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.

I have used another brand of washer and dryer for many years so when my dryer quit working I decided to go with GE. I'm so glad I did. This washer and dryer has so many features already programmed in a ton more you can do yourself. I am still learning about it but so far I really like it. Very good brand.

QUICK AND HAS A SANiTIZE MODE

Wmiller700 12/28/2020

Honestly the Sanitize mode alone is worth the price of this dryer. It has saved so many of my sports shirts from being tossed because we couldn't get rid of the smell. My wife is allergic to scented detergents so with or old machine we had to scrub and wash several times for any hope of the shirts coming out clean. This machine, one load on sanitize kills all the smell and allows us to keep the shirts. Huge win.

Great dryer but lacks HomeKit support

Recce93 12/26/2020

The dryer works great, notification sounds are great and the wireless alerts are nice but lack HomeKit integration which is a big disappointment for us being all Mac in the home. Other than needing an additional app for any of the WiFi stuff, the dryer works great. Oh, also wish it cam with the plug, you are going to have to plug it in so I don't know why that is an optional additional accessory.

I LOVE the WiFi feature!

WFH Mom 12/23/2020

I originally bought the washer/dryer set based on the fact that they were on sale, and were stackable. I needed something that would work better in my small laundry room, and increase the amount of space I could actually work/fold laundry in. I had both items delivered within 3 business days of ordering, the delivery drivers were considerate and in and out of my house within 20 mins, and to top it all off...the features! I love the fact that the washer/dryer has built in WiFi features that can connect to my existing Google Home App, and notify me when cycles are complete as well as extend times if needed, right from my phone.

Usmcwife16 12/21/2020

I grew up using GE appliances so when I got married, moved out and it was time to buy my first washer and dryer I saved up to this matching set! They are gorgeous first of all, easy to use, work really well with getting dog hair off from two German Shepard's and it's really convenient being able to have my washer and dryer connected to the app. It saves me so much time to just set up a delay start and have my laundry get done when I get home so it's not just sitting there wet or wrinkled!
