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.

Great dryer washer too

12/6/2018

I chose this dryer matching washer due to the attached pedestal I love it The dryer washer features are great - love the detangle setting for sheets default settings for each load type good but like having the flexibility to adjust each default setting. But I love the pedestal Great compromise between none the usual 15 high storage pedestals. Great for the back

Right Height right name

2/28/2018

Calling these units Right Height is so appropriate and helpful. It is also a magnificent size no more over loading and scrunched up clothes. Even the sheets and towels come out not in knots One thing I really would like to have is a LOUDER alarm sound telling me the clothes are dry. If anything else is going on in the house it is impossible to hear the tweedling of the bells.

Perfect size and functions

I purchased the set a couple of months ago and have loved them from the beginning. The height is perfect for loading and unloading. The dryer has every setting you could possibly want. The size is amazing for doing large loads and king size bedding.

More than we need but love it

1/10/2018

Ordered this model after reading reviews. This is our 3rd GE and are happy with our choice. Loads of features for a wide variety of materials load sizes and configuration with the ability to customize as needed. Havent used the steam feature for wrinkles yet. Only 2 really minor things- the tone to isnt adjustable so I dont always hear the end of the cycle tone and the door catch seems light duty but time will tell. You have to slam the door shut to make sure that it is closed. But once its latched it stays closed. Very happy with our purchase.

Nice options but...

1/10/2018

Although this has several nice drying features to select from it runs hot. We have to dry it on a low setting and damp but then that only runs for about 15 minutes then it beeps a really high pitch to tell us it is done but the clothes are fully dry. Repeat this cycle a few times and then the clothes are dry or slighty damp without being hot and shrinking. If not worried about the temperature shrinking clothes then it works great for other things like sheets rugs and all that other bulky items.

Nice dryer

I like the dryer but all the features seem overkill. The sensor setting doesnt really seem to work. I still have to run it longer to get completely dry on that cycle.

Dry Clothing Quick

1/1/2018

I believe this dryer will pay for itself. I can try a load of heavy clothes in about 30 minutes where as before would take about 1 hour and 30 minutes. I like the steam feature for clothes that need a little steaming and then hang them up which saves ironing time. Although this doesnt work on everything still impressive.

Great Dryer

12/9/2017

Very pleased with Dryer. I have not used all the steam features but I do love the fact that when I dry a load of towels they actually dry throughly via the Towel cycle without having to add additional time. The drying cycles actually work the way they are intended too Also it is large enough to dry the king size bed mattress covers. Now I dont have to go to the laundry mat.
