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.

11/18/2018

This dryer is much more powerful than our old machine. A 35-minute medium heat cycle is sufficient to dry a large load including towels and jeans. The interior light stays on when the door is open I do wish theres a way to switch it off so we can leave the door ajar as when the kids dont shut it and not worried about the light bulb burned out. We also stacked this dryer on top of the washer am glad that I 55 can reach the dryer just fine.

Great Dryer

11/17/2018

We purchased this dryer along with the matching washer as a stacked set to make our laundry room feel more spacious. I love how quiet this dryer is and how quickly it dries a family-sized load of laundry. My husbands favorite feature is the steam cycle. Instead of ironing you can stick your clothes in the dryer on a quick steam cycle and they come out looking great

BEST DRYER WE HAVE EVER OWNED

11/13/2018

This dryer does the job well. It has many good features like steam for wrinkles. However I do prefer the simpler older models of dryer and washer too. Ever since Energy Star and energy efficient the washers dont work as well and the controls are too compllicated. If someone brought back the old simple dial washers and dryers consumers would buy them out You have to go to second hand to get them now.

Have been using this dryer now for over a month and really like it. Very easy to understand the operation and does a great job drying. Used the steam feature to take rinkles out of a few items that had been in our closet for awhile. I very easy to set up and did a wonderful job of removing those wrinkles.

Very Disappointed in GE

9/18/2018

We loved it at first. It looks sharp and has great features however we started having problems in the first week. We may have ended up with a dud. It started overheating the first time we did a load of bulkier clothing only a few items we did not overload it. I didnt think this would be an issue considering our 15 year old dryer could handle it and this one has a Bulky Items setting. Mid cycle we hear it start to click which sounded like electrical contacts then it would stop wait a while and later start up again. When inspecting it to see what was going on the back right upper corner was very hot. Almost unacceptably hot. We decided perhaps this is a safety feature since we were drying bulky items after all. Then later we let it cool down and did a load of sheets. A load of laundry does not get lighter than sheets. It has continued to do this with every load and the only setting that it doesnt do this on is the lowest of low heat settings. Very disappointed in GE. Well have a tech here next week and hopefully a repair or replacement will work. If not we may have to switch brands.

First time in a long time we had a dryer actually dry our cloths in the time given on the display. Our dryers in the past often needed an extra 15 minutes or so to complete the drying of our clothes. The GE REALLY delivers I used the steam method when I left my pants for a day and it really did a great job of getting wrinkles out

This dryer was a replacement recommended by our home insurance. We have never had a dryer with a steam and sanitize feature before and we love it The dryer hooks directly into the washer line so the water is added automatically. The steam feature makes it easy to remove wrinkles in a short period of time. We are thrilled to finally not have to break out the iron. The dryer capacity is also larger than any weve had before so clothes dry quicker as well. We highly recommend this dryer.
