appliances. Those parts matter. They make their machines among the most dependable washers, ranges and refrigerators around. Available at AJ Madison.

But they realize you don't serve gaskets at your dinner parties. And that you've probably never fluffed and folded a roller. They know that dependability means something a little more to you than just parts and pieces.

It means having cold champagne to pop when the clock strikes midnight. Having virtually spotless glasses when your friends drop in. And cutting into a perfectly baked cake on your daughter's 10th birthday. It means having all the stuff you depend on clean, cold and cooked - on time, every time.

The way they put their machines together is never going to change. But they understand that the reason you depend on them is not only because of what they put inside them, but also because of what you put inside them.

They get it. What's Inside Matters.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 701 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet, Effective Dryer This is a handsome unit, and it looks especially sharp sitting next to its mate in my laundry room. The dryer does its job dries the clothes and doesn't seem to overdry them. It has a lot of settings, but I've got kids so most of our clothes are durable cotton articles that I hit with the regular cycle. I have no complaints about the performance. The dryer does sing a little song when you open the door, which is probably something that can be disabled. That's something that I'll have to investigate in the manual when I get a chance. Installation of this unit took me several hours and a trip to Home Depot. It does *not* come with a power cord...something that we suspected but could not be sure of, either from the online description or the online installation manual. AJ Madison suggested some power cords as optional accessories when we bought the unit, but it wasn't clear if you needed a cord for sure, or just a new one if your outlet was different than what was included. So for the record, you need a 3 or 4 prong dryer cord, depending on your outlet. Home Depot had a big stack of them for $20. The machine requires a water connection for the steam cycle, which is something that I'm sure I will use only rarely. So that's an extra complication, but the machine comes with the required hoses and it's really not that hard. The instructions are easy to follow, it's just a matter of going through them carefully and not rushing anything. 5/18/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the space and dry clothes very well in short time I purchased this 4 months ago and very please with so far. 4/30/14
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not All It's Cracked Up To Be The washer doesn't wash clothes well. It leaves detergent marks all over the clothes. I have to sometimes wash the clothes a second time and the marks are still in the same place as if they haven't moved. You can tell they don't get agitated because if you put a pair of pants in there that have been folded at the seam, they are in the same position when the cycle is done. I have to turn all of my dark clothes inside out so that the white marks are on the inside. The dryer isn't so great. You can run a full cycle for delicate's and they are not dry. The only cycle that actually dries is the normal cycle which i don't want to use on my work clothes. I've done this once and it shrank all of my clothes that I can now no longer wear. I had a Maytag set that was over ten years old. I bought the new set so that I could give my son my old set. He just moved in to his first apartment and I felt it was time for a new set for myself. Really wish I had the old set back. Agitators work much better on cleaning clothes. Also, I tried washing my quilt in the new one. (They are supposed to be so much better for large bulky items). What a joke! It kept getting off balance and the only way to get it back on balance was to keep repositioning the quilt and start the cycle over again. It would not remove the off balance light without starting the cycle over again. I was sweating by the time this was over. The tub is so deep I have to stand on my tip toes to reach down in there and a quilt full of water is very heavy and awkward to try and reposition. 12/27/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features The Bravo is quiet and efficient with water which is nice living on a cistern. It's large size makes it nice when we wash our Wolfhounds bedding! And my wife loves it. 11/2/14
