given that my washer drain line has popped out twice while draining, I'll be happy to pay $20 for peace of mind. Thanks to all for their suggestions!

Lowes will strap those down tight so that shouldn't happen again...or have for me anyway. No charge extra.

We just bought a new washer/dryer around Labor Day. Like you, I saw that everyone was basically at the same price--and if they weren't they'd all match a competitor's price anyway. We ultimately bought ours from Sears (Beaver Creek, but any Sears will do) not because of price or installation (again, no differentiation there) but because of warranty. Sears does all of their own warranty work whereas the other guys just farm it out to the cheapest labor around.

To other posters point: we had recently bought stainless-steel braided hoses, about a year old but they weren't brand new. In the store they initially mentioned a requirement to purchase new hoses, but when I told them I had relatively new stainless steel hoses they didn't push back and the installers used the ones I had. They did, however, put a brand new electric cord on the dryer (for free).
