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.

Solid Appliance

Joe4956 5/6/2021

Have only had the dryer for about three weeks and in that time I has performed well. Cloths come out soft and dry. The gentle cycle is gentle on cloths and also performs well. My only complaints are that the lint filter seems to small for that size dryer and the selection knob for the type of drying you desire is very hard to turn. I'm hopeful that this will free up a little over time. Bottom line this is a good choice for a dryer.

Great dryer

Arg7586 5/4/2021

Bought this dryer as a replacement for a broken dryer. Due to basement I was restricted on choices because of limited space, I did a lot of research and decided on this model. So far I love it. Dries clothes efficiently, even towels a d bedding. Nothing has taken more than an hour and probably less, but I use the timed drying option and set it to 60 mins and clothes are completely dry when I check them. Also like the extended tumble option as well as controlling the end cycle buzzer volume. (I like to throw clothes in before bedtime and nice not to wake to the buzzer if I turn volume down)

Schwarztrauber 5/2/2021

Love that it is simple and easy to use! With all the advancing technology out there I love that this still has dials and it's easy to find the setting you want and no touch screens. It's so simple to use even my grandma could use it!

GREAT washer, again!!!

Wolfcub 5/2/2021

Great machine!! I, again, have control over how much water cleans our clothes, even filling it all the way to the top!! If you do not like the HE washers you have been stuck with buying, this GE washer will be a HUGE surprise for you! I love it!! The motor's noise, mentioned by others in their reviews, is nothing to be concerned about, as it is very minimal!! I am so excites that I can wash like I need to, again!!

Love the big drum

mdsimms 5/1/2021

I just got this GE dryer a couple of days ago. So far I really like it. The drum is bigger than my last GE dryer that I bought in 2014 which is a great dryer also. Just wanted an upgrade. I like that I can adjust the volume of the buzzer. It's quiet.Had to reverse the door opening from left right opening to left opening. Was very easy to do.I hope this dryer lasts as long as my previous GE dryers. Have owned GEs since the '70s. Will always buy GEs. They're good products.

Jaques2021 5/1/2021

I'm very pleased with this product. While many products boast additional features, I enjoy the "less is more" approach. This dryer has everything I need, and has proven to be significantly quieter than what we had before. I typically follow the "more features, more to fix" motto. Highly recommend.
