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.

Amazing dryer

Zapman01 4/7/2021

First it does the thing you want a dryer to do. It dries clothes without cooking them. The capacity is well matched with washer. I love the app that let's you know when your ready for the next load. I do wish the maximum volume on the chime was a bit louder. Overall I am super happy about my purchase

I upgraded my washer and dryer and really love the newer features from my other washer/dryer. The steam feature is wonderful . The reduce static is great, no need to buy dryer sheets, just use the dryer balls for even more reduction. Quick dry is wonderful for small load.

Still waiting on it to FOLD my laundry :))

Tannis 3/23/2021

This is our first stackable set we've ever owned and we are so in love it was well worth the purchase. As a family of five we have a lot of laundry, and I am washing clothes at least once a day I got this set go three weeks ago and have still not had to fill up my automatic soap dispenser yet. I am thoroughly impressed. It will do just about everything except fold the laundry. Haven't really noticed anything really different when I use the sanitize mode, but I do honestly think that my towels are softer than before.

The Rolls Royce of washing machines

Dtcap08 3/18/2021

Smell? I don't think so. I'm so impressed with the venting system. While everyone that has a front loader has told me horror stories, I just sit back and breathe a sigh of relief knowing that I will never have that problem.

Poor Quality

A Shively 2/21/2021

We bought the matching set online from Home Depot in early January. They were delivered on 2/10/21 and the dryer door latch mechanism was broken upon arrival. I discovered it when I removed the packaging tape holding the door closed. I spent an hour on the phone to get a replacement dryer shipped. It arrived on 2/17/21 and it too has a broken door latch! I spent over two hours on the phone again trying to get a replacement only to be told the earliest date would be June! I ended up agreeing to have them send a Service Tech to replace the latch this week. I will update my post again once we can actually use the dryer.

Lint Trap

TAS1 2/10/2021

I have absolutely no complaints with the dryer, I love it!! However I'm disappointed in the lint trap. There are 2 clips that hold it locked in place, one of the clips broke the first week I had it. The second clip broke broke after 3 months. I've only had the dryer for 8 months. Lint trap is very cheaply made. If not for the lint trap it would be a definite 5 stars!

Dries very well; steam function works beautifully

LessaK 2/4/2021

I purchased a different model GE washer and dryer in December 2019, that dryer had a defective steam function, and this was a replacement for that dryer. I am overjoyed, because the steam function works so well. I could leave clothes in there overnight or longer, do steam dewrinkle, and they come out very well. Not completely wrinkle free, but noticeably dewrinkled, and I don't need to iron. Love the WIFI feature, it was easy to set up and my phone notifies me when the dryer is done. The color is beautiful. I really don't have anything negative to say. I still need to switch the doors on both the dryer and washer to have them open french door style -- will update if it's overly difficult or doesn't work well. MAIN thing I've learned from this experience is that GE customer service is SPECTACULAR. At least with the representative I was lucky enough to speak with. I've never experienced better customer service. They really care, and because of this I will only purchase GE appliances from now on.
