i purchased a washer/dryer and a dishwasher from Edmonds a couple of years back. i was and am very happy with not only the units, but my experience dealing with Edmonds and the great service technicians that installed my appliances. In comparison to my experience with another "top" appliance retailer here in the lower mainland, it was a good day. i know miele appliances cost more that your kitchenaid, but boy... i find they are worth the money. Edmonds staff came and took the old appliances out and installed the new units carefully and with no muss or fuss. they were careful with my surroundings, happy, funny and let me know exactly what they were doing all the time. i have not had a lick of trouble since. some of the other companies have the slick radio ads but do not get bamboozled.
