    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 and 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.

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

    It dries clothes?

    Submitted by 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!

    Submitted by 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.

    Exceeded expectations

    Submitted by Hayley718 - 5/26/2020

    We love our set. Haven't had any issues, aside from a little difficulty leveling the feet (but it was more to do with what tools we had available, not the machines fault). Runs great, if not a little long of a cycle. Things come out feeling clean. Looks sleek and modern. The WiFi text alerts was fun, and something we hadn't realized the set did before it was delivered!

    Nice Dryer

    Submitted by mominator - 5/21/2020

    Replaced a 5 year old Samsung with this. So far it works so much better. I didn't give it 5 stars, because I don't like that the end cycle sound is too low, and I have it on the loudest setting available. Other than that, it seems like a good dryer.

    We have had our new washer & dryer set for a month now and could not be happier. We love the quick dry setting. I just wish you could hear the bell go off when the machine is done, even with the volume all the way you can not hear it. I had the app loaded onto my phone and had to remove it, as it drove me crazy with sending me alerts every few minutes.

    Submitted by jsmith81 - 5/10/2020

    This dryer replaced a much more expensive dryer from another manufacturer and so far we are not disappointed with it. The only thing I miss from my previous dryer is the steam options, so I might have opted for the more expensive model of this. Dry times are quick and wifi connectivity is awesome.

    Submitted by fnotneyrod - 5/5/2020

    We had to remove doors to get it into the laundry area. Once installed, atop the washer, the dryer controls are too high to see clearly and require a stool. In order to use WiFi you need to purchase additional components at a cost of $50 each, for the washer and the dryer. Otherwise the dryer works great.

    Love it

    Submitted by Claudothy - 4/19/2020

    This is our second washer and dryer set and after one day I'm already impressed. Granted our first set was from a yard sale previously used. Don't they work fine for 7 years plus however long before we purchased them. But enough about that. This set of GE washer and dryer has been everything we expected and more I love the sanitize feature especially in this time of the plague as I work in retail and I'm considered essential. I can come home from work and only wash the clothes I wore or because of the higher capacity can wash and dry a bigger load. I haven't tested out all the features including the Wi-Fi setting but only after a handful of loads I'm already impressed. Well worth the money I spent on them.

    This is amazing dryer! Can dry even the biggest loads in 40-60 minutes! Had many different features including a clothing sanitizing option in which is perfect for healthcare workers! It can connect to wifi and a application on your phone which is new age and awesome.

    Giant Dryer

    This Dryer is huge and it dries our clothes in no time at all. The lint trap actually traps the link unlike our last dryer. We are very happy with it.
