For price savings, see if you can find a "Scratch and Dent" outlet. You may get a good savings on a cosmetically less than perfect, brand new item that works fine. If the "scratch" or "dent" shows, cover with a magnet or pretty stick-on. It may not even be on the front of your item! This is a great way to shop for all appliances. Along with researching prices, look for a seller that will deliver for free or only a small charge and take away your old one free. Or, enlist the help of handy friends with a truck and some plumbing skills.
