Do I need to leave the washer and dryer the buyer saw in my home?

My Realtor said to give the buyer my washer and dryer when he asked for it. I am still paying on them as they are new. I would like to keep my new ones and leave a set I have in storage but I do not want that to cause problems after sale as we are close to closing.

No. Washer and dryer are not considered fixtures and you can take them when you sell. If the buyer wants them he or she has to pay.
