We have not purchased any appliances since we bought all new appliance about 18 years ago and back then I purchase them through my employer. So I had to vote "No" in the poll for now. I'm not even sure if it was a option back then to purchase appliances online.

I wonder how cost-prohibited and convenient or inconvenient it would be to purchase appliances online now days.
Hope you find our website helpful.

Have not purchased a new appliance over 12 years.   Don't think I ever would.  Any thing I am going to spend a chunk of change on, I want to see & touch.

I've made 3 purchases from Home Depot about a year ago. Direct drive washers when they were on sale. Excellent service. Free shipping. Delivered when promised. Although I wasn't replacing a washer, they will take the old one away for free. I also arranged a washer delivery for an elderly customer of mine and the  same great service. :)

Bought a Maytag Neptune from home Depot, they were the only company that still had the Maytag built Washer. Even got an extended warranty. Wife said are you kidding? You work on them! I told her the board would cost double that if it failed.Warranty was $79.00 for 5 years, 7 years old never a problem.

The only appliance I ever purchased new was my Kenmore 253 fridge from $ears about 5 years ago. I don't usually buy new appliances. I usually find them on craigslist needing repair. I've always done that for friends and family. Saves them money, I make a few bucks/beers. Life is good.

If you buy from say HD or Sears, you probably connect to their local delivery net.  Neither one of those stores inventory appliances for the most part.....they just contract delivery out of the nearest GE, LG, etc central distribution warehouse.   
But if you were to buy an appliance from Sloppy Joes Appliance and Wool Socks.....how does that get delivered?   Who installs or covers warranty or shipping damage????

In some remote areas, people buy online.  Often, you'll get a call from a service co. asking if you can go and install it.  I've done it.  Get a ben, and a trip w/ some scenery. 

I've bought many parts on line, but I'm w/ lowsl2,  I get whole appliances from craiglist free and fix it.

I look for the basic stuff too.  No digital display, and mech. timers.
