Then we took advantage of the early Memorial Day sale to purchase a basic GE set: this top-load washer for for $449 and this gas dryer for $549. Overall, the price ended up being around $1200, since we also needed to pay for a plumber to install the gas dryer (one of the quirks of living in an older home) and some odds and ends. I'm glad that we went in person rather than buying online, since the salesperson was able to explain the complicated delivery/install process and could make sure that we got all the necessary extra parts.
