Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

HelenLovesGE 6/24/2020

This washer is the answer to anyone that had stinky front load washers in the past. I swore I would never have another one then GE came out with this model. With the new gasket & vent mold and mildew will not grow and you can actually CLOSE your door. I have already used it a few times and can't believe how quite it is...CLEAN CLOTHES FINALLY!!

Sna1384 6/23/2020

I've had it less than a month. It takes a little time to get to know why type of drying works best for the clothes and things you are drying. It seems to work much more efficiently for me now. The only downside so far is the lint not getting down into the lint trap and also having to

OMGDRB 6/21/2020

We replaced our 15 yr old Kenmore High capacity washer and dryer with this GE set. The clothes dry much faster than in our old unit. The kids are surprised and bummed out that it dries their clothes so fast. They now have to pay attention when doing their laundry. We like all of the extra settings this unit provides, too.

Time to get use to

BryD 6/17/2020

I have had it for a a few weeks and have nothing Really bad to say, but wish for less complex settings. I can't seem to find a good setting for everyday loads. That after they cool off they don't have that cool damp feel. I miss my old dryer with the normal, 42 min more dry setting. It worked with all loads and seems to be a feature on most other brand dryers.

Does a good job

ellbeeintn 6/11/2020

Does a good job getting my clothes dry. I like that it doesn't make an obnoxious beeping sound when it's done but has a pleasant chime. Filter catches a lot of fuzz but due to its design can be a big awkward to open up and clean if you don't have a table nearby. One reason I purchased is that doors are reversible. Many older homes like mine have dryer vent on the left of the washer. I haven't swapped the door around yet but plan to in the near future.

Enjoy Laundry

Jepsen 6/2/2020

I have used my new washer and dryer (same models) and have enjoyed them! The inky problem I have is using the app. I can't seem to do the laundry with the app. That's my only complaint for both. The good news about the app is it has helped me stay on track by notifying me when laundry is done. This alone has sped up my time doing laundry. It doesn't take all day now because I don't forget about laundry!

Have to get used to extra features and intuitiveness of the dryer. It out-thinks me and at times, is confusing. Performs well if it would do what you tell it to do rather than deciding for you. I'm sure it's me not having yet read directions and will be great when I figure everything out.

It dries clothes?

atruebond 5/26/2020

Its new so it dries my clothes faster than what my now busted dryer did before it went out. Natural right? I would say that I do not care for the lint trap. Item feels cheap and I suspect I will need to replace it just past warranty. Unit has WFI built in but is the most annoying thing. DING. Your clothes are 5 mins from being done. DING Your clothes are done. DING. Your clothes have been sitting for 5 minutes done. DING. Your clothes have sat for 30 minutes. Very annoying.

Dries quickly!

Huffdryer22 5/26/2020

This dries so quickly and efficiently! I love it! The lint catcher is a bit clumsy to empty. The dryer is quiet and the controls are easy. We downloaded the app and we get notifications when the clothes are done. And can remotely tell it to tumble care to eliminate wrinkles if we are not able to immediately take the clothes out. We did change the door hinge side (from a right-wing to a left-hinge). You need special universal swivel socket and ratchet to disassemble the whole hinge. It was not easy and I had my husband help. Either way, this was a great buy.
